#2385761 4/17 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Flames 3

Posted by evilzyme on 17 April 2013 - 08:21 PM

Is anyone watching Red Wings live? Danny DeKeyser was forced into Lidstrom's old locker because it was the only one left. They interviewed him and he was trying to not act too overly happy but my god he looked like a giggly school girl. It was beautiful

dammit, i can't believe I was rooting for Chicago a couple of days ago, and Anaheim later tonight.


Like I said in the GDT two days ago; we aren't cheering for other teams.. we're cheering indirectly for the Wings!

#2385622 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by evilzyme on 17 April 2013 - 12:16 PM

No kidding.  It's our offence that's not cutting it.  Our D has been playing really good and been chipping in with points.  We need our forwards to cash in on their scoring chances.


Yep, IIRC we're sitting 20th at goals for, and 10th at goals against. Our defense isn't the problem, especially when adding DeKeyser to the equation. The boy has helped the back-end more than we really expected. He's even considered as Babcock's final 5. If the offense would start potting them, this team could change pretty dramatically. 

#2385620 Franzen.... cares?!

Still gotta love the Mule, we know what he's capable of. He has appeared to be trying harder the past few weeks.


Playing center will make you do that :) Babcock needs to keep him there.. forever. Make that boy skate and be involved more!!!

#2385594 Franzen.... cares?!

Good I hope hes pissed. I hope hes pissed for the next 8 years. Then we may get his playoff production year round.


nothing scarier than playing against a guy with a chip on his shoulder


What he needs is the coach to also help fuel the fire, not tell him that he's performing the way he wants. Always try to get more out of your players. Babcock should know the potential of Mule and should know that he's capable of more. He should dig to get that out of him, not help reinforce the fact that he likes and is doing things good. No, I want 110%. I want it all and I want more, I want your heart on the ice, I want your sweat to turn into blood because there's nothing more you could possibly sweat out. BABY I WANT IT. GIVE IT TO ME.

#2385377 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by evilzyme on 16 April 2013 - 02:26 PM

Some new updates on Datsyuk....


23. Pavel Datsyuk's agent, Gary Greenstin, was in Toronto visiting client Mikhail Grabovski. We talked about rumours Datsyuk will play the last year of his contract next season, then go back to Russia. Greenstin said he'd just been in Detroit and talked with Ken Holland. He wouldn't go too deeply into those conservations, but it did sound like they discussed the possibility of an extension. (Datsyuk cannot sign anything until July 5.) He added that if Datsyuk stays, it will be with the Red Wings. "Playing with one team is very important to him."

^ What are you talking about?  Holland convinced Commodore to come to Detroit! :hehe:




Couldn't convince him enough to wear 64. Not good enough.

Tomorrow could be a big day for separation in the standings. Detroit plays Calgary and Columbus plays Anaheim. If we would come out with a win, and Anaheim does a huge favor in beating CBJ in regulation, we would have 2 points over Columbus with a game at hand. Minnesota plays tonight against Edmonton. If Edmonton wins, it would put us in place to tie with Minnesota, but they have 1 ROW over us. St.Louis plays Vancouver tonight, in which we need Vancouver to win.


If all those things go right come the end of Wednesday night we could be looking at this:


6- Minnesota 49 pts (19 ROW) / 43 GP

7- Detroit 49 pts (19 ROW-if we win in regulation/OT against Calgary) / 43 GP

8- St.Louis 48 pts (20 ROW) / 42 GP

9- Columbus 47 pts (15 ROW) / 44 GP

10- Dallas 45 pts (19 ROW) / 42 GP


I think I got everything correct, but others can scan over it and give me some corrections if needed.

You crossed the line, get back over here.

#2385205 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by evilzyme on 15 April 2013 - 09:24 PM

LOL righttt,

He's 38 has a wife and 2 kids he totally shouldn't worry about walking and living comfortably for the rest of his life.


He may love hockey but I highly doubt it's more important than having an enjoyable life for the rest of his (hopefully) 40+ years.


I think you're overplaying this injury like he's currently a vegetable. His back was pretty bad at first, but it's been getting better. The main objective was his push-off on one leg, otherwise he wasn't feeling that bad. He's got outstanding doctors that will ensure he is more than ready to play, remember, he has to get cleared to play.

#2385168 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by evilzyme on 15 April 2013 - 08:23 PM

I think the kids bring more value


I think you would need to define "value" then, because there is certainly not a single player in our farm system that would bring what Bert brings to the table for this team. If they did, they would've been called up and replaced his spot rather than Abby. There just isn't a single youth player in our system right now that will hold on to the puck, win puck battles, cause havok, create space, and produce as much as Bert will.


I really hope he can come back and provide what he did previously because he will change the dynamic of this team. No, I don't believe Bert is the second coming of Jesus himself, but I do believe he brings an element we need desperately in the top 6, which is someone else to actually hold onto the puck for an extended amount of time.

#2385045 Crosby left the game after puck to the face

Posted by evilzyme on 15 April 2013 - 11:59 AM

 Lol, accident.


Makes it sound like he was in a car crash.


Accident, because it was a defected puck from his own teammate. I'm positive he didn't purposely want his face to get rocked by a 60+ mph piece of rubber.

#2385007 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Posted by evilzyme on 15 April 2013 - 09:45 AM

Defenseman Danny DeKeyser, in his fifth NHL game, recorded his first point by assisting on Zetterberg's goal.


“Kindl came across and make a good play to keep the puck in,'' DeKeyser said. “He came onto my half of the ice, so I switched with him and then the puck kicked out to Pav (Datsyuk), and of course he made a good play to me and I just fired. There were some bodies in front. It happened to go wide, and Z being in the right spot had an open net to tap it in.


“It's nice when you get your first NHL point, something you kind of dream of as a kid.''


He didn't get the puck, saying “I'm saving that for the first goal.''


What a beauty. Each game I fall more in love with this kid, just absolutely love him. You can call me Don Cherry and he's my Kadri. Good stuff kid, good stuff. 


On a real note. Brunner and Goose have some chemistry together and need to stay together. They were moving the puck good, and easily could've potted one of them. I like the hustle from the team, good to see that we actually want to play come April 30th. Jimmy played out of this world the whole game, really keeping us in there during the first period. Good to see once we had our legs under us, we were full speed ahead. Cola and DeKeyser are shining stars for me right now on defense. Smith is frustrating me simply because he is trying too hard. He wants to do things that aren't available to him, in a forced style. If the shooting lane doesn't exist, don't become Sammy and throw it in the non-existent lane, go wide or distribute it. He was looking real good up until his injury, and he just hasn't caught his footing again it has seemed like. 

Kindl played well but he also made some bone head defensive plays, including the play that resulted in a penalty shot.  I wouldn't call his game fantastic last night.


I can't even make sense why the hell he thought it was a smart idea to cut to the outside man, giving his man the inside. That whole play just made me cringe on the inside, hard. Although, the actual call on the penalty shot was weak for me. His stick barely made any contact and he went down like he got tripped. It just didn't make sense to me, if anything they should've called a slash on Kindl and embellishment on the shooter (I can't remember for the life of me.. butler was it?).
