#2376478 Crosby left the game after puck to the face

Posted by wings_fanatic on 30 March 2013 - 03:24 PM

off the top of my head .... seen some fans of other teams for instance as well as pens fans coming on the boards when we were struggling earlier this season laughing at the redwings and how we were over and having a good old time

 

Doesn't mean we have to stoop to that level. Don't forget, not all Penguins fans are like that. Some choose to be fans that simply cheer for their team in the same way that we do for the Red Wings. You are deciding to be the type of Red Wings fan that goes out of the way to piss of fans of other teams the same way that those Penguins fans you described were doing... why stoop to their level?

 

Furthermore, wishing a guy like Crosby to be hurt or to be glad he is hurt, is like a fan from another team being happy if say Pavel or Hank were to get injured and I don't think many of us on here would appreciate that. Maybe you should just enjoy the game.

Why the eff is Cleary now on the 2nd line with Hank?!? Jesus christ Babcock needs to get over his man crush for Cleary. Cleary is fine on his 3rd line but does not belong on the top 2 lines. 

 

Also Franzen is doing nothing for me on Pavel's line. I think Brunner has a lot of jump this game and is creating some chances and SHOOTING THE PUCK. Why not put him on Pavel's wing instead of Franzen?

 

Abdelkator- Datsyuk- Brunner

Franzen- Zetty- Fil




#2371828 Why the Red Wings should be sellers this year

Posted by wings_fanatic on 21 March 2013 - 02:21 PM

Whether for better or for worse, there's no way in actually knowing that. The LA Kings would've been the LAST team most people would've picked to win the cup last year out of the 16 teams who made the playoffs. Hockey, more than any other sport when it comes to the playoffs, is highly dependent on how a team is playing leading up to and during the playoffs.

 

Well most people picked them to win the Cup before the season began... they just underperformed all season. I am tired of people using that logic just because LA won the cup from the 8th seed... they were a top notch team that finally got their act together.

I would love to see how many teams in the nhl would still be in the playoff race like the Wings are with the amount of injuries that they have sustained this year. The number of teams would be extremely small so Kenny was right on

This is so obvious what Kenny is going to say. He is going to announce the return of Nick Lidstrom! He has had it planned ever since Nick announced his retirement last year! 

 

One could only wish haha.

I am sick and tired of watching the Red Wings not able to generate offense or score goals. This has went on for about 12 games now and Mike Babcock continues to not change up the lines and yet we have yet to score again tonight. I think it is time to consider firing him because this is ridiculous!!! Any coach would have changed lines to spark something tonight since nothing has been going on but not him. He needs to go.

how the eff is that not called a penalty??!! He was clearly tripped! After the garbage the refs called against the Wings and to not call that is pretty sad. Having said that, what a shift by number 13 :)




#2369328 Time to blow it up and rebuild

You should have saved this ridiculous post for April 1st...

Monster had no chance on the first 3 goals. The last two he would have liked to have back but I do not blame him for this loss. I know he can and will be better. The larger problem here is the line combos.




#2368889 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by wings_fanatic on 13 March 2013 - 11:51 PM

Agreed 110%. I don't agree with what Babs puts out on the ice but Holland is to blame for the s***ty contracts and lack of talent. Holland was betting on the big fish last year Parise and Suter and missed all the horses that would have worked well. Then he panicked and signed scrubs for not one but two freeking years. 

 You spelled freaking wrong :) 

 

And honestly, right now I would say it is more of Babcock's fault than Kenny's. Kenny did all he could... if Parise did not want to sign here, he did not want to sign here.  Fact is, tonight we would have had a much better chance to win the game had ABDELKATOR not been on Pavel's wing AGAIN!!! Babcock uses the same lines that do not produce. If that does not change, he needs to go.

Well it is upsetting that the Wings lost this game because they played with intensity, but made dumb errors. But the loss highlights more than that. Ever since that Vancouver game, the Wings have had trouble scoring more than two goals in a game, and virtually none of the big guys have been scoring. What has Mike Babcock done in this time? Only kept the top two lines pretty much the same. Hank/ Brunner is not working anymore! Franzen and Abdelkator are doing nothing with Pavel! But Babcock continues to keep his lines.

 

In my opinion, if Babcock continues to stick with these same lines, when they are CLEARLY not working, then he should be fired. It is ridiculous. I don't care how successful he is as a coach, he is not doing his job right now by keeping these lines when they clearly have not been working the past dozen games.

It would be nice to see a sniper on Datz wing for a change

At this rate I would be happy with just someone with a combination of skill and will. Cleary had will but no skill and Franzen has skill but no will. Lol.

Another good period by the Wings and that 2nd powerplay unit was great at moving the puck, but also getting shots to the net. The first unit should take notes.

 

Also, I think it is time the Brunner/ Zetterberg experiment comes to an end. Yes they played overseas during the lockout and had chemistry, and had chemistry earlier in this young season, but lately they have been getting nothing done together. More than that, Brunner looks like he is just trying to do too much and Hank has been making some off passes. A simple mix of the lines is the solution here.

 

Filpulla- Datsyuk- Brunner

Nyqust- Zetterberg- Franzen

 

Fil and Pavel are the 2 best forwards out there tonight and both guys can get Brunner set up for shots and allow Brunner to simplify his game. I have always believed that Franzen plays better with Hank and Nyquist would add some nice speed to the line. I really wish Babcock would consider this.

And yes, Brunner on the point is NOT working. Babcock needs to give up with that approach now. Let him set up down low and play Kronners and Smitty on the point.

Luck?  

 

They're winning this game because of stupid defensive lapses by Detroit.  That's not luck.  

 

The Flames deserve to be winning this game.  

 

Their 2nd goal was a complete fluke. Bad bounces like that have been happening to Detroit a lot lately, not to mention the Wings also hit a post very early on which is a bad bounce... it seems lately all the good bounces go to the other team... but based on how the Wings played the 1st there is no doubt that they do not deserve to be down a goal right now and if they continue to play like this, they will win the game.
