#2222454 11/3 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 09:16 PM

Wow.

Starting to wonder how long it'll be before they make a trade just to mix things up and send a message. What's nuts to me isn't so much that we're losing so much as that these games are all close and they're not playing that poorly. It's not as if there's this huge mess, but something isn't clicking. Given that we really don't have countless holes due to injuries like we did in the past when we'd have these losing streaks, you've got to wonder what's going on out there and in their heads. They look lost.

And again, the whole situation is just bizarre; it's too mundane to panic, yet there's blatantly something missing from this team. I don't know if it's chemistry or confidence or what, but they really need to turn it around fast. I don't buy the whole concern about being in playoff position in November or December even, but if they don't get it together fast and get a streak going in the other direction, we're going to have absolutely no wiggle room when our late-winter injury spell inevitably creeps up. I'd rather not be up against the wall with the team as is let alone a bunch of AHL fill ins.

As Mike Milbury would say, this is just Eurotrash hockey right here.

Well, look at the bright side. If the Wings continue their spiral down the toilet, maybe the bandwagon and fairweather fans will take a vacation from the forums and the games. That will result in better hockey talk among the real fans.


You mean you and Crymson?

Even Crymson thinks we're doomed right now.

If they don't score on this PP, then I'm switching off my GameCenter app.


Beavis & Butt-Head is on tonight.

No, I'm not talking about Franzen and Bertuzzi.

Can we at least goon it up here since we don't seem intent on winning?

Et tu, Kronwall?

The referees in pro wrestling are more authentic than this.

#2221859 Commodore to play tonight

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 11:31 AM

Maybe Stuart should take retribution.

Isn't he 6'2 and from Western Canada?


#2221732 This season is over!

The real culprit is bear man pig, ask al gore.


But seriously this is funny. That trade thread where someone said this team needs a trade and a bit of a shakeup got like negative 12 for starting that thread and this thread has positive 12.

The homerism on this board is hilarious sometimes. Teams sometimes need change believe it or not, basically the same team the last three years hasnt gotten it done, whats going to be different this year?


What does Tyler Kennedy have to do with this?


#2221731 This team screams for a trade

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 November 2011 - 08:33 PM

According to "CBC.ca : Elliot Friedman" Morrow COULD BE available.

I agree - 3rd/4th liners will not bring much at this point... IF a trade is to be made go for big trade.


Isn't Dallas playing well this season?

Why would they trade Morrow?


#2221729 Datsyuk & Zetterberg have been split up

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 November 2011 - 08:27 PM

Here's what I want to see.


Franzen - Zetterberg - Filppula
Hudler - Datsyuk - Brunnstrom
Cleary - Helm - Eaves
Ericsson - Abdelkader - Bertuzzi


Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Kindl - Commodore

This team can't make the playoffs without Kris Draper being on the roster.


#2221418 Season-Long Lines Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 November 2011 - 10:24 PM

Okay. Things must be shaken up:

Boll-Konopka-Boulton
Janssen-Dorsett-Carcillo
Prust-Gillies-MacIntyre
McGrattan-Orr-Parros
Shelley

Carkner-Scott
Stoner-Engelland
Erskine-Vandermeer

Send Dats and Z down to Grand Rapids, while they are mentored on how to play hockey by Mitchell Callahan. Toss Hudler off the face of the earth. If GMR can secretly knock out Paul Holmgren, convince Lilja to come back to Detroit, destroy his Flyers contract, find an old copy of his Wings contract, and change the dates on it, I'll consider Lilja as a 7th defenseman, since I have taken over for Holland indefinitely while he boards a plane out of Detroit, following 194,620 death threats in the past hour. Any and all requests for trades or free agent signings can be made via PM, although they likely won't be taken seriously. I have contacted Amway, dropped their sponsorship, and the Detroit Red Wings are now being sponsored by hockeyfights.com. Welcome to a brand new era of Detroit Red Wings excellence.

Sincerely,

Bring Back the Bruise Bros


I guarantee you that lineup would fill the JLA every night.

Probably fill every other arena also.
