#2663423 3/29 GDT - Red Wings at Canadiens - 7:30 PM EST

Hate to say it, but that might do it. 

 

Agree with sentiment that we have to catch Boston to have a shot. Flyers are playing too well right now. Boston schedule comparable to DRW to close out. They have to play the Hawks, Blues. If the Wings go 3/5 with one of the wins being the Bruins, it could still happen.

Just win. Let's go boys. Let's go Wings!




#2660358 3/15 GDT : Red Wings at Philadelphia Flyers, 7:30 ET

Flyers deserved to win that game. This one hurts, but DRW ain't out yet. Showed a few bright spots. Pick up and move on to the next one.




#2657301 Goalie Battle

Posted by Ram on 02 March 2016 - 11:18 PM

Yeah it's time to switch back to Howard for the time being. Sorry Mraz but your skills are tanking at the wrong time of the season. 


Lack of good defense doesn't help and I get it, but Howard was pretty solid in his last few starts and I'd pick him for now. 

 

Howard has always been a streaky goalie. He has single handedly put DRW in positions to win and also has been their downfall. Mrazek, at least until lately, was either A) better or B) more consistent in his goalie-ing.

 

I don't know, maybe Mrazek still not 100%? I think it's pretty clear he's still the number one guy at this point. Kind of an annoying problem really. Don't know for sure who you're gonna get.

 

I agree though that as long as Jimmy's hot to put him in there. That's when he flourishs. Like Goldberg in Mighty Ducks 2. Gotta ride it out.

Well that game was an eye opener. Gotta brush it off though. Chi has been the gold standard since 2010 and it’s not arguable. Gotta bring it to their barn on Sunday. Let's go Wings

Let's go Wings!

That was a bummer way to lose the second point last night. Back to backs aren't the greatest either. But stay the course indeed. Let's go Wings!

Howard to Calgary PLEASE! Just not for Hudler....

If Kenny could pull off Jimmy for Happy Huds straight up, I would praise him as God.




#2653414 Detroit Pistons Season Thread

Posted by Ram on 16 February 2016 - 08:28 PM

Big move for the Pistons today acquiring Tobias Harris from Orlando. Would argue now that the Pistons' starting five can run with anyone in the East. Bench is questionable at best, but healthy, perhaps the playoff drought is over.

 

All in all, gotta be happy with the job that SVG has done, especially with what was inherited. 




#2653048 Vancouver should make the black retro uniforms permanent

Posted by Ram on 15 February 2016 - 10:15 AM

The ones they wore the other day did look really sharp, I agree on wearing them more often at least. And the "V" sweaters are among my all time favorites, zero fluff!

I did not. Have a link? I'll have to look that one up!

#2645974 Pick next season's Winter Classic teams/location

Posted by Ram on 04 January 2016 - 01:18 PM

TCF Bank Stadium. Wild vs. pretty much any of their division would be great, but would prefer Blues, Hawks (ugh), Jets (imagine the old school jerseys), Stars (team in en fuego and prob will still be next year).

 

Think it makes sense - hockey pretty big in Minnesota, could host for college/junior/high school etc games outside of the actual WC and I bet it would be a great event even if they can't get beer sold at college stadium, I remember that being a hurdle that needed to be crossed for hosting at Michigan Stadium.




#2638538 11/20 GDT : Los Angeles Kings at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Very nice win for our boys. What a showing from Larkin and Mrazek. I think we all had expectations for Larkin and he's exceeded them and then some. I personally didn't realize how fast he was, and now he's showing toughness. What could be next?

 

Let's run back another one in the win column tomorrow night.




#2636123 11/10 GDT : Washington Capitals at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Hoping the boys channel one of the all-time greats tonight. Glad he's being honored at the Joe. Congrats and thanks for the memories, number 91. Let's go Wings!

Let's hand Stevie and the Bolts their first loss. LFG DRW!
