#2596845 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by matt198913 on 20 April 2015 - 12:32 PM

This is how I would do it

2-55
65-27
52-28

Ya, Babcock always changes things in the playoffs. Its like this year with Qunicey/DD.


Yeah changes his best pairing just when they finally started to gel. I was incredulous when I saw that. If I'm him I am reuniting my top pair from last year Smith and Kronwall and playing 65-27, and letting 52 drag down 28.

I hope the Wings are taking notes on how to slow down a really fast team. Hit anything that moves

You're comparing the point totals of a stay at home D-man to a two-way D-man. Scoring points is not Ericsson's role on the team. That comparison doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And +/- is far from a reliable stat.
 
More, DK had 106 minutes of PP time this year, second only to Kronwall among our D-men. Big E had a grand total of 14 minutes of PP time the entire season. So you can see why DK scores more, that's one of his roles on this team. And yet being a 30 pt D-man shouldn't excuse one from bad penalties and bad mistakes. There was more criticism about Kronwall this year than there was about DK which is laughable.
 
Mantha fever is exactly my point. If we brought him up and he didn't perform well everyone blinded with fever would make excuses for him.


Scotty had a saying for stay at home dmen. They should just stay at home.

Who says that?
 
Everyone pretends to be fair and unbiased, but DK receives almost zero criticism for his mistakes and bad penalties. You don't get a pass for age. When you F up you F up.
 
If we played a new player like Mantha right now, and he screwed up a lot, everyone would say "He's not ready"


Big E 3 goals 12 assists -5
Danny 2 goals 29 assists +11

Any questions? Not to get off the subject but if we brought up Mantha right now this forum would go insane with Mantha fever. At least we'd see the "future" face of the franchise.

i can't believe we're actually arguing how much of an impact Smith would be in our lineup. This should be a true indication of how far away from a Cup we really are. We might as well be arguing how great of a Red Wing Uwe Krupp was.


I just think Smith brings a physical edge to our team and can chip in offensively. Amazing that he got a total of five minutes of PP time with that shot this year and had 3 pp points. Its my opinion that he hasn't been given the chance to grow offensively and maybe that's because of his shortcomings defensively. However it is tough to grow when your D partner is constantly changing and your forced to play a completely different style. Put him in for game 3 and actually play him to add some punch to your team.

Strange thing is he was pretty good when he was younger. Than just dropped off or something. Or other teams gang up our D because, with the exception of a few, none of them seem to handle pressure well


Do you recall who his d partners were? Lindstrom and Rafalski

I really think Smith should get a shot in this series. He is physical plays with an edge, and judging by the end of this game a welcome change to what we saw today.

Weiss cannot play if Abby is healthy for game 3

It was a tough decision, but I am going with the same lineup today: Tatar shirsey, sweats, and Red Wing fuzzy socks

Ok, can someone explain to me--in a non-biased way without using the word "attitude" or any of its synonyms--why people seem to hate PK sooooo much? Because I *really* struggle to see what is so outrageously offensive about him. I get it--he's similar to B Smitty in that he has immaturity and impulsivity issues, but SO DO A LOT OF PLAYERS. I never see the same vitriol pointed in their direction. Would people seriously not want him on the Wings? Or is he only hated because he's on the Habs? This is an honest question, help me understand.


I hate him because he is a cheap shot artist and a diver. That's why I hate the entire Habs team. They dive constantly and then complain about it. It makes me sick to my stomach. Say what you want about Smith he doesn't dive and he doesn't cheap shot guys. How anyone outside of Montreal can stand Subban is beyond me.
