#2386898 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by F.Michael on 20 April 2013 - 03:12 PM

I'll be in Paris when the last few games are played.  I honestly think we'll need to win the last 3 of 4 to get in.  

In which "Gentlemen's" did you meet her in :lol:


On a serious note - have fun, take lots of pictures, and can ya bring back 1 of them lil'replicas of that big metal pointy thing for me?

Jimmy's allowed to have a s***ty game.  Some of our players have had a s***ty entire (half) season.  Blaming Jimmy?  Really?  This board...sometimes I feel like I'm being trolled hard.  I'm just gonna...go over here...




Your franchise goalie is absolutely not allowed to have a s***ty game when the playoffs are on the line. That's why he is your franchise goalie and why you pay him what you do.

Take note Jimmy Howard, this is what stealing a game looks like

We don't have enough skill on the top lines because we have the Best GM in the league.  NHL.com said so.

When Zetterberg scores a shootout goal, you know that things are screwy...

Would've been funnier if he did it to Grant Clitsome.

#2382674 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 10 April 2013 - 08:22 AM

Why do people think that being a fan and being critical are mutually exclusive concepts?


If those who didn't get angry when the team plays like s*** didn't care about the team, they wouldn't get angry.

Im just excited about Dekeyser. He played fantastic today and was out in high pressure situations. If babs trusts him during those times you know you have a great defensman.
With Dekeyser, Smith, Kindl and Lashoff getting better we will have a great defense in front of jimmy in the very near future.

I still think we will make the playoffs by the skin of our teeth, but Kenny has really got to get us a scoring winger and a bonifide #1 D

for next season. Plenty of effort tonight but we just dropped a place in the standings and teams around us have games in hand. We

need a least 5 wins from our remaining games to make the post season.


He made some phone calls and was totally blown away when he found out that you can't get a scoring winger or top defenseman if you're completely unwilling to move a first round pick or any of your top prospects.  Who knew you couldn't get Jason Pominville for Landon Ferraro and a conditional 4th rounder?

Ryan Clowe would have been nice in a game like this.

realizing hockey isn't business anymore. Thats why you have a player like cleary playing over tatar. Play thy best yet we won't

Time to send Nyquist to the minors to join Tatar.  


He's playing far too well to stay up on this team.    

"We just wanted to see what he could do.  Nyquist has got some good talent, but we've decided to let him blossom a little bit in the minors.  We're going to give XX a shot, but he'll be back."

#2380771 Nyquist thoughts

Posted by Dabura on 05 April 2013 - 01:09 PM

Saying Nyquist isn't really NHL-ready is silly.


I think the big problem is...well I'll show you (since I love doing this so much):









All of our high-end players are subtle variations on the same damn player. Practically our entire top six corps - I mean the guys who really do deserve to be in the pool (and I do count Nyquist among them) - is softish, smallish, Euro playmakers.


I think of Selanne. Is he really that good (and indeed, maye he is)...or does he benefit a whole lot from having a pack of bulldogs around him, creating space for him, wearing down the opposition for him? I feel Nyquist would do well in a similar situation.


So, what I'm saying is: NHL-ready, and potentially lethal...just not in Motown. Maybe.


We'll see. (Or we won't.)

What would be awesome is having a fourt line with just fighters. Put em out every start of a period against the top line. No head hunting just push em around a bit.
Or even after the team scores...we'll be the Detroit 'dread you'll see Red' Wings.
