#2266743 Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 March 2012 - 11:19 PM

I believe everyone of these guys are hurt I have no proof with Franzen but just the way he has been playing for most of the year I would put money on it that he has ome type of injury.


Yeah, it's called "Robert Lang Syndrome"

Bertuzzi works very hard out there. He justifies his price tag. I don't know what all of you are expecting out of him. The fact that he's playing without any goal-scorers on his line does not help. Franzen is in a slump, and Hudler is horribly one-dimensional. I haven't a clue what is wrong with Cleary.

That said, I don't see the call for whining. The team is not in a catastrophic position by any means. Far from it. In case you've forgotten, they were 1st overall in the league until last week, and they put together a 23-game streak at home. These are not accomplishments that a mediocre team can achieve, and the vast majority of teams in the league are doing considerably less well than the Wings are. None of the guys we're discussing in this thread are perfect, but they do their parts, as does the rest of the team.

Those of you expecting perfection and/or constant dominance on the part of the Wings should alter your expectations to a more realistic level.


It's better to whine about the team than to whine about all the posters here.

Why do you even come to this forum?

Say what you want about those guys, but we're stuck with Franzen, Bertuzzi, and Cleary for a while.


You might be right.

None of these guys are in their 20's exactly, but the Wings are too connected to older players to ever consider pursuing other options.

I know Franzen has a big contract and they just re-signed Bertuzzi. I don't know what Cleary's status is, but I wouldn't mind cutting ties with him after this season.

Well, the last couple of playoffs, some forwards have shown up and some haven't. To win the Cup, you have to feel that everyone must show up.

Don't know if we can expect that from this lineup.

Watching Franzen lose physical battles along the boards to guys like Kane and Keith is pretty frustrating. They're great players, but with his size, he should be tougher to handle. Just looks like jelly out there.

I like this Smith already. He just ended our fight loss streak.


#2266447 3/4 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 March 2012 - 05:01 PM

Again, better now than in the playoffs.


I didn't know there was a quota for injuries. So when it's met, we won't have any more?

Good thing we traded Commodore for that valuable 7th round pick.


#2266309 The Blues are in the driver's seat

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 March 2012 - 12:41 PM

I'm not, they are beyond cocky now


Me too.

I've had to deal with Blues fans before, and they act like their team has won something before. It's pretty funny actually.

f*** their organization and the players. I hope they lose in the first round.


#2266036 3/2 GDT : Wild 0 at Red Wings 6

Good game. Hope Bert's problem is serious.

On to s***cago!


DraperFan is that you?

definitely, not much to complain about tonight


I'm working on it.


#2265732 07/08 Wings VS 11/12 Wings

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 March 2012 - 03:16 PM

Ah, so it's the usual fare: defensive pessimism. If the Wings lose, you've protected yourself from most of the disappointment by predicting failure all along. If they win, you get to be happy. That's cute.


:rolleyes:

Posts like these are why so many people here don't like you.


#2265391 Russia/Canada Revisit the Summit Series

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 March 2012 - 12:11 PM

I've always hated Bobby Clarke, mostly because of "The Slash"

I realize the competition was heated and was the most important series in hockey history, but that was plain bulls***. If I played on team Russia, I would have pulled a Marty McSorley on him in retaliation.

Depends on who the President is at the time. :hehe:


Honestly, it doesn't matter.


#2265178 Justin Abdelkader: A fighter's courage, but no fighter's skill

Yep, we've been hearing "heavy winger" and "someone to keep the flies off" for years now.

esteef


I never did hear what the "Moen" asking price was?

I just want a big tough fourth liner Kenny, is that so much to ask for?


And the city of Detroit is tired of watching their fighters get their asses kicked. That's not what the town stands for.

It is pretty sad that he has to take it on the chin, because Holland doesn't dress anyone else who's willing to do it consistently. I hope he doesn't get a concussion from trying to "fire his team up"
