I never said you thought he was a future superstar. And I never said Hudler sucks for health reasons. Please don't put words in mouth. Thank you.


Snap.


#2184133 Wings - Flyers Trade Partners?

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 09 June 2011 - 02:22 PM

You may be right on this. However, and I'll probably get blasted for this, one of the VERY FEW criticisms that I have of Babcock is that he plays with the line combinations constantly. To the point that guys are playing with different pairings every few nights. In a game where chemistry and timing matters as much as hockey, it seems to really bog some guys down. I don't know if that's the reason they haven't been as good together, but I don't really care for it, and certainly you don't see other teams tops lines doing it (at least not nearly as often).


Yeah but Babs has always done that ever since he's coached here and the Euro Twins were fine from 06-08 and arguably parts of 09.

So what's changed? Only Pav and Z themselves in ways perhaps including but not limited to:

1. I feel like Zetterberg is trying to rely more on his smarts and intelligence to get him through games, especially the regular season, and less and less of the tenacity and determination that he showed as a young up and coming player. He's getting a little older, doesn't want to be injured and thus has to really pace himself if he wants to battle for a cup. He'll step up his energy if he really has to like when Datsyuk got injured this past year but if the Wings got all their horses then he's just preparing himself for the playoffs. And I don't want to come off as criticizing him at all. Perhaps that's the best way for him to go about his business, everything considered.

2. Datsyuk has become much more dominant everywhere on the ice. The guy just seems to be everywhere taking care of everything and we all want to see him like that. He's just gotten so much better.

With these sorts of factors in play I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that they don't play as well together. Perhaps they've just simply grown to the point where they don't instinctively rely on each other as much. And that's perfectly fine.


#2184097 Thoughts on Sami Salo?

This is why the little punk gets negged all the time. He asks a question then is a prick to you when you don't agree with him.

#2184092 Wings - Flyers Trade Partners?

Does anybody know if he can play the wing as well? I'm curious what kind of options he would give us as far as line combos?


Blueadams thread coming.

Not gonna lie, that Lucic shot to the back of Burrows head was kind of funny. BOOM!


#2183059 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Any chance Burrows and Lapierre skate into each other and destroy each other's ACLs? That'd be greeeeeat.


#2183031 Thoughts on Joni Pitkanen

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 06 June 2011 - 05:58 PM

Why did you post such a broken "description" of Pitkanen?


It's blueadams, man. Shoot first, ask questions later.


#2182486 How Much Is Hudler Worth?

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 04 June 2011 - 12:37 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, David Letterman presents the top ten things worth more useful than Jiri Hudler:

Number 10... A bag of pucks.
Number 9... A couple rolls of pink tape.
Number 8... A set of Christian brand hockey sticks.
Number 7... A pair of Daoust skates. Yeah. Daoust skates.
Number 6... Any hockey equipment made by Cooper.
Number 5... A sheet of NHL official team logo pogs--Hellooo!
Number 4... World Champion Icehockey for the Commodore 64.
Number 3... A pre-owned boxed set of the Mighty Ducks movies.
Number 2... A 20% off coupon at the HenrikZetterberg.com store. Hey-yo!
And the number 1 thing that's worth more useful than Jiri Hudler... Link Gaetz's rookie card!!!

Baaaa da da da da daaa da da da...

:P

Any idea why he's been on 4 different teams in 5 years?


#2181315 I think we're going to win it all next season

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 31 May 2011 - 02:14 PM

I guess it kind of felt like a while since we had a blueadams lines thread. Nice little relapse I guess.

I wonder how often this will happen to McCrimmon.

This series makes me think, "God I can't wait for the draft."


#2180570 Draft Talk
