The way we started, I was just about to turn to something more interesting, to see if Darnell is really the father of Tawahi's baby boy (the DNA test never lies). Then Kipwinger woulda been like,"Hey T.Low, did you see either one of those goals?", and I'd've been like,"No", and he would've been like, "It's ok, either did Corey Schnieder!".
Thanks! I guess that's understandable but it really is a shame that RedWingsCentral had to get cut. I watch a lot of Grand Rapids hockey and as many junior games of our prospects that I can but relied on them for all my information and updates on all of our prospects, especially the ones playing in Europe.
Just curious, what do people that used to use RWC use for their information now?
THE KID LINE is NOT READY to EXCELL as a 2ND LINE.
Who's with me on this?
Yes, they can compete and hold their own, but they are still not ready to be counted on for scoring against 2nd pairing D, etc.
If they stay as a 2nd line, (ok, namely Tats and Shea) we will continue to experience a lot of one goal wins/losses.
Conversely, THE KID LINE will be an awesome 3rd line, providing energy, scoring, and all round "holy f***". They can push us over the top PROVIDED we get a legit 2c to slot between Franzen and NyQ, as Weiss was spossed to be.
We need to keep the 1st line together to continue their awesomeness (ZDA) and the Kid Line as 3rd to be awesome, and stick Helm in to hold the fort as 2c until...1) we get someone else, 2) Weiss gets his nads and mojo back, 3) Helm becomes the "Never saw this coming" story of the year.
Boy, these guys don't know what they're talking about. Maybe they should watch some games before they comment
How are Nyquist, tatar, helm, Jurco, abdelkader, sheahan and Glendenning all the same type of player?
How is Nyquist not a scorer?
And Dekeyser is offensive? Haha
Well, atleast they made a good point about getting rid of Tatar for a guy who can come in and get 20-25 goals. I mean he only had 19 in 70 some games as a rookie, and only has 3 in 11 games so far which only projects out to...hmm, whaddya know, 20-25 in 82.
Two of last nights goals exemplified Babcocks thinking.
Helm with Datsyuk because his awesome puck retrieval skills: Tied the game with an awesome goal.
Tatar not ready for more ice time: his mark scored while he was indisciplined, opened the door for the loss of the game. This team has a pretty flat finish to it: not a makeup that can score consistently.
Tatar Sheahan Jurco, while a really cool line that we all love, obviously cannot/have not scored as a 2nd line. The only way they produce is as a 3 rd line.
