#2542104 Weiss

Posted by VM1138 on 18 October 2014 - 11:38 AM

The thing that bugs me is that while Weiss didn't impress Babcock apparently, he's not terrible.  Maybe he didn't live up to his potential in his 26 games with us--though I still think that's because he played through injury--but he never hurt the team while he was on the ice like Cleary did.  He's got to get some playing time, but with Franzen OK and Datsyuk coming back soon, there's just no way he's going to see ice time if he's waiting for injuries. Honestly I'd rather see Weiss play than Nestrasil, but since they play different positions that probably doesn't matter.

First GDT post of the season, glad to finally have the new format finished and ready to post up for you great posters at LGW. 
Franzen appears to be fine, just a leg spasm, and likely will play. Monster makes his first appearance of the season. Let's follow up on last night's great performance and trim the leafs in back to back games. 
As always, lines are projected as it stands right now at the time I am posting this in the middle of the night. Lines and goalies are subject to change.

I've had to delete posts because somehow even after a win, the thread got derailed by calling out fans who complain.


Generally with a GDT for a game that's from the previous night we let the discussion meander into broader topics, but let's keep them actually hockey related please.

Never seen Z have two bad games in a row, sure enough! He was fantastic tonight. Jimmy played good too. Lets sweep these losers tomorrow.

Fair enough.  But he's got to be better.  As I stated, shootouts are a big part of the NHL playoff picture for the lower seeded teams.  


If the team can get him some goal support in shootouts then I think you might see him save more. It seems like he feels he has to stop everything to even have the slimmest shot at winning a SO and tightens up. 

For everyone crying for Tatar, we don't know who our 3rd shooter would have been, do we? 


True, but he should have been the first or second regardless.

For guys complaining about Nes in the SO... You guys do know he scored on Rask in the SO in preseason? so why not


Your first shooter is the most important. They set the tone for the rest of the SO as to whether your playing catchup or trying to finish the game. You need your best player shooting first not a rookie 3 games into his career.

"But it's one game.  Why are people so hung up on one game?"


Remember 6 months ago when we barely made the playoffs?  Every game matters.

2 points in October count as much as 2 points in April.


I disagree with this statement and here's why. Both games we played against 2 top 10 teams in the NHL and we outplayed both of them, not to mention we haven't looked this good (small sample size) since 2009. We have a perfect blend of elite players, mixed with up and coming kids, and the 4th line is playing fantastic and causing havoc.


Our D have been pinching in and making good plays, which hasn't been done since Rafalski, Lids, Kronner and Stuart days. We are fine, it's only 2 games into the season and I say that will full confidence. We aren't going 82-0.

The Wings look so much quicker than at any point in recent history. They are obviously flawed still defensively, but the forwards are really a fun group to watch play with their speed and tenacity.

Probably cause none of them use walking aid, be it a cane, walker or other elderly mobile aid device. Love the youth.

It's s*** like that that really ruins my enjoyment of the game. Get your s*** together, NHL.

Again and again...the officiating in the NHL is of a spectacularly amateurish level compared to other major sports, It is so inconsistent that its hard for casual fans to be sure what the rules are or know what's going on and it turns them off. Hell I've been watching ice hockey for 20 years and I still can't tell when the f***-bags in the middle are going to make calls or not....and absolute joke in terms of consistency and professionalism, and there are so many games I've watched over the past 5 years where the officials have decided the outcome more than the players.


Apart for Bettman's golden boys, I don't even think its bias, just incompetence. 


That said, wings were good again tonight, and if they can maintain those energy and skill levels, they'll be a lock for the playoffs

So funny watching people complain about their play already. It hasn't even been 20 minutes, and we've looked better than the Bruins so far, minus one bad decision by E.

Quincey was solid, and that's an accurate way to describe his game last night. Smith and Kronwall were good, DeKeyser was great.

There are varying degrees of positive play. You balance out the positive things that players do with any gaffes they make. Smith and Kronner made some real solid plays, and maybe made one or two small mistakes., DeKeyser looked great all around, IMO, and didn't make any noticeable errors. You know who else didn't make any noticeable errors? KFQ, because if he DID... if he did, you better believe LGW would be all over that. So yes, he looked solid. He didn't stand out with anything special, but he didn't make any big mistakes, either. Solid.

#2539129 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by VM1138 on 08 October 2014 - 05:39 PM

Why isn't Nyquist with Franzen and Z? Yeah, we want to bury on of our best goal scorers and neuter tthe top line with Abdelkader?
