#2617117 Free agents this off season

The last thing we need is bottom six forwards

#2615952 OT Changes

Posted by joesuffP on 24 June 2015 - 03:40 PM

I would have it 4 on 4 for 5 minutes and 3 on 3 for 2 minutes then call it a draw

#2615807 OT Changes

Cool. They should just ditch the shootouts altogether. What happens if somebody gets a penalty in OT

#2615461 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by joesuffP on 20 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

Washington is a much better team now for signing those guys last July. Franson is in the prime of his career and fills all our needs. I would overpay. I do believe Phaneuf is the better overall defensemen though but, trading assets, terrible contract, LH'd and older.

#2608953 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by joesuffP on 20 May 2015 - 01:20 PM

That much for a coach is ridiculous. I would have been happy to keep Babs but I'm almost just as happy to have a new coach. Now let the media circus really begin. Our downfall and Toronto's road to the Stanley Cup. It will be nice beating on Toronto and I'll enjoy everything bad that happens to them. Gotta admit, I lost a bit of respect for Babs.

#2607737 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Is it pretty much a given that we promote Blashill if/when Babcock leaves?

It's crazy how many great RH defensemen have changed teams over the last few years that would have helped our defense situation immensely. Niskanen, Boyle, Stralman, Myers, Garrison.......

#2605590 Locker room Clean-Out Updates

Based on what?  Nyquist > nobody in April  

Him being a better all around player. I don't understand all the flack he's getting I thought he was one of our better players these playoffs. There's more to his game than just points. He's developing as a good playmaker and his defensive game is getting better and better. I think the franchise views him as the more valuable asset as well. Tatar was the most disappointing player these playoffs for me

#2605035 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 30 April 2015 - 01:06 PM

Dekeseyer needs to work on his point shot. There's no reason why he can't put pucks on net with his frame and hockey IQ. Not having anybody on the blueline that can get pucks on goal is a massive team weakness

#2604639 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Abby is not a bonafide top 6 player.  A bonafide top 6 player would score more points in the regular season playing with Zetterberg and Nyquist.  And certainly would do more in the playoffs than Abby did.  He works hard and improved greatly, but still doesn't have a lot of talent.   

22 goals in a injury shortened season. He makes that line happen

Everyone's just going to ignore the fact that Z looked way more effective as a center than everyone besides Datsyuk. He's also been more productive and the series changed as soon as he was moved from Dats wing to centre

If you stare at the stats then everyone jumps on Nyqvist but he was a hell of a lot better than Tatar. He's always in on the puck and getting zone time. Tatar has no forecheck to his game and kills all offence if he's actually handling the puck and he also saved his worst game for game 7. He still dourest know how to play playoff hockey. Gus was good, sometimes it doesn't translate on the stat sheet, much like most of our forwards

#2602947 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by joesuffP on 28 April 2015 - 08:07 PM

Could have something to do with all those Kronwallings that went unpunished. The NHL has always found loopholes to keep important players playing in important games so of course they would make an exception for the Red Wings. Kronner must be devastated. Reminds me of 07 when Pronger got a game suspension in a pivotal game against us in the WCF and the Ducks rallied without him and won. Well, I hope anyways

#2602467 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by joesuffP on 27 April 2015 - 09:15 PM

This series has been good but the Wings losing game 7 wouldn't even bother me all that much (maybe). They have huge holes on offence and defense and Tampa just has way more skill and fire power than us, even if they play some uninspired hockey. I don't think Tampa has the guts to go to the finals. After game 2 Tampa has pretty much only been able to score after we make dumb mistakes, which is bound to happen with this roster. Need a great dman and great winger plus some growth from our younger players
