In Topic: Confused on the direction of this team going forward

12 July 2014 - 07:27 AM

That is the funniest thing I have seen forever. How the hell does someone come up with such a creative concept and then execute it so well? Way to go, Flashy.

In Topic: Hollands new contract a no brainer?

03 July 2014 - 03:30 PM

It's easy to like (or hate) the moves a GM makes in July. I will reserve judgment on whether Yzerman or Nill is better than Holland until we see how their teams do in the coming season(s). At this point neither looks to be close to a Stanley Cup. Neither do we, but at least under Holland we have won Cups, and I don't think even the Holland haters would argue that we have failed to draft and develop good prospects in the past five years.


I am not convinced that Spezza and Hemsky are going to magically become playoff points producers for Dallas. Yzerman's moves this week look OK on paper but again, until he achieves some tangible results better than a first-round loss and a few more regular-season points than Detroit, I think it's early to be saying he would be a better GM than the one we have.

In Topic: Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

I'm not advocating for Ekblad, but I think most if not all hockey scouts would say he has way more upside than DeK, Smith, Ouellet and Sproul. They all have potential to be a first-pair d-man; Ekblad has potential to be a Norris winner.

In Topic: Wings officially have vacancy in asst coach spot

20 June 2014 - 10:22 AM

Jiri Fischer might be a dark horse candidate. He was worked with our young d-men and seems to be rising through the org. But that said, I'd prefer a career coach type, and I think that's the direction Babs will go.

In Topic: Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

15 June 2014 - 11:51 AM

If there was a "local boy" available right now who was a 21-year-old free agent and as good as Nosek apparently is, then the Wings could be criticized. Clearly, however, there isn't any such player available.
