#2368369 3/13 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Flames 5

I like that Datsyuk isn't stuck with 4th liners anymore.


They need to start putting together some wins, the West is just getting tighter and tighter.

#2365743 Datsyuk - Cleary - Abdelkader

Posted by hooon on 06 March 2013 - 02:16 PM

Yeah this line needs to go. I know we are thin because of injuries but there are options out there.


I don't see why Z has both Franzen and Brunner on his wing. Let Franzen play with Datsyuk, and then preferably throw Tatar on that line. Franzen-Datsyuk-Tatar sounds a whole lot better than Clearly-Datsyuk-Abdelkader. I'd love Nyquist to be called up for a spot on that second line with Z and Brunner, and then when Fil comes back he slots into that spot.


I hate being one to pretend I know more than an NHL coach, but this line is just frustrating to watch and it is getting a little baffling as to why it is still together when everyone can pretty plainly see it isn't working.

#2362728 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 2 at San Jose Sharks 1 (SO)

Just don't have a good feeling about this one after last night.



Unbelievable that Datsyuk is stuck with 4th liners. Abby and Cleary are so insanely ineffective in scoring roles it's maddening to watch. I can't believe Babs won't even put AT LEAST Franzen or Tatar somewhere on that line. Pavel is amazing, and can do almost everything by himself, but it makes it a lottttt easier to have someone halfway competent on a line with him, and at this point I would rather ANY two forwards on the team (hell most Dmen too) be on Datsyuk's line over 8 and 11. 


Big win needed, get it done boys.

Thanks refs.



#2357503 Minnesota's Devin Setoguchi faces discplinary hearing for hit on Q

Posted by hooon on 19 February 2013 - 12:31 PM

This brings up memories of that officiating travesty playoff round against San Jose a few years ago. Remember when Setoguchi high sticked Franzen in the face, drew blood, and they gave the penalty to Franzen instead of Seto?


This guy is a POS, its a shame the rules in the NHL are so pointlessly written that when a player gets fined the "maximum amount" it equates to less than a slap on the wrist.

#2340480 TooToo - the lovable little Tasmanian Devil

I've loved the Tootoo signing since day one. 


Best of luck to him, I think he'll be great on our fourth line.

#2338626 Will anyone score 50 this year?

Posted by hooon on 08 January 2013 - 06:14 PM

Yeah 50 is insane. No one will get 40 either. Even 30 is a lot. I think maybe only 1 or 2 players get 30.

#2335063 New fan.. need advice

A new fan during the lockout?

This pleases Gary Bettman.

#2333977 Filppula out 6-8 weeks with sprained MCL

Posted by hooon on 13 November 2012 - 06:13 PM

I don't like this news at all.

The Wings can't even stay healthy when there's no season.

#2323715 Our Current Defense / What Holland Can Do *merged

Posted by hooon on 03 August 2012 - 10:50 AM

I would hardly call Franzen "expendable".

He is tradeable, yes, but if the Wings lose him to improve the D, they have literally NO one to replace those goals. Streakiness aside, 25-30 goals is not easy to replace. Its not like the Wings signed an elite scorer this off season.

Unless a lot of scoring is coming back the other way in a trade, the Wings need Franzen this year.

Darren Helm would have Gretzky-like numbers if he ever hit the net. Just sayin.

#2321087 Holland losing his moxie? Is Detroit slipping as UFA destination?

Posted by hooon on 23 July 2012 - 12:10 AM

If Lidstrom hadn't retired no one would even be questioning him. So we lose one Dman to retirement and another to uncontrollable family circumstances. How does that in any way reflect upon his abilities as a GM?

#2319551 Semin

Posted by hooon on 17 July 2012 - 11:00 AM

Oh dear Im being tracked Auntie D on the interwebs, Ill be there!

Back on topic I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign in the khl either but I hope he comes here:)

It does seem like if Kenny hasn't signed him yet, it is getting less likely he will. Even with the unstable CBA situation, signing Semin still seems like a complete no brainer to me. Wings still have a mountain of cap space, even if the cap drops fairly significantly. With a one year deal, there's very very low risk involved, but I'm not an NHL gm and in Kenneth, I still trust.

I'm willing to accept that the defense will not be as good as it was last year, but only if the Wings improve in other areas.

I DO think that our goaltending situation is the best it has been in years, especially if Jimmy stays healthy.

And I'm in the minority that actually believes our forward group improved somewhat (Sammy>Hudler, Tootoo>Holmstrom), but so far not enough to negate the deficits on defense, which is why we need that an impact scorer like Semin (or Doan, or both ;)).

#2319298 The biggest difference in the Nashville series

Posted by hooon on 15 July 2012 - 01:21 PM

Goaltending is waay waaay down on the list of reasons why we the Wings lost that series.

#2317594 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by hooon on 10 July 2012 - 02:06 AM

Lol. You couldn't possibly be anymore of a joke if you tried. Can't wait to see the Wild miss the playoffs again.
