#2544113 future captains?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 23 October 2014 - 10:41 PM

I've been waiting a long time for someone to make this thread.

Hands down I believe DeKeyser will be the captain of this team after Z retires. Michigan boy, hell of a player, and he has a great work ethic. Plus he was captain at WMU, I believe, so he's been in the leader role before.

C- Dekeyser
A- Nyquist
A- Smith/Abby

I could see Mantha getting an A if he pans out. He composes himself very well for someone so young. Same with Oullet and Sproul.

Very excited for the next generation of Wings!

Nastasiuk shows a lot of promise as a Draper-type leader as well, imo.


#2543265 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Tats and Jurco need to find their offensive games so we can get some secondary scoring.

And we're back to being last years team.

What, by getting bent over by the refs? This game should've been 2-0 Wings, maybe 2-1.  ******* joke. 




#2542002 10/17 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 1

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 17 October 2014 - 09:20 PM

What do people think about Z going forward? I mean should we put him on Dats' wing again. It seems to me that the setup ability needs to be used to it's fullest and have him at center like tonight. But that does create the problem of who plays wing with Dats because I like that line of Mule-Z-Nyquist.

Tough call because that Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco line is really good, but after watching the preseason I kind of want to see Tats a Pav on a line together again.  Z's line should stay just the way it is.

Its official...Kindl is so bad Babs has resorted to double shifting Smith. May god have mercy on our souls.

Also, HOCKEY'S BACK!!!


#2538819 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 07 October 2014 - 02:38 PM

The roster moves have pissed people off so much that they're experiencing hallucinations involving talking dogs. Way to go, Kenny.


Its exactly what he wanted.

Yes...yes...the plan is coming together quite nicely.

I actually let myself believe Ouellet would beat out Kindl. The rest was expected, but no XO is very disappointing.


#2538380 10/4 Final Preseason GDT: Detroit Red Wings vs Boston Bruins

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 04 October 2014 - 07:01 PM

So uhhh...was there a contest I missed that allowed a fan to dress up as Nyquist and play in a preseason game for the Wings?




#2530748 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 09 July 2014 - 09:42 AM

Caps are at the cap ceiling, have too many d men (Green being the odd man out), and he's on an expiring contract. He is a good player and a great fit, but the Wings should be the ones dictating the cost to get him here. A young, top six forward like Tats, Goose, or Jurco is absolute lunacy. Those names should not even be mentioned in negations. Our biggest problem is that it is common knowledge that we are in desperate need of a puck moving RH d man, and I think this is why we keep hearing that the Caps would want those players coming back.

I think that Andersson, Frk, and a 3rd that turns into a 2nd if he re-signs should suffice for a player that: 1 Isn't likely to re-sign with the Caps if he was to stay the whole season, and 2 Could potentially just be a rental for the Wings.

Apparently the people running the Wings twitter page are just as bored waiting for the draft/free agency as we are...

Glitch goals.


#2490934 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 05 March 2014 - 04:49 PM

True that Ferraro and a third would have been better, but that last bit about haunting us for years is a little bombastic, isn't it? I don't spend any time watching prospects in the minors, so I'm not well-informed on jarnkrok's talent...but is he really that good? It just seems like lots of people are ready to jump off the ledge right now - I know it's an accumulation of Holland's inactivity, but still. It's one trade.

True.

 

But if he does stay and he does become the player he was projected to be, then I'd still say this will be a trade we look back on and wonder wtf Holland was thinking.

 

When I write it out like that, I guess those are some big "if"s, so I suppose you're right.

 

Hey, quit bullying me already, I'm overreacting to a trade I don't like over here!
