#2655781 2/27 Stadium Series GDT : Red Wings at Colorado Avalanche, 8:00 EST

I don't understand why we don't play with two d men on the PP at the point. We always get caught with 4 players mid to low and one d men back so it's so easy to clear the puck. 

 

This. Oh my f*** this. I mean, isn't that why Holland has been wanting a righty on defense for so long to begin with? To have a lefty and a righty at the point?

Because I am convinced Ken Holland controls every aspect of this team. The best players do not play

 

People are way too desperate to blame everything on Holland.

You guys do realize mackinnon is pretty good and that was a laser shot right? Not sayings it's not possible to make the save but damn the goalie wars every time someone scores on us is ridiculous.

 

Too be fair, outside of Habs fans, Wings fans are probably the most unreasonable when it comes to blaming things on goalies.

Holland said he will explore trading Howard in the off-season, so some posters are interpreting that as Holland refusing to trade Howard. Don't shoot the messenger lol.
 
I disagree about the free agent pool for goalies being deep, its pretty much all backups. There is quantity for sure, but not a ton of quality. The "headliners" are Hillier, Ward, & Reimer. I think a healthy Jimmy is better then any of them.
 
Ward, Cam
Hiller, Jonas
Backstrom, Niklas
Ramo, Karri
Khudobin, Anton
Reimer, James
Scrivens, Ben
Stalock, Alex
Johnson, Chad
Enroth, Jhonas
Montoya, Al
Peters, Justin
Lindback, Anders
Raanta, Antti NYR
Hutton, Carter
Gustavsson, Jonas 
Desjardins, Cedrick NYR 
Labarbera, Jason PHI
MacIntyre, Drew CAR
Smith, Jeremy
Zatkoff, Jeff
Budaj, Peter
Danis, Yann
Dell, Aaron
Ellis, Dan
Leighton, Michael


Plenty of cheap options for Mrazek's backup next season, I see.

Roy not playing in the 3rd. Time to tie this s*** up

Mantha and Frk will help. They are legit. Abdelkader, Tatar, and Nyquist have no business being on the top 2 lines. And Richards is completely inept 5 on 5. Holland continues to pick his butt tho. So we gotta watch boring hockey until Blash figures it out.

Mantha-Larkin-Frk
Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Jurco
Pulkkinen-Sheahan-Abdelkader
Glendening-Helm-Athanasiou

Frk and Pulkkinen are 2 right handed bombs for the pp. Dats and Z slot well on the left side. Larkin and Sheahan up tAbdelkader

DeKeyser-Quincey (24 mins)
Kronwall-Ericsson (20 mins)
Smith-Green (16 mins)

Kronwall-Dekeyser first pp.
Smith-Green 2nd pp.

MRAZEK


Wtf had Frk ever done to make you think he is a top line nhler? What color is the sky in your world? I feel like it definitely isn't blue.

Hopefully Howard keeps this up to increase his trade value for summer

People like to ***** about Big E. Wings have allowed 12 goals without him this week...

The guy plays a lot of tough minutes. Sadly the only thing people notice is his mistakes.


#2653459 Kari Ramo

Posted by marcaractac on 17 February 2016 - 03:09 PM

That wouldn't be an awful trade considering Hudler is a UFA after this season so it more or less becomes a salary dump.
 
If Kenny could secure Reimer from Toronto for a 5th, or 6th round pick...


A salary dump is all we are ever gonna get for Howard.

Datsyuk has definitely found whatever it was that was missing.

On the plus side, there is lots of time to tie the game?

I remember another Canadians goalie winning the Hart and Vezina in 2002 and he was never the same after that. 

 

No way Jose!

Right?  I just don't know how with all of our advances this could even happen, obviously ALL people will want to see ALL of the game.  The building cost 1.03 billion to build, this makes no sense


The building just straight up was not designed with hockey in mind. It's a basketball arena.
