#2344100 1/21: Red Wings 4 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 21 January 2013 - 10:52 PM

I hate shootouts but I'm glad we got the extra point. Very needed. Should have managed to win the game in regulation however, we had enough chances. BJ's aren't a bad, they've been underestimated, but they are a team we need to be better than if we're gonna make the playoffs. 


Overall a MUCH better game than against the Blues, still too many defensive breakdowns, and too many penalties and bad PK. 


But there was a lot of progress made. Bottom 6 looked great imo. Cleary is the only questionmark there. Filppula was good, but needs more help. Franzen was okay but Samuelsson was the worst player on the ice. 


Top line showed moments of brilliance. Brunner had great hustle all game, got himself in a bunch of scoring opportunities and showed his amazing talent in the shootout. I think he'll very soon start putting the puck into the net during regulation as well. 

Both Datsyuk and Z have a lot more in them though. Z tried to do too much a lot of the time, maybe something he needs to shake after playing against lesser opposition all season. Great work on the Datsyuk goal though. 


On D, it was a mixed bag. Lashoff will be difficult to remove from the lineup. The fact he got so much time on the PK and in key moments of the game obviously shows Babcock immediately recognized the kid was playing more solid than most of our other guys. Quincey needs to go back to basics, Smith has some serious defensive issues to work on, and Kronwall has to simplify his game. White and Colo both were passable imo. 


Howard was solid enough, he seems to be finding his game.

Cleary, Sammy and Quincey seriously bring nothing. And I'm sad to say it but Zetterberg and Datsyuk need to step up soon. They've both been playing in europe but look out of it. Brunner I actually like.

No talk about the fact everybody freaks out every year after game 1, 2, or 3. Then they stop.. Just watch
We took a good ass beating last night

A loss is a loss. Vancouver have 2 straight losses, so do the Rangers. All we need to do is win against Columbus and we have a better record than two of the cup favorites.

Still with this s***? Holland did everything he could. And they've played 2 games.

i'll say it first. trade for Luongo!

Goalies were the least of our problems tonight. How about an offense unable to get a single good scoring chance, or a defense allowing about 4 clean breakaways?

I'm confident this is NOT a good indication of the real status of this team.

I think so. I'll be surprised otherwise.

Come on. Atleast give them 4-5 games to get their asses in gear. They may have looked like the worst team in the history of hockey tonight but atleast they can't possibly play worse?? Right?....right???

Filppula-Zetterberg-Brunner Franzen-Datsyuk-Samuelsson Or...something? Someone kill someone in the locker room. Someone hit someone. Someone get something going.

Worst game I've ever seen the Wings play. Honestly. Can we get any sustained offense going in the 3rd? Give us something to make us belive this season won't be a total trainwreck? I'm an optimist, but there's nothing here to be optimistic about..

Do you have a nationally read sports article?  No!  Are you Pierre LeBrun?  No?  Why do you dipute this man?  Just kidding.  I just went to the link to re-read it and it says link not found.  But, at least I have a witness who read it and you know I didn't make it up.  Don't know what the problem with the site is, but looks like I am back to square one with "is he eligible or not?".

Bob McKenzie actually said on twitter Brunner is too old, I still think that conflicts with the wording of the official rule but seems it's settled.

All hopes go to Smith, or possibly Nyquist if he gets called up quickly.

#2340208 Detroit Red Wings vs Grand Rapids Griffins Jan 15th @ 6pm ET

Posted by dat's sick on 15 January 2013 - 10:39 AM

Should be a great game! Is it really Griffs vs. Wings or is it both teams mixed up together as the normal Red v. White games are? Either way, I look forward to watching this. I too hope that Mrazek is in net. As a matter of fact, I cannot wait for Mrazek to seriously challenge Howard next season, possibly making Howard expendable soon...

The teams will be mixed up, both teams having some NHL and AHL lines/d-pairs.

Howard will bein goal and Gus in the other, doesn't seem like Mrazek will play. Which is fine, Howie and Gus are the ones who really need to get up to speed.

I really, really hope some awesome human being streams this.

#2321763 Predators match offer sheet to Shea Weber

Posted by dat's sick on 24 July 2012 - 11:57 PM

I dont.wanna trade Flip, but Anaheim will want him to play with.Selanne. Also, Ryan is 100,000,000 times better than Franzine....

Have you seen Ryan a lot? I've heard a lot of opinions on Ryan calling him lazy and streaky, does nothing when he's not scoring goals. Remind you of someone?

Besides, Anaheim will want more than just Flip. A lot more. In a straight up comparison, Ryan beats Franzen in most regards even though it's not by a lot. But can we improve our team by trading for Ryan? Doubtful.

#2321385 Rick Nash traded to the New York Rangers

Posted by dat's sick on 23 July 2012 - 11:49 PM

That's such a ridiculously bad roster...

It's so laughably awful. The Columbus fan is in for a rough year.

I understand Howson being reluctant to ship Nash to us, but Franzen or Filppula would atleast have helped their team NOW. Anisimov is a depth scorer like Hudler, Dubinsky is a good 3rd liner and there's a reason Erixon has changed teams more times than he's been on the ice in the NHL.

If I was the columbus fan I would have rather gotten a better return and face Nash 6 times a year than to get spare parts and a pick and not see him at all.

#2320146 Red Wings re-sign Quincey: 2-years, $7.55m total, $3.775/yr

Posted by dat's sick on 19 July 2012 - 06:52 AM

We were apparently one of 4 "big players" in a trade scenario for Weber. That was until Paul went full Holmgren and killed that possibility.

Holland is doing what he can. We were so close on Suter too. Quincey may not be "the guy", but without him our D would look even more hollow. Quincey also has some potential to be quite solid. Remember this is the guy that EVERYONE was calling Holland's worst move as a GM, letting him go.

Reasonable contract, only 2 years. Good.

#2318528 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by dat's sick on 12 July 2012 - 09:30 AM

I do like that he doesn't want to handcuff the team for years to come by for example signing a mediocre player like Carle to a long, overpaid contract. Our young guys could step up enough to atleast take us to the playoffs, and if not atleast they've gotten icetime and development.

For the life of me I still can't understand it if he doesn't atleast offer Semin a big 1-year contract. Gonne be a lot of unused cap space this year..
