#2238527 12/22 GDT : Red Wings at Calgary Flames

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 December 2011 - 10:47 PM

Garbage.....just garbage....this team has some serious weaknesses and I fear they won't be addressed.

This team has won 4 Cups and hasn't missed the playoffs in 20 years, and you're still unhappy?

Abdelkader has been a huge disappointment in general this season. I'm not sure what it is, but he's just sort of disappeared into the woodwork.

In other words, he's very expendable.

I said last season (during his awful playoff) that we should get rid of him. He doesn't give us anything we don't already have. I'd rather see his roster spot taken by an enforcer.

He's our worst bottom 6 forward right now. Doesn't score points, and doesn't fight for his teammates. Why is he on the team again?

WTF happened to Abby? He used to hit people and fight the odd time and just be a pain in the butt. I think that Jimmy will be ran over more now that other teams know he can get rattled and not one player on the Wings will do a damn thing about it. Shame on them.

I'd sure like to know.

#2238330 Stay classy Kesler

Injuries are a part of the game, but injuries from fighting are avoidable.

Sure, by running away from Ryan Kesler.

But it just doesn't look good for him and makes the team look bad. Kronwall shouldn't be afraid of Kesler.

I hate Kesler and his behavior, but I have nothing against him challenging Kronwall to back up his hit. It was a questionable hit and he did leave his feet somewhat. Kronwall shouldn't be afraid of obliging Kesler there.

And don't compare him to Scott Stevens. Stevens had more than his share of fights throughout his career, especially in his prime.

I don't expect or want Kronwall to drop his gloves a lot, but I don't want to see him skating away from Ryan Kesler either.

Boy if I were a Red Wing I would want to pound Keslers face in.

Our powerplay will pound all the faces.

This show is a joke for not covering Andreas Lilja.

Guy has pulled more ***** than the rest of the team combined, yet he can't get one second of airtime.

Nice going HBO. :thumbdown: They'd rather cover that idiot Talbot apparently.

#2237204 Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 December 2011 - 12:45 PM

Here's the 5 ganme win streak; They beat the Islanders in OT, San Jose in OT, Minnesota in a shootout,Anaheim and Calgary in regulation. 2 regulation wins against non-playoff teams, an OT win against another non-playoff team, an OT win against the Sharks and a shootout win against Minny. I'm not impressed

We couldn't beat Minny or San Jose this season at all, so I wouldn't be talking.

A winning streak is a winning streak. This isn't college basketball you know.

#2237046 Is Minnesota for real?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 December 2011 - 12:39 PM

Heatley has scored like 5 goals in his last 30 playoffs games or something.

They have a no-name defense.

They've never done squat in the playoffs.

I don't think they're a threat to the top teams in the West. And it would be a disaster to the NHL if this boring ass team was a threat and somehow made the Finals.

Actually, the Flames haven't been a decent team since Sutter was the coach. He's a horrible GM, but he's a good coach. Took a Calgary team with no talent.. I repeat no talent, to the Cup finals. We'll see if his style can still work 5 years later, at the very least he'll kick some ass on that team.

But LA can go f*** themselves, Ericsson needs to crosscheck Westgarth in the teeth.

Westgarth would kill Ericsson.

#2236795 Turris speculation

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 December 2011 - 07:33 PM

Hudler is on pace to basically be the player we wanted him to be last season. I don't get all the complaining about him. I didn't calculate the math exactly, but isn't he on pace for 55-65ish points?

Because he's horribly inconsistent. For every 10 games where he puts up points, he goes 10 more where he isn't even visible on the ice.

He doesn't bring it every night. His inconsistencies have been even more pathetic in the last few playoffs he's played in.

#2236713 Turris speculation

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 December 2011 - 03:20 PM

I agree with some people about him taking Hudler's spot. No offense. Just not a big Hudler fan. Trying him out for a few couldn't hurt.

"No offense" is right.

That's why Hudler should be moved.

#2236712 Mike Babcock praises Red Wings' physical game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 December 2011 - 03:18 PM

You got negged for a reasonable and well thought out post, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing because you think the Wings need to be more physical? or mentioned Tootoo?

I wouldn't ever want Tootoo on the Wings, but agree in general.

Too many people on LGW don't like the idea of any player being moved.

Seems like a bunch of fanboy slappies that would rather lose in the 2nd round with this roster than win the Cup with a few new players being added in return for some current ones. Apparently, everyone outside of Ericsson and Hudler are untouchable. How dare any poster propose a reasonable idea about moving some people?

#2235946 Can Conner reasonably be sent down?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 December 2011 - 06:35 PM

He's played well, but how many undersized forwards should we keep in our bottom 6?

Hudler, Mursak, Helm and Connor. Can you see those guys wearing a bigger team down physically in a seven game playoff series? If they have a bigger forward there to complement them they do, but not if they're all dressed together at the same time.

Someone is gonna have to sit out or be traded (Hudler).

#2235538 12/13 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Penguins 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 December 2011 - 08:17 PM

Pens defense is making us look silly right now. Reminding me of the 2009 Finals.

Wings are gonna have to dig deep and actually dump pucks in and win board battles. We're not playing the Jets tonight. That fancy s*** isn't going to work every shift.
