#2219606 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

Babcock just continues to be outclassed by his former assistant.

I agree that there's definitely a truth to this. Flip, Hudler, and Cleary, all have fun beating up on the Coyotes but are noticeably absent from Sharks games.


We can't beat the Sharks without Robert Lang.

This team is screaming for a trade right now.

We need a goalie.

If Howard didn't have a kid, he would have stopped that shot. Can't let a "bad shot" like Thornton score there.

Also, Ian White has played like garbage tonight. Maybe he's still too friendly with his former teammates.

If we had an enforcer on our team, that ref would be intimidated from making that call.

I'll never forget his last shift in Detroit. This is what leadership is all about and the reason why he gets the "A" on his jersey.

This thread is almost as good as the "Trade Zetterberg for Trevor Gillies" thread that I was planning later this season.

We need to find a goalie who absolutely refuses to procreate. Make that a contractual clause maybe.

What you're seeing from GMR is called defensive pessimism, though he's sure to falsely label it as 'realism.'


Crymson, I don't think we're going to win the Cup this year.

I do think moves need to be made at some point this season.

In my opinion, we can't win the Cup with this roster. We've tried two seasons in a row, and couldn't get past the 2nd round. Sometimes, you have to try something different, and not keep banging your head against a brick wall in aimless futility.

And I'm not saying this because we've lost two games in a row. I said before the season that some kind of changes would have to be made at the deadline. We'll have to wait till then.

We're still a good team and will likely win the division, but there's no reason to expect a Cup run with this roster. We've learned as much in recent years.

Meanwhile, the Pens continue to dominate without Crosby and Malkin. <_<

In 2007-08 the Red Wings' first 7 games were 4-2-1 (9 pts) -- pretty sure we remember how that season ended.

So far they have 5-2-0 (10 pts) and are on pace for 117. So, following a horrendous 5-2 start, without reservation, we begin another season episode of Panic time! :yowza:


Yeah, but in 2008 we had Downey. We don't have Downey now.

I fail to see your point.

How about a 4th line of Ericsson/Abdelkader/Bertuzzi?

That would be our "enforcer line"


#2218232 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 October 2011 - 03:59 PM

??? Yah, people are real scared of Bertuzzi. His shove-fests are frightening.

Bertuzzi is a sissy.

Ericsson hasn't fought anybody yet, but he doesn't shy away from it. I want to see him take on an enforcer.


Hey, you don't want to see Bertuzzi angry.

Just ask DraperFan......I mean Steve Moore.
