I think anyone who will boo at this game is a clomplete jerk. NONE of these guys are obligated to come and play in this game - well maybe the guys currently employed by their former teams are - but the guys volunteering should be cheered for. I don't care what your disposition is on the player leaving the team - if the team reached out to get them to play in this, then as fans we should accept the fact and treat it any wrong-doings as water under the bridge. If call yourself a Wings' fan, you better not boo #91

Communist! JK - if hockey is cancelled I'm going to become a much bigger Lions fan...
2 years, 7 months ago on Time for 55 to Drive | August
I would buy season tickets the year of CBA renewal...
I don't think many people are worried about our inability to score next year - i think we're more worried about the frequency that we'll be pulling pucks from our net. I am not going to blamed Jimmy for much, because we all know he is a pretty damn good goalie. However, if you don't put people in front of him that can cut down the amount of action he sees, well it won't bode well for poor Howard.
Also, we can count on Homer being gone to Sweden - and I wouldn't be surprised if we packaged either Franzen OR Filppula with Nyquist or something for a defenseman.
2 years, 7 months ago on Believe in The Wings - Because We Can Score | July
I don't think KH needs to help NSH sink their ship either - but I do think the Red Wings could use Weber, so it is perfectly acceptable to go after him. If we don't end up getting him and just drive the price up - well then ok thats too bad, it will just give Poile another thing to cry about to the media....
2 years, 8 months ago on Wings Should Offer Weber A Contract Like Noone's Ever Seen: $12M+ | July
I think the point is, we'd force Nashville to do that to keep Weber. Sure, they can match that $12M, but until someone forces them to do that, there is no reason for them to throw that much money at him (Weber). Also, PHX would be insane to trade their best defenseman (or maybe even player, assuming they don't get Doan back) for those guys.
Realistically, this will be Weber's last year as a Predator (if at all). TO me, it looks like he wants nothing else to do with that team - my best guess is ownership, and its willingness to spend money to ice a good team. They just can't hold onto their players, and can't build a team that can win it all - so the players just jump ship.
That being said, we'd put NSH between a rock and a hard place if we put that offer out
Man screw that guy who was trashing Ken or Mick. I'm fine w/ Murph, but god dammit leave the other two out of it.
2 years, 8 months ago on Smith For Calder in 2013 | July
hell yeah it would be worth it - well only if we continue making the playoffs like we have and don't get any early picks (like #1-#20) for the next 4 years. Plus there is no guarantee that a 1st round pick will even play out (sure it is a greater possibility, but weirder things have happened)
I think handcuffing Nashville is the way to go. Screw those Nash-VILLAINS over. Still not sure about the "Weber-ing" on Z tho...
@marti783 @ThroatShot Has everyone forgotten about Ericsson's NTC??? Holland and the Wings are committed to him. If anyone moves it is White-Quincey-Kindl.
2 years, 8 months ago on Wings Will Be Going After Schultz | June
@FiveforFive I wouldn't consider it "losing" hudler. More like, "parting ways" with hudler
2 years, 8 months ago on Wings Land Euro-Star | June
Well my day has been made.
2 years, 8 months ago on Helm Re-Signed for 4 More Years | June
@thebiglachovsky @ThroatShot he'll be on the 2nd line with Filpulla and Bertuzzi. Two guys that will get him the puck. It'll keep Franzen on his toes so when he starts slacking/taking too many PIMs we'll see Gus up with Z and Pav.
2 years, 8 months ago on A Sniper in the Midst | June
Are we suggesting to roll Z-Pav-Bert, Eaves-Filps-Nyquist, Mule-Helm-Cleary, Miller-Abdelkader-Mursak/Emmerton??
@Twig @Robert1103 I think if we were to trade anyone, it would be Quincey and Franzen. Whatever team we sent them to would guarantee Franzen for a serious amount of time, while they would have the opportunity to sign Quincey to a decent contract. He is still an RFA so he would have to go to arbitration to get more than the team really thinks he deserves.
2 years, 8 months ago on Ryan Suter - Not Worth The Hype | June
@Twig @Robert1103 It is a business - the players all know that. Sure you might have upset a guy like Fedorov for paying another player more, but there is no way Lidstrom would ever take it that way. When the free agency is as bare as it is this year, guys are going to get over-paid for. Remember Kovalchuk?
Ok we all know Kronwall is going to be the #1 guy next year. Suter would be perfect to play with him - it would be like the Kronwall-Stuart pairing but much better offensively, and about the same (if not better) defensively.
@Robert1103 it sounds like you play too much NHL12 "Be a GM" mode.
@Robert1103 the problem with that is, EVERYONE knows that. Good luck finding a GM that will trade a "REAL" defenseman for a guy that only plays when he wants to
Never, and I mean never, believe Leaf fans. If you ask enough of them, someone will tell you #99 is gonna lace them up one more year and play for the Blue/White...
2 years, 9 months ago on Knuble Wants to Return To Detroit | June
I think it is time to commence: "Operation Steal NSH Defenders" - go get Suter and Gill!

