#2391925 Regular Season Record Predictions!

Posted by VM1138 on 29 April 2013 - 11:52 PM

It's scary how close some of you guys were.

#2391898 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by VM1138 on 29 April 2013 - 10:44 PM

In my best Bane voice: Let the games begin!

#2390544 4/27 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Stars 0

Posted by VM1138 on 27 April 2013 - 11:23 AM

On paper, this should be an easy win.



This is why I'm terrified.

#2390496 one of my favourite seasons

I hated this season until the last week. There are some bright points but it wasn't fun watching them put zero effort in 50% of the time. I hope they win tonight so we can say this season was at least a partial success.

Gotta think Minnesota grows a pair and wins their last game after that 6-1 debacle. Columbus will likely win.

So...Detroit. Must. Win. Play your biggest game of the season tonight. 22 years of pride, history and success are riding on it.

#2390248 Report Card

Posted by VM1138 on 26 April 2013 - 06:06 PM

I don't agree with giving Abdelkader an A.  As Doan so eloquently put it: "How do you have only 11 points playing with Datsyuk?"  He's doing good things without the puck, and I get why he's on Datsyuk's wing now, but the guy should have more points just accidentally from playing with Datsyuk.  He's just not an all-around good player. He's just a poor man's Holmstrom.

Also, throw it when the players are at the opposite end of the ice.

#2390096 Jackets vs Stars

Posted by VM1138 on 26 April 2013 - 07:59 AM

Just their luck to play like they have and still effectively have to play a game 7. I don't think we can count on Minny losing twice, so Columbus needs to lose.

#2389508 2013 Season in Review (46 Games in)

Posted by VM1138 on 25 April 2013 - 05:23 PM

I think with a full season we wouldn't be worrying about playoffs. We sometimes dipbdown to the average range for a few weeks. With another 35 games or so the Wings could've climbed right back up to the top.

So my season review is: the lockout sucked.

#2387684 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by VM1138 on 22 April 2013 - 11:25 AM

This team could win a series against any of the western teams except for maybe Chicago. Minny and Columbus scare me only because of their Cinderella stories, but really even they don't scare me much.

#2387393 Which things from the past (not just Wings related) do you miss most?

Posted by VM1138 on 21 April 2013 - 12:47 PM

I really miss quality teams.  I don't mind parity.  But I'd rather have a smaller league with stacked teams than a larger league with mediocre teams. It's too watered down. I don't like the 2 stars, 18 average ratio the league uses now.

#2386849 Bruins/Pens game tonight postponed

Posted by VM1138 on 20 April 2013 - 07:23 AM

The suspect was shot and wounded.  He escaped and was a block outside their perimeter.


And it's a lot easier to hide in a big city than you think.  Not to mention, he only fled authorities for what, 28 hours?  Barely a day.  They knew where he was, but short of firebombing the area, you don't take unnecessary risks with your personnel.  As long as they had him cornered, so to speak, they had time.

#2385284 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by VM1138 on 16 April 2013 - 08:17 AM

I agree he should take it easy, until the last few games.


If it looks like we could make a push for the playoffs, you get him in there to get a game or two under his belt before the playoffs.  I'd rather his first game back not be a Game 1 or 2.

#2385084 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by VM1138 on 15 April 2013 - 01:19 PM

Bertuzzi is an important piece of this team, even if he doesn't score all the time.  Our time of puck possession will increase the moment he steps on the ice.

#2384972 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Posted by VM1138 on 14 April 2013 - 11:15 PM

Lots of positives tonight:

Cola, Dekeyser and Kindl were fantastic. Nyquist and Brunner worked great together even if they didn't score, they got the puck near the net often.

But biggest takeaway: the team hustled.

They have to keep playing like that from here on out. Haven't had a winning streak yet this season, it's about time to start one.
