#2585742 3/26 GDT: Sharks 6 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on Today, 09:12 PM

Well, that sucked. Gotta come back with Mrazek on Saturday, Jimmy was given a chance to rebound... 19 seconds in.

 

 

On a good note, attaf****** boy Weiss, I wish he pointed to Babs after the goal Hulk Hogan style and hit em with a leg drop. Hope even when we get healthy he can stay in the line-up, he's got some good chemistry with Pulks.




#2583985 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by rick zombo on 22 March 2015 - 01:01 PM

I hope Babcock sticks around. I want to see Athanasiou and Mantha on the 4th line in two years and Glendenning Helm and Andersson in the top 6 playing realgud.

This should really put the whole "Howard can't keep us in a game" thing to rest.

Good call putting zids on, best d-man on the team

 

Besides Kronwall you mean. Kronwall is very much undervalued by some people on this forum. He had an awesome game today by the way.

Kerry Fraser's take on the game (TSN.ca):

 

Wes McCauley is a patient referee with very sound judgment. He is not one to overreact. I can guarantee that there was way too much being said from the penalty box, the players' bench and on the ice by the Penguin players that resulted in the unsportsmanlike conduct and misconduct penalty that was assessed to Kunitz at the end of the period. There was absolutely no need for Kunitz to go out of his way to slide the puck in the direction of referee McCauley who was standing at the Zamboni entrance waiting to exit the ice. When players engage in excessive whining and complaining, as it appeared the Penguins did in the first period, the referee will stop the 'drip' and shut off the tap by imposing a penalty. Teams can develop a reputation for whining no differently than players do for diving and embellishment.

 

The Penguins have earned the undesirable reputation with several of the referees for having too much to say. As a team, they need to turn off the tap on their own as they move toward the playoffs. The referees' patience has already worn thin.

I can't stand the guy but let's not get carried away here, Pierre knows a ton about Hockey and the players, more so than anyone on LGW would ever know.

Dudes a walking encyclopedia.
His knowledge is ridiculous....
He gives off on tangents talking about who random players were on a line with in peewee hockey, I don't necessarily like him, or dislike him, but he is realllllllllyyyyyyy knowledgeable.

Radio guy just said how he admired how Babs will switch up the lines when it's needed and not wait too long....

 

HA!!!

 

What has he been watching the past week?

For all these bottom six players that are on the team because they are supposedly good on the PK well they suck

You smell that s***stain? Howard is horrible. Nobody can defend him now! How many years now, since he got his money, has he started out looking like he may do something, then get injured. This guy is injured injured more than Barbie doll. Should've traded him over the summer and signed Miller. This team will go nowhere with Howard.

 

Howard has a better GAA and Save % than Miller soo.....

So Brendan smith on the first pair for two goals against at even strength today. Can everybody who thought that was a good idea raise your hand...and then go purge yourself of other bad ideas.

 

You obviously haven't been watching games closely lately. Smith has been one of our best players the last few games and most consistent. He is skating well, moving the puck quickly, joining in the rush, and playing pretty good D as well. Kronners has looked far more comfortable with Smith than Ericsson. 

 

Kronners- Smith

Danny D- Zids

Quincy- Marchenkio

 

I would sit Ericsson for a game and keep that as my top 4 I really like that.

I do and I still think it's a good idea. Smith was our best D-man out there today, admittedly in a team effort where my grandmother probably would have been our best player (and she's dead). But using this game of all games to pick on Smith is strange to say the least. Same goes for the people who complain about Howard btw. This teams problems are certainly not named Jimmy Howard or Brendan Smith.

Our forwards haven't even been bad... Jimmy has been solid as well


#2580731 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by F.Michael on 12 March 2015 - 08:50 AM

Helm has shown decent touch this season. Besides, if he skates around like a maniac and forechecks hard like usual, that's insanely valuable. Tatar and Pav will score on that line anyways. Pulkkinen can't get the puck to those two or create space anywhere near the level that Helm can.

Helm's play style is even more valuable come playoffs.




#2580728 Helm injury update and a very good one too

Posted by HelmFan on 12 March 2015 - 08:23 AM

I'm aware the chances are that he won't continuously put up points.
My question was, if he put up a point every other game, would you object to him staying there.
I get that it seems crazy to have a prototypical 4th line c as a first line winger, I understand that.
If he scores or is directly involved the scoring at a .50 ppg was the context of the question.
Whether or not it was a fluke that he scored, or a soft goal, or any other knock against him being on datsyuks wing is irrelevant.

 

 

that's an odd question. 

 

If he scored if every other game he would be a 40 goal scorer, and making 7 million dollars.  Of course he'd be on the first line.

 

last time we had a guy even close to that good, we signed Franzen instead.
