Did anyone else notice how nice he was...just like his sports idol Lids? I wouldnt mind a mean nasty dude like Weber but if DD turns out even 1/2 as good as Lids and is kind and respectful to the game and fellow players I am all in with the kid..

Played a good game. 

 

I'll take the good with the bad, it was his 1st game..obviously a little nervous..made a couple horrible passes coming out of our end but also made some good passes and some good dumps out of our end...plays his position well it seems and doesn't seem fazed by the moment.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

He plays his man better than anyone else on the team ties them up real good. Gooood skater nice passes. He plays a weird position I seen him play in the high slot and above the face off dot a few times. I don't know if that's good or bad cause he certainly took his guy out of play.

Couple of miss passes. Not afraid of ot saw him go in deep offensively. Babs not afraid to put him on the pk either. Looks promising.

I think if he plays this season out and next season hell overtake kronwall.

Yeah, his position was certainly odd.

I don't think he will overtake Kronwall just yet.  The big thing with DD is he doesn't score.  A number one, like Lids or Kroner, needs to be able to put up points.  Most of the number one guys these days are only good offensively.  Lids was so great because he was elite at both Defense and Offense.  But at the same time, I'll take a guy who is a elite shutdown guy.  I think DD is gonna be real good.

DD did look very respectful, almost apologetic when he put the body on anyone or gave them a shove. I hope he develops a nasty streak and adds about 15 pounds. He looks tall and lanky like he needs to grow into his size.

 

But to compare him to Lidstrom at this point is extremely premature.

DD plaued a great game, and got better as the game moved along. He played on the PK late in the 3rd. By the end of the game he was even joining the rush a couple of times. yes he didn knock a couple of guys down in front of the net. But being the new kid he helped them back up after the whistle. Overall, great 1st game. Should be a long time star on the D.

Great game by DD today.  Poised and made some good passes.  I think his most impressive attribute is his hockey sense.  He seems to read the situations very well and make the right play.  Very refreshing.

Danny and Smith could be the perfect match for the Wings future 2nd pairing.

I'm not an expert on DD but I'm hoping Smith ends up being a tougher version on Kronwall. He should end up being a future #2 guy.

He's looked great so far which just shows how high his potential is. Looking forward to watching him grow as an NHLer for the next several years!

Watching this kid play one word comes to mind:

 

SMOOTH!

 

Everything he does seems to be done with ease, never seems to be trying to hard, but always seems to be in the right place or make the right decision.

 

Very smart player for his age.

 

Doan had the entire upper half of the net last night and Danny's stick got there just in time, I didn't even notice it until I saw the replay.

 

The kid is SMOOTH!


"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

 Smooth is the perfect word for Danny D that's for sure!  He really reminds me of someone with his "ease" of the game....
