#2508481 Have the Wild Hit Their Ceiling?

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2014 - 02:10 PM

If the Wings would still be playing in the West they'd be out of the playoffs picture. The Wild are fare away from hitting their celling Suter, Parise are in their prime Brodin, Granlund are two very promising young players and they are certainly going to add another big UFA this year...the Wild could become a scary team in a few years.


Or the NYRs of the West.

Not to be a Debbie downer BUT why is everyone putting Zetterberg in the lineup? Is his first skate not today? Holland made it very clear that this "skate" of Z's means very, very little. He hasn't been on skates in months, and they want to see how it goes....The line up last night is what it's going to be for the first round and a half is my guess. I liked Goose with Tatar but Jurco would look great there with them! I'm so stoked for these playoffs!

Z is a warrior. If there is any chance he can be back in the first round he will be.

#2508430 Nyquist since Datsyuk's Return & Unnatural NHL Development

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2014 - 08:54 AM

Who knows that whack on the boards he got in the Sabre's game might have shook him up a bit more than then we know.  I have no worries about him its Franzen that needs to go the  AHL ride some buses and get back to mule mode. 


Not to derail this thread, but anyone bashing Mule's play hasn't been watching him. Yes he's snake-bitten but he's had a ton of chances and he's playing well, driving the net, going to the tough areas, etc.

You also have to realize he is getting a lot of press around the league so opposing players are going to be paying much mor attention to him.

And much like Hasek he also wins games very consistently, pretty well done for a clown.


That's an anomaly.  Team has scored more for him this season, but his save percentage isn't that good.   


I can't imagine him in a 7 game playoff series.  It'd be like a heart attack on every shift.

I think with the Wings missing two key guys and the way Columbus has been playing lately, the Pens probably fear the Jackets more than the Wings.


I guarantee the Pens want the Jackets. They won the regular season series 5-0. The Jackets have never won a playoff game. The Jackets have been winning, but so have the Wings.


The Wings are scarier on almost every level.

Just because you don't like someone and you make a comment in a thread that its welcomed in doesn't mean I compare him to my jilted ex-girlfriend. But it is funny how he does get compared to a "girl"friend and not some sook of a boyfriend.


I wasn't directing that comment at any specific one post.  Like I said, I think he's the best player in the league but I still pretty much cant' stand him. 


But I also don't go seeking out videos about him that will only irritate me.  Especially when one of the biggest complaints is about how much attention he gets.   It's like drinking spoiled milk repeatedly and then asking someone else to drink it.  "Doesn't this taste awful!  Here, have some!"


I prefer to go the route of "He Who Shall Not Be Named" when it comes to Crosby.

Meh.  You could probably do a video like that with 90% of the players in the league.  Certainly not a fan, but wishing injury on a guy is really over the top. Plus, you have to consider he came into the league as an 18 year old with all the pressure in the world. I think he's toned it down a lot in recent years. I don't like him because he plays on a rival for the Wings.  But I'd take him on the Wings in a heartbeat.

Nothing like having immunity at your job.  It'd be nice if we all had that, eh?


Successfully help build your organization to the very pinnacle of your industry and then keep it there for 22 years and you might.

Not one bit.  In my house, when Don Cherry talks, no one else does.

Mine too

#2506075 4/4 GDT - Sabres 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 April 2014 - 09:13 PM

Philly has less points than us, yet they're ahead in the standings.


This system is not very good.  Go back to having top 8 teams in the Conference.  If there's not enough cities in the Mountain time zone with NHL teams, so be it.

Posted by Playmaker on 04 April 2014 - 08:48 PM

Franzen might not be putting up goals, but he's engaged, getting chances and playing well.  I don't have a problem with that.  The goals will come if continues to play this way.

#2505608 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by Richdg on 03 April 2014 - 07:46 PM

Howard has been very good when healthy. he had a very good October, bad November and decemeber-had his knee drained twice in that span, very good in January, ok in Feb, and rolling along nicely since then. One stinker in march.

No he is not a good puck handler, many goalies are not. But he is good at stopping the puck, which is pretty important.

Posted by Richdg on 03 April 2014 - 06:45 PM

Yes he had a bad first half of the year. But now he is healthy and playing much better. Last nights game was Classic Jimmy. The RW were outshot nearly 2 to1 yet win because he kept us in the game. Kudos Jimmy!

#2505572 Detroit could be dangerous come playoff time...

Posted by matt198913 on 03 April 2014 - 05:12 PM

Detroit has one very huge advantage over every team in the league and that is coaching. There is no doubt Babcock is the best coach in the league. Look what he's done for the kids this year. Look what he's done without his top goalie his captain, his best player, his best penalty killer, his best goal scorer, for long stretches this year. He should be coach of the year but he won't be. This guys hockey IQ gives the Wings an advantage over whomever they play in the playoffs.
