#2260452 2/21 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2

Posted by Winged Wheel on 21 February 2012 - 11:07 PM

Holland's got his work cut-out for 'em. Never gonna win the Stanley Cup with this team and it was pretty obvious tonight. The better teams in the league win on the road and Holland cannot stand pat with this roster if they're gonna win anything. Without Datsuyk they're done and you can't expect Zetterberg to carry the team 'cause he doesn't have the skill level to do it. Also pretty obvious after watching tonight's loss. Ericsson's gotta go. Too much of a liability. Too slow, too stupid and too clumsy. Unfortunately, Holland won't be able to get anything for 'em 'cause you get what you pay for. And Kyle Quincey certainly isn't gonna be the answer. The Wings didn't lose to a great hockey team tonight. They simply lost to a good hockey team with a marginal defense and a better than mediocre goaltender. They're no big deal. With or without Toews. The Wings need a goal scorer and a solid defenseman. Almost desperately and it shows. Shots on goal are one thing but scoring chances are another. Changes have to be made and made very soon. Too many marginal players with marginal skills. Unlike the Bowman years.

blown out. loss was due. havent played very good lately with the exception of the blues game.

Sure, because teams not playing well are able to beat the Blues and the Hawks and go on seven-game winning streaks and be #1 in the league.

Hope it was worth it, Stewart.

#2245889 1/14 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by chrisdetroit on 14 January 2012 - 06:02 PM

Well, I gotta say, that was a great game with each team taking turns dominating. Fact is, we are two very closely matched teams, and if we meet in the playoffs it will be a helluva series (and closer than 2009 when the Hawks weren't quite ready).

Datsyuk was pure awesome all over the ice.

James Tiberius Howard is the man.

Even Franzen showed up in OT.

Not as close as the silly standings indicate with all of those loser points. The Hawks have given up 130 goals against. That is more than every team in the West but Columbus and Anaheim.

The Wings have a ROW of 26 compared to Chicago's 22 and we have a game in hand. AND Chicago has played 4 less road games.

Today, they were given a gift goal by Howard and had one go in off of Lidstrom's skate. They really aren't that good of a team.

I think that the Hawks will drop in the standings with that 9 game road trip that they have coming up.

I apparently haven't been paying attention, but what happened to Crosby again? Is he back to crying about his concussions?

#2243474 Speculation on Red Wings

Posted by Learn2LuvIt on 09 January 2012 - 09:55 AM

The only problem I have with this article is using Quitting and Holmstrom in the same sentence. Tiny detail of the piece, but I could think of much better words to use in replacement after being in the league for 16 years. After his career, if that's called quitting....I want to be a quitter too.

#2243374 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by Buppy on 08 January 2012 - 11:54 PM

Cheap shot in my opinion. Doesn't look like Salo is even looking to throw a big hit, much less a dirty one.

This is why discipline has to come from the league. You can't just assume someone is going to throw a dirty hit, and use that assumption to justify a dirty preemptive strike. Vigilante justice never works, and only causes more injuries and injuries to innocent people.

Marchand absolutely should be suspended. If I remember correctly, he has a history of going for the knees too. 2-5 games I'd say, depending on his repeat status.

#2231743 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 December 2011 - 04:48 PM

No reason to play him unless it's on the top 2 lines, with skilled teammates.

With his size, it'll be pointless playing him on the 3rd and 4th lines. You can only have so many undersized forwards trying to be checkers. Helm, Hudler and now possibly Conner.

#2213731 Season-Long Lines Thread

Posted by blueadams on 09 October 2011 - 12:08 PM

Due to popular demand here on the board...I'm starting one official 'blueadams lines thread,' and I'm going to update it throughout the season (as opposed to starting 50+ different lines threads).

Real Lineup:




Blueadams' Dream Lineup:




...Nothing too drastic. 1) I think Flip is better with Pav, and I think Mule is better with Hank, so I switched those two. 2) Brendan Smith is so much better than Kindl and Commie...come on.

I gave you a +1 for making a singular thread for the season. unfortunately, as per your other line threads, i probably won't look at them.

Watching Pavs and Hank work magic like that makes me eternally grateful that they play for my team.

#2213571 Messing with the lines already?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 08 October 2011 - 09:43 PM

So not even 2 periods into the second game of the season and Babcock is already changing up the lines. I realize that the lines didn't look too good in the first period, but how the hell does he expect any chemistry to be built up between players when he doesn't even keep them together for two games?

Jiri Hudler is Pavel Datsyuk minus Jesus.
