#2552389 11/28 GDT - Red Wings @ Devils - 7:00 PM EST

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 November 2014 - 11:55 AM

Absolutely, which is why I said earlier "hopefully Andersson (and Lashoff) remain out". I think Cleary is a huge upgrade over Andersson. Joakim provides nothing in my opinion, he is much like Cory Emmerton was for us for a couple years. Capable of eating minutes in a crunch for the time being but no real future in the NHL.


I disagree 100% that Jurco needs to "get back to banging". He's third on the team in hits, behind our perennial leader, Abdelkader and Glendening. That's pretty damn good for the style he should be playing. That's exactly why he would do so well on Datsyuk's wing. He can bang like Abby does, but has much better hands to finish on all those opportunities.


Jurco is starting to heat up, which is a great time to get him on a scoring line with Datsyuk and Tatar.

Anyway, no worries. The lines are the exact same as last game.


Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Tatar - Sheahan - Franzen

Helm - Datsyuk - Weiss

Miller - Glendening - Jurco


Kronwall - Ericsson

Quincey - DeKeyser

Ouellet - Kindl

Jurco was also terrific last night. I thought his best outing of the season and he has five points in five games now. 


Admittedly, I didn't originally like the idea of Jurco with Glendening and Miller, but he seemed to feed off their energy. 


Jurco was great on that line. He's a big-body who skates waaaay better than Andersson and instantly make that line a threat to score.

I bet whoever is paired with Lashoff has a bad game
I think Kindl is the lesser of those two evils especially since we would like to trade him. Kills his value when he was just starting to score

Brittany Maynard had the right idea.  Just seems crazy we let our pets die with dignity and without pain but not other human beings.

I understand some consider attendance to be a problem, but this is not a discussion we need to have in every single GDT.  Please start a separate attendance thread if you'd like to pursue the topic.

Have we tried Tatar-Datsyuk-Jurco yet?  That line combines the most skilled puck handler in the league feeding a guy who loves shoot the puck with a guy who is a big body to clear space who needs to be more offensive.  It could work.

I'm stuck with the Hawks feed, and they just complained about subtle interference!  :yowza:

Good thing the Wings were 100% healthy in the playoffs.  


If the Wings don't win the Cup every year, Holland sucks and the team needs to be blown up and he needs to be fired.  If Holland had signed Filppula, he'd have been an idiot, but Yzerman is a genius for signing him.


Completely rebuilding a team with low draft picks while not missing the playoffs doesn't happen easily or overnight either.  


Not sure where you get the impression that I think the Wings haven't done a good job as well. It is possible to give another franchise credit. Giving one GM credit does not mean I am hating on another. My only point is that something special is being built in Tampa, while some have their noses too high in the air because they haven't won anything since Stevie Y took over as GM.

Not my video, but this is an awesome fan video of the GWG


#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.
