Good thing the Wings were 100% healthy in the playoffs.  

 

If the Wings don't win the Cup every year, Holland sucks and the team needs to be blown up and he needs to be fired.  If Holland had signed Filppula, he'd have been an idiot, but Yzerman is a genius for signing him.

 

Completely rebuilding a team with low draft picks while not missing the playoffs doesn't happen easily or overnight either.  

 

Not sure where you get the impression that I think the Wings haven't done a good job as well. It is possible to give another franchise credit. Giving one GM credit does not mean I am hating on another. My only point is that something special is being built in Tampa, while some have their noses too high in the air because they haven't won anything since Stevie Y took over as GM.

Great, I knew as soon as Cleary was inserted into the lineup he wouldn't leave. Third line minutes now.....

 

To be fair he has played great the last couple games and has earned his place on the 3rd line. Cleary playing at this level is a Cleary that makes this team better. It's nothing to complain about really. I'm happy to see he is healthy and skating well again.

Quincey ready to return Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. Howard is starting in goal. Said he was late for practice due to "little trouble with alarm."

 

Great news! Also seems Weiss is feeling better and he expects to be good to go by Friday.

So did he just get a delay of game penalty?   I think that should be a double minor or a 5 minute major for unsportsmanlike conduct or something.  

 

Otherwise, every goalie should do this when a star player has a breakaway on them.  Better to give up the powerplay.   

 

It was a penalty shot. So he faced one dude instead of 2. Fair trade if you ask me lol

Howard tends to play lights out VS the Kings. Lets hope that continues tonight




#2545499 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Tends to happen when you barely play any hockey in 2 years. *cough*Helm*cough*




#2545495 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by marcaractac on 29 October 2014 - 10:09 PM

Just a sore groin, guys. These things tend to happen when you don't play for a long time. Remember when Helm finally came back and he went out with a sore groin almost instantly? Nothing to worry about as far as I'm concerned. This is basically the reason why he was sent to GR to begin with.

Well, I rarely drink to get drunk anymore, so that's why I stick with the light beer. If I'm drinking to get drunk, I'll get on the liquor... :tounge:

 

I love how we have been to a couple parties at the same time, and even had chats and had no idea we were both members on here until now haha


Lakeport -- a buck a beer! Ontarians know what I'm talking about.

 

Now this brings back some classic memories. But hey, it all tastes the same when you're already hammered




#2544835 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by marcaractac on 28 October 2014 - 03:06 PM

This is a good thing. He can now get in game shape so when he cracks the lineup now he won't have to play so much catchup and be limited to 8 minutes as a result.

It's October.....


And the team is having a great start despite playing some tough teams this month. Are we not allowed to be excited?

Oh yeah, you're one of those who have been predicting doom and gloom. Sorry your predictions have been completely wrong thus far. But not really.


#2542673 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by marcaractac on 20 October 2014 - 04:08 PM

I love how this thread has been reactivated from the depths after 5 games, the Wings are 3-1-1 without their best player, have gone toe to toe with 2 of the best teams in the league, look incredibly energetic and speedy, and have a tremendous PK. 

 

Whats not to like? 

 

Screw the 'experts'. They're not the ones out there on the ice. And so far, I like what i've seen (outside of the first two periods of Wednesdays game, but even then we got a point out of it)

 

I also love that Quincey has been a positive contribution to the teams success. Especially on the PK.

Scoring in OT counts as a win in regulation correct?

 

It is a ROW win, yes

CBC acting as if we'll lose Babs after this season because the Wings wouldn't be willing to pay him more than Holland makes.

Swap Kindl for Ouellet and I'm happy. I don't even hate KFQ this year yet.

 

100% agree. Quincey has been good ever since about half way into last season. That plus getting Dats back in the lineup and this team will be really fun.
