#2556520 12/13 GDT : Red Wings 1 @ Maple Leafs 4 *MOD WARNING POST 198*

The hockey night in canada guy is just going off about how detroit always gets away with stick in the hands more than any other team and that our first penalty was justice. 




#2556369 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by dirtydangles on 13 December 2014 - 01:40 AM

I am so torn on this. Obviously Ouellet is the most NHL ready right now and I think that Sproul has all the tools to be an absolute stud in this league if he puts things together (which I'm not sure that he is) - I originally hoped that Sproul could be a Weber-Lite.

 

But I have to say that Jensen is probably the guy for me. When I watch the Griffins live he always stands out for me at ice level. He is lightning fast and moves the puck very well. He seems like a Duncan Keith-Lite type player in my eyes when I watch him. I just think he could be a very reliable player in our system and his game will translate well to the NHL. 

 

Backman is the kind of player that you won't know what will happen until he play in the NHL. He will either light it up or he will shy away from the physicality of the game. He is fairly tall but isn't very bulky/heavy. I have no idea how well he will transition - wild card.

 

Marchenko is probably the guy I am lowest on. He just doesn't really dominate in any one facet of the game (he is okay at pretty much everything). I see a RH Ericsson in him sort of. He hasn't been quite the same for me since the ankle injury. That being said - I still like him a lot!

#2554541 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 December 2014 - 04:14 PM

Rather promote Pulks than take on Morin and make things more clogged up. If he was a 1st line scorer then okay but not a borderliner on the hawks.




#2554474 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 December 2014 - 11:08 PM

I just think more forwards is the last thing we need

Well ROR would be sweet to have when Z and Dats are gone. The guy is a stud. We would be moving a pretty substantial piece at FWD in addition to something on D in any deal for him but that won't be happening. 




#2554468 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 December 2014 - 10:43 PM

Big game for Mantha and big game for the griffins. Seems like every game I miss Mantha has a good game.

By the end of next season I would like to see:

 

Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Sproul

Ouellet - Jensen

Marchenko

 

Trade: Ericsson - Getting older and still has some value (might as well get something for him) he also doesn't do much offensively for us.

Buyout: Kindl (nobody wants him)

UFA: Quincey - I don't think he provides enough offensively to be worth keeping over our prospects. Also I think he will want to cash in big on his performance this year.

So.... Datsyuk on the third line in definitely unorthodox and I can't imagine he'll stay there for long, and the Datsyuk, Helm, Weiss line hasn't always looked cohesive out there, but at the same time, since Babs has been rolling these lines, the Wings have scored 14 goals in three games (all victories), and has had production from all four lines.  In fact, the only players to not register at least a point in the past three games are Glendening and Mrazek (yes, Howard has one too).  Even if Datsyuk is on the third line, there's no way you split these lines up until guys start cooling off.

Its not like Babs is calling it and using it like a 3rd line. Realistically every line is taking a regular shift and getting good ice time. Also the "3rd line" is one of the power play units and its not magic that the power play has clicked since the same guys have stuck together. I don't think Dats is offended to be playing with those players after playing with cleary and abby for nearly 2 seasons on the "1st line." I agree - these guys have to stay together.

At this point if Weiss can keep producing for 4 or 5 more games I think babs has to consider giving him the keys to the second line C spot. 

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abby

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Miller - Helm - Glendening

 

I would consider moving Helm in a deal in the second half of the season for an upgrade at D.

 

Kronwall - Smith

Ouellet - Dekeyser

Quincey - Ericsson (PK and shut down)

Lashoff

 

Get rid of Kindl for literally anything or waive him. 




#2552000 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by dirtydangles on 26 November 2014 - 12:47 PM

If you watch the 3rd ottawa goal the other night it was directly caused by his terribad clearing attempt. He could have been safe and iced it or thrown it to the corner. 




#2551849 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by dirtydangles on 24 November 2014 - 10:55 PM

I'm pumped for the guy going forward. The first goal he was all smiles, but the second one he was like "damn right son."

GR won 5-2 without blowing a lead for once. Mantha and Weiss had goals.

Every time Nyquist goes up against Phaneuf you see Dion hit him well before they get to the puck and cross-checks him from a few feet away from the boards to throw him off balance.

Also Big Erection has a terrible shot. Had to say it. One of the worst on the team maybe just ahead of Lashoff. 


Weiss has 2 goals so far in his 2 games in GR. He at least deserves a look with the Wings.
