Smith had a decent game last night. Quincey has had three good games in a row. The common denominator: they weren't paired. I hope that Babcock will take note.

Not too surprising he'll experience stuff like this while trying to return, as long as it's not his back acting up it's not the end of the world. 

#2429946 kronner a #1?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 July 2013 - 09:34 PM

By the definition that some have here of what constitutes a #1 defenseman, there are substantially less #1 defensemen than there are teams in the NHL.


To me, there's more elite centers or goalies in the league than there are defensemen.    


Technically, every team has a number one defenseman in terms of his standing on the team, but very few of them are elite.  



So Kronwall is our number one, but he's not an elite defenseman.  

#2412285 WCSF Game 6 GDT- Blackhawks 4 @ Red Wings 3, - (Series tied 3-3)

Interesting nugget from John Niyo if you're one of those who believes in numbers:


So history suggests they've still got this one locked up, even after Saturday night's clunker in Chicago. In fact, in those 11 previous 3-1 scenarios, the Wings were under .500 (5-6) in Game 5, with all sorts of forgettable flops — a 6-0 shutout loss to Patrick Roy in Colorado in 1997, Jamie Langenbrunner's 70-foot OT softie on Chris Osgood in '98, even the triple-OT loss to Pittsburgh in the '08 Cup Finals. But they were 6-0 in the Game 6s that followed, never allowing a series to get to a winner-take-all seventh game.

Just don't give Chicago free time outs like at the end of game 3.

#2406545 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by Guest on 18 May 2013 - 12:58 PM

First off, you're being a tad impatient with a guy who is in his rookie season.


Second, the Wings have nothing to gain by trading him for peanuts, and much to gain if he gets better---as rookies often do.


Third, you haven't a clue if he's a dime-a-dozen player. If he's the same way in three years, then I'll concede the point to you. As things stand, he's a rookie.

How do I upload the image directly, so I don't have to upload it to an image hosting website first? The image lost quite a bit of quality.

#2390134 Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2013 - 10:33 AM

It depends on how serious your relationship is.   Have you met her parents? 


I'm one of those old fuddy-duddys who think that octi should be reserved for the playoffs, but since this is as close as Dallas will get this year, it's kind of you to give them at least a taste of the playoff experience.


If you're really nervous about getting caught- wear a Stars jersey (get a cheap one at a thrift store) over a Wings t-shirt.  If the jersey is white and the t-shirt red, you might need a white t-shirt over the red one to camo the red.  Then once you get inside, give the Stars jersey to an underprivileged child (one whose parents haven't raised them as a Wings fan), ditch the white t-shirt (they're cheap at thrift stores) and wander about proudly wearing the Wings colours.


Or spend the game in a Stars jersey and when security asks who threw the octo, just shrug and ask them to explain icing.
