#2248070 No suspension for Zetterberg

Me thinks 3 games.


#2248177 What's wrong with Abdelkader?

Posted by Icesurfer on 22 January 2012 - 08:13 PM

In the past 6 games Abdelkader has been averaging only about 10 minutes per game. Earlier in the year he got up to 17 minutes.

In case anyone has forgotten Abby was Detroit's BEST plus/minus leader last year at PLUS 15.

IMHO, Detroit's road woes are due primarily to the second line of Filppula, Zetterberg and Hudler.... they are something like MINUS 24 on the road.

Opposing teams are smart when they have last change.... they put their checking line against Datsyuk's line and their best scoring line against Z, Fil and Hudler.... NO CONTEST.

Last year I remember Abby getting a few games on the top line and the second line and more on the third line. Why not? He is an excellent checker with good speed and willing to go into the corners and wins battles for pucks... unlike, say, someone like Hudler. Although, I do have to say I see Hudler willing to go to the net and that is how he is getting his points... but when it comes to checking a big scorer.... forget it. What good is getting 30 points when you give up 50 points in the process?

Yes, Abby has taken some bad penalties this year and has made a few bonehead plays, but what player hasn't (Datsyuk not included..LOL)?

If the fourth line is going to get only 7-9 minutes a night anyway why waste Abby on that line? The one problem I know is that Abby has centered and Emmerton is the only other center. So if Mursak is in for Emmerton there is no true center for the fourth line. I know Babcock has put Cleary on the second line for a few games lately on the road but then that messed up the third line... which was doing well before the injuries. Maybe the Wings should trade away Mursak and bring up Nyqvist who is a center. Could have Homer, Nyqvist and Hudler as the fourth line.

Abby can be a second line skater and would do well with Zetterberg and Filppula until at least Detroit gets a top 6 forward, hopefully, before the trade deadline.


#2248084 SI: Sidney Crosby to visit spine specialist in Calif.

Posted by Yzguy on 22 January 2012 - 09:10 AM

I never liked this guy. He's too talented and winning comes too easy for him. He doesn't deserve it. I never liked his smug punk face. I hated the fact that he dissed hockey's post-series handshake tradition, one of the greatest traditions in all of sports, and nobody besides Red Wing fans in the NHL called him out for it. As much as I can't stand him I didn't wish the concussion thing on him. Or the NHL. The NHL is responding, finally. Perhaps Cindy Crosby will eventually find his way back on to the ice. So I can see him get drilled again!

Let's go Red Wings!

#2246370 subban being shopped

Posted by Nevermind on 17 January 2012 - 02:22 PM

Subban has a lot of attitude problems. But, hey, if there's any team stupid enough to trade him for Ericsson and prospects--it might be Montreal.

Hudler, Miller, Smith, 2nd rounder for Subban and Moen

Meh. Statistically any pick beyond the 3rd round isn't supposed to make the NHL.

Good thing statistics aren't carved in stone.

#2246786 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

Posted by rick zombo on 18 January 2012 - 10:16 AM

Obviously you guys are excited, and you should be.

But speaking as a fan of another team, it's pretty irritating that the NHL keeps putting the same damn teams in the Winter Classic every couple years. I'm sure you'd feel the same way if Detroit hadn't been in it yet and three other teams had been in it twice already in 5 years.

Obviously Wings and Leafs fans are happy, but I'm not so sure about most other fans. I hear a lot of grumbling about recycled teams and how people are losing interest because of that (maybe just talk...I'm sure they'd still watch it).
Yes, the original six match up is cool, it's an old rivalry between Toronto and Detroit, I get it...but the NHL needs to get some new teams in there.

You know Chicago will get it again in a year or two (hopefully against St. Louis, in St. Louis)...and surely if Crosby ever comes back, Pittsburgh will get it again in a 2-3 years. So I fully expect the trend of recycling teams to continue. I just hope the Blues get in before the NHL decides to scrap the Winter Classic due to falling ratings or the novelty wearing off, or whatever.


:rolleyes:

I'd rather look at it this way: Like it or not, from your perspective as a Blues fan, The Red Wings are the undisputed class of the NHL in organizational structure, ownership, winning, the generation of TV ratings, merch sales and on and on. They should have hosted the first Winter Classic and it's about time they had one. For once, the game is celebarting the success of two mega-franchises rather then trying to push an agenda of marketing "star" players or pandering to east coast NBC markets.

Add to that the fact that Toronto is a very deserving opponent. Viola!!!! Party time.

#2174742 Where is the Pavel Datsyuk appreciation thread?

Posted by Nev on 13 May 2011 - 02:25 AM

Because the man was just a beast. The only skater to turn up for all 7 games of the San Jose series, and an absolute joy to watch. 11 games, 15 points, +10.

He deserved better, and there's a fair few players on this team owe him an apology.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I forgot, played with a wrist so badly injured he couldn't take face-offs
