Wings on ice for practice. Eaves is skating wearing shield for jaw. Marchenko is skating, wearing No. 47

 

Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser is out with a lower-body injury. It's a day-to-day, believed to be a groin.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

wide, miss, block, wide, miss, block, wide, miss, block, injury,

 

I think the Wings should all be signed up for Yoga to iron out the groin injuries.

I think Kindl is hanging onto a spot by his fingernails. 

But he is still given PP time over Smith. Smith must be a real screw up in practice or something

So why are we hanging onto guys like Smith, and Kindl when we are this deep on D prospects??

dude this is Smiths rookie year, you don't think he deserves some slack?

I think it's time to bury the hatchet, and give Dmitry Bykov a call.  


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

His numbers that year were poor offensively.  And he wasn't exactly known for his physicality defensively.  I'm not sure if there was a contract situation involved there on top of that.  

 

In any case, from what I remember, Markov was the last Russian defenseman to suit up for the Wings.

Im sure he came straight into the side from the Russian league, no AHL stop for him. And if my memory is correct didnt he have #55?

Yes he did. I just played pickup near Chapel Hill, NC, and a dude was wearing a #55 Bykov jersey.

 

Another dude was wearing a Macoun jersey.

Alexey is wearing 47

I believe Bykov made some sorta deal where he could return to Russia after one season if he wanted

HA.

 

Seriously, whats the problem here? Improper conditioning? Babs' preferred style of play and not noticing he doesn't have those kinds of players on his roster? 

 

Do the Wings need some new trainers? This is ridiculous. 

 

I noticed Babs making a comment on 24/7 about his preference to make practices optional...but that he wasn't doing that these days "with all the kids around".

That's the problem.  Babs doesn't seem to know how to coach the kids.

Marchenko? Is that the kid who in 2010 was ranked 12th overall among European skaters, but told teams he only wanted to play in Russia and went undrafted? The same kid who the very next year told the Wings he would play for them if they took him, and the Wings drafted him with their very last pick in the 9th round?

He's probs just a plug. 9th round picks never pan out...

Or he's our late round 2nd coming of Nick Lidstrom. Late round miracles, that's how we do. 

 

I predict a 7 point game out of him tonight. :lol:

Kids came up after the injuries so I doubt the amount of practicing matters. Especially since our injured guys are the most likely to practice regardless of whether or not they were mandatory.

My bet is the training staff.
