#2605448 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by darkmanx on 01 May 2015 - 03:34 PM

 

Exactly. No one knew  s***  about Datsyuk in 2002 other than he had great hands. If you had told me after the cup run in 02 that Datsyuk would go on to score almost 100 points in a season and win a bazillion Selkes I wouldn't have believed it.

 

Hell, Holland nearly traded him for Scott Gomez.

 

Half the fanbase wanted it as well which is actually hilarious.


 

Yes first round exists happen, but it's what, 4 out of the last 5 years for us now? That can't be shrugged off by saying "it happens. Someone gets to win and someone gets to lose".

 

It's very clear that we're lacking some punch to finish teams off in a 7 game series. We can compete, but as of late we've been coming up short, and it's happening far too often for my liking.

 

You know next year Boston is going to be better, just another team in the east that we'll have to fight with for a playoff spot. Something needs to be done.

 

Boston is in cap hell and Chara is basically done. I highly doubt they will be any better then they were this year.

 

We took Tampa to game 7 (half the forum was saying Tampa in 4), and should have really won the series. I don't look at this year as a complete failure like some other have said. Franzen, and Cole could have really helped. Kronwall could have helped the last game as well.

Pulkkinen is at that spot where he's too good for the ahl and not quite ready to face the nhls top competition, like he would be in the top six role he's projected for.

I think next season we should start with three scoring lines and pulk will be on the third line. That seems ideal at this point, imo.

I'm not understanding the Rag's fans. They lost. So what is they put a lot of shots on net. Whoop-dee-doo. How many games/series has the Wings lost over the years looking like that? It's about the timely goals; and this team has that in spades.

 

Lack of skill? Whatever. You can't be the number 1 PP in the league without skill. Honest opinion? Sore losers. They expected to wipe the floor with the Wings, because you know...they are the supposed "cup favorites". The Wings? This team was never supposed to make it to the playoffs according to critics and HFboards "critics", so as far as they are concerned? Over achievers AKA just a bubble team, AKA easy win.

 

Looks like they are a fan base that doesn't know how to handle the success of the team they root for. Horrible winners, and sore losers. Hate to read the web-sites I go to if they win the cup. Ugh.

 

Do I think this team can go all the way? Small chance. Do I think this team can make a huge splash? Hell, yea! Much bigger than any other fan base give this team credit for. I predict some salt coming the other way come playoff time courtesy of the Red Wings.

 

Side note. Whats with the personal attacks? So the RED WINGS win, and they say crap like "at least I don't live there." Really? Stay classy, eh.

Check this out from the HF rangers board.
Ha.
Redwings are like that skinny little "chinese kid who only used Guile in street fighter 2. You remember the cheese combo? Ya that's what I'm talking about. Lack skill so they cheese."

First time I've ever seen someone say the wings lacked skill.

They are idiots. After the trade deadline everyone started creaming over them saying they were the best team ever to skate on the ice because of the overrated yandle and that they were going to win the cup this season. When a team like the wings that wasn't even suppose to make the playoffs beats them its because of home cooking and cheating. I wish I could punch every rag fan right in the nose that says that.

I'm excited as hell to see zetterberg line.


#2578074 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by darkmanx on 03 March 2015 - 07:41 PM

Marchenko is at best their 7th best d-man. He will sit when everyone is healthy. His shooting hand doesn't trump ability.

 

He trumps Kindl and I don't care what you say.

Easily the worst part of the late start games is waiting all damn night for them to start!

 

Well at least this is the last late game of the regular season!

Going to this one tonight. Getting drunk before the game. I hope they win. I hate Couture.

LGW!

 

Would love to see Nyquist turn on goose mode and score a couple!

Personally, I'd rather see our bottom six be:

Pulks-Weiss-Jurco
Miller-Glendog-Andy

See if that third line can get a little offense going.


#2574768 Quincey... Surgery coming?

Posted by DickieDunn on 25 February 2015 - 12:15 PM

I don't get the Petry love.  Is it just because he's right handed hand his dad played for the '84 Tigers?  Because he's not that good.




#2574419 Quincey... Surgery coming?

Posted by Ram on 24 February 2015 - 04:07 PM

This would be a real bummer. Quincey has had quite the bounce back year and has looked real solid for our defense, in my opinion. I called for his head almost every game last season. Hope that if he's due for surgery it is quick. Godspeed.
