#2164996 Is San Jose more talented than us?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 May 2011 - 08:06 PM

Why should this matter?

This isn't the NBA. You can't win on talent alone. We've seen the Wings lose plenty of times to teams we were more talented than at pretty much every position. Why can't we do the same thing to someone else?

Will beats skill in hockey, and SJ is not that much more talented than us for the Wings to lose this series regardless of that fact.

We're just too lazy.


#2164803 Tuesday's Practice Lines

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 May 2011 - 03:08 PM

I actually like these lines.

They've worked before, because it's similar to what we had last series, except Hank has taken Abby's place on the 2nd line, and Abby has replaced Miller with Flip and Hudler.

This will hopefully work like it did against the Jets.

However, I am a little surprised to see Modano not in. I wouldn't mind dressing him in place of Hudler for a game.

I believe.



That we'll score more than 1 goal at some point this series.

What exactly does Modano bring to the table?

This is pretty much it.

someone earlier reminded us about Vancouver in 2002 when the Wings were down 0-2. Thats true, and it could happen again, but there are a few things that are different:


1. Steve Yzerman
2. Brenden Shanahan
3. Sergei Fedorov
4. Brett Hull
5. Luc Robitaille
6. Dominic Hasek
7. Igor Larinov
8. a 31 year old Nick Lidstrom


You forgot about Chelios.

And that Bowman guy.

And this guy.

I think it's my duty (with Mindfly gone), to mention that Howard's soft goal was the game winner tonight.

Carey Price stops that s*** every time. ;)

Abby is awesome. No need to dump a guy because he's taken a couple high-sticking penalties. :rolleyes:


No?

I just read on TMZ that his girlfriend has dumped him for that exact reason.


#2163639 Who's the better coach?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 May 2011 - 05:15 PM

It's obvious now that Mclellan was the reason we won the Cup. As for the Gold Medal, that was Crosby's doing.

Bring back Hitl.......I mean Dave Lewis.

Abs needs to sit.....permanently.


Worse.

He needs to be let go in the offseason. There are plenty of physical players out there who makes his money, actually fight, and also have no offensive upside of any kind.

In a physical series like this, he should be bringing it on San Jose's candy asses.

I'm done with this man.

I'm starting to see the fire in their eyes. Hopefully this carries over into the next game...and the next round :cool:


LOL.

Hey, remember how good we all felt when Lidstrom scored the opening goal of this series?

Those were the days.

He looks like he's been impregnated by Robert Lang.

We need to start some fights here. Not going to win this game anyway.

Ericssson, Abby and Bertuzzi need to goon some s*** up. I want someone to disregard the instigator and start punchin Pavelski in the face.

these two teams aren't even in the same league.

even if detroit manages to pull off a miracle and win this game, the sharks easily take this series.

wings simply can not play with this sharks team. period.


It's because they have size and grit, and we don't.

This soft euro thing needs to end after the season. I would gut the secondary players on this team in the offseason.

We're making Niemi look like an elite goalie right now, while LA didn't. And it's because LA is a bigger and harder working team than us. Not because of skill.

Wings should just throw in the white towel.

The don't want this right now.
