#2532449 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 July 2014 - 07:02 AM

...after a few weeks of thinking about it, and after hearing some interviews, if the UFA's don't want to come here, f*** em! If they don't want to be coached (like Babs said) and want to go somewhere where the team bows down to them, f*** em!  (I still hate the #KFQ signing, but can kinda, sorta understand the Cleary....kinda.)

 

I say, this team will conquer, this team will rise, and if they don't then they will again!  Get Babs signed, get these kids bridged in, lets remake this Dynasty core, Lets Go Wings!

#2528965 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 July 2014 - 06:48 PM

f*** Ken Holland...if any of you defend this guy, then you are just as much re-re that he is...

 

I am done. Thisf****** idiot has lost it. He should be fired right now. I will not watch this garbage anymore. I have put too much into this as a fan. Z should ask for a trade today. His talents are wasted here. Hey, its ok, we'll get Cleary and Alfie...




#2528912 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Damn you Kenny Holland...you offered better contracts but didn't do some kind of voodoo s*** to get guys to come here....seriously, WTF do you want Holland to do?   He made better or equal offers and lost players to teams that are no better or worse than we are. 

 

What exactly should he do?

 

Retire

This team can't score, possess the puck, and they get dominated physically every single game. It is painful to watch this team sometimes.

Wow why don't you look at the top D prospects around hockey. Several of the Wings in the cupboard are in the top 20

 

Until Holland trades them away for 35-45 year old 4th line grinders.

Man this team could use some better players

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

I hate Franzen. Doesn't shoot nor get a pass to Nyquist on a 2-on-1 and then lingers in the zone offside because he's tired from skating for the first time in three weeks.

#2504053 Proud to be.....

Posted by Motown4013 on 30 March 2014 - 11:39 PM

I've always been proud to be a Wings fan. Classiest organization in all of sports, great leadership, passionate fan base, original six. Pride has always followed this organization....YZERMAN playing on one knee to lead his team and then him handing that cup to Konstintinov to show his dedication to such a brave man. The way that Zetterberg carried this team on his back to win 4 huge games to get into the playoffs last year. The medical staff, players and coaches who literally saved Jiri Fischers life on the bench after his collapse.

There is a lot to be proud of a team so rich in history and yet, somehow i find myself in disbelief about that this current team has done.
Three weeks ago this team was in 11th....certain to break the 22 year consecutive years to the post season. Things looked dismal and everyone was critical. Great teams have great players and usually a 1-2 punch. Perry and Getzlaf, Crosby and Malkin, Kane and Toews.....Zetterberg and Datsuyk. Only, we no longer have that 1-2 punch. We have the second most man games lost, but no team has had to endure losing such impact players. We have 6 guys that didn't start the year with this team but will not go down.

They are relentless. I keep waiting for Nyquist to be a fluke.....and he has just gotten better. A kid who wasn't on the roster when the puck dropped on then season and he leads the league over the last month in goals? That's fairy tale stuff.....and it's happening right before our eyes, every time this team plays. How about Glendening? This kid wasn't even a thought at the start of the year...now he's up against the top lines of teams shutting it down. Tatar, the day he lost his dad, kissing up to the sky in admiration, playing with a heart as heavy as an anvil......I could go on and on about the pride I feel in this organization and they way that they have overcome adversity.

I think we will make the playoffs...I know we WILL but even if we don't. Even if somehow the bounces don't go our way and we find ourselves out of the race April 13th, this team...this unbelievably dedicated, classy and big hearted team has made me prouder to be a wings fan......that's a lot to say in such a consistently successful organization.
Good on ya boys......" Dont stop believin'" and we will be just fine!!!!!
LGW!!! 23 all the way!

#2502459 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 27 March 2014 - 09:16 PM

In the last 18 games, Howard has 10 sub-.900 save percentage performances. Of those 10, 9 resulted in a loss, including the last 3 games. His goals-against over the last 18 games is 3.333 per game.

 

Is his defense crap? Yes, but at what point do we stop making excuses for him and accept that if you are going to be a good goaltender, you have to make the difficult saves, especially at crucial points in the game. As I've said elsewhere, he allows his glove hand to dip, resulting in two goals tonight, his rebound control is as bad as its ever been (which is really saying something with Howard), and the way he has been the last few games reminds me of his early season stretch of awfulness. By the the second goal you could read in his body language that he was feeling sorry for himself. He looks lethargic at times and he is allowing back-breaking goals.

 

Is the problem honestly that this injury-depleted team can't score an average of 4+ goals per game to win? Bad as our defense has been, Howard has been just as bad, and getting worse.

Howard has to play better than this.  Yes, the defense is bad but those were both makeable saves.
