#2094591 Norris turning into "best offensive defenseman"?

Posted by egroen on 09 January 2011 - 01:29 PM

Byfuglien should need to beat Lidstrom by at least 40 pts to be considered the best defenseman in the game. He's not even the best on his own team.

Not that I want to "Piss in everyone's Chelios" after a nice win like this, but it was just a January game, where we were outplayed most of the game, doesn't mean anything really.

I want to see more than one before I start thinking our defensive deficiencies are done with.

But still, great game under adverse conditions. We've now handed Vancouver their last two losses. I guess we've earned the right to act like it means something, even if it doesn't.

I have to completely disagree. Games against the Hawks, Sharks, Canucks, Pens are not just another game. They are the games where the best is playing against the best.

What team do you think the Wings feel better about beating, the Canucks or the Oilers? The fact is, not all game are created equal.

This game truly showed me we cannot complain at all anymore about these injuries. We got outplayed, but we proved we are the best team in the NHL, with a substandard Detroit Red Wing team none the less.

Howie needs to play like this for this team to make it far in the playoffs. No more 2010 Howard, 2011 Howard needs to play like 2009 Howard.

Esteef,

What happened when Jody Shelley boarded McQuaid earlier this year, was he taken out in an ambulance? No, the officials walked him away, no one did a thing to him. Your over generalizations while comical are not true!

What happened after Cooke cleaned Savard's clock, or when Bergeroen was boarded?

Would I have liked to see dents put into TK's face by a guy like Mac, sure, but that does not add validation to your statement.

Just another chance for the enforcer crowd to jump up and scream:

"See, what did we tell you!"

A blindside elbow to the head is not something that is part of the game, but I'm sure our 2 minute PP really got Kostopolous thinking about his actions :rolleyes:

Even the small suspensiion he"l get if he gets one, he'll still be out there doing the exact same s***

Agree. Personally I think players like this should be kicked out of the League. That's the only way to send a message to these no talent cheap shot artists.

Lack of production isn't the problem.

Lack of commitment to team defense is.

Oh guys... Come on, not the enforcer debate. Take it to the tough guy thread.

If Stuart played for the Bruins, Flyers, Ducks etc Kostopulous wouldn't have made it to the box. Just sayin'...

If Stuart played for the bruins, flyers, ducks etc, he wouldn't have a cup.

I say let Howard go down with the ship. Osgood should be fresh tomorrow, no point in saving Howard's pride at this point...

Pull Howard, more than anything, his goals against are soft and have AWFUL timing.

Hughson doesn't call for the Canucks anymore, except for on HNIC. But I would argue Jim Hughson as on of the greatest of all time


Ah, okay, I had a feeling he wasn't an official Nucks play by play guy anymore. Guy has a hell of a voice for broadcasting. And I'm no fan of the Nucks, but I gotta love the way he says Luongo's name.

GET JIMMY OUT OF THERE. Good lord.

I mean this with no disrespect to the Wings or any of you, but you guys have the most biased broadcast crew in the NHL. I have Center Ice and watch every team's broadcast crew, so I know. I have watch every wing game this season.
Minny has the biggest a-holes for commentators, but your broadcast crew, (especially with Mickey) is UNBELIEVABLY cocky. They rarely discuss the other team. If Lidstrom poke checks a guy, they go nuts and talk about it for the next 5 minutes. Yeah, Lidstrom is the best, but coome on!
And for some reason, they avoid talking about the Canucks at all costs. They can't stand the thought of the Nucks being ahead of them in the standings.




Maybe the Wings broadcasters are waiting for the Canucks to actually accomplish something. So are you, right?

Bad news for Howard is that those goals were significantly worse goals to give up than he gave up in the last game when he got pulled and given a game off. Not the worst goals against, but really two goals he could have and should have stopped. He had no chance in the last game and again, I was surprised he was pulled at that point, but it's been worse tonight already.
