Aren't we third in the league in power play opportunities?  Why are you complaining?


We have the third most powerplays in tonight's game, and there's only two teams.

5 on 5 we have sustained pressure so far.

 

Given the two penaltys and the fact that we always suck the first ten minutes we look good.

#2550238 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2014 - 03:04 PM

Kindl had 2 goals but followed it up with a terrible game against Tampa. I think he turned over the puck to Stamkos on one goal that was real bad. Looked real bad that game.

 

and real bad is most definitely the oposite of Babcock's desired 'realgud'

Anyone says anything about Jimmy tonight can go sit in a box and think about what they've done.

Ref with subtle interference on the Wings in the o-zone there. Edzo would be proud.

The crazy thing about Holtby's dive is it put him entirely out of position to stop Miller's shot. If he stays up, that's an easy save. So, the goal was a direct result of his stupid dive and he got rewarded for both.


Just like Price's bump took him out of position.


#2544737 Rating the Defense through 6 games

Posted by krsmith17 on 27 October 2014 - 09:12 AM

Let's just agree to disagree on this one... I don't think a defenseman in the middle of the diamond makes sense at all, that is the last place I would put Smith. The player in the middle is who you want directing traffic, and can make the quick one touch passes and can also be a trigger man.

 

I also disagree that Smith wouldn't be capable of manning the point, even if he were the last man back in the diamond. He has improved his defensive game immensely and is much smarter with the puck. Even if he does make a mistake, he is our fastest defenseman, so the chance of him recovering is much higher than any of the other d, in my opinion.

 

Either way, I'm done with this. I just want our power-play to improve. It's clearly not getting it done now, whether that's on the system they're using, the coaching strategies or the personnel, who knows...

#2543541 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 23 October 2014 - 04:04 PM

Right now I think Myers is a bit better than Smith and Dekeyser.  I think that's going to change fairly soon though.  Given Myers' contract, I don't want him unless they're willing to take a ridiculously craptacular package in return, which they won't.

Did you know that Myers is younger than Smith and the same age as Dekeyser? If they have room to improve, why doesn't Myers?

Just a random thought. I know Adam Almquist went overseas, but if I recall correctly, the Wings still hold his rights. Is that a piece we could throw in to a package to help keep Larkin and Mantha off the table? He was good in the AHL but a bit undersized. He might fit with a team like the Sabres, though on the surface he's likely not much, if any, value now.

Better throw in Emmerton just to be sure...

They were certainly better than this vs Montreal.
