#2511396 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Posted by dat's sick on 19 April 2014 - 09:12 AM

It almost looks like Franzen is telling Datsyuk "...dude, you scored!". Dats was soooo chill after that goal. No big deal, been scoring those goals for a decade.. 


Babcock deserves a ton of credit, he got the guys ready and playing exactly the kind of game they need to play against the Bruins. Now we have at the very least a split in Boston which is a great result to take back to Detroit. 

#2509390 Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

Posted by dat's sick on 13 April 2014 - 03:11 PM

Both of them look great. Oullet the more steady, reliable of the two but Sproul looks like a potential elite d-man in a few years. Size, skating, skill, shot, physical play.. yep.

#2508435 Nyquist since Datsyuk's Return & Unnatural NHL Development

Posted by dat's sick on 10 April 2014 - 09:32 AM

4 games without a goal? Trade him.

He was crazy hot. He cooled off. That doesn't mean he's been bad, just means he hasn't scored everytime he's touched the puck. There is absolutely zero reason to worry about Gus. He played amazing with Z, so I doubt having our stars in the lineup hurts him.

Chill, and realize how ridiculous he has been for it to be a concern that he hasn't scored in 4 games.

Smith, Lashoff and Kindl. If only we would have upgraded one of these liabilities. Of course Smith is not going anywhere.

At least one of them is out if Ericsson comes back.

Datsyuk and Alfie out? Awesome.

Saying "Datsyuk out" makes it sound like he hasn't been out for a long time and is ALMOST BACK. 


I have a good feeling about this game. Or maybe it's just the feeling of finally playing a game that doesn't feel like a complete must-win. We're in a solid position, even with a loss tonight. And a win would to me feel like almost locking up a playoff spot.

Those percentages change so fast. This team can easily lose the next two games. Tampa and Boston. I don't care about what are odds are, until we're actually IN every game will have me a nervous wreck.

Hopefully this game serves as a wake-up call. If so, I'm ok with it.


I'd actually consider scratching Franzen and giving Jurco his spot.



This board man.... wow. Franzen had an okay game. Not great, but probably the best player on that line. Alfredsson was awful, Legwand invisible. But even so, none of them come close to the horrific play of Bertuzzi. I assume Callahan is out if Jurco is in, but I'd rather see Bert gone. He is so obviously done as a hockey player, there's nothing left in his tank.

I was very happy to get a point out of this one. It was fairly obvious the team didn't have it today, we looked slow and tired and Minnesota looked hungry. 


Huge games coming up. We're in a decent position, but a lot will be determined in the next 4-5 games.

Pathetic beyond words. Dallas Eakins is the biggest joke in the league.

#2498795 Bruins are the first to clinch a PO spot

Posted by dat's sick on 22 March 2014 - 02:45 AM

Wow, wonder how that feels. We can't even win 3 straight.

They're, as usual, the team to beat in the East.

This game might have been the most impressive Gus has played. He was actually a dominant player out there, and we were playing one of the top teams in the league. 


Setting up the OT goal by knocking Malkin down and creating a turnover is just epic.

Ya win some ya lose some. A couple of wins and we're back in the wild card. Playoff race is far from over.

Agreed. But this team hasn't won 3 in a row for about 3 months. "A couple of wins" is HARD for this team, and it's looking unlikely to get easier. 

Columbus is a red-hot team and will probably keep climbing. So hopefully we can beat other teams and get into the playoffs somehow. Just seems like this is the year where we've had one bad break too many though. 


Early season mis-management ruined what could have been a solid start and since then injuries have piled up. With Nyquist since Day 1, could we have had 2 points more? 4? 6 or even 10? All those OT and SO losses, maybe some of them would have been wins? We wasted time and it's catching up now.

Usually I wouldn't write this team off for making the playoffs, but without Z for 7-8 weeks, I'm not liking our complete lack of leadership.  Alfredsson's been a sleeper since the Olympics ended, Ericsson's been terrible, Kronner's been on-off-on-off...  Howard has been bad this year.  Dats is gone for 2 more weeks.  


Basically without Z, our team is like an Army without their General.

There's a pretty good chance Dats is gone for way more than that. They're waiting 3 weeks to see if there's any chance he doesn't need surgery. Because if he does, that's his season. 


We're facing healthy teams playing at 110% trying to make the playoffs. We're broken down, playing with plugs, losing new guys every game, shuffling lines, playing kids... and like you say, we are without our two leaders. The two guys that can carry this team through most things. 


A miracle is what can save the playoffs streak now, nothing else.

I'm just done with this season. The hockey gods are taking a dump on Detroit this season.

This is honestly how I feel too. Enough is enough. 20 years of success have been channeled into giving the Wings 1 year of nothing going right. It's gone way beyond "fire the trainers" or "we're old and fragile". Everyone gets injured, all the time, in every possible way. 


If we make the playoffs it will be the biggest miracle in the modern hockey era.
