#2357727 2/19 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Predators 4 (OT)

Posted by Motown4013 on 19 February 2013 - 08:29 PM

Pretty sad when dats HAS to go over to where Cleary is instead of waiting for the pass because he knows he will loose the puck. Brutal.


#2355200 Time to sit Ian White

White is the least of our problems! He has been spotty but man, our issues are much deeper than White


#2354333 Joakim Andersson Recalled

Posted by Motown4013 on 11 February 2013 - 11:03 PM

 
Small sample size but he holds a 71.4% face off percentage right now.  Certainly beats the 45.5% win percentage held by the Wings current 4th line center.

Ok, that's one stat but let's look at the rest of his play... Took a silly penalty, is a minus, has three giveaways and no takeaways and no shots on goal. He has potential but he is not NHL ready verses a solid role player who has a wicked wrister, some speed and is very effective on the PK.

Eaves is glass.  Andersson is probably trying real hard not to get out of position right now, so it's probably safe to say he needs a bit more time to get comfortable with a spot in the line-up before he goes all out.  I'd rather give the new blood a chance.  


Eaves was out of the line up with a serious concussion.....give the brother a minute!

I may be in the minority here but I havent been all that impressed with Andersson. For having a big body, he doesnt use it alot. What does he bring to the tabe for this team? I know he is young but he certainly hasnt dazzled. I would prefer Eaves in the line-up

A couple of years ago he scored 26 goals in 68 games and was leading the team in goals before getting injured

A couple of years ago I could fill up my car with 20 bucks......but thats never happening again

I never thought I would say this but I miss Sammy. I have never been a huge Samuelsson fan but he can provide secondary scoring. If I am Babs, I would sit Cleary....sorry to all the fans of 11,but he has been terrible. He turns the puck over constantly. He makes misguided decisions with the puck....and he has lost a step. He and Miller have been the biggest disappointments so far.
When Helm is back wit h Samuelsson, bring up Nyqvist and sit Cleary. To me he is the obvious choice although I know he is fan fav and he is trying but at this point, he is a liability even in his own end where he was an asset.


#2344610 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by Motown4013 on 22 January 2013 - 02:39 PM

He didn't have to sign with Columbus. He would've become a free agent if he hadn't have signed and I'm sure he and his agent knew that.

No one has mentioned that he is a turd. he publically dissed detroit so why would we want him? He gets suspended over the blow job gesture to Sean Avery. Then he elbows Clutterbuck after the game is OVER and gets 8 games. Another 8 games for a head hunting job on Seabrrok....and yet another for one against Doan. heacts like a 10 year old at best.

As for his numbers, the last 3 years, he is a minus player and has had only one season that was offensively solid. I would rather MANY, MANY defenseman over this childish little weasel.

#2341325 Bert is Back! Mono test was false positive.

Posted by Motown4013 on 18 January 2013 - 04:08 PM

I wouldn't be surprised if Bert has the injury bug a lot this season.

agreed...with a short training camp and a compressed schedule, healthy teams will thrive!

#2335727 Has your opinion of kenny changed?

Just more of a fan of speed. Give Emmerton Hudlers minutes and linemates, and he will produce.

I actually laughed out loud when I read this. This is a HOCKEY site.....you know that right?


#2335407 Has your opinion of kenny changed?

Tootoo got benched. Emmerton played. Nuff said.

No...thats a terrible arguement and completely erroneous. What one player did in one series for ANOTHER team is irrelevant to what a player on THIS team in this series. We assume he was benched..... but he could have had an injury or a hundred other things. Do you really believe if Helm or Eaves were healthy, Emmerton sees icetime? LOL

Arguing with someone like you is pointless because AGAIN ( pushing the echo button) We, the fans have no idea why tootoo wasnt on the ice and its like comparing appes and banana.

Tootoo is a BETTER player than Emmerton, every single day
Nuff said


#2335147 Has your opinion of kenny changed?

Posted by Motown4013 on 03 December 2012 - 03:24 PM

I like Emmerton! 71 games last year. Everyone is going to be surprised by him eventually. He's the new Tim Taylor/Craig Johnson. The guy who goes unseen, but does his job and is just there.

Lol....you say you like Emmerton but Tootoo is a scrub? We will see, five games in when Tootoo absolutely demolishes someone like Thornton or Perry when they go after Datsyuk. No one....I mean NO ONE thinks Emmerton is a more valuable piece on this team that Tootoo. His mother doesn't even think that. You can hate 22 all you want be he adds a dimension to this team that we havent had since Downey left.
Emmerton love but Bert, Sammy Tootoo, Monster and Q are all scrubs. Ok friend!

Holland focused on rounding our team out with scrubs (quincey, bertuzzi, gustavsson, tootoo, and sammuelsson) for the same amount (11 mil per) that he could have paid Suter (9 mil per) and 4 prospects (.5 mil each). I would have ponied up for Suter and Parise. 9-10 mil per season each, 10 year deals. Dats and Z dont like it? Well, play good the next couple of years and we give those guys some golden parachutes too. Holland pussed out. We will feel it if the nhl ever gets going again.

I think you just love to read your own posts. Do you actually believe this arguement?
Pretty sure we made a huge pitch for Suter and at the end of the day, he chose to play with his BFF. Just for the record, the 11 million dollars we spent was spend on depth...no one on that list is a scrub...Do I LOVE Sammy...Um, NO....but he can assist with some production. Q had a crap year but 2 years ago everyone bitched that we traded him when he had huge points....Everyone complained that we needed to get tougher...BAM, TooToo is signed and you ***** about that. Holland didnt puss out so when the cap goes down, we will be laughin' and thinking Kenny is a genius.

PS As for youth coming in, hows that Emmerton situation working out? Just sayin'....n
