#2543657 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

If this team could just get a goal-scorer in the offseason this decade maybe this team would have a chance to get out of a 2-0 whole. 




#2543460 Rating the Defense through 6 games

Posted by themcityblues on 22 October 2014 - 07:50 PM

I think the defense has been stellar.

 

1. D.D - I agree he's very consistent in his own zone. He's responsible, a big body, heavy on the puck, moves the puck well, and has high hockey IQ. He's so dependable in many ways which is why I list him as the Wings best D-man.

 

2. B. Smith - He's constantly improving his play in his own zone. Paired with his offensive gifts he's growing into a critically important piece of this team. I feel Smith has potential to get even better. I would like to see him put up more points and convert more opportunities into goals.

 

3 KFQ - He looked dumb last night, but so far a solid year for the whipping boy. I'm quite surprised. If he continues to be responsible in his own zone his durability and dependability becomes a huge asset. He's playing with heart lately which is a bit unusual for him.

 

4. Kronwall - Ever since Nick left he hasn't been as responsible with the puck in his own zone. He's so gifted athletically and is dangerous offensively such that he probably deserves to wear the "A" anyway. But how good of a year has it been for him compared to years past? Not stellar. I didn't think he was great last year, either.

 

5. Ericsson - His tree-root legs have been noticeable. If he's hesitant to use his body and afraid to take guys out of the play then his value really diminishes. I wonder if he is afraid to let loose because it's not "Red Wings"-style hockey. Is he being warned by the staff about instigating fights, igniting emotions and taking penalties? Why else is he not using his body like he used to? I put him #5 because I still see him cancel guys out in his own zone.

 

6. Kindl - He just doesn't seem to add much value. I guess, at times, he's looked good skating and moving the puck. He is a turnover machine and he seems to lack confidence to play in the NHL. I'm surprised he still gets opportunities. I think he's improving... slowly

I thought Weiss was slightly worse than pretty much any forward out on the ice. Ouch.

Nestrasil is the #1 doctor recommended NSAID nasal spray on the market.

Brunner turning down that 3 year offer from Detroit was a huge mistake. He valued quick cash over development. He wasn't ready for 2nd-line minutes anywhere, and he should have checked his ego.

Kindl and Lashoff looked absolutely terrible. It's last year all over again -- awful defensive zone turnovers one after the other. Weiss looks to be returning to form (invisible).

Petr with the shut out!!!!


Ok now how much TOI did Dan the Man get?

I thought he'd get a lot more than he did.

 

Looks around 12 minutes. He was quite invisible.

We gotta go 80% in October because we'll go 20% against the bottom 10% of the league.
