#2540708 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 October 2014 - 08:05 PM

Yeah im reluctant to give up any of our top forward prospects, especially for a D. Its looking like in the future we'll have one of those stable D's that has above average guys top to bottom, which im okay with.


Its going to be more difficult to replace dats and Z in the coming years then it is Kronwall and...... Quincey?



To me, tatar is untouchable but I may be biased. Ive been following him since draft day so I have a definite soft spot for him since he was drafted the same year i was eligble 


As previously mentioned, Jurco has untapped potential albeit probably 50 points but is as close to another dats as we'll ever have when it comes to stick handling.


I had initially thought nyquist was gonna be a big bust this season, but hes looked phenomenal.... could easily be our next Z IMO.


I'd hate to lose any of these guys for anyone not named Crosby or Mcdavid. Maybe Eichel.

#2540677 NY Islanders Acquire Leddy and Boychuk

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 October 2014 - 04:44 PM

 The good thing is, the Isles have a very cheap owner so if the Wings are serious about getting a top defender Boychuk would be a nice nice addition.  Throw 7 x 6 at him and I highly doubt Wang matches :) it's time for this team to flex their financial muscle again.


Thats a rediculous contract for boychuck. 


Wang doesn't match because he has common sense

#2540671 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

I'd like to see Meyers swapped for Quincey and Kindl.


Id like to see Cleary and Weiss shipped for Crosby and Malkin

#2540297 Coach's video challenge

Posted by WingsallTheway on 12 October 2014 - 10:11 AM

Sorry can't edit my post for some reason but I would also say that they could only use the challenge on goals the whole reviewin the play for a penalty just seems unnessary to me


To me, reviewing penalties can drastically change the outcome of a game. See; Oct 11,2014. 


I also remember another game, not even sure if it was the wings; (pretty sure it was) but crosby took a high stick from one of his own teammates and was awarded a 4 minute powerplay for high sticking. It could also be used to review dives and see if there was actual contact with the stick between legs for trips and stuff. The game is played faster then any other sport, theres nothing wrong with slowing it down for a second to correct a mistake.

#2538471 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 05 October 2014 - 06:23 PM

Doesn't look like anyone will be claimed.. Good news for the Griffins and our top line once everyone gets injured

#2538443 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 05 October 2014 - 12:20 PM

Not too dissapointed about Ferraro/Porter but I'd like to see Callahan get a chance over Miller.. 


Not sure how great of a PKer he is but he seems to bring character to the lineup


edit: forgot about Cleary... the fact that theres a possibility we lose Callahan for nothing for him is a joke

#2538057 TSN Luke Schenn could be available

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 October 2014 - 07:16 PM

Ive seen him play quite a bit, hes overpaid and actually pretty bad...


At most hes a 6th MAYBE 5th defenceman. Although we could use a guy like him, it would have to be at a much lower cap hit.


I would probably trade Kindl for him though..

Guys a broken record... such stuborness

#2537331 9/23 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by WingsallTheway on 25 September 2014 - 08:29 PM

I don't think this game is being filmed at all to be honest so no cameras = no stream.


pretty sad considering my high school football games would even be on TV...

#2533538 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 August 2014 - 02:05 PM

Great. If PK is the building block for a 9M dollar contract, we can all prepare for our fourth consecutive lockout

#2533320 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by WingsallTheway on 29 July 2014 - 06:27 PM

I would pass on Setoguchi. Hate that guy, probably the biggest diver I've ever seen.


Penner I also don't see working out too well on the wings. Big, slow, lazy.... We have enough Franzens.


Not to shoot down your suggestions on these players lol, I would like to see some fresh blood on the team especially via tryout. 

#2533319 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by WingsallTheway on 29 July 2014 - 06:19 PM

I agree with most people on here


Sammy was the perfect whipping boy especially since he was clutch in the playoffs


He was a good role player when we had such a stacked team, and was one of the few players willing to shoot. 


Its too bad Holland decided to bring him back because now he'll always be placed into williams territory.



His playoff goal against the pens, for me is still one of my favorite goals. Something about that celly as he skated around the net pumping his fist after the wraparound just stuck in my head forever. 


Forgot about the Chicago goal, although i completely remember it now. Classic Huds / Fil refusing to shoot the puck lol

#2533082 2014 Prospects Tournament and Training Camp (Sept. 12-23)

Posted by WingsallTheway on 27 July 2014 - 03:54 PM

Karate Chop Ken Holland in the face and ask him what the f*** his problem is


Illitch has him working extra hours on the golf course so he can play in the PGA tour, bringing extra money to the franchise.











Which can be spent on Cleary

#2532409 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 July 2014 - 07:52 PM

If we can give Quincey 4.5, then we can give Dekeyser the same contract

Good news for Cleary's knees, and thus, the core of our team
