#2259695 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

Better now then later, apparently they found chunks of dangle in his knee.

#2259236 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

I don't think so; it's just 1/82 of the schedule.

I agree. You have to bring yourself down to Canucks fan mentality. They have never won anything so they have to find something to treat as their Stanley Cup.

I didnt get to watch a second of the game tonight ( On my way to Vegas) but I saw that Dats was the first star with 0 pts, 0 shots, and +/- 0. It doesn't surprise me but can someone explain to me how good he was out there tonight

#2249696 1/25 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Canadiens 7

Babcock could use this game to send a message. put z, ericsson, and anyone else who has been along for the ride this season on the bench. my guess is he does nothing but stare

Yea because that is exactly how this team has operated during the last 20 years of playoff performances, stanley cups, presidents trophies..etc.... Lets start alienating guys. Good plan. We are 1st overall at the break (some teams have games in hand). Is there some place we would rather be then 1st? I'm confused.

#2248923 Time for my Cleary update.

He's going to score 15-20 goals playing on the 3rd line essentially the whole year and he's worthless? The contract may be a little inflated but what do you expect for production out of a 3rd line guy? Add the fact that he's dependable and a good teammate and I'm pretty sure that he's not getting traded.

I dont know about the rest of you but I'll take composure, team toughness, push back and PP goals all day long over the dumb bull s*** that cost the Blues the game tonight.

We need to get a real fighter on this team.

So we can get stupid instigator penalties that may cost us a goal or a win in a tight race? Good plan. Stuart dropped the gloves..you don't have to win a fight to show that you aren't backing down.

Us healthy, them healthy, 7 game series, I like our chances, we are deeper everywhere and we have the better goalie.

#2243476 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by puckbags on 09 January 2012 - 09:58 AM


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.

Why doesn't Marchand take a page out of Datsyuk's book and just match Salo shoulder for shoulder to gain an advantage? I've seen Dats do it a million times against bigger or smaller guys. It's a clean and effective way of gaining position on a similar play. I don't want hitting out of the game but hits like this are a joke, its contact made below the waist with an attempt to send a guy landing on his head.

This game is over. This is the exact same team that has folded when the going gets tough for how many years now? :thumbdown:

I love it when a guy just blurts out some man love for a guy but has no reasoning to back it up.

#2231837 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Posted by puckbags on 02 December 2011 - 10:47 AM

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.

Huh? If you work your ass of every shift I don't think it really matters how big you are. Being a good checker doesn't mean you have to send guys through the boards every shift. I think Helm and Datsyuk are prime examples of that. Smaller guys who are always positioned well and work their ass off. Helm stripping the puck from a guy is just as effective as him attempting to plaster a guy through the boards.

There is something really satisfying about coming into Colorado on Floppa tribute night and shutting these guys out !

#2213593 Messing with the lines already?

Posted by puckbags on 08 October 2011 - 10:14 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?

Haha, you haven't watched the Babcock coached Wings very much I take it.
