#2232088 12/2 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Sabres 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 December 2011 - 08:28 PM

I'd trot out that Wings team we saw in that period in a heartbeat. Not many teams would stand a chance against what we just saw from Detroit.


Of course they wouldn't, but that's not how it works.

We've had hot regular seasons before, and even good winning streaks early last year.

I just don't understand how people expect this team to improve or make deadline deals, if we're not willing to trade anyone.

Filppula is the likeliest choice. No one will want Hudler or Ericsson. Him playing well is good for any deadline deals. Increases his value and our trading assets.

So many stubborn minded people around here living in denial. Like trying to reason with a door. <_<

If Filppula keeps playing like this, he may wind up the Flames #1 center by the end of the season.

Good for him. :thumbup:


Forget it GMR, people here don't like reality.

They think we can beat San Jose this time around and beat the Pens, without having to improve our team whatsoever at the deadline.

Just trot out the same lineup into the playoffs from the last two seasons. :rolleyes:

#2231791 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Wrong again.


Naturally.


#2231743 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

No reason to play him unless it's on the top 2 lines, with skilled teammates.

With his size, it'll be pointless playing him on the 3rd and 4th lines. You can only have so many undersized forwards trying to be checkers. Helm, Hudler and now possibly Conner.

#2231662 Ducks Fire Carlyle

I always liked Carlyle.

He played enforcers and he looked like "The Penguin" :hehe:


#2231354 11/30 GDT : Lightning 2 at Red Wings 4

I wish it was recorded what Bertuzzi said to get the penalty. Those two consecutive PP's really let Tampa back into this game.


Bertuzzi not only looks like Lurch, but he's just as stupid.

His untimely penalties at his age are just inexcusable.

Total bonehead.


#2231144 Best Goal Ever

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 November 2011 - 03:24 PM

As much as my jaw dropped when I saw that goal at the time, the final replay they show from behind the goalie shows just how sick that shot was.

Anyone that plays hockey knows how impossible that shot is.



Nothing is impossible in hockey.

#2230979 Wings are soft as hell.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 November 2011 - 09:11 PM

Last year's Bruins don't count?


They sure do.

And you can also count this year's Pens.

Lots of tough teams win the Cup nowadays.


#2230872 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 November 2011 - 02:39 PM

In 2008, when Aaron Downey was a Wing, Zetterberg scored 92 points in 75 games.

Since then, his goal scoring has gone down drastically. This year, he's scored only 13 points in 22 games.


Coincidence?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 November 2011 - 10:12 PM

why would either of those teams trade away their captains


Because who wouldn't want Filpulla/Hudler and Ericsson on their team?

Those guys are proven champions who played for the Red Wings.

You don't remember the "I have to play better" speech from 1997?

That was local legend for a bit after they won it that year.


If only Hossa gave such a speech in 2009
