#2491097 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 05 March 2014 - 05:46 PM

Usual spins from Ken's writers.You don't need to be a scout to realize Jarnkrok's better

 

 

If it's obvious that Jamkrok is better, then why hasn't he been up here instead of Anderson?

Considering how often prospects don't pan out, I'm not too upset with expending them for proven resources.

One more thing.  This team lacks an identity.  What are we supposed to be?  We're not a puck possession team.  We're not a physical grinding team.  We're not a solid defensive team.  We're not a speedy team.  We're just kind of a mix of things that averages out into nothing.

Wow Jersey Wing.  That camera of yours in incredible those pictures are fantastic!




#2461767 Howard = Average

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 06 December 2013 - 09:46 PM

My opinion is that Howard is a bad sport. I haven't seen many goalies throw fits or break their stick because they miss the puck. I think he's

too immature to play with the big boys.

When he missed 3 quick goals last year, he claimed to have lost his vision.....kids stuff

Lot's of goalies break sticks and throw tantrums.  That doesn't mean anything.

Wow.  Don't want to take anything away from the Wings but the refs flat out screwed Jersey there.  They have every right to be pissed.

Its not the shots we need to stop as much as we need to stop leaving players wide open infront of the net. So many screens with no defender pushing the damn forward out of the front of the crease! You can't leave guys wide open in shooting areas and not expect them to score, especially with solid screens on the goalie. Look at the game before against the islanders, howard could see the puck and posted a shutout even with tavares and vanek peppering him with shots. Defensemen need to do their job in our end, we lost way to many battles, left to many guys open in shooting lanes, and couldn't guard the front of the net from screens and to smack away rebounds. like i said the second one was the only soft goal, all the others were legit and had more blame on the defensemen then the goaltenders. Not to mention Howard made some big saves, he robbed hartnell with a toe save that looked like an easy tap in.

 

Two things.

 

One: Every goalie makes big saves in every game. 

Two: The goalie's job is to make those saves when the defense leaves them out to dry.

 

Bottom line, Howard isn't playing well.  He needs to be better.  He knows this, we know this, everyone knows this.  And the good thing is there's still plenty of time left for him to pick up his game.  But we don't need to keep making these excuses for him that the fans have been making for years now.

The entire defense has been playing worlds better than we've seen even just last series.  They all deserve props, even Smith and Quincey.  There was one play I think in the first behind Jimmy where Quincey flat out battled the guy with everything he had and I couldn't believe me eyes.

So at the joe they have an add on the jumbottron with a number to text if you have any concerns about an unruly fan or something. I texted them that my concern was Kyle Quincey being on this team.

#2362711 Red Wings to be in an Eastern conference in latest NHL/NHLPA proposal

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 28 February 2013 - 02:30 PM

so in march, detroit has to go to ohio, then back to detroit then to calgary, then edmonton, then vancouver, then back to detroit, then to anaheim,  phoenix, san jose then back to detroit... detroits schedule is just fine, you're right, my bad...

The west coast teams have to fly out east just as much as the Wings do.  Don't forget they have to play out in Detroit Chicago St Louis Columbus and Nashville too. It's not like the Red Wings are the only team in the league that has to travel long distance.  And my whole point anyway was that a few conference games is not on the same level as having a divisional opponent a thousand miles away.
