#2673717 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 10:27 PM

Kenny Holland should be fired just because Red Wings fans are rooting for the Blues now.  How sad.  I won't root for them against any other team in these playoffs.




#2673580 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 04:39 PM

We're so bad right now offensively, that I'd sign Ray Rice, let alone Radulov.  Impressionable youth can go become boy scouts.  My concern is not his attitude, but whether he can still be a legit top 6 forward.  Then again, we don't have many of those, so maybe it's worth a shot.  




#2673577 Ownership shows Support for Kenny Holland

If Zetterberg is our top line center next season, we're in trouble.  He has no room to talk or be angry.  His body can't do what it once did.  Nothing can change that.  

 

As for Holland, he'll never be fired.  The Ilitch family has given him immunity long ago.

I just don't see how St. Louis wins a Game 7 against Chicago. If they're going to win the series, it had to be in these next 16 minutes.

 

They're at home and the score is 0-0.  They still have more to lose and Chicago has less to win.  And St. Louis is still the better team.  Like I said, they have to man up and stop being the Blues.  

 

It needs to start now, though.  This game is not over yet.  They can't be thinking about game 7.  


 

Yeah true. Unless they face Holtby in the Finals. Jones is playing well for SJ, but the Hawks would light him up if given the chance.

 

The Sharks can light up Crawford just like they lit up a better goalie in Quick.  They're a scary team and beating LA might be the breakthrough they needed to reach the Finals.

This is exactly why i wanted the hawks eliminated asap, no other team in this league has a killer instinct

 

I'm just pissed that every team facing elimination is doing better than the Wings.  Embarrassing.

Ladies and gentlemen your 2016-17 Edmonton Oilers. 

 

I wish we had their roster.  They just mismanage it every year.

If the Hawks fall, I don't really care how the rest of the playoffs will go.  Yes, there are some teams/cities I want to win more than others and some teams I'll root harder for.  However, nobody else's winning would make me question the existence of a God or whether if he did exist, that he had any goodness in him whatsoever.

Would love it if we could somehow bring in stammer and backes up front while using Tatar + to bring in vatanen.

Larkin- stamkos- Nyquist
AA- backes- mantha
Zetts- sheahan- pulk
Jurco- glendening- Abby

Also get rid of E and Howard somehow some way.

DK- vatanen
Smith- green
Kronwall- marchy

XO/Jensen/ sproul

 

LOL.  Now let's talk about what will actually happen.

 

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Tatar - Richards - Larkin

AA - Sheahan - Mantha

Miller - Helm - Glendenning

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Green

Smith - Marchenko

 

Mrazek

Howard

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the 2016-17 Detroit Red Wings.   :clap:

It could be worse guys.  We could be the Blues and have zero Cups and decades of choking.  




#2672791 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 April 2016 - 10:00 PM

Hate ? Cmon man, are you like 12? The guy is a hockey coach.  He got out coached big time and has a lot to learn at this level but at the end of the day he's just a dude and dudes make mistakes. 

 

You don't think Henry VIII or Ivan the Terrible would have him executed?

His voice sounds like Babcock's.

Hold the phone. None of them are having success till they win a cup. Otherwise they're all just a bunch of St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks. Season and playoff wonders who can't win out. 

 

Maybe.  We'll see what Dallas does, but Tampa has had several deep playoff runs since Yzerman took over.  We've won one playoff series since he left from what I remember.  If not for Bryzgalov's terrible goaltending, we'd have one series win since 2009.  

 

Also, both Dallas and Tampa have bright futures and young stars.  Our future is not as bright.  Holland has not set this team up for future success.

The real playoff streak was being a Cup contender for about 17 years or so.  Many of those seasons, they were the Cup favorite.  No other team besides Montreal from the 50's to the 70's had a streak like that.  

 

However, the last 6 or 7 years are all about keeping a stupid streak alive just to give us one week of pathetic playoff hockey to watch.  That streak is not impressive.  That's what the Blues streak was about all those years.  Make it to the playoffs and lose one week later.  Who cares?  


This.

 

If Holland wasn't so in love with Blashill we'd see a new coach for next season, but nothing will change.

How can Holland have the nerve to fire a coach when he's been here so long and has sucked as GM for many years?  That would take some nerve.  The ownership needs to step in and fire them both.  The fact that Yzerman and Nill are having so much success just makes it sting more.

Their PP was so bad, from the outside looking in, it didn't look like they practiced it at all. Stagnant telegraphed passes, players without the puck standing still, just down right boring. Datsyuk wouldn't have had to worry about hitting the post if he would have one timed it.

 

Putting two players on the point would be nice for starters.  And learning to shoot the puck quicker instead of stopping it and letting the defenders get in positions to block shots.

Is Kenny Holland still going to brag about 2013?  That's his "You Forgot Poland" moment.