2 years, 9 months ago on Onward and Upwards - A Perfect Poster For The Perfect Human | May
Probably nobody; will likely keep Joey Mac, as I believe he has a 1-way contract next season. There is no way we're looking to replace #35, and I think 1/2 of the games that Joey lost were the team's fault. I am by no means saying he is a perfect goaltender, but if we had played our 100% in front of him (OR CONKLIN) he wouldn't have looked as bad

2 years, 10 months ago on Operation Eaves Complete! | April
I don't see giving Q or Abby that much $ (that is IF Abdelkader comes back) - they are both RFAs next season, so either have to take the deal given by Detroit, or go to arbitration. For what Quincey will be doing here, I do not see him moving up more than 125k. Abdelkader will be lucky to get 1M, and Helm will probably get 1.2M or something to that tune.
If they feel Hudler is a valuable asset, he'll be back for probably the same amount and Homer will likely be gone. If Stuart leaves, that leaves an opening for Smith, and hopefully Ericsson can become a defensive stalwart.
We're probably going to rock the Nyquist/Datsyuk/Franzen line out of the gate, leaving Z with Filps and a new guy. Put Bertuzzi/Helm/Miller, and Cleary/Abdelkader/Emmerton-Sheahan
This is insanely difficult to figure out seeing as the next CBA is still in the works - so we might not even get a 12-13 season...
2 years, 10 months ago on Changes Mean Changes | April
I'm just glad Babs has said this:
2 years, 10 months ago on Pour Me Some Whiskey: Our Season is Over | April
I hope the Wings win the next 3, and then the preds lose Suter and Radulov to free agency.
2 years, 10 months ago on What the NHL is Dead Serious About | April
set the tone for Mike Smith too...
@Jay Argentina @Red_Wings-Devilmasta
Pff - Babcock wouldn't have played the guy anyway. Which is unfortunate; He was never given a chance out of the gate IMO
2 years, 10 months ago on Stunned: Weber Fined $2,500, Not Suspended | April
His fine is the equivalent of putting a quarter in the swear jar.
I'm fully aware that this is the largest fine allowable by the CBA, but c'mon - what is the point of even doing that. I feel like Weber is going to laugh menacingly as he writes the check for this (probably on a arch-villian check too)
2 years, 10 months ago on Clerks | April
Ok, they also think every series is going to go to at least 6 games.... Plus when I want to read about hockey, ESPN is basically the last place I go to do so.
2 years, 10 months ago on We're Underdogs! (Or Screw ESPN) | April
Last year, my friend and I were watching the Wings (per usual) and decided Eaves is one of those guys that flies waaay under the radar, but just happens to be in the right place at the right time, every time - and they always seem to be important. This usually caused the two of us to just yell EAVES anytime he gets the puck. "I don't score goals everytime, but when I do - its awesome"
Get better bud!
2 years, 11 months ago on Time to Lift the Spirits of a Wounded Wing | April
Yeah, 3 games - available for first game of the playoffs. This is kind of a blessing in disguise - get Kindl some ice time before playoffs. I did notice Babs was trying to get #4 some PP time, that I disagree with - I'd honestly rather see Ericsson on the PP to try and earn that contract that he was given.
2 years, 11 months ago on Qunicey Shanabanned? | March
I'm glad White was sat this game - I think after he had the great start to the season, he has gotten a little too relaxed. Now I'm no NHLer, but my opinion was that defensemen were supposed to be reliable - White has been anything but lately...
2 years, 11 months ago on Red Wings Recap: 4.1.2012 | April

