#2372321 3/22 GDT: Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 1, Abs nets 1st career Hat Trick

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 March 2013 - 10:32 PM

I can't believe what I'm seeing from our resident scrub.

 

What next?  Franzen will willingly drop the gloves and beat the s*** out of Getzlaf?

I wish we'd goon it up here a little.  

 

Tootoo, Smith, Ericsson and Abby can all drop the gloves.  Entertain the fans for Christ's sake.

If glass was a living object, it'd be dead by now.  

 

Our shooters couldn't hit water from a boat.  



My 4 year old leans on his stick harder than Franzen, so frustrating to watch a big dude play like that.

 

Hate it when Mickey talks about how Franzen could be a 40 goal scorer?  

 

Yeah, and I can be Kate Upton's boyfriend.

What is an overpayment anymore?  

 

 

Kyle+Quincey+Colorado+Avalanche+v+Detroi




#2370932 Perry Re-signs w/ Ducks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 March 2013 - 09:59 PM

Lets all jump on the Clarkson wagon! He played with Kindl for a season in Kitchener, maybe Jakub can put a good word in!!?!?

 

How about Stamkos for Franzen, Filppula, Quincey and a pick?  




#2370922 Kostitsyn Gives Up - Goes for Line Change

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 March 2013 - 09:39 PM

Incredibly lazy and selfish decision. I can hear Don Cherry now.

 

He'll talk about that Saturday night no doubt.

 

Then, he'll show a video about some Canadian junior player fighting, and give us a spirited promotion of Canada's mighty military.  




#2370062 Quincey out tonight vs. Nucks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 16 March 2013 - 07:19 PM

Oh no.  Who will score points from the blueline now?

 

Huskins has given us exactly what this guy has.  A defensive defenseman who doesn't score.  I wish he was playing instead.

#2369571 Soccer!

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 March 2013 - 09:37 PM

Such a shame. We were so close. Congrats to Bayern anyway.
 You will have a tough time with Juventus I feel. What are your thoughts on that draw?

 

It's just like Arsenal to have their best game and win of the season, and have it not matter.     :tounge:




#2368615 3/13 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Flames 5

Maybe Tootoo should be in????

 

Nah.

 

He's exceeded his fight quota for this team.  




#2368371 We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 March 2013 - 12:16 PM

2006:  Edmonton gets to the finals as a #8 seed.
2010:  #7 and #8 Philly/Montreal made the ECF.
2012:  #8 (underacheiving) LA wins the cup by BOWLING through seeds 1, 2, and 3.  
 
 
What if fans stopped believing?
 
History will be made.

 
For the millionth time, those teams had a makeup totally different than ours, and played a different style of hockey.  
 
We won't outwork anybody in a 7 game series.  That's not what our strength is.   


#2368155 Babs: " ....the players decide who plays, not me...."

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 March 2013 - 08:03 PM

Come on Babs -- Justin Abdelkader would be in the press box every night if this were true.

 

It amazes me that anyone thinks he's somehow useful.  We could find a grinder out of the minors that could put up similar numbers and play just as hard on the forecheck.

 

If he's waived, this team will lose nothing, even if he's picked up.  



Some people here are having trouble with the distinction between 'who plays' and 'on which line one plays.' Babcock said the former, not the latter.

 

Put down the pitchforks.

 

Insignificant distinction.

 

If he's talking about rewarding players by putting them in the lineup, the same should go for where they play in the lineup.  Guys like Cleary, Abdelkader and Quincey have been rewarded with icetime they didn't deserve.   



That statement is as true as you think Babs statement is.

I think Babs focuses on defense more than anything else. Players are on a short leash when it comes to defensive mistakes (White, Tatar) and a long leash when it comes to offensive production. You can be without puck luck when it comes to scoring, but there isn't any puck luck for being soft on your stick or missing coverage.

 

Your second line should not be a primarily defensive (checking) line.  That's what it was for about 6 or 7 games.    




#2367937 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Good move Kenny.

 

This will give Tatar time to overripe.   :clap:
