#2595001 Post-GDT ECQF Game 1: Red Wings 3, Lightning 2 (DET leads, 1-0)

Yeah Jeremy Roenick exactly what Babcock's plan was....get outshot by 32 shots. Plan worked perfectly.

Looking at their projected 3rd line vs ours make me want to vomit...too late.


#2592116 Team next season?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 10 April 2015 - 04:58 PM

Umm just watched off the record here in canada and they mentioned sj and how changes need to be done and thornton needs to be gone

Now I don't think it'll ever happen but if he could be had for a cheap price although his cap hits pretty high and he's 35 he only has 2 yrs left and everyone knows what a great passer thornton is and im picturing a line of Tatar thornton nyquist doing some serious damage ... And if we add Phaneuf , lineup looks something like ...


Abdelkader datsyuk zetterberg

Tatar thornton nyquist

Helm sheahan pulkkinen

Miller glendening jurco



Kronwall Phaneuf

Dekeyser Ericsson

Zidlicky marchenko

Thoughts?


#2592098 Team next season?

Posted by ami on 10 April 2015 - 04:00 PM

After last night game vs MTL, I hope Babcock is out comes July.

Yes, Wings clinched. Frankly, I've had little doubt they will.

 

The question how they did it.... How they have played last couple seasons, last couple games.

It frustrates me more each game - dump-and-chase tactics, enter the zone and dump it, and chase, chase, chase...

 

Last game I calculated how many times they dump-and-chase and how many times they've got a possession after that. Less then 30%!!!

 

This team used to play smart hockey, now they are dumb and dumper.

 

Can Babcock do better?

If he can - then show us something smarter in the next 5 games, please...

 

If no, then, after these five remaining games - team should say: thank you, coach and good luck to you too!

These dmen of ours look disinterested and utterly lazy. Wake the F up! 




#2590687 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Posted by HockeytownRules19 on 08 April 2015 - 12:01 PM

Still really liked the trade

 

Tough break... Hopefully he gets well

 

With Erik Cole done for the season... Stephen Weiss it is your time to shine (top 9 minutes locked in)

Eva was right all along.  




#2588707 Erik cole - what the hell's going on with him ?

Posted by barabbas16 on 03 April 2015 - 11:35 AM

Why are guys automatically considered worthless when they get hurt? This is a contact sport, I think. Injuries are going to happen. Not a waste of a trade at all. The moves for Cole and Zidlicky were pretty much exactly what should have happened. They are not at all the reason why this team is terrible now.

Posted by kipwinger on 03 April 2015 - 11:26 AM

I'm confused, is 6 points in 11 games bad?  Did you guys think we were getting Max Pacioretty?  We got a 40 point winger, who came to Detroit and played...ready for this...EXACTLY like a 40 point winger. 

 

Or were you guys suggesting that Holland should have known Cole would get hurt in advance, and thus not made the trade?

#2584323 Red Wings have 5 players with at least 20 goals

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2015 - 03:13 PM

 

For a minute there, it looked like both of those guys might have been able to do it too.  Franzen started out really strong before his injury, and Weiss was going like gangbusters for a week.  Dang. 

 

Fixed.

I believe during some pre-season interview Holland said he was hoping for a best-case of 6 or 7 20 goal guys. Funny thing is, if I rememeber correctly, he figured two of those cats would be Franzen and Weiss.

If anything we should be looking to package a couple forwards for a defenseman, not a defenseman for a forward (especially one that will be 36 going into next season). Our forward depth is unbelievable, and our defensive depth is lacking.

Our defensive depth is great. The quality at the top is what's lacking. That'll be a problem at forward soon enough as well. We should be looking at trading quantity for quality in both areas, though that is far easier said than done. 




#2584204 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by kipwinger on 23 March 2015 - 11:32 AM

55fan....why would you be watching some Devil hockey?  The most boring form of hockey on the planet.  Even when the Wings are playing them, I think about whether I want to watch.

 

Not really sure if you've noticed, but Detroit's shot suppression game isn't exactly exhilarating to watch.  Last I knew we were at, or near, the top of teams with fewest shots (for and against) per game.  These days it looks like we're not too different from New Jersey.   




#2583689 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by mvanpop on 21 March 2015 - 12:06 PM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.

I think he would be great on the fourth line with Miller and Glendening, jurco on the third line and Andy out. Unfortunately Tootoo almost seemed to be trying too hard to fight on our team which in the end probably was his downfall
