Come on guys, now we have one more thing to play for!!!

#2144250 4/8 GDT: Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Doc Holliday on 08 April 2011 - 09:49 PM

The more I watch all these games and other games around the league, the more I am mad that we chose Franzen instead of Hossa. Hossa is MUCH better on the D side, and he seems to be trying every single game I watch for the Hawks. Perhaps more significantly is the fact that Hossa has only played in 65 games and has 26 goals, meanwhile Franzen has played 76 games and has 28 goals. Also, Franzen plays lazy half the time, while Hossa is a factor even when he isn't scoring, though it is still impressive for him to almsot have 30 goals. I am just very disappointed with Franzen and think we should heave kept Hossa. Regardless, babs better take Fraznen off of Datsyuk's line.

It's not like Hossa gave up on Detroit when it really mattered.

He was a joke in the 2009 playoffs. And absolute joke.

Either way, were people saying this earlier in teh season? Nope. As soon as he stops scoring it is the end of the world and Hossa is such a great bargain in comparison.

People seem to forget Franzen had 18 points in 12 games last playoffs. But that's okay, Hossa's 3 goals were what we needed most that year.

Mursak is the only one that I can see making any real difference in the postseason, at least right now. Maybe I'll eat crow, but hopefully we don't get to the point where we could find out.

I like the way Bert is playing going into the playoffs, he better be a physical beast when they come

#2141009 Bertuzzi vs O'Brien 1 & 2

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 02 April 2011 - 08:01 PM

It was about time these 2 went at it, theyre always jawing at eachother and this little rivalry has been going on at least since last year.

I remmeber they dropped the gloves last year but it was broken up before they could go. I'm surprised Bert did as well as he did, O'Brien isnt a bad fighter at all and Bertuzzi is pretty rusty in that regard, THE MANS STILL GOT IT :clap:

EDIT: Anyone know what sparked the first fight, I missed the first period and didnt actually see it, this video doesn't really show much either. I know theyve had ahistory of not liking eachother but did O'Brien take a run at someone or something?

For him to go twice like that I figure O'Brian was chirping him and said something that really got Bert's goat.

All I know is that second fight was a turning point (along with the time out by Babs). Thanks Bert :thumbup:

Huge +1 for Bert. He should do that more often!

#2139833 Datsyuk and Howard both have setbacks

Posted by CaliWingsNut on 01 April 2011 - 08:42 AM

New report out this morning saying Datsyuk and JHoward both aren't quite ready yet.

Their injuries may even take them into the first round now.

So frustrating... Just one setback after another this year. I hope Babcock's hard skate yesterday didn't screw things up.

April Fools!

#2139759 Blues fan here, can I offer some perspective?

Posted by ShakeyWalton on 31 March 2011 - 10:47 PM

Hey guys. I just got done reading the GDT from last night's game, and wanted to make a few comments.

First off, that was obviously a great game for us Blues fans to watch. To score 10 goals against any NHL team is quite a feat, but to do it to Detroit, in Detroit nonetheless, was remarkable. I must say though, that I am rather surprised at some of the comments in the GDT thread. I never thought I would see Red Wings fans question the leadership qualities of Lidstrom, or question the toughness of Franzen. There seemed to be a ton of negativity for just 1 game. For a minute there, I thought I was reading a Blues GDT.

I can understand the irrational posts after such a blowout, but you guys get a high seed in the playoffs, while we go home again. We'll trade you if you want? We have a concussed great young player that has shown no inclination that he'll be cleared to play, a very erratic goaltending tandem, players missing practices, a drunken golf cart injury that was the beginning of the end for a #1 overall, no playoffs 5 out of 6 years, and last but certainly not least, a dirt cheap payroll from an ownership that desperately wants out.

This thread was only created so that you Red Wings fans can appreciate what you have. Talk to you later and good luck in the playoffs.

I can handle losing to Vancouver.. and even to Pittsburgh.. But there is nothing I hate worse then the onslaught of ridiculous Leafs fans who will immediately swarm my facebook wall to proclaim that Toronto is better than Detroit..

Let's Go Wings!
