#2478474 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

No he's not.  If he was, he'd be an elite d-man.  He isn't, although he's better than Ericsson.  He just gets compared to Lidstrom, either consciously or unconsciously, because we've gotten used to our #1 guy not getting caught very often.

This exactly.  I couldn't name 10 Dmen in the league I'd take over Kronwall as our #1 guy.  And with the likes of Ouellet, Sproul and Marchenko coming up in the next few to push guys for jobs, I'm not worried about our D.

These referees are garbage. Gonna be that kind of night.

If it doesn't get any better and Gamecenter doesn't work in the 2nd period on my Xbox, I'm gonna leave this on the laptop muted and play NHL 14.  That's how lame this s*** is.

In all reality our lines are

Tatar sheahan jurco
Nyquist andy abby
Cleary helm alfie
Eaves glend miller

Not bad, but I'd make a couple changes:

 

Tatar-Tinky-Jurco (DON'T TOUCH EVER!)

Nyquist-Helm-Alfie (speed-speed-smart)

Eaves-Glendening-Abs (sandpaper line)

Cleary-Andy-Miller (keep the ineffictiveness to 1 line)

Agreed. TBH, I just chose Tootoo because his name is the exact number of characters I needed to make all of the lines geometrically even. :lol:

 

Here's the real deal:

 

Henrik Zetterberg  Pavel Datsyuk  Tomas Jurco

Johan Franzen  Stephen Weiss  Gustav Nyquist

Tomas Tatar  Riley Sheahan  Daniel Alfredsson

Drew Miller  Darren Helm  Justin Abdelkader

 

Helm and Sheahan should be switched around, but I like the chemistry Tatar and Sheahan seem to have. And, really, Helm on the fourth line isn't such a bad thing, provided the third line is good enough to justify this. Also, it gives us a big body on each line (Jurco, Franzen, Sheahan, Abdelkader).

I really like those lines, but if it was any lines I could have with any Wings players, it would be almost the same, but:

 

Z-Dats-Nyquist

Franzen-Weiss-Alfredsson

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Glendening-Helm-Abdelkader

 

I would keep that 3rd line together until they become our 1st line, and then still keep them together until they all retire!  Trade Kindl to the Jets for Stuart and bench Quincey:

 

Kronwall-Ericsson

Smith-DeKeyser

Lashoff-Stuart

 

That team could win the Cup.  I'm confident of that.

It will be a cold day in Hell when Mike Babcock and Ken Holland decide to waive Dan Cleary.

I'll grab my jacket and wait.

Cleary ~ 51 games ~ 4 goals ~ 4 assists ~ 8 points ~ minus 9 rating

Sheahan ~ 12 games ~ 3 goals ~ 5 assists ~ 8 points ~ plus 3 rating (no penalties in 12 games)

 

Babcock keeps saying the players dictate who plays, who gets the ice time.  If that is true, then I guess the players know who is going down to GR….or do they?  Would sending Cleary down not free up enough cap space to keep Sheahan up?  If so, then the decision is very simple.

Total domination by Florida

That blown call on what should have been our 4th goal s*** on our momentum.

Didn't Cleary have the same goal called back last game against Florida with Thomas flopping?


I can't even get mad at Cleary for that one.  Garbage call.  Thomas should go back to the farm and DIVE in a hole.

Our 1st PP unit needs to simplify.  Our 2nd is just deadly.

You needed the Franzen gif right under this one.


Smitty with another apple!  He's been awesome lately.

Looks like the Panthers for whatever reason are totally having our number, Thomas is putting on a show. Great guy and ageless wonder one of my favourite goalies of alltime

Last year it was the BJ's.  Brutal.

CLEARY II

Return of Hammer Hands.


Totally deflated after I was pumped up...

But Cleary's your favourite player.

agree no exuses with the dead weight gone need o dominate this

And the Puttytats are without Barkov.  We should win this game 10-0.  Please win this game 10-0  :lol: .  I love close games, but I want to see the Wings win one so convincingly that if you left the room, you may miss 2 goals.




#2477259 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 26 January 2014 - 12:16 PM
