#2593114 Brendan Smith

Posted by darkmanx on 14 April 2015 - 07:57 AM

I am impartial to Smith and don't really care if he's on the team next year or not. However, I don't think he's been given the proper chance to succeed, Babcock is giving him the Weiss treatment and not playing him to his strengths. No point in pointing out his offensive stats when he doesn't get any PP time.

Uncle Bob tweeted that Buffalo has relieved Ted Nolan of coaching duties...

 

That's a joke. The GM gives him a horrible roster, they basically tank the entire season on purpose. Then when they finish last, they fire him?

 

wtf???

#2592696 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by darkmanx on 12 April 2015 - 04:08 PM

You want successful regular seasons you have to look at 01-02, or 07-08 or the ones one they got atleast a top 3 seed. This team hasn't been a Cup contender heading into the playoffs since the 2009 post season as since then they have been longshot dark horse teams. Successful regular season is when pretty much all of your series open at the Joe remember them?
 
In the 90's when the Wings had postseason results that mirrored the ones they had from 2010-present coaches were fired and if not for 97 Cup I bet Scotty Bowan would've been given the axe shortly after. Don't give me cap excuses b/c last time I checked a cap existed from 05-06 to 08-09 and the Wings were seeded no lower than #2 heading into each of those postseasons and were considered Cup favourites.
 
Since game 7 2009 this franchise has headed downhill for the most part as that game served as the end of a chapter in Wings lore. Right now we are in the 2005-2013 New England Patriots but I think our cup drought will last longer than the Patriots SB drought!

#2590070 Playoffs don't have shootouts?

Posted by darkmanx on 07 April 2015 - 05:23 PM

How about fix the PK

Red Wings PK:

1st half of season = 86.8% (4th)
2nd half = 74.5% (30th)




#2589903 Tatar and Nyquist and Sheahan LINE

Posted by darkmanx on 06 April 2015 - 08:30 PM

You right, you right.

 

Still I think put three best young-stars on the same line. Either from last year or this year. But good point!


Um yeah. Our two leading goal scorers rarely score anymore. And aren't playing very good.

 

Sorry but take off your blinders. Tatar can barely get the puck out of the zone or get a shot off/not blocked.

 

Tatar has 3 goals in the last 10 games. Most important games of the season mind you.


Well let them develop slower and against less tough defensive forwards on the third line....

 

How many goals does Zetterberg have in the last 10 games? or better yet, how many goals does Jurco have in the last 10 games? I mean you want him on the 2nd line. How many goals does Helm have?

 

Great analogy: "If you lead the team in goals, but then slump we will bury you on the 3rd line, that way we can score more goals."




#2589729 4/5 GDT : Washington Capitals 2 at Red Wings 1

Toronto beat Ottawa and held them to 1 point.

 

The cup is ours now.




#2589411 4/5 GDT : Washington Capitals 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by darkmanx on 05 April 2015 - 04:45 PM

He really is. . Terrible pass right to Washington and not ready for the pass from Nyquist on the PP.

 

Yea how about Nyquist shoot in when in the slot instead of making a bad pass. But let's blame Weiss anyways...




#2589297 Is Hank too slow and ineffective to play center?

Posted by darkmanx on 05 April 2015 - 12:14 PM

He played center in Sweden, early in his NHL career, and whenever he isn't with Datsyuk later on. He is a center.

 

but NHL 15 has him a LW




#2588767 Erik cole - what the hell's going on with him ?

Posted by darkmanx on 03 April 2015 - 03:27 PM

Didn't say holland is a moron for not knowing he'd get hurt ... But if he never plays again the trade becomes meaningless , we got him to make an impact and help us win games

And to the person who said he scored goals and helped us win games he scored 3 and one was in a 7-2 win which wasn't a factor

The point of this three believe it or not was just to find out what's going on with Coles injury cause it be nice to have him (especially in the playoffs , if we get in)

We could use his physical presence

Never bitched about cole ... Just trying to figure out his injury status

As for weiss I said it since day 1 ... He was overrated when we got him and he hasn't done anything since we got him and has been.an awful signing ... Injuries or not ... Sorry if that pisses you off

 

Ok so his 2 goals helped us win. In fact he scored one that turned to be the tying goal in which we went on to win the game. Without that goal we probably have 2 less points.

 

Also, by your analogy we should never make trades because if we do and the guy gets injured then it's bad. Well genius you usually make trades to improve your team. You complained last year about trading Jarnkrok, it's not surprising your bitching again because someone "might" not make it back before the end of the year.

 

LGW never change...




#2587771 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by darkmanx on 01 April 2015 - 06:28 AM

Coaching is the LAST problem with the Wings.  It's the Defense!  Plain and simple!  We have ONE .... one top four D man.  The rest are all 5,6,7s.  Danny will be there but he has no mentor as Kronner is fried.  It is the D!

 

Ok so a D man who has 29 points, and is a +12 is not a top four D man? Sure DD has had a couple bad games, but I have no idea what games you watch to consider him only a top 6 D man.




#2587646 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by darkmanx on 31 March 2015 - 09:22 PM

Abby is our best goal scorer right now and scored on a couple breakaways this month, yet he doesn't even get a chance? Also, Jurco or even Pulks are better shooters then Zids and Weiss....
