#2647021 Jakub Kindl waived

Won't get claimed and people will still try to include him in a package for Malkin

#2644962 12/29 GDT : Detroit Red Wings at Winnipeg Jets, 8:00 EST

Losing is one thing, but man this team is so damn boring to watch on top of it. Besides Larkin and occasionally Tatar and Nyquist, there's very little to get excited about anymore. Z and Pav are shells of their former selves now. 


The Wings aren't retooling on the fly like Holland claims. They are just treading along in mediocrity seven years in a row. 




I've rarely missed a wings game in 10 years, and I've had little to no interest in the past 15 games or so. I just don't get excited for games this year and even when I watch I find myself not wanting to pay attention. Larkin is the only player who seems to play hard and does anything remotely exciting.


I'm over Blashill as well. How long are we going to keep Dats with Helm and Richards??? An infant could realize we need to mix up the lines but that seems to fly over his head.

Yeah the Joe is the only arena I've been to where they actually allowed me to go right up to the glass. Was 14 at the time and will never forget how blown away I was when Legwand was right in front of me for the Preds  :lol: . I was surprised how big the NHL players were. 


Honestly, I can't say enough good things about that arena. I've been to 4 now and nothing is even remotely the same. All seats are top notch thanks to the 1 large bowl. The rafters alone are legendary.


Also, if you've been to Baltimore, I'd say you have nothing to worry about in Detroit haha

I also had my first game at the Joe, travelling from Sudbury (few hours north of Toronto)about 8 years ago. 


Its for sure a different atmosphere compared to say, Toronto, but I can comfortably say you have nothing to worry about when it comes to danger. Plan where your going before hand and make sure to go early. Id even try to be there for 5 oclock just to make sure you dont miss ANYTHING. If thats too early just go eat at a restaurant close to the arena or something. Soak up the experience, I found Detroit a very unique city. (Maybe because it was the first time and only time I had  seen an American city) The Joe is a beautiful arena on the outside (those steps :scared: ) and the actual ice area is beautiful as well. 


I don't remember where we parked but from what I remember it wasnt bad at all. We walked about 5 minutes to the arena.

I feel like Mrazek has slowed down as of late but I'm still more confident in getting a win when hes in net. He seems to do enough in order to win. Jimmy is almost the opposite, does just enough to lose....no matter how well he plays

Dats playing with Pulk and Helm. Another game of Datsyuk being forced into irrelevance

#2640407 12/1 GDT : Buffalo Sabres at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Why must we always give Datsyuk sub-par linemates


Atleast give him 1 of abby,nyquist,larkin,tatar. You know, top 6 forwards.

#2640081 Artemi Panarin

Posted by WingsallTheway on 29 November 2015 - 03:01 PM

Wings should snag this kid up when Chicago can't pay him, the second coming of patty Kane for sure.
Btw Kane has 28 points in 18 games. Pretty good compared to last year when we had like 3 ppg players.


must...increase....NET SIZE

#2639527 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 November 2015 - 10:50 AM

Would you be willing to trade a new car for 5 rusted out pieces of crap that don't run?


A lot of crap is still crap.  Adding more crap to it doesn't make it valuable.


lol exactly. Don't understand how so many people seem to think you can trade a whole ton of crap for something good.




If Ferarro = 2

  Pulkinnen = 6

  Kindl       = 4

  3rd pick = 3


And Toews = 15


Well that's just fair for everyone!


Holland isn't completely stupid. If someone would have offered him a pick for Ferarro he wouldve taken it. He probably got claimed solely on the fact that he was a Red Wings 2nd round pick

#2638923 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 22 November 2015 - 08:23 PM

You have a reading and comprehension issue. Probably too fixated on searching for trolls. I was pointing out that Holland shouldnt be giving away our prospects for free. Trade them for ANYTHING. A 32nd overall pick is close to a 1st round draft choice. We just gave up an NHL calibur player for no reason. That's bad management. We could have placed 2 other players on waivers that wouldnt have been claimed (Andersson and Miller), and we could have received future considerations in a trade for Ferraro. Instead, Holland did NOTHING and let him go to Boston for free. Stupid.


Just because he was drafted high doesn't make him an NHL caliber player. If his last name wasn't Ferarro and he was still eligible, he'd be in the minors for a long time. 


Noone wouldve traded for Ferarro, but what does Boston have to lose by taking him for free when they need to replace Chris Kelly


Players get lost on waivers all the time, its a numbers game. Some players fit where others don't. See your boy, Miller. TB was horrible when we picked him up.

#2638907 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 22 November 2015 - 07:12 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.


I can get on board with Andersson on waivers but Jurco? Come on, that would be such a horrible management move, we could at least get a decent return for him in a trade.


ESPECIALLY Ferarro over Jurco?  :scared:


4th liners are a dime a dozen, we have 8 guys in the AHL who can come and replace him. 


note: I am not a Jurco supporter

Ferraro claimed by Boston, per Bob McKenzie twitter.


Just saw this, quite surprised to be honest.


Didn't have much of a future here so I'm not torn. Boston plays us at home Wednesday, talk about awkward for a rookie haha

Pulkinnen is really getting exposed with top line minutes..

Larkin is everything you'd want out of Datsyuk's linemate. Really wish Blash would see this

Make sure Bill doesn't see this
