#2652023 2/10 GDT : Ottawa Senators at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Posted by chaps80 on 10 February 2016 - 10:01 PM


Marchenko played tonight.


I agree Kindl doesn't have a future here but he's looked good in his most recent stint. With Green and Kronwall out hes been pretty good in an offensive position, where I think he needs to play


Looks like Dekeyser might be out for a bit, which is horrible. Thats our top 3D with Kron and Green and arguably our best in Deke. Will be interesting to see Jensen get a shot though


Yeah, i just checked the rosters again, didn't see Marchenko in there at first glance. Ya, I guess Kindl's experience comes in good right now with the injuries, but it would be nice to see other guys get a shot. Will Kindl have to clear waivers again now if he's sent down again? If DD is out, that's indeed very bad news. Green is day to day though..hopefully he's not out too long. Gotta keep playing though regardless, so it'd be nice to see one of the young guys step up.

The problem is with your opinion. Not Stamkos. He is improving. But since all you are looking at is goals, you dont see it.


indeed, but we need offense.  If we were to give up the mega deal to get him, it wouldn't be for the Selke Stamkos, we have Selke Z and Selke Dats and Checker Glendening...we need Hart Stamkos.  That is why if he is chosing to make his all around game better and focus less on O, and good for him, but we shouldn't give up the proposed ante for him....I like him, but only if he comes with 40+ goals, 100 points and a Hart Trophy attached, especially at $10M+...and espicailly at the price of 3 YOUNG NHL roster players, a 1st rnd pick and our top prospect...

Nedomlel isn't even good enough to crack the Griffins lineup with injuries. He's a mediocre ECHL defenseman. But yeah, Holland should have traded him for Drouin...

I can't believe I'm about to defend Lucic...ewww. Lucic is a lot of bad things, cheap, whiny, entitled. But he's not a spot picker. He's fought some really tough dudes. He's not afraid to scrap with anyone. Its his nut shots, charges, running over goalies, that makes him deplorable. As well as his generally bitchy attitude about losing.

The difference is Varlamov was a 23yr old RFA and Schneider was a 26yr old on a good contract.


Howard is 31 and has a big contract.  


Those guys had their best years ahead of them.  We've probably seen the best Howard has to offer.


He's just not the same value as those guys.  Especially in a cap system.

I could see a late 1st or a couple 2nd rounders for Howard at most.


Plus we'd probably have to either take salary back or retain some.


It could be an expiring UFAs salary, but there's no way we're dumping that 5mil with nothing coming back.

Regardless it's an offseason deal if it happens at all.

#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.

#2638909 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by marcaractac on 22 November 2015 - 07:21 PM

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?

#2637323 11/16 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Senators 3 (OT)

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.

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

Being in Canada though its nice that we play ottawa mtl and toronto more, now

Fire blashill if we lose.


Okay I'm kidding don't write me a damn poem. 

We thought to a vict'ry we'd cruise

And that Blash should be fired should we lose.

But the folks that do know'im

Said "Don't write a poem."
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.
