#2599775 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by VM1138 on 23 April 2015 - 09:15 PM

Mike Babcock does not believe in momentum :D

Well the team does. Like others said, they're not mentally tough yet. A team scores against them and the floodgates open. Do you think they'd react any differently to a team catching up to them in a series?

The series is tied.
Its nowhere near over boys and girls. Let's all have some faith, if it doesn't work, then we all have plenty of time to bitxh and moan.

I admire your optimism, but this game was the Wings at their best. They haven't played a better game. And they lost. Now Tampa, just an hour ago a shaken team, has all the confidence and momentum going home, where they have the best record. And they are no longer doubting themselves. This was the high water mark of the Wings season.

I hate Chicago,Just stab the into our hearts :censored:  :devil:  :ranting:  :furious:  :boxing:  :veryangry:

Chicago must be the greatest team in history. They don't have to be all that good but they just win when they need to somehow. Sigh. That used to be us.

#2596792 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by VM1138 on 20 April 2015 - 08:53 AM

Marchenko really looked lost last game.  No harm no foul bringing Smith back in.  We've got to do something to wake our team up, and sticking with the same old thing isn't going to hack it. 


I sure hope Brendan's ready.  We need mistake free hockey. 


There's a lot of harm bringing Smith back in, potentially.  Turnovers are already a problem.  And his pinching could really hurt us.  I would rather they had called up Oullette.

The only physical edge Smith gives us is poorly timed penalties for lashing out in frustration.

If anyone can make sure McDavid never becomes a star, it's Edmonton.

Good thing Bishop isn't great, and neither is their defense. I don't think offense will be a problem for us. Keeping leads will be.

Don't get too pissed at the Wings for this. It's getting late in a one goal game. Of course the refs will keep calling penalties against the winning team.

DeKeyser and Marchenko are having great games. As are Mrazek and Datsyuk. Everyone else looks like they don't even care.

#2593126 Why so negative?

Posted by VM1138 on 14 April 2015 - 09:15 AM

I hope for the best, but weren't we one of the worst teams in the league in even strength scoring? That could be a problem.

#2592884 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by VM1138 on 13 April 2015 - 12:12 PM

Man, we talked about this but now that it's happened in real life, Babcock must have lost all faith in Howard. He's basically trying to replace him with a rookie.

Ferraro being in. Is a wasted roster spot though.

#2592288 Team next season?

Posted by VM1138 on 11 April 2015 - 03:49 PM

I think it really is just that Weiss is a turnover liability. Weiss works hard, he just isn't defensively sound and we all know that that is Babcock's first priority, even over scoring.

This is the first time I can remember that I'm not optimistic about the playoffs. I just don't see us making it out of the first round this time. I hope I'm wrong.

I'd like to see Marchenko brought up for the playoffs. Gotta get playoff experience sometime. And only him and Pulkinnen will be new to the whole playoff thing so it shouldn't be too risky to give him a chance.

Why. The. Hell. Is Smith. On the ice.  With Minutes. To Go.
