#2474838 1/20 GDT: Blues 4 @ Red Wings 1

Posted by GoWings1905 on 20 January 2014 - 08:56 PM

How does Tatar not see the ice during a 5-on-3 when you have Eaves and Bertuzzi out there? I know the penalties play a role, but this game needs more of Sheahan, Jurco and Tatar.


#2474518 Injury Updates

It's insane how devastated by injury the Red Wings are that even getting one body back is a huge boost.

Boy did the Red Wings ever need a break and they got one. Feels great to get a win at home, even though it was due to a horrendous mistake.

Proud of this team still. They competed hard yet again and that's a positive with so many injuries.

Z and Jimmy were terrific. I thought this was the best game Nyquist has played in awhile. Riley Sheahan is beyond NHL ready and Glendening brings much needed energy. The future looks bright at least, once the spare parts on the roster are gone.

Puck luck! O'Halloran being an incompetent official finally benefits the Wings.

O'Halloran will never miss a chance to call something on the Wings.

Man whens the last time a point shot went in?


2011 when Lidstrom shot it.

Sheahan is better than Andersson.

Glendening is especially feisty tonight.

Jimmy is great. Of course O'Halloran didn't see the blatant goaltender interference.


#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.


#2473516 1/16 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Rangers 1

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.
