#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.

I can't believe Kindl, Bertuzzi and Cleary are seriously all on a powerplay unit together.

That about sums up the mediocrity level we've seen.

Tootoo was a great signing.

The refs still stink.

#2347908 1/27 Red Wings 1 @ Chicago Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 January 2013 - 09:46 PM

Ugh, man I hate the Blackhawks.

Outcome was largely decided going 0-6 on the PP against a tired team. The Red Wings played well in the third, but to score only one goal is disappointing with that many opportunities.

The defense is improving each game at least. That's certainly a positive with no Nick and a ton of injuries. It all comes down to whether the offense can get going now, especially on the powerplay. Has anyone from the third or fourth lines scored yet? They provide solid energy, but chipping in with some goals would be a huge boost to Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Pittsburgh is allowed to do that...

When was the last time the Wings played a full 60 minutes?

I'm just curious, but what or who would you call a consistent playoff performer?  First of all, as Wings fans, we're spoiled because we make the playoffs every year.  Has Datsyuk or Zetterberg been a "consistent" playoff performer?  Yzerman?  Fedorov?  Each of them has had good playoff years and not so good.  Just having a hard time figuring out what your criteria is?  What would be a large sample size to you? 

 

Zetterberg without question. He has probably been the best playoff performer in the league since the lockout along with Briere.

Franzen has three seasons of spectacular playoffs and two years of nothing running. I'm not sure that qualifies as a long history of scoring, at least not consistently.


#2347067 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Best game of the season outside the parade to the penalty box and not a very strong first. Helm being back does wonders for the third line and splitting up Z and Datsyuk spreads out the talent in the top-six much more.

Bertuzzi looked like he had some very fresh legs for his first game. He creates a lot of space for Datsyuk to work his magic. Filppula was also very noticeable tonight. Huskins and Lashoff stood out to me on defense.

Nice team win. Gonna be a tough challenge on Sunday.

One way or another, Cleary needs to go.  I guess retirement is fine.  I won't sugar coat it, if****** hate Dan Cleary.


That's fine. Cheering for him to be injured is stupid. He has a wife and daughter. They are hockey players to us, but a lot more to other people.

Cheering injuries is really pathetic. I don't care how bad you think a player is. He's a human being.
