#2628848 10/7 National Hockey League games GDT

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 08:58 AM

I watched Montreal and Toronto last night.  Montreal is bad.  They're pretty fast, but very weak.  No grit to their game at all.  Price was often the difference between leading the game and being tied, or behind.  That said, Toronto struggled mightily (and lost) to a pretty bad team.  So there's always that for a silver lining. 


Take Lucic, add about 75 IQ points, remove about 20 punds of fat, and give him a soul and you have Abdlekader: a big, rugged, power forward that can score 20 goals. No need for the "nasty" part.


Lucic has scored 20+ goals in 3 of his 7 pro seasons.  So it's not even like he regularly scores that much.  He occasionally does.  Otherwise he's just a dumb tub of s*** that takes bad penalties and doesn't play defense.

Lucic is a moron, and I wouldn't want him anywhere near the Wings - even as a janitor on JLA.

#2628757 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 07 October 2015 - 02:49 PM

I like this move for it's reflection on Blashill. In the article with mlive he says something like: "we thought, I especially thought that he makes us that much better..." He wanted to make it known that he pushed for this. Many 1st time coaches, I'd imagine, might defer to experienced management (though we don't know if others' opinions were different) or err on the safe side afraid of criticism or just unsure of their footing. It bodes well for the hope that we have a guy confident in his approach and vision for the team and won't just go along with previous norm.


I'm sure I won't agree with all his moves (Pulkkinen over Jurco? I Would even put Jurco on the 4th rather than have him sit. Don't like Nyquist with Tatar.) but it's good to see that he looks to be a strong leader.

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 October 2015 - 05:42 PM

Just a quick bump up for this thread...I thought maybe it'd be cool to see what we were saying before and after Larkin was drafted and compare it to what we are saying today! MODS you can lock this thread if you feel so no one else posts in it, but I just thought bumping it up for this week would strike some nice conversation from what we all initially thought of the pick.

*note to self*vacation in FL.

If you meet a model, make sure you don't let her take her phone to bed.  Imagine how mortified you'd be if your picture was all over the internet in bed with a model.

It makes me so happy that Larkin made the team I could vomit

#2627534 9/26 Exhibition GDT : Boston Bruins at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Posted by kipwinger on 27 September 2015 - 01:33 PM

Dang, Kindl very nearly had a hat trick last night.  There might be something to this idea of his resurrecting his career under Blash.  I realize the preseason isn't over, but right now he's out playing Smith for that 6th defense spot.  Smith's just not got the same offense as Kindl, even with the powerplay opportunities he's getting.

#2624350 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by rick zombo on 01 September 2015 - 11:39 AM

It's kind of weird how personal some of you guys make it with the players.

Whether it's Howard or Franzen or Quincey.

When they wear the winged wheel I will always cheer and hope for them to do well.

I have a feeling this stupid goalie flame war is going to carry into every GDT all season long. And frankly that's a shame.


It's about picking a side and then saying "See, I was right!!! I know all about the hockeys!!1111!!"


It's also a bit OCD.


Anyway, I'm with you. It's going to be awesome to have two capable goalies this year. Especially for the 7 back-to-back games early on. Also, it will be refreshing to see the tandem get managed propertly by Blashill. I think we can all agree that handling goalies was not one of Bacock's more potent skills.

ya know...i think i just saw Vince Vaughn buying a Wings Kronwall jersey.


good choice.


like any good break up....just go clean and quick.

I wouldn't want him to wear a wings jersey. After he ruined True Detective this past year, I think if you want to keep a successful franchise you keep Vince Vaughn away from it.
