#2616599 2015 Draft

Posted by Dave on 26 June 2015 - 02:33 PM

A 22 year old 6'5" RHD who plays over 20 minutes a night and scores 40+ points was traded for picks.....for picks??!! 


Holland, why didn't you throw the 1st, Nyquist, and Pulks at them?

Well, I think I'm done with the NHL for a while. Just cancelled my VPN, and game center live subscription.

Is this why Kenny Holland almost always offers some type of role within the organization after they retire?

This game makes me sad. Detroit is playing so much better than last game but have nothing to show for it.

#2588612 Is Hank too slow and ineffective to play center?

Posted by Dave on 02 April 2015 - 10:14 PM

He hasn't looked any worse than the rest of the team lately


So he's at least terrible? Honestly I don't think Z is the problem. He can't carry the team anymore, but he's still effective.

#2587776 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Coaching is the LAST problem with the Wings.  It's the Defense!  Plain and simple!  We have ONE .... one top four D man.  The rest are all 5,6,7s.  Danny will be there but he has no mentor as Kronner is fried.  It is the D!


I disagree with this. It's not the D's fault that the forwards constantly turn over the puck. It's not the D's fault that the forwards can't forcheck. It's not the D's fault that the forwards can't make, or take a pass to save their life. It's not the D's fault that the team can't win a faceoff this month.


The D is weak, no doubt about it, but it's far from the only problem.

There is almost nothing positive about that game other than Mrazek played very well. Defense sucked, offense sucked, passing sucked, faceoffs sucked. Sheesh, something's gotta give.

25% on the PK.....I'm no math wizard but that seems low.

:lol: yeah, I got the banhammer for a personal attack on myself. 



But weren't the Wings strong in the faceoff this season? Or am I making that up? 


They were 2nd in the league for half the season. Their strong possession numbers were driven by faceoff wins. A large offensive strategy was to just throw it on goal, and get an offensive zone faceoff and the carry possession.

The Leafs went 4-10-1 last March during their regular season collapse. The Wings are currently 4-7-1 in March. They are Leafing their way right out of the playoffs.

Detroit has become just awful at passing. It's been a problem most of the season.

Abbys moves so smooth he dekes himself out!

Did Ericsson look bad against Calgary and Boston?  I heard Weiss did. 


People like to blame Weiss for the 1st shorty, but he bobbled a s*** pass in the neutral zone. I blame the pass. The 2nd shorty was all on weiss.

see Im not sure if I like jurco on that line


He can now be creative because he has better line mates. It will pay off.
