Good for Dom. Great to see he still has it.

Your avatar creeps me out everytime I see it. Those have to be 2 of the ugliest f***ers the league has ever seen!

#1917634 Red Wings GM Ken Holland hasn't given up on wandering Jiri Hudler

Posted by The Secret on 17 March 2010 - 01:30 PM

I don't miss him personally, but his points would have been nice this year.

For what Huds is locked up on, I'd rather see that money spent on a Free Agent that actually wants to play for the Detroit Red Wings.

I'm with you on this one... I'd rather have a player that wants to be in Detroit. the way he left cost us signing a player we could have used this year (...even if that player was Samuelsson) :D

I was just going to say, didn't some of the players have not nice things to say about Hudler after he left? I seem to remember Chelios saying he was a "weird little dude" or something along those lines...

He was a veird little dude... his Clucking thing he did for Osgood was creepy

i do think it was a hit deserving of a penalty but not a game misconduct or a suspension there has been far worse hits lately with no such action. I disagree with the refs today

His illegal hit from behind ended Campbell's season! Players must be held accountable for their actions and Ovechkin has had many dirty hits. Would everyone's opinion be different if he did the same thing to Kronwall or Stuart or would it remain the same because its Ovechkin?

I hope the little bastard comes back long enough for us to trade him!

#1913029 Questioning the Wings Leadership

Posted by The Secret on 10 March 2010 - 09:44 AM

This is a mediocre team. Mediocre D. Mediocre goaltending. Mediocre skill. Mediocre leadership. We should expect them to be around the middle of the pack, because they just aren't that good. This team isn't good enough to dominate its opponenents consistantly and it doesn't have the heart to do the little things that make mediocre teams into contenders. There was only one Jarome Iginla on the ice last night and he was on the other team. A goal and an assist when his team needed him most - leading by example, yelling from the bench, willing to do anything necesarry to get that win. The league doesn't have a surplus of Captains like that, and it sucks that all teams can't have one, but that's the way it goes.

Very nicely put Micah! Maybe this team has the pieces capable of making this a better team but the heart is not there most of the time... and inspired effort by one or 2 player now and then isn't going to cut it. I wish we could inject Helm's effort and work ethic into the rest of the team... then we'd see some change immediately

I'm putting most of my blame on Babcock, especially a loss like tonight. For all of his strong qualities, he is a downright AWFUL coach when it comes to holding a lead. Babcock has blown leads very frequently in Detroit, but the third period collapses this season especially are unacceptable when the team is so desperate for points.

Getting outshot 15-4 at home in the third is pathetic. Chicago dominated on Sunday too and we got lucky there the lead was big enough. Babcock's two biggest flaws are becoming more glaring this season: he can't coach with a lead and he mishandles goalies.

How the hell does Babcock hold a lead from the bench? In the end the players are on the ice and have to do the work. Babcock got raving reviews from the Canadian players from the Olympics and the coaching staff and everyone else... there is only so much he can do. One thing he can't is play for the players... they have to want to do what he says. Also, how is he mishandling the goalies? We are starved for points and he is playing the goalie that is playing the best... The End! He doesn't have the wiggle room to throw Osgood in to lose games until he can find his way out of his slump and play better. Howard is playing better then Osgood (which isn't saying much) and so he gets the starts... neither goalie is playing great but Howard is playing better then Osgood.

I make up of this team is quite different them what we have become accustomed too especially with the number and quality of the players that left and add to that the number of injuries we have had to contend with. We cannot play the puck possession style as well as we have in the past and we need more players willing to play some old time hockey and muck hard in the corners, drive strong to the net, shoot the puck with some effort behind the shot, block pucks and fight hard to win the individual battles.... this won't happen with a Euro-filled team. Hopefully we can get some better balance this off season and find some players to fit the bill capable of playing both puck possession if its working and also good old fashioned hockey of its not. Having mediocre goalies on this mediocre team is exposing them as a serious hole also... more then ever with the lack of fire power to hide them under.
