Green would help on the pp if only Blash puts him out on the first unit, keep putting Kronwall out there aint helping and
by the time Green gets out on a pp theres usually only 25 or so seconds left.
6 milly a year for a guy who has made a career out of being an offensive d man. I think it's time to get him on the first unit. To be honest I would go back to 3 forwards and 2 d on the PP. Z - D - Abby - Green - Kronwall and then whatever other 5 guys you want to put on the second unit. Gus, Tatar, Larkin, Richards etc....
....ANOTHER blown lead with Howard in goal? Hmmmm.....
honestly, I think its getting to the point where Holland needs to find that "piece" that puts us over the top. Mrazek IS our goalie, Smth, E and K are ALL expendable. Helm is playing better, his worth has increased some. It's time to make some calls.
The fact you are questioning the goaltending in this game would leave me to believe you didn't watch the game? This isn't even a game after 40 minutes if Howard didn't counter our weak effort with good saves. Now don't get me wrong he looked like me dancing at my xmas party on the OT winner but he was hardly the reason for the loss.
Watch it with that. Don't be accusing people on being on drugs there guy.
Nobody is questioning Nyquist's OT contributions. So quit makin stuff again. Again.
You may want to learn how to take a joke. Is this really what the world has come to? I'm pretty sure he wasn't saying that anyone for certain has a drug problem. It's called a figure of speech.
Sound like a 12 year old during interviews - check
Make idiotic plays - check
Get the "dumbest red wing" title - check
Hit the captain on open ice during game - check
Get involved in a team practice fight (probably the first time since Primeau/Probert fight) - check
Way to keep it classy in the Red Wing's organization guys.
Slight over reaction perhaps? One of the classiest organizations in sports......ever. It's a little dust up, who cares. 10 years ago we wouldn't have even heard about this. These guys spend a lot of time together, stuff like this is bound to happen.
@HeleneStJames: Blashill planning on playing Andreas Athanasiou Friday. @AnsarKhanMLive: Blashill said Datsyuk playing tomorrow on line with Zetterberg and Abdelkader.
For those who have been fans since the early 90's this is the longest personal drought without a cup. 7 years now...not sure if I should be disappointed or if I sound like a spoiled s*** head who's seen his team win 4 cups lol.
Z isn't going anywhere but his role needs to be redefined, he's turning into a top 6/9 guy who can kill penalties, play on the pp and win some faceoffs. Reminds me so much of Yzerman in his last few years. Still can help but need to be realistic about it.
Good effort, we are just a little thin up front, Cole and Franzen would've helped that alot. Huge credit to Marchenko and Kindl tonight, those two looked great. Kindl is an NHL caliber defenceman and if's he not going to be playing for us he needs to be moved for something. It pains me to say it but Z is turning into Stevie late in his career. Looks sore everytime he takes a stride. We have lots to build on here and some movable assets.
24 years of being a Wings fan and this ranks really high on the anger meter. Big E needs to have a turn in the rotation and sit on the bench for a game or two. Best of 3 and we've more than proven we can beat these guys. Game on !!
It's like amateur hour around here. Almost every season for the last 23 this team goes into a funk like this. Only one thing matters. Make the playoffs. Be healthy, Get hot and have a chance at the cup. I don't give a flying f if we finish 8th.
I don't understand this year's deadline strategy. Not at all. I don't hate it, but I don't get it.
What is there to get? We picked up 2 legit veteran players and gave up prospects who are clearly not even close to playing in the NHL. We gave up a couple of picks which we can afford to do considering our prospect pool is pretty damn deep. It's all about what you can afford to give up and what you need. We needed another right handed d man and got one.
