#2546233 11/2 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Sabres 3 (SO)

Don't anybody blame the fourth line.  Smith turned the puck over in the D-zone.  He's been good tonight but that was on him. 


Andersson deserves blame too for being the slowest player in history and lazily throwing the puck behind the net.

Big E defending his teammate. Nice to see because that's a really dirty hit by Nolan. Should be five and a game.

Wings said Kyle Quincey won't return to the game due to lower-body injury.


Can't believe I'm saying this, but that's actually pretty disappointing. The prospect of Kindl and Lashoff playing together again is quite scary. Quincey has been solid so far this season.

Preferbly he should never have taken it from Z in the first place.


Agreed. Any scenario besides him never giving up the puck the entire time would have been ideal.

Gus! Nice pass by Z.

Franzen would not really make a difference when he comes back.  The PP was horrible when he was in, and it still is.  The ONLY thing Franzen is going to do when healthy is bump a more deserving player out of the lineup.  I only mention him in response to someone above me saying put him back in and we will be dangerous.  Franzen is more than replaceable with better players that are in our organization.

 

You really think Nestrasil offers more than Franzen? Franzen was actually playing well before the injury and the Wings can't score goals. The Red Wings clearly need more top-six players and Franzen (as infuriating as he can be) still produces much more than the alternatives on this team.

Why wasn't that goaltender interference? Jimmy fell, so the goal should not have counted if I understand the precedent set tonight.

Anyone else think the tying goal might have been offside? Looked pretty close live and then I really thought it might be on replay.

Wow! What effort by Z to get that puck to Abby.

Zetterberg is unreal. His determination is just on a completely different level.

How do Glendening and Miller get a shift before Nyquist and Tatar?

Ugh, Nestrasil again showing he doesn't belong. Get rid of the puck.

The fact that Abby didn't score there, proves that he shouldn't be on the PP.


Nah, after four years now it makes perfect sense to keep forcing a fourth liner into a top line role.


#2542525 Dan Rosen Pens a Great Piece on Babcock's Coaching Tree

Posted by GoWings1905 on 19 October 2014 - 02:57 PM

I get that. I just don't think he's worth 5 mil. Quenville and Sutter have 2 cups each recently. What are they getting paid? Why is Babcock worth double that? Let him walk if he's going to gouge the organization.


Those two coaches have been blessed with far superior rosters to any Babcock has seen since 2009. I think Sutter is a good coach, but Q doesn't even get last year's Wings team into the playoffs if he's the coach instead.


#2542477 Joe Louis Arena to be Demolished

Posted by GoWings1905 on 19 October 2014 - 10:47 AM

The Joe is absolutely a dump, but it's ours, so you still love it. It's like when people rag on the city of Detroit. I do it too in jest, but when someone else does it, you right away come to the city's defense. 

 

I don't know that I will necessarily miss the outdated features of the Joe whatsoever, though there's still something redeeming about going there and experiencing a game (especially in the playoffs). I'm 6'3" so I will be thankful for any seating where my legs aren't numb while attending a game. 

 

I guess more than anything I just have a ton of great memories from my childhood and growing up watching the Wings at the Joe. You can take those along to the new arena, but it is a little sad that the Joe won't be there at all in a few years.

Really? If this would have been a loss there would be 50007 posts after the final buzzer.

Where y'all at? :lol:


Unsuccessfully tracking made up stats for Howard.

Outside of the second Bruins game, the Wings have played really good hockey. I am enjoying watching this group much more than the past couple seasons. They are quicker, more relentless and seem to have improved quite a bit defensively so far.

Still have some kinks to work out for sure, but this is all without Pav too.
