#2220490 Brunnstrom on waivers

Posted by T.Low on 31 October 2011 - 11:14 AM

he should have played in place of one of our top six who isnt producing, at least give him a chance..

I would have liked to see Babcock let Cleary sit and heal that upper body injury while Barnstorm skates on the Pavels wing to see what he can do. In hindsight, it couldn't have hurt anything.

#2220465 why this season will not be different...

Line juggling can only take a team so far. It won't change the fundamental problems the team has faced the last couple of seasons. I agree that a firesale is unnecessary. But at this point what will really help the team more than line juggling is a bona fide second line scorer. Or even a 1st line scorer to round out Datsyuk and Z's line.

#2220102 Buyers Remorse

Posted by wings87 on 29 October 2011 - 11:18 PM

I know it's only been 9 games but Ian White looks terrible, he gets caught pinching constantly, his shots are all over the place, and he just does not seem to have an ability to make a break out pass.

The question arises with so many games left in the season can he turn it around or is this just who he is. I wish him the best, for the Wing's sake and for my own sanity.

But in the mean time does anybody else have a little buyers remorse?

The OP should feel gratified at having made one of the dumbest posts ever on this forum. WOW.

Howard's wife has had a baby.

Last year, Ozzie's wife had a baby.

The last time Conks was here, his wife had a baby.

Solid proof that even if you f*** around, Detroit will bring out the best in you.

I remember when I had 16 posts

If his 17th post is anything like his 16th then someone should do us a favour and make sure he doesn't get an 18th.

We need a goaltender. Conklin is an impotent (as a player, i.e. cannot perform as a goaltender), Howard is a father. Even if you consider Howard a descent one to carry the team through the whole season, he may be able to get used to new home schedule (sleepless nights with newborn) by the start of the playoffs. But unfortunately by then most probably we will not need him since we will be out of it. Did you all notice that no matter who we play against, our goalie is always worse than another guy? And when finally he overplays his opponent (once or may be twice a year), we feel so proud, not to mention surprised… We always hope, believe. But it’s never a sure thing… I am just wondering why we cannot have the one who would be reliable at least 85% of the time? Don’t we finally have money to get one? Or we were waiting too long and now no one is available? All strong teams this year have good goalies and good backups… It is not possible to rely only on players when we all know that a goalie is half of the team, no matter how hard you try to forget about it.

#2218608 This team screams for a trade

Posted by RusDRW on 26 October 2011 - 04:39 AM

We have one of the most capable rosters in the whole league that can deliver in each and every game and all we get is clear lack of effort. I'm getting tired of all these after game quotes "We though we were prepared", "We just got beat, 7-1, so to start like that tonight, to me, is lack of preparation," "It was a disappointing effort. The coaching staff didn't do a good enough job; the players didn't do a good enough job."

We've heard such things so many times during the last two/three years. Where are the consequences? I think the real reason is that everyone on the roster feel too safe. They known that no matter how bad they play they'll never be traded. Starting from 4th line plug Miller to "superstar" Zetterberg. When intensity of the game is rather low we often win on a pure skill, when it gets higher like in the last two games we simply give up. To me this is pure lack of effort. If Bertuzzi or Zetterberg don't like to compete in games like this scratch them and call up Nyquist or Tatar.

PS For those saying that it is only two games (there are always a plenty of such guys) I recommend to watch some other teams. No team in this league gives up games so easily.

She's smart, pretty, and has kick-ass taste in music. Most offspring of wealthy and famous people turn out to be complete wastes of space - good to see she's an exception to the rule.

#2218700 Abdelkader

How about a 4th line of Ericsson/Abdelkader/Bertuzzi?

That would be our "enforcer line"

#2218588 Anyone else have a feeling that we'd lose tonight?

I think the crux of it was having Conklin start. I can't believe we brought that joke back. Should have started Joey Mac if anything.
