  1. 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

    /u/ComradeDoctor from http://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/21rzci/incredible_goal_by_gustav_nyquist/cgg00jo?context=3 made this gif you guys seem to steal a lot of gifs from reddit
  2. why do people want to get rid of franzen? He's a perennial 25-30 goal scorer.. BETTER THAN MOST OF THE LEAGUE. we're not even paying him 4 million either last year he was on pace for 25-30 goals again this year he's on pace for 29-30
  3. Howard = Average

    at the moment, howard is definitely average. hope gust plays in the winter classic.. 8-0-1 would howard have made that matrix save? nope

  5. Zetterberg out at least 2 weeks with herniated disc

  6. The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

    NHL did an interview with him today. he said he wanted to stay in Detroit for life http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=23466&navid=nhl:topheads
  7. First Trimester Player Grades

    in my opinion it is pretty solid, except I think cleary quincey and samuelsson are rated too high
  8. Sir, I have palmed my face so many times now it hurts
  9. Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

    f*** weber, hope hes out for a while. hope hes also stupid enough to continue to go without a visor so this happens again
  10. Lines Thread

    Bert-Datsyuk-Tatar Franzen-Z-Nyquist Abby-Helm-Alfie Miller-Weiss/Andersson-Sammy I don't want to break up our two lines that are on fire at the moment. Datsyuk defaults to #1 center because he's datsyuk. Putting bertuzzi up there will be good because he's physical and plays with a lot of grit, has some skill too. Tatar is a high skill guy and is fast, and that speed/energy will bring a lot to that line. I want to see Tatar get some time with Datsyuk If this top line performs well, we will have three scoring lines- something we haven't had in a hell of a long time. I really don't want to see Sammy out there, it should be Eaves Tootoo or Emmerton. Unfortunately Cleary screwed up their careers something to consider: bringing helm down to the 3rd line is very beneficial in the long run. He wont log as much ice time as a top 6 forward, so we can preserve his longevity. He's a speed guy, once he loses that (with age) he will be a lot less effective. If he's playing less his legs will be fresher and he'll be around a lot longer with his greatest asset: speed.
  11. Weiss

    Weiss is the new Scott Gomez. As long as we're winning, lets just forget about him.
  12. 11/29 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Islanders 0

    don't get me wrong, I don't expect him to get hot playing on that 4th line, but he was on the 2nd line for most of the season and didn't do much either there really isn't a place on the team for him at the moment. top 3 center positions are solidified as of now Datsyuk Zetterberg Helm Andersson/Weiss (5m/y to play here is BS) cant break up that Zetterberg line... too good at the moment. datsyuk is guaranteed 1st line center when healthy
  13. 11/29 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Islanders 0

    still nothing from our $25 million 4th line center
  14. What Does This Team Need More/Most?

    we need an offensive defenseman. our blue line is pretty poor on the offense other than kronwall. we need somebody who can blast in some slap shots.
  15. Weiss

    What do we do with Weiss? He's stuck on the 4th line right now... we signed him to be our 2nd line center but he did absolutely nothing there. Dats will be the 1st line center Z needs to remain the 2nd line center for now. The line of Mule-Z-Nyquist is just too good to split up Helm is playing at a level he has never played at before, Alfie likes playing with him, and that line in general is doing great atm Andersson is usually 4th line (although with Dats out he was bumped up) What place does Weiss have on this team? Do we try him at wing? Has he even played wing in the NHL before? The fact is he has 3 points on the season, which is embarrassing. I remember Babs said before the season started he needed to hit 50 points at least. This is obviously not going to happen unless he somehow goes on a hot streak for the rest of the season, which wont happen with Cleary and Sammy as his linemates Maybe Babcock thought "well he's so used to playing with trash in florida, lets throw him in with Sammy and cleary and see if that works!"