2 years, 11 months ago on Mega Millions at $640 Million: Helping Others Live the Dream | March
I'm sorry, but I don't think Nyquist is quite ready for the #1 line in the big show. As much as hate Franzen right now, he needs to be there. If there was a move to be made, I'd rather do this:
#13 #93 #44
#40 #51 #14
#8 #20 #26
#48 #96 #11
Once Helmer returns, put him where Abdelkader's at and move Abby to line 4
I'd really like someone to teach Kronwall how to play defensively. He's starting to remind me of Mike Green. Causing some sort of turnover in the offensive zone, and then making either his goalie, or D partner look a fool. For the rest of the defenders, I think benching Q was the right thing. Homie needs to stop taking stupid penalties, and play some more responsible D. Ian White is probably the most inconsistent guy on the team, and Big E need not cause turnovers in the front of the net. Kindl hasn't played enough for me to bitch about, and don't nobody say anything bad about Stuart - anytime he looks bad it is because of #55
#5 #52 -- remember the playoffs a few years ago??
2 years, 11 months ago on Epic NOHS Roundtable Part 1 | March
I really want it to be a goalie, so I'm going with Jimmy. However, if there is a Red Wing that we should vote for, it should be Pavel - he would likely get more votes from other-team fans than Jimmy would.
I'd like to see one of Jimmy's huge glove saves from earlier in the season - it'd be epic.

2 years, 11 months ago on It Stopped Being Funny A While Ago, Howard Hurt | March
idk about blaming the ice for this one, but I sure wouldn't say Kronner laid out a bad/suspendable hit. Kronwall caught him clear in the head, but only because Voracek's head was where it shouldn't have been.
2 years, 12 months ago on Intent To Know: NHL Makes The Right Call - No Suspension For Kronwall | March
Expect to see at least 3 Red and White sweaters on Saturday, 3 rows up from the glass at Bridgestone arena, in Nashville. Suck it Dater - I'll wear my #33 Kris Draper Red Wings jersey in whatever city their playing in, because I AM a fan of my team.

3 years ago on Detroit vs Columbus: Worst Team Ever? | February
All good things must come to an end, and at least it wasn't against a sucky team like the Ducks/Stars/Oilers. The boys had a good run.
1c should be moved up to 1b and Howard is amazing.
I cannot express how angry I get when our PP gets stimied trying to enter the zone, and just has the puck casually knocked away. I think Filps needs to go back to "Datsyuk's School of Dangling" for another few lessons, and Cleary should be playing in Franzen's spot. What a douche - we're on the PP, so he goes for a stroll in the offensive zone (after a failed entry) and puts Z offsides.

POWER PLAY GOALS FTW. They've only gotten 2 in a game 3 times this season (or something?) now..
3 years ago on Flyers vs Red Wings Recap: Record Edition | February
Someone get him to agree to come if Lidstrom signs for another year. If Illitch really wanted to pull some strings, he'd get the people who make the schedule have TB at DET on 12/30 or 12/31, and then give TB a few days off. That way The Captain will be in town anyway...
I also hope Yzerman continues to say he will not play, or at least the media reports it. Can you imagine how bonkers Comerica Park will go when he steps out onto the ice??
I really wish that they would've waited until at least next season to make this announcement - its like getting asked what you want for your birthday next year, on your birthday.
3 years ago on No Stevie? Y? | February
I just put my deposit down for my season tickets. Tho this game will not be included, i will (or at least i was told) be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as I have for my season seats to this game. What're the odds that DET/TOR wear the Pats/Cougars jerseys they had for the first time the two teams met? So excited I cannot contain it.
