2/17 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Wild 3

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Here we go Dman at deadline here we go. stomp stomp.

Need a top-pairing guy desperately. I just don't know what assets the Red Wings have to get one. I don't really want to give up prospects since this team is more than one player away regardless right now. Almost have to go the overpay route in free agency this summer.

Yes, and playing with the slugs he has will make you look worse.

Combination slump and gross decrease in skill. Zetterberg >>>>>>>>>>>>> Cleary and Samuelsson. I have bigger fish to fry on this team than Filppula

Three-way trade, for a 1st round pick?

Dan Cleary-type player? Knows the system? Steady veteran?

well id hate to even ask this but would you rather us make the playoffs and go out again in the 1st round or miss it and hope its a wakeup call tp holland and co

The new cliche is "get into the playoffs and you'll have a 1/16 chance to win the cup". But this group has 0 chance at winning the cup. Best to miss the playoffs for Kenny to address our problems and not dodge it like how he dodges women.

The worst part of this whole thing is that this is completely avoidable without missing the playoffs. Holland knew Lidstrom was close to retirement for years. He knew the equation of clinging to old players too long wasn't working anymore. And when things are going ****-up like they are right now, there is shuffling within the system and trade to try and right the ship.

There is absolutely no need to miss the playoffs other than to shine a brighter light on what everyone can see plain as day.

good news

fil should come cheap next year

Unfortunately, no... we'll pay him based on his potential. We're still waiting for him to breakout, no?

...or we're so afraid to lose him to another team, we'll overpay.

Sometimes, scoring in the heat of the moment is easier than having to think about a penalty shot in such a pressure packed moment.

And they were both breakaways too. By the time he got set, he had time and space to make any kind of move he wanted.

Agreed. But I still think the first chance, 1-1 with the goalie, was better.

Sidenote, since you mentioned European leagues: I've just checked, and e.g. in the Swiss league, this situation would clearly not be a penalty. They mention the situation explicitly in their "Casebook", i.e. where a player is fouled from behind, stands up and gives a clear shot on goal without being disturbed. If NHL refs are judging like this too, it would have been better if he shot wide on his second opportunity, sigh.

thats correct but holland lazyly sat by thinking Lidstrom would no doubt come back again i think he was shocked to see him go but i think he should have been on the ball as far back as knowing staurt was high tailing it and when Rafalski retired he should have been all over it but because he waited now his got this shut off switch and in denial thinking we are a great team we are a 10th or 11th place team at best right now and when we are healthy maybe 9th or 8th one line cant get it done we are getting nothing from Flips Cleary etc i agree with others to give the younger guys the time becausde they are hungry enough to do it and Z and Dats are our only Vets in it

Well that sucked. Was hoping we could beat a 1 line team. Did the Wild ever complete a tape to tape pass all game? they looked like a JV team out there with their passing, yet we still lost. 08 seems like a long time ago....

08 was a long time ago. 5 years ago, in fact.

I think the season is old enough to evaluate tgis team calmly. Injuries or no, few players are performing as well as they should. We have bright spots, but I think we are all agreed the roster is a mess and way out of balance. It all needs to be recalibrated, focusing on roles and playing styles. That will take a long time, and we are limited to having little to offer in trades.

I differ from most of you, though, in that o want to win now. It's highly unlikely a team will win more than one cup a decade now, so I'm good with giving picks for prime players who can win now. Just not really old, injury prone guys. I know that's unconventional but it makes sense to me.

As for the struggling power play, Babcock said, “I thought Samuelsson was impressive on the power play, he really shot the puck, so we'll put him on that first unit and get them shooting and getting it back.''

According to the box score, Samuelsson had 1 shot on net.
