#2538594 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 06 October 2014 - 04:21 PM

I wish we would trade either Helm or Abdelkader or a pick or two. They're both getting pretty redundant. If one of them were let go, I'd like to see:


Zetterberg Datsyuk Helm/Abdelkader

Nyquist Weiss Franzen

Tatar Sheahan Jurco








Not putting Weiss in the lineup would be incredibly stupid. I think he played well in the preseason despite only 1 assist. It took Hossa a little bit to mesh with the team, it'll take Weiss even longer and not even having him start the season would be a huge blow to his morale. Thankfully I think Babcock is just sending a message, he'll be in.


Just like demoting Weiss after not registering a point while given third line minutes with Kevinf****** Porter on his wing. 


How is it that he didn't lead the team in points with opportunities like that?


Babcock has a history of giving 2nd line centers s***ty wingers and being confused when they don't produce.

#2535388 Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 September 2014 - 03:59 PM

Protect Mrazek over Howard all day...


I believe that a team can only lose ONE player, so if someone picked up Franzen, then no one else can be picked (of those left unprotected.)

#2504091 The Edmonton Oilers Mystery

Posted by marcaractac on 31 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

Too many of the same kind of player. All these number one picks, keep drafting the highest rated player rather than draft what they need. To this day I don't get why they drafted Yakupov. They should have drafted a Dman. 


That is just the problem with the team itself. Their management is an absolute mess. They need to start over right from the top. They have a lot of good players, and can quickly turn it around with the right people in charge. A few of the right trades and they are a much better team. It isn't like they don't have the assets. 

#2488779 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 01:12 PM

LeBrun just tweeted that Moulson NOT at practice today, but GM says no deal in place....Hmmmm...


Kings or Blues bound I would say


Next ones Hodgoson, Myers and Ehrhoff after that their team will be historically bad like desasterous.

#2473727 Carter Hutton's Save of the Year

Nice save, but if the Flyers' player gets off a real shot there then that goes in the back of the net.

Enforcers don't deter anything yet they are everywhere in the league.  Why?



#2308033 Darren Helm signs 4 year extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 19 June 2012 - 11:27 AM

Honestly, I was hoping for a more of a $1.5M Cap hit, I know he is a solid player and is good at what he does, but I just don't think he earned a raise over twice what he was payed last season...I guess we will see in 4 years if he is outplaying this $2.1M. It's not that he isn't worth it, it's just needed cap space to make this team better... If Holland overpays Quincey, I will have an ulcer... I hope he keeps Abby at a modest pay...I am hoping for $1.1, but after this, I am seeing $1.8M... sorry guys, not being negative, it's just needed cap space, or maybe sign the big UFA's first and then pay your guys a bit of a inflated contract, thats all I am saying...of course after re-signing Bertuzzi at too much money, I should have seen this coming...

NO QUINCEY!!! NO HUDLER!!! Please God! Please Holland! PLEASE!!!!

EDIT: Also, do you now realize what it's going to take to re-sign Filppula? He will get at least $5M...that is the problem here, (and not just Holland) keep overpaying and the NHL will go belly up... I honestly see a point where the guys making $500,000 today will be at $2M within a couple of years...Hey Minny, go ahead a give Parise the world, ruin the NHL (again.)

#2189625 Babcock "pissed off" about Burns-to-SJ

Posted by dobbles on 25 June 2011 - 11:55 AM

while i don't mean to interrupt the awesome hyperbole of lgw, both sides of this are understandable. i could even see babcock being disappointed and making those comments. burns isn't the next lidstrom, but is one of the better realistic options to replace rafalski. many thought he wouldnt be moved, so when he was, and for a pretty reasonable package, it raises eyebrows. i think a lot of people feel like a package built around filppula (or MAYBE hudler) could have been assembled that was similar to what SJ got. personally, i think the wings could have made a similar/better offer. many people are saying we would have to offer franzen, however, i think people that suggest that are over-valuing setoguchi. while goal scorers are a rare commodity, he has pretty pedestrian numbers overall aside from his 30 goal season. if you look at the production the last 2 years, he has been comparable to flip.

for a lot of people this was a big missed opportunity. thats why people are so passionate. we all just want to see the red wings be the best team possible. unfortunately, we all have differing opinions of what that entails.

#2189390 2011 NHL Draft: Round 1 Discussion

Posted by USAFWingedWheel on 24 June 2011 - 11:05 PM

if you read the post before you just hit neg, I said disappointed THUS FAR... He says he needs to replace Rafalski, yet when a great player is available, he balks. Holland could've offered more than the Sharks did for Burns but for some reason he won't budge on his "core." That is why most teams get better every year and the Wings don't. I am ready for July 1st, but THUS FAR, Holland spewed a bunch of crap about making deals on draft day only to trade down so he can draft Haken Pupen and Bojrn Swappin Nutt in the second round... I am THUS FAR disappointed, he stood in the batters box today and watched the ball go by...strike one. Strike three and I will go back to hating him and once again knowing that he is NOT the best GM in the NHL. Today, Brian Burke, BRAINf****** BURKE FOR f***'S SAKE slapped Holland around like a *****...

This is the dumbest thing I've wasted 10 seconds of my life on reading. Teams are getting better??? The Wings have the longest active playoff appearance streak in the last 20 yrs and 4 cups to go with it. What do the teams that are getting better have to show??? Maybe a conference finals appearance or two??? Your comment was an epic fail.
