#2124356 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 March 2011 - 07:26 PM

I wouldn't mind if Pavel gets it.

He's more visible every game than Zetterberg has been. Hasn't taken him long to dominate since coming back from injury either. It's like he never left.

I guess Zetterberg must be doing something in the lockerroom better than Datsyuk is, because he's been all but named as the future captain. I don't think it should be an open and shut case. Maybe they could be co-captains or alternate. I normally don't like that, but in this case it would be fine. They are the Euro twins after all.

Vancouver certainly got better. Subtle moves, but addressed their need for depth on the bottom two lines. Yes I know, they need to win when it matters, but damn that is one stacked team.


I don't think their franchise has ever been in this position before.

Being the top favorite in the West and maybe to win the Cup. Interesting to see how they respond. Hopefully, really poorly.

This game definitely improves Hudler's trade potential.

I'm so glad for him. :thumbup:

Four straight shootout wins.

:unsure:

Guess we finally decided to practice them.


#2122454 Red Wings Won't be Active at Trade Deadline

Our team is much improved over last year's, and the year before that we were in the SCF. It's not like The Wings have completely failed in many playoffs in a row. Even last year they could have won against San Jose if some pucks bounced differently.


But you've got to stay active and not be complacent.

We don't need major shakeups, but sitting on our asses the last 3 years in a row at the deadline is a little disconcerting.

Not to mention, we have weaknesses on defense and in net.

Why would we do anything?

We've won the last 3 Cups in a row. No reason to change what isn't broken in the playoffs.

Why are the Wings playing bored? Have we won the last 3 Cups in a row or something.

This boredom could lead to an early playoff exit if they aren't careful.

Well I figured we were just talking about most memorable in recent history.

What about Downey on Lappy in 2008? That was a pretty nice one, too.


That was a great one too.

I remember screaming at Lappy all night during that game. Even after the game I was furious and yelling. My neighbors must have thought I was getting raped.

I need to find the GDT of that game in the LGW archives. Probably some interesting stuff posted there. :D

Ericsson should fight more often. It gets the guys going, shows we arent complete *******, and gets him off the ice for 5 minutes! Cant go wrong :lol:


He started the fight well, but lacked that killer instinct to finish Ott off.

Cory Cross's beating of Ott still stands as the best Wings fight in recent memory. :hehe:

just checking in and saw the score ... is there any positives for tonight or are we going to have another one of those team meetings?


We actually had someone fight for a change.

Kudos to Ericsson for providing the only thing in the game that wasn't shameful from a Wings perspective.

GMR wants to see Bertuzzi paralyze the French puss Ribeiro.

When did Franzen grow some balls.........When the guy he's challenging is coming back from a broken orbital bone and is wearing a cage.


#2121460 Avery Sucks.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 February 2011 - 07:24 PM

We also seem to have a "No Fighting" and "No Hitting" policy that goes nicely with our shameful "Don't back your teammates up" policy.


Wow, I couldn't have said it better myself. :clap:

Don't understand why Wings fans would hate Avery. He plays in the East and hasn't really done anything in Detroit to be hated so much.

I'd love to have a guy like Avery on the team. He's also a much better player than anyone would care to admit.

1st in wins
28th in SV%
31st GAA

These stats, for any goalie would lead me to believe: This goalie is starting too many games, this goalie has a GREAT team in front of him, this goalie is easily replaceable due to the team in-front of him. Take the name of the player and I feel you'll come to the exact same conclusion I have.


Excellent point. Howard wouldn't be winning s*** if not for this team.

We're not winning because of him, but in spite of him and his meager stats.
