Still can't believe they gave Huskins Lilja's number.

 

No respect.

#2348500 Kindl's future...

Whatever happened to the Tollefsen guy we traded Leino for?  I know there wasn't any place to put him when the trade took place, but seems like someone could have used him for depth.  Was he that bad?

 

A Euro who drops the gloves?  Holland was appalled at the idea.

Snipers... what snipers do LA have? Boston?

Depth scoring is more important than having a Stamkos. We could use another good goalscoring winger for sure, but we need scoring from everyone right now. Bottom 6 have to chip in a goal every now and then. Filppula has to score. Our D has to score. No one is scoring.

 

LA and Boston had a much better top 6 in their Cups than our top 6 this season.  And their bottom lines were grittier and harder to play against in a playoff series, than our bottom six forwards this year.  

 

There's nothing about this lineup that screams success and long playoff run.  You either have a team built on great talent, which we don't have much of anymore, or a team built on hot goaltending and grit/stellar defense, which we don't have either.  

 

This team has no identity.

It really didn't change the direction that much. He should have had it.

 

Howard is a mediocre goalie who gets paid like a mediocre goalie.  We can't expect any more from him.  

 

Problem is, this team isn't good enough for that anymore.  We need a goalie who can steal playoff series and carry a team.  Like all the other 7 and 8 seeds who have had success in recent years.  I don't see that in Howard.

BTW, could the Blackhawks dim the lights in their arena any more?  

 

It's like a freaking bar.

Kronwall needs to stop being a red-headed stepchild and actually command this powerplay properly. 

 

I know he's not Lidstrom, but he is filling his shoes and he needs to be a better quarterback on the point.  There's no sense of coordination on the entire unit.  

 

And we know the second unit is too useless and undermanned to produce, so I won't even go there.

We should sign Mark Mowers to bolster this powerplay.

I think we're going to start seeing fans jump off the Wings bandwagon this season and jump on the Blackhawks. I don't mind, we'll see who the true fans are.

 

I'm going no where, I've been a fan since 1989, and a Tigers fan since 1983.

 

:rolleyes:

 

Right, because most Wings fans who are unhappy are actually future Blackhawks fans.  




#2347389 Brad Stuart destroys Gabriel Landeskog

Intimidation - pure, and simple.

 

Will Stuart go looking for another big hit now that he knows the other team will retaliate?

 

That's the point I wanted to make and you said it better than I did.

 

Intimidation.  Plain and simple.  Stuart will think twice about hitting Landeskog or any other Avalanche top player again.  That's exactly what the Avs and their fans would want.  

 

This is because Kocur wasnt on Stevie's line. I saw Perry go after a guy right away after one of his linemates got hit. I love that guy. He is like old school Shanny.

 

Perry is a ***** who can't fight.  How do you compare him to Shanny, who had around 100+ fights from what I remember?

The refs tossed a bunch of guys at the end before any "excitement" could happen too. Thanks Bettman!

esteef

 

Again?

 

What exactly is the penalty called?  10 minute misconduct for a future penalty?  

 

Remember that Tom Cruise movie, "Minority Report"?

Fighting after a clean hit is one of the only times I think guys should get 5, 2, and a 10.  

 

I know it's a little different because he's the captain, but i'm so sick of guys getting jumped after clean hits.  That's more of an attempt to take hitting out of the game than anything Bettman does. 

 

Honestly, I have no problem with fights after clean hits.  I understand why someone wouldn't want their star players getting hit with big hits, whether it was legal or not.  If someone nailed Datsyuk with a clean hit, I'd want someone to step in and make others think twice about doing that.  

 

As long as fighting is legal, so is fighting from clean hits.  Then again, I also want the instigator removed, so I can see how you'd be even more upset if that were done.

 

Oh, and I forgot what a terrible fighter Stuart is.

Did Cleary's breakaway remind anyone else of game 6 of the 2009, SCF?  

 

:confused:

I agree. That's what I meant when I said the price would be high, meaning that they would want worthwhile forwards in exchange and really that leaves Helm and possibly Abdelkader.

 

Abdelkader, unlike Helm, is expendable.  

 

This team really seems to struggle when Helm isn't around.

Who are these kids?

 

Our farm system isn't as good as people here make it out to be.
