This team is gutless and scared.  The last two seasons, they played their way into the playoffs.  These europuss cowards don't want to do anything.  

Europuss cowards. You serious? Lol


#2589737 Who do you hope the Wings play in the 1st Round?

Posted by wings7 on 05 April 2015 - 10:02 PM

You have to beat the best to win it all. Doesn't matter who we play. I'd love it if we took on Tampa in the first round, Montreal in the second, Rangers in the CF, and the Blues, Hawks, or Preds in the SCF. If this team's gonna win, let's win in style against the best teams. I don't want a consolation second round exit just because we got stuck with an easy first round matchup.

What are you talking about haha.




#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

I can't even imagine how much slower and lazier he'll be in two years let a,lone six.  He's already taking the worst angle shots I've ever seen.  In six years, he'd be shooting the puck from the other side of the red line.  


There are a lot of words to describe Henrik Zetterberg, but lazy would never be one.

Save your thoughts for the playoffs. Z has an ability to pace himself over an 82 game season. The way he plays the game is different than Pav. Pav has magic and he is still able to use that to dominate the game on most nights. Z on the other hand has success by hard work, which is harder to do over such a long season. If Z played the way he can, as hard as he can, every single night, he would be burned out. So, whether he knows it or not, he paces himself during the season, along with the fact that he is streaky. 

 

Now having said that, you go back and look at pretty well every playoffs and look at the numbers that Z still continues to put up. He always turns his game on when it matters most and I have learned to never doubt Z as a player and as a leader. Pav is no doubt the most important player on this team impact wise on a nightly basis, but IMO Z is just as impactful, for other reasons. Look at the playoffs last year. Pav did all we could, but with Z out we were still lacking. Then Z came back, rusty and no doubt not 100% and he STILL put up better numbers than anyone on the team not named Datsyuk. 

 

What I am getting at is, yes Z is older and he has had to change the way he plays, but he still remains a very very important part of this team and fans need to respect that and him.

 

Lastly, from a goal scoring standpoint, I do agree with you. I would like to see Z score more goals, but he is unable to do that while playing 2nd line Center setting up his wingers. If we want Z to go back to scoring more goals, the only option is to play him with Pav, something I would very much like to see. I think that change could spark the team going forward.

 

Z- Pav- Abby

Nyquist- Sheahan- Tatar

Weiss- Helm- Jurco

Miller- Glendening- Cleary

 

Anderson is simply not getting it done for me, I would like to see what Cleary can offer as one last run for us since he is fresh. But the big thing is Z playing with Pav if we do that, I think Z will look more like what we are accustomed to.

Felt like as good a place as any to post this.
Two really nice goals by Holmström in the SHL playoffs tonight, he's second in the playoff points standings right now.

He's looking like hell be the next late round steal by Detroit.

Also.
Has Google translate been messing up for anyone else lately?

We have a Nyquist sighting.

I do and I still think it's a good idea. Smith was our best D-man out there today, admittedly in a team effort where my grandmother probably would have been our best player (and she's dead). But using this game of all games to pick on Smith is strange to say the least. Same goes for the people who complain about Howard btw. This teams problems are certainly not named Jimmy Howard or Brendan Smith.

 

Howard had a .809 save% today. That's a problem when it's your starting goaltender.

Forget Helm.  When is Franzen coming back?

I heard that Howard was so devastated after the game that he jumped in front of a bus, he didn't get hurt though it went through his legs.

not fickle, never thought Howard was a good goalie, even back when he would get his callups, I always bitched about him and his rebound control. Listen, even Tim Cheveldae almost won 40 games playing here. Howard sucks, face it. It took you all a while to realize Hudler stunk, Franzen is garbage and soon you'll all realize Howard is junk. You'll all open your eyes soon. Some of you are opening them as we speak! :lol: Trade Howard on draft day.

Howard is horrible. He is every bit of below average. He has left a s*** stain from Dallas to Anaheim back to Detroit and into Pennsylvania...i cannot believe he still has supporters here. May as well put Franzen in net.

And Datsyuk doesnt score as much as Ovechkin so he must be s***


Howard is too inconsistent and will never be elite. Get over it.
