#2674027 Mantha

Posted by Richdg on 27 April 2016 - 02:09 PM

Just to compare.

Nyquist first trip up was in 11/12. He played 18 games and scored 1 goal.

Tatar first trip up was 10/11. He played 9 games and scored 1 goal.

Datsyuk's first year was 01/02. He played 70 games and had 11 goals.

Abby played 54 games over three seasons: 07-10. He scored 3 goals over that stretch.

 

Mantha's 2 goals in 10 games is 16 per 80 games. Those are decent numbers for a rookie that wasn't a top 5 pick.

My point being, AHL dominence doesn't always mean a player is a good NHL player. Mantha was not good.

pure craziness. he was good. he wasn't great.




#2672709 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by VM1138 on 21 April 2016 - 09:08 PM

LOL

 

It's probably true, though.  Babcock would've tried to fix the PP.  Babcock would've started Mrazek instead of the Howard experiment.  Babcock probably wouldn't have buried Athanasiou because Athanasiou busts his ass and Babcock loves that sort of thing.  Babcock would've buried Tatar or Nyquist long ago.  Babcock would never have let them sit back and not give a s*** for the whole season.

 

Also, this is a better team (or should have been) than last year and Tampa was worse.  We dominated Tampa most of this series. Babcock definitely would've gotten us a bit farther.  Hardly laughable.

Kenny Holland and Blashill need to be fired after this game.  The Ilitch family needs to start giving a crap again.  This team is NOT going in the right direction.  4 out of 5 playoff exits in the first round.

#2669599 Was Moving To The East Worth It?

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2016 - 09:02 PM

Yes.  Wings didn't move to the East because they couldn't beat Western teams, they moved East so we don't have to stay up until 2am to watch.  The rest is immaterial.  If the Wings aren't good enough to win, it doesn't matter what conference they're in.

Lol everyone blames Howard when he did his job taking the shooter. The other 4 Wings standing around letting one TB payer tap it in get a free pass. This place is unbearable sometimes. Hate to break it to all the Howard haters but Mrazek would have looked even more foolish on that play with how aggressive he would have played it.

He didn't just take the shooter.  He overplayed the shooter and got caught out of position.  He's not supposed to leave the entire net open and hope the defense ties up every man crashing the net.  Even if they do tie up, a puck could bounce off of the numerous skates in the crease and go in. Howard blew that.

I wonder if Holland and Yzerman are shouting at each other in the press box?

Nah Holland is to busy kicking his tires.
