#2466320 12/19 GDT: Flames 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT)

Penalties on Jurco and Smith were horses***. Smith is in the box because Brodie skated into him for god sakes.

#2466171 Babcock's Job?

Posted by marcaractac on 19 December 2013 - 01:42 PM

Does anyone think his job is in danger? I mean, each year they've done worse in the playoffs. Can he inspire his players?


False. Last season was their most impressive playoff run Since 2009. The team is under a huge transition. It will take time, but Babs is the man for the job. No question. 


Coaching doesn't solve growing pains for young players. Experience does. 


The team needs to get bigger, Holland has been drafting bigger players. How Holland gets so much flack with the kids this team has stock piled right now is baffling. He has prevented putting the team in cap hell, and has been building from within. People just have no patience. The bad contracts on the roster right now are short ones. 

#2465285 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Do people forget how awful this team was in February 2008 when the injury bug hit? And that is a roster that went on to win a cup. The overreacting by some in this thread is absolutely hilarious. 

#2464815 Jurco Called Up

Posted by marcaractac on 15 December 2013 - 02:26 PM

Exactly how many times has the opposition "taken a run" at a player this season? Engelland? Kicked out of the game. McLeod? Kicked out of the game, and Tootoo was on the ice at the time. And so on.


This. It annoys me that people think having a tough guy around will prevent these things from happening in today's game. It won't. 


Not saying there is anything wrong with having some sandpaper in the lineup, it would be welcome. But it would not prevent the whole "guys taking a run at players" thing. Ridding the instigator rule sure would though.

After watching 3 replays I didn't see any head contact. 


Maybe I need to wear glasses but to me it was shoulder to the chest with Abby throwing his head back. 


You definitely need to wear glasses. Abby's head was the only thing contact was even made with

I hate to say it too but that hit on Abby was clean imo. 


I wish I could say it was dirty...but I can't but whatever I hope Abby ain't hurt or concussed 


It was 100% contact to the head. Under no circumstances is that hit clean.

what game do you start getting concerned?? the hbo camera's just started like a week ago, hasnt been there since the start


I don't get concerned. I love the Wings, and watch every game. I root through the good times and the bad. But to get concerned because 1 player on my favourite hockey team is having trouble adjusting? Life is too short to stress over something I have no control over.


We all know what he is capable of. All players go through droughts. His confidence is just not there right now, and when he finally does break through, I'm confident he will break out. He isn;t exactly the first player to go into a scoring drought. And it isn't like he is out there costing the team games night in ad night out. As long as he is playing responsible hockey, than what's to worry about? Be patient. The points will come. 

#2461749 Howard = Average

Might sound silly, but I think the Olympics might just be in Howard's head. Giroux had an abysmal start to the season for a similar reason. If he doesn't turn it around before the olympic break, it will be interesting to see how he performs after it is over with.

When an opponent of the Wings s*** the bed against us, there is always someone who posts a link to their forum laughing at the doomsday posts they find over there. Do these people not take the time to read their forums during an embarrassing loss? It is the exact same thing. Yet these same people will continue to laugh at other fans after a rough loss as if we are so much better than everyone else.

But now is the time for Weiss to start producing.

Not to jinx it but this could possibly be Howards easiest shutout ever :P
