#2357131 Anyone else getting pissed that the Wings can't hold leads

#2357124 2/17 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Wild 3

I wonder how much worse it'll have to get before management decides it's time to let the kids play and see what we can get for some of the vets, and if it's not much, waive 'em

 

Management is the problem at this point.  

 

Who do you think assembled this team?  Babcock?

Well that was embarrassing.  I'd give my left leg to have our entire team play together with the lineup we projected to have at the start of the season.

 

You mean the same lineup that got beat in 5 games last year in round 1, minus Lidstrom and Stuart?

 

Yeah, can't wait till we have that lineup back.     :dozing:     Keep your leg.

Perfect ending.  

 

6 on 5, and they outwork us to every loose puck.

Samuelsson and Quincey taking turns shooting the puck 10 feet wide.  

 

Freaking clowns.

On the bright side, we're getting off to leads.......

Why the eff is Cleary still getting powerplay time? I cannot believe Babcock called Fil out to play better when he continues to play Cleary with our top players while he plays like s***. It is time Cleary is off this team for Nyquist... Cleary does nothing.

 

On another note, the Wings need to get back to playing their game in the 3rd.

 

Yeah, Cleary's play has made me lose faith that Tampa would be interested in having him in a package in the Stamkos trade.

I missed this.



Missed this too.

 

You're back from suspension?

The powerplay is our enforcer Kenny.  

 

:innocent:




#2356267 2/15 GDT : Anaheim Ducks 5 at Red Wings 2

What do you all expect? The team is playing without four top-six players, the team's best grinder, and an important defenseman. And don't give me the nonsense about injuries being no excuse. If one removes talent from any organization, that organization's performance will suffer.

 

Honestly, this team wasn't that good last year in the playoffs, when they were relatively healthy.  

 

This defense looked shaky even when the season began and they were together.  




#2356219 Time to sit Ian White

Even Ian White's hockey stick doesn't like him anymore.

#2355959 Datsyuk "upper body injury"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 February 2013 - 08:20 PM

Anyone think it might be time to stop looking for someone to blame?

 

Sitting on a problem is never a good idea.  

 

You can't deny this team has been riddled with injuried the last few seasons.  This year has barely started, and we already have more guys out than anyone else.   




#2355291 Dan Cleary appreciation thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 February 2013 - 10:32 PM

Cleary has been awful, but isn't every post in the GDT about him enough? Seems redundant to just keep piling on.

 

That's because he was everywhere.

 

Playing on the top line, playing on the PP, playing on the PK.  You'd think he was Sergei Fedorov with how often he was out there.  

 

It's like Babcock is trolling us.

I officially nominate Cleary for the Masterton trophy!

For perserverance and dedication to hockey, despite obvious evidence that he doesn't belong in the league.  




#2355105 2/13 GDT : St. Louis Blues 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 February 2013 - 09:09 PM

and he doesn't have even 1 point this year, and he's played every game avg. ~19min./gm

 

wish we'd only signed him to a 1-yr. deal(well actually, I wish we hadn't signed him at all)

 

Holland screwed this team with that trade.  First round pick for a guy who can't score a point.
