#2355270 Dan Cleary appreciation thread

Posted by GoWings1905 on 13 February 2013 - 10:20 PM

Cleary has been awful, but isn't every post in the GDT about him enough? Seems redundant to just keep piling on.

The roller coaster continues. Only saw the third and OT, but hard to comprehend from that why the Red Wings looked so flat.

Special teams are a disaster. Need the PP to get a goal in the third with those chances when you aren't on your game otherwise.

Disappointing outcome against a rookie goalie. Did they even break 20 SOG?

Not sure but I don't think no SOG in 18 minutes is the best strategy to beat a rookie goalie.


#2353471 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

Do people spend the entire game in the bathroom or something?
 
:tounge:


The wait is about that long.


#2353450 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

I'm not entirely opposed to the Red Wings staying at JLA as I enjoy going there, but in all honesty it's quite inadequate as a sporting venue. Besides the sight lines and memories in the building, there aren't many other redeeming qualities.

I go to sporting events for the product itself, though the total package is nice considering the cost to attend. The Joe is a dump inside. The lack of restrooms, crowded and unappealing concourse, uncomfortable seats for us tall humans and there's nothing around the arena either. Everyone walks out through the same exit, so it takes 15 minutes to even get out of there after the game.

As has been mentioned, the area around Comerica Park, Ford Field and the Fox Theatre is better developed. Building a new arena there makes a lot of sense.

I agree with the throwaway premise of society and generally these new venues come at some cost to the taxpayers as well. I don't think moving for the sake of it is desirable. However, in this case, the Red Wings genuinely need a new arena to play their home games.

So much for that flow.

One period was nice at least.

Maybe CPrice can come here again and tell us what a lovely fella Backes is.

If the bottom-six isn't scoring, shouldn't they at least be effective as penalty killers considering it's their primary role with so many calls? No energy, no offense, terrible at special teams.

This team has four useful forwards right now. Everyone else is a passenger and/or very bad.

Zetterberg and Brunner once again the only two noticeable players (for the right reasons) that period.

The NHL is laughable. Does anyone enjoy these special teams contest or does Bettman claim they are good for the league like shootouts?

How can Nyquist and his skill still be in the minors when Bertuzzi and Cleary are here in prominent roles? That's inexcusable. There's a spot for Nyquist playing top-six minutes if they cut the dead weight out.


#2350423 Emmerton

Posted by GoWings1905 on 02 February 2013 - 01:53 PM

Emmerton has been basically what I expected. A marginal skill player in a bottom-six role that doesn't provide much of anything. He's a decent skater and can be used on the PK, but beyond that he's filler until Helm is healthy. I would prefer a 4th line center that hits, forechecks and is physical instead. Abdelkader does all of those things more effectively at wing.

Henrik Zetterberg's determination is unmatched. What an effort to carry this team to a huge win.

The captaincy is in great hands.
