  1. Hirose has his second assist in his second game on Vanek's goal tonight
  2. Really bored at work and looked into when Yzerman joined Lighting... May 25, 2010 - Yzerman named GM June 10, 2010 - Guy Boucher named head coach March 24, 2013 - Boucher is fired, they ultimately bring up Cooper with no NHL experience. Looking forward to...Sheldon Keefe as the Wings' head coach in 2022?
  3. It really is best case scenario for the Wings while they wait for their prospects to develop. Jimmy doesn't have to uproot his family too.
  4. I was curious if Blashill and Yzerman overlapped in Detroit but it looks like Blashill became a Babcock assistant right after Yzerman left for Tampa. I'm hoping it is just a year, two year extension tops. I'm not against bringing him back I just wish the Yzerman question was settled before it happened....
  5. At first I thought of it as a mild “no” trade clause as a team may hesitate to get him for a playoff run if it costs a bonus. But I’m sure the Wings will just retain the bonus amount (and maybe more?) if a trade ever does materialize, and it is a nice bonus to Jimmy for taking a friendly deal and getting Detroit trade compensation. It sounds like he’s happy to be back in Detroit so this seems like a great deal for the Wings to me all things considered.
  6. It is confusing because of the double no (I didn't have enough brainpower to change it to something easier) but there aren't any restrictions, unless you wanted him to have a NTC?
  7. Mildly surprised at the cost... I think the bonus is $1.1 million if they make the playoffs so...... Hoping this helps bridge the way to future star goalie Filip Larsson (just got nominated for college goalie of the year as a freshman at Denver) Edit: Bob McKenzie confirmed no no trade/movement clauses in the deal!
  8. https://streamable.com/nulev Someone clipped footage of Hirose on the power play, I like his decision making overall...
  9. Hirose picks up his first NHL point with the primary assist on Nielsen's goal tonight! Only saw a gif on my phone but looked like a nice touch pass in the neutral zone. AA also scored his 27th, currently 2-0
  10. Grand Rapids signing: Pearson, 21, has spent the last three seasons at the University of Maine, serving as captain as a sophomore and junior and totaling 78 points (37-41-78), a plus-18 rating and 132 penalty minutes in 107 games over three seasons (2016-19). In 2018-19, Pearson notched a collegiate career-high 29 points (16-13-29) and ranked among Maine leaders with 16 goals (1st), 13 assists (3rd), 29 points (2nd), a plus-21 rating (1st), two game-winning goals (T2nd), five power-play goals (1st) and 99 shots on goal (2nd). He also ranked 14th overall in conference scoring and tied for fifth in goals, notching 20 points (10-10-20) in 22 games in Hockey East play. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound forward was also second on the team in scoring in 2017-18 with 27 points (7-20-27) in 37 games and was named to the end-of-year America East All-Star Honorable Mention team and All-Academic Team. Originally drafted by the Red Wings in the fifth round (140th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Pearson spent two seasons with the Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League prior to his collegiate career, logging 76 points (24-52-76), a plus-42 rating and 157 penalty minutes in 114 games from 2013-16. The Alpharetta, Georgia, native also represented the United States at the 2015 World Junior A Challenge, tying for second on the team with six points (2-4-6) in five games. His father, Scott Pearson, played 292 NHL games with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Quebec Nordiques, Edmonton Oilers, Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders during a professional career that spanned from 1988-00.
  11. Interesting twist on the Yzerman rumors: https://old.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/b1h9br/friedman_31thoughtspodcast_my_guess_about_detroit/
  12. Ya, I find it asinine to play captain hindsight over draft picks especially when it is outside the top 10-15 picks each draft. No GM is going to be perfect in these scenarios.
  13. Abdelkader just scored from Glendening at even strength? Are the Lightning even on the ice?
  14. I don't mean to alarm you, but he just got an assist on a Bowey goal (of all people)
  15. Ya between this, Green out for the year, and Larkin nursing his injury I'm guessing the league is taking note of this epic tank job (not that anything will be done about it I just am very amused by how this season is ending)
