#2617714 Saad traded to Columbus

They aren't better than the Rangers or Tampa lol

You say they don't have good center depth, then say they're not as good as the rangers, who don't have a real #1 center.

#2604771 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 April 2015 - 10:55 PM

Free agency has been a completely different game since the cap as well, the contracts are longer so there's less options during the off season, and more competition for players. We don't have young superstars to lure in free agents, there's lots of other exciting teams to choose from.

I don't know that I can say with certainty that Holland is the best GM, but I think he's done very well considering the circumstances.


Some of those "circumstances" were his fault.  Keeping Cleary, Sammy and Bertuzzi around for too long.  Trading a first rounder for Quincey. Spending too many trade deadlines on the phone ordering pizza instead of doing his job.  


His defenders make it sound like he's a victim of bad luck or something.  He's made his own troubles the last few years.  Yeah, there were some bad breaks in there but he's not absolved of guilt.

Unlike the "optimistic" posters here, I don't think this team has a good future.


Our top three players are old and are already looking significantly worse than before.


Our two best young players can't score in the playoffs.  They probably couldn't score with an 18 year old hooker who's had half a bottle of Wild Turkey.    


Our players outside of the ones I just named are nothing more than 4th line jobbers, muckers and cheerleaders who play hard but aren't going to win big games for us.  


I don't know much about Mantha or Pulkinnen, but I hope these guys are better than the other GR players everyone here has been raving about for years.

Drink until Detroit scores


You sure that's safe?


IF they lose tonight, we will be drinking until October! :lol:

Talent is our biggest problem in this game.  Not effort.  


Too many untalented jobbers.  I mean we're playing our 4th line more minutes than the 1st line.  Kind of hard to score goals when you do that.  


We all like Glendenning, but come on.  He can't be your number one center if you're going to win games 6 and 7 and score timely goals.  

We have 16 scoring chances, and cant convert Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


Because we don't have lots of talent.  Chances like that would be buried by more talented players.

Ugh. Good job refs. I can't see how there was no call when Quincey got held and pulled down and then held down on the ground. Seriously! f*** the refs


Maybe we can blame them for Detroit not putting the puck in the net.  Better yet, maybe they will do it for us.

This better not be one of those games where Ben Bishop gets shutout

#2602074 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

One more and we are back in this.

I'm betting it's not normal to be terrified every time our top pairing defenseman are on the ice. I feel more confident with Smith and Zidlicky right now.

#2599750 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by VM1138 on 23 April 2015 - 09:10 PM

The series is tied.
Its nowhere near over boys and girls. Let's all have some faith, if it doesn't work, then we all have plenty of time to bitxh and moan.

I admire your optimism, but this game was the Wings at their best. They haven't played a better game. And they lost. Now Tampa, just an hour ago a shaken team, has all the confidence and momentum going home, where they have the best record. And they are no longer doubting themselves. This was the high water mark of the Wings season.

That wasn't a penalty.  Babcock needs to stop bitching, and Dekeyser needs to not go down so easily.

How many times do you have to dump the puck into the offensive zone, and then lose the puck battle on the boards, before you try something different?


This is the most one dimensional team in the league.  We are not Winnipeg, Columbus, or St. Louis.  Chip and chase hockey isn't going to work with this roster.  As long as Babcock continues to do the same thing, with the same results, we'll never win a god damn thing. 

#2593879 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by roboturner on 16 April 2015 - 12:45 PM


For the third time, I never said Yzerman created this policy. What I said was if this policy was NOT created by the owner or team president, I'm sure with his standing in the organization, Yzerman would have veto power.


Also, if my argument was that Yzerman created it (which is wasn't), telling me that Tony from the Lightning told you otherwise is NOT proof LOL!

What makes you think a general manager would have veto power over a teams ticket sales?

Can't believe there's people here actually bashing Yzerman.  So he didn't want to wait for Kenny to leave. Instead, he goes to Tampa, builds a good team and gets a 1st round pick for Kyle Quincey.  You gotta love it.  

#2593218 Why so negative?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 April 2015 - 02:43 PM

Not one media person is picking the Wings.

Screw all you negative nancy's and your fancy fantasies. Wings All The Way Brother. Now Can You Dig That Sucker.
In the words of Rick Flair...


How dare you?  You spelled Nature Boy's first name wrong.

I just don't see the point in taking time out of your day to predict negative outcomes against your team, on your teams fan website.


It's like wearing a Tampa Bay jersey this Thursday because probability suggests they are more likely to win?


To be clear, this is a hockey discussion website.  Obviously most of us here are Wings fans and want the Wings to win, but some of that discussion will involve areas where we think the team is lacking. 


All discussion here is welcome as long as it is within forum rules, including viewpoints that are critical of the team or deemed negative by other members here.
