Because it's reasonable to assume that both those guys will play a full 82 games this season, or going forward?  I'm not skewing stats.  I'm going by their totals.  Neither of those two will ever play a full 82 games again.  So why would you go by their full season projections?


Because a per game estimate is a far better predictor of what they'll do in a single game than their recent season totals would suggest. You'd be correct if they were playing the emtire season together, but they're not.


#2547662 Strong Penalty Killing, Lack of Scoring the Story of 2014 So Far

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 06 November 2014 - 04:54 PM

Greetings! We were told you guys had a good debate of last week's Red Wings show so we wanted to tackle some of your comments on air this week: http://wp.me/p2LxGp-V9

Best,
Sports Radio Detroit


I have a few problems with what you say.
And I wouldn't call it being realistic.
My main issue is
Glendenning is not a 3/4 line guy.
He is a fourth line shut down grinder.
There is no wait and see approach on that, that is what he is.
But I did enjoy listening.


#2546457 Strong Penalty Killing, Lack of Scoring the Story of 2014 So Far

Posted by T.Low on 03 November 2014 - 05:03 PM

Boy, these guys don't know what they're talking about. Maybe they should watch some games before they comment
How are Nyquist, tatar, helm, Jurco, abdelkader, sheahan and Glendenning all the same type of player?
How is Nyquist not a scorer?
And Dekeyser is offensive? Haha




Well, atleast they made a good point about getting rid of Tatar for a guy who can come in and get 20-25 goals. I mean he only had 19 in 70 some games as a rookie, and only has 3 in 11 games so far which only projects out to...hmm, whaddya know, 20-25 in 82.


#2545453 10/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 @ Capitals 2

You just knew it would be MSU's Justin Abdelkader who had the big goals after Ovechkin came out in the pre-game and drove a tent stake in the ice.

1. Putting Sheahan at wing when he is more durable and better than helm(IMO) would be a mistake. Helm should be the fourth line center...where he belongs.

2. In the second scenario I understand why you have Tatar and nyquist where they're at. But that's putting a lot of faith into guys who have only done it for a part of one year at the nhl level but we don't have anyone else to play the top 6.

3. Also no jurco makes me wanna cry but I know these are more realistic rosters except you forgot cleary in the first and there's no way Weiss is fourth line. He is either numer 2 center or hurt IMO. He will be given every opputunity(earned or not) because that's how the wings roll. Vets given too many opportunities young guys not enough.

 

1. Helm is our fastest forward and probably the best defensively outside of Datsyuk and Zberg. To not play him at Center would be wasting his talents. From what I understand Sheahan is a natural LW. Helm is also regarded as one of the better 3rd line C's in the entire league. Playing him on the 4th, is again wasting his talents. I wouldn't play Datsyuk on the 2nd just because he was injured last year.

 

2. I'll do anything to keep Abdelkader out of the top 6. But yes, we have no one more else suited for a top 6 role than Nyquist or Tatar.

 

3. Cleary would be scratched in my first. Your bit about Weiss being #2 no matter what simply isn't the case though, and is not at all how the Wings roll. Babs demoted him to 4th line C very quickly last year when he wasn't performing. The same will happen again if he doesn't show up.




#2532910 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

Posted by DickieDunn on 23 July 2014 - 09:05 PM

The South Korean team would get destroyed by the North. Kim Yung Un averages 14 goals a game between his trips to the moon and shooting 18 on an 18 hole golf course.


#2532886 Hockey News: Detroit has the easiest schedule

Posted by Dabura on 23 July 2014 - 12:36 PM

There is one team in the Eastern Conference that is unequivocally better than the Red Wings. That team is the Bruins. Otherwise, it's wide open; the Wings, if healthy and humming, can go toe-to-toe with any EC team in a playoff series. If you disagree, you are wrong.




#2532818 Hockey News: Detroit has the easiest schedule

Posted by Son of a Wing on 22 July 2014 - 02:49 PM

With the exception of Detroit, Tampa Bay and possibly Columbus, every other Eastern team who made the playoffs has taken a serious step back or are in cap hell.

 

Washington looks good on paper but they have always looked pretty good on paper. (aside from their goaltending)

 

Carolina did nothing to improve.  Islander's defence is a joke and who knows with the Leafs.

 

Personally, I like our chances....




#2531568 McCollum signed.

Posted by rick zombo on 11 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

Howard - Monster

 

Mrazek - McCollum

 

Coreau - Patterson

 

That's a pretty decent tandem at every level.




#2531104 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 July 2014 - 03:48 PM

i give up.
 
not following the team this season.

At least one good thing came of this...

I really hope Cleary just goes on ltir all year again. But I know he will be in the top 6 for a while, I didn't want to believe it was possible. I guess I just like to give #fireholland the benefit of the doubt too much.... Well we're done until Alfie is ready to sign

Edit : auto crocodile sucks today

That would be a huge overpayment

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2014 - 01:41 PM

Right now I'm currently locked in a very tight back and forth Battle with the Philadelphia Flyers in the semi-finals of the competition.

 

I need help getting votes to move on to meet the Sharks in the finals.

 

Not only is their GDT a wall of text they have been quite disrespectful towards my work. 

 

You need to have an HFboards account already to vote, but if you have one please follow the link cast your vote

Thanks for any help you can give me.




#2529284 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 02 July 2014 - 02:40 AM

Even without additions this team will improve as the kids gain more experience and confidence. Smith and Dekeyser will be a year older and this should help. Now I dont expect much improvement on the injury front as this team is still terribly soft. On the other hand it cannot get much worse can it? The Red Wings is a playoff team with the current roster. Will be interesting to see if any deal can be made and if Mantha can compete for a roster spot.


#2529266 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by RusDRW on 02 July 2014 - 12:38 AM

I'm not mad at KH not signing one year wonders like Niskanen or aging guys like Boyle. We don't need them in fact and could have regretted these deal. 

 

I'm not mad at KH for signing Quickey. He is top 4.

 

I'm mad at filling the roster with Kindls and Lashoffs and not being able to trade them for something meaningful. Play our youngsters on the D, Sproul, Oulette, Backman, Marchenko.




#2527082 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by frankgrimes on 29 June 2014 - 09:51 PM

we can afford both. Erhoff got bought out, so he can come fairly cheap. $3M maybe. Niskanen $6m maybe. Trade Kindl and give that $2.4M to Diesel. You still got $5m for Sheahan and Tatar. Once you dump Andersson and give Sheahan and Tats about $2.5M together. You have over $3M for Iginla or just hold on to the $3M for space.


This is the real NHL not NHL x GM mode.
