#2493889 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 09 March 2014 - 02:21 PM

i did suggest we should have traded Howard for Miller but got flack. Jimmy is very inconsistent to say the least, I would have give Miller 

 

a 2 year deal for his home state team and Jimmy could have gone home to NY in Buffalo! Mrazek could back up Miller for 2 years and

 

then take over full time. Monster is just to injury prone to be relied on. I still say trade Jimmy in the off season to get the top D would 

 

have to be in a package as the way he's played one for one wont get it done. No good being sentimental, if he struggles from now till

 

the end of the season we need to move him on, if we have any takers.

The injuries you couldn't have predicted but that defense was awful when the season started and its still awful.

 

More than that. It's funny everyone, including management, seems to blame injuries, but even when we had a full lineup for the first 1/4 of season, we looked awful. This is a team who barely BARELY beat Buffalo and started barely .500 before the injuries started. 

 

Point is, even with a full deck our team blows.

Worst third line ever? Sammy Weiss cleary? Seriously. Cleary and Sammy have pics of Babcock and Holland together or something.

Hum...seemed like Holland wasn't complaining about shoot outs when he had goalies like Hasek that tended to eat shooters for breakfast. 

Howard won't be our starting goalie in three years let alone five.  Petr will get the job sooner rather than later. 

I'm not sure how Jimmy can stop a puck in traffic with ten bodies in front of him, holding off deflections and rebounds but he can't stop a single

guy moving in straight at him?

 

I had a friend at practice this morning and he said very few wings were on the ice.  Hum... y'all might want to try practicing.  It might not make you perfect but

it might stop you from sucking.  I have pics he took of the locker room if anyone wants to see them.  And of the bench.  That bench looks mighty hard.  Maybe

Cleary and Sammy could try riding it??

 

I've been to every home game this year and it's just getting harder and harder to walk to the Joe.  Heck, I offered to help someone pack to get out of it tonight.

I'm tired of Babcock and his "The mule was great, after hybernating all season, he poked his head out of his den, scored twice and then saw his shadow and went back in.

We'll see him next year for another two goals".  I'm tired of his bs.  And I can't understand how Quincey has a job in the NHL.  Does anyone know how many of the goals he's been on the ice for?

So many whiners in here.  No this isnt the worst team in the last 25 years, no this team doesnt "suck".  They might "suck" in shootouts but who cares?  4th in the East and havnt lost in regulation in a while.

 

They need everyone healthy at once and we'll see whats up.

 

7 straight losses at the Joe? Howard hasn't held a lead in over 3 weeks. I like Jimmy too but not when he is consistently non clutch. There are no shootouts in the playoffs and we've lost quite a few overtime games as well. Geez,can't people just admit that the Wings are seriously underperforming here? There's nothing wrong with admitting we aren't good right now. We are all fans here. There's plenty of time to turn the season around,no doubt. We have a negative goal differential and 11 losses technically. These aren't the Red Wings we thought we'd be seeing right now. Babs has to coach this team and I just don't see him as an intense motivating/light a fire under their asses type of coach the past few years. Up 3-1 on the Cup champs was not a fluke. They didn't finish Chicago off and this is still the ongoing trend this year as well. Go for that jugular. Zetts and Pav are still awesome. We can right the ship. Just tough seeing us lose the same exact way for like 3 weeks now. Coach has to sit Jimmy for a while and realize that Samuelsson,Cleary and Bertuzzi should not be getting roster spots over Nyquist.

This is for all the Jimmy Howard fans out there ha ha Ha ha ha

Anybody here remember when Mickey said Howie is for sure a Top-5 goalie?

Capitals up next? Oh boy...they have destroyed us the past few meetings. Here's to more than two goals scored and a goaltender who can hopefully stop a bowling ball from getting behind him in a clutch situation.

Why am i seemingly the only one who thinks jimmy is really underperforming this year?

He hasnt solen anything for us this year. Always giving up fluke goals, always getting outperformed by other goalies, always collapsing under pressure in late period/games/OT, never clutch when we REALLY need him to be.

Obviously our defense isnt the best but more times than not it never is for any team.

An ELITE goaltender doesnt need a list of excuses/scapegoats for why he lost. He simply wins games. Low scoring or not. Jimmy's GAA/SV% comparitive to other goalies, most of which arent even #1's is atrocious.

He is not the future of this hockey club, fat contract to make him look better on paper or not.

/end rant.


#2428841 Abdelkader Hypothetical

Posted by darkmanx on 08 July 2013 - 04:30 PM

 

Aside from the obvious post just to knock Filppula, he scored 10 goals in a little more than half a season last year and the season before that he had 14 assists with a full season. Playing with Z and Pav for a whole year and getting some confidence/experience, I could see him doubling those numbers. I'm not saying it absolutely will happen, but it's more than possible.

 

Abby just doesn't have the skill to put up those numbers, and like I said earlier shouldn't be granted the ice time to try either. He is a good 3rd or 4th line player. He will never put up more than 35 points max no matter who he plays with. I would rather not waste the final years of Datsyuk with Abby playing on his wing. I would rather one of our young skilled forwards whether it be Tatar or Nyquist to try to learn from playing with him.




#2428667 Abdelkader Hypothetical

Posted by darkmanx on 07 July 2013 - 09:18 PM

Anyone trashing Abdelkader is being ridiculous.  Is he going to be a great player?  No.  I don't care who's line he's on.  Is he a solid player for us and very valuable member of this team?  Absolutely!  First, he hits more than almost the rest of the team combined.  Without Abby, we have very little physical presence.  He's also a willing fighter.  For being a grit type player, he's a pretty good skater with good speed.  He can definitely help on the offensive side of the things, where i think he will continue to improve.  However, he's not a sniper and never will be.  He's just doesn't have the hands or touch.  I think he's being wasted with Datsyuk b/c Pavel needs a guy he can drop it to who can fire it......a guy like Shanahan or Hull.  Maybe with Weiss we'll see more of Datsyuk and Zetterberg together.  I'd like to see what Abby can do with Helm. 

 

I don't think people are trashing on Abby. I think they hate the idea of him playing top line again in front of way more talented players, at least that's where my issue is. I see it the same as Cleary playing in the top 6.. doesn't make sense.

While it's always nice to see someone amused, these types of posts are frowned upon and usually end up deleted.  Once you are finished laughing, please share why you are so amused.  "LOL" adds nothing to the conversation.


sorry, i thought it was obvious.

predicting that abdelkader will triple his career high in goals and points made me LOL


#2428634 Question about Buying out Samuelsson

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2013 - 07:28 PM

Holland needs a Luca Brasi.  

 

 

But Holland is to blame for signing this useless player in the first place.  Just more evidence of Holland's recent stupidity in the free agent market.
