#2298311 Is Rinne Getting Exposed?

Posted by 55fan on 30 April 2012 - 05:02 PM

Not to say that he's bad or anything like that, because he's a very good goalie, but we made him look better than he is.

He would give up rebound after rebound and the Wings would all stand there and think, "Hey. There's the puck. It would have been really cool if someone would have been standing there to take another shot. Is someone going to get that? No? Oh, we're on defense now? Ok, I'll just skate to the other end. Unless my shift is over..."

Same thing happened in 2010 when the Sharks beat the Wings and then bowed out in the Conference Finals in 4 straight games against the Hawks.


didn't they lose last year to Vancouver in 4 games as well after beating us?

We can call it "detroit syndrome" :)

Nashville looks flat and tired..almost seems like they treated us as their Stanley Cup.


#2298574 Predators bench Radulov and A. Kostitsyn for Game 3 of WCSF

Hey, I remember how Scotty used to give a doorman or someone a hockey stick in the hotel lobby and that person would ask a player to sign the stick and that's how Scotty found out who violated the curfew.

But it's ok to ram an opposing player's face into the glass.


#2297542 Johan Franzen wants to 'have more fun'

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 27 April 2012 - 10:36 AM

Franzen managing to say the absolute wrong thing for how he's viewed here.

Winning is fun. Scoring goals is fun. Try working harder every day, every game, every shift, and you'll probably win more games and score more goals and have more fun.

Maybe he can have more fun on another team.

Deflection + Excuse!

At least when Hoss wasn't scoring he still gave his all and played great defensively. If Mule isn't scoring he is a waste of quality ice time. If he wants to have more fun show him clips of past Wings teams winning the Cup!

I just want him to show up and score some goals, for the impressive contract.


#2297299 Report: Luongo officially requests trade out of Vancouver

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 April 2012 - 03:11 PM

Who has another bad contract on their team that would need a good (not great) goalie?

Detroit...


#2297319 Where does Bertuzzi fit?

Posted by Sycsa on 26 April 2012 - 04:09 PM

^This

Also, he'll continue to win us lots of extra points in shootouts.


#2297318 Where does Bertuzzi fit?

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 26 April 2012 - 03:59 PM

Bertuzzi WILL be on the third line, while filling in the top 6 when injuries or slow production occurs. He will also assume Holmstrom duties in front of the net on the powerplay from time to time.

And he is a solid guy to have in the bottom 6 with some specialties that do help the squad. He is not by any means a slug out there.. he skates well enough and won't be pushed around. I'm happy to have him as a 3rd liner who can put up 35-50 pts.


#2296664 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

Posted by 55fan on 24 April 2012 - 12:18 PM

I believe that Trotz was serious. Everything he has said previously indicates to me that he looks up to Lidstrom as much as his lack of a neck allows.


#2296663 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

Posted by edicius on 24 April 2012 - 12:15 PM

From the DRW official Twitter feed:

Lidstrom confirmed that Barry Trotz said 'please don't retire' while in the handshake line following the NSH series.



Although, I suppose you could take that one of two ways:

  • Trotz believes Lids deserves a better sendoff than a 5-game first round loss
  • Trotz secretly thinks Lidstrom is declining fast and would be a detriment to the Wings and therefore, an asset to the Preds
I've always liked Trotz, so I'd like to think it's the former.
