#2369306 We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

Posted by Motown4013 on 15 March 2013 - 02:02 PM

LA Kings? They were considered the best team and not your typical 8th place team. So the answer to your question is last year.

LMAO

Riiiiiiiight! The LA Kings were considered the best team on paper last year? Thats hilarious.

Im sure most of the analyists and experts never saw LA as the team to beat. Give me a break. 8 of 12 ESPN hockey analyists had them ousted in the 1st round by Vancouver. They werent even favored when they ramrodded everyone to get to the SCF's as nhl.com has the Devils in 6. So the answer to my question is not last year.

Playoffs? When is the last time the BEST team ( on paper) won the cup? All we have to do is get it....and then we will see what happens....The boys can do that.
Zetterberg's beard alone can win the Conn Smythe....that's why 16 teams play for the best trophy in sport. We are getting in!
I believe!


#2368003 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by Motown4013 on 12 March 2013 - 12:17 PM

wow....what the #CK does a dude have to do to stay on this team? Tatar has been much more than anyone anticipated and yet he gets yanked. I dont care if its to see what Gus can do...he has played a way onto the team and has been better than at least half the roster. Its completely idiotic




#2367908 J.M. Liles potentially available

Posted by Motown4013 on 12 March 2013 - 08:24 AM

oranges.  Top to bottom, NJ's defense corps is MUCH better than ours.  A lot more depth and a lot less dead weight (Ericsson, Kindl, Quincey).  When three of our 6 nightly defenseman are as useless as those three, we've got troubles.

Wow...do you watch the games?????....Big Rig, Kindl AND Quincey have been MUCH better than the 1st ten games. Thats just a ridiculous statement

NJ Currentsly has 4 players who are plus players ( Green, Larsson, Volchenkov and Talinder) combined for a plus 10. The 6 defense corps have scored 37 pts.

We have 4 guys as well who are plus players ( Big Rig, Kindl, Q and Smith) combined for a +28pts .... all the guys you mentioned that are dead weight Our defense corps have scored 44 points.

Who's deeper and has less daed weight??

Can we be hopeful and think that we made room for Bobby Ryan? Ryan O' Reilly? A girl can dream :)


#2358471 Mikael Samuelsson

Posted by Motown4013 on 20 February 2013 - 09:17 PM

The shin guard assassin should be renamed " the physically unable to perform" assassin. Although at this point, I'd take Sammy over Cleary which is sad


#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

Posted by Motown4013 on 13 February 2013 - 10:01 PM

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!


#2354269 Joakim Andersson Recalled

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




#2352221 Mrazek To Start Tonight

Posted by Motown4013 on 07 February 2013 - 11:38 AM

Ok boys, time to show up and play for this kid. He is the guy the Wings will rely on in the upcoming years!

lets go WINGS! 




#2350939 Bottom Six

Posted by Motown4013 on 03 February 2013 - 10:21 PM

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




#2350861 Bottom Six

Posted by Motown4013 on 03 February 2013 - 04:09 PM

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!
