#2638206 11/18 GDT : Washington Capitals at Red Wings, 8:00 EST

Posted by joesuffP on 19 November 2015 - 10:41 AM

Are you saying that it was a good play for Kindl to change at that moment?

A line change on 3 on 3 is always dangerous. It's Z's man that burns him and then the pucks squeaks through Mrazek from a bad angle. Just an all around bad shift from everybody. 3 on 3 makes the defending team look silly more often then not

We lost because we couldn't bury our chances and we took too many penalties/reffing was terrible. Washington is a much better team than us and we took 3 of a possible 4 points from them. We outplayed them until the third but we could have easily been up by a couple at that point

All in all we had those chances... 2 breakaways and many others from green helm etc... we didnt cash in. It burned us.
Dont forget they also hit the post twice.
Looking at all this... not that bad we have 1 point tonight. It could have way more disappointing

What's the difference? People look for reasons to ***** about certain players that they don't like, and turn a blind eye to mistakes by players they do like...


Are you going to try to tell me that if Smith took that penalty last game that at least 5 people wouldn't have made some sort of negative comment about it in the GDT?

Are you saying that if it were DeKeyser that Pulkkinen "went after", people would have had the same negative reaction toward DeKeyser?

Not a chance...


Smith had awful coverage on the second goal in that Dallas game, and people (rightfully so) pointed it out, but if it were LGW's golden boy, people would have shrugged it off...


Whatever though, to each their own I guess...

Usually when a goalie is traded there is a goalie going the other way. I could be wrong, but based on numbers alone I feel that's the case, no?

#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

#2614609 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by Nightfall on 15 June 2015 - 09:56 PM

Yup, if you have a team that is utter crap for 10 years, you too can build through the draft like the Hawks and win 3 cups.  Dave Talon and Stan Bowman built this team smart.


Unless your management is as worthless as Edmonton.

No matter who wins at the end of these things, I still get chills when the final horn sounds.

And I like watching the losing team cry too.
Not gonna lie.


So you liked watching the Wings cry in 2009?

#2610372 At what point does the GM deserve credit/blame?

Posted by DickieDunn on 26 May 2015 - 09:32 AM

Bowman was GM for a bit, but Holland handled most of the day to day stuff. Minimizing his contributions is just bs. When Yzerman wanted to he a GM I don't blame Holland at all for not taking a different role. He's the GM, he wanted to continue to fill that role.

#2604899 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by kipwinger on 30 April 2015 - 08:11 AM

Whelp, I've given myself about 12 hours to digest this and my preliminary thoughts are...


1)  If you don't blow leads in the third period, you'd be in Montreal already.

2)  The kids were better than they were a year ago in the playoffs, so glad to see some improvement (6 goals and 3 assists from Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan).

3)  Datsyuk and Zetterberg look ooooooooooold. 

4)  Anybody seen Zetterberg, Abby, and Helm?  Me neither.

That I will agree with lol... The team was in Florida, close to his old stomping ground, wonder if he watched from some seedy humid strip joint.  





None of the other pictures I googled were appropriate.

This is the start of the forum turning into a toilet on the verge of flushing.....


What a great series.  Wish it turned out different, but that is the way the cookie crumbles. 


Look at the bright side, the Griffins won tonight and they are going to get some horses back for their playoff run.

Posted by lomekian on 29 April 2015 - 09:07 PM

Well a series defined by sporadic scoring and piss poor officiating is decided by a terrible non-call in favour of tampa again.


A valiant effort by the wings, who ultimately lost this in the last minutes of game 4 following the non calls in that game.


Really really really missed Cole and Franzen's size as the series went on. Kindl as expected was excellent today, and Marchenko was solid too, but the Kronwall bulls*** made us overplay different combinations.


The NHL wanted us out and got its wish, and now its up to the summer, to see if reinforcements can be found. I still can't believe that Weiss wouldn't have offered more than Jurco, but there we go.

#2596491 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by cnot19 on 18 April 2015 - 11:45 PM

It's funny to me that Ericsson gets killed every mistake he makes but dekeyser who makes plenty of mistakes gets a free pass

#2592548 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing

#2577519 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 March 2015 - 01:11 PM

just want to give a huge kudo to Kenny for not caving in a trading our top prospects! He made the team better with both Cole and Zidlicky! Lost nobody of significance doing so either! Thank you Kenny! Lets Go Wings! Bring on the NHL!
