#2224228 What's up with Datsyuk

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 November 2011 - 11:34 PM

Face it. You are to fighting/enforcers what eva is to Hudler.


Not really.


#2224203 What's up with Datsyuk

This team's performance doesn't matter to him, the only thing he cares about is how many fights this team gets into.


:rolleyes:


#2224165 What's up with Datsyuk

Aaron Downey was one of the hardest working, non lazy players i have seen on this team in a while, but put him with Datsyuk and you'll see his numbers drop off as well. Datsyuk has two Aaron Downeys on his line right now. They aren't lazy, they just aren't first line players and that's taking its toll on Pasha.


I freaking wish.


#2224030 11/8 GDT: Avalanche 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 November 2011 - 10:05 PM

Regular season only.

Can't complain about the game, really (so I will take the next sentence as an opportunity to do so). They got way too passive after getting a couple goal lead, Avs were in control for pretty much the entire second half of the game. Oh well, guess you can afford to a lot more when scoring four goals than one.


You can always complain as far as I'm concerned.


#2223595 Norris Watch

I just realized why Sheldon Souray has seemingly revitalized his career.

Because he's dating WWE diva Kelly Kelly.

Don't know if he'll be a Norris nominee, but he should get some kind of award for this accomplishment. :thumbup:


#2223510 Bertuzzi & Hudler likely to miss tomorrow's game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 November 2011 - 02:02 PM

So we can expect to see some actual effort along the boards in tomorrow's game.

I'm guessing Bertuzzi will not be playing the next game either.


#2222944 Commodore to play tonight

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 November 2011 - 11:45 AM

Does he still do that?


I wish.


#2222563 F*** YOU Player X

It's gotten to the point where some of this has to fall on Nick Lidstrom's shoulders; he is the Captain, he is the leader, yet this ship looks rudderless and heartless.

There; I said it.


Meanwhile, Crosby continues to lead his team to success without even playing!


#2222558 Thoughts on tonight's game/Season outlook

1) what impressed you about commie tonight? he's a great shot-blocker, but man...i don't know if a reclamation's going to be possible. he's just too, too slow. if it came to it, i'd personally feel better with janik out there.

2) i guess there were some things you didn't agree with too. no pav with val. huds on the 2nd line. bert dressing. abby not being recognized.

3) i wouldn't mind a guy like worrell.


I wonder how you play hockey video games?

Do you pause the game every other shift to change lines?


And Commodore looked better than Kronwall and Stuart tonight. Also, line combos don't matter if half the team has no desire and is full of lazy floaters. There won't be any sudden magic and spark.


#2222550 Thoughts on tonight's game/Season outlook

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 10:31 PM

I agree. Here's what I'd do.

Franzen - Datsyuk - Holmstrom
Hudler - Zetterberg - Filppula
Abdelkader - Helm - Cleary
Worrell - Emmerton - Bertuzzi


Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Commodore

#2222538 F*** YOU Player X

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 10:20 PM

F*** YOU Aaaron Downey.

For giving us the Cup in 2008 and spoiling the tough guy fans.


#2222464 F*** YOU Player X

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 09:23 PM

At least this losing streak is making LGW a more entertaining place to be.

F*** YOU Carey Price. For playing for the Canadiens instead of us.


#2222454 11/3 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2011 - 09:16 PM

Wow.

Starting to wonder how long it'll be before they make a trade just to mix things up and send a message. What's nuts to me isn't so much that we're losing so much as that these games are all close and they're not playing that poorly. It's not as if there's this huge mess, but something isn't clicking. Given that we really don't have countless holes due to injuries like we did in the past when we'd have these losing streaks, you've got to wonder what's going on out there and in their heads. They look lost.

And again, the whole situation is just bizarre; it's too mundane to panic, yet there's blatantly something missing from this team. I don't know if it's chemistry or confidence or what, but they really need to turn it around fast. I don't buy the whole concern about being in playoff position in November or December even, but if they don't get it together fast and get a streak going in the other direction, we're going to have absolutely no wiggle room when our late-winter injury spell inevitably creeps up. I'd rather not be up against the wall with the team as is let alone a bunch of AHL fill ins.
