#2368276 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by darkmanx on 13 March 2013 - 06:25 AM

That was a really stupid response from Babcock on Mlive. You're sending Tatar down because he wouldn't get enough powerplay time? Did I read that correctly? Yes, I get it Flipps is better however keep him on the 3rd line and he will develop with Tootoo and Miller. 

 

All this talk of Tatar not good defensively is true however does anyone remember how awful Zetterberg was defensively in his rookie year? What about Datsyuk? it took him more then one season to become a 2-way forward. He needs more time to develop, heck Brunner is probably the worse when it comes to forechecking. 

 

I think it's something more then "Powerplay time". It has to be a trade bait thing with Nyquist or Flippula because I cannot think of any other reason.

 

It was just a lame excuse. They could fit him on the 2nd line but Babcock wants Abby there so he can turn over the puck and not stand in front of the net half the time. They should have kept Tatar up and went with

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen

Brunner - Kronwall

 

Tatar - Flip - Nyquist

Smith - Kindl

 

Now that is a lot better than having a career 4th liner with 2 points on it that has proven he hasn't done a damn thing with that time already this year.

So if the players decide who plays, who's the idiot that plays Abby and Cleary in the top 6. I guess the players make that decision as well ? I never thought I would start hating Babcock, but this is starting to get ridiculous.

And to think Nyquist can somehow make this team worse than they are right now.

Datsyuk booked a plane back to Russia. He said f*** this s***.

I would boo this team after the effort of this first period. Columbus is missing some key players and still dominating us.

I just hope that none of the people who are whining about yesterday ever have a bad day where things just don't go right for them.  They'd never be able to handle it.

 

Go Wings! 

 

Yesterday was a bad day.  It happens.  Shake it off and move on.

 

Yesterday was a bad day, but it doesn't excuse that they are getting paid millions to not show up. No one was skating competitively yesterday, it has nothing to do with people whining.




#2367259 Datsyuk - Cleary - Abdelkader

Posted by darkmanx on 10 March 2013 - 05:30 AM

Pav is playing down to their level now, he was a complete non-entity yesterday.  Only time he ever plays like that normally is when he's injured.

 

Kind of hard when you make passes that no one can handle or just turn it over. Some of the passes even yesterday Datsyuk made, most skilled players would have created scoring chances but instead Cleary and Abby just pin themselves on the boards just to turn it over.

 

I don't understand how Babcock and Holland are letting this go, everywhere I read people are calling out Babcock for that line (facebook, twitter, blogs, media articles and even on the broadcasts). I seriously have no idea what he is thinking anymore.

Thats more like our Norris candidate defensemen.

Tatar had a pretty bad game...

 

If Tatar had a bad game, please explain to me the game Cleary and Abby had.

We can't play Abby and Cleary in the top 6 against a team like San Jose. It's just stupid, I can see us getting shut out already.

Brunner is 2 goals back from Stamkos for leading the NHL. Incredible.

Zetterberg is tied for the league lead in points with 25. f*** yeah.

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.

 

This post. Get over it Cleary lovers.
