#2591941 Brendan Smith

Posted by nawein on 10 April 2015 - 07:28 AM

What frustrates me most about Smith is he'll occasionally have a good stretch of games and then right when you start thinking along the lines of "okay, looks like he could be trending toward the solid defenseman we hoped he would" and then he'll have a couple bad games and regress right back to me not being a fan of his play..

I understand everyone goes through growing pains and all that but, at what point does the inconsistency stop being considered "growing pains" and become just a part of who that player is?

Who knows. I'm still waiting for Ericsson to grow out of some of his "growing pains."

I'm in the camp that wants us to get rid of Smith. He's dumb. I've said that for years and it's still the case. Trade him while they still are seen as growing pains.

#2590814 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Posted by Desert Rat on 08 April 2015 - 09:05 PM

Sadly I just lump this Cole news in with all the other terrible things that have happened to our beloved Wings. Modano was supposed to come in and give us one of the best third lines in hockey.

If I remember correctly Igor Grigorenko was supposed to be a special young player and was never the same after a terrible car wreck.

Jiri Fischer was going to be at worst the best #3 Dman in the NHL and his heart stops.

Franzen has been labeled a sucky floater by most (including me) it turns out he's probaby had 10 concussions or something. I understand his playing timid now.


I know injuries are part of life but we've had some awful things happen that really get me down thinking about it.

Really have missed the big body presence of late, which is one of the reasons I liked the Cole trade.

Cleary Bertuzzi has balls and this team needs testicles Bertuzzi right now.



#2590070 Playoffs don't have shootouts?

Posted by darkmanx on 07 April 2015 - 05:23 PM

How about fix the PK



Mike Kelly ‏@MikeKellyNHL
Red Wings PK:

1st half of season = 86.8% (4th)
2nd half = 74.5% (30th)

#2589871 Axel Holmström is having a great playoff so far.

Posted by Ekmanc on 06 April 2015 - 04:03 PM

Axel Holmström now has 13 points in 9 games in the SHL playoffs and is on the way to breaking the old points record by a junior which is held by Daniel Sedin.



There's been some really nice goals so far! they can be seen here: 



Pretty decent run so far, especially since he's spent much of the time on the fourth line.

I will be at the Joe tonight to celebrate Mr. Hockey's birthday.  Wings are (hopefully) planning a nice present for him in the form of a win.


Happy Birthday, Gordie!

#2585786 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 26 March 2015 - 11:42 PM

Won't happen but I'd like to see Marchenko or ouellet back in for a few games ... I'd rather have the steady dman with few turnovers at this point over someone like smith/kindl

I see a marchenko/zidlicky duo being pretty good

"When you are playing from behind every shift is an emergency and that causes turnovers…we have to keep the puck out of our net. Petr will get a chance now." -Babcock


I don't disagree with the sentiment, but what about when turnovers lead to playing from behind? I don't think anyone's going to argue that Howard's been inconsistent and oftentimes lousy since returning from injury, but this team hasn't been helping their goalies at all lately. I think it's fair to call out Howard at this point, but you've got to be calling out Nyquist and Ericsson too, and you've certainly got to call out your team defense. Howard hasn't been great, but no one on this team has been much better lately.

If Mrazek gets us into the playoffs, there's no way Howard will start.  Even Babcock isn't that stupid.  You don't punish a young goalie who carries you into the playoffs by benching him once the playoffs begin.  Bad for morale.  
This could be the last (hopefully) that we've seen of Howard as the number one goalie.

He punished Kindl for scoring a goal and making a beautiful breakaway pass on Abdlekader's goal last game but doesn't punish Ericsson for being useless. He punishes Weiss for turning the puck over vs Boston but refuses to punish Nyquist, who turned the puck over at least six time tonight. I say he has the potential to be "that stupid".

Rather than debate who is better and being reactionary, let's just roll with who wins.  Right now that seems to be Mrazek.

No excuses here. Arizona is horrific this year so this needs to be a stomping.

I wouldn't laugh too hard, we're one injury away from our number 1 center being Glendening. ;)



:scared:   Don't you put that evil on me!
