#2540311 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 October 2014 - 11:45 AM

While watching the game last night I was upset with the non-call on Getzlaf.

 

However watching it today with a clear mind and from a few different angles it was the right (non)call.

 

He went down on his own.  The stick barely touched him.  It's the NHL.  Be strong on your skates...

 

Kronwall falling is irrelevant. It wasn't a trip that needed to be called -- it was the textbook hook on Kronwall's hands before Kronwall even went down. The hook was completely separate and should have been called regardless of what followed.

You think he outplayed Rask? Debatable. Rask definitely was the busier goalie with higher quality scoring chances. Jimmy still let in his signature back breaking goal but the team responded. Always an uphill battle with jimmy in net


How was it a back-breaking goal? It happened in the first period of a scoreless game. Back-breaking would imply the Wings couldn't recover from it, which they clearly did. And I would contend that wasn't even a goal that was Jimmy's fault anyways. Jimmy was good in the third period against Boston and it gets overlooked because he didn't blow the lead and people couldn't jump all over him for it.

lets keep track of how many times howard outplays the opposing goalie. so far he's 0-2

 

Based on what, the "eye test"? .941 save percentage for Jimmy compared to .917 for Rask. Oh, and Jimmy's team won the game too. If you are really being truthful, it's 1-1.

This league blows. The officiating is an ongoing disaster every single season.

The Red Wings played so well and to lose a game because of that. All of the bulls*** they call on a nightly basis and that gets let go.

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


Agreed. It's really noticeable in the first two games.


#2539717 Kindl on the block

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 October 2014 - 11:42 AM

Quincey does nothing at all offensively, but I can tolerate him if he doesn't turn the puck over and is somewhat dependable defensively. I still don't like the contract, but Quincey was fine last night. You shouldn't want a four million dollar player to be "unnoticeable", though that might be best-case scenario with Quincey.

First half Quincey from last season won't cut it. Anything since that point is pretty acceptable.

Nice win! Great way to kick off the season. Franzen was terrific -- I have to give him credit because he was fully engaged.

I love having Smith and DeKeyser together. They complement each other really well as a pairing. I held my breath every time Quincey and Kindl were out there, but it's worth the price to have Smith with DeKeyser instead. Hopefully Kindl is just holding Ouellet's spot anyways, though I didn't think Kindl was all that bad tonight.

Jimmy was very strong in the third. People would have been all over his case (deserved or not) had the Bruins tied the game, so props to Jimmy for holding the lead.

Chara is an idiot. Someone should grab a ladder and cross check him in the back.

One mistake, but good period otherwise. I thought the Wings looked faster and controlled most of the play.

The PP, however, never really got set up or put anything on net either opportunity.

all Jimmy. Way to step up Howard.


A perfect shot by a great player and people are blaming Howard. That goal is all on Ericsson.


#2539108 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by GoWings1905 on 08 October 2014 - 03:38 PM

So, Weiss is just not playing but Glendening, Andersson and Nestrasil all are? Weiss may be a complete bust yet, but I still think he has more to offer than any of those three. Give him a chance at least.

@asktheduffer: #redwings Holland: "On defence, we made a decision were going to start the way were going to start. The kids are not far away."

O...K.


Weak. Holland just took the easy way out again. New season, same frustrating rhetoric.

#2538747 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 07 October 2014 - 12:37 PM

Switch Gus with Abby and those forward lines look decent. I hate Z getting stuck with Franzen and Abby. Why is the Wings best player last season getting relegated to the third line?


#2538472 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by GoWings1905 on 05 October 2014 - 08:17 PM

Hopefully with Ouellet still being here, Kindl is out... Now we just make a deal that involves trading Q and I will be happy with our D.  Wouldn't mind trading Big E either...but he is Swedish so that gives him the tie breaker.

 

The defense stinks as it is and you want to get rid of Ericsson? The most reliable player the Wings have defensively and best penalty killer. Quincey isn't going to get traded -- they could have just not signed him to that absurd contract if they didn't want him around. 

 

I'm all for upgrading the defense using the surplus of prospects if the right deal is there. Trading E though, at this time, would be a huge loss. Ericsson is a much better d-man than Quincey. 




#2538239 10/3 Preseason Game: Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs

Posted by GoWings1905 on 03 October 2014 - 08:50 PM

Is he gonna score our goals too?

 

No, but he probably won't allow five either. Mrazek has looked far superior in the pre-season and Monster was atrocious after the new year. I think it's pretty safe to say Mrazek is the better goalie, waiver options or not.
