For some reason, I'm not that worried, I think they can pull it out ... I believe.  Let's go boys ... focus.  You are the Wings

I got a good feeling about this one.  We will leave Anaheim with a split.

Great job to keep the streak alive !!!  22 years in a row baby!




#2390570 4/27 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Stars 0

Posted by RedWingsRox on 27 April 2013 - 12:38 PM

This feels almost like a game 7 of a series.  Pretty pumped, our boys showed that they can do it for the past 3 games.  Only X factor is a relatively 'new' goalie ... sometimes in their debut, they play lights out.  But if we pepper him with 35+ shots, we should pull out the win.  

 

I hope they pull the goalie if we're tied with a couple of minutes left, makes it easy for us to score the EN.  How about if we are winning by 3+ goals, we pull the goalie in the last 30 seconds to try to run the score on them to say screw you !

 

Actually, I'm cheering for Colorado to play spoiler.  Would love to see Minny get 9th and Columbus makes it in at 8th.  Seeing how they came out last night 'gainst Edmonton ...didn't think they could lose 2 in a row but it could be a very real possibility.  




#2387655 nhl.com calls Kenny the best GM

Holland was the best GM in the mid 1990's to 2010 era.  He is a bit behind the 'best GM's' in the 2011 and beyond period.

Sport's announcer"s keep saying game after game it seems that the wing's are struggling to find the back of the net. 

 

 We found the back of our own net just fine ... 2x.

If we end up in 9th spot, I want Babcock to make the team watch this game's video in its entirety before letting them go for the season.  




#2385035 Tambelinni fired, MacTavish new Oiler GM...Scott Howson new Sr VP

Posted by RedWingsRox on 15 April 2013 - 11:46 AM

You mean the competitive team that is giving the Wings a run for their money? Don't forget, the current BJ team was built almost entirely by Howson. I'm not saying the guy's a genius or anything, but maybe in retrospect, he's a better hockey mind than most were giving him credit for.

 

Really ??  They had Brobovsky a supposed Vezina candidate when Howson was around?  I don't remember that.  Isn't he like one of the major reasons why CBJ is in the race at all?  Didn't Howson fire Hitchcock who seems to be doing well in St. Louis?  Signed Wisniewski for $7m?  Rick Nash episode.  

 

I don't think he is the worst GM like Sather or Garth Snow but his name might be mentioned next in line.

This isn't April 1st, right?  Wow .... 

Why Scott Howson, didn't he make a mess in Columbus?




#2383580 4/11 GDT : Sharks 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 11 April 2013 - 10:24 PM

Just checked boxscore ... we were leading 2-1 at one point, that's good.  They got a shorthanded goal, that's not good.  We got a point, that's good.  We didn't get two, that's not good.  




#2383077 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by RedWingsRox on 11 April 2013 - 05:34 PM

All of my friends (mostly Leaf fans) are already claiming the streak is finally coming to an end. I really want to make the playoffs.
It might be my homer glasses, but I think if we sneak in 8th we can upset the Blackhawks.
Here's hoping!

 

I hope we make it in to keep the streak alive but c'mon ... really?  Beat Chicago, you guys are really homeres.  If we do make it in at 8th spot, it will be a very very quick exit, maybe in 5 ... or 4.  




#2382211 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

I'm beginning to think that only missing the playoffs will jar management into seeing how serious our decline has been just over the past 3 years.  

 

Those kinds of off season moves or resigning (Bertuzzi, Samuelsson, Colaiacovo, Quincey - totalling $10.5 million) were terrible decisions, and sorry Holland but it ain't getting it done!

 Just checked the standings today.  Before trade deadline, I was pretty confident that we would make it in but today not very confident at all.  Edmonton is getting hot.  We know what St. Louis did to bolster their roster.  Columbus added a piece and can get streaky.  There is always Nashville.  This might be the year that our guys get the longest summer ever.  Holland didn't do enough.
