#2407249 Tortorella's public comments on Hagelin

Posted by dat's sick on 19 May 2013 - 03:14 PM

Honestly this was not that bad. He gives Hagelin a ton of compliments, "I love the guy, he does everything else well", but simply tells it like it is: "he stinks on the powerplay". He could have used other words but I like that he didn't use a lot of subtle and weak words to describe Hagelin being a bad PP guy.

Also this wasn't blaming the Rangers weak PP on Hagelin, rather answering the question why Hagelin doesn't play on the PP when it's struggling so much and he's playing great.

Not a huge fan of Torts but let's not make this into more than it is.

We are a giveaway machine tonight. More passes to Chicago players than to our own players.


Somewhat lucky Chicago's not got any real rythm going and it's still 1-1. Need to wake up while this game is still winnable.

#2400561 WCQF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Ducks 3 (OT) - (ANA leads series 3-2)

Posted by dat's sick on 09 May 2013 - 03:44 AM

I thought it was a good game, other than the 1st period Wings played well enough to win. We had a chance when we were up 2-1, we hit 2 or 3 posts and had a 5 minute PP that we wasted. I thought the penalty to Smith there was extremely weak, leading to the 2-2 goal. After that it was a one shot game, we just weren't able to get it done this time. Should have killed the game much earlier.

This has been a great series and I'm not giving up. If we take Game 6 anything can happen in a Game 7. If we had Dekeyser and Helm I would be more confident but nothing is impossible.

If we end up losing, I'll just be happy we made the playoffs and got to see a great effort by this team against a very good opponent. The experience will be worth a lot for the young guys.

That was one of the best games I've seen in a looooooooooong time. Wow. Amazing effort by the team. 

Yes we had some defensive breakdowns, yes I would have liked to see us score more goals based on all the pressure we had. 

But wow. This team. I LIKE OUR TEAM. It's not perfect, it's not always good, but it's OURS. 


How money is Nyquist in OT? How great was Howard tonight? 


What planet does Datsyuk come from????? 


I don't even need answers, I just know one thing: we have a chance in this series. Bring on Game 5 !!!

We played a great game. We definitely deserve the win. But it's a one-shot game so all bets are off. 


All I can say is that win or lose this is the kind of effort that makes me a proud fan. It's very clear we're short 1 or 2 d-men for this team to be really, really solid (basically Dekeyser and maybe one more solid guy), but that we have some great pieces. Ericsson has been magnificent this game, Kronwall's been really good. Kindl's been mostly good. Howard's played his best game of the series. Most of our forwards have been good. 


And Datsyuk. I...there aren't words to describe that guy anymore. He's special. 


Let's go Wings, I believe in you!

#2396562 WCQF Game 3 GDT - Ducks 4 @ Red Wings 0 (ANA leads series 2-1)

Posted by dat's sick on 04 May 2013 - 09:20 PM

as soon as I heard DeKeyser was out for the rest of the playoffs I got a real bad, sinking feeling


as sad as it may be, we needed him around to be a factor in these playoffs it seems


I hope I'm wrong

Like I said, we are a fragile team and we needed all our pieces and everyone of them to be playing at close to their best to have a chance of doing much in the playoffs. 


Now we lose Dekeyser, and honestly Lashoff wasn't awful until the 3rd when the team was deflated. But still, Dekeyser brought a great calming effect on our defense, nice outlet passes and just a confidence that almost no other of our d-men has. 


Also I don't have a clue why Babcock felt the need to mess with our 4th line by throwin Bert/Sammy on there. It was a complete non-factor the last 2 games. If Abdelkader is suspended I expect Bert to play instead of him on the top line, but we need Tootoo back on the 4th. 


Howard had his best game of the series and still allowed 4. Not blaming him whatsoever for tonight, but we're gonna need him to be unreal going forward.. 


I absolutely have hope, but realistically.. we shouldn't be able to win. Next year I look forward to this team with Dekeyser and Darren Helm on it.

Well basically this is a pretty fragile team. We had a lineup that worked well for us. But we lost a big part of it, Dekeyser. Also Babcock decided to insert Samuelsson? For some reason. Even inserting Bert was a questionable move imo. But Sammy? Why...

Then we lost Abdelkader in this game. 

And suddenly we're not really clicking. 


But really this game was lost on the Abdelkader hit and on Getzlaf taking advantage of Brunner being careless. 2 individual mistakes in what was otherwise a 50-50 game. 


Game 4 is a must-win. Can we do it? No Dekeyser. Abdelkader maybe suspended. Cleary not benched. Samuelsson/Lashoff in the lineup? I'm not sure..

Posted by dat's sick on 03 May 2013 - 05:24 PM

Stupid pass, hit was devastating but it looked clean. I'm totally confused by the penalty? I've never heard of a 5 minute penalty for interference??? And a game misconduct for interference? I hate those kinda hits because they can end a career legal or not.

I'm not sure how and why you posted that in this thread lol.

...Jimmy's a decent goalie.  He doesn't win you games.  He doesn't lose you games.  He's about to be way overpaid for such a goalie.  But, whatever I guess.  He's here for the next seven years.  He's decent. 



Basically you seem to think everyone either sucks or is 'decent'. 

#2388686 4/24 GDT: Kings 1 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by dat's sick on 24 April 2013 - 11:39 AM

I think it's the right move to not play Bert/Sammy even if they're cleared to play. Last couple of games, especially against Phoenix, have been some of the best hockey we've played all year and messing with the lineup now is dangerous. Both Bert and Sammy will be far from up to speed in the playoff-type hockey we need to be playing. 


The Kings don't have a lot to play for, while our lives are on the line. Also they played last night so there are no excuses tonight. Play like you did against Phoenix and this should go our way. 


I'm nervous as hell, but last game gave me a good vibe about this team. Playoffs or no playoffs this year, I'm excited about our future with guys like Dekeyser, Brunner, Nyquist etc.

Trying not to get my hopes up for the teams around us to lose.

For one, it's better to just assume they'll all win to spare the disappointment, and also I want the Wings to get in through force of their own instead of other teams failing to let us in.

But yeah, go SJ and LA.

#2387372 4/20 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Canucks 2 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 21 April 2013 - 11:03 AM

I for one am still satisfied with the way the team played their past 3 games! Let's be honest they dictated the play against Calgary and vancouver. If they keep working hard like that they will get the breaks and the puck will go in. Keep positive!

I agree, especially last night they played a great game. Everyone was hustling and the defense was solid. Loving the Dekeyser-Kindl pairing. 


Suck that we've had so many games lately where we play good enough to win but we can't get it done though. 3 shootout losses that could have been wins, that would have been 3 points more in the standings and we'd be looking much better in the standings. And a fluke loss against Calgary, 2 points gone there. There is some truth to the old saying that you make your own luck, but I wonder if there's enough time left for the luck to actually turn in the Wings favor?
