#2586349 3/28 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by number9 on Yesterday, 08:01 PM

face it jimmy is just not good. It wasn't him who got them to where they were, it was the over achieving defense. He proved that by s***ting out the shootouts. Now when the D started playing bad, jimmy's true talent showed.

 

Coming from the guy who calls Kronwall Pisswall :ok:

He had a few f***ups in October to continue his f***ups from last season.


It doesn't matter if you're biased if what you say is true...

 

Except bias literally distorts the truth

After further extensive research I've been able to identify the primary factor to the Wings lackluster play.....No goons in the line up.

 

EDIT - allow me explain...We could use a guy on the bench to punch a fellow Wing teammate for playing like crap...You cough up the puck at the blue line POW! a punch in the face.

 

You don't back check, and the winger you were assigned to cover scores a goal BAM! a knuckle sandwich...You get what I'm sayin :crazy:




#2585781 Petr Mrazek is the #1

Posted by rick zombo on 26 March 2015 - 10:22 PM

If Mrazek gets us into the playoffs, there's no way Howard will start.  Even Babcock isn't that stupid.  You don't punish a young goalie who carries you into the playoffs by benching him once the playoffs begin.  Bad for morale.  
 
This could be the last (hopefully) that we've seen of Howard as the number one goalie.

He punished Kindl for scoring a goal and making a beautiful breakaway pass on Abdlekader's goal last game but doesn't punish Ericsson for being useless. He punishes Weiss for turning the puck over vs Boston but refuses to punish Nyquist, who turned the puck over at least six time tonight. I say he has the potential to be "that stupid".

Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be brief

 

You can't hold an entire team responsible for the play of a few slumping individuals. For if you do, shouldn't we blame the entire team system? And if the whole team system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our hockey institutions in general? I put it to you LGW *points* isn't this an indictment of our entire sports society? Well, say what you want about the Red Wings, but I'm not going to sit here and listen to you bad mouth pro sports!

 

Gentlemen

I'm expecting good things from James Tiberius Howard tonight. We're good.


Spoke too soon


#2585148 Connor McDavid

Posted by number9 on 25 March 2015 - 06:34 PM

Not me. We aren't getting either of them so what do I care if they're the next Crosby or the next Daigle? f*** Connor Mcdavid!

 

No no no Kip, McDaniel WILL be the next generational talent. Cause ya kno, hype and stuff.




#2585091 Cole to miss next 3 games

Posted by puckloo39 on 25 March 2015 - 12:14 PM

Why not play Cleary?  He might really really want to win and play well.




#2585006 3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by number9 on 24 March 2015 - 09:54 PM

Maybe people like to oh I don't know, Watch The Game while it's on?? Is that unreasonable? People watch, then post their comments after?

 

s***, do you get mad at people for not giving their opinion every five minutes of a movie instead of just watching it and then discussing it after it is done?

 

There isn't some conspiracy here where people just show up to hate on the loss, they just want to discuss it with other people when it's over.

 

True, but pay attention to what users show magically show up after losses but are never here for wins. And it doesn't seem to go vice versa.


Sooooo on the plus side, Kindl looked good eh?

 

Better than Howard. What a loser he is.

That's cool, I don't wish we had him or someone like him. I think he's an ass. If you want someone physical, you realize we just traded for Cole right? It sounds like what you actually want is some big dude who's willing to punch smaller dudes.

 

How often does Doan punch smaller dudes?  He's like 40.  Cole is not the same type of player.  He goes to the net and plays hard, but he's not a punishing hitter and doesn't play with Doan's passion.  Few guys do.

I wish I could neg you into oblivion. I get he doesn't take chances on his big kronwalls anymore, but Pisswall? Really? This is low even for you

#2584191 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by mvanpop on 23 March 2015 - 10:29 AM

 
I find it odd that you're lamenting the job the GM has done in a year where we've younger, bigger, more skilled, and healthier than we've been in years.  And in the same year where he went out, got the coach exactly what he wanted at the trade deadline, and those two players are playing better than anybody on the team (other than Abby). 
 
What else do you want Holland to do?  Other than coach and/or play the actual games himself, I think he's done a pretty good job. 

He should've done all that earlier, cheaper and with better players!


#2583797 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by DickieDunn on 22 March 2015 - 08:54 AM

I don't expect him to win ever single year, but you guys are downplaying some of the really great teams he had and lost with. His teams were not mediocre in 2005 or 2009. I get irritated when people act like he's had nothing to work with. He's had good, to great teams since joining the wings. He's got one cup. He's not such a super duper coach that its anathema to even consider life after Babcock.


Bowman had great teams in 95 96 99 00 and 01 and didn't win. He used grinders with Hall of Fame centers and had Fedorov on defense for awhile. He must suck too


#2583698 3/20 GDT : Red Wings 1 Tampa Bay Lightning 3

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 March 2015 - 01:47 PM

Blame it on injuries .. Just like last year. When this team is fully healthy which we were for what first 50-60 games we were competing for first. Need everyone at 100% and team is night and day every night.

 

Bullcrap.  We're like middle of the pack in man games lost.
