Cleary - public intoxication.......................can never stand upright without falling. 




#2362655 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Kings 2

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 February 2013 - 12:10 PM

everyone is entitled to their opinion, but were you watching the same game? The one where the wings dominated the whole time... The only reason it seemed as though the kings were better the second half was because they had 3 5 on 3's, but other then that the wings dominated. Even the NBC announcers thought so, as well as Mick and Ken. Simple fact is the kings took advantage of their chances in the third things didn't. we had a couple iffy calls against us, but the kings definitely got away with murder in that game.

 

We dominated the first.  The Kings had better even strength chances the rest of the game, I thought.  I didn't see much pressure on Bernier even when LA wasn't on the powerplay.      

 

Of course, the powerplay is where they ultimately won the game, so that cost us.   




#2361652 Red Wings to be in an Eastern conference in latest NHL/NHLPA proposal

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 February 2013 - 05:10 PM

No money there. Portland and Seattle = $$$.

 
Seattle is about to welcome their NBA team back.  I can't remember any city getting NBA and NHL teams in a short period of time.  They have to make sure the NBA can work there again first.
 
Portland is a maybe as well.  

Doesn't having 7 and 8 team divisons sound like a step backwards? This is like the 1950's when Baseball had 8 team American and National Leagues.
 
Just wait for the outcry when there's teams that miss the playoffs in one division with better records over teams with worse records in weaker divisions. I still don't understand what's wrong with the current set up. I'm not a fan of 16 teams making the playoffs, but at least with 3 division in each conference you get the 8 best teams in each conference making the playoffs. The only downside is the 3rd seed may have less points then teams seeded 4-8, but it's not that big of a deal.

 
You still have 9 seeds missing the playoffs with better records than a 7 seed in the other Conference.  That argument will always exist, until you get rid of the conference system altogether, and reseed everyone once the playoffs begin.  
 
Because of travel issues, that will unlikely happen.  I wouldn't mind seeing a 2-3-2 format, which can eliminate those travel concerns, though.  


#2361458 Gus Nyquist...

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 February 2013 - 12:01 PM

Exactly..I would rather have Tatar and Andersson up right now, they have played their roles..Nyquist has not fit into any of the roles they have tried to put him in so far.

 

Nyquist should be playing on Pavel's wing.  If he can't fit into that role on the top 6, then we should trade him for a bag of beans.  

 

Instead, Cleary and Abdelkader are both playing on that line.  Two similar players who shouldn't be getting that icetime.  




#2360872 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

So much European scoring. I have a feeling our xenophobic posters aren't going to enjoy our win too much.

 

Tootoo's toughness is rubbing off on them, like Downey in 2008.  




#2360241 Move Over Winter Classic

Bump from several months ago.  I had totally forgotten about this game, until I suddenly remembered it again today.   :lol:   

 

Anyway, it was played last September over two nights.  So I went online and found some pictures to share.

#2359859 2/23 GDT : Nashville Predators 0 at Red Wings 4

Why does Babcock still have two handicapped children playing on Datsyuk's line?   




#2359697 Mursak on waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 February 2013 - 12:26 PM

Shows you how overvalued our jobbers are around here.  

 

Several posters couldn't possibly fathom how he would clear waivers.    :sleepy:  




#2359604 Anisimov Leaves Hospital

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 February 2013 - 09:20 PM

LOL.

 

He'll likely play before Quincey will.  




#2359472 Anyone ever used a 2-3 system before?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 February 2013 - 02:07 PM

Next time we go up 2 goals, we should go into the 1-4 formation.

 

"Park the bus" as they say in soccer.  




#2359389 Babcock

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 February 2013 - 11:40 AM

A nice thing about this organization is that the coach will not be scapegoated.

 

Another nice thing is that our prospects are overripe in the minors, while crappier players take up their roster spots in the main lineup.  

 

Don't know if that's on Babcock or Holland, but some accountability has to go somewhere.  




#2359184 How much of the current trouble is attributable to injuries?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 February 2013 - 10:56 PM

If not for injuries, we'd finish as a 5-8 seed and lose in the first round.

 

Thanks to these injuries, we're unlikely to make the playoffs if the injury bug keeps up.   




#2359114 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 February 2013 - 10:23 PM

I disagree, but coming from someone who has never played goalie, I understand your stance.

 

Huh?

 

You didn't know I'm Manny Legace?  




#2359110 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 February 2013 - 10:23 PM

Wings nation is now in panic mode.  I really am glad that the GM and ownership aren't as reactionary as the LGW Forum members.

 

We all knew that the Wings weren't going to be a perennial power in the league this year.  Realistically, the Wings were going to be a 5th or 6th place team in the Western Conference.  With all the injuries, the Wings are going to be lucky to make the playoffs.  Then you factor in there the Wings sloppy turnovers and sloppy play, and its a self fulfilling prophecy.

 

It's hard to blame injuries when you lose at home to a s***ty team like Columbus.  They don't have a Datsyuk or Zetterberg on their team.  

 

Wings should have won this game handily.
