#2302553 What's the point of the crease?

Posted by cnot19 on 22 May 2012 - 05:27 AM

The most important thing about the crease is that it tells goalies where they are in the net. It helps them with angles and how far they should come out to challenge the shooter.

Add Parise, Konopka, and Prust


#2291865 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by cnot19 on 17 April 2012 - 11:30 PM

Yes. We need a speed energy line with guys like Helm, eaves, and Abdelkader. Then a 4th line of grinders like Prust, and Konopka, etc. We need to be tough to play against again.


Not only do i think this would help us be a more complete team, but we wouldnt look dead when we lose. SOmetimes when the wings lose I am simply embarrassed and they should be too, real fourth line guys never quit and always bring 110%. Just from an entertainment standpoint it would be an upgrade, but adding to our fourth line would certainly round our team out.

Add a top line scorer, then increase the size and nastiness of the bottom six. guys like prust, martin neil. The bottom six needs an identity, something it does very well, not this mishmash of players who suck, and do nothing overly well. Please bring in guys who will hit the hell out people, grind along the boards, inflict some pain on the other team. Our fourth line has becaome a ground for spare parts, not the true fourth line guys who actually bring one great aspect to the table!

Eh, agree to disagree. Hindsight is 20/20. You've convinced me what Holland should have done, but I'm not compelled that he made the wrong choice giving the circumstances at the time


I think this is a fundamental difference between alot of people. Id rather have a great player than two good players, good players are much much easier to come by, especially guys like Hudler. Either way youre right hindsight is 20/20 I was hoping wed get Hossa at all costs even if it meant franzen and hudler, but it went the other way. I always prefer the top player available because the second and third tier guys are easy to replace.

I dont see much positive about this postseason, besides Ericsson. Hes looked very good out there, taking the body, taking hits to make plays, and not turning anything over. Hes had some offensive chances as well, hopefully he can start to convert on some of those.

Ive never been a fan of Holland, and this solidifies my stance. You need to step up and take some sort of chance or risk with contracts whether its overpayment or not, this team had a clear hole and he didnt fix it

#2286187 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by cnot19 on 14 April 2012 - 12:52 AM

i wish we could just add a guy like Chris Neil or George Parros to our team for next year, someone who could have made weber pay. Anyway, Id like to throw some love Bert's way Im glad he tried to do something about it, would have liked to see some more pain inflicted, but this at least shows the wings have some balls. Just a side note could you imagine the carnage if Bob Probert was still with the wings? As always makes me miss the old days of wings hockey. Good win tonight hope everyone had a good night!

I want George Parros, Matt Martin, and Brandon Prust next year, that is all.


#2284268 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by cnot19 on 13 April 2012 - 09:58 AM

Pisses me off too, but with Zetterberg successfully freeing the puck along the boards, half the team probably didn't even see it when it happened. On top of that, who was on the ice that could have done jack? There are really only a handful of teams in the league that have a big snot-rockin' guy on the same unit you put on the ice to tie a game late. Bertuzzi was really the only one on the ice who could have done anything, and to his credit, he was trying to get at Gaustad for trying to start s*** with Datsyuk.

I agree with your sentiment, but there really wasn't anything that could have been done in that circumstance at the end of the game last night. The real frustration is the unlikeliness of something coming of it tonight when they would have a chance.


Agreed, it definitely looked like most of the wings had their backs turned and did not see it. However, I would love to Ericsson or Bertuzzi challenge him tonight, I know its a pipe dream but it certainly make me feel better exacting some revenge. A time like this would be ideal to have someone like Dmac or Downey to insert into the lineup.

Posted by cnot19 on 13 April 2012 - 09:25 AM

Zetterberg is ok so im over it. However I want to chime in about everyone complaining about how dirty he is, what an idiot he is, disgrace to capitancy blah blah blah. You guys do relize this is hockey right? Almost every captain in this league has a little dirtiness and snarl to them except for ours. I would welcome Weber to our team with open arms, maybe a few players would be more esitant to snow shower Jimmy or run roughshod down low.


#2278059 Welcome Back Mule!

Posted by cnot19 on 04 April 2012 - 10:55 PM

Franzen - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Filppula - Zetterberg - Hudler
Nyquist - Helm - Cleary
Miller - Abdelkader - Holmstrom



i say replace holmstrom with mursak/conner that line would look alot better with a healthy eaves


#2275441 Nyquist needs to stay here

Posted by cnot19 on 29 March 2012 - 01:38 PM

Sometimes it seems the Red Wings are the only team where you dont have to keep your spot in the top 6 with good play. There are always guys that will be no matter how much effort they put forth. As I hockey player this idea truly bothers me, its awful to see teammates float and you bust your ass constantly and not get rewarded while they do. Nyquist should not be on the fourth line, he has no place there.


#2275439 this team is soft

Posted by cnot19 on 29 March 2012 - 01:33 PM

goalie gets ran, and getting our asses kicked by the worst team in the league and no one is angry enough to go after the guy. This is hockey, and its infuriating that this team is filled with wimps.


Nothing new here and I agree 100%, but this conversation is going to go nowhere good
