#2386685 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by ZforC on 19 April 2013 - 07:22 AM

It is simple really, Wings need to win at least 3 of the next 5 and take the other two to overtime like someone mentioned. Anyway, I wouldn't be pissed if they missed because a chance at the first overall would be great and who cares what tank to win teams are saying about the RedWings? This franchise still has broken records and provided so much great hall of fame player there aren't many others who have been done that.

 

Let these bandwagoners brag about it, once this joke of a league is fixed the Wings will be back s tronger than ever. Imagine if this team gets a top 10 pick and gunning for the cup in two or 3 years again :-)

I agree totally. I also think that the wings now are built for playing in the eastern conference. While we are competative in the west we are not a Big physical crash and bang team like most teams in the west. We fit in the east because of our style of play. Skilled puck possesion. There are not too many teams in the east that would scare me(NYR maybe. Nobody better say the penguins .....) but I generally feel with our current roster, if we were in the east would be a 4th or 5th seed at worst



I agree to the post above as well. 

 

about the skill thing.  I find our bottom six thinking too much that they are top six.  there is not enough of a grinding aspect to their game.  they're too soft right now thinking they can out skill when they cannot.

 

get back to your game bottom six....hit, grind, dump and chase.

 

this team lacks an identity.

IF we had bert and helm back healthy, this team wouldnt be struggling to get the 8th seed in the west




#2380099 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by ZforC on 04 April 2013 - 06:55 AM

What? Who was the GM before Holland? Are you 12? Jimmy D has already been there and done it. he was the one that buildt this team from scratch. I guess you don't remember anything before 1998 or so.........

Yeah who was that guy? Ya know the guy that built a cup winning team in Long Island and then in detroit :P Its sad that some ppl dont remember past 1998.....Bandwogoners........gotta love em ;)

 

Also ppl need to quit bitching about what holland did or didnt do. The mans one of the best gms of all time : 6 Presidents trophies(no other team has more than 2 ;)  ) 21 straight playoff app. 7 WCF appearences,  6 SCF 4 Cup wins, ... Seriously what more can you ask for out of a gm. COuld be worse, remember when we were the dead wings?(poor mickey :(      ) Be thankfull that you have a team that has been competative. PPl need to quit being so damned spoiled. 

 

Obviously he doesnt want to trade the farm away for 1 player. Not in the cap era. PPl have to remember that most of these guys are still young. I feel we have a very good core of young players. Lashoff to me has been the biggest surprise, Kinda reminds me of Nick abit with the way he plays. Nothing flashy just smart descisions. We most teams go through a "rebuilding" stage they are garbage.(Look at calgary and buffalo) But sometimes our fanbase reminds me of lakers nation a little bit. You cant dominate for years and years with out having to rebuild at some point. (not to get off topic) Look at Kobe, The closest thing to MJ, Hes getting older. PLAYERS GET OLDER. Cant stop the inevitable




#2306311 favorite wing never to win the cup in Detroit

Here is a name NO-ONE has mentioned: Mike Knuble. They guy has turned into a solid 2 way player and scores 20-30 goals anually. I was still kinda young when he played for us but he was one of my faves as a kid.
