#2359061 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by dat's sick on 21 February 2013 - 10:12 PM

Couple of things: 


* Bad turnover Brunner. I like you, but with 30 seconds left in the game, keeping the puck deep is #1 priority. Live and learn kid. 


* Why is White and Lashoff our D-men on the ice in the last minute? Ericsson?? Bad coaching. 


* Timeout should have happened a long time ago. Bad coaching. 


* What is Howard doing on the goal? Tough side-to-side play but still. Rest the guy already. Monster looks ready to play. 


* Abdelkader and Cleary. Bad coaching. 


* Zetterberg's worst game of the season, easily. 


* Tatar was maybe the best player on the ice for us. Hello Babcock??? 


Awful, awful loss. Things are starting to look rough in the standings. Not even getting a point tonight.. wow. 


Injuries aren't an excuse unless Babcock's mind has been injured which I'm starting to think. 


Desperately, desperately need to the win the next game. And the one after that. And the one after that. Sigh.

Columbus announcers sure it was an elbow from quincey

Anyone arguing it was intentional is an idiot. 


Just a terrible accident and I sincerely hope they're simply taking every precaution and he'll be okay. 


Hate, hate, hate seeing stuff like this.

If I was lucky enough to go to a Wings game and Babcock didn't screw around with the lines long enough to have those guys in the top 6, I would have no choice to stand up in the middle of the Joe and let everyone take a look at my pants tent that is a direct result of those lines destroying the other team.

I want to print this post, frame it and put it up on my wall.

Haha very nice :D 


Looking forward to the game. I have a feeling the Wings will break out of the slump with a vengeance. 


8-1 Detroit. 


Datsyuk with 7 unassisted goals and one assist from shooting the puck at Cleary in anger and it getting deflected into the net.

Lazy penalty by Fil. I liked the way Fil-Z-Brunnner looked though.

Problem is Datsyuk's linemates. Give him Tatar for pete's sake.

Please everyone appreciate the hell out of Pavel. He is one lf the most exceptional hockey players of all time. And he could be gone after next year.

Look at the two times he undressed the Preds defense and Rinne robbed him.
And the trademark steal to set up the worst player in the league for a goal.
Not to mention all his fantastic defensive work.

Damn he's good. Even when the team sucks, I can atleast get enjoyment out of watching him.

#2356334 Great Babcock quote

Posted by dat's sick on 16 February 2013 - 09:50 AM

Swedish journalist Per Bjurman was in Detroit and talking to Nick Lidstrom and Holmstrom outside the lockerrom at the Joe, when Mike Babcock came by and had this to say:

- I love you more than when you played, because now I understand how much you meant. Our f****** powerplay ... I can not get anyone to do what you did. Damn, "Homer", if I had known better maybe I would have appreciated you a bit more, he shrieks happily, unaware that it is a Swedish journalist next to them...

#2355630 For some good news....

Some of the worst special teams in the league and the most man-games lost.

With that in mind it's quite a feat we are doing as well as we are. Hopefully the team can keep improving and start getting more healthy.

Feels like he's been a non-factor for us this season. He's not been bad, and has done some good things, but overall he hasn't been an impact player for us. Which is unfortunate coming off such a fantastic season. Maybe he needs to be paired with Z again?

As for keeping him around or not, if we let him go after this year and the Datsyuk leaves after next season we'll be hurting. Fil might be expendable right now but we need to think a bit further ahead.

Not able to watch the game, but I feel like I'm getting the full experience from reading this board.

Sounds like Cleary is having a great game again. Looking forward to Babs giving him even more top 6 and PP icetime.

#2354099 Howard = Average

Posted by dat's sick on 10 February 2013 - 07:44 PM

Howard was painfully average today. Did you see those average saves he made? 


All 45 of them.

Hahaha that's Fil answering all the whiners on here.

has Kronwall 'kronwalled' anyone this year? seems like he hasn't done it even once

He's tried a couple of times. But just like with everything else he's tried this year, it hasn't worked.

Can't watch the game... :(

How Tatar/Mrazek/Tootoo are doing?

Tatar looks real good. Making solid plays both on offense and defense. Had a quick shot that Cleary got the rebound on and scored. 


Mrazek didn't have a lot to do, but had one really good reaction save and handled everything well. 


Didn't notice Tootoo much, think he was in front of the net screening the goalie on the 2nd goal though. 

#2352186 Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

Posted by dat's sick on 07 February 2013 - 05:15 AM

The idea that tatar, nyquist, andersson, abby, helm, emmerton, janorack (spelling) etc... are going to lead us to the SC is laughable. Worst part, the joke is on us......

I'm not saying I necessarily think those guys are going to lead us to a cup, but there was a time when people said Datsyuk and Zetterberg were never going to lead the Wings to a cup either. 


But you gotta be real also, Andersson, Abby, Helm and Emmerton are bottom 6 guys. Helm and Abby especially are good at it, but you don't really say Draper and Maltby lead us to cups do you? But they are important pieces, and I think Helm will be a key part of the team for a long time. Assuming he can get past his injury troubles of late. 


Tatar and Nyquist are maybe not the 2nd coming of D and Z, but they both have potential as top 6 scorers. Maybe not the guys you build your team around but still good players. 


And you are counting out Järnkrok way too early. He has a big role on his team in the SEL and is doing alright. He is very skilled and is probably the closest thing we have to a possible 'replacement' for D or Z in our own system. 

He is 9th in scoring this year, and that is on a bit of a struggling team and without last year's top scorer Silfverberg on his line. If you compare his stats to those of Zetterberg's before he came over they're very close. Whether that will translate to the same kind of NHL success is anyone's guess.
