#2659712 Kronwall Injury

Posted by joesuffP on 14 March 2016 - 04:57 PM

Blashill has not done a good job this year at all. He is a rookie and is still learning but this has been by no means a success for him. I don't think he's lost the confidence of the locker room but you can tell their is a sense of disorganization that nobody has any answers for. Blashill has to find some kind of identity by next year or he's gone. I wouldn't be that suprised if we miss the playoffs and he's fired for a more experienced coach. This season has been a failure in every way

Weiss>Richards

Imagine if he got Richards usage he would putting up similar if not better numbers

20 goal season as a 19 year old rookie. Pretty impressive

Abby had a huge game


#2658420 Marchenko vs. Smith

Posted by joesuffP on 10 March 2016 - 01:07 PM

Smith has shown he can excel when given more responsibility. He may be a guy that needs a lot of looks to really be effective. Imagine what a guy like Subban would look like if he was playing 12 minutes a night with no power play time. Let him play with Kronwall or DD in the top 4.

 

Märchenkö will be a good replacement for Q. Quincey has been sensational at times but pretty inconsistent. Marchenko is a rookie and is still learning the ropes but has done a fine job. He will only get better. The only thing is right now we don't need more defense first guys. Our main strength is our speed, one of the fastest in the NHL but we can't play fast when our defense isn't getting the puck up ice quickly

Smith in for Marchenko

All these lineups are moot if Blashill doesn't keep them together. Everyone wants to see more AA. The kid took it upon himself to fire this team up and fight against a pretty scary Blue Jackets team when we were flat. Kind of embarrassing for the wings but this kid is fired up to be in the NHL

This should just be New Years tradition for the NHL, Wings vs Leafs

this team has no redeeming qualities, nothing to hang their hat on, nothing to be proud of. Statistically we're an all around bad hockey team

I keep going with the hot goalie.... I don't understand what's so wrong, even in the playoffs, of having 2 goalies play. If we got two guys that can steal us games, I'm playing the one whose getting it done.

Both our goalies kind of have consistency issues. I know Mrazek is young, but getting 16 wins in the playoffs, I can see either having a slump through that period. Either one would be jacked to be put in and could give us a game stealing goalie at all times

Mrazek earned the #1 tag by playing fantastic while Jimmy slumped and now it's the other way around. Why wouldn't you want the better goaltender (at the moment). One bad goaltending performance could be the difference of making the playoffs and not making it

As good as Z and D look together we really need more balanced offense. Nobody can handle that scoring center role aside from Z and D. Not with these wingers at least. It hasn't been consistently done all season

Finally!! See what happens when you don't shoot directly into shin pads

My dream would be to beat the Hawks in the finals

Imagine a line of Larkin-AA-Abby.

Anybody have the clip of AA's epic rush in OT?
