#2411828 WCSF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (DET leads series 3-2)

1st good shift of the game


#2399300 Should Howard be benched?

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 08 May 2013 - 12:13 PM

He is average. But there are no options worth mentioning. Norm Miracle ain't walkin through that door.

 

I just don't understand posts like this.  Jimmy has been the rock that kept this team alive.  So dumb

Howard is a stud. He's the reason we're even in the playoffs and will probably have to be the reason we advance, if we do. There is really no option to bench him. Teams lose games sometimes and that makes the starting goaltender's stats ugly.

Is this a serious thread? Besides one bad period in a game that we ended up winning, Howard has been fine.

Ok look, the non biased Edzo doing the Hawks game.  :nono:

Wow, so that is how you score.  You mean you aren't supposed to take it into the corner and shoot it at an impossible angle OR pass it in front of the net with no one there?

 

What's that other thing we do?  Oh yeah shoot it from the blue line right at the goalie and don't make him have to shift at all.  Last night I guarantee I could have stopped 3/4 of those shots we had with a defense in front of me.  I'm not saying I have the reflexes to save them, I'm saying if I just stood there,  no way they were going in.  Puck goes left to the corner cover that side. Puck goes right cheat to that side.  Take a knee hug the post, get hit by the puck, rinse, repeat.

#2391014 Jim Nill to be named Dallas Stars GM

Posted by ogreslayer on 27 April 2013 - 08:05 PM

As soon as my editor posts my new blog entry, you should check it out.  It is a pretty heated slamming of Ken Holland for going against his word and stringing Nill along.  This is the WORST THING TO HAPPEN TO DETROIT in the past 20 years.  The only thing that would be worse is losing Hakin. Holland is spent and he said he was going to retire post Lidstrom.  Now he can't because the guy who deserved the job a year ago is leaving to Dallas and I am angry and embarrassed.  I have no faith in this organization if they string along Jim and then lose him in favor of Holland who seems too timid and tired.  I really hope this is wrong, and if it is right I hope Holland gets fired before Nill signs in Dallas.  I felt secured in the future of the team until tonight. 

Switch to decaf & take off the tin foil hat.  

 

From Craig Custance:

 

"Red Wings GM Ken Holland likes to joke that Lidstrom's retirement press conference will be followed shortly by his own"

 

From Bob McKenzie:

 

 “DET GM Kenny Holland always used to joke, at least I think he was joking, that he would retire five minutes after Nick Lidstrom retired.”

 

From Kevin Allen @ US Today:

 

"GM Ken Holland used to joke that he was going to retire when Lidstrom retired"

 

And strung along?  The same man who was at the top of pretty much every team's wish list that had an opening the past couple of years, was given opportunities to interview for them, & turned them all down due to the fact he wanted to stay in Michigan as his wife was battling cancer?  The same man that was paid as much as GM's throughout the league & was on record saying that he loved the autonomy that Kenny gave him to do his job?  That's being strung along?  In the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka, "Lighten up, Francis".

 

Good for Nill.  He's ready to move on to the next step of his career & run his own team and good for the Wings to recognize it's time too, just like they did with Stevie.

If anyone took what Ken Holland said seriously about retiring when Lidstrom did, you have some serious issues.  Best of luck to Jim Nill.

#2320350 Does Babcock walk?

Posted by FlashyG on 19 July 2012 - 12:22 PM

With the spate of Free Agents seemingly passing us by/the perceived inactivity by Holland RE: preparing for Lidstrom's departure, does anyone see Babcock walking? I doubt he does as he's been a big part of shaping this team and working with them to create pretty much HIS system here. But he's got to be pissed now. As far as I know from mainly rumour surrounding forums such as this one, he doesn't like it much when he says he needs a piece or two and the management say we're all good so can you see this, or another such situation soon, as being the final push towards the door?

He is probably the premier head coach in the league and could walk into any other team, so maybe he does soon?

Just what I happened to think of when I heard the Weber news, because if I'm pissed that we've once again missed out on a guy that was supposed to be at the top of our list, imagine how he feels having to coach...


Why would Babcock leave? Holland has given him or attempted to give him every single thing he asked for this offseason.

He wanted right handed shots, - he got 3 of them.
He wanted depth for the bottom 6 - he has depth in abundance.
he wanted to get bigger and faster. He got slightly bigger, but a ton faster

The only other thing he said they need was a winger for Pav, and the Wings are still waiting on both Doan and Semin.

Holland also attempted trades for Rick Nash (a favorite of Babcock's), and #1 defenceman in Yandle and Weber.

Babcock isn't some overreactive fan, he likely recognizes that you can't make everyone come to Detroit, or force teams to trade with you. I bet he's overly pleased with the effort Holland has put in to try and give him what he wants.


#2309301 So What's Up With Abby & Quincey?

Posted by Shaman on 23 June 2012 - 04:59 PM

Abby is one of the few physical forwards the Wings have. The team without him would be incredibly soft.

I believe Khan said the Wings would talk to both at the draft. Therefore, I think it's too early to speculate on either player.


Except he loves to take dumb penalties and his defensive game is still pretty rough.

I enjoyed the Will Arnett videos, but the show was generally sub-par.

#2308322 NHL Awards

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 20 June 2012 - 08:50 PM

Wow... You know, when I saw he had the nomination I wasn't surprised. I am a little surprised he actually won it though.

He won over Weber by 12 votes.

I was definitely surprised by the win. I figured voters would wait another season to see if he panned out and developed defensively a bit. But I guess it's easier for hockey writers to go by points.

As much as it would've sickened me for Weber to win it, he was more deserving.

The funniest part is over on hfboards Sens fans are comparing Karlsson to Coffey, Leetch, and now a few are saying to compare him to Orr isn't much of a stretch.

Doan winning the leadership award was a bit of a joke too after his behavior after the Coyotes got eliminated. Crying in the lockerroom about the refs being against them.


#2306859 2012 SCF : Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils

Posted by Heaten on 12 June 2012 - 02:24 AM

The refs non-call, then 5 minute major for Kings to go up 3-0 really cheapens this win for me.
