#2452349 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 09 November 2013 - 07:21 PM

Jesus Babcock, I said the exact same thing last game. Keep Quincey the f*** off the ice when Datsyuk and Zetterberg are on.


Or just keep him off the ice altogether. I agree though -- Kronwall and DeKeyser need to be out there against Stamkos. Quincey coughed up the puck in the neutral zone and allowed the Lightning to come right back in. He's noticeably bad almost every shift lately.

Tatar barely played 8 minutes. Meanwhile, Samuelsson over 11 and Cleary had 16.

How does that happen?

The Wings had four guys back, Eakin was by himself and they all collapsed allowing the Stars to maintain control in the zone. That goal never happens if they force Eakin to give up the puck.


#2451378 Tootoo Waived

How bad was the 2012 summer for Holland? Samuelsson is a three million dollar healthy scratch, Tootoo gets waived, Colaiacovo already bought out and Brunner is with another team. That's brutal and unfortunately still costing the Red Wings now in roster and cap space. Bringing Cleary back only furthered the issue. 

 

I hope Eaves sticks around over Samuelsson. Eaves is a good 4th liner and penalty killer. Another body has to go for Nyquist to come up, which I assume is the ultimate goal here soon.

Singling out Quincey in this game...just shows the irrational hate for him.  There are players for us that have played much worse


No one on defense has been worse. Not just tonight, but the entire season Quincey has been bad and Smith just gets most of the attention. For his price tag, Quincey provides nothing offensively and is equally disappointing at the other end. I don't think anyone is singling Quincey out -- the "irrational hate" stems from him being a bust since he came back.

The Wings just look so slow most nights. Having Helm back helps, but they need Nyquist too on that dismal second line.

Setoguchi is still a massive idiot. He leveled Pav there with a cross check. I thought he was only good for taking a dive.

DeKeyser has a rocket shot! Weiss has been excellent tonight -- probably the best forward for the Red Wings. Another faceoff win created that goal.


#2450910 Who is the Most Underappreciated Red Wing?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 04 November 2013 - 08:53 PM

Definitely not Quincey. The other two are respectable choices. My vote is for Ericsson, even though the consensus on him has finally become more favorable here.

I would have rather kept Colaiacovo and used a buyout on Quincey instead. Colaiacovo was at least a solid puck mover, something this defense is lacking overall. Quincey is just bad at both ends.

Kyle Quincey is terrible. Why exactly did Holland feel acquiring him a second time was a good idea?

Because he's a damn good hockey player, that deserves to be an everyday player on this team... or he's going to be a start elsewhere, rather than here.


Absolutely agree. Tatar has really clicked with Abby and Andersson too the past few games. I'm fine with a third line role for now -- Nyquist and Brunner flourished there with Andersson and Tatar can do the same. I don't see Tatar being scratched any time soon again with the way he has been playing.

Why are they trying the Samuelsson experiment again? Just let him collect his money. He's more useful not playing. Helm and Tootoo together would be fun to watch.

Wideman grabs Z and throws him down with the puck long gone. Officiating by the score in this league is something else.

Tatar and Abby have shown some nice chemistry together. Throw Helm out there with them as their center and that could turn into a real good third line.
