I don't agree with giving Abdelkader an A.  As Doan so eloquently put it: "How do you have only 11 points playing with Datsyuk?"  He's doing good things without the puck, and I get why he's on Datsyuk's wing now, but the guy should have more points just accidentally from playing with Datsyuk.  He's just not an all-around good player. He's just a poor man's Holmstrom.

He basically did nothing and then he did something, but it was a small something, but it mattered, but, then again, he did do a whole lot of less-than-something-that-really-mattered.

 

This is all very scientific and objective.

When he and Abdelkader were in their respective sin bins. We all figured he was launching expletives, but, I think it was Pierre who cleared it up.

 

It actually makes me like him more. Doan, I mean.

I've always loved Doan.  He's just like Backes.  Everybody hates playing against him because he's often borderline.  But he's a force, and anybody who wouldn't want a guy like that is crazy.

I think for play compared to expectations, Abby gets an A. However, if we start every player at the same point, I say he is a solid B/B+ for playing his game well. IMO he has been better than Cleary, and he has managed to produce the past few months. Abby doesn't have a lot of assists, but his forechecking, screening, etc. have led to a lot of goals.

 

Impressive stat: Abby leads the Wings in even strength goals.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of his. I think he would've done wonders for this team. But, alas, he's loyal.

 

I think he's a bit of a rarity in that he just seems to flat-out love, love, love the game of hockey. So when he crosses a line or whatever, I think it's because he's just that into it. Point being, I don't think he's a ****** bag or a bad egg or anything like that.

 

It was fun watching his reaction to the extra two minutes he got. The most animated I've seen a player in awhile.

lmao, very scientific indeed. The problem was, we had a 1 week training camp, and playing games every other day doesn't leave rrom for practicing much, so it took a while for renney to implement his system in detroit and it finally took and we have been absolutely phenominal on special teams since.

How much of that is Renney, though? And how much is it Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, Kronwall, Brunner, et al. finally just being themselves?

 

Not trying to take any credit from him, mind you. (OK, maybe a little.) I just think, by this point, our special teams could probably coach themselves just fine.

Would you have said the same thing last season?

C-, though it seems fairly certain that he's injured. He can't lift himself off the ice without an assist from his stick.

 

Thats been the excuse for the past 4 years.

 

Also: Filppula: A+

I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean.

 

Our PP was dreadful tonight. Thankfully it didn't matter.

Not sure injuries are an "excuse" when they are legitimately hampering a player's ability.

What's Filppula's? Most disappointing player on the team this season.

Abs - B+

Smith - B-

Abs had a slow start but with the play he's shown lately and the damage he could potentially due playing with the guys he is, should only help him.

Dekeyser A+

I never seen him play before playing with the Wings. But from what I read in the scouting reports, he has played as I had hoped he might eventually develop into.
