After watching this first few games this season, I am really starting to miss guys like Lidstrom, Rafalski and Yzerman running the Power Play.  Babcock needs to focus on this area of their game.  They are missing too many opportunities.


 Life is short..........so get on with it  :champs:

Babcock needs to get Cleary the hell off the PP.  He's useless.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

CLEARY has no place on the PP. He has not ability to control the puck off the boards and face the middle of the ice. He faces the boards and loses the puck - just not enough skill or speed to warrant a place on the PP. I think eaves should get a shot in his place. 

 

We need White on the point on the 2PP unit and then it won't be so bad without Kindl.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Why is he on the team?  

 

As I said in the GDT, if we don't have anyone in the minors who can offer more than him, then we have the worst farm team in hockey.

Same thing with Emmerton.  

 

Do we not have anyone in the minors who can play center better than Emmerton?  If not, we're in deep trouble for the future.

Cleary I think is more a case of loyalty.  He's paid his dues so Babcock's got his back.

kronwall and smith are supposed to be the QB

 

kronwall has been a huge let down this season IMO even with his 4 assist on the PP.

 

2nd unit is worthless. bertuzzi fil and cleary. thats terrible, first unit scores or a bust. I really think they need to switch it up

What loyalty?  It's not like he was playing for free all those years in an internship.  

 

He got paid well enough for his previous contributions and now it's time to move on.  This team doesn't owe him anything beyond what they've already given him.

This. everyone argued with me in the off season that we should keep him because he will score so many goals without the bummed out knee, so far I have been right and he is as useless as I have been saying. He is a millionaire, time to go elsewhere, maybe retire cleary

Zetterberg runs the PP, he's usually the one with the puck.

 

Geeze, reading these comments you'd think the Wings were 2-4-1, and not 4-2-1 (4-1-1 after the 6-0 blowout in St. Louis).

 

Like I've been saying, this is a fun team to watch, just sit back and enjoy.

Same thing with Emmerton.  

 

Do we not have anyone in the minors who can play center better than Emmerton?  If not, we're in deep trouble for the future.

 

Difference with Emmerton is he never had anything to start with.  Cleary has nothing left because he's spent it all on the ice for the time, the guy has been an absolute warrior for us, especially in the playoffs.  I feel sorry for the guy, his body is totally trashed and his reward is scorn from the fans and a release in the summer.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I dont think Emmerton get enough ice time to warrant complaints. He does what he is supposed to, no more no less. He works hard. What does Miller do that is so great?

Talk about a thread going way off topic

Why is Emmerton and Millers name even in a power play thread?

I think the power play will see a bump when White and Sammy return may sound ridiculous but they offer more options. All the eggs are in that first power play line. Gotta bring the captain or Pavel off the 1st power play and balance out the second one and stop blaming Cleary.

I think they still have faith Cleary is hitting a rough spot and are giving him ice time so he can regain some confidence. It's arguable. We'll have to see.

The QB job is up for grabs for sure. It's up to the D to sort that out in Babcock's eyes. I thought it would have been Kronwall but he has had a tough time holding onto the puck and making good passes. The number of shots we are getting is pathetic. Brunner is the only guy pulling the trigger half the time.
