Idk.
I'm expecting some sort of fine after the game.


A first offense should just get a warning.

1st, awesome GDT as always.

2nd, that third line though. That's the kind of depth you need in the playoffs.. I'm so stoked for the rest of the season/post season.

Call me crazy but I think we win in the shootout, 3-2. Tatar and nyq each score in regulation and the shootout.
LGW!!


Edit: regulation* :P

Helping this chain of (somewhat on topic) hi-jinx come to fruition may be my proudest moment on this forum.. Long live Justin Maple Spitter.

My wife used to call Cleary "Celery"



Sometimes I like to call abdelkader "Apple Fritter."

Agreed it's just a hockey thing. Mostly a teammate to teammate kind of thing.. People posting online hear short nicknames in interviews sometimes so they repeat them.

And, like all things on the internet, some people get carried away.


#2577959 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Ah gotcha. Yea shuffling lines with two new guys is to be expected. Especially when you don't lose any roster players.

I was just joking around about how Babcock seems to like shuffling lines quickly and often.. while also referencing himym a little :P

Would like to see them rest Quincey a few games and roll with....

Kronner-Smith
DD-Zid
Ericsson-Marchenko

Gives Smith a little more responsibility; hopefully he runs with it.

DD-Zid I have a feeling would be a great pairing.

And Ericsson on the bottom pairing gives Marchenko more of a veteran presence.


I think it's at least worth a try like that. If Quincey needs some more rest anyway.

Personally, I'd rather see our bottom six be:

Pulks-Weiss-Jurco
Miller-Glendog-Andy

See if that third line can get a little offense going.

"@AnsarKhanMLive: Lines:

Cleary rotating in."


"@AnsarKhanMLive: Quincey moving well as he Smith and Marchenko skating together.
Kronwall with Ericsson as usual and Kindl continues skating with DeKeyser."

"@AnsarKhanMLive: Power play units:

#2574893 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Posted by amato on 25 February 2015 - 08:21 PM

 
Long as the player(s) they pick up are UFA. If not, they'd have to do some scrambling before next season to get Kane back in and be under the cap. Plus either way they lose whatever assets they gave up to fetch those guys. I guess it could be worth it for a shot at another cup, especially if Kane gets back while they're still playing...


Yeah I was definitely thinking UFA(s).. and they'd have to give up some assets. So it'd definitely be a bit of a gamble. Depends on how they feel about their shot at the cup this year I suppose.


#2574363 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by amato on 24 February 2015 - 11:54 AM

Howard will start the next two years at least, mraz will start backup duties next season.

After that, they'll split time for a year.. riding the hot goalie.

Then consider trading howard during/after that season when he has one year left on his contract.

 

That's what I think anyway.. depending on the wings' cap situation and if Mraz develops like he's expected to. 

 

 

 

To answer the original question though, yes. obviously howard is our playoff goalie. 

He's had a couple rough games.. it happens to all goalies; especially ones coming off of injury. 

There's plenty of time for him to get hot before playoffs start.
