#2604730 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by Pat on 29 April 2015 - 10:32 PM

Tortorella would honestly be a pretty good option, has the experience to back it up. Would make the postgames so much more interesting lol. 

#2588630 Is Hank too slow and ineffective to play center?

Posted by Pat on 02 April 2015 - 10:56 PM

Babcock refuses to play Datsyuk and Zetterberg on the same line except the PP and I think it's a major reason why Zetterberg has been struggling of late. Before Babcock would put Zetterberg and Datsyuk out there just to generate spark on the team but now he is shying away from that. I think we need to see more Zetterberg and Datsyuk together going forward if we want to turn this season around.

#2291934 Will Detroit win this series?

Posted by Pat on 18 April 2012 - 12:37 AM

Lol @ anyone who has 'faith' in this team. Have you not watched this team since February? They haven't beat anyone and just let the Predators have home ice. They obviously don't really want it.

Typical bandwagon fan.

#2291815 Will Detroit win this series?

Posted by Pat on 17 April 2012 - 11:02 PM

I know a 3-1 lead in a series is almost impossible to overcome, but there is something about this team that tells me they will not go down. I still have faith in this team.

During the regular season we we're incredibly streaky (both good and bad). We often found ourselves in 1-6 game slumps only to follow it up with a winning streak of our own. This gives me reason to believe that we still have a chance in this series. I know that this is the playoffs and games are 10x harder to close out and mistakes can cost you a series, but we aren't a young team. We have the experience in big games. The wings play better when there backs are against the wall and when they are on the brink of elimination. That is why I still have faith in this team.

I know these following predictions may seem lofty but I see them as entirely possible. There are too many times where a team lets off the gas pedal and can't finish. That won't be the case with Detroit, they will finish strong.

Detroit makes a statement and puts the pressure right back on Nashville.

DET [5-1] W

Nailbiter game that could go either way, but Detroit wins at home.

DET [2-1] W

This game will feature playoff hockey at its finest, with the highs and lows of everything you could imagine. Detroit wins in overtime.

DET [3-2 OT] W

Keys to Victory:
- Get the first goal
- Don't allow odd man rushes
- Limit turnovers
- Stay out of the penalty box
- Get 2nd chances on Rinne

Share your thoughts on how this series is going to turn out! (Try to stay positive and have faith)

#2280921 WhatIfSports NHL Playoff Prediction

Last year it predicted the finals correctly, however it had the Canucks winning it all.

I agree with all of the winners except maybe Pitt over Boston in the 2nd round.

I'm sick and tired of watching this team

#2271402 Helm has MCL sprain, out 4-6 weeks

Posted by Pat on 18 March 2012 - 02:52 PM

If you look at the replay of his injury very carefully you can see that the knee doesn't bend awkwardly like other ACL/MCL injuries. ACL injuries can spotted just by placing your hand on your good knee and comparing it to the bad one. I don't believe he has a tear in his knee based on the replay. I think he will be back in 2-3 weeks at the max.

#2221929 NHL Trade Deadline Predictions

Posted by Pat on 03 November 2011 - 01:17 PM

NHL Trade Deadline Predictions:

- Wings will trade for a premier top 6 forward
- Hudler will be gone
- Ericsson will be gone
- Wings will trade for a top 4 defenseman

Predicted Lineup:

Datsyuk Zetterberg Holmstrom
Parise Franzen Filppula
Bertuzzi Cleary Helm
Miller Eaves Abdelkader




Honestly I see the Wings making a big splash come the trade deadline and I don't see Ericsson or Hudler still here after. They are both under performing and not worth the roster spot at this point as they do not generate offense and are defensive liabilities. Zach Parise addresses a major flaw with his speed and goal scoring instincts, and Ryan Suter makes our Defense tougher and more responsible.

Post your predictions!

#2166591 Can The Wings Win This Series?

Posted by Pat on 04 May 2011 - 11:17 PM

Lets face it, there have been 3 times in HISTORY that a team has came back from a 3-0 deficit. (Some people say 4 teams have come back)

The Following Teams Did It:
Toronto Maples Leafs vs Detroit (1942)
New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh (1975)
Philadelphia Flyers vs Boston (2010)

The real question is...Do the wings have what it takes to make history?

My Answer Is Yes.

Here are some things that need to happen for us to win this series:
  • The Team Needs To Wake up
  • 3rd and 4th Line Scoring
  • Improved Penalty Kill
  • Momentum Shifting Moments
  • LOCKDOWN Defense
  • Intimidation
  • Coaches need to prepare the players better
  • Confuse the other team
  • OUTWORK the opposition

If we can get the breaks and take this step by step, a miracle can occur.
We will need the inspiration from someone to find a way to get ourselves out of this hole.
The only way this can happen is if the Wings play to the ability we've seen. They need absolutely flawless hockey from this point out.

My Predictions:
Game 4: Wings 3-1
Game 5: Wings 2-1[OT]
Game 6: Wings 3-0
Game 7: Wings 4-3[OT]

I've never seen such poor officiating in the playoffs when these two teams play each other. I REALLY hope Holland/Babcock says something about the officiating to set the damn refs straight. Last year this happened when they tried to draw penalties left and right, now it needs to stop. The eaves slash on Marleau was just downright pathetic and the Bertuzzi hit on Pavelski makes me want to puke with the sell job. The Wings need to get there heads out of there asses and wake up because series are won on momentum. It's time to stopf****** around and sitting back and go full out. Stop worrying about hitting and just shoot the god damn puck.

I'm waiting on you Babcock, tell the god damn media something so this gets known or this series will be over VERY quickly.
