#2365651 3/5 GDT : Avalanche 1 at Red Wings 2

Tatar had a pretty bad game...

 

How did he have a "bad game"?  Because he finally didn't put up points?  Nonsense.

Why did Tatar only get like, 30 seconds with Datsyuk again? Finally shake up the lines to kickstart a, let's be honest, stagnant offense only to go right back to the same old terrible second line after Tatar fails to get a hat trick in two shifts. I think the second line is pretty reliable defensively, but Datsyuk should not be centering a grind line.

Edit: I don't mean to sound like I'm whining. Definitely glad we won. Just wish the victory was uh... more convincing.


#2364731 Trading Filppula

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 04 March 2013 - 01:59 PM

He's worth it if we don't have a chance at any of the UFAs, If we do let him walk and try and give that 4.5mil + to guys like Perry, Semin, Horton, Smid, Lubo, or hell even Iginla.

 

In a perfect world I'd rather see KH keep Filp and buy out/trade Franzen in order to make spaces for any UFAs, but we all know that isn't going to happen.

 

I'm in the boat too that Franzen would be better to trade than Flip.  Give Flip 3.8-4 mil per for a few years and then assess him again then.  He is a really good 2-way player who hustles and his only real knock is that he needs to shoot more...way more. Franzen on the other hand, while he had a good stretch of games this year, he's back to his lazy self.  He stopped hitting, he's taking weak ass shots and he doesn't hustle in the least.  I say try and trade Franzen to Calgary for a 1st round pick if they'll give it up.  I don't care if we get anything else other than a 1st cause that would give us a good shot at getting a pick close enough to get Ryan Pulock and it'll free up a roster spot to keep Tatar and maybe bring up Nyquist, both of which also hustle and don't piss off the general population of LGW.  So as far as i'm concerned, that would be win-win.

I wish I had the FSD feed. This is beyond annoying. I can't drink enough booze to drown out these bums.

You gotta switch the lines up... Zetterberg is in a slump looks very sluggish lately... Abdelkader sucks at least Cleary can shoot

Last nights whining from Canucks fans has inspired a new GDT for me.

 

Hockeytown0001 already does a fantastic job with them here so mine won't be necessary, but here is the header, which I'll add the rosters/stats and standings to.

WTF is all this 2.0 bull? Can't a player be a player? Brunner is Brunner...period. He has 10 goals in 19 games, which would equate to apprx. 42 goals over an entire season. He is/was a great find and we have Stacy Roest to thank for him, not Andersson, not Holland.  He should be re-signed, he should get about $2M and he should be our best scorer since Hossa. He has proven he can play in the NHL and deserves to stay. No way Holland lets this guy walk, he didn't cost him an asset or a draft pick. He is found money basically.  But in no way is he anyone 2.0...he is Damien Brunner and he has arrived in the NHL...Thank you Stacy.

Cleary is approaching Tatar numbers with twice the games and double the ice time!  Take that "lovers"!

Hey, does Cleary have a goal scoring streak now? I thought he was supposed to be the worst hockey player on the planet based on some of the posts here.


Players with more even strength points who play substantially less minutes:

Miller
Eaves
Tatar
Tootoo
Bertuzzi (who has played only seven games this season )



Even Lashoff has more ESP.

Cleary is terrible, his points (which are only a handful) come on the PP.

From ESPN:

 

Steve Levy:  "Vancouver is one of my favorite teams to watch.  There's drama surrounding the team right.  They win more than they lose, but they are a fun team to watch."

 

Barry Melrose:  "And diving is your favorite sport in the Olympics"

 

Steve Levy:  "Why do you gotta bring up Ryan Kessler?"

 

:lol:

Quote me a post where someone said he was awesome. 

 

Clearly had a good game tonight and the majority of his chances were not only because of Dats.  And like it or not he gets more time than Tatar because he can play on the PP and the PK.  Like I said before, he's a utility player. 

 

Cleary's been having a rough season but people underestimate the difference between the responsibilities of 10 minutes a night and those of 17+. 

 

Like I said before, he's not been great so far this season, but the bashing here is absurd.

 

I never quoted you to begin with.  Cleary looked better tonight standing in front of the net but he still looks a gear behind Datsyuk on the 2nd line.  Saying he's good on the PP and PK are ridiculous because Tatar is a far better skill player and speedster than Cleary which would work well for both of those.  To be honest I have less of a problem with Cleary being on the 2nd line than I do with Tatar NOT being on it.  This is the perfect opportunity to see what he can do with skill players while all these other guys are injured.  Cuz you know when Bert and Sammy and Franzen are better, seniority will once again win out and Tatar will either be dropped to bottom lines or sent back to GR.  To see Tatar on the 3rd when Cleary (who HAS pretty much sucked up until tonight) and Abdelkader are on the 2nd is painful.  Hell Tatar almost got Huskins a goal with his skill.  As I said before, Pavs line shouldn't spend the majority of their shift digging the puck out of the boards.  And Cleary is far from "responsible" defensively.

Cleary gets a tipped garbage goal on a PP and suddenly he's awesome?  NOT!  Tatar looks like a 2nd liner, Cleary doesn't.  Tatar scored and played well even strength all night.  Cleary had a better than usual game but he gets the majority of his chances because of Dats.  Hell even Franzen can stand in front of the net.
