Can anyone honestly question Lids retirement now?


#2275444 this team is soft

Changes will come this offseason, you will see a tougher team next season.



:lol: I remember my first beer.

Let Conklin walk home. This is an absolute disgrace. And this is a team that Ken Holland thinks is a contender?



Maybe it's because Holland has been living in Cinderellaville with fairy dust snow storms for the last few years.

this is by far NOT Conks fault, seriously. Shut the f*** up and place blame where blame is deserved.

I would pay to see Hunwick in net; however wouldn't want him to get badly embarrassed. I am a huge UM hockey fan and loved watching Hunwick play.


#2272213 Howard suffers groin injury...again.

Posted by NvrFrgtRussian5 on 20 March 2012 - 02:18 PM

I am sorry, we are done. I hate to be the pessimist, and rarely am with the Wings... but this is absurd.

I pray we don't end up in fifth place either. I think we would do better in 6th or 7th and that is where we will end up now because of these injuries. When you might have to start your fourth and fifth goaltenders weeks before the playoffs start... you are in serious trouble.

Silver lining... maybe Lids gets upset with this and comes back for sure.



If anything, Lids is going to get upset about this and hang 'em up. He is in the longest injury stint of his career and his teammates drop like flies every march. I don't forsee him sticking around to see it happen again.


#2270562 Call the team out

Posted by NvrFrgtRussian5 on 15 March 2012 - 11:44 AM

Couple of things:

1) Were the players getting tone deaf when they lost 6 in a row earlier this season? Because they managed to do pretty well after that slump.

2) If you are going to be using our record to try to show that the Wings are not a force to be reckoned with why don't you also use their home record to show that they are a force to be reckoned with, or even their over all record - they are after all 4th in the entire NHL in points. The vast majority of teams in the NHL would love to have the Wings record and would dread playing them in the 1st round of the playoff (because they are in fact a force to be reckoned with).

3) I don't have blinders on and think that "all things Red Wings[are] completely out of this world amazing[,]" however, I do think they are as good as any team in the NHL and have a legitimate shot to go deep into the playoffs. Perhaps you need to take off your blinders and realize that the sky is not falling and the Wings are in fact still a good team who are battling major player losses and playing poorly during this slump.

4) The fact that we are "sliding down in the standings" yet still have the 4th best record in the NHL is a testament to the fact that the team (when even reasonably healthy) is a very good team.


Finally, it is funny to me that the Wings players "clearly getting tone deaf" amazingly coincided with Dats, Lids, Jimmy and 4 or 5 other players all getting hurt.


First of all let me thank you for being my high school English teacher in doing a nice job correcting my grammar.

Second of all, when did I say the sky was falling? I'm not saying anything near that. What I am saying is that people need to stop being so blind to some of the continuing problems that have been occurring with this team. Everyone sees Holland as the second coming of Christ that does no wrong. Everyone seems to think that we can steam roll any team we are put in front of. I suppose that is why we have had early exits two years in a row now?

The sky isn't falling. Do I see us winning the cup? Not like this we aren't, the way we are playing currently screams of early exit, especially if we get stuck playing on the road.

The team needs to wake up. Players like Franzen need to wake up. We as Wings fans have been incredibly spoiled with our success but it has also led to the fans being completely oblivious to thinking we could ever have any issues.

Yep and someone will go down in the playoffs and they will exit that round. A team built like that is a team built to lose when it matters. A team does not give up 4 SHGs in 6 games because Dats and Lids are missing. A team does not forget how to play defense because Lids is hurt. There are bigger problems with this team than injuries.


this.

We cannot continue with this injury blaming BS. It is not helping matters but it is not the sole reason we have issues. The issues have been there before the injuries. This team just lacks urgency and consistency much of the time.

Babcock needs to find a way to light a fire. Franzen can't hit the broadside of a barn if it was 6 inches in front of him, Happy turn-over Hudler makes better tape to tape passes to the opponent.

Lids and Dats can't take the entire team on their shoulders. I really believe this is Lids final year. He is currently in the longest injury stint of his career and the team is struggling in almost all aspects.

I cannot believe that people are actually worried about some damn little number in the lower right hand corner of a post.



I actually lose sleep over them.

I can't believe we're paying Ericsson 3.5 million...

But great show up for the young guys and Brunny.
