  1. Captain Z

    X1000 Datsyuk is flashier, Z will never make the kinda plays Datsyuk does however when Babcock needs somebody to shut a guy down he goes with Z. This is a great problem to have so this isn't a Dats vs Z thing. I love to watch Z in the zone, his stick work and positioning is so good, Datsyuk's stick work is obviously even better but that s*** ain't even human.
  2. What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

    x1000 Its 2003 just not quite as crazy, in the last 21 years there have been a number of times where after a particular series or game it looked pretty dark. In all those circumstances Kenny and Co came through and made the necessary tweaks and they brought home yet another cup. Even if you don't think Kenny can do it, that he and the organization were lucky or now maybe they are too old you still owe him a chance. He's helped to give us 21 years of spectacular hockey and I believe a bunch more we just need to be patient. I do think however the wings really need a 2nd/3rd line scorer with speed. Speed and grit would be nice but that's a tall order.
  3. WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

    Time to let it all hang out, bring the A game and Nashville stands no chance. Game 6 here we come!
  4. WCQF Game Four GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 1

    Time to win or go home, luck or not Wings better come to play.
  5. 3/21 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Rangers 2 (OT)

    They played well with the exception of Datsyuk, they all did about what they are supposed to do. Zetterberg looks like himself and even Conks was good. Don't know what Datsyuk was thinking on the OT goal, not sure what he saw to make him double the dude coming over the line, you knew they would send it to the open and then bam its in the net. He'll be fine, everyone makes mistakes. I don't understand the panic on this board, when healthy they can play with anyone and have proven so. When guys go down your team is going to get worse and if you lose 8 or 9 guys your going to lose a bunch of games. The starters are the starters for a reason.
  6. Datsyuk knows he has been awful.

    LOL he is always funny Z&D will come around, they are too talented not to. Hockey is a funny game some times you score alot on junk and sometimes you work really hard and make good plays and nothing.
  7. 11/15 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blues 2

    The only thing that really concerns me so far is they aren't clearing the lane on shots. When things aren't going well they are firing 10 maybe 15 shots directly off shinpads, sometimes it is unavoidable but when you have more time say on the PP you have to clear the lane. Last night for some unknown reason they kept trying to take everything into the slot. The Blues knew where they were headed and the wings just kept turning it over there. Perimeter play can suck but sometimes you got to take the slightly longer shot to open the slot up. Regardless they weren't in this one, super sloppy and alot of nonchalant type play.
  8. Datsyuk & Zetterberg have been split up

    As an aside from the forward's discussion how odd is it not to be talking about Kindl-Ericsson. They haven't been perfect but certainly capable for a bottom paring.
  9. 11/1 GDT: Wild 2 at Red Wings 1 (OT)

    By hook or crook just win. 3-1 Wings Jimmy Howard has the hat trick after getting tired of waiting for someone to score.
  10. 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

    Good to see Howard back in net, win or lose all I want to see is a team that is hungry on the fore-check and willing to work.
  11. 10/25 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 4

    The year after with Hossa was even worse, there were a ton of games where they didn't really play the first two periods and then put 4 or 5 goals up in the 3rd and left with a W and only really played 20mins. The bottom line is its too early, its too early to really know anything about this team or what a particular player is going to be. At the end of October I think you take a pretty good look and say here's maybe were we see some problems, then after Nov. you'll really know what's going on.
  12. Pronger injured after high-stick

    x2 Said it better than I could. I don't think anyone should ever be forced to wear a visor but eventually somebody is going to lose and eye.
  13. What's up with Zetterberg?

    Patience, the ZDC line isn't clicking right now. The idea is right and they are getting some good looks just no finish.
  14. Hudler?

    Tuomo is a good player who would be a nice addition to the wings but he isn't a 2nd line center on the DRW. Dude does not move the puck efficiently enough for 2 line duties.
  15. 10/8 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Avalanche 0

    They look good, nearly everyone looks like they have alot of drive....still only two games lets see where they are at the end of the month.
