#2554489 12/7 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Hurricanes 1

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 December 2014 - 02:09 AM

GDT looks fantastic. 


2 more points to be had, let's snag them up and keep this great start to the season rolling. 


I've been thrilled with the resilience this team has shown, the ability to come back and hold leads in tight games, kill off important PK situations and secure these much needed wins and points early on. 


With Weiss playing as well as he has, Howard's strong play, and the kids stepping it up, there truly is a strong balance out there that is capable of competing every night. It's an exciting season so far to be a Wings fan. 


Keep it up boys, LGW!

If St. Louis ends up scoring I'm okay if someone crosschecks the s*** out of him as he's celebrating.

If the Wings somehow find that elusive top-four righty d-man, they can hang with anyone in this league. Never thought I would say that two months ago, but these guys just continue to impress. A really fun team to watch play.


Imagine what a few shootout wins would have done as well.

I really like how our lines are looking... Helm-Pavs-Tats is such a good line

Totally agree with the Glen/Miller post. Every time someone comments that Miller is expendable and doesn't add anything I shake my head. These guys are the reason our record is what it is.


We're top 10 in Goals for, Goals against, Goal Differential, Penalty Kill, and Power Play.


Tank it

I love how we're winning these games because of guys like Sheahan, Miller, Helm, Glenny, etc. We're no longer a one line team carried on the back of Z and Dats (even though Dats has been spectacular as of late).


I don't know about you all but I'm excited to see what these guys can do in the playoffs, what kind of hunger they possess and how badly they want it.

Man, this team is good. Obviously we still have our stupid players and stupid moments, but the good is outweighing the bad. And tons of young guys are NHL ready right now playing in the AHL. We're in good shape.

#2552372 Why is Kindl not playing?

Kindl and Larkin for Myers?


He won't put up Mantha numbers but I think we would really regret trading Larkin down the road, I get the impression he's a great kid and works his ass off.

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.
