#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.

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...

Did Howard just give Blashiill the business? If so, my new favorite player

You just described a Troll.

 

Yeah and they're hilarious when you arent the one feeding them




#2664364 2016 Playoffs % chances (part II)

Posted by WingsallTheway on 04 April 2016 - 07:10 AM

don't look now, but add another team to our chances of passing up....The Rangers are only 4 points ahead of us, on a 2 game losing streak and are only playing .500 the last 10.  They currently sit 4 points ahead of us, could possibly be a do or die for them when we play them the last day of our season...

 

I think our chances to make the playoffs are pretty good (unless we s*** the bed all 3 games) considering we could pass Philly (they still have another game against Pit) if we beat them Wed...we could pass any of Philly, Rags, Isles, Bruins...also an outside chance we could catch Tampa, they are also 4 points ahead of us.

 

What a mess, yet the competition is going to be fierce this last week of play...lets hope The Wings all show up!

 

The game against Boston is our biggest one. Its very intereresting because you couldn't ask for 3 better teams to play at the end of the season. All 3 teams are within reach of us in the playoffs and its sort of like a mini playoff. I love it




#2662587 3/28 GDT : BUFFALO SABRES AT DETROIT RED WINGS, 7:30 PM ET

Posted by WingsallTheway on 28 March 2016 - 04:44 PM

Agreed and kronwall-green should be a pairing

 

Kronwall is too slow right now to be covering for Green.

 

Honestly though, with our D, I'm not really sure there are any pairings that make sense.




#2660781 Coreau called up

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 March 2016 - 08:44 PM

Coreau killed it pencilling in the faceoff stats tonight




#2660451 Looking ahead at expansion draft

Posted by WingsallTheway on 16 March 2016 - 01:36 PM

Supposedly, the tsn tweeters are suggesting that there will also be a rule that players on first 2 years of their ELC will automatically be protected so that means we would not have to use a protection on Larkin.

 

That is actually a fantastic rule and I'll have to give the NHL credit on that one. 

 

I'm sure the NHLPA stuck theyre noses in on that one




#2660445 The Holiday tradition: 2016 Draft thoughts.....

Posted by WingsallTheway on 16 March 2016 - 01:08 PM

Wow so that means Edmonton Edmonton will soon have a line of Laine/Puljujarvi McJesus Hall - f*** that such an insane line wow. No wonder oilers fans are excited I would be too.All Chiarelli has to do is trade another young guy for a stud d men...Edmonton will be scary good soon

A 1 percent chance at Matthews? I'd take that over the playoffs for sure because it would also mean a higher chance on one of the other top picks

 

Yeah I'm a big fan of the new lottery system. Doesn't play into the hands of the bottom feeders and it gives mediocre teams around the 10-15th spot a chance to continue succeeding and land an above average pick instead of floating around in mediocricy. 

 

This also works out for the Oilers unfortunately because they will be an average team for the next 2-4 years. This gives them even more chances at top picks when that previously wouldn't have been the case. Luckiest team in sports.
