#2143070 Are the Wings going to keep the Hawks out of the playoffs?

League decided that Chicago will, in fact, be in the playoffs at all costs.

#2141559 2010-2011 Central Division Champions!

Posted by Dimaline312000 on 03 April 2011 - 08:23 PM

After beating the Minnesota Wild 4-1 the Detroit Red Wings have clinched the Central Division. Now I know this is almost a common thing for this team but I just wanted to mentioned this because even though it's not a Stanley Cup or anything right now I feel it is something for the Wings to build on and gain confidence going into the playoffs. For a team that has seen it's fair share of ups and downs this season being Divisional Champions is a great step forward. I'm not going to commit to any comment about what the team is going to do in the playoffs this season. Of course I want another Stanley Cup in Hockeytown after all I did just get my second Detorit Red Wings Tattoo this time on my right arm (sorry just had to say something about that) there are still a lot of things I think the team needs to improve on going into the playoffs if they are going to have a true chance to get the Cup this season. I think being Central Division Champions again is a step in the right direction and if the Wings can just get better in certain areas they will be contenders and hopefully be more than just Division Champions this season. Let's Go Red Wings!!

What a frustrating last 3 months this has been.

#2139759 Blues fan here, can I offer some perspective?

Posted by ShakeyWalton on 31 March 2011 - 10:47 PM

Hey guys. I just got done reading the GDT from last night's game, and wanted to make a few comments.

First off, that was obviously a great game for us Blues fans to watch. To score 10 goals against any NHL team is quite a feat, but to do it to Detroit, in Detroit nonetheless, was remarkable. I must say though, that I am rather surprised at some of the comments in the GDT thread. I never thought I would see Red Wings fans question the leadership qualities of Lidstrom, or question the toughness of Franzen. There seemed to be a ton of negativity for just 1 game. For a minute there, I thought I was reading a Blues GDT.

I can understand the irrational posts after such a blowout, but you guys get a high seed in the playoffs, while we go home again. We'll trade you if you want? We have a concussed great young player that has shown no inclination that he'll be cleared to play, a very erratic goaltending tandem, players missing practices, a drunken golf cart injury that was the beginning of the end for a #1 overall, no playoffs 5 out of 6 years, and last but certainly not least, a dirt cheap payroll from an ownership that desperately wants out.

This thread was only created so that you Red Wings fans can appreciate what you have. Talk to you later and good luck in the playoffs.

No one here can honestly say that they feel comfortable with this version of the Red Wings in ANY game.

There. Fixed that for you.

No one here can honestly say that they feel comfortable with Howard in net in crucial games.

I've been saying get rid of him ever since we brought him into the coaching staff.

Isn't it odd that ever since he joined the staff that we've dropped from one of the best defensive teams in the league to one of the worst?

Same here. It's not a coincidence that our defense and PK tanked once he was brought aboard. Any team he has joined has had the exact same problem. Google it.

Get rid of him

So two years of this idiot and two years of sloppy, sloppy, play. I also heard they thought he was a idiot when he coached the defence in Atlanta. So will we see a coaching change with the defence or will Babcock keep him on staff? If he goes what are some potential replacements as I am tired Of Detroit looking so sloppy in their own end.

Howard is a horrible goalie. No way Red Wings go deep in the POs with that sieve in net.

#2015604 Tatar a regular for 2010-2011?

Oh, wow. ><


Guess I got a little excited and thought that was in GR. I'll just sit in the corner for a little while...

#1998553 Did the Hawks get a little lucky?

Posted by Broken 16 on 12 June 2010 - 11:04 AM

Every team that wins the Cup gets a little lucky. In fact, most get a lot lucky. Luck played a part in every Wings Cup.

So... yes.

#1995674 Why Holmstrom

Posted by Carman on 07 June 2010 - 06:37 AM

1. Leino was released in order to free up cap/roster for Franzen's return.
2. Holmstrom is a specialist that is the very best at what he does.
3. He can still score goals, 25 goals for under 2 million is an absolutely great deal.
4. You can not pay too much for a player like Lidstrom, especially when you aren't talking 8-10 million.

Before last year I was in the same boat as you, I didn't think Homer had a place in the top 6 due to his skating ability. But he clearly proved me wrong last year on his way to being the second leading scorer.

Lastly Steve Yzerman over Ken Holland? Damn I've probably replied to a troll. Oh well.

#1991197 SCF Game One GDT

Posted by Joseph Franks on 29 May 2010 - 07:55 PM

Best game 1 I've seen in years, for a finals. Back and forth, Philly using exactly what strategy we expected, Hawks capitalizing on their speed.....Just WOW.
