#2514153 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by IndianaRedWing on 22 April 2014 - 09:57 PM

He didn't have to shut them out in Game 2.  The Wings made it a 2-1 game and Howard lets in a somewhat soft goal late in the second period to totally deflate the team.  How different would that game have looked only down 1 goal and the team skating well.  That is what I meant  by the timing of the goals.

 

So much denial here. Howard didn't kill the Wings' chance to win tonight. From the opening faceoff, the Wings never gave themselves a chance.

 

When you score 2 goals in 3 games and you *aren't* facing elimination in game 4, there's a good chance that your goalie is your series MVP. Not because he's necessarily been lights out, but because everyone has been worse.

 

And even then, it's not enough. Apparently, there's widespread belief that Howard has to keep track of when his teammates are having, ahh, that time of month. He has to wear the pants on the team.

 

Okie dokie. 

 

It's unbelievable that people think the team that's showed up for the first 3 games could legitimately compete for the cup, but for Howard. Whatever makes the loss easier to take, I guess. It's probably better than booze.

I can tell you based upon what we saw today that Detroit got hosed. I can tell you based upon Holland's own statements and the information available that the deals that were offered for players like Yandle and Jbo (among others) were in the same ballpark as what other teams were asked or actually paid. So I have to believe that Holland is the issue, not the 29 other GMs.


If it was that easy, I can't believe it didn't happen.

It's easy to sit here looking at a roster and making up trades that "could've" gotten it done.

In the end, Holland made a move that gives the team a good chance at the playoffs while trading a spare forward, a draft pick, and a player who may never have played for the the Red Wings.  If Jarnkrok decides a full time job in Nashville is worth staying for and he develops into a top 6 center, this trade should be viewed as a definitive win for Nashville.  If Jarnkrok bolts or never develops, Detroit wins.

And after they get bounced from the playoffs we get to hear Holland dust off the old gem of a speech 'well its important to get into the playoffs, anything can happen, had a bounce gone our way' etc etc etc. The realistic outcome of this trade is the Wings sold more of their future to keep a streak alive that is meaningless anyway.

The problem is he send only top 6 potential center prospect not name Sheahan


 
There's time to get more center prospects. There isn't time to find a patch for the Wings. This trade makes sense from almost all risk management perspectives.

Would rather skip 1 season of playoffs than give away our future

not downplaying Jarnkrok or Legwand, but it was way overpayment. Holland is not a good GM, in any sense if the word...

I'm changing teams .... I can't believe this f***en bulls*** .... If your giving up a top guy like jar ok for A 33 yr old 3rd line ufa center what the hell was holland gonna give up for a top 4 d?

I've supported holland forever but this trade alone he deserves to get fired

I can't remember being this upset in so long .... He just traded away our potential future number 1 center!


Ughhhhhhhhj

I really doubt Jarnkrok is the prospect. If he is, Holland should be fired.

Okay, it's official - I am not pleased with this acquisition.  The cost was too damn high!

No excuses not to score on the 5on3, just brutal.

s*** happens. Made me grin really with all the cheap s*** that has happened to the Wings this year. Good for Cleary.




#2471956 Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

Posted by LAWings on 10 January 2014 - 07:01 PM

I'm proud of Dano.  He actually gives a damn and increased our fight count.  I just wish he did it to Pavelski or Jumbo Joke.    

 

Also, I liked what Hannan did, getting up and retaliating.  Our milksop players wouldn't have done that.  And Hannan is far from a fighter.

 

Why?  Why would you want him to injure a skilled player when Cleary is barely a 4th line player?

 

This is the kind of BS that needs to stop in the league... help me understand why elbowing Joe in the head is ok?

Babs says that garbage constantly and it's consistently inaccurate. If this team is going to be overwhelmingly mediocre anyways, I want Nyquist and Tatar playing a lot of minutes. Dan Cleary has no role here in the future (realistically, not sure in Ken Holland's world). Call up Jurco and Sheahan too. Let's at least build a foundation instead of middling in mediocrity with a bunch of pieces that have no long-term value.

Gonna be awhile if at all...still wish he'd had played junior

 

Nah then he would have been fighting ALL THE TIME.  College let's him focus on his other skills more.  Everyone knows he can fight just fine.

We apparently have the best coach in the NHL but we are known as a team that blows leads and can't handle pressure. We have a somewhat decent special team after 3 years of being complete garbage. Why is he regarded as a great coach I don't get it

 

A coach can only do so much with a pretty average roster.
