#2452289 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by dirtydangles on 09 November 2013 - 04:26 PM

Wings win 3-2, Filppula hat trick.

so fil scores at least one on his own net?

So far this season? I'm going to go with a healthy Bert.

ESPN surely knows their hockey! :lol:

Garth Snow should have read the fine print. He traded for Tm Thomas, the TD Bank Garden's quiet, but friendly janitor.

#2347781 Helm: "Minor Setback", still out indefinitely, *merged*

Posted by HelmFan on 27 January 2013 - 09:12 PM

Insert the standard "small fast forward problem" here. I like Helm, but guys can't help if they are always in the training room. Due to his size and style of play, he might be a guy that misses 30% of the games every year. Misses or is playing hurt....


Stats show this isn't true:  last 4 years played.  75 out of 82

                                                                           82 out of 82

                                                                           68 out of 82

                                                                              1out of 5


add them up and you get 226 games played out of 251. so he's missed 10% of the games the last 3 years and 5 games.


For comparison: Datysuk 18%, Zetterberg 6%, Filppula 17%,Franzen 28%,Cleary 17%, Bertuzzi 7%



I think this year, he got caught out of shape and thinking there wouldn't be a season and hurt his back trying to hard to get back in the swing of things.  It didn't have anything to do with him being an undersize grinder.

Hudler resigns? He's not in your lineup.

#2289303 Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

Yeah but guess what...they don't! They are a little more classy and tend not to use winning something in the past as a CURRENT reference to their team.

The bad thing is the majority of Red Wings fans who throw that stat out there have not been alive for more than the most recent 4, yet live off the others like they were in some guys testicles wearing a Gordie Howe jersey.

I just find it silly to resort (when losing a battle of wits) to bringing up things that happened 20+ years prior to my birth.

is that around the time your Dad starting courting his cousin?

It's cute to see the Red Wings fans getting all excited about this toy tantrum Bertuzzi threw.

I mean that's really all you have to smile about seeing as you're down 2-1, very possibly 3-1 after tomorrow night before heading back to "CAPITOL OF HICKVILLE" ... lol Capitol...and we're uneducated?

Continue being immature like your players and enjoy the off season :D

Dave Strader (who many of us remember well) is covering the series for NBCSports. He reports that after the morning skate today the Preds were using the ping pong tables outside the dressing rooms to relax. Big Bert stepped out, told them that if they wanted to play ping-pong, they'd have to bring their own table; then he folded the table up and wheeled it into the Wings room. CLASSIC!

#2284043 Justin Abdelkader

Posted by Gnredwing on 13 April 2012 - 01:05 AM

Does anyone else think Abdelkader should be out of the lineup, he is useless, all he does is get his ass kicked when he fights and doesn't do anything offensively. He makes me sick, why he is still in the lineup is beyond me!

#2283599 Darren Helm out for playoffs with lacerated wrist

Posted by HelmFan on 12 April 2012 - 01:36 PM

Poor guy. I miss him already..

slightly off topic, but does anyone regret having Kris Draper retire? after our top two guys (or 3 counting Val), he was better the last two years than anyone that we have now.

Wings need to make a run for Helmer. Hard working guy all season. Here's to a full recovery! We'll miss you Darren!

#2283389 Darren Helm out for playoffs with lacerated wrist

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 April 2012 - 10:42 AM

I hate to use devastating, but this sure feels like it. The bottom six is awful without Helm. Abdelkader hasn't shown any development to be able to fill Helm's role effectively. The Red Wings lose their fastest player and best fore checker at the time he becomes most valuable. I've seen enough of Emmerton too.

Fil - Z - Hudler
Mule - Pav - Nyquist
Bert - Abby - Cleary
Miller - Sheahan - Homer

I would throw Conner in over Sheahan, but sadly depth up the middle is already extremely thin without Helm.

Posted by ACallToArms on 12 April 2012 - 08:18 AM

Seriously, after having this happen to two of our guys, can the Wings brass make some sort of arm protection mandatory? The longer gloves, anything. Like Mickey keeps saying, I don't think the extra mobility you get from the shorter gloves is worth risking potentially season ending injuries over.

I doubt Helm will be back for the playoffs. Hope he has a quick recovery and can bounce back from this.

#2281538 The problem with our bottom six

Posted by HelmFan on 11 April 2012 - 03:21 PM

It sounds like Helmer is back! the mvp of our bottom 6

BOLD PREDICTION: there will be Helm for Conn Smythe talk this year
