#2509719 Round 1 Line Combinations

You guys are going to hear a lot of bitching from me if Jurco isn't with Tatar, and Abby is on the top line. 

#2506918 Detroit could be dangerous come playoff time...

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 06 April 2014 - 09:43 PM

I feel sad so many of you are so deluded. It couldn't be more pathetic if you thought Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy were going to help the Wings out. Boston or Pittsburgh will chew us up and spit us out like seeds in an orange. We are pathetic in D and goal and we will be utterly destroyed IF we even make it to the playoffs. Nobody is afraid of us. This is not being a bad fan, this is NOT being a homer and being a realist. 

Do you remember last year? I do. That doesn't make me deluded. I was much more scared of Anaheim last year than I am of 2014 Pittsburgh.

#2506853 A plea to Holland.

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 April 2014 - 11:04 AM

said it before and I'll say it again. We need two veteran defensemen to bridge this team before Ouellet and Sproul are ready in two years. Dump Kindl, go ahead a waive Lashoff and don't even let Quincey call you this summer.


Sign any two of Morris, Mitchell, Boyle, Orpik or Weaver. Bring up Marchenko to be #7.

#2506821 A plea to Holland.

Complaining about someone is more effective if you spell his name right.  

Let's contribute to the thread constructively instead of pointing out an auto-correct when you obviously know who he is talking about. There's no need to drag the topic off the rails unnecessarily when modern technology makes a minor error. Thanks.


On topic, i've been in this mindset for weeks, the kids are working, they are scoring, they provide energy. 


The defense is an obvious problem right now, it was the offense, and it was addressed by calling up prospects that have thrived. Logic tells me that doing the same for defense may have the same result. Give one or two of the defense prospects a chance, especially if we secure a playoff spot and have a few games remaining to test it out.

#2505594 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by rrasco on 03 April 2014 - 07:07 PM

I'll give him props for last nights game! He played great and kept us in a game we had no business being in, and he deserves credit for that.


But I'm also going to post what I posted on The Malik Report


Malik is crazy.  Is Howard the new Franzen?  "Yeah he did good, BUT he could be better so he still sucks."  That logic makes no sense.


Sure, it would be nice if Howie was a good puck-handling tender, but he's not, and to expect him to become amazing at it is an unreasonable expectation, especially while making a claim he puts no effort into it.


I perfectly understand the argument, but there are still plenty of Howard haters.  It's nothing new in Detroit to be rough on goalies, so I guess it is to be expected.

#2505464 Question about Mantha

Posted by GoalieManPat on 03 April 2014 - 09:28 AM

I wonder If Holland is still considering calling him up this season. Not that we need him, but if we lock up a playoff spot it might be a good idea to let him play the last game. Then again, our team is finally developing great chemistry.


Unless he walks into Grand Rapids and scores a hat trick in his first 3 games Id say you have a better chance of winning the lottery than seeing him with the Wings. Remember hes been playing against kids. Lets see how he does against men in the AHL.

Any way you look at it the new system is stupid.

#2504384 Injury Updates

The last couple of posts really just seriously explain why the whole new playoff format is just a load of bs. Seriously. Everyone knew what happened, and it was clear and obvious. Division winner top 3 seeds, and the rest battle it out for 4-8. Top plays bottom, and then re-seeding in subsequent rounds. How simple yet effective? It just drives me insane that this league seems to seriously just ruin every good thing that comes about. 


Sorry. Rant over. 

#2504331 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by marcaractac on 01 April 2014 - 09:54 AM

The Buffalo and Carolina games are my concern. Losing either of those could be catastrophic. You'd have to think those teams would love the chance to contribute to ending the streak. Wings gotta be on their toes and play complete games.

#2504242 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

My absolute favorite part of that Nyquist goal was when Mickey says "Oh My.........Oh My God"  :notworthy:

I too like the line changes. That first line was a no show.

#2501723 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Correction to Lines:

Jurco Legwand Mule
Tatar Sheahan Nyquist
Alfie Helm Andy
Miller Glend Bertuzzi

Muchhhh better. Keep alfie off the top line, him n mule together is no good.

#2501718 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Posted by T.Low on 27 March 2014 - 09:35 AM

Nyquist is going to have to step it up. His 2 goals a game isn't getting it done. He needs 4 goals tonight for us to have a chance at winning.
