#2491712 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Dave on 06 March 2014 - 02:23 PM

You have to look ahead towards the future .... Getting the top 4 dman would be a lot more valuable .... Everyone's just thinking about the present and keeping the streak alive ... While it's nice I much rather prefer looking ahead

Our chances of getting in the playoffs let alone winning the cup aren't great this season ... Just being realistic
As opposed to playing on a team stacked full of talent and having no pressure on him and yet producing mediocre numbers that even Hayley wickenheiser would surpass?

Sorry, I was under the impression that checkers/grinders are way easier to come by than bonafide skilled centers.

 

Silly me. 

 

NHL players are harder to come by than AHL players.

The problem is he send only top 6 potential center prospect not name Sheahan

 

There's time to get more center prospects. There isn't time to find a patch for the Wings. This trade makes sense from almost all risk management perspectives.




#2491021 Datsyuk shut down for 3 weeks

Posted by Dave on 05 March 2014 - 05:12 PM

yay my first wings game i am going to on sunday and i dont get to watch Z or datsyuk. 

 

I went to the Caps game in Feb and was sad that Dats wasn't playing. Then Nyquist hat trick'd, so I was happy.

 

Maybe Franzen will roid rage and score 5 goals.

#2489674 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by Dave on 04 March 2014 - 09:08 PM

Well Andersson is centering the 1st line, how can they NOT be winning?

I hate injuries...


#2489232 Canadians may be shopping Subban...

Datsyuk is playing on one leg, Z is out, and so is Weiss; tonight we have Andersson centering the first line. As much as the Wings need a defenceman they also badly need another solid top six forward. 

 

Those are all temporary absences. The D is healthy and still inadequate. I understand your reasoning, Z, D, and Weiss aren't playing, so it is an immediate need. However, I just want to point out that it isn't a permanent need.




#2478137 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

Posted by Dave on 28 January 2014 - 01:37 PM

No Datsyuk, no Zetterberg, no Franzen, maybe no Howard. I feel like someone needs to be fired.

 

Can't, both Babs and Holland are on LTIR. They aggravated their golfing elbows in preparation for spring.

No D, no Z. Maybe A comes back. H is back in for sure! Score some G's boys and get the W!




#2476267 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by Dave on 23 January 2014 - 07:49 AM

Wings need 21 wins out of 32 games to make the playoffs.  It's widely accepted that you need around 95 points, 21 wins is 42 points.  Wings are currently at 54 points.

 

So 21 games out of 32, that's a 65% win record.  Unless Wings start pulling off consecutive stretches of wins, we're not going to make it.

 

The east is terrible this year. I'm thinking it will be one of those 88 point 8th seed years. So that's a solid 17-15 record. Or if you'd like 13-11-8. Nice .530 hockey.

Abs is having a fantastic game.




#2475523 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

Posted by Dave on 22 January 2014 - 08:30 PM

Our fourth line is playing well.
The last few games I've seen a lot of good things from glendenning..
ddidnt really like him, or understand how he got the call up before the obvious, but he's gritty.
I'm comin around.

 

Which one?
