#2619763 Babcock's already losing it?

Posted by kipwinger on 09 July 2015 - 08:48 AM

Babcock's not losing it.  Look what he just said about the Red Wings...

 

"They hired good people and let them do their jobs. There's no question that Ken Holland — everyone talks about Lidstrom and Yzerman and Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but the superstar there is Ken Holland."

Our power play is going to be lethal. Especially when Dats returns.


#2617727 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

I like that 3rd line:
Jurco-Larkin-Pulks


#2617656 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by marcaractac on 30 June 2015 - 06:20 PM

Buying him out now instead of next year makes it feel like they want Larkin in the NHL now. I'm all for it.


#2614939 2015 Draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 17 June 2015 - 12:55 PM

I'm not writing him off.  I'm saying he doesn't drive offense.  He's like Franzen in that way.  Because he's soft and doesn't enjoy working hard, other people have to create offense for him to capitalize off of.  Tons of very productive guys in the NHL are like that. 
 
But your point is taken.  When 6'4, 200+ lb. guys like Mantha play against 16-18 year olds, they're super impressive.


And your point is taken ... Get a broken leg , miss training camp and a bunch of games and don't score a goal a game in a new league that's not his age group and let's all jump on the kid and say he's not that good

And nobody said mantha was gonna be a playmaker and drive offense ... Is pulkkinen gonna drive some offenses? Give me a 30+goal

Give the guy a full season to prove himself ... He's already hard at the gym training trying to bulk up not tanning and drinking beer , doesn't seem lazy to me

Larkin is kinda sick...


#2603314 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by Jersey Wing on 29 April 2015 - 11:34 AM

Perfect. The defense is depleted terribly and Tampa has game 7 at home. So the Wings are underdogs much like they were at the beginning of the series, big underdogs. Yet they have managed to win 3 games. Tonight is house money. Nothing to lose. Like one of those series between Edmonton and Dallas all those years ago. Stay fast, play hard, run 'em over if you have to.

 

With the way things are set up I can promise you Tampa are all thinking about winning. That's why the Wings to a man have to think about hockey.




#2602941 Predictions: Game 7 vs. TBL

Posted by kickazz on 28 April 2015 - 07:42 PM

How ironic would it be if tomorrow's game goes to overtime and whoever the Defencemen that's replacing Kronwall ends up scoring the game winner? 




#2602473 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by gcom007 on 27 April 2015 - 09:19 PM

Mistakes will make or break game 7, just like every other game in this series. We are plenty capable of beating Tampa, that's abundantly clear at this point. But we are also far too capable of handing them opportunities on a silver platter. If we can minimize the defensive breakdowns and terrible line changes, we'll win. Mrazek has been good even in the losses when you really break it down. We're scoring goals. But we have to stop making so many big mistakes. Tampa is too talented not to capitalize on them.

 

Make mistakes: Lightning win. Minimize mistakes: Wings win. Simple as that.

Posted by rick zombo on 27 April 2015 - 01:22 PM

But but but....Mrazek doesn't have any playoff experience!

 

For the love of god, stop trying to start s*** and enjoy the playoff experiance.

 

Exactly. I love me some Mrazek, but no one's done jack squat yet. Last time I checked, the series wasn't over.




#2598622 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by kipwinger on 23 April 2015 - 01:56 PM

Just got free tickets to the Nats and Cardinals at 4 p.m.  Gives me just enough time to get to the bar afterward for the Wings.  Today is going to rule.

Maybe all the offensive talent in the world doesn't like playing both ways and gets frustrated when they have to.




#2598537 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 23 April 2015 - 12:28 PM

Some of y'all need to sloooooow down :lol:

It's the playoffs--there's no such thing as predictability. Sure, going up 3-1 would feel AMAZING and strangely sensual, but it is never over until we're patting butts after our 4th win. One game at a time.

NOW DESTROY THEM.


#2596880 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by kipwinger on 20 April 2015 - 02:25 PM

Aaaaaand we're back to suggesting Smith should be on the top pair?  C'mon guys. 

 

I don't have a problem with him coming back in for Marchenko.  Marchenko hasn't looked great.  But if any of you think Smith would look better than Ericsson against Tampa's best players you're nuts.
