#2509497 1 Round Playoff Wallpaper

Matt does an amazing one for each round, it should be out in a few days so just keep an eye out for it.




#2508618 Play em or rest em?

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 April 2014 - 12:00 PM

Definitely should rest Kronwall, Alfie, Howard after tonights game. Dats needs to get in game shape and the kids should play unless they have any unknown public injuries

 

I would give Nyquist some rest, the guy played lights out and carried the team give him some well earned time off.

The only thing I disagree with is which dman gets promoted. I have my money on Marchenko. 




#2507168 4/8 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Sabres 2

Yeah, get used to Abdelkader up there. It's playoff time and I have a feeling its going to stay that way.


#2507117 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 April 2014 - 07:04 AM

Enough crying about the Jarnkrok trade.  There's no guarantee that he would have come in and scored points at the rate he was/is doing it in Nashville.  Different systems, different situations.  On that note, congrats to Yzerman.  He needs a few more years to allow his moves and picks to pan out in Tampa and to gain more experience at his position.




#2506983 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

If Callahan brought more to the table than Glendening, I'm sure it'd be Cally who'd be up in Detroit right now instead of Luke. He came up, grabbed a spot and didn't let go. He'll be in the lineup next season for sure.




#2506909 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by paulwoodsfan on 06 April 2014 - 08:18 PM

In today's NHL, every roster needs useful players who are cheap and provide roster flexibility. Glendening provides all of that. His less than $700k per year for three years means we will have more money to spend elsewhere and a guy who can pick up valuable minutes checking, winning d-zone faceoffs and killing penalties.




#2505450 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by e_prime on 03 April 2014 - 08:06 AM

April 4 - Buffalo

April 5 - @Montreal

April 8 - @Buffalo

April 9 - @Pittsburgh

April 11 - Carolina

April 13 - @St. Louis

 

Those two home games are MUST WINS.

I actually like the fact that 3 of those 4 road games are going to be hard fought.

A real test for the playoffs.

Keep the foot on the gas, boys.

The Grand Rapids Griffins.




#2504602 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by toby91_ca on 02 April 2014 - 01:53 PM

What it really comes down to is, what does the coaching staff want from him. Do you want to take a 50 goal scorer and turn him into a 30 goal guy and improve his D? Tough one to answer. Most teams are looking for more O. Scoring in the NHL is down and trending further south.

I know a lot of people have the view that x player sacrifices offense by playing better D, but I really think that is a myth.

 

Playing great D should give you more options on offsensive.  Getting the puck back quicker gives you greater possession time.  If you are not chipping in on D, your teams will spend more time in your own end, which is very tough to score from.

#2503977 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

That's Tatar not Smith.




#2504261 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by LAWings on 31 March 2014 - 10:09 PM

LOL. Why would anyone want a 27 year old RW that scores 45+ goals per year and is good for 200 hits per year. blindness by some is funny. Praising backstrom over Ovie? really? I would take Ovie every day over backstrom. Not even close. Go do a google search for Backstrom struggling to score. There have been stories about it every year he has been in the league. Backstrom is -19 BTW, so it isn't an ovie thing. Washington has a terrible backend other than Carlson.

Now if one wants to ralk about how ovie is used, that is a worth while debate. he is told to find a good shooting spot and stay there. To be a force in the offensive zone. That is what he does.

Some of us are old enough remember when Stevie Y didn't play D either. He was told to score and did. it wasn't until Bowman
threatened to trade him that the captain learned to play D.

 

This is what makes Datsyuk so special amongst Russian forwards, his ability to play both ends of the ice is second to none.  It will take a special kind of Russian in the NHL to be Captain and lead his team to a Stanley Cup.  Dats is really the only one that could do it, we saw his level of play at the Olympics on one leg, best player on the Russian bench. 

 

Ovie is going to need to go through a transformation as you pointed out like Stevie Y did if he wants to get to the promised land.




#2504320 Ridiculous SO goal by Athanasiou

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 01 April 2014 - 09:04 AM

the kid finished 5th overall in the OHL scoring and 2nd in goals with 49. 

I cant remember the last time the Wings had 2 legit scoring forwards at the same time coming thru the ranks.

Without Mantha tearing up the Q, we would all be drooling over AA's output this year, we have alot to look 

forward to in the coming years.
