How did weiss look? I missed the game

 

Weiss looked good. You can see that he is getting stronger on the puck and playing better overall each game.

The canucks board on HF is hilarious.
They're sooooo pissed at the Reffing for losing them the game, and despite a few of the posters saying that he was high sticked by his own player, they're still talking about how the refs missed an "obvious" four minute call.

The refs were bad on both sides, that I agree with.
But its amusing how much they're complaining.

 

Pretty much looks like this place when we lose  :lol:

#2552824 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by marcaractac on 30 November 2014 - 03:32 PM

Unless we moved Ericsson I wouldn't wanna acquire a defenseman that has more that one year(next year) left on his deal. Cause once quinceys deal is up we have

Kronwall Ericsson
Smith dekeyser
Oullete and sproul

So unless Ericsson is moved the only way I want then to acquire a defenseman is if it's short term with nex year being the final year. So a guy like mike green could be perfect just don't overpay.
Also for the record. I have no issue with holland standing pant and holding into the prospects. But they should be playing now over guys like
Kindl, Quincey, cleary, Anderson, miller etc etc

I just have an issue with him doing the middle I the road path. If were rebuilding why give kindl a spot over oullete? A guy who deserve it and can use the experience now.

If were rebuilding why gives Quincey a two year deal? He has been fine no doubt about it but he isn't apart of the future when oullete and sproul are.

 

Because a part of rebuilding is learning how to win. You don't do that by throwing all the kids in the lineup at once. That's hoe you get the Edmonton Oilers. 

 

And why would Holland put kids in over two players sitting in the press box every night? They get playing time in GR. Cleary and Andersson are doing great at keeping the press box warm. 

 

I definitely agree with having XO in the lineup. And that time will come sooner rather than later. But what happens if Kindl or Lashoff are dumped and we suddenly get a couple injuries on the blueline? Screwed, is what.

Yeah, I don't get this at all... I honestly don't think Kindl has been playing nearly as bad as a lot of people make it out to be, but there's no question that a third pairing of Ouellet - Smith is 100X better than Kindl - Smith. I do think Kindl has looked decent on the power-play but Smith or Ouellet could get the job done there as well if given the chance.

 

Yeah, I agree. My one gripe with Kindl is the fact that he is taking XO's spot. I get why Holland just can't waive him. As we still need depth in case of injuries. 

 

So really, get rid of Andersson. All we need is a roster spot, after all.

I can see them being similar to the 2012 kings. Most of these kids have a couple tough playoff losses under their belt, and they could end up taking the league by storm in the playoffs.

 

And who knows what happens at the trade deadline if the Wings keep going the way they have been. Can't see Holland not making a movie for a right handed dman if the team looks like a legit contender.

I don't understand how it is so difficult to get rid of Kindl. There are plenty of teams out there hurting on the blueline due to injuries right now. There has to be someone willing to take him for a low pick at this point to keep XO in the lineup.

Sure, we looked really deadly starting out down 4-1. Sure we won in a shootout and had a much better last half of the game, but deadly? That's a bit far

 

They had a bad start. Even happens to the best teams from time to time. I think the Wings taking over the game and tying it up speaks more of where this team is than going down 4-1 to begin with. The last few years that comeback doesn't happen and the game ends in a blowout. Now this team has the skill, depth and confidence to do something about it.

Would love it if we could sit Kindl when Smith comes back. Would make for the best possible roster this team could ice.

Smith will not be back tonight, he will be evaluated on Sunday to determine whether or not he will be in the lineup for the afternoon game on Sunday against Vancouver.

 

So I'm assuming it will be the same lineup tonight as Wednesday, (hopefully Andersson and Lashoff remain out...) but maybe some tweaks in the lines. I know we won our last game but I really hope he jumbles it up a little...

 

I'd like to see something like this... (the same lines I've been clamoring for since the start of the season...)

 

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco

Helm - Sheahan - Weiss

Miller - Glendening - Abdelkader

 

Love that first line. But I think the IR Express must stay together as long as they continue to produce. I think they will only get better the more time they play together.




#2552408 Are the Wings a Contender?

I think this is a team that could make some noise and surprise people in the playoffs. But by no means do I think they are ready to contend. I think it is gonna take a playoff heart break to put the young guns on this team over the top. This team healthy can def give teams fits in a 7 game series. Would not be shocked to see next season having this team just be the right trade deadline move away from being a true contender.
