A win tonight against Vegas puts us at 4-1 on the season. That's pretty damned good considering we've only played 1 home game.

Zetterberg and Mantha keep rolling and Daley racked up another 23 min of ice time. He's actually looking like a really solid signing on defense.

Would it be safe to put a bet on an 8-0 Wings win?

The Panthers are a waste of space but I've been to a Wings / TB game and it was a great experience.

Had to laugh.

Before the game, the Wings got trolled by the golden knights by exclaiming that the Wings and the Knights have the exact same consecutive playoff appearences.

I tuned in half way through the 2nd period. Wings were up 2-1. Wild second half of the second period and while I thought the Wings were too cutsy on their passing instead of getting the puck on the net, they put the hammer down in the 3rd.

I'm still impressed with our Wings fans in opposing buildings. Its like we had more people in the stands then Dallas did in that game. I love hearing the "Lets go Red Wings" chants.

What was the better option? To not sign him at all? They can trade away Sheahan now, that should make jaadam happy.

Negative. The Wings will still own his rights next year. The only thing he'll have an advantage on next year is making more money because I believe he can file for arbitration.

The Daley signing was pretty good this last year but yes that's def Hollands MO and its going to catch up with him when we have to give Mantha, Larkin and AA more money in the upcoming years.

His cap management is garbage.

You mean like the long term deal they gave Franzen when he was younger and he still is not seeing the ice?

The Franzen deal was bad but he's talking about contracts like Darren Helm or Abdelkader.

The contract to Helm was stupid as shit and you will never get me to defend that.

Abelkader paid his dues and was deserving of a long term contract.
