#2454903 Datsyuk in shootouts

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 17 November 2013 - 12:59 PM

 

why would it be "not cool" to joke about a former wing?

 

I refuse to acknowledge Jason Williams was ever a Red Wing.  Wait, who is Jason Williams?  The guy who had the nickname "White Chocolate" for the Sacramento Kings?

is jason Williams available?

 

You deserve a junk punch for that.  Even if it is a joke.  Not cool dude. 


I guess Babs won't let Tatar take a shootout shot because he's not defensibly responsible?

esteef

 

For some reason I remember that Tatar's shootout stats in the AHL weren't very good but it wouldn't surprise me if I'm thinking of someone else.  And they do practice the shootout every now and again to determine who should go in game situations so maybe Tatar hasn't been very good at that in practice either.  I'm never afraid to harp on Babs and Kenny for their misuse of Tatar but not in this situation. 




#2454899 What would you do?...

I know this is of no use to us now, or even this season. but jurcos building some chemistry with nyquist.
Which could be an awesome thing in the long haul.

 

Very true.  Generally speaking though, Nyquist is one of those players with which it isn't hard to develop chemistry if you're his linemate.  He's willing to adjust himself as humanly possible so that everybody can make a good impact.  When he plays with lesser skilled players, he knows he'll have to control the puck a lot.  When he plays with guys like Jurco he knows he can cycle and move around more.  At the college and AHL level he's shown to be very aware of the strengths of his linemates.

It's official, Datsyuk has become an idiot from playing with Bertuzzi so much.  

 

It's more like Quincey's fault.

This is for all the Jimmy Howard fans out there ha ha Ha ha ha

Anybody here remember when Mickey said Howie is for sure a Top-5 goalie?

What would I do...??? Hmmmm....

"There is no store"... There is no store??? No? Store?? Really? Ever heard of the GRAND RAPIDS GRIFFINS!??? They've got forwards, they've got d-men and they have goalies, they even have coaches! You want overripe prospects? They've got 'em! You want offensive d-men? They have those too!

What would I do..

 

Just out of innocent curiosity what kind of alcohol concoction did you have tonight?  I might want to try something after tonight's mess.

Babs, stop fooling yourself.  These guys need to go for the kill and they don't.

 

No confidence.  At all. 




#2453345 An honest question about Nyquist

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 12 November 2013 - 10:38 PM

I will drive Nyquist myself for free if they make room for him. 

 

"No chance."

 

Smh...

 

I swear we should all pitch Kenny and whomever belongs to the "We like our depth" crew for their own hoarding reality TV show.  It should come on right after Wingspan.

For some reason I want to say Datsyuk's shootout moves are kind of like Verlander's pitches in that it's just a matter of execution.  I suppose the issue at that point is that Pav never really knows what he wants to do until he's about 5 feet away from the crease.

Speaking of the womens hockey, Amanda Kessel is crazy good at hockey and crazy cute.  Lethal combination. 




#2453151 Speculation regarding Franzen's ailment

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 12 November 2013 - 09:07 PM

After watching Franzen's first game back against the Jets, I think it's safe to say we'll never see the old Mule again.

 

Sure looks like an old mule.

#2452628 An honest question about Nyquist

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 10 November 2013 - 12:00 PM

Yes the Wings deserve to lose the more they continue to bury him in the minors... Wait, what was the question?
