#2652320 2/12 GDT : Colorado Avalanche at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

We seemed to be outplaying them but not showing it on the scoreboard.  C'mon ... let's pick up 2 pts here.  

#2652298 The Petr Mrazek Appreciation Thread

Posted by RedWingsRox on 12 February 2016 - 06:53 PM

Way to represent the Wings!


Petr Mrazek has crashed Braden Holtby’s Vezina party



At one point this season, quite recently, the Vezina Trophy race was a sprint to a coronation: Braden Holtby, Washington Capitals goaltender and pupil of that Netminding Yoda Mitch Korn, had the trophy in the bag.
He had the NHL lead in wins. As he did for goals-against average. As he did for save percentage.
As for Feb. 12, he still holds onto one of those leads: Wins, with 35, four more than Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks. That’s 14 more wins than Petr Mrazek of the Detroit Red Wings – Holtby has started 44 games, Mrazek has 34 – but hey would you look at that: The Red Wings goalie leads the NHL in save percentage (.934) and GAA (1.94) heading into Friday night’s game hosting the Colorado Avalanche.*

#2651746 9 (NINE!) player trade involving Phanuef

Posted by RedWingsRox on 09 February 2016 - 04:49 PM

Toronto found a dance partner that didn't ask Toronto to eat some of Phaneuf's salary.   Good for them.  


Babcock and Lamoriello played the "inflate a player's performance so we can get more from a trade" perfectly.   


Looks like we'll be the first to welcome Phaneuf in a Sens jersey on Wed.  

#2649860 1/23 GDT : Anaheim Ducks at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Just saw highlights ... one or two of the goal is on Howie but hey, that's hockey.  


Stats don't lie.  In terms of game distribution, Mrazek is the starter.  He played 32 vs. Howie's 18.  Time to make it official if it isn't already.  

#2643523 12/18 GDT : Vancouver Canucks at Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 EST

I was afraid this might happen ... easy pickin 2 pts usually turn out to be a disappointment.  Outshot 27 to 10 in the first 2 periods ??!!   Only positive, great tying goal by the Euro Twins.  


Relieved that we got one ... but once we tied it, with the fragile mental state of Canucks, we should have been able to win it in OT or shootout.

Thank you Colorado!

#2642462 12/11 GDT : Red Wings at New Jersey Devils, 7:00 EST

Posted by RedWingsRox on 12 December 2015 - 12:49 AM

Oh well, you win some and you lose some.  Would have been nice if they could have kept the 2-0 lead to get the W but 3 points out of 4 in 2 back to back is fine.  

#2641542 This is good ... Griffins' got moves !

#2633824 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by RedWingsRox on 28 October 2015 - 04:36 PM

Blashill is not going anywhere, he'll be here for the FULL season regardless of the standing.  Holland will at least give him that long of a leash.  Blash has it within him, he has to adjust, the team has to adjust.  Calm down.

It's hard to see the team peak in game 1 and go downhill from there!

#2614232 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by RedWingsRox on 13 June 2015 - 07:44 PM

Sharp with an empty net goal at 6:11 in the 1st period.

C'mon boys, tie it up and win this.  You cannot lose to the Van farm team!



Damn .. it's over.  Too bad for Blash that he can't go out a Cup winner.

Do we still promote Blashill if he loses Calder Cup?  

#2608796 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by RedWingsRox on 20 May 2015 - 12:04 PM

Bit of a shocker, all along it was Det and Buff ... now this morning, Det and Buff are out and it is Leafs, Blues, or Sharks ??!!


Out of those 3, I think Blues would be his best option if he truly wants to win now.  Shocked that Toronto is still in the mix.  

#2608635 Question for the Board regarding Babcock

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 May 2015 - 05:27 PM

Did we really need 2 threads on Babcock?  Isn't one enough?
