#2373979 3/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Coyotes 2

Come on Flip. You gotta score there.


Looked like he was aiming for the goalie.


#2373926 Most Popular NHL Teams in Sweden

I would say Red Wings and Canucks have the biggest following/media-exposure in Sweden.. after that it's close between Pittsburgh, NYR, Toronto.

 

Colorado had a lot of fans in late 90s and early 00s, but that's pretty much all died out.  




#2373441 10/24 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Ducks 1

Posted by dat's sick on 24 March 2013 - 09:55 PM

We didn't have much after the 1st period offensively, and made a ton of defensive mistakes and gave the puck away constantly. 


Luckily we have Howard. For all those who say "elite goalies should be able to steal a game for their team, therefore Howard is not elite"... well, I give you exhibit A. Not that it's the first time Howard's done it, far from. 

 

Huge points. We need to keep rolling so Holland feels comfortable making a splash at the deadline.

Abdelkader is back to Abdelkading after beasting for one game. 

 

Datsyuk oozes quality in everything he does. I'm back to being annoyed he doesn't get enough help on his line. 




#2372474 3/22 GDT: Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 1, Abs nets 1st career Hat Trick

Posted by dat's sick on 23 March 2013 - 12:45 AM

I've got a great feeling about it.
5-1 Wings. Brunner x2, Z, Mule and Smith.

Well I got the scorers wrong but I don't feel too bad about that lol.


#2371845 Why the Red Wings should be sellers this year

Posted by dat's sick on 21 March 2013 - 04:21 PM

Don't they say every year it's a deep draft? And even when they don't, I'm sure guys picked late still have become very good players. There are no sure things in the draft unless you're picking top 10. Maybe even top 5 or top 3.

Wings won't be picking that low anyway, so it doesn't make sense to abandon this year for a mid-to-late 1st round pick. Playoffs are a crapshoot and no matter what the pessimists on this board say, if the Wings get in and get hot, they could make a run.


#2369372 3/15 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Oilers 2 (OT)

Posted by dat's sick on 15 March 2013 - 05:09 PM

If Babs sat Tootoo on purpose, I wish I knew his reasoning.  He has more heart on a given shift than most of the more veteran Wings.

I've given up on trying to make sense of Babcock's lineup decisions this season. There is no rhyme or reason to any of it.

This game needs to be a win. Badly. And we need to score more than 2 goals. I'd like to see Brunner get one, as well as Pav, Z and anyone in the bottom 6.


#2367642 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 10 March 2013 - 06:53 PM

No Tatar in OT or SO.

Thanks Babcock.

Awful 2 games. This team is so hard to get a handle on. Feels like Filppula is definitely needed to kick Abby/Cleary out of the top 6. Z also needs to find his game or rest if he's injured, he was awful tonight except for like 1 great shift in OT.


#2367468 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Zetterberg must be playing hurt. He's looked very sluggish and making mistakes for a while now.

We are horrible against Columbus.. can't wait for the season series to be over.


#2364444 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

Posted by dat's sick on 03 March 2013 - 05:25 PM

Why stop at three?

 

Power Forward - Power Forward - Power Forward

Power Forward - Power Forward - Power Forward

Power Forward - Power Forward - Power Forward

Power Forward - Power Forward - Power Forward

Dan Cleary - Danny Cleary - Danny boy

Cleary - Danny C - Daniel Cleary

Ol' Danny Cleary - Clears - Danny

Dan C - #11 - Danny "All heart" Cleary




#2364431 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

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

georgemalik: Dunno if y'all caught this: Mike Stone asked Babcock if he's thought of putting Tatar/Andersson with Datsyuk. Babs' response? "No."

georgemalik: It was on WXYT: Babs said he felt that team had a "lack of depth up front" & Stone asked about Tatar/Andersson w/ 13. "NO." End of presser.

 

Babcock has lost his mind. Though Malik speculates as to the reason this is going on and makes some interesting points, but still. 
 
CRAZY.

Can't believe Crawford this season..


#2363963 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Thing is, that in spite of not getting at least three calls (two trips, one high stick), our boyz are picking up their game as a TEAM, and finally playing like they are thinking about meaning it.  GO, WINGS!!!  


I like the 'compete level', it's just frustrating to see our best offensive player be handcuffed when we desperately need scoring.


#2363938 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 03 March 2013 - 02:09 PM

Who plays the net front role better on that second PP than Abby?
 
I like how the Chicago player jumping between the benches negates the too many men penalty.

Franzen or Andersson. Or Tootoo. Or my mother.

But that's besidea the point. It's 5-on-5 Abdelkader and Cleary are bringing down our offense. Don't you see how they lose every puck battle along the boards? How they dump the puck when Pavel wants a pass, and pass when they should dump? How they're too slow to keep up with the play, don't shoot the puck well enough to take any advantage of Pavel's passes...

Babcock has got to see this. Or his assistant coaches. If nothing happens in the 3rd... wow. Tatar or Franzen needs to be put with Pav. Tatar preferably.


#2363898 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 03 March 2013 - 01:59 PM

I'm sorry, but I won't stop complaining about Abby and Cleary until one or both of them are off Pavel's line (and the PP).

It's costing us offensive zone play, Datsyuk magic, points...
