#2360241 Move Over Winter Classic

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 February 2013 - 01:21 PM

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?

Shows you how overvalued our jobbers are around here.  

 

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

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

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.

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

 

Huh?

 

You didn't know I'm Manny Legace?

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.

Many years from now, we'll look back on this team and joke about how bad they were.

 

 

"Hey remember that season when we had Dan Cleary and Brian Lashoff playing the powerplay"?

I'd rather lose Kronwall than Quincey.

 

Huh?

 

He's the only defenseman who's scoring for us.  Quincey is scoring about as often as the Pope right now.

Quincey is not a big loss.  

 

Smith will be back and Kindl will just be plugged back into the lineup in the meantime.  




#2358428 Pavel Datsyuk dangles the entire Predators team!

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 February 2013 - 05:51 PM

Datsyuk has probably been dangling our crappy defense in practice all season.  

 

His stick handling is only bound to get even better going up against White, Quincey and Kronwall every day.   




#2358405 Cody McCormick waived by Sabres

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 February 2013 - 05:09 PM

I am talking about Scott, because I have a hard time thinking of reasons why the Bruins would waive or trade Lucic for anything short of a huge overpayment?

 

Felt pissed when we had to chance to sign a guy like McGrattan or Scott and just refused to do so. The thing with McGrattan is, he is getting missused by Trotz this guy is dead serious whenever he fights pissed and an absolutely giants, usually guys like this should be in the lineup against every tougher team in the league.

 

Point being IF Trotz decides to dress him against us, we have no one to answer the bell Tootoo would absolutely get destroyed by him.

 

That's true.  A team like Montreal would be the smartest to get a guy like McGrattan, because teams like Toronto and Boston in their own division are loaded with tough guys, and frequently bully Montreal.

 

The Blues are the best example of a team in our division who's way more physical, dresses many tough guys and has frequently bullied our soft team over the years.  I'd love to have a McGrattan type player against them.

I would only want a guy who is primarily a heavyweight fighter to be able to win most of his fights against other heavyweight fighters.

He didn't appear to be much og a challenge for Lucic here. I love how Lucic picks him up after knocking him down the first time "this ain't over yet"

 

He's not a heavyweight fighter.  Neither is Lucic.
