#2523420 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by nawein on 10 June 2014 - 05:50 PM

Thanks for the compliment. You want to run guys who are aging and can't stay healthy out there year after year at forward with a MAJORITY if them in the decline. Thank GOD you don't run this team.


I think what he's trying to say is that that defense looks atrocious and the top 6, while not being the best top 6 ever, is still full of guys that can contribute and create offense. The top 6 could use some work, sure, but if we don't fix the D (top 4 specifically) we're in more trouble than if we don't fix the top 6. And don't say we need to sign a bottom pair guy, because we have 8 options already in the system. Besides, since you think Smith is a top 4 guy (which we know I disagree with), wouldn't it be nice to have a top 4 guy on your third pair? Bottom line is we need a top 4 guy waaayyyyy before we need a top 6 forward.

Am I the only one that doesn't think Smith is a top 4 dman?

Are people not watching these playoffs? Vanek is NOT the answer.

#2514110 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by gcom007 on 22 April 2014 - 09:28 PM

Big difference between expecting a shut out and expecting to not give up incredibly soft/stupid goals and subsequently leads early on in two playoff games in a row. Huge, huge, huge difference in fact. Those kind of goals set the tone and both days, Boston comes back and scores another within just a few minutes. Again, he's hardly the only problem, but when your goalie is giving up leads to a team like Boston early two games in a row in the playoffs, it's a very serious problem whether he plays better the rest of the game or not. He obviously wasn't exactly lights out the rest of game two either.

 

Jimmy Howard did not give the Red Wings a chance to get things started against Boston, but he absolutely straight-up handed Boston that chance, two playoff games in a row. That's the bottom line and that's why it's a serious problem no matter his play the remainder of the game.

Obviously, the defense has been poor and the offense has been anemic.  It isn't the amount of goals that Howard has given up, its also about the when and the how.  A majority of the team were playing in Grand Rapids to start the season, Datsyuk is clearly not 100%, Z is out, Franzen is a no show.  Howard is a number one goalie making number one goalie money in the prime of his career.  It's on him to lead the team with his play.  He did so in game one, not so much in games 2 and 3.

Dear Red Wings,

 

F*** off.

#2495102 Howard = Average

Posted by roboturner on 14 March 2014 - 12:08 PM

How are we supposed to measure whether Howard is any good if you don't compare him to other goalies?? For being a discussion board you Mods sure hate discussion taking place.

 

I don't really know what you guys want. Should we start a goalie comparison thread, one which will inevitably lead to Howard being discussed. Then we would have TWO Howard threads! Or would it be reasonable to discuss that in this thread? You know, the one specifically about Howard.

f*** you Kenny Holland for putting this ***** team together.
 
A guy like Chara would never challenge McGrattan like that.  


You're a god damn fool shut up

Let's give props to one of the heroes of this game: Brendan Smith has gone from goat to freaking anchor. Superior mobility, speed, puck handling...he's finally emerged as someone we can count on. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2
