#2383024 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 11 April 2013 - 02:28 PM

All of my friends (mostly Leaf fans) are already claiming the streak is finally coming to an end. I really want to make the playoffs.
It might be my homer glasses, but I think if we sneak in 8th we can upset the Blackhawks.
Here's hoping!

 We have as much of a chance to beat the Hawks as the Leafs have of beating the Bruins.  It CAN happen.   I wouldn't bet money on it, but I actually believe we can take down the Hawks.

I guess this is kind of a needless rant post, but is this guy for real? I saw today that he didn't practice again because he has a "sore pectoral muscle." Have some pride man...there are guys out there who play with broken bones, I mean cleary basically skates on one leg. Step it up and help the team or good riddance.



#2382462 Helm might be out for season

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 09 April 2013 - 12:30 PM

Lame, as much as I love Helm he literally has proved to be useless this year and a good portion of last.

 You mean just like Crosby has to the Penguins?  Dude severed his wrist last year in the 1st playoff game and has a severe back issue this year.  Not much can be done about this kind of stuff.  Just like Crosby taking a clapper off the chicklets.  These things just happen in the NHL.

I'm surprised Helm won't be playing this season......said nobody who's been following his injury this year.


More surprising is Babcock saying that Flip is being dropped to centering the 3rd line now between Cleary & Brunner with Miller moving up to the 2nd with Franzen & Nyquist.

 The most surprising part of it is that I though it was reported a couple weeks back that he was practicing with the team and that he was close to a return??  Moving Flip down spreads more wealth to all 3 lines, though i'd like Goose with Brunner, it may help us get more than 0 goals next game having offense spread on 3 lines.  Glad that Brunner will be back too. As for Helm, he must have tweaked something or re-injured his back to be out for the rest of the season.

This team relies on Datsyuk and Howard to win games for them way too much no one else seems to have any impact overall. Couldn't even manage a goal and now have back2back losses coming up from SJ and CHI. So sad that the Blue Jackets or Oilers will bounce the Red Wings for that final playoff spot.


Well then don't watch so you won't be disappointed.

We did nothing at the trade deadline and we are getting exactly that.

Flip = No factor

He also committed some unpleasant giveaways, but those occurred mostly from inexperience with the system.


I thought turnovers were the system.  


Has been this season, at least.

Lucky win


But screw off to all the Datsyuk haters tonight.

#2380762 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 April 2013 - 12:51 PM

lmao seriously you cannot be serious.. we can poll 1000 red wings fans and i can get 995 would say he's garbage. 

 Kindl has been "garbage" the past 2 games.  Other than that he's actually transformed into a good Dman for the Wings.  The main problems on our blue line are the odd rookie mistake, but we're in a transition so those are excusable, and guys like White, Coliacovo and Quincey being "garbage".

#2380787 Nyquist thoughts

Posted by Dabura on 05 April 2013 - 02:02 PM

There was one shift, it was recent, against the Avs. I think. If memory serves, we were bumbling around in our own zone. General stupidity and laziness and a touch of sheer incompetence. But then, Glory Be to God, Nyquist got ahold of the puck and, all of three seconds later, he was tearing into the o-zone like some kind of human missile thing. I don't remember what happened after that, but I'll tell you what, I'm generally very cynical, pessimistic about this team, and so it takes a lot for me to go, "Wow." And I went "Wow." It made me realize how slow of foot - and teeth-gnashingly namby pamby - we generally are. It was refreshing. It was pretty awesome.

As requested, pictures.  I stopped taking pictures of the game when we started sucking.  Sorry for s***ty quality.


Warmups.  Good luck, Cleary.  We all know you need it.




Zetterprofile :wub:




Coca Cola pulled his groin immediately after this picture was taken.



Gametime!  Opening faceoff:




It's my Toots in a box!  My Toots in a box, baby...




Franzen doing...whatever it is that he does best.




Kronner's sick of your s***, refs.




Whatever.  LGW.

 Franzen was picking his nose there dude.  It got stuck for a few shifts.

they suck that is all, lost to a team full of plugs and a backup goalie


bless Datsyuk but the team is not good


i hope im wrong on this but goodnight sweet playoff streak


 That's why I refer to many of our players as "line-up tampons".  All they do is stop a little of the bleeding and fill a hole.  The girls may not enjoy this analogy, but can admit it's truth and it's comparison for some of our guys.  We sign Danny D and he gets to watch some Red Wing hockey, although not exactly what he grew up watching.  Coliacovo is a line-up tampon and his spot belongs to Dekeyser, whom Holland asked to join the team to make it better.

And Babs was worried about putting in DD... Would have been an improvement by the looks of these games...

We don't need Tatar.
Goals and hunger are overrated in hockey.

good thing that gaborik guy didn't come to Detroit.  I mean a goal and assist?  Who needs that?!?!?!

#2379913 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 03 April 2013 - 08:25 PM

Yep. Give him more minutes and better linemates and we will see more of that

Like when he gave Brunner a beauty of a pass last game and helped him snap a 16 game goal drought.  I certainly like that pair.
