#2638936 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 22 November 2015 - 10:10 PM

If they put Larkin beteen Mantha and Jurco, those 3 will light it up.

Larkin + 2 players that can't yet make it in the NHL would "light it up." You've got one hell of a crystal ball ...or you've been lighting it up too.

I hate howard. Even if he was the best goalie in the league. Hate his style and demenour.

#2636787 11/13 GDT | Sharks @ Red Wings | 7:30 PM ET | FSD

I'm home from Toronto this weekend and am going to the game... really dissapointed that mrazek isn't playing I was really hoping he would. I think it shows blash has more faith in mrazek to get us a win on the 2nd half of back to backs.

Either way I am very lucky the magic man happens to be back tonight. I'm calling a magic goal. 4 to 2 wings!


I doubt Blashill has any issues with confidence in either of his goalies. They've swapped back and forth for almost every game this season.


They also have almost identical numbers.

I was starting to get annoyed with people saying that after the Calgary game. 

#2633825 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 October 2015 - 04:38 PM

This thread is very premature and dumb. You ever get a promotion at work? Usually it takes a bit of time to adjust to the new position. This isn't any different

I know... I know.. It is way too early to tell if the Jeff Blashill experience will be celebrated or despised.

You're selling Kronwall short. Lots of people do.  He consistently posts as good, or better, seasons than all the other 1A defenders.  Yet he never gets any love.  He plays in every situation.  Is very good on both sides of the puck.  Hell, he had more powerplay points than Duncan Keith AND Drew Doughty last season.  And he's an excellent penalty killer.  Yet for some reason people say he's not a top guy. 


I don't agree. 

#2631187 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Craig Custance @CraigCustance 10m10 minutes ago

Just spoke w/Dan Cleary who will report to Grand Rapids on Tuesday. Looks forward to mentoring young players: "I just needed some time."

#2631146 10/16 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Mrazek is getting the tougher assignments for sure.


Correct, because Howard always gets those bottom feeders with T like Tampa Bay, while Mrazek has to play cap era dynasties with C like Carolina.


I'm pretty optimistic this one will be better than the last one against the Hurricanes. Tats is due with a goal and we did look fantastic at home so far so I'm going with 4:1 Wings (Tats, Pulks, Abby, Jurco).

#2630649 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by krsmith17 on 14 October 2015 - 06:27 AM

Well the good news is, we have found a capable replacement for that bum Ken Holland... I mean, what does he know anyway? Guy clearly has no idea about player development... Now, Bill Merzeench and MileHighWingsGuy, they get it... Why "develop" a kid in the minors when you can throw him into the fire right away? Develop schmelop I say... The one player we didn't take our time with developing in recent memory is Jurco. He was a point per game player in the AHL, and he obviously didn't need more time down there, because he's tearing s*** up in the NHL now. Then we have guys like Nyquist and Tatar that toiled away in the AHL for years, and they were obviously ready when they were 19 or 20, guys were stars right off the draft table... Another thing, these idiot hockey analysts really need to stop with all the "Red Wings do it right". "Ken Holland's development philosophy of seasoning prospects is proven". F***ing Bulls***! Ken Holland doesn't know s***! Hand the reigns over to these guys...

I'm so sick of this STUPID argument!!!! If we had Lindros, Gretzky, Lemieux, and Yzerman all 19 years old, half of Red Wings fans, so drunk on Ken Holland's idiotic excuse for not knowing when players are ready = "over ripening", would say they want them getting first line minutes in Grand Rapids. mIt's the dumbest thing I've ever heard! I swear to God I think Drew Miller gives half the fan base free lower bowl tickets to keep everyone saying how every good young player should develop in Grand Rapids three more years!!


Man....calm down and please don't put words in my mouth. My post said NOTHING about "over ripening". I said that I would rather AA be playing first line minutes in GR, then 4th line minutes Detroit. You love the idea of putting every young kid on the main roster, go become an Oilers fan. Also, my last set of comments had NOTHING to do with Miller. Miller could go down with an injury and I would say the same thing. Just because everyone doesn't agree with your philosophy doesn't mean you need to have a tantrum.
