Like I said the sooner we become less swedish the better, god these guys never take the puck to the net rarely hit and don't like to shoot the puck, it's crazy How Z is only good when the team is good i'm sorry but this ridiculous I have lowered my expectations for this team i'm ready for the rebuild.
Z carried this team for years gtfo. He should be the last one ANYONE complains about.
Smith is better then most of our defenseman. Lets not act like this thread would be made if he didnt make a dumb mistake last night. Yes he can make silly plays, but everyone of our defenseman does the same s***. DeKesyer hasnt been that great this year but since hes everyones boy toy (probably because hes from Michigan), you dont hear much about him. Kronwall turns it over, same with Ericsson. Quincy is probably most reliable. But i guess since everyone had high hopes for Smith he gets bashed on the most.
I also like when people talk about "hockey smarts" like they actually played the game at a high level and understands what it takes. I guess its really easy.
We couldn't give him away right now if we tried. I'm not sure why people think he can still be that number 2c here. He was given plenty of time to adjust and I rarely saw a decent play out pf him. I Get that he may have been still injured but even so we should have seen at least a bit of something. Unless we have some free cap space next season I say we buy em out . If legwand performs decently and resigns then there is no point in wasting any more time on em. Hope I'm wrong but.
Two months is plenty of time to adjust while hampered by injuries? lol Guess uve never played hockey before.
Thankfully Holland isnt as shortsighted as some fans.
Zetterberg's pass went through the crease and between the goalie and a defenseman with perfect accuracy. Try again.
No. It wasn't. He scored the first goal of that game. Zetterberg had the game-winning goal.
Fil actually scored the goal to put the Wings up 2-1. Z scored to put them up 3-1 before they scored that late one. Fil's goal was for all intense and purpose, the winner.
Fil was highly under appreciated on here. One of the better playoff performers for us as well. But thats not surprising, this is the same fan base and website that was rdy to give up on Kronwall, Ericsson, Howard at times, now it's Smith....
