Franzen on the 4th line in an elimination game.

Boy that first rounder for Quincey is looking brilliant.

Win for Nick. Win for Helm. Win for Stuart. I don't care what the motivator is but just please win and keep the season alive. Take the first period with a lead and go from there.

After Game 4, I thought Nashville would end it tonight. Maybe I'm in denial, but after a couple days away I'm feeling good about the Red Wings chances in Game 5. There's
too much pride and ability in that locker room to just quit.

Regardless of what happens, I will be proud to be a fan of this team. Though I would love to cheer them on again this Sunday at the Joe especially.

Let's Go Red Wings!

I love watching Chicago tie it late only to lose in overtime.

If the Red Wings go out, I want the Penguins and Blackhawks right there with them.


#2292863 Trade Zets /Dats and Franzen

Franzen, absolutely if anyone will take that contract. Pavel and Z no way. Those two are the only forwards that have done anything in this series.

The Red Wings have ample cap space and a solid foundation. It's up to Holland to make the necessary moves this summer to address the shortcomings.

Still a hell of a lot better than Franzen is now.


Yes, indeed. Worst mistake Holland has made.

Well, it might be second now after standing pat for three seasons while Nick Lidstrom's career winds down.


#2291910 Will Detroit win this series?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 18 April 2012 - 12:15 AM

I would love to convince myself otherwise, but I think Nashville ends it on Friday. I'm mostly going to just try and appreciate watching Nick Lidstrom for maybe the last time ever.

Franzen needs to step up or I wouldn't care if it's his last game in a Red Wings uniform too.

So glad we have that clutch playoff goal scorer in Franzen locked up for another decade.

The Predators are better. I didn't want to believe it, but my head told me it all along.

The Red Wings are stale and have been for years. Holland sat on his hands and now Nick Lidstrom just played his final home game because of it.

We're immature for laughing at Bertuzzi's stunt, but this clown comes here and says "enjoy your thriving economy".

Go back to the Preds board. I'm sure all 12 people there will like your act more.

Were they using Trotz's head as the ball?

Nice work Bert. Now go take the series back tomorrow.


#2288773 Dan Cleary openly admits to being at 50%

Where was he game 3?


Where was any forward not named Datsyuk and Zetterberg? Cleary has been just fine in a third line role.

I know the start on time theme has been discussed frequently and rightfully so. While I would be thrilled with a full 60 minute effort, I also believe the Red Wings lack of engagement in games is due to the officiating so far. Game 1 was a disaster and today the Red Wings were killing penalties most of the first and half of the second including the 5-on-3. Once the refs laid off, the Red Wings took over the game but by then the hole was already 2-0.

The more even strength play this series sees, the more it swings in Detroit's favor. The PK has been really good, but on the ice too much and it disrupts any momentum.

I hate to blame it on the refs because Nashville came out more ready to play, but having so much time on the powerplay certainly enhanced their ability to establish a lead.

Shocking Nothing But Cleary hasn't returned to the thread.

Cleary has been very strong the first two games. Killing penalties, skating better, going into the tough areas and winning battles, playing physical. Everything that has made and continues to make Cleary a valuable piece of the Red Wings.

Cleary always ramps it up for the playoffs, even more impressive on one knee this run. Cleary is a warrior and plays his heart out every shift. If you are going to rip him non-stop, at least have the courage to come back and give him praise when it is deserved.


#2283396 Chants From The Joe At Game 3?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 April 2012 - 10:47 AM

Nice call.

I personally plan on cheering as loud and as much as possible on Sunday at the Joe whether it is 2-0 or 1-1. Did you miss last season when the Wings were down to the Sharks? That building was electric in Games 4 and 6.

It's the playoffs. The Red Wings deserve our support and thankfully I don't think any of the 20,066 on Sunday will follow your advice.
