Why the f*** is Cleary on the top line ? We don't need anyone to be the net presence because Bertuzzi is there already. Cleary has shown no reason as to why he should be on the top line over anyone on the entire team. Tatar has done a better job in less games, more productive, turns bad situations into good, makes great passes to the D (which Quincey, Kindl, Smith) cannot finish.
What has Cleary done besides get 3 lucky secondary assists and fall over and turnover the puck 22 times a game. Babcock isf****** retarded, thank god he isn't picking Team Canada roster...
The Red Wings planned on recalling Nyquist on Thursday. Putting defenseman Danny DeKeyser (separated left shoulder, 3-to-6 weeks) on long-term injured reserve clears enough salary-cap space.
However, an unspecified injury to defenseman Kyle Quincey could cancel that plan. If Quincey, who didn't practice Wednesday due to "bumps and bruises,'' can't play, then the Red Wings would need to use their available cap space to recall a defenseman.
And just like that I wish Kyle Quincey would just go the f*** away. He ruins literally everything with this club.
Babcock finally listened atleast, and put someone else out 1st. Didn't work but keep changing it up. Bert probably shouldn't have shot at all, it's obvious he's trying to be way too clever. One wishes for someone to just go in and shoot like Alfie did. I think that's what Pavel needs to do also, it's beyond obvious the goalies are 100% aware of what Datsyuk is doing and unless he pulls out some crazy dekes that fool the goalie (which he obviously doesn't seem interested in doing right now) he's gotta just suprise them with a shot.
Although Pav's has been struggling, you cannot put him 3rd. He needs to be one of the two shootout shooters, if it doesn't get to the 3rd round, the it's a waste. He is almost 50% in the shootouts, and although he's been stopped 4 times this year hes too much of an asset to not have a chance.
