  1. Been feeling that way for a while. The panic definitely outweighs the passion. Rittich beat Toronto, not the Flames. The Flames got shellacked. MTL, TML, OTT. The lack of abilities on the team are tipping my balance to make us sellers. The roster needs a shakeup or 3. Just put Lindholm back where you found him for now, 1st RW, and realize shuffling weaknesses around hasn't been working much.
  2. Too bad Hamonic can't do that in the O zone...it has to be some brain dead throw your stick at the puck move.
  3. So Subban would be a better acquisition, on which planet? You;re beside yourself. Subban would be a nightmare.
  4. Rasmussen is a giant, good in front of the net and defensively. 2017 9th oa Wings fans breathed a lot of hate at him for not being an instant 40 goal guy last year. He's now 20, in the A and missed significant time with a back injury. Doubt the Wings want to move him, but you gotta pay if you want to play. Moritz Seider could be ready as early as next year, and the Wings backend is an atrocity. I'd say the basement on Rasmussen is an NHL 3C. Detroit's prospect depth is above average everywhere but at G. They have good young forwards, but D is not good outside of the 3-4 in the prospect pool, where batting a thousand never happens. Brodie would be a big add for them. Maybe a 2nd back re-sign clause. For the record, I don't wanna lose Brodie, but something has to give with this team. The dynamic has been half asleep more often than not this year, imo.
  5. You can take solace in this is coming from bloggers that never played competitively. Anyone remember Domi cold-cocking Samuelsson? It wasn't even Domi's teammate he injured for god sakes. Suggesting Kassian go after a diminutive innocent bystander is ridiculous. These writers and analysts always have these ridiculous takes. They talk about players respecting one another, yet this is their great idea. Why does anyone read it? Chances are way above average that one team doesn't want to send a signal to the other 30 that they're predatory on the other team's star player. It won't go well. I know the league has changed, but the respect level hasn't. Now do this to the talking heads, so maybe they'll understand.
  6. I definitely wonder if Detroit is interested in Brodie. Closest team to his hometown too. Just not sure Brodie's value heading into UFA. They have 2 - 2nd and 2 - 3rd rd picks, is that the way to go? Or maybe a Rasmussen?
  7. Imagine our top 3 D being: Mike Green Danny DeKeyser Jonathan Ericcson. $12.5mil per. Hard to even talk about coaching when the roster needs a purge. The commonality though, is Gallant coaching an expansion team, and Detroit looking like an expansion team.
  8. I'll be surprised if Tkachuk doesn't catch him a few more times. Kassian isn't smart enough to see it, and never catches Tkachuk in that situation. Tkachuk's been winning this battle of wits, so hopefully that's turning the table as opposed to the Kane thing.
  9. Nothing quite as beautiful as an understated goalie going to the big smoke and laying down a statement game after his all-star inclusion. 5-0 in shootouts. Mr. Automatic.
  10. He's despised. lol I see Yzerman being patient here. They're bad, and it's not Blashill. lol. This is mainly Holland's team...it'll take a while to fix.
  11. League parity. Every team is dealing with it.
  12. I think it's just media hype. Even Kassian can't be running around trying to catch Tkachuk, because he won't catch him. How many times does Tkachuk have to make him look DD (Developmentally Delayed) for Kassian to not play that game with Tkachuk. He just gets sucked right into Matt's World. Then the, "he won't back it up by fighting" retort. Why yes, that is correct. How many times does he have to play this card for you before you get it. He's trying to win, you're being humiliated and get all personal and selfish. It's a team game. He knocks you off of yours masterfully, because he knows how to. You can't beat everyone up for making you look DD. It's not 1980.
  13. I'd be surprised if Detroit hired Gallant. Blashill was extended in the spring for 2 years. The team is young and he's had a lot of success in Grand Rapids working with the young farm. His 1st yr as head coach of the Wings was good, then you lose Datsyuk and Zetterberg and it's a full on rebuild. They're in a marathon at this point, not a sprint. So hiring Gallant wouldn't make sense and goes against Stevie's patience. He hasn't constructed the team yet, so worrying about a coach isn't the issue. Cleaning Holland's mess and finding the right types of players is the issue. A new coach won't fix that defence.
