#2450293 11/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Oilers 0

Honestly, having Helm back on the ice is more exciting then trading for a new player.

 

Is that you Ken Holland ?

Brendan smith everybody.

 

Absolutely useless.




#2449520 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Then he can take his '2 good chances' and go to the third line while Tatar can get a promotion to create more then '2 good chances'.

This is what is concerning to me, if we keep that pace we will be in the bottom in a matter of games.




#2447678 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by darkmanx on 24 October 2013 - 08:14 PM

This has been a long time coming and isn't going to change for a couple of more years. We have been bleeding high end talent for years. We haven't drafted well at the forward spot. The last high end talent we developed was Z and datsyuk. You don't lose high end talent like Shanny, Yzerman, Hull, Federov, Hosa, etc.... and replace them with journeyman type players and maintain high end results.

Now what can be done with what we have? Not much. We keep running out the same guys year after year after year and expect different results. Not everyone can play at a high level until they are 40. Those that haven't been at a high level are not going to find it late in their careers.

The team is also mismatched in talent. The young D men are all bigger types who skate well and are good at shooting the puck into the O zone. But most of the talent up front is still better at possessing the puck.

Yes this is frustrating, but it will take time before things get better.

 

Maybe we aren't giving some of our higher end talent any chances to prove themselves. Instead we have Cleary and Samuelson showing why exactly they shouldn't have been signed.

Alfie has 5 points in 6 games so far, but for some people on this forum he isn't playing good enough.




#2442441 Detroit @ Boston 10/14. 1pm start time?

From what I've seen of HNIC over the years, you're lucky if they mention any non-Toronto teams.

 

Not true. The panel talks about other teams. They absolutely love Pavel Datsyuk, especially Weekes and Stock.

They have a ton on Zetterberg as well.

Subban, Meet Pavel Datsyuk.




#2437060 9/16 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 4 at Penguins 1

Posted by darkmanx on 16 September 2013 - 08:32 PM

Standouts: 

 

Good - Tatar, Datsyuk, Howard, Dekeyser, Kindl, Ferraro

 

Bad - Cleary, Samuelsson, Smith

 

Nice game, though the Pens really didn't seem to bring it. Barely noticed Crosby. 

 

Almquist says Hi.




#2435360 Canadian Olympic Jerseys Leaked?

Posted by darkmanx on 07 September 2013 - 08:47 AM

These jerseys are complete ass, who did they leave in charge of the jerseys. The only thing I can relate the gold border that is around the leaf is the color of Maple Syrup.
