  1. Ericsson needs to sit

    E is also our shutdown guy and gets the hardest matchups alot of the time. For that reason, his mistakes are usually amplified. Unfortunately we really do not have anyone else to play that role as well.
  2. Ericsson needs to sit

    He's actually been ok this year. Not near as bad as last year. He is what he is. An overpaid 5/6 defensive defenceman.
  3. What a stupid play. He really is clueless.
  4. Why are we better than last season?

    Generally speaking, older players start slow and come on strong later, while young players start fast and fade off. I was referring to the list the league came out with before the season. There wasn't a single Red Wing on it. And I agree that it's still very early.
  5. Why are we better than last season?

    You're trying awfully hard to put a negative spin on the season. We have the 5th best goal differential in the East. (One of the best indicators of team performance). Special teams have been good. All this without a "Top 50" player in the league. Its not amazing or anything but I'm quite happy with what I've seen so far.
  6. Why are we better than last season?

    Kids + Goaltending + Daley + Positive atmosphere Many prominent players have commented how bad and low the dressing room got last year. It looks like they're actually having fun.

  8. What a fun game to watch
  9. The MANtha watch.....

    I could see how if you were just looking at numbers you might think that, but I couldn't disagree more. The average and top end talent is better and much less one dimensional. Everyone on the ice plays defence. The disparity between the players is less so statistically you don't see anyone run away from the pack very often.

    Just curious... It seems to be a popular opinion that we're not very good at drafting in the last decade or so. Compared to who? Who's picked around us and has had so much more success? I think with the Wings in particular, scouting expectations have gotten completely out of hand.
  11. The MANtha watch.....

    Hopefully he develops into a stud for years to come, however he doesn't play anything like Corey Perry.
  12. Why in Zeus's butthole was Kronwall on the ice in the last minute?

    Also the American crest isnt a soccer style crest. It's actually based on the original jerseys from the 20s or 30s. It's the original. I do agree though. I like the maple leaf on the front of Canada and the USA letters on the Americans.
  14. Penguins vs. Oilers

    How is Matthews compared to those guys? Curious as he's actually American yet plays for a Canadian franchise.
  15. Penguins vs. Oilers

    I think you're vastly underestimating how knowledgeable the average American viewer is now compared to the 80s. The fans that "refer to players by numbers" might make up about a tiny sliver of total viewership.
