#2525358 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 June 2014 - 06:42 PM

Not pumped about this at all.


He was extremely ineffective for long stretches of the season and now hes just a year older, with a bad back.


This off -season is looking more and more like its going to be the same old stuff. Excited to see which fringe NHLer 6th pairing defenceman we will be signing next

#2524529 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

Posted by WingsallTheway on 19 June 2014 - 07:43 AM

As bad as hes  become, I'd still take him over cleary. 


But what do I know, im not Ken Holland

#2524273 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

It was probably just to hell him not to piss off the wings or he would get his ass beat just like his daddy and the whole team did.


By who ? 

#2522949 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by WingsallTheway on 05 June 2014 - 08:12 PM

Boyle is a shell of his former self. He was a great defenceman a few years ago but has found himself on the wrong side of 35; and just like most defenceman at this age, is not able to keep up with the new NHL. 


Sharks fans generally agree that his time has come as well, they are not upset at him leaving. If he isn't good enough for their team, he shouldnt be for ours either based on the amount of kids we need to start having playing time

#2519756 Gaborik?

Vanek ? The plays they could setup would be incredible.


Great shot - Check

Great passing - Check

High Hockey IQ and vision - Check

Net Front Presence - Check

Great shot deflector - Check

PPG player on a bad team (Buffalo) - Check

PP Specialist - Check






The main factor is style of play... Sid is a FREAK along the boards which would be amazing with dats, plus he can set up/finish while not being a liability on defence. Hes also a power forward
Kane is basically a dats 0.5 with less puck control/more agility so barring one of them wanting the puck more, I think they would be awesome together
Vanek is soft, which does not bode well with datsyuk. He plays well with Z b/c he plays a PWF style

This would probably be a good enough deal... and I wouldnt do it

#2518252 Ken Holland Quotes (Apr 29th

Posted by WingsallTheway on 29 April 2014 - 07:08 PM

Ken Holland quote August 31st 2014:


Ultimately, we kicked some tires but the price was too steep to bring in a free agent RH defenceman. We feel the return of a more experienced Quincey and Kindl solidifies our backend. The return of a healthy pav and Z gives us all we need and franzen tells me he has been resurged.


I traded tatar and 2 conditional 1st round picks for the rights to Chris Chelios, but ultimately I did not kick the tires hard enough and we won't be adding his veteran leadership this season.

#2517260 Was Legwand worth it?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 April 2014 - 05:35 PM

No, we lost one of our best prospects who fills a whole that this team desperately needs in a scoring right handed center.


We made the playoffs which is great, but I think we could have done it without Legwand, or even with jarncrok in that position. Legwand was irrelevant IMO. 


The pick is now a second rounder, which can easily become a good player


Basically, we traded a 2nd pick (pretty high one too) and a promising prospect for 5 extra games of hockey. 

#2514570 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

The addition of bertuzzi is the worst coaching decision ive seen in awhile

#2514432 Least Favorite Wings Players

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 April 2014 - 05:27 PM

Glendening.  I'm sure he's a great kid, but he produces zero offense.  I don't understand the love affair Babs has with him, for a team that is offense starved the last few years, why bring on a guy that produces nothing?  He's in the top 5 of least producing Wing forwards we've EVER had, I think top 3 actually.  So what if he brings his lunch pail to work every day... he just doesn't produce anything while at work.  Most companies fire you for that.


Hes on this team because every line has a role. Glendenning fits the shutdown center role EXTREMELY well


Dats is now able to play against other team's 2,3,4 line because glendenning is somehow capable of shutting down other teams top centers. 


Not every player needs to provide offence, especially a 4th liner



As per the thread:


I despise Quincey Kindl Bertuzzi and right now Franzen


Posted by WingsallTheway on 16 April 2014 - 09:13 AM

At this time , EVERYONE was willing to trade dats for Stall



crazy! :scared:

#2508525 Maple Leafs Name Shanahan New Club President

Posted by WingsallTheway on 10 April 2014 - 08:04 PM

And  he thought he had a difficult job before...

#2505732 Riley Sheahan - Underappreciated and Overshadowed?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 04 April 2014 - 11:10 AM

Sheahan to me has come out of nowhere and exceeded all of my expecations. His play this season has him becoming one of my favorite players. 


His vision as a playmaker is AWESOME and he always seems to make the right hockey play.
