I might be skipping this series...

#2294877 WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

Babcock's post-game interview called attention to the lack of offensive depth. Being outspoken about it, I bet that Holland addresses it. We need to keep Franzen, he's still good for 25 goals a season. But due to his streakiness we can no longer RELY on him to get us out of a hole. Ergo, sign another big name and relegate Franzen to awesome secondary scoring.

Also it's clear we need someone who goes to the net, carrying the puck, rather than dropping it back to a trailer who loses it to the other team.

Thank you Lids.

If this is your last game in a Wings jersey, thank you for making literally 2/3rds of my life enjoyable from October to May almost every single year. An epitome of physical and mental clarity and consistency. If you do go, you will be greatly missed on the ice and in the locker room.


#2292084 WCQF Game Four GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 1

This was a really tough loss. I thought the Wings played very well, there were a few moments in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Wings have got to start scoring on there chances, that is the difference in this series. Still don't know on the 2nd goal why there were 3 guys chasing 1 guy it's happening way too often. And how did the ref miss a clear penalty shot for us, he was looking right at it in the crease, there is no excuses on that play what so ever. I will never count the Wings out and will be a Wings fan till I die. GO WINGS :thumbup:

Don't get mad or you're not a "true" fan? f*** off!


Big difference between mad, like I am, and quitting.

#2280192 For once I agree with Don Cherry

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 08 April 2012 - 10:19 AM

Yea great points by Cherry. If the Wings don't make it to the finals, I'd like to see Pittsburgh and Vancouver play in the finals. Canada will see that their precious Crosby isn't a saint. Canadians will understand what Americans, and fans of American teams, are saying about him.

Haha WTF? You think because he doesnt play Canadian teams that often we don't hear about him or see him play? Trust me, the Pens don't need to be playing the Canucks for Sid to get exposure here in Canada. I hear what Americans, and fans of American teams are saying about him all the time and you all sound like babies bitching and complaining about a guy who dominates the league. Everybody on both sides of this argument needs to get over this. Yes, he ******* and complains to the refs - but the majority of hockey players do. We are spoiled in Detroit because we have a mature, experienced team, so we get really poopy when we see anyone whining. Crosby's antics are just amplified because everybody, even you haters LOVE to hear about him.

The fact that you guys are all agreeing with some of the biggest bone heads in hockey should tell you something. All Milbury has ever done is ruin the New York Islanders, hit some fan with his shoe, and push around some kid at a minor hockey game. Cherry? The guy is absolutely insane. And Torts? Talk about a guy who needs to STFU and just coach. Take some hints from Babcock on how to be a professional. Talk about a whiner.

And for the record, if the Pens and Nucks play in the final, everyone outside BC will be cheering for Pittsburgh. Vancouver is one of the most hated teams in Canada.

It's actually Ken Holland's fault for the defensive miscues and horrifying goaltending.

#2273978 Brendan Smith sent back to Grand Rapids

Posted by Echolalia on 25 March 2012 - 10:11 PM

Well this sucks but I knew it was coming. To bad Kenny is deciding to make our defense weaker since Smith is far better than Ericsson and Kindl at both end of the rink.

They are just both so terrible and painful to watch.

Smith is better offensively than both Ericsson and Kindl, but he is most definitely NOT better defensively than either player, or anyone else on that side of the bench. The kid has a lot of talent and he sees the ice phenomenally, but he's also underestimated the speed of oncoming forwards and has been beaten plenty of times in his short stint up. He has a lot to learn and a lot to get accustom to before he is equal defensively to either Kindl or Ericsson. I'm not saying he doesn't have that potential, but if we need to preserve a one goal lead late in the third, I'm sending any defenseman out there before Smith. In two years that will likely change. But not today.

#2270517 Call the team out

Posted by wings_fanatic on 15 March 2012 - 08:35 AM

I strongly disagree with your assessment. They were the best team in the league pretty much until Pasha and Nick got hurt. Losing Pasha caused an already lazy Franzen to look about 10 times worse. We lost that entire line that provided much of our offence and offence zone time. Because of that Hank and Fil have become our top line and thus the other teams have been able to focus solely on them. Despite that, they have still been outstanding, but they simply have no support without Pasha.

Bert did not look very good last night but that was expected because his timing was off- - he even alluded to that before the game. Franzen is the one player, along with Cleary, that has been pissing me off all year... I really wish we would have kept Hossa. Nonethless, this team has been amongst the best in the league for the majority of the season when healthy. When we get pasha back, we will have much more offence and an ability to dominate the puck possession game and he will help our powerplay with gaining the zone, faceoffs, moving the puck and getting pucks to net. When we get Nick back it will provide much more stability to the point on the powerplay and an effortless but amazing defence game.

If you honestly think this team is bad then you do not know hockey. This is a successful team and when they get their 2 big boys back they will dominate the rest of the season. I have no doubt in my mind.

All I know is finishing 4th in the Conference will not get us a Cup!

#2267999 The Blues are in the driver's seat

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 March 2012 - 09:03 AM

Why are people afraid of playing Nashville in the first round? If we can't beat them, then who are we kidding about a possible Cup run?

I'd rather play them over Chicago or San Jose.

#2266671 3/4 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by Guest on 04 March 2012 - 07:17 PM

can't wait for bertuzzi, hudler, and cleary to be totally ineffective in the playoffs

get ready for bertuzzi one-handing the puck around the net and then giving it away

but wait, here's hudler in the slot with a prime scoring opportunity and he decides to pass it to someone on the boards instead

we're not done yet, cause dan cleary is going to skate the puck just into the attacking zone and then fall down when any player brushes against him on the boards.

why did they not get a shooter again? this team needs someone else that can put the puck in the net.

thank GOD we saved all that cap space, right?

When you make comments about having lots of cap space, one can put two and two together. Comments like the above insinuate more than you realize.

You didn't come out and directly say it, but your constant criticism is not only unwarranted, its annoying.

so i never said it...thanks.

glad we cleared that up.
