#2306485 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by Hiei on 11 June 2012 - 02:48 AM

the MLive article seemed to show Jason Garrison available too from Florida. If Tallon doesn't throw the bank at him, I'd like to see Detroit take a run at him. Easily the #1 defenceman on the Panthers last year. He's big, scored a lot of goals last year.

#2305080 Tim Thomas.

I'll give it a shot that he runs for some kind of Political Office. as a member of the Teabag friendly GOP. Anyone care to digress with me on what he might actually do?


#2305077 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by Hiei on 03 June 2012 - 10:58 PM

I will GUARANTEE YOU THIS.


THE NUMBER 5 WILL NO LONGER BE WORN BY ANOTHER DETROIT RED WING, AS IT WILL SMILE DOWN UPON AND GUIDE OUR PLAYERS GOING FORWARD. IT WILL SERVE AS A SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE, A MEASURING STICK BY WHICH ALL DEFENCEMEN GOING FORWARD WILL BE MEASURED. IT WILL STAND FOR AS LONG AS THE CITY OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN SHALL STAND. IT WILL STAND FOR HOCKEYTOWN.


#2304141 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Like Yzerman...like Lidstrom. We fail him out in the first round.

Holland, you said you would retire when Lidstrom retires. LET'S SEE IT.


#2298152 #4 Nashville Predators vs. #3 Phoenix Coyotes

Posted by Hiei on 29 April 2012 - 11:26 PM

The Coyotes are doing something the Wings failed to do. Nashville is playing the same.

One Problem.

When we go to the net, it's one shot then Nashville gets Pekkerhead's awful rebounds and gets out of the zone.

When Phoenix goes to the net, they get one shot, then at least 1-2 other guys trailing in to get those rebounds. LOOK AT ALL THE REBOUNDS PEKKERHEAD'S BEEN GIVING UP.


Or since it's the south, maybe it should be PeKKKerhead.

Posted by Hiei on 23 April 2012 - 10:28 PM

We may be out.

But we have COMPANY!

the Blowcouver Casucks have joined us

the San No(cup)Se Guppies have joined us

the s***tsburgh Concussions...er, sorry, Crysbys have joined us

And now welcome in the BLACKHAWK DOWNS!

All of a sudden, this whole being-out-of-the-playoffs thing isn't so bad. We're gonna make our GM do something or get fired, and all the teams we hate are now out of it too!


EVERYONE SING ALONG!!!

DUH-DUH-DUH, DUH-DUH-DUH, DUH-DUHDUH-DUHDUHHHHHHHH-DONE!

Seriously? That is a short list of every goon in the league.


He forgot steve macintyre. I'd love to see DIESEL in a Red Wings uni.

Yo momma's so fat you have to take a train and 2 buses just to get on her good side.


#2293061 #5 Philadelphia Flyers vs. #4 Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Hiei on 19 April 2012 - 11:31 PM

I think the Refs have been given direction from Buttman and Shanny to start cutting way down on the fighting that's been going on.

And all this could've been probably avoided had Weber gotten at least 2 games for his action in game 1 of the playoffs. Precedent was set. Hopefully now we've learned from it and we're moving forward.


#2293032 Too many damn pretty boys

Posted by Hiei on 19 April 2012 - 10:11 PM

If Holland doesn't do justice and pick up some POWER FORWARDS, WRECKERS, OR PHYSICALITY, we've got a big problem...and Illitch needs not waste his time in Firing Holland. The same man who told us all "I'll retire when Lidstrom retires" had better have his money where his mouth is. WE AS A FANBASE SHOULD NOT PUT UP WITH SUB-PAR MANAGEMENT, AND I EXPECT MR AND MRS ILLITCH TO DO THE SAME.


#2292569 Too many damn pretty boys

Posted by Hiei on 18 April 2012 - 08:54 PM

Taken from my post last night in the holland's offseason plan topic:


It is glaringly obvious to me, several others on this forum, and should be to YOU READING THIS NOW, that we need to have a 3rd line or 4th line that needs WRECKERS. Not goons, not speed guys, we need a 3rd line of guys who can:

1. Play the body and win in a collision
2. Shore up team grit
3. Stand up for Howard and stop the snow showering/running bs, because Howard is the only enforcer of the crease we seem to have.
4. Have enough puck handling ability to scoop the biscuit away from a hit player and transition down the ice.

Start naming players and send it off to Holland and Illitch's offices.


#2291807 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by Hiei on 17 April 2012 - 10:56 PM

I hate to say this....As a Bears Fan it gave me pleasure to see the soul-less, shocked, out of touch look on FORMER GM Jerry Angelo's face after the Bears were taken in OT by the Denver Tebows last year....and Angelo is now GONE FROM CHICAGO.


If this series should end on Friday, and it gives Holland a soul-less, shocked, out of touch look to go in front of Mike and Marian Illitch and all of Detroit and explain what happened....I might cheer for him to get canned.

Since 2008 and 2009, when we lost The Drake, Lilja, Downey, McCarty, and others that contributed to our hitting stats and team grit, We've lost in the 2nd round twice to a team that covered our goalie in snow showers and didn't have to answer for it. and Now we're losing to a team that is well-coached, but we haven't punched them in the teeth over it. It is glaringly obvious to me, several others on this forum, and should be to YOU READING THIS NOW, that we need to have a 3rd line or 4th line that needs WRECKERS. Not goons, not speed guys, we need a 3rd line of guys who can:

1. Play the body and win in a collision
2. Shore up team grit
3. Stand up for Howard and stop the snow showering/running bs, because Howard is the only enforcer of the crease we seem to have.
4. Have enough puck handling ability to scoop the biscuit away from a hit player and transition down the ice.

I cannot excuse Franzen's contract. Yes, he led the team in goals. The team spreads the goals around, so we don't have any 30-40-50 goal scorers. Perhaps we need to goad Franzen into USING HIS SIZE MORE OFTEN. When you're big and strong like a mule, you should be able to motor over someone like a mule. a POWER FORWARD. Shanahan wasn't Mule's size, but he sure did play with heart and...Won in a collision and showed us some true grit while scoring goals....

The top 2 lines should be easier addressed. Z, Pasha, Franzenstein (if he can use his size) i would put as our top 3 forwards. Bert....I think Bert needs to get mean again or get out. Cleary's been injured/less than 100%, but by god you can't say he didn't try this series. Our forwards need to start crashing the net. Not just having our D check up and get closer to the dots to shoot rebounds. That leaves us open for odd man rushes.

oh, and some CENTERS WHO CAN WIN FACEOFFS.

As far as our D Corps/coaching, Lidstrom is either gone this year or next. Stuart is gone to California after this year. Smith needs to come up next year and STAY UP. Ericsson needs to PLAY LIKE THE BIG BODY HE IS (look to Fischer for guidance) Kronwall will keep murdering people. White needs to become more defensively disciplined. Otherwise he's Rafalski without the offensive upside making us forget about his defensive lapses. Who would we pick from this year's crop of FA d-men to try and replace or effectively conceal our upcoming even more glaring D Holes?
