#2236622 Vintage Red Wings Brawl

Doesn't ring a bell

#2233962 Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

Posted by Echolalia on 07 December 2011 - 04:47 PM

I thought this thread wasn't about Fistric, but rather Kronwall and Stuart. If you want to discuss the Fistric hit, haroldsnepsts was kind enough to point you to two other threads discussing the topic, including one you even made.

I heard Mark Fistric died, and this is the thread to check in on updates.

My condolences to his family and friends.

#2230737 Acquiring a top six forward

Posted by Echolalia on 28 November 2011 - 11:11 PM

I don't see the Wings landing Iginla, because Holland is the type of GM to look at the future just as much as the present. He won't pay a whole lot for Iggy knowing he's well into the second half of his career and likely won't provide much for the Wings in the coming seasons. Other teams will easily outbid us wanting to win today, including some that Iginla will want to play for, expecting they have a chance at a Cup.
Parise is a guy I can see Holland going all out for. We have the capspace, we have the prospects, we have the picks, and this guy can be a cornerstone for years to come. I don't know that we have a top three forward in our talent pool in Grand Rapids or elsewhere. Parise may be able to buy Holland a couple extra years once Dats and Z get into the end of their careers, which will be all the more reason to pull the trigger on this one.

Seriously? That's a scrum in front of the net. They happen every night.

#2230306 Patrick Eaves injury

Posted by Echolalia on 26 November 2011 - 10:39 PM

I can't imagine how bad it would hurt to have an 80mph frozen puck drill into my ear. When a snowball hits my ear at 15mph I'm crying like a little girl.

#2219064 A Goalie is Needed

Posted by Echolalia on 27 October 2011 - 11:38 PM

You'd think that when your number 1 goalie is unbeaten in the season it would imply that there shouldn't be goalie issues on the forums.

You'd think.

#2218589 Anyone else have a feeling that we'd lose tonight?

Posted by Echolalia on 25 October 2011 - 10:37 PM

I had the feeling we'd lose the first game against Columbus.

#2216201 Could these be the Winter Classic Jerseys?

I really like the Rangers' jersey, but apparently I'm the only one.

#2215653 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by Echolalia on 15 October 2011 - 11:49 PM

Actually I've been pretty impressed with Eriksson so far. He really looks like he's trying to play more punishing in our zone and be a more substantial player, and while I still think he has some stuff he needs to continue to work on, it looks like he's on the right path towards making our investment in him worth it.

Put him in Grand Rapids for this year where he can get top-6 minutes and continue to work on his consistency and work ethic. If he continues on the pace he's at, there will certainly be room for him on the Red Wing roster next year, and not as a grinder.

#2202951 You can't let this happen.

The Blackhawk Indian has balls drooping down the side of his hair. That alone should put the Winged Wheel ahead.

Also, now you'll never not see them.

I see them winning the Cup this year, although I've seen them winning the Cup the past two years also. They're starting to break away from this playoff choker mentality, all the while steadily reinforcing their nucleus. Its only a matter of time before they hit the target.

#2199465 Prayers for Shawn Burr

Posted by Echolalia on 19 July 2011 - 01:17 PM

This guy was close to my coach back in high school. He showed up to our practice a couple times and I was fortunate that the winger on my line never showed up, so coach would put Shawn Burr on my line to practice 3-on-2's, dump and chase, etc. He is such a cool, genuine, down to earth dude.

#2196965 WMU head coach finalist for Wings' assistant coaching spot

Posted by Echolalia on 06 July 2011 - 06:54 PM

Frozen Four NCAA, CCHA Championship game, Hockey coach of the year by all three major college hockey publications. That is quite the accumulation for a single year of coaching. I would love to see him in the NHL working for the Wings. He certainly did my Broncos well, after years of mediocrity.
