#2473738 Would Samuelsson ever consider retiring mid-season?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 17 January 2014 - 04:45 PM

I seem to be the only one who thinks this but I think Bertuzzi has been really bad...
 
He makes bonehead passes and takes bad penalties, and of course hes terribly slow. Doesn't do anything on defence and when he does he tends to take that penalty. 
 
On a positive note hes basically all we have when it comes to a net front presence, and hes decent when playing with Z and D together as he seems to be more confident


You aren't alone -- I completely agree with you about Bertuzzi. He consistently has quality linemates and PP time, yet contributes hardly anything offensively.

Everyone focuses on Sammy and Cleary (rightfully so), but Bertuzzi has only been marginally better than those two. I would prefer all three to be healthy scratches when/if the Wings start getting bodies back. Sheahan, Jurco and Glendening all bring much more to the team already than those three.

Needless to say, I will be very upset if any of these guys are back next season.

The Red Wings are working hard. Just being competitive in games is rather impressive given the lineup right now.

I don't see this as an effort problem at all. Unfortunately, this team is just seriously devoid of talent at the moment.

I'm not even mad. Could have easily won again, just like in Anaheim.

The calendar is moving along, though. Much more of a hole and the playoffs may not happen. Somebody get healthy -- I'm so sick of hearing "the injured players are close." They have been claiming that for nearly a month.

Cause other than our top line, each one has an anchor on it.  Either Cleary, Sammy or Tuzzi.  Make that the 4th line and load up the other 3.

 

Possibly. Really though you can move these parts around and it essentially won't matter. The Wings have one scoring line, maybe a third line and two fourth lines out there tonight.

They just desperately need healthy bodies back very soon. The team hasn't really played poorly lately, but obviously tough to score goals with no top-six.

Worst job ever: Kyle Quincey's agent. There's no way he deserves an NHL contract next summer.


#2472987 Jurco Called Up

Posted by GoWings1905 on 14 January 2014 - 04:40 PM

Great news! Jurco should have really stayed up the entire time with all of the injuries to key players.

I guess this could also mean the Red Wings don't expect anyone back on Thursday with no Tatar either.

Having almost all of your scorers out is not bad coaching. And claiming that a player got ten minutes on the ice when he in fact got fifteen is bad fandom.

 
FSD was incorrect. Yahoo, TSN and NHL.com all have him at 15:01.

Fair enough, just going off what I saw. Still thought this was a poorly coached game by Babs.

How has Tatar played only ten minutes? Him and Sheahan have been the best forwards easily. Babs is lost.

Not a huge fan of cross-checks to the face, but totally acceptable there given the receiver.

Tell Perry he's gonna get it.

Tatar! Awesome tribute to his dad on what has to be an incredibly tough night to be out there.

Sheahan looks really good too.

Quincey is such a disaster. Can't we see more of Marchenko instead?

Tatar is relentless. Definitely been the Wings best player in the new year.

Glad to see Sheahan get his first. I have been impressed with him in the games he has been up. Really want him to stick around this season as the fourth line center.

Enough with the right-handed nonsense. Samuelsson should play about two minutes per game if he has to dress and absolutely never on the PP. Put Smith out there.

Babs says that garbage constantly and it's consistently inaccurate. If this team is going to be overwhelmingly mediocre anyways, I want Nyquist and Tatar playing a lot of minutes. Dan Cleary has no role here in the future (realistically, not sure in Ken Holland's world). Call up Jurco and Sheahan too. Let's at least build a foundation instead of middling in mediocrity with a bunch of pieces that have no long-term value.

Best Kyle Quincey moment of the season by far.

Punching that diving ugly clown in the face.
