#2645857 Bravo, Smitty

Posted by matt198913 on 03 January 2016 - 09:57 AM

The thing about Smith was he always had some trouble in his own end. He has the speed to make up for it. 7 points in 8 games I want to see more. The first unit in the PP is abysmal right now. Throw him out there.


#2645812 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

E should be no where near this team when Quincey comes back. I like the Smith Green pairing a lot. Dekeyer can play with Quincey and yes stick Kronwall on the third pair with Marchenko. They will be a lot better off.

I think the ice time of the Dmen says a lot about what's about to happen with this team. 65-47 led today. 52 was the low man do to him being awful. 27 is on his way back. Will Blashill actually sit a core get on this squad of the past? I gotta think Balsh is seeing the writing on the wall as far as the vets-rookie dynamic is concerned. More 21, 15, 71, 2, 25, less 13, 55, abd 52.

Crowd needs to boo this cramp off the ice. Boo the coaching. Boo the leadership. Boo the effort. It's pathetic and changes need to be made. Acknowledge that 55 is old and get him off the top pair.

I'm telling you it comes straight from 55 and 52. Kronwall needs to be someone's second pair D man. Ericsson is someone's 7th D man. It's insane.

65-25
2-55
27-47

We've been so hard to watch the last few weeks. No energy, no urgency, no speed, no puck possession, no controlling the play, no established forecheck, just not dangerous at all.
 
The team is just impotent right now, and sadly we're pretty much at full strength. Are they tired or something? Zetterberg can't shoot, Datsyuk can't hold the puck, Helm, Glendening and Larkin don't look fast. WTF??
 
I just hate watching this team right now.



I don't know what you're seeing regarding Larkin. He's flying. It all starts from the back end. It's time for the Wings to get rid of 55 and 52

I've been harping like an old lady here (no offense to old ladies)...Our D (well - the entire team in general) sucks monkey testicles regarding play in our own end, and continues to give up multiple odd man rushes each, and every game.
 
So much for 'puck possession'.


That's because Holand refuses to acknowledge that Kronwall is not Lidstrom and go get a top D. The guy is turning into the left handed Zidlicky but without the points. No way he should be on the top pair.

Puck comes to the crease but that's interference... The new NHL


#2644502 Controversial Hits around the League

Posted by matt198913 on 28 December 2015 - 10:49 AM

I don't like a match penalty for that at all. I think it's totally ridiculous to expect players to walk on egg shells like this. What are we going to start calling butts to the head now? Give me a break. Muzzins job is to not let Gordon get by him and to hold the puck in the zone. If Gordon doesn't fall there's a shoulder check and possibly head contact.

Please retire Mule. You were great but concussions are no joke. You will be missed
