I appreciate Nyquist.

#2480520 2/3 GDT: Canucks 0 at Justin Abdelkader 2

Posted by kipwinger on 03 February 2014 - 08:22 AM

Based upon the graphics for the GDT I can safely posit only one thing.  Riley Sheahan's head is roughly 3 times the size of Patrick Eaves' head.  Given their relative TOI lately, I can only assume that Babs has some sort of head size bias.

#2478996 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by wings87 on 30 January 2014 - 04:12 PM

If Babs ever does get replaced or decides to leave, I believe it will be Jeff Blashill who would replace him.

#2476203 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

@MarkLazerus: Hossa: "It was great hockey. Lots of intensity, lots of tight battles, small holds and the referee couldn't see it." #Blackhawks #RedWings

@MarkLazerus: Marian Hossa: "That's how it is against this team. They're smart, they hold you." #Blackhawks #RedWings

Step 1: become a Blackhawk.




One thing though: we need better goaltending. 


Truly. Monster was clutch in the shootout, but man oh man did he look shaky for most of the game. I mean, I get that that's sort of the way he plays, but this was NOT the Monster we grew so very fond of earlier this season.

This is the Darkest Timeline.

#2473399 1/16 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Rangers 1

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 16 January 2014 - 08:00 PM


Babs was probably so excited he sewed it on himself.


Jurco looks like the real deal. Between Tatar, Nyquist, Andersson, Sheahan and Jurco I believe we can stand with losing some of them in a trade

Yes, we can trade Andersson and keep the rest.

Lose andersson n sheahan.

Keep jurco/nyquist/tatar

Have you watched Sheahan play this year?  He's a great 200 foot player that is big, hits, is gritty and can chip in with offence and is really good on the PK.  He's a bottom 6 guy that you keep for sure.

#2473108 Buffalo Sabres unveil new third jerseys

Posted by Jedi on 15 January 2014 - 12:34 PM

It goes along with most of the decisions the Sabres seem to make. 
The logo for their third jersey should be a team tanking for a draft pick.

Edmonton would sue for copyright infringement.

#2473084 Datsyuk - Team Russia captain for Sochi

To think the Wings could have had 3 Team Captains in the Olympics if only Cleary had made the Canadian roster. 

#2471459 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by Hairy Lime on 09 January 2014 - 09:15 AM

Dirty Harry Callahan




Yes, but I still think it's unfair that he gets to use a .44 Magnum. I think it gives him an unfair advantage on the ice. No goalie is going to stop that shot. Well, maybe Hasek ... with his teeth! 

#2465359 Why the Red Wings get injured

2 threads about enforcers.  


Its official.  Its mid-season for the Red Wings. This happens every......single......year...... lol

#2465346 Why the Red Wings get injured

If ONLY we had an enforcer to keep that herniated disc of Z's in line...


...and to make sure that pesky groin of Weiss' would be held accountable...


...or that Howard's knee wouldn't dare tweak itself...


For the record.  Detroit (as of yesterday) sat at 10th in the league in terms of Man-Games-Lost-To-Injury, at 110.  The #8 team, Montreal, is at 122 games lost.  Yet, Montreal currently ranks 3rd in fighting majors at 22.  Columbus is 5th in games lost to injury, 130, and 7th in fighting majors at 20.  Tampa Bay is 7th in games lost at 123, and 13th in the league with 17 fighting majors.  Toronto leads the league in fighting majors at 26, yet is only 2 spots back from Detroit with 97 games lost.


I just did the math.  The average # of games lost to injury by any team this year is a smidge over 93 games (93.066666667, etc).  Detroit's at 110, which is above average, but not astonishingly so, especially given that Detroit is tied for dead last in the league at 4 fighting majors.


As it stands, the statistics don't necessarily agree that having players who are more willing to "enforce" (a.k.a. willing to drop the gloves) translates into less games lost due to injury...

#2464043 Howard out 2-4 weeks with MCL sprain

Posted by rick zombo on 13 December 2013 - 12:51 PM

This Every season has been a nightmare of injuries.


I can't remember the last full season the Wings were relatively healthy.

Edit: Would anyone like to see Drapes give it a shot?  He seems more personable than Ozzie.

Helene St James and Ansar Khan tweeting that Cleary is a healthy scratch

Hmmm.. could've sworn the new cba prohibited that.... I mean based on the season so far anyway :P
