#2683598 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by WingsallTheway on 21 July 2016 - 05:17 PM

I refuse to believe Holland is that stupid. However, if this were to happen, I would officially side with the F*** Ken Holland crowd...

 

Why do you refuse to believe Holland would trade a prospect for a dwindling player to come play in Detroit and retire?




#2683213 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 July 2016 - 04:41 PM

Hate to break it to you, but we have already seen his best years. Hockey players tend to hit their peak between ages 23-25. Glendy is already past that age and he is not going to get better; he will only get worse. This contract will become another albatross around the organization's neck as they try to "rebuild on the fly".

 

That is completely false

 

Peak age is 26-30 both physically and mentally. Its more of a case-by-case basis but there is no way players are best at 23. If I have a good player at that age i get really excited because there is ample room for growth

 

Especially in the case of a defensive player, the mental game is half the battle. You have to try things and gain experience to shut guys down, so Glendenning will get better




#2682038 Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

Posted by WingsallTheway on 03 July 2016 - 08:42 AM

First post doesn't include Howe

 

Disregarded




#2681567 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by WingsallTheway on 01 July 2016 - 02:51 PM

WOW. This guy can be a good player if he finds his motor. Someone has to wake him up and make him a 30-goal guy again. One year deal, i like it.

 

Helm is the only guy who can do it !!!

Holland kicking tires on moving Pav's contract




#2674988 Calder finalists

Posted by WingsallTheway on 03 May 2016 - 02:54 PM

People are actually upset that Mcdavid was a finalist instead of Larkin?

 

Mcdavid has just as many points in half the amount of games....

 

edit: Mcdavid had more points in half the amount of games




#2673765 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 April 2016 - 07:01 AM

hopefully out of our lineup 

 

If you don't like Helm I dont know what to say.

 

Sure, he shouldnt be in the top 6 but anywhere in the bottom 6 and hes one of the best in the league. Its not his fault that our coaches think he should be playing on scoring lines




#2673606 Ownership shows Support for Kenny Holland

Posted by WingsallTheway on 25 April 2016 - 06:03 PM

With some of his comments today, I don't know how he still has support from anyone, let alone ownership

 

The fact that the media is even questioning Holland is the start of the pressure he's going to start feeling to be successful

 

I'd say this is a good thing. A part of me was hoping theyd miss the playoffs so this would happen, but winning 1 game seems to have done it as well.

 

The whole team seems to understand that we were the worst team in the playoffs. Not really something to brag about; to be the worst of the best

Season defining game tonight. Hoping the boys play as well as they did in game 3.




#2669927 Andersson leaving the NHL after the Playoffs

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 April 2016 - 01:31 AM

This just in, 

 

Andersson has cleared waivers in the SEL so Holland has decided to sign him to a 5 year contract. NMC.




#2667205 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by WingsallTheway on 12 April 2016 - 06:48 AM

Sorry if someone else posted, but in this article http://www.tsn.ca/da...r-cent-1.470019 he says he has not 100% decided yet.

 

Really messing with people's emotions. If you arent completely decided don't say anything at all




#2666592 Who will finish as the leading scorer for the Red Wings 2015/2016?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 09 April 2016 - 04:50 PM

Not quite the 86 Oilers.

 

I remember back in the day when Lidstrom had something like 88 points and we played Nashville? in the playoffs. Theyre leading scorer had something around 45 points and I thought it was the funniest thing of all time.

 

Well here we are...
