You sure do have a lot of hamsters.

Only one at a time (and only 4 total since I've started naming them after Wings).  Drew (Andrew Patrick Ian Todd) died Tuesday.  So now I have none. 

 

Danny was looking promising as a middle name for the next one the way he's been playing.  Hopefully he'll be around for many years to come, and work his way up to the Hamster Club.

Sorry to hear that.

I hope Cola suits up. He is a vet and was playing better the game or two I saw him back from injury.

Danny D is a stud, I'm bummed that he's gone for now but obviously happy to see that he had such a huge impact so fast. When we win the cup this year will he get his name on it or would he have needed more playoff games under his belt? ;-)

Losing DeKeyser feels like when we lost Helm last year.

That's playoff hockey. Oh well. I think that people are overstating his importance. He's been good, but he's also been playing most of his time on the third pairing.

 

Really?  He's a rookie and a damn good one.  Sheesh!

Losing DeKeyser feels like when we lost Helm last year. 

That's about the same feeling I have.

 

To be competely honest I thought the kid looked nervous in Game 1, but in Game 2 he was back to playing his calm and collected defense and had those great outlet passes. It's a tough loss. Only 4-5 guys that would be worse losing imo. 

 

Hope isn't gone. But the guy I am looking to now is Jimmy Howard. He looked a bit shaky in Game 1, and Game 2 was one of the worst games he's played this year. If we're going to have any chance going forward he'll need to carry us when our defense can't.

Horrible news. My favourite Red Wings defender this season, can't wait to see him more next year.

The kid has ice water in his veins. He never panics and was the best puck mover on the team right from the get go.

I sincerely hope that his thumb magically heals itself in warp speed.  I no longer feel good about our playoff run.  That's how valuable I believe DeKeyser is to our D depth now.  If White or Coliacovo play over Lashoff, I may cancel my cable, and that's how much I believe in those 2 turds.  We need actual good shutdown Dmen like DeKeyser on our 2nd/3rd pairings, not a puck moving Dman that can't make a tape to tape pass and that ices the puck constantly.  Danny makes that 1st pass like a 10 year vet star Dman. 

 

f***!



Losing DeKeyser feels like when we lost Helm last year. 

And now we have neither and it's making me very upset.  And you're bang on, that's exactly how it feels.

True - however he's arguably been 1 of our more consistent Dmen, and to me it looks like he's got top 4 Dman ability with an emphasis on the defensive aspect.

That really sucks. Good thing is that the Wings have good depth on D. I am way more concerned with Kronwall's play then having to go with White or Colo. Kronwall was a turnover machine last night. I think the Wings playoff run depends more on Kronner getting his head out of his ass then DD going down. DeKeyser has a really bright future for the Wings. Tough loss.

His heart must be broken, too - it's clear that he lives to play this game.  Poor kid.  Poor us.  Hope CocaCola is ready to go, but I feel confident he will be... get well quick, Danny!

I didn't even know this happened until this morning when i was drinking my coffee and saw a headline on TSN that DeKeyser likely to miss the rest of the post season.  My heart sunk bad.  Is anyone else just not feeling it today now?  Cause that's where I'm at.  He's my legit #1 favorite Dman now.  Can we get some good news that Helm is ready now, cause that's the only thing that could offset this in any way cause Lids is not eligible...

had to have been on the teemu selanne hit and penalty, the way he reacted after gettting hit in the head by just shying away
