#2144671 4/10 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Blackhawks 3

Posted by matt198913 on 10 April 2011 - 12:08 AM


Early game! Sucks that we'll have to wait til later this week to start playoffs. I'm psyched, even if I'm not as optimistic as usual this time of year. I still have faith that despite this garbage of a season the Wings will find the switch and win it all. As a fan, I can never suppress that hope.

Well aren't we spoiled... Garbage of a season I'm sure the folks in Carolina Toronto and Dallas would be glad to have this garbage of a season. For christ sake the teams made the playoffs 20 straight years another 100 points what more do you want from them

Not worried at all they sleepwalked through this game cmon lgw.... they are 18-13 in April in the regular season since 2002. Their best April came in 2006 under Babcock where the Wings were outed in the first round by Edmonton. Their worst April came in 2002 where they won the Stanley Cup!!! Point is this does not matter all that matters to the Wings franchise starts on Wednesday night.

If I'm a doctor I'm prescribing the members of LGW one giantly massive chill pill... Cmon they are playing a desperate team who is most likely going to give Vancouver fits in the playoffs bottom line RELAX

It's about time Johan Fedorov I mean Franzen shows up again. Lets face it he's one of the best goal scorers in the league, but he plays when he wants to much like a former wing...

I hate to sound like a complete homer too but how is he not hgiher. I didn't grow up in their era but I never seen highlights of anyone of them taking the puck right off someones stick dangle through two defenders and put it top corner. He is one of the most underrated players in history.

#2136694 Jimmy Howard injury

ALso, I just re-read this thread, and I completely agree:

I'm so sick (and actually sad) of hearing the hate on howard, especially from wings fans..

People need to give this guy a break. He's 27 in his second full season as a goalie for the Red Wings. The second toughest job in Detroit right next to being the closer for the Tigers or the quaterback for the Lions. Jimmy was great last year and with out him that longest playoff streak in history would have been snapped. He's playing at a high level right now hopefully he just needs to rest that shoulder.

I gotta say Howard held them in this one again. Bad goal to start with but he was outstanding the rest of the way.

He was pretty awful for most of the game.

The game winning goal and an assist ya he sucked tonight...

Isn't the goalie supposed to be able to do his job. Whatever happened to that

Gillies is a cancer in this league.

Cmon Howard haters get talk about rebound control

#2125172 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by matt198913 on 03 March 2011 - 10:07 AM

1993 I was expecting them to beat the Leafs in the first round but thanks to Pat Burns god rest his soul that didn't happen
1994 They were supposed to be in the finals with New York, horrible first round though
1995 Should of won the cup, I expected them to win the cup they had the best team but maybe still needed to learn how to win a little bit more
1996 This was the year right we had the best record in history, everything going for us. Nope
1997 Did not expect them to win it at all, I just wanted to see them play Colorado some time durring the playoffs
1998 After they got Fedorov back I fully expected them to win the cup and with ease
1999 After getting Chelios, Wenddel Clark, Ulf Samuelson, and Bill Ranford to play goal how could they not win the cup! Didn't expect then to get blown away by Colorado
2000 Adding Pat Verbeek but still didn't expect them to win
2001 Never expected them to lose in the first round I thouhgt they might have a shot at the confrence finals
2002 Really did someone that follows hockey not expect them to win that year
2003 Fully expected them to repeat, stupid Giggy
2004 Chaos that season however they got Hatcher back at the right time so I expected them to at least be in the mix for the cup
2005 Even though there was no season I still expected them to win the cup
2006 Led the league in points best team overall, everyone felt like it was going to be Stevey Y's last year definitely expected them to comptete for the cup, didn't see that loss to Edmonton in the first round coming
2007 Thought they had a great shot after beating Calgary in the first round and after getting Bert at the trade deadline but it wasn't to be
2008 Fully expected them to win the cup with Hasek playing lights out in the regular season, who knew that Ozzie would lead them to it
2009 Expected them to win the cup
2010 If they got to the conferecne finals it would have been a small miracle still this is Hockeytown, so I have to be honest I expected them to win the cup
2011 In my opinion for top to bottom they have the best line up out there, the only question is in goaltending which I believe Howard can answer. I think they win the cup beating Pittsburgh if Crosby comes back in 6 games if he doesn't come back then they beat Philadelphia in 6

So you could argue that they are similar in the +/- stat category being that Ericcson plays for the 84 point Red Wings, while Bogosian plays for the 61 point Thrashers could you not? Not even considering ice time which I am sure Bogosian gets more of.

My point is don't take into consideration the +/- stat so much.

Ericcson is 6 years older too. That being said, I'd be trading Kindl before Ericcson for sure!!

I do think the plus minus does play a major role in todays NHL. Last year E a minus 15, he's definitely improving
