  2. ECQF Game 3 GDT : Tampa Bay Lightning at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

    Brendan Smith is having a HELL of a game.
  3. ECQF Game 1 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 3, Red Wings 2

    I thought the Wings played pretty good up until the third period. That was MUCH better than last year's first game. For most of the series last year, it looked like the Wings were just barely hanging on....and they still managed to push it to 7. If Wings can play this well for the rest of the series and can get some decent goaltending, they might be in good shape.
  4. When does Larkin get the C?

    Zetterberg is no longer the heart and soul of the team? What games have you been watching? Zetterberg has played amazing so far and he and Larkin have both been our best players. Giving Larkin the captaincy would be a wrong move for both Larkin and Z. Kid doesn't need that pressure. Legitimate or otherwise.
  5. Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

    Thank you very much for this!! Just got 3 tix! Super excited. Was originally going to get the $270 seats, but I opted for the $230 because they were higher up. Not sure what the view would be like down in the 100 sections when it is off on one end of the rink. Officially excited now!
  6. 10/16 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

    Despite the loss, Mike Green and Nyquist have both looked better and better each game.
  7. 10/10 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Hurricanes 3

    I was at the game. As many have already said, terrible first two periods. I thought Larkin looked a little out of place in the first, but once Blash switched lines in the third, his line was clearly the most dangerous. I think Blash needs to keep Larkin at center. It's clear he is more comfortable there. I thought Nyquist looked 10x better tonight than he did all preseason. Hoping him and Tatar can get a couple over the next few games to get things going. Also, the Defense is SORELY missing Danny D. I think having him will help iron out some of the big defensive wrinkles the Wings currently have. Canes deserved that game, and I felt bad looking at the scoreboard seeing 42 shots to 20, and the Wings up by 2. Anyway, a win is a win!
  8. 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

    Justin Abdelkader is making me look like a fantasy hockey genius!
  9. 9/23 Exhibition GDT : at Red Wings 4, Chicago Blackhawks 1

    That was extremely pretty!
  10. 9/23 Exhibition GDT : at Red Wings 4, Chicago Blackhawks 1

    Yikes! I completely forgot he wore 17.
  11. 9/23 Exhibition GDT : at Red Wings 4, Chicago Blackhawks 1

    I see number 17 and I instantly think Dallas Drake....Fix this for me Richards.
  12. 9/22 Exhibition GDT : @ Chicago Blackhawks 5, Red Wings 4 (OT)

    Good hit by Smith!
  13. 9/22 Exhibition GDT : @ Chicago Blackhawks 5, Red Wings 4 (OT)

    Agreed. Him and Jensen haven't looked even a smidge out of place.
  14. 9/22 Exhibition GDT : @ Chicago Blackhawks 5, Red Wings 4 (OT)

    So far, Jensen and Larkin look the best!
  15. 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

    Anybody have any idea why Jurco was benched? Also I thought Nyquist had a sub-par game until the third. Zetterberg had a bad night. Lucky to get a point. Looking forward, I think the Tatar Sheahan Jurco line could make or break the team.
  16. 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

    I thought Howard played pretty damn good during the game, just not during the shootout. I don't give the shootout a whole lot of weight in regards to overall performance though. Also, I thought Tatar was hands down the best player on the ice for either team.....just not during the shootout.
  17. Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 1 Discussion (12/14)

    The star of this episode was definitely Daniel Alfredssons' kids' hair...
  18. 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

    I was thinking to put some more size on. He gets pushed around a bit too much for my liking. I think if he were a little bigger, he would be MUCH more effective along the boards. I understand that's not really his game, but I think it would help him out.
  19. 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

    I honestly think if anyone would have been better served in GR this season, it's Tatar. Not saying that he SHOULD have been in GR, I'm just saying Nyquist was wasting his time there. Tatar could at least play and get a bit bigger. That being said, I'd love to have them both with permanent spots on the team. Cleary and Sammy have gots to go. Period.
  20. 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

    Couldn't have gone ANY better for Gustav. Hell yes!
  21. 11/19 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 0

    I love watching Smith get interviewed. He always tries really hard to actually answer the questions, even if he is a bit awkward.
  22. Will young talent ever speak out against Wings philosophy?

    I don't know if we will ever see a player speak out, but as a fan, I REALLY wish some of the younger guys would be given a legitimate shot. Tatar and Nyquist, in my opinion, have more than earned a spot on the Red Wings roster. Although I like Bert and Sammy, I would much rather see Tatar and Nyquist playing right now. I was actually excited about this season because I foolishly thought we'd get to see more of Tatar and Nyquist.
  23. Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

    I have nothing but good things to say about Tatar. He is really quick and made the third line look great. I hope he doesn't get sent down.
  24. 1/21: Red Wings 4 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

    Very impressed with Brunner, Smith, and Lashoff early on this season. Quincy needs to go, again.
  25. WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

    I'm not, they are just playing at a crazy pace. Made the Wings and Nashville look like they were skating in slow mo almost. I am not knocking the Wings. They played a great first half, and a decent second. I just wouldn't want to be playing either of the Pens or Flyers right now.
