People forget that babcock coached the hell out of the kids the last two years with all the injuries and we made it to the playoffs both years. I truly believe that if someone else was coaching the Wings, one of those two years we would have missed the playoffs. A great coach adapts to the talent he has. People think his methods haven't changed but I guarantee they are different this year then they were in 2008-2009 when he could coach on auto-pilot.

He is the best coaching option out there. With any other coach the Wings take a step back. Go get him Kenny!

Can we all stop with the political discussion.  I know that nobody means any harm, but this isn't really the place for it.

Killorn basically holding Quincey the whole play, then takes him down to ground... not a hook?, not interference?

Not holding? Yup, disgusting

Don't get salty, if you want I can find the non-call that did lead to a goal.

you think I'm siding with the nhl lmao they are corrupt as f***, but why complain about a call that didn't affect us?

I like the way we're playing, but the only thing that matters in this sport is goals.  


Our stars need to score here.

#2603327 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 April 2015 - 11:47 AM

Honest question - since the head WAS the initial point of contact, was anybody here expecting a game misconduct? I was shocked when there wasn't even a penalty on the ice. I know that this hit looks like every other Kronner hit and the contact to the head was because the player's head was down, but if you just looked at this hit independently and switched the player's jerseys...wouldn't you want a Tampa Bay player at least penalized for the same hit? I'm not saying it's dirty...just not the cleanest hit I've ever seen.


It was a bad hit and would've been much better for the Wings had Kronwall been ejected in a game they were already losing. 


Had he gotten a major and a misconduct I think there's a good chance he only gets fined, if anything.

This is part of the reason why I went elsewhere.  This place really has turned into Mos Eisley Spaceport of Wings fans.  

I enjoy the cantina atmosphere.

Man, we are getting eaten up in the 3rd lately. Other teams bring it and we look like we are just PRAYING something bounces our way.

#2574331 2/23 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Ducks 4 (SO)

Posted by kipwinger on 24 February 2015 - 10:30 AM

Up late watching the shootout then had to be up early. Ugh.


Lots to like last night and some things to dislike. A point on the road against a top western team doesn't suck but the fact we could be looking at one point either keeping us from Montreal or Tampa in the first round or missing home ice against each look no further than last night for it. 


I will say this, more and more I'm noticing Brendan Smith excelling at 4 x 4 situations. He really puts pressure on the forward defending him. I like that. I'd get him out there more in those spots. I have much respect for Jakob Silfverberg of Anaheim the way he approaches shootouts. He has a plan. Only three shots does he practice, top corner, like last night, low corner and five hole. No slapshots, no moves, no 5 minute attempts, from the same spot every time and he knows which one he's using before he skates at the puck. One wonders if certain Wings could learn from such a zen approach.


Last night was a hard miles game, tonight will be tough.


I'm not ready to anoint Silfverberg some sort of shootout wunderkind just yet.  Even your best shootout performers hover around 50% over their careers.  He's currently shooting at 69%.  Eventually he'll regress back to the mean.  A few years ago it was Wojtek Wolski who couldn't miss in the shootout. 


There's a principle in physics, I don't remember the name, which states that even when you know the probability of something happening, you don't know WHEN each instance will take place.  So, even if you know that good shootout performers only shoot about 50%, you don't know whether all the misses will come at the beginning, middle, end, of their careers or whether they'll be evenly dispersed. 


Flip a coin a hundred times and you might start out getting 7 heads and 3 tails, but you'd be wrong to assume that the likelihood of flipping heads is 70%.  And you can be sure that it will even out later.

When's the last time the wings had goalie interference overlooked?

They didn't call anything for 40 minutes and now we are clamping down on everything? Puzzling standard in the third.
