#2543436 Rating the Defense through 6 games

Posted by frankgrimes on Yesterday, 04:25 PM

It's been only 6 games, but during the off/preseason fans on LGW were bemoaning how bad our defense was.

Well I think it has been pretty good. Of course, it helps that our goal tending has been great and many of our forwards are playing good defense, making it easier on the defensemen... but here is how I rank our defensemen's play thus far:

1. B.Smith - he has been awesome on both ends

2. DD - most consistent in the D-zone

3. Kronner - solid, with some turnovers

4. Q - has played pretty fricking good and is competing

5. Glendening - has played better D that the last two

6 (tie) - Kindl/Ericsson - flashes of good play, followed by some head scratchers. I think Kindl has actually out-played Ericsson

 

1. B. Smith he looks much stronger and has been awesome

2. DD - way to go Danny our most reliable defender guy is just a machine

3. Kronwall - solid start so far.

4. Glendening - plays solid D and is starting to get involved into the physical stuff too love it

5. Quincey - competes hard I like that

6. Kindl - better than I thought but only because of...

7. Ericcson - wow does this guy need to get his game together, slow breakout passes, give aways and looks a bit sluggish

I don't care who you are, that is a very bad call by the refs. another game taken away from us, wings are 3-0-1 without the refs killing us late in games this year, 3-1-2 with...

Come out to PA I'll have a few drams with you. :). The main roof will be done tomorrow. They just have to put the caps on the joints and the rakes on the sides, flash the chimney, and put the boot on the vent. (Metal roof on purlins over a shingle roof).

It's been a great week. The sweep of the Leafs Friday and Sat, my students getting the best honors chorus results of my 20 year career on Sunday (11 of 12 made districts, all should be able to advance to regions, and 6 are legit all-state threats), Wings looking good so far tonight... I'll take it.

#2541587 Weiss

Posted by kipwinger on 16 October 2014 - 06:19 PM

I'm sure he thought after last season he would be on the opening night roster. He didn't get that benefit of the doubt from Babs. That's what lights fires. Not: it wasn't my fault, I was injured.

 

Darren Helm missed a year and a half with injuries and wasn't a healthy scratch once he was healthy.  There's not to be more to it than this.

A few fights last night from non-enforcers. These are the types of fights I like- two players are settling a disagreement themselves.

The most shocking thing is that we have played half a game and Marchand hasn't acted like an ass yet.

Lucic hasn't clubbed anyones nuts either yet. Just give them time, it will happen.

 

Goal ?

Tired of Franzen carrying this team. He deserves a few nights off.
