#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.

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.

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.

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:

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"?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 February 2013 - 09:26 PM

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.
