#2460035 12/1 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Senators 2, Alfredsson scores ENG

Posted by 13dangledangle on 01 December 2013 - 11:14 PM

It looks like the boys are finding a stride! Nice work tonight-did the Sens radio broadcast do it justice? No. But none the less I enjoyed hearing buzzer less goals and little talk of who scored them...but the fact Alfie didn't get booooo'ed out of the building & got a goal? Priceless

I was getting a little worried, mainly because Smith at times seemed to look a little worried and thats never good.  He was stellar last night though imo, hope he keeps building on that!

#2455859 Nyquist Getting the call

Oh dear, when I saw Bab's said Zetterberg Nyquist Franzen I was stoked!  When he said Datsyuk Bertuzzi Cleary I puked in my mouth a little bit.   Seriously I feel Miller could help with offense more then Clears at the moment..

...at this point we have almost tried everything but this, what do we have to lose at the point? More games lol, but seriously when Wiess returns we could get a spark out of it. Play him with who's hot and get this big red machine rolling

Zetterberg Wiess Datsyuk
Franzen Helm Alfredsson
Nyquist Andersson Tatar
Miller Abdelkader Bertuzzi

Edit: I put goose here because I am stubborn

#2453609 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

I am official annoyed with the cleary signing. Reason #1 is that he keeps Goose down and #2 is that he has played and Tatar scratched. I gave Kenny and Co. The benefit of the doubt however it seems he really did not have any plan to fit Cleary in here...

Well that answers that. The last two waived-Tootoo & Eaves are my 2 favorite haha.
Edit: meaning my favorite out of waivables ;)

#2451351 Tootoo Waived

Posted by 13dangledangle on 06 November 2013 - 01:04 PM

was really hoping he wasn't the one to go to be honest, 2 more to go...

#2448821 What would you do?...

Posted by 13dangledangle on 30 October 2013 - 12:09 PM

I would also like to see Goose, Helm & Tatar.  I have always wanted our fourth line to be Bertuzzi  Abdelkader  Tootoo- Simply for selfish reasons

#2436105 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by 13dangledangle on 12 September 2013 - 10:50 AM

Was totally blind sided by this this morning, re-read the text three times to make sure...I just saw now to what term and I won't lie it looks good, AS long as we don't loose Tartar or Nyquist to the minors!!

How could you not hire this guy?  He's such a doucher it makes for hilarious entertainment.

#2430585 Um, OK, not really sure this'll have the desired effect

#2430211 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by 13dangledangle on 15 July 2013 - 05:51 PM

What happened to helping the team? If you could be a part of the best third line in hockey AND a spot on the power play what the F? I don't like the thought of him more less demanding a spot in the top six...that being said I still feel Brunner is still a Red Wing until he's not

Not to nitpick but with the correct LW/RW assignments it would be something like this.


I would prefer this:


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Alfredsson

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen

Tatar - Helm - Abby

Miller - Andersson - Bert/Eaves/Tootoo


If Franzen works hard during the regular season I would be very comfortable with that lineup. Each line has a shooter and a setup man. I think having one player on each line that is huge for the sake of being huge is a waste of time - you need to give the best players the top minutes and get them out there as much as possible together. Also, chemistry is chemistry so if something that looks weird on paper works then go for it. 


  I hope Mule has a hell of a year.   Also I just LOVE seeing Z one time it from the RW  :yahoo: 

#2428458 Brunner Contract Talks

Brunner  has the most deadly shot on the team.  It seemed like 50% of his goals last year were terrific snipes that were placed just right, places other shooters would have been less likely to hit.

And close in around the net, others just jamb away but he lifts it up and through holes.


His defense is underrated.  He is good with his stick, can thief behind, poke and agitate well, and  the smaller ice is much easier for him to cut off passing lanes than it was in Europe.


Too often people mistake skating slowly through shooting lanes for floating.  He is not the guy you want mucking for pucks in the corner.  He is the guy that finds open shooting angles so the corner mucker can get the puck out to him for a one timer.  


Even when he has struggled and been ineffective and shut down all game long, he can find that open part of the ice in the chaos of the game's last minute of play, and bury the puck in the back of the net better than anyone else on the team.  


While Nyquist, Tatar, and Brunner are very similar players, they are not carbon copy's of each other.  They each have unique strengths and all add value to this team.


  I agree with all of this.  I feel Nyquist Tatar Brunner are all totally different players with different skill sets.   Nyquist has the playmaking ability and vision similar to Dastyuk (only other player on our team that natural at it game in and game out) Tatar is hard on the puck and bangs in goals like Crosby does, some are garbage goals some are pretty.  Brunner has speed, good hands and a f*cking bullet of a shot.  All three different and all three important.
