#2586958 Petr Mrazek is the #1

Will tell everyone one thing, we currently don't have a number one who goalie who can steal games on a consistent basis. Of course, turnovers and the defense has helped much either


#2586383 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Posted by Redwings 1926 on 28 March 2015 - 11:49 PM

We shall see. The playoffs are a whole different season.

 

Seriously, how many of you thought that the defending Stanley Cup champion Red Wings would get swept by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in the 1st round of the 2003 playoffs, or lose in the 2nd to the Calgary Flames in 2004, and to the Edmonton Oilers in the 1st round in 2006?

 

In 2006, they steamrolled through the regular season with 58 wins, and then looked flat as day old beer in their 1st round playoff series against Edmonton. 

 

With that said, I don't put much stock in the regular season...

I love the tangents LGW goes on sometimes. I feel like I'm one of the few that realize both goalies are not playing up to snuff but I think it has more to do with being hung out to try and blowing their confidence.

I honestly thing our goaltending problems come down to a much bigger problem of just buckling down and playing a good team game. An easy example was the 4-0 Tampa game. Detroit buckled down and didn't give them any grade a chances. Against the Isles tonight we gave up way to many good chances and a terrible PK. Yes not every goal was unstoppable but the team in front of him sure didn't help them out.

Overall this isn't a 1 man problem, it's a team problem. If we lock it down and actually help our goalies out which our team has not been doing, they can start gaining their confidence back and start making the big saves when we need them.

The last three losses have all had multiple soft goals. You can't lock down every game. There's going to be mistakes, breakdowns, bad bounces...teams are going to get chances. Goalies have to make some tough saves, and they most definitely should be making the easy ones.

 

Arizona hardly had any more chances than TB, but nothing seemed to hit Jimmy that night; maybe his positioning was off; then he gave up a buttery soft OT goal. Half the goals in SJ were weak. 2 of Mrazek's today were, and a 3rd was a little iffy. Neither the Sharks nor Islanders had an unusually high number of good chances. Not all the goals were bad and we wouldn't have had shutouts, but you don't need a shutout to win. With as much luck as we've had with our own scoring lately, we should have gotten more than 3 points out of the last 4 games. And we most likely would have if we had gotten decent goaltending.

 

I agree the tangents can get ridiculous at times, and goaltending is not the only problem with the team. But this last week it has been by far the biggest, and all the ranting is about as justified as it'll ever be.

#2515797 The Franzen Hate.

It's not 2008 or even 2010 any more. Mule has been a middling player for a while now, not great, not total garbage, the frustrating thing is knowing what he is capable of and not getting it consistently from him. Frankly, I'm done with him.

Posted by joesuffP on 25 April 2014 - 01:17 PM

Franzen has 11 playoff points the last 3 years. Scored 1 goal the last 3 months of the year until our eventual elimination. Those 5 goals in 7 games is a streak he should have gone on 4-5 times in a year not once.

Gus has 23 goals in 28 games. Now that's a real streak that got us into the playoffs, not Franzen's 5 goals in February

#2508961 Ryan Malone arrested

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 12 April 2014 - 11:13 AM

I hope he's punished just like anyone else.  Drunk driving kills folks, taking sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers away from families forever.  I wish Mr. Malone luck with any alcohol issues he may have.

WAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!  No TRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!  LEGWAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The crying around here is out of hand.  No other good centers were moved, as long as they didn't give up too much (conditional picks) this is a good move.

Were the goals his fault? Ah, maybe the first one. But the theme with Jimmy this year, is pucks in the net at the worst possible times. Throw out all the stats, the only one that matters is wins. We're almost in December, he has 5. Must be better, no excuses.

So what if they have fighters? Who is going to fight them? As for being tough, that doesn't automatically override skill.

People need to stop worrying. They probably won't even play their goons against us because we aren't a cheap shot team. And you can't stop Chara from doing what he does. People need to stop worrying. The Wings have played and beaten tough teams before
