Bad pass by Andersson.

100% agree. Abby was terrible last game imo. Bert has skill and size, and has good chemistry with Datsyuk. Bert looked good last game as well, he made a couple great plays but no one could finish.

Bert looked very slow last game- he got burned trying to pressure the puck carrier in the neutral zone before the Sabres goal. I'm not sure he can get to the corners and pressure the D quick enough to help that line forecheck. I think Bert is better when the Wings have the puck, but Abby is bettter all around.

#2441289 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 03 October 2013 - 08:53 AM

I'm puzzled by people mentioning the Draper/Lemiuex and Lidstrom/Laperrierre hits.  On both occasions we had fighters on the team., on both occasions they did nothing to prevent the hit occuring.  No point circle jerking over Downey dropping the gloves when Lidstrom is already out injured.  Clearly Downey failed as an enforcer.


Lemiuex was a dirty SOB his entire career and enforcers did nothing to stop his cheap-shotting.

The argument of cheap shot prevention can't be proven either way. That is, we can't say there are more or less cheap shots with fighting because we don't know what would happen in the NHL if fighting were removed.


Paul Maurice, who has experience in both the NHL and KHL, had an interesting take on this yesterday.

Good hustle by Abby to get onside and get back into the play.

2nd PP unit is iffy.

#2438478 buffalo and toronto fight

For those that don't know, this is what happened prior to the brawl. It has also been reported that Scott told Kessel he was going to jump him when they came together for the faceoff.


I have no problem with Kessel slashing Scott the first time, but the other times were not neccesary.

#2437128 9/16 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 4 at Penguins 1

Thinking of gettiing Gamecenter Live. Is it the same thing as Gamecenter?

Gamecenter Live (sometimes called Gamecenter) is the official NHL site to watch games online (computer, phone, tablet, xbox, etc). I used it last year for the first time, and I thought it was great. For me, the only negative is that NHL Network games are blacked out, and the channel isn't available from my cable provider. There are other less expensive (or free) illegal alternatives, but IMO Gamecenter Live is worth the money.

#2430664 Rule 48: not working as planned.

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 18 July 2013 - 01:00 PM

I think the article is supposed to read "diagnoses" instead of "injuries". There was a major lack of awareness in the years leading up to rule 48 and likely too few diagnoses.

Per the Bruins website.



#2428505 Abdelkader Hypothetical

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 07 July 2013 - 01:33 PM

i don't see abby playing on the PP though.. at least not yet. 


pav, z, alfie, mule, bert, weiss, nyq, tatar are all guys i see on the PP before abby.


hell, even sammy would be on there before abby, not that i'd want him to be at all.. 

I think the PP is where Abby's play is best. Over the course of lat season, his play in front of the net improved greatly.

#2426792 Dan Cleary Watch

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 05 July 2013 - 12:30 PM



Dan Cleary had an awesome time in Detroit.  Resurrected a non career,;knocked Phanuef all the way back to Ontario;  stood up to Chris Prongber;  was key in a Cup victory; heart  and soul player that gave it his all, exactly what you want players to do in the playoffs.

I will always remember the awesome Dan Cleary.


Make lots of $ and enjoy Dallas.


Edit; I type slow on this thing.  

I think he was great for the Wings. Unfortunately, there isn't any room for him in the top-6 or bottom-6. I hope he has success with another team.

I think Abby has shown that he can take over Cleary's role- I don't see where the Wings have room for Cleary.

#2425803 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 04 July 2013 - 11:45 AM

stay far way from grabhovski , we shouldnt sign someone just for the sake of it , just gonna have to make a trade

What don't you like about him? He (generally) scores more than Flip and he will likely be cheaper. His defense isn't as solid, but his offense is certainly better. IMO him for 2-4 years at 4m is better than Flip or Weiss for 5-6 years at 5-5.5m. However, he could command the same price and term as those players.
