#2509816 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by marcaractac on 15 April 2014 - 12:49 PM

I chose "other" and I'm voting Danny Dekeyser.  Logged hard minutes, against good competition, and played very well.  All in his rookie year.  If Smith's uneven play gets excused because he's a rookie, Dekeyser deserves HUGE kudos for being a rookie and playing extremely well.  Just imagine what our defense looks like without him. 

 

I agree that he has been fantastic. But the D would be a lot worst without Kronwall as far as this season goes.

Eddie O is such a POS. Watching the Pens/Flyers game, and he word for word just said, while talking about the Red Wings: "Welcome to the Eastern Conference. Having to play Boston in the first round" literally laughing as he said it. Absolute joke this guy gets to do color for national broadcast games.

I have to agree with the play Dats thing, not sure I have opinion on others. Dats just looks a little slow out there still, I am sure he wanted to help the team really bad make sure they got in, but seems like he is still afraid to push because of the injury.

 

He has been steadily improving each game. I figure come game 1 of the playoffs we will get the leaving it all on the ice pav.

The team has to keep the intensity level going. If they play a team like Boston it would be their only chance. Resting guys now would lower our chances of getting passed the first round. We've seen it time and time again with teams resting players.

Nothing more than a move to get a big hockey name to fill the position to ease fan backlash. 

 

My only concern is him poaching staff from the Wings.

Did you watch the game?  He didn't even look like his knee was at 50% and kept loosing his footing, etc.

 

Which is what happens when you don't skate for 3 weeks. It's gonna take a few games for him to get his legs back. He'll be fine

Damn, Pavs looking rough.

 

He looks like his injury is worse now that he is "recovered" then when he was injured.

 

The guy went 3 weeks with zero conditioning. He'll be fine. He is out of shape, not in serious pain

Mine too

 

Exactly. Get passed his very outdated stereotypes and the guy knows his hockey. I overlook his opinions on European players because the guy is old.
