Unfortunately babs and co. said for saturdays game theyll roll the same lines from last game...which to everyones absolute dismay means hammer hands, cement skates, useless f*** Dan Cleary will destroy the top line yet again. Ohboy!
It doesn't matter how good Tatar, Nyquist and Jurco are if they're buried for the likes of Cleary, Miller and Sammy. We have the pieces to be a contender but it's a matter of not having faith in management to use them properly. Jurco may not be a Wing in time to play with and learn from Dats.
Andersson with a terrible play on the 1st goal, Howard got lazy getting back into position knowing the boards are active at the Joe on the 2nd goal, then Cleary takes an idiot penalty as usual not controlling his stick and then Sammy punks out of a fight with Stalberg….brutal. Wait for the kid at the other end to get his 1st career shutout.
EA's whole system is crap. DeKeyser is still under 80 rating, Quincey is over 80, Ericsson should be better defensively for ratings, rookies are all 60 on faceoffs....the list goes on. Howard has missed a few saves he could have had, but there's certain guys that get on the ice and don't bring much to the table that's positive and are heavy minus ratings. Cleary, Quincey, Miller and Andersson should all be on cold streaks.
Although Pav's has been struggling, you cannot put him 3rd. He needs to be one of the two shootout shooters, if it doesn't get to the 3rd round, the it's a waste. He is almost 50% in the shootouts, and although he's been stopped 4 times this year hes too much of an asset to not have a chance.
Exactly. How is this even a question? We have the ALL-TIME leading shootout scorer at 40ish% and we're complaining? We have enough guys on this team to rag on, let's leave Dats alone. Dude's over a PPG, he's doing his job. If we had a reliable bottom 6, there wouldn't have been 5 straight OT/SO losses.
Tally up our bottom 6's +/- and then complain about Datsyuk in shootouts. Unreal. And +/- isn't a useless stat. Quincey is garbage and is -12. That is an accurate portrayal of how awesome he isn't. Dats had 2 goals tonight when they really counted. There's no record book for shootouts. Quit playing Miller and Cleary in OT and it won't get that far.
lol so im reading all the comments on this thread and up at the top it says there is 3 pages so i go to the third page but there is nothing and it says page 3 of 2.
i got a laugh out of that
anywho....hope wings show up tonight and get 2 points instead of just 1 like they have been getting lately.
4-2 red wings final score.
We need someone that's not Dats or Z to step up. This team is not going far if no one else will start producing.
