#2670204 Andersson leaving the NHL after the Playoffs

Posted by themcityblues on 17 April 2016 - 06:50 PM

I've thought Andersson's been good. He always moves his legs, is a good PK-er, and has a responsible hockey sense. He'll never score any goals, but he's really a perfect 4th liner. He just never played with anybody good.

Anyone know what Smith was raising his hand for?

Maybe he thought he was on the bench and just wanted to stick his hand out? Little bit of an F-you to Babs? HAHA

#2626096 Zidlicky finds new home with Islanders

Posted by themcityblues on 20 September 2015 - 03:19 PM

I loved Zids and wished he come back, but now I can root for him on the Islanders, a team I am liking more and more

#2624780 So this is why teams hate the wings

Brad Stuart taking Perry down at 40 seconds. He made the Wings so dynamic 

#2604837 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Maybe the last time we see Babcock in Detroit. It was fun, but maybe its time for a new message. A stomping by the Bruins sandwiched by two heart breaking game 7 losses. Howard didn't play a single game; I wonder how he feels. Tampa was the better team. Detroit almost made their defense/system look invincible. I believe we will see Tampa beat Montreal and head to the Conference Finals against New York. I think Detroit needs a new coach, should trade Howard, and should find some offensive threats in the off-season. Zetterberg has declined substantially, and well, where is the offense going to come from next season? 


I'm proud of our boys. They went further than I thought they would. They won three more games than the star-studded 2002-03 Red Wings. That team had Federov, Hull, Shanahan, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Larionov, Holmstrom, Malty, Draper, Robitaille, McCarty, Chelios, Schneider and Yzerman, to drop a few names. There have been many game 7s in this franchise's past 15 years. Maybe all it takes is a little bit a push to get this team over the hump and back into Stanley Cup contention.


Never give up Wings! May we come out better next year, keep the streak going, and hey... maybe even make it out of the quarterfinals!


Good luck to Tampa and everybody else still in the playoffs.

Wings have dominated the first 10 minutes, IN Tampa Bay, in game SEVEN. That's huge. There was hardly any push from Tampa. Good sign.


Wings look calm, not rattled at all. They are taking their time with the D-outlet passes. They are connecting with the open D standing right where Mrazek is, like they've done all season long.


I like what I'm seeing.

#2601255 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

I want to pipe in and say that I think it's sad when people chant the negative stuff. I wouldn't even chant "Tampa Bay sucks!" I don't think they suck. I don't think any team or player in the NHL sucks. They are all competitors in a difficult league. I saw a post here that said "somebody should injure Tyler Johnson". I mean, really? When he scored the two goals and carried his team, I felt happy for him. Of course if the Wings lose, it would be major heart-ache, but that's not going to make me "hate" other players or teams. I just cheer, cheer, cheer for the Wings, and try to feel good for other teams and players when they have success. I would like to see Joe Louis Arena focus on positively impacting their team and let go of the silly "Bulls***", etc. chants. It's not going to happen, though, "the mass" just doesn't operate that way.

The crowd was great tonight


... but gosh were there a lot of empty seats.

#2598186 ECQF Game 3 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 3 - DET Leads series 2-1

Posted by themcityblues on 22 April 2015 - 01:06 AM

So for everybody who said Smith would choke the puck up and blow our lead, it didn't happen. What did happen is Smith contributed to offensive puck-position time with good skating, outlet passes and offensive pinches. Thatta boy Smithy!

Bring Abby, sit Weiss

Bring Cleary, sit Andersson

Bring Smith, sit Marchenko


Team looks a lot better, IMO

Only 7 pages? Wtf? I guess when this team wins, the trolls go away. And some people who do stay say stuff like, "Welp, atleast we won't get swept!" Lol, Red Wing fans?


Glendening was incredible. Great game from Helm.


Glendening, though... he may be the X-Factor.


Mrazek was awesome. I felt his aggressive goaltending was perfect. Cut off a lot of net from the puck-moving Bolts. Great game all around. 


If Wings win game 2, Tampa's say "Ruh roh!"

#2593594 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

His reaction was hilarious. He didn't even think that was a penalty

Yeah, he looked like a dumb kid. Which... perhaps he is!

#2592706 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by themcityblues on 12 April 2015 - 04:42 PM

I think Ottawa is the perfect team to bury the Canadians. I predict that Montreal's dependency on Price will become evident, and that the pressure will mount and the team will collapse. 

#2592604 Anyone know the Red Wings all-time record at JLA?

Posted by themcityblues on 12 April 2015 - 01:35 AM

Don't know
