#2493878 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Posted by joesuffP on 09 March 2014 - 02:09 PM

Yes Howard gets absolutely no flack on this forum. He has played bad and cost us games but this game was not on him. Blame scheduling. Our only chance would be if we could net some on the PP. The team looked very tired. Especially our top lines and defensemen

I'm not a huge Howard supporter but he was easily the Wings best player. Every line was outplayed. I don't think Wings would score a goal even if Howard stood on his head and gave up 0 goals

My bad, I just realized he played in the last game and that lazy bastard scored a bunch, who woulda thought? After his last concussion LGW had me convinced his career was over. Guess I gotta start actually watching hockey games.


Ahh sarcasm

Bertuzzi (someone I've heralded in the past) is playing terrible now. Even the few points hes been getting aren't special. IMO he's looked to be a liability on the ice lately. No sense of where to be offensively or defensively. IMO he's done.


Whaaa... Bert has been solid since being called up and I'm a bonafide Bertuzzi hater. 4th line looks like a scoring threat I'd keep that group together when healthy.

Feels kinda crappy to be hoping for a young kids career to be mediocre but I find myself doing it. LGW would be unbearable if he started lighting it up in the NHL


#2493086 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

With all the injuries these youngsters are getting a ton of great experience.

Nyquist is close to a point a game. Crazy season

We really should be undefeated since Olympic break the team has played solid hockey for the most part and deserved to win every game. Luck will turn.

Getting some help around the league as it stands

Leino. Board was devastated when they let him go


#2491639 Who will have a better career as a Red Wing: Weiss or Legwand?

Posted by joesuffP on 06 March 2014 - 12:12 PM

21 games and he'll be gone. Would've preferred Vanek, but Legwand played in Plymouth which Holland thinks matters. Whatever. Not happy with this trade. And Bertuzzi should've been dealt - either replaced with someone similar [] or some pucks. He contributes nothing to this "depth" going forward which Holland spoke of. Excuses, excuses.


Bertuzzi, Cleary and the rest of our scrubs are untradeable this forum needs to get that through their head. We're lucky we were able to unload Eaves for nothing. Vanek wouldn't do a lick of good if he's got Andersson setting him up as his center. Andersson would be our #1 center right now if we hadn't made that trade let me remind you

Shutdown the first line Kings, Blues or Bruins style and well add to that our  unreal defense I'm sure the contenders are already in fear of potentially playing us.


Sacrificing Jarnkrok to make the playoffs is worth it to me. It would be nice to end this disastrous season on a positive especially for the young guys. This stretch will be huge for them and will be pretty damn exciting for a Red Wings fan.

I think scouts get attached to their players and over value much like this site

Tofolli is a proven NHL player. Garth Snow is an idiot and had his price way too high then it looked like nobody was going to take him so he threw Vanek at Montreal

Lets see, one of two players who are on good contracts, are able to man a PP, and are pretty good defensively? I would have parted with one of Nyquist or Tatar and a B level prospect and a 2nd round pick easily.
 
Why? Because they are under team control, they are relatively young, and they fill a need that doesn't disappear the second week of April.


You're upset we traded Jarnkrok. Who is 3-4 years from maybe being an effective NHL player for a center we desperately needed. But you'd give up Nyquist/Tatar for Erhoff?
