#2496064 3/16 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 16 March 2014 - 09:07 PM

I can't believe people are still ripping Holland and Babcock for this... We are EASILY a top 3 team in the Atlantic when relatively healthy.

 

Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Helm, Weiss, Jurco, Andersson... I really like what Glendening brings, but come on... on a regular team Glendening and Emmerton wouldn't even be there.

 

This season is because on the injuries not coaching, etc.

I can't wait for our 4 year injury plague to stop.

the only way we win this game is if we get a lot of luck. like a goal from the center ice line luck

If Tootoo repeatedly punches Shaw in the face and ribs, doesn't high five or hug him after, that will be one in the win column.

Yes

Yeah, they're a refreshing change from Edzo and the homer crew of idiots.  Very enjoyable.

Glendening eats pucks for breakfast....on the PK.

Kronwall smells blood tonight!




#2495436 Ryan Ellis

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 15 March 2014 - 08:18 AM

What would it take to scoop this kid outta Nashville?  Was watching their game last night and forgot he was even there.

 

Nashville top four is Weber, Josi, Del Zotto, Jones.  Where does that leave Ellis?

 

Very offensive minded in junior.  Right handed shot, PP guy.  Younger Rafalski type?

 

Kronwall Dekeyser

Ericcsson Ellis

Smith Lashoff/stay at home vet?

Past his slapshot, he doesn't have much to offer.  Not a particularly good passer, which Rafs very much was and he's not good defensively which is why it took him so long to break into Nashville and why when you watch Preds games you more or less forget he's on the team.  Very sheltered ice time.




#2495096 The Leaders HAVE to step up

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 14 March 2014 - 11:25 AM

Like I said in the last GDT, the Wings are like an Army without a General without Z.  The leaders we have who can step up are Kronner, Alfie, Mule and Legwand.  Mule and Legwand have been busting ass, Kronner has ben on/off on/off lately and Alfredsson has been a ghost since the Olympics.  With Dats out also, it adds a lot more burden on those 4 guys, with Z out, we don't have that guy that throws the team on his back to make the post season.  Mule can try, but he's not the leader Z is.  Z turns it up 6 gears when it's on the line.

And I bet he trash talks better than Miller

Probably took lessons at Cheli's Chili.  He's a definite s*** disturber.

Comeau needs to get Kronwalled severely.

f*** that's garbage, hit from behind and then goes down like he was shot when Smitty barely crosschecked him.

Good on Smith for sticking up for himself.  Should definitely have been a 5 minute boarding call, and I love how they actually gave Comeau a diving penalty for that superman flop.




#2494128 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 10 March 2014 - 06:27 PM

 

I completely agree, and my views on Smith are pretty well established.  But I do recognize that a guy can develop late...particularly in our system.  I was one of the "f*ck Ericsson" folks a couple years ago and I had to eat crow on that.  So I have to at least consider the possibility that Smith could do the same, as much as I hate his stupid face.

I actually think there is something to be said for how goalies do the little things that affect wins. Rebound management, puck handling, communication all make a huge difference. I dislike when the puck comes in slow on howie and instead of steadying it for the dman beside the net he just chucks it into the corner and allows the forecheck to come in on the dman trying to dig it off the boards.

Yeah, Jimmy's terrible at playing the puck.
