#2255565 2/12 GDT : Flyers 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2012 - 07:57 PM

Is it just me, or is Engblom really blowing the Wings tonight?

I never knew he liked our team this much.


#2255252 The Abdelkader hate

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 February 2012 - 02:42 PM

As I've said before, I liked him better when he was first called up and tried to hit everything that moved. He's not a bad player for us, but we can get a better version of Abdelkader easily.

And I'm still upset about his 0 points in 11 playoff games last season and all the dumb penalties he took.

Bottom line for me, is that other than Helm, none of our 4th liners are guys I "absolutely" think we need to keep long term. If we keep Abby, so be it, and if not, we can replace him just fine.


#2254795 What Ken Holland should do at the deadline

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 February 2012 - 07:00 PM

Hudler: 54gp 17g 34pts 15:05 min/game 22.4%shooting 11 blks 33 hits 5'10" 186lbs $2,875,000 cap hit
Semin: 50gp 14g 33pts 16:45 min/game 13.5%shooting 12 blks 24 hits 6'2" 209lbs $6,700,000 cap hit

It speaks volumes about just how much is wrong with Semin right now that he's neck and neck with a midget getting 2nd/3rd line mins.

So is Semin scoring more than Hudler? No. Producing more in fewer mins? No. Shooting better? No. Hitting more? No. More talented? Yes. Signed next season? No.


Honestly it's arguable he'd even be more than a lateral move if we're comparing each player's output this season.

And Semin's playoff play? Yikes... 0g 2a in 7gp two years ago, 4g 2a in 9gp last year.

So basically you want to trade Hudler for a guy making more than anyone else on the Wings but producing less offence than Hudler. AND you want to throw tons of other s*** in the deal too like one of our top prospects (Tatar). From Washington's prespective they get guy who can produce as much as Semin in less ice time PLUS $3,825,000 in cap relief (noting that Washington has$0 in cap space right this season).

Holland would have to be a meth addict to make that trade.



lol


In all fairness, Zetterberg's numbers are crappy this year too. Same as Ovechkin. That doesn't mean those guys are worse than Filppula, who's putting up better stats per icetime.

So we'll finally have the toughness that so many posters here have been clamoring for.

:hehe:


#2254609 Red Wings hope Winter Classic can persuade Nicklas Lidstrom to return

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 February 2012 - 10:41 AM

I'm just glad he's not a Forsberg type guy, or else he'd come back and "just" play in that one game.

I'm starting to lean in him returning as well. But you never know.


#2254608 Will there be an impact trade by the wings?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 February 2012 - 10:39 AM

According to LeBrun, Garth Snow's saying he's not thinking of trading Nabokov.

Another target off the board apparently.


:unsure:

I didn't know that Lebron followed hockey.


#2254484 Scott Gomez has scored a goal

Video or it didn't happen.


#2254082 What the F has gotten into these wings?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 February 2012 - 10:28 PM

Maybe Babcock pulled a Reggie Dunlop on them.


#2254077 2/8 GDT: Oilers 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 February 2012 - 10:22 PM

Oh and ... fighting wins! :hehe:


Our fight count has doubled in the last week!

I'm grateful to Abby and Commodore's faces being willing to take these punches.


#2253925 Jeff Carter

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 February 2012 - 09:23 PM

He's been hurt a lot and he sleeps with other players' wives.

Probably not a good idea for us.


#2253467 Pick Your Poison

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 February 2012 - 08:42 PM

These are all problems, but the lack of a great top 6 scorer is the biggest.

Special teams is a streaky thing anyway, and as others have pointed out, a sniper would improve our powerplay.


#2252720 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 February 2012 - 01:06 AM

Why did Cleary shoot instead of Franzen?


#2252517 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 February 2012 - 12:10 AM

You are kidding right?

How many goals does he have when the game was tied? When the Wings are losing? Franzen useless...

Maybe Ozzie will make a comeback.

I heard that Ben Eager came out of his mother's anus instead of her ******.
