#2587074 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by Ram on 31 March 2015 - 02:09 PM

Let's go Wings! Wings show same effort as the great GDT and come out with the victory!


Ya it is pretty weird. Maybe Babcock sees it like Ericsson at least has a track record of decent success here (last season and the 09 playoffs and stuff). Weiss has had maybe a handful of good games here in almost 2 years. He hasn't done much for us at all. 


Is Weiss even in the lineup tonight? The GDT doesn't really mention it

No, he's not. Per Khan:

Justin Abdelkader-Henrik Zetterberg-Gustav Nyquist

Darren Helm-Pavel Datsyuk-Tomas Tatar

Teemu Pulkkinen-Riley Sheahan-Tomas Jurco

Drew Miller-Luke Glendening-Joakim Andersson

Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary (healthy scratches)

On defense:

Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson

Danny DeKeyser-Kyle Quincey

Brendan Smith-Marek Zidlicky

Jakub Kindl (healthy scratch)

Petr Mrazek (starting)

Jimmy Howard

Arguably most exciting game I ever attended at the Joe was Game 1 of the 2008 Cup Finals. Will never forget it. Thanks Sammy and congratulations on a solid career.

Great GDT (again. Big surprise I know). Need this one boys. Put some pucks in the net. LGW!

#2574419 Quincey... Surgery coming?

Posted by Ram on 24 February 2015 - 04:07 PM

This would be a real bummer. Quincey has had quite the bounce back year and has looked real solid for our defense, in my opinion. I called for his head almost every game last season. Hope that if he's due for surgery it is quick. Godspeed.

I don't know, Quincey has been pretty good this year and D seems like he's in a bit of a sophmore slump.  

The defense as a unit has been surprisingly reliable this season. Kronners I think has declined but still gets the job done, Quincey has indeed bounced back, as horrible as that tastes coming out of my mouth. XO I hope stays up for good. Smith and Biggie have their blunders but their respective roles are filled well, IMO.


Danny is need of polishing but the future is bright with him, XO, and Marchenko.

First place is ours, let's hang onto it. If Wings can win tonight and Saturday, I will be thoroughly impressed/ecstatic. Let's go boys!!

Awesome. Thanks for posting. Even though no Wings, I love watching at least the skills comp.

#2564185 1/17 GDT : Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Ram on 18 January 2015 - 09:51 AM

Games like last night's give me good feelings about this team moving forward if they can stay healthy. Mrazek will be key as this grueling schedule continues. Let's keep the points coming boys! LGW

#2561736 Mike Yeo (Wild) Has Meltdown At Practice

Posted by Ram on 08 January 2015 - 09:09 AM

I find this to be extremely tame and the category of "meltdown" is definitely undeserved and an exaggeration by media.

Quincy goal was great. Wings should have won and did. No complaints really. Just win baby.

#2555774 12/10 GDT - Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Has anyone actually ever switched goaltenders for the shootout? 

Bombay did. He put Julie "The Cat" Gaffney in for Goldberg when Gunnar was shooting for Iceland. :hehe:

This was great, thanks for sharing!

#2545578 10/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 @ Capitals 2

Posted by Ram on 30 October 2014 - 01:18 PM

Nyquist = Goose

Tatar = Tots

Helm = Helmer

Kronwall = Kronners

Datsyuk = Dats, Pav

Zetterberg = Hank, Z

Kindl = Amazon (Kindle)

Jurco = Jurcs "Yurks"


I love the nicknames! But agree that they fly more if you are in the actual locker room. Usage probably reflects the fact that I wish I was one of the boys (also term that is used) in the locker room/have been in the past. Sorry if they annoy others but I will definitely continue to be using them!

Well that stunk. Flyers got away with two like Wings got away with two against the Pens, in my opinion. Hopefully lesson learned with defense breakdowns. Moving on! LGW

Hope Weiss gets a shot. Cleary can continue to serve hot dogs at the snack bar as far as I'm concerned.
