#2673227 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by VM1138 on 23 April 2016 - 07:27 PM

You're splitting hairs. He's won one more playoff game and had what 2 more regular season wins? If he's "better" the difference is negligible. Efforts to paint Blashill as some kind of failure are almost entirely attributable to a frustrated fan base which is unaccustomed to transitioning teams.

 

Well, there's also no doubt that Babcock had a worse team and yet performed better. So there's that.  I agree, though, that a lot of the anti-Blashill stuff is just frustration, which is why I don't want him gone. But he did, beyond a doubt, screw up and botch things especially late in the season.  But coaches have growing pains just like players.  If he has another terrible year next year with a similar roster, then we should start talking replacements.

Tampa Bay, two minutes, too many men on the ice.

 

The Red Wings decline the penalty, second down.

It feels like we've been through so many "must-win" games this season, but today's game, which would possibly be the last of the season, will be a true must-win. Should the Wings lose, I don't think I'd be as disappointed compared to the past few years, but I think the effort they put into it will matter more than anything to me. If anything, I hope the team gives it everything they've got for Pavel Datsyuk, as tonight could be the very last time we see  him in the winged wheel. Here's to a great game. Here's to Pasha.

 

Red Wings 4 (Datsyuk, Larkin, Tatar, Green)

I'm pissed too but you guys are freaking paranoid.

It doesn't take orders from Holland to make a coach favor the veterans in a crisis. They didn't step up but I can at least see the logic in giving them the chance. Beyond that Blashill is just stubborn and not very good at adapting. He's not sure of himself yet and hesitated to make leaps of faith. It's not a giant conspiracy.

And seriously, bashing Swedes in general? Hockey fans can be some of the most delusional xenophobes out there.

This sucked but Jesus I hope some of you jump off the bandwagon.

Back to work in game 5. Gotta keep working. Get a lead and get a win. Get back home.

Wings will be OK.  Life goes on.   Nyquist will come into his own and we will be fine.  Have a nice life, Pasha, we love you endlessly.

Moving Z to the third line could be a big rallying moment for the team. Counting on him to score at this point is just ridiculous. There's nothing about his game that suggests he's an offensive threat and yet, we count on him game in game out to be our go to guy.




#2658352 Larkin needs a rest

Posted by vladdy16 on 09 March 2016 - 06:54 PM

Richards sucks. It's easy to see. Why do they keep poisoning Larkin with this guy?

You really kind of had to reach on that one.  Quit complaining about Richards in every single thread.  Start a thread about him if you want.

We are a sniper away from being a serious competitor. So many one goal games. We can compete with every team in the league and we only lose by a goal. If we had a pure scorer we could be on the winning side more

Wings - only wings. Can't give any of my emotional support and willpower to any other team - it would be a waste.
