Not this much.

I can't remember any rookie who screwed up this much.  

 

He's not exactly 18 years old either.  I thought this guy was overripe.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Zetterberg has 0 goals. He needs to have a game 7. Our CAPTAIN is who we need to look to.

Haha that cracked me up when I heard it.  Torts is a comedy goldmine. 

 

p.s. What I wouldn't give for Dekeyser in the lineup instead of this thread's namesake. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

I thought this guy was overripe.  

 

Yeah I don't quite know about that either.  So were Kronwall, Ericsson and Kindl and look how their first few years turned out.  Now I may be talking out of my ass because of some tipsiness but I'm not exactly sure how even after all this over-ripening (is that even a word?) in the minors that they still need a handful of years and not just half or a full season of growth and adjustment to the NHL game.  I'm not exactly aware of how well prospects have developed on other teams who may or may not go with extended time in the minors. 

 

But I'm sure you and most people on here know or at least have an inkling that the whole "overripe" company line is just a front for "We actually just want to hoard all the potential assets we possibly can."  It's not completely out of the realm of possibilities that the philosophy delays and perhaps holds back the development of some.

I have been a lurker for a long time, but after watching smith this playoff season, and then tonight, to see him single handedly give up two goals.. to start the third and watch him with his head down on the bench.. if he is in the lineup on Wednesday, the coaches are asking to lose. I feel like the guy has been part of well over 50% of the goals scored on the wings in the last two series.. he is just too much of a liability at this point.. get him the hell out of there.

Yup. Eriksson, Pushor, Kuznetsov, Fischer, Quincey, Ericsson, Kindl, Smith. I defend all our big blueliners. They are the guys who make the difference.

Dekeyser walks into the lineup and easily plays better than our whole defense.  Some guys just learn quicker than others.

 

I'm worried about a guy in his mid 20's that looks completely lost out there, despite already playing all season and a handful of playoff games.  Some of the mistakes he's making are things they teach Canadian boys who are learning defense in little leagues

Defenseman prime is 25 to 33 years old. Smith wont be great next year either. But 2014-15, he will be good. And 2 years later, Phenominal. Wait til DeKeyser stumbles next year. Whipping boy of LGWers sucks!

He better be the next Scottf****** Niedermayer or Drewf****** Doughty or Niklasf****** Kronwall or whatever idealized comparison the Wings scouting staff/Hockey prospects journalists have touted by that time or else you're gonna get it!  Corey Perry style.

Why? Will Smith be the lucky recipient of a brain transplant?

 

Some defensemen just think the game better than others. DeKeyser looks like one of those types. So while he might stumble next year like you say, he still clearly has a fundamental understanding of the defensive side of the game. Smith hasn't really shown that at any level--and he doesn't produce like Letang or Karlsson either.
