haha...  fake puck

 

It's another one of Datsyuk's crazy moves.  It's called the "fakey".  He intentionally breaks the end of his stick off, "accidentally" turns the "puck" over to the opponent and then skates away with the real puck handled cleanly by the heel of his stick.  It's all part of his plan.

I think our third line is my all time favorite line.  A tale of two Daniels: Two men, one number, no problem!

 

 

Old guys, owning the big bad Bruins so hard right now.

Anybody else notice that the Wings have played pretty tough (yet clean) the last two games.   Maybe I'm just noticing it more, but Cleary crunched somebody on the boards last game, Abby worked over Boychuk at the blueline today, and I've seen Alfie and Bert going hard into the boards today.

 

Edit:  Weiss for Franzen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Suck it haterz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots of ambivalence about Bertuzzi on the boards these days.  Prior to tonight's game, half of LGW wanted him off the team.  Anybody willing to eat crow?

Anybody else willing to admit that Dan Cleary has had a hell of a game tonight?

Calling it, Bertuzzi with another PP goal...and eventually the hat trick.

Get real Mickey.

 

Glendering will never be what Brent Gilchrist was.  Never.  

 

Perpetually injured?




#2443499 Nyquist taking things in stride, with class

Posted by kipwinger on 12 October 2013 - 08:52 AM

 

15 points in 48 games compared to Goose's 6 points in 22 games is not way more. The only place he was really out produced was the playoffs, but again, ice time

 

Wait, are we using Cleary's clutch playoff performances against him now?  Do the playoffs not count?  Also I fail to see your point about ice time.  Everybody is supposed to produce more with more ice time, if Cleary didn't then I'd say he's not worth his money.  Given more ice time, he produces more.  That's what he's supposed to do. 

 

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that Cleary is as skilled as Nyquist, he's not.  But he produces consistently, and when paired with quality linemates he produces pretty well.  He's definitely worth his money.  However, I do have a problem with those that think Nyquist is somehow entitled to a top six spot based on his skill alone.  He has by no means shown (so far) that he's capable of producing even at Hudler or Filppula levels given third line minutes, and yet many are clamoring for him to get promoted to the top six.

Cleary gets way more ice time than Goose and has also played with Dats and Z.  Apples and oranges...


Cleary needs to go too.  He sucks.  I don't know if I mentioned it in any threads today, but I'd like to go on record stating that Cleary sucks.  A Wings roster without him may bring tears of joy.

 

You're right, and he produces way more than Nyquist for slightly more money, so I don't see what you're getting at?

Howard looks injured. Very slow.

 

We need an elite, top-pairing puck-mover. I think it's pretty clear the D overachieved last season.

 

You mean like two time all star Keith Yandle?  The man who I've been pining for for two years, and who most LGWers say "isn't very good defensively", yet who (when compared to our d-core) looks like a superstar? 

 

Yeah I don't know where we'd find a guy like that.




#2442988 Tootoo Cleared to Play

Posted by kipwinger on 10 October 2013 - 01:42 PM

Well according to the Free Press Babcock thinks the Wings need to play "heavier"...whatever that means.  So we can expect to have Tootoo in the lineup, since he's an actual fourth liner and "heavy" is the name of his game right?  Oh wait...

 

 

Heavy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#2442867 Stuart faces hearing for hit to head

Posted by kipwinger on 09 October 2013 - 04:43 PM

How is that hit to Nash's head any worse than this hit Nash put on Kopecky and didn't get a suspension? 

 




#2442672 Good read. Good to know....

" The third line of Joakim Anderson centering Daniel Cleary and Todd Bertuzzi has yet to score a point this season and is a combined - 8"

only if are third line was Nyquist Andersson Tatar

One can dream...

 

I think you'll see it before long.  Babs had no problem playing the kids on that line last season.  I think right now they're trying to showcase certain players for potential trades, and also trying to figure out which guys they want to keep.  I realistically imagine that the kids will form the third line, and some combination of Cleary, Emmerton, Miller, and Bertuzzi will make up the fourth until Helm is healthy.  It's coming, but we've all got to be patient.  A few more stinkers like last game will undoubtedly speed up the process as well.
