#2509865 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 15 April 2014 - 05:42 PM


Sheahan will never be a legit 1C. He slots in to be a 3rd line center on a healthy team. Good defensively, can chip in, but shouldn't be expected to perform above that. 


I would think that a player with his shot and his passing ability can do better than a 3rd line center...

I've been saying forever that Nyquist was off the table for me.  If we let some people around here make trades he'd have been gone for less than JB.  Hindsight is 20/20 eh?

Been following this site for awhile. I often have it up while I watch as you all do. Proud to join some of the game night threads and pull my hair out like the rest of you. So for my first official post I'll say- how huge was that 5 on 3 kill in the second? Here's to a big 3rd pd.

I'd like to see a Helm, Datsyuk, Nyquist top line, resurrect the kid line as the 2nd and roll Franzen, Legwand, Alfredsson as the old and lazy 3rd line. 

What is going out there right now isn't working, mix it up Babs.

#2506777 A plea to Holland.

"Fresh young blood" to replace guys like Kindl and Lashoff who are stale and old? And what if we bring someone else up and they don't solve all of the problems immediately? Forgive me if I'm not in a real hurry to bring inexperienced young players up this close to playoffs.
Also, is Kindl hate a thing now? I thought we liked him


As we've found out this year, our players in the minors have been held back too long.  If not for injuries, guys like Sheahan and Jurco would have been in GR all year, while Bertuzzi, Sammy and Cleary would be playing.  Holland doesn't have a clue.  


I wouldn't be surprised if one of our young D-men in the minors is better than some of the garbage playing on the top squad.

I think we will get in no problem. We lost pretty much the exact way we lost to Montreal a little over a week ago. What did we do after that loss where everyone was beside themselves? We won 4 games in a row. 


Now, the biggest problem I see is, now that Pav is back, the lines look all out of synch, like no one really knows what eachother are doing. With 4 games left, Babs needs to establish exactly what the lines are going to be. In the 3rd tonight, he demoted Nyquist to the 3rd line and chose to play Franzen and Abby with Pav, which I think is a HUGE mistake. Nyquist is the hottest player on the team and has been scoring goals like mad, you don't give him less playing time. Franzen meanwhile has done absolutely nothing for this team lately, so I want to see him demoted. Go with these lines:


Nyquist- Datsyuk- Abby (We need a guy who isn't afraid to go to dirty areas, something Franzen does not do)

Jurco- Sheahan- Tatar (Play them more, no reason to limit their minutes)

Franzen- Legwand- Alfredsson

Glendening- Helm- Miller


Also, we NEED to limit the time on ice for Kindl and Lashoff... they are killing us. Kronner can play near 26-27 min along with Danny D, Smitty so that it limits Kindl's ice time. That needs to be done.

The beginning of the season every year, when we lose a game everyone says "relax, it's just the beginning of the season" and every year around this time we are reminded that every point counts.

There are days when our defense looks way better than it should, and then there are days where they look like a box of factory reject dildos. I still just can't believe how many forwards we've added in the last few years considering how many quality defensemen we lost. It shouldn't be so easy for the D to be this useless. The defense absolutely needs to get stronger so they can stop having to rely on luck and can just start being good.

I think we look exactly like we did against Buffalo the last 2 periods. Creating some chances offensively, but overall being really sloppy with the puck and getting out of position defensively. 


Franzen has to get going, he's been pretty bad lately. It's painfully obvious that we're struggling to find scoring if Nyquist isn't acting like Stamkos. 


Maybe someone on the team should call out Franzen...

The refs have been a joke so far. I counted at least 4 habs penalties that were far worse then what the wings were called for that period... That's just pathetic. The best part is all habs powerplays came literally right after they should have been called for something.

Aside from the poor officiating, the wings need to be better. They were a step behind most the period. I think pav would benefit from the speed and energy of Nyquist. I can't stand franzen playing with Nyquist. Nyquist- pav- Alfie is a great line. Either way, wings need to come out more engaged.

Hmm. I guess I'll see just how big of a Wings fan my wife really is.

It's our 5th anniversary, and our first time away from the kids together (our kids, not Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, and Nyquist!) and we'll be staying at one of Vancouver's top luxury hotels

I wonder if I'll be able to see the tv from the tub?
