This is hockey, not fifty shades of grey .

 

If Kyle Quincey can score, so can Dabura.

#2492469 Patrick Eaves First Game as a Predator

It's good that he's getting a shot at keeping his career alive. Patty is a class act and a contributor. He deserves to play.


#2491494 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Echolalia on 05 March 2014 - 11:21 PM

I'm pissed about losing Jarnkrok, but I've had some time to cool down and think it through some more. The Wings absolutely need a center now that Datsyuk is going to miss three weeks, Zetterberg already shut down for the season, and Helm and Weiss now questionable going forward. Legwand was the best fit for our team that was moved, and Holland did what was necessary to land him. We can all speculate whether it was possible to acquire Legwand for less, but we ultimately will never know for sure. Maybe another team had a solid offer already on the table, or maybe Polie was playing hardball. Who knows. If Eaves, a 2nd/3rd, and Jarnkrok was a take-it-or-leave-it for Legwand, I think I would have pulled the trigger too, simply to give the Wings a fighting chance to make the playoffs.
As for Jarnkrok vs Legwand, we are losing a lot of potential, certainly. But we are getting a top 6 center man (who will be second only to Zetterberg for team scoring) with a proven record of being reliable both defensively and offensively. He's also able to help the team now (as opposed to three years from now), which is important. Jarnkrok, like all prospects, isn't a sure thing. There is no guarantee he even makes it to the NHL (especially with all the speculation that he returns to Sweden), and if he does make the NHL, there's no guarantee that he will be a top six centerman of Legwand's calibre.
It probably doesn't make it any easier for most of you to swallow, so instead I can just post what our lines could look like should we make the playoffs:
Zetterberg Datsyuk Franzen
Alfredson Legwand Nyqvist
Tatar Sheahan Jurco
Abdelkader Helm/Weiss Bertuzzi/Miller
Or any combination thereof.

Any way you want to write it up, that's an upset team.

Legwand will be our second highest scorer (second only to Zetterberg).


#2487753 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by Echolalia on 28 February 2014 - 09:41 AM

The refs were worried about Ottawa getting butt hurt if Franzen scored again

I know Bert scored and all, but he really looked sloppy out there.  Also it wasn't one of Lashoff's best efforts.  Smith and Quincey, however, I thought played excellently!

Sup guys, go Wings! ...Where'd all this confetti come from?

The Islanders just got that much more unbeatable to the Red Wings.

Helene St. James ‏@HeleneStJames 2h
Bobby Ryan off to Ottawa. #RedWings had little interest in Ryan, none after lackluster performance in this year's playoffs against them.


That's wrote as fact not opinion.

 

Its definitely not written as fact, but if you want to interpret it as fact there's probably little any of us can do to convince you otherwise.  It was also written in July, not after the first round of the playoffs ended, and the thread link that you posted demonstrated that many of us at LGW also took the tweet by HSJ to be rumor and not a very valid one at that.  Helene St. James was attempting to fill in the blanks and its sloppy journalism (although its tough to call anything tweeted as journalism).  I don't believe she (or anyone) has published any references or quotes from Holland or any Detroit Red Wings upper management which suggests they passed on Bobby Ryan because of laziness, lackluster performance, or any of a handful of reasons we can speculate on.  When it comes to rumors like this or any type of sports journalism, sometimes its best to ignore what the author of the piece adds in, and just sift through for quotes directly from Red Wings staff or other official personnel.  I can't tell you how many times I've read an article with a certain slant on a story, only to find out that it was entirely embellished or interpreted or what-have-you by the writer of the piece, and the athletes', or coaches', or general managers' words were taken either intentionally or unintentionally out of context.  Unfortunately there's a lot of slant forming that occurs here and on other forums as well, sometimes from otherwise entirely unbiased and honest journalism, and that can snowball into serious rumors.  Anyway, that's my advice.  You're free to do with it what you want.

There's a difference between hope and crazy.

I hope we win the cup to. But facts and common sense say it's 99.9% we don't.

We are only a couple of players away from having a legit shot but holland won't make the moves necessary. We may disagree on the players but I think we all can agree on that.


Facts and common sense say the Wings have a 99.9% chance of not winning the Cup?
