Once again, thanks Ken Holland for years of sitting back doing nothing and not having a plan in place for when Nick retired...thanks buddy! :thumbs-up: 




#2303905 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by Scrappy's Servant on 30 May 2012 - 04:05 PM

Why all this doom and gloom? Sure, it'll be tough to transition, but it's manageable. Kronwall is still here, Smith looked fantastic, Ericsson improved by leaps and bounds last year. Add Suter, and that's a better D-corps than most other teams can ice.

Not trying to be doom and gloom, just moreso frustration that in my opinion, we'll have to sit through another rough year next season of subpar defense. I just don't trust the likes of Ericsson, Kindl, & Quincey to not still have 30 or so mental breakdowns a night sadly...

How does losing lidstrom and signing suter make us so much more terrible... Believe it or not but suter is an upgrade to lidstrom

Cause I've seen how Suter can be..he feeds off of Weber...both Weber & Suter have made each other what they are. Suter is in no position to just come and assume the role of top d-man anywhere right now...but that's just my take..we need at least 2 more FA defensemen to help us...but nobody is out there sadly.

First off, one of the greatest human beings to ever play the game, thanks Nick for all the memories you've given us over the years!

This is what Ken Holland gets for having no Plan B in place for when Nick ever decided to call it quits. Even IF they sign Suter...they still need another 2 or 3 top notch D-Men that are nowhere to be found. People like Kindl, Ericsson, & Quincey sure as hell aren't gonna improve any to get the job done...ugh...and people thought our D-Core looked awful last year?...just wait.

Anybody else tired of seeing our 5 guys in our D-zone all clumped up together watching the other team just skate all around them while they watch??? Ugh...never changes...


#2279882 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by Scrappy's Servant on 07 April 2012 - 03:56 PM

Datsyuk has Rinne's number. Red Wings are going to school Nashville... Preds are out of their league agaisnt a superior and veteran DRWs.

I guess you don't know too much about Nashville then...they live to do ANYTHING better then the Wings...I assure you they will be 100 times more geared up for this series then we will, we are "The Bar" so to speak as to where they wanna be..and keep in mind they are starting at home in front of their fans who feel the same way..Nobody is gonna "school" anybody in this series. Heck, they are more then thrilled just to finally finish ahead of the Wings for the first time ever, it's a big deal to them.

It all depends which Wings team shows up that will decide the series...if its the team that was playing as hard during the home record streak then I like our chances...if its the team thats been around since after the streak thinking they can just flip a switch whenever they want to start playing, then it will be a short series for us.

This is why it's sad that for our D...nobody other than our 40 year old Captain knows how to play actual Defense....thanks again Kenny!

This team isn't one to learn from past mistakes...they seem to enjoy making them over and over again for some reason...they can't play for only 1 period and expect 2 points..especially when every point up until playoffs are huge points!

Anybody else frustrated that this team has yet to learn how to NOT look so disinterested in playing teams with a lot worse records than them???

All I ask is that we score more goals than them, and somebody, please, just please, repeatedly punch Jordin Tootoo in the face.

I'm lookin' at you, big guy:

He'll be too busy turning the puck over or having his back to puck while others skate around him sadly... :lol:

Always love it when the Wings are here in town...should be a heck of a game since the Preds always seem to bring their A game whenever they are here.

Keep the W train rollin..gotta keep up with the rest of the West.

Go Wings!!!
