#2478482 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

Why did it take Babs a 3-0 defecit to realize Andersson centering the top line was bad and Helm needed better wingers? Probably wouldn't matter much in the outcome, but Helm is the best center on the team right now and he has Cleary on his wing.

getting sick of these china doll Swedes...its ridiculous.

 

You really can't possibly be calling Henrik Zetterberg soft? The guy has more heart and willpower than maybe anyone in the league. Without Z carrying this team for months, the Red Wings probably aren't sniffing anywhere near a playoff spot right now. He has been playing hurt and doing so at a very high level recently.

 

I'm all for being frustrated with injuries, but I don't think Henrik Zetterberg missing games has anything to do with being Swedish.

Per khan: Franzen could be ready. At practice hes on a line with darren helm and alfie....in place of...wait for it........Dan Cleary.

Could it beeee?!?
Nyquist z abby
Franzen helm alfie
Jurco sheahan tatar
Eaves glend miller

Dat lineup. Dem feels.

LOOKOUT PANTHERS.

 

Those lines are terrific. Add Pavel eventually (hopefully soon) and that would be a deep and talented forward group. I don't want Andersson back at this point. I'm genuinely excited about this team seeing the potential of that lineup.

Riley Sheahan is awesome. Sorry Andersson, but you can stay away if it means Sheahan keeps playing.

Andersson seems very expendable at this point. He's solid defensively and good on the PK, but is slow and needs speedy wingers to succeed (see Nyquist and Brunner). I think both Sheahan and Glendening bring more to the team already. There's just too many forwards and not enough cap space if the Red Wings ever get healthy to keep the best players around. 

 

Z - Pav - Abby

Franzen - Weiss - Nyquist

Tatar - Helm - Alfredsson

Miller - Sheahan/Glendening - Eaves

 

That would be my ideal forward group. It's just a shame because the dead weight (Sammy, Cleary and Bertuzzi) is preventing any roster flexibility.

How did Chicago tie it in the third?


Brendan Smith thought it was May 2013 again and passed it up the middle to the wrong team.

What a game. Love how hard this group competes. They are obviously overmatched most nights right now in the talent department, but they work really hard and are entertaining to watch. Excited to see what the combination of the kids and healthy bodies could possibly do.

Beating the Blackhawks is always sweet. Especially when Eddie has to suffer through it live. That clown needs to stick to Blackhawks broadcasts only. He can't put aside his fandom on a national telecast.

Finally! A subtle interference call against the Blackhawks. Of course, now it's just embellishment. Could there be any more bias? It's embarrassing to have this on a national broadcast. Eddie doesn't even try to be objective.

Smith reverting to his playoff series turnover woes against the Blackhawks. That was very untimely.

These interference calls are a joke. All three have been very soft. Eddie would not be singing the same tune for those penalties if they went against his favorite team.

Quincey is back to himself. Nice sell by Saad though.

What a weak call. They could get interference 200 times per game if that's the standard.

I hate Helm with Bertuzzi and Cleary. Talk about eliminating his speed with two anchors for wingers.


#2475248 Injury Updates

Posted by GoWings1905 on 21 January 2014 - 08:08 PM

Out at least one week in Red Wings injury terms is probably after the Olympic Break for Howard.

Huge loss, obviously. Jimmy was stealing games with the team unable to score goals and now they have to ride a habitually inconsistent Gustavsson coming off injury.

It's getting to the point where you almost just have to call this season lost. A lot of other teams in playoff contention plus the Wings inability to get remotely healthy is going to be very tough to overcome.

I just don't want the injuries to be an excuse for complacency in the off-season. Remove the dead weight, let the kids have permanent spots and make a move or two to solidify the defense.

Sheahan is so impressive. I'm just going to assume at this point the Red Wings likely won't ever be healthy, so he will stay up regardless. Certainly has earned it otherwise, though.

Jurco gets demoted to the 4th line for I guess not playing well in the two shifts he got prior to the third.
