#2592139 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by joesuffP on 10 April 2015 - 07:26 PM

He's not really super aggressive. He puts up points because he has skill with the puck and good hockey IQ with a great point shot. He doesn't really jump into the play a lot. Great hitter and protects his crease and is no slouch defensively

With Kronner, Phaneuf and DD likely putting up 30+ points our top 4 looks respectable. Phaneuf-DD would be a really well balanced pair that can play shut down and score pretty well

It's wierd because Kindl seems to score everytime he's in the lineup but only gets to play when there is injuries

Good lord. I always feared smith may just not have it between the ears, but I never thought he was as stupid as Clowe.

(I'm still annoyed Clowe didn't get a penalty or fined for that)


Helm's SH breakaway goal was the highlight of the season for me though

I wasn't able to watch the game tonight. But can someone explain what exactly Smith did to take a penalty? Played the puck with his glove somehow while on the bench??

I guess he should've used his stick. Clowe did that from the bench to break up an odd man rush against the Kings in 2012 and there was no penalty called.


Pretty much the same idea, he batted the puck out of the air while it was in play. Montreal was on a powerplay which cause a 5 on 3 which they scored on immediately. Then they just zoomed in on his big dumb face for what seemed like an eternity

I feel the people that are positive all the time and "actually know what they're talking about" are just old people that don't really care about the Wings anymore.

If I'm matching up against us the gameplan is throw it at Jimmys feet.... Says a lot that Babs is still not sure who he's going with. Honestly, I have no idea. I'd be happy and excited to see Mrazek start but going with Jimmy is probably the smarter move
I think our defense has played great especially Ericsson. He was probably our best dman today

There's no chance Howard can win us a 7 game series unless we score 5 goals a game

It's impossible to win when Jimmy may let in three attempted passes on any given night

Yeah Jimmy played great until we had to hold a lead so yeah no confidence in somebody who can let in 3 straight duds in a game 7.... But mostly games 1 through 4


#2590809 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Maybe if we were playing our best hockey. We've played two great hockey games in a month. Hopefully the playoffs snap them out of this bizarre funk

You guys are crazy. We're playing like complete crap and you want the hottest team in the league to stay in pace with us

Posted by joesuffP on 02 April 2015 - 09:41 PM

Taking a stupid penalty right after we go up 2-0 was huge too. Ughh we were so close to getting the puck out of the zone before that PP goal too. Then the 3rd goal is inexcusable with 2 minutes left, we had no chance


#2587947 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by joesuffP on 02 April 2015 - 02:12 PM

Defense kept us in the game just as much Mrazek did. Then Mrazek crapped the bed in the SO as soon as his defense was gone.


You're trolling


#2587921 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by joesuffP on 02 April 2015 - 11:49 AM

Right now this team doesn't have a number 1 goaltender as far as I am concerned.Mrazek is an unproven rookie and Howard needs to find his game. Monster is sadly hurt.


You would rather play Gus than Mraz and Howard? Mrazek just stole us a point in his last start. Cut him some slack.

I honestly like having Cleary in the lineup
