In Topic: 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

20 July 2014 - 04:31 PM

I lived north of Baltimore when the Orioles built Camden Yards and it revitalized the Inner Harbor and made it a place to be....hopefully this arena is able to do the same thing for the city of Detroit.


In Topic: TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

13 July 2014 - 11:48 AM

Going a little far here.  I'm as irritated as the next guy, and probably more than most.  But rather than "tank it" how about we just give open spots to deserving kids and see what they can do?  Seemed to work out well last year.  I don't know about anybody else but I'd love to add a 6'4 200+ lb Mantha, and a 6'4 200+ lb Sproul to our lineup.  As long as he doesn't trade anything valuable away and/or sign some washed up old guy (Alfie) we could very well see

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Mantha

Franzen-Weiss-Nyquist

Jurco-Sheahan-Tatar

Abby-Helm-Miller

 

Kronwall-Ericsson

Smith-Dekeyser

Quincey-Sproul

 

Probably won't compete for a Cup, maybe won't make the playoffs even.  But maybe, just maybe, we get a little bigger, a little faster, a little bit more hungry, and a little harder to play against. 

 

Babcock would never put a rookie on the top line with Z and D so your lineups are already unrealistic.

 

Face it, while I don't want them to tank a season, this roster is going exactly nowhere.  Holland is literally wasting the end segment of Z and D's careers with marginal teams with little imaginaion, youth, or energy.


We will NEVER tank EVER! This team will ALWAYS make the playoffs...cause Red Wings always find a way (with Cleary and Kindl and all).

 

And find a way to get eliminated in the 1st round again.  In the west that's not acceptable but somewhat expected. IN the East that is absolutely dreadful and depressing.

We are transitioning/rebuilding right now.

 

Yeah....no.

 

Signing guys like Alfie/Sammy/Cleary/Bert going into last season was a clear sign that they weren't in rebuilding mode yet.  Trading for Legwand isn't how you rebuild either.  Part of rebuilding is using your draft picks, not trading for 2 month rentals.

 

Holland needs to go.

"We like our team"

 

If this is in any way acceptable from this team's GM after the last 3 (really 4) years I don't know what to tell you.  Holland clearly needs to go, the team needs to be rebuilt and the franchise needs to transition.


In Topic: Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

01 May 2014 - 03:48 PM

 

Franzen isn't getting bought out regardless. When are people going to realize that buying out Tootoo has nothing to do with Mule?

 

Also, Franzen is not this teams problem! He isn't out there costing the Wings games.

 

Like hell....Franzen's lazy as all hell pass in Game 5 directly cost them that game.
