#2452989 11/12 GDT : Jets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by SDavis35 on 12 November 2013 - 05:16 PM

Zetterberg n Datsyuk really havent been producing. Id say their best years are obviously behind them.

Next year resign our top stars. Cleary-Sammy-Quincey. Hello Stanley Cup. And its that easy folks.

 

Read that first line and thought you were another nay-sayer... that second line cleared things up. 




#2450119 Helm in, Franzen out against the Oil tonight!

Posted by SDavis35 on 02 November 2013 - 03:36 PM

why would he be out if it weren't for poor play? Plenty of other bottom sixers that would normally and usually get sat out for a returning player... Usually Franzen dtsys in. I hope this is a long benching....

 

Could still be feeling sick after leaving last night's game?

Well, 2 for 2 is fairly effective... 




#2421773 Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

Posted by SDavis35 on 24 June 2013 - 02:22 PM

My decision is to walk out of the office. I just can't justify any of those trades, regardless of the fact that it's the best player in today's game. 




#2416260 Wow... Danny Cleary

"Holland also said today that Jimmy Howard played with a pulled hamstring at the end of the Anaheim series."

 

Another warrior for us. I know it's not as serious as some of the other injuries, but to play as well as jimmy did says a lot. 




#2407102 WCSF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Blackhawks 1 - (Series Tied at 1)

Posted by SDavis35 on 18 May 2013 - 10:01 PM

I don't remember any specific plays that were blatant penalties by the Wings that got overlooked. If you have the puck and are controlling play more, the less likely you are to commit infractions. Toews should know this on a puck possession team.

This was just one team being far better than the other. The refs influence outcomes all too often in the NHL these days, but it's silly to claim a little physical play prevented Chicago from winning. Toews doesn't care that Shaw skates around like an idiot though nearly every shift?

 

CBC was replaying the "should've been called" highlights several times, and Zetterberg was rough on Toews, but nothing that deserves a playoff penalty (probably not even a regualr season call). It's a part of the game, Holmstrom made a career off taking far worse clobberings. 




#2402018 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Posted by SDavis35 on 10 May 2013 - 11:35 PM

OH MAN! I was on the NHL site RIGHT before coming here and it said Anaheim won the series 4-2.... Way to give me a heart attack!

 

Haha, not only did we beat the Ducks tonight, we also beat the NHL! :P 




#2393152 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by SDavis35 on 01 May 2013 - 12:36 AM

That being said, YES. The Ducks are not a scary team. 2 Powerplay goals & an open netter. Half our team played their 1st playoff game. Mule & Abby need to bring what they did last week. if that happens & we stay out of the box, we'll be alright

 

Don't count on that one... the way the refs were calling penalties tonight it's anybody's guess when they'll make the call. We got away with several, Ducks got bad calls, Wings could've had a couple more PPs and the penalties that were missed were atrocious! Then they call little ones as if they're trying to please the fans... make the right call the first time! It's elementary my dear (Brad) Watson! 

 

As for the way we played... sloppy all around. I like the third line still and don't want to screw with that, but Filpulla needs to show up. Howard did okay, he wasn't really tested a whole lot until late game. He also didn't look like last week's goaltender. Z and Dats were totally neutralized, but I expect them to bounce back (as I do with Howard).  If not for the really bad penalties, I think we could have squeaked out a win, the teams showed they're equals, the difference was the momentum killing Tootoo trip and Kindl's delay of game.

Booyah! Now lets take it to the preds with this same mentality!!!

 

Can we take care of the Kings first please? 




#2384940 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Posted by SDavis35 on 14 April 2013 - 09:10 PM

It was basically a 1-0 game which means: a) we suck at scoring, and b) team needs a shutout to win

 

I disagree that this was a 1-0 game. Rinne made a few huge saves that we had a legitimate chance to score on. We still suck at scoring, but I'm hoping we can get that going for the next 22-34 games. 

 

And Franzen scored with a goalie in net. 2-0 game + the EN. 




#2382662 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by SDavis35 on 10 April 2013 - 07:30 AM

During the course of this season there have been several posters who have criticized this team's Coach, GM, Owner and all of the players (if not most of them). So, it got me to wondering: Why do you cheer for the Red Wings? 

 

 

For me, I cheer for this team because of the character of the organization. From Illitch to Holland to Babcock and all the players.  There is something about the members of the organization that seems to come across as competitive, yet humble. We have had some great players and some great success, and now in facing adversity, the players, Babcock, Holland and Illitch all seem to still be focused on winning. 

 

So why do you root for the Red Wings? 




#2376546 Crosby left the game after puck to the face

Posted by SDavis35 on 30 March 2013 - 05:39 PM

The well wishes are appreciated, I'm actually pleasantly surprised to see that. There's a number of players in the league that I'm not a fan of but wouldn't want to see them hurt. For me personally I can't get too worked up about what people say about a player but I draw the line at injuries. They're still living, breathing human beings.

 

From all I've heard his teeth pretty much just got annihilated, the surgery was for his teeth (yes, many "oral" jokes abound) Didn't hear anything about a break in the jaw (that is what worries me most right now) but they would likely want to take precautionary measures with the concussion as well though I am hoping that's not going to be an issue.

 

The guy may as well just go and make the full turn to heel and just come back with a damn grill, hopefully that's all it will come to.

That pic just cracked me up! Hope he's not out too long, he's had it rough with head injuries.

Would love to see it happen vs. Minnesota.

 

"Goal scored by number 8 Justin Abdelkader! *crowd cheers* assist by number 13 *crowd erupts* Pavel Datsyuk!"
