#2580898 3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 March 2015 - 07:12 PM

Yeah I dunno wtf Andersson is doing on this team. Surely theres someone better in GR to call up.

Stephen Weiss? I don't love the guy, but he brings way more than Andersson ever will.

4th line again Babs... ffs.

Glendening on the first line, Ericsson on the top pair, the 4th line being used as a "shutdown" group when they clearly aren't cut out for that.

Great coach, but man does he make some really stupid decisions.

#2580602 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 10 March 2015 - 04:34 PM

Pretty sure jurco glendening Franzen datsyuk zetterberg sheahan are capable of killing penalties and all 4 lines would be a threat to score at all times

We DO NOT want Z or Datsyuk killing penalties. If they do, they're forced to play way too many minutes and their offensive games would suffer. Also, Franzen's not that great at killing penalties.


We don't need 4 scoring lines and the defensive side of our game would suffer too much. Miller will always go under-appreciated, it seems...

Weiss has a bad night, scratched. Andersson does nothing whole career, plays for some reason. He's officially the new Kopecky.


After the last 2 gong shows, it'd be nice to stomp the Oilers tonight and get back on track. LGW!

#2580131 Gus injured; Mrazek re-called

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 08 March 2015 - 05:28 PM

Idk why you guys think Mrazek is going to do any better than Howard did against Calgary or how Gus did tonight. Have you forgetten that Mrazek too has let in 4-5 goals per game. MULTIPLE times. I think he went on a stretch (3 games in a row?) where he left 4,5 goals in consecutively. Yes I do believe Mrazek is a great goalie but lets not get too excited that he's some elite goalie that's going to save us. The wings have to play tighter in general in order to prevent these massacres from occuring.
I am definitely looking forward to Mrazek's puck handling to help the D out in a few games down this stretch tho.

He's 22 and it's normal he will have a few hiccups but he'll have way many better performances than bad ones ... A few of monsters goals he let in today were embarrassing

Mrazek is the future ... Gus will be in Sweden in a few years

Having lived in Michigan until a year ago when I headed down south, I can't help but laugh at how people get so worked up about a little snow. But at this point, I'm terrified of the roads down here now too. It's not the snow though, it's the idiots who have no idea how to drive in it and assume they can tear through traffic as usual because they're in a pickup truck. Ridiculousness all around. I miss the north...

#2579890 3/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 5

Posted by GoWings1905 on 08 March 2015 - 12:47 PM

Is there any good reason Weiss is getting PP time over Pulkkinen? Glendening on Pav's wing, Ericsson never leaves the top pairing, Jurco benched for Andersson. Just stupid coaching.

I'm done with Babs coaching decisions. Why is our backup playing against Boston with the Oilers tomorrow?

#2579655 3/6 GDT : Flames 5 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 07 March 2015 - 03:06 AM

Big E should be in


Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive 3m3 minutes ago

Ericsson said he's ready to play tonight. Hurt shoulder on Wednesday, sat out practice as precaution.


The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose 2m2 minutes ago Detroit, MI

#RedWings Jonathan Ericsson said he'll play tonight, but added it's up to the coaching staff to put him in tonight.


Would have been better if he didn't play.

Please get Jurco off Datsyuk's line.

#2578928 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Dynheart on 05 March 2015 - 12:02 AM

I'm not understanding the Rag's fans. They lost. So what is they put a lot of shots on net. Whoop-dee-doo. How many games/series has the Wings lost over the years looking like that? It's about the timely goals; and this team has that in spades.


Lack of skill? Whatever. You can't be the number 1 PP in the league without skill. Honest opinion? Sore losers. They expected to wipe the floor with the Wings, because you know...they are the supposed "cup favorites". The Wings? This team was never supposed to make it to the playoffs according to critics and HFboards "critics", so as far as they are concerned? Over achievers AKA just a bubble team, AKA easy win.


Looks like they are a fan base that doesn't know how to handle the success of the team they root for. Horrible winners, and sore losers. Hate to read the web-sites I go to if they win the cup. Ugh.


Do I think this team can go all the way? Small chance. Do I think this team can make a huge splash? Hell, yea! Much bigger than any other fan base give this team credit for. I predict some salt coming the other way come playoff time courtesy of the Red Wings.


Side note. Whats with the personal attacks? So the RED WINGS win, and they say crap like "at least I don't live there." Really? Stay classy, eh. 

#2578307 LeBrun: Babcock for COY and Holland for GMOY

Pierre LeBrun is a Canadian and TSN guy who happens to contribute articles to ESPN....he's legit...wouldn't write it off just because it's from ESPN.



#2577861 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by T.Low on 03 March 2015 - 01:50 AM

...this is a great trade for the Wings. We lost two prospects who have zero future here. Two prospects who have very little value. And by trading them, this team has a better shot at a deep playoff run.

It's really this simple. Why is this so hard to see?

Nyquist sucks in the top six. He's a sweetheart, but a waif. Let him eat up third line opposition while the adults do the hard work against the big boys.

#2577769 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 02 March 2015 - 06:15 PM

Not sure if it's already been posted here, but the team seemed to suggest he'll wind up with Z.

Ken Holland calls the trades to get Zidlicky and Cole more of depth moves. Mentioned Erik Cole playing on a line with Zetterberg. #Wings

And are Cleary and Cole REALLY being compared? Cole's scored more goals than Cleary's played this year.


People are just looking for ANY reason to be negative. Kenny makes two great trades for the first time in forever, and people still slaughter him. I'm as skeptical of the "kicking tires" and "we like our team" crap, but the man deserves his due. We got better in the last 2 days and have just as good a chance of any team in the East to go on a run.

#2577519 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 March 2015 - 01:11 PM

just want to give a huge kudo to Kenny for not caving in a trading our top prospects! He made the team better with both Cole and Zidlicky! Lost nobody of significance doing so either! Thank you Kenny! Lets Go Wings! Bring on the NHL!
