Anyone that thinks Brad Stuart (I wont grace him with a nickname) deserves anything more than a D is blind or high on drugs.
I may sound like a tin-foiler but I seriously think he was trying to throw games. I also expect a negative 5 or more.
He played like Ericcson did last year only we know how he usually plays. We also know that hes in the pocket of SJ right now and wouldnt surprise me if a juicier contract would be offered if we lost here and there. He skated away from pucks, let forwards skate past him without challenging them and flat out played at 50%.
Unless he has a broken foo,t he was sandbagging and/or throwing games.
Everyone blames Franzen cause he hasn't scored 80 goals to compensate this team... Franzen should have scored 5 goals a game like he is paid to do... Franzen blew out those teams because we had a good team he can't single handedly win games for you when Datsyuk just wants to dangle around and have no impact in a game since he played with hossa
I just look at this team through my own eyes and not rose glasses. I have been with this team since 1979 have seen the worst, seen a building of a champion and now into this. I have never held back from saying something that needed to be said. The problem is, most "fans" think if you say something bad about the Wings, then you aren't a true fan. I live and breathe Red & White. That is why I can objectively criticize this team with both positive and negative views. I shouldn't have to watch hot garbage skate around the ice only giving 60% because the regular season gets boring to them. f*** that! You are a GD Red Wing! You are part of my franchise! I don't want a s***ty player playing for my franchise. And if you don't deserve to be on the greatest franchise in professional sports, I have no problem calling you out...And if Holland tries to continue with this small skilled type player format, he needs to be fired. This type of team cannot compete for the Cup anymore, they just proved it.
yeah its not like Hudler has scored the Wings only 2 goals the last two games
How can you be mad at Hudler. He did everything he's asked too. Yes he's small that's not his fault. At least he works hard and actually goes to tough areas unlike that puss* Franzen who is like 6'2 230lbs. That guy is a joke
[quote name='PavelValerievichDatsyuk' timestamp='1333829521' post='2279838'] Wow, that is something! The team dominated at times. They lacked the finishing push, but there were many chances. Crawford maybe not be amazing, but he played quite well today. The Red Wings battled back and tied the game. I'm not sure what you think the words "disgraceful, ridiculous, or fiasco mean" but I'd check the dictionary if I were you.
I think you better learn the game. Keep watching. Hopefully, you'll eventually catch-on.
