#2480401 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 February 2014 - 04:07 PM

Wings need a solid dman. Tonight was exhibit A again. We don't need anymore firepower unless you want to start winning games 8-5. 




#2480399 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 February 2014 - 04:06 PM

Z got manhandled multiple times that game with no call including one right before the end of the 3rd. It makes sense then that the Caps don't get a soft pp in OT then - but the refs do it anyway. I don't mind the Z no call if they don't make that soft call in OT.

With a mediocre goalie we might actually have won this one.

Howard literally has a 50/50 chance of stopping Ovi - he just has nothing on Ovi for some reason.

congrats refs! And somehow the NHL spins it that Ovi is a hero despite doing dick-all all game. If they put the whistle away for the wings do the same the other way.

Z got molested out there with no call - he gets penalized for that "trip" earlier. Cmon refs at least make it LOOK like you aren't being one sided.

How many Abby's does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Infinite because he has no hands.

Neuvirth is making game stopping saves every shift seemingly, that's the difference right now.

Howard isn't doing us any favours tonight. He is making the saves he should be making but cmon can we get a highway robbery or two please? 




#2479734 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

What complicates the matter for Datsyuk further is the fact he is the captain for the Russian national team for the rapidly approaching Winter Olympics. The tournament is something Datsyuk has eagerly waited for. He insists he will not miss the Olympics.
 
But they’re now a little more than two weeks away.
 
“It would help if I play a few games before the Olympics, come back and (help) conditioning-wise and speedwise,” Datsyuk said. “I just have two weeks and we’re doing everything to help.”
 
What busts my nuggets is that Datsyuk considers playing for the Wings before the olympics as a "conditioning" exercise in order to be ready for the olympics (which he insists on playing in even with the injury). Detroit really needs him too just as his country does but he is only contemplating playing injured for Russia. While I agree that he is injured - I just don't like that he will risk himself in Russia with this injury and potentially put himself out of Detroit longer as a result. I would hope that Detroit would be at least as important to him and not just a conditioning opportunity at this point. Maybe the language barrier makes this quote seem worse than what Datsyuk intended to say so I might be overreacting. 



#2479566 Injury Updates

I don't like that Datsyuk's plan is: to get in a few games before the olympics. When you put it like that it sounds like he just wants the couple games in Detroit for conditioning purposes for the olympics.

 

It should be - Datsyuk is trying to hurry back to help detroit before the olympic break.

Can we just take a moment to admire at what a beast Sheahan is: 14 games 9 points, +2, 0 PIM. If he played the full season like this he could have won the Calder.

OV is like "meh, ill score one later to make up for that - not worth back-checking."

Caps are being mean sob's in front of their net. Can't see how they get away with that the entire game - refs will have to stop it eventually. Decent period without any finishing. Sheahan is gonna bang one in eventually.

Definitely a growing pains type of game of the youngsters. There's just no game changers in the lineup tonight.

Why isn't the great leader Cleary taking over the game and providing the leadership we need? Z was able to spark this team on his own.

Datsyuk with the sore groin for two months. Datsyuk saw helm get away with it

This HAS to have something to do with Sochi. Like come on. From what I have read its Datsyuk who has expressed discomfort but they haven't said what specific injury he has - I'd like to know if doctors can actually quantify/see the injury itself using ultrasound.

 

Normally I wouldn't think Datsyuk the type to sit out for self preservation. But this is the last olympics he likely plays and he wears the C for the Host Nation. I'd feel pressure too to come in healthy and dominate - and I wouldn't be as upset if Z wasn't left to carry the load and go down injured.
