#2638949 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 22 November 2015 - 11:24 PM

He improved quite a bit I thought this year... Much more energy and faster. He was a solid 4th line, definitely should have been Andersson or Jurco instead of him.

We could probably get a 2nd round pick for Jurco, at worst a 3rd.

And Andersson may be slower, but he's bigger, stronger, smarter and better defensively than Ferraro.
I wish he would've made it to grand rapids but he'll end up back in the AHL at some point anyway.

Over Jurco.


Who would you compare Ferarro to in order to equate his value?

Bobby Farnham.

Also waived.
Also picked up.
Is a healthy scratch blocking a better prospect who needs to be on the team.

For all the people just shaking this off, you need to have your heads examined. 2nd rnd draft pick, 32nd overall in 2009. Ken Holland's inability to act let our division rival pick him up for free. We spend a high draft pick, we train a high draft pick, then we lose him for free to a division rival. The Red Wings put the wrong player on waivers and failed to make a trade so they wouldnt have to. Stupid gm.


Bolded the important part.

#2638616 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 November 2015 - 02:24 PM

Larkin is NOT the face of the franchise, get a grip. Half of hockey fans I talk to don't even know who he is yet

So? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

Miller got promoted!!! Ha ha ha ha. Gee, I wonder why we cant score and keep losing. Miller's consecutive game streak in tact. Wings playoff streak bye bye. Just put Jurco in for Miller and we are solid. What is so hard about that?

Why are you so insistent on replacing Miller with Jurco of all people? If we want a player who can't score on the ice, I think the guy who's at least made a career out of the defensive side of the game is the better option.

#2634745 Good place to buy Tickets?

Check the STH ticket exchange here.  Sometimes they're overpriced, but sometimes you can find someone just trying to unload them.

#2633860 What is wrong with Anaheim?

Posted by Duck Guy on 28 October 2015 - 10:09 PM

So the injuries shall losses excuse.



I wrote you a poem anyway.

You're welcome.

Me too, and you're right, we always did. But the "switch" wasn't as powerful as last night during the second half of the second period. in past years I genuinely think the Wings just weren't able to play much better, due to system and some holes in the lineup. We weren't that strong but also not that young the past seasons, so I think a lot of our loss has something to do with the age and experience of some of our players.

#2630938 All Purpose "Ovechkin is Awesome" Thread

Posted by kickazz on 15 October 2015 - 10:46 AM

I love Ovie because he's really good, and he doesn't care about playing hockey the Canadian way.  Which drives people NUTS.  Take the hatred that most people felt for Subban (prior to his big money donation) and multiply that by 100 and you'll only just approach the amount of shade cast on Alex Ovechkin from the Canadian faithful.  Love it. 

What's the canadian way? Crosby's way? Or Toews? Or Stamkos? or Gretzky? Howe? Orr? Lindros?


So many different styles IDK which one you're referring to!

#2606503 Phil Kessel blockbuster

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 07 May 2015 - 09:08 AM

The kessel thing I imagine is to give staal some support.
And kadri, will be a good 3rd line center for them, I guess.

As for the semin/kessel Toronto contract comment....
Semins only got 3 yrs left on his contract, compared to kessels 19, which will put him around 380lbs

#2606497 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by kipwinger on 07 May 2015 - 08:56 AM


Really haha I think its one of the best cellys out there. Its emotion and character. Two things our team has been lacking for years


Only other guy who gives a hoot when he scores is Tatar


Yeah, I don't know what it is about the knee slide.  I really don't.  And it's not even like I have a problem with cellys either.  I love how pumped Tatar gets.  And if I think about it rationally, I lighten up about the knee slide after a minute too.  But when I see it happen in real time, my gut reaction is always a combination of irritation and loathing.
