  1. 10/18 GDT - Red Wings at Maple Leafs - 7:30 PM EST

    If only we had a guy on our team with game breaking goal scoring ability. But where would we find such a player? And how could we possibly justify paying him more than Luke Glendening?

    Listlessness implies that they CAN make plays, but just aren't putting in the effort. I'd counter that many of our players have no idea what to do with the puck when they find themselves with it.

    But our "good in the locker room"/60 is off the charts.

    Watching us try to pass is excruciating. 50% of our team has essentially no chance of making a play at any given time. Tends to happen when you value things like grit and hustle more than you do skill.

    Mrazek's rebound control is abysmal tonight. Jesus.
  6. Next GM

    I hate when teams hire home town heroes to coach and GM, it's always received well by the fans and almost never works out. Usually sets bad teams back even further. Of the people currently available I'd take Lombardi, but I'm not even crazy about that. The only GM I like absolutely is Tallon, and I don't see him going anywhere. So I guess I'm no help on this. I'd be fine with Martin I guess. Seems to do a good job with player acquisition in his role as Griffin's GM.

    Don't get too excited, we will waste it on a guy that projects as a 3rd line, two way, forward with tons of intangibles.

    Mike Green is trying to play his way off this team.

    HEY BLASHILL, STOP DEFERRING TO VETERANS!

    Geoffrey Fieger is a badass, just look at how he's posturing in that commercial. Also, hes clearly ride or die if there commercial has taught me anything. He's probably good friends with Gucci Mane.

    Antoine Roussell is a menace. Hence, he's my favorite Dallas Star. Loved that guy every since he crosschecked Boston's McQuaid in the neck for taking a run at him.
  12. Rate our current forward group

    Nyquist with zetterberg and mantha Tatar with Larkin and AA Frk with Neilsen and svechikov Abby with helm and bertuzzi
  13. Rate our current forward group

    Two things, we aren't even icing our best possible lineup (which would have AA, Svechnikov, and Bertuzzi), and so as a result we have two lines which have no realistic shot of contributing offensively. As a result is say our forward lines are trash in their totality. Ice our best lineup and they're probably 12-18 in the league.

    Could be worse, you could be like the Wings organization and beat writers who are still "joking" about luring Lidstrom out of retirement. A joke which was funny the year after he retired, but sad when made 5 years later. I think Ken Holland and co. would burn an orphanage to the ground if it meant they could go back in time to 1997.
