Zetterberg is playing awesome. Remember all those folks that bitched about him earlier this season and wanted to trade him? Where are they now?


Bitching about Cleary and Holmstrom :hehe:

Keep up the pressure!

The refs must know we can't score on the PP. So they are conspiring to make us lose by keeping us on the PP all night long!

I love how no one, not even our goalie, even tried to stop Richards there...

He may have great offense, but he doesn't have the defense to warrant him as the best player in the NHL. You have to be able to do both well for me to consider you the best.

Is it just me or is this board starting to crack up?

Not saying it isn't warranted, but still.


No you are correct.


Two months ago I and I'm sure most members of this forum would have said that the Wings have a major chance to win the cup this year considering how we are playing. Especially our home play and how we have the number one seed pretty much locked up. Fast foreward to right now and we are on a huge decline and looking at the 4 Seed at best. That means we only have home guaranteed for one series. Realistically two series at most. And looking at our road performance this means we are screwed. I think a lot of people are realizing just how far and how fast the team slipped from being favorites to win the cup to an outside dark horse shot.

But hey, I am a huge believer in the "THE POST SEASON IS A BRAND NEW SEASON" theory and once you're in anything can happen. So I guess we should just see where we end up and be ready to give it our all. Metaphorically speaking since I can't be out there on the ice myself.

Mike, do you ever look at stands on your road games?
Yesterday, there was around half of audience wearing red and white as well as a day before.

Do you care about them? Or it's all about 'people in Michigan'?


He meant that what happened last night was a complete embarrassment. It's not a shot at the people in the stands...

Avery at his "best": ******


Wait what's wrong with using your stick and hands to distract the goalie again? It's only ok to screen the goalie by standing there the entire time and not moving at all?

He didn't hit anybody. No high stick. And why didn't the defense come and clear him out if he's bothering brodeur that much?


#2270494 Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 15 March 2012 - 01:01 AM

Raw stats don't mean anything. Just looking at Franzen's numbers makes you think "oh yeah ok he seems to do good he deserves a huge contracnt"

But if you actually watch the games you can clearly see he is pretty much a no show. He doesn't do ANYTHING most of the time. Just skates around minding his own business. And all of those goals he scores, are usually done at pointless times. IE Last night when we were already down 2 (or 3 I can't remember) goals to the Kings. Or better yet when we're up 2 or 3 goals.

Playoff preformer or not, I want you to play your heart out EVERY TIME you step out onto the ice. Not just in the post season. Because once you start trending in a direction you typically keep following it. And right now Franzen is NOT trending in a positive direction in any facet of the game.

I think this thread title should be changed to (Blank) at Anaheim Ducks since clearly the Red Wings didn't show

Anyone still think MacDonald is an NHL goalie? If you go one-on-one against him there is a 90% chance you will score. That is an AHL goalie right there.


If people are scoring against JMac one on one then the problem is with out DEFENSE. Not with our goalie. It should never be one on one with our goalie EVER.

I think it's safe to assume that we are SCREWED if Lids retries and Stuart bounces to the west coast next year.

#2268313 What do you think needs to be done to fix the PP/PK

Posted by CrimsonFlame on 08 March 2012 - 05:37 PM

There's one thing I absolutely hate about our power play. More often than not we spend a minimum of thirty seconds cycling the puck. Just passing back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth waiting for the perfect opportunity to shoot. Maybe I just prefer a different style of hockey but if it were up to me I would throw the puck on the net as often as possible. At least when you shoot at the net it generates a chance to score. Not always a good chance, but a chance none the less. I at least prefer to have the chance rather than spending all two minutes just passing the puck around getting a total of two shots in what should be two minutes of free offense.

Oh that and then there are just those power plays where it seems like WE are the ones down a man. But that's a whole different animal.
