#2370084 3/16 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Canucks 2

Why call up Nyquist to scratch him? It's not like there aren't other options to choose from in the unproductive forward category.


#2370061 Quincey out tonight vs. Nucks

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 March 2013 - 07:05 PM

It's easy to rip on the guy for his lack of offensive production, but he's actually been pretty good defensively. Obvs not worth the contract, but you can't argue with the way he places himself in front of the puck (clearly). Hoping he recovers swiftly.

 

Definitely agree. Outside the horrendous start, Quincey has been pretty solid defensively. I expected far more from an offensive standpoint out of him, but he has been reliable at least in his own end.

 

I would much rather have Quincey right now than Ian White.

Wow! Nobody deserved that more than Pavel. What an absolute clinic he put on tonight.

Huge two points on the road. Tomorrow will be tough, but maybe Jimmy can steal one.

Cleary with Datsyuk now instead.

Very creative Babs!

I would keep the lines the same. Things are going very well with lots of goals and chances.

Even if Pavel somehow likes having Abdelkader on his line (which I doubt), the biggest problem is this extended trial together hasn't worked. At all.

Datsyuk needs skill around him. Not floating Franzen and a two-point grinder with no offensive ability.

Weak call. Can't even finish a check in this soft league now.


#2369444 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by GoWings1905 on 15 March 2013 - 08:28 PM

I'm gonna pretend Datsyuk is going to play forever like I did with Nick and just deal with that very horrible day when it comes.

I like Eaves playing, but benching Tootoo is really stupid. Get Abdelkader or Cleary out. They are the two least productive forwards on the team right now by far. Even Emmerton's hustle and PK ability lately has more value.

Did you copy and paste my post from last game?


I would like to see this happen before i shovel the first tostitos bowl of taco salad into my face

 

Haha, I didn't see that but I like the way you think. It makes more sense for Babcock to at least try Z and Pavel together again now with Filppula back to center the second line. Nyquist is being wasted on the third line too.

Franzen has got to start hitting the net. These are quality scoring chances being blown for a team struggling to score goals.

How about we do the simple solution and scratch Abdelkader or Cleary and let everyone else in question so far play?


#2368129 Babs: " ....the players decide who plays, not me...."

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 March 2013 - 06:24 PM

Come on Babs -- Justin Abdelkader would be in the press box every night if this were true.




#2367968 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 March 2013 - 11:08 AM

Our prospects have to hate this organization sometimes.

Tatar plays very well and gets sent down. Cleary and Abdelkader do nothing and get big minutes with Pavel Datsyuk.


#2367649 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 March 2013 - 06:55 PM

All these home games are done now. I'm not sure the Red Wings banked enough points during them unfortunately. The schedule gets grueling now and they are going to have to win on the road to get in.

What a pathetic weekend.
