It's ok we have Cleary to replace everything Abby brings


#2589331 Do Red Wings fans deserve better?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 05 April 2015 - 02:50 PM

 
I'd be willing to bet that when an athlete thanks fans, it's usually to shut them up. I'm willing to concede that I could be wrong, but I don't think I am, and I would make that bet. If you want to keep a running tab on who is giving their 110%, Coach, go ahead. The chances of your list matching up with another person's list is...well...that math sucks because there are quite a few combinations, but it is a finite number. So, please stop with your high and mighty demands to be the only reason a team succeeds.


So you basically think players don't appreciate fans and don't actually care about them. There may be a couple like that but I'd bet any amount of money most of them are sincere in thanking fans.

I've been holding off on posting in this thread but it keeps popping up so here goes. I've been lucky enough to watch my team win 4 Stanley cups and make the playoffs 23 (soon to be 24) straight seasons. I don't feel like I deserve better than that. In fact I am grateful for getting more than fans of other teams get. So what if we've had a rough few years lately, rebuilding while still making the playoffs is a great accomplishment and I am happy to be a part of it. Anyone who thinks otherwise IS spoiled.

#2588879 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2 (SO)

This team is awful. Datsyuk is done, z is done, Howard can't save a beach ball, Tatar belongs on the 4th line cause he hasn't scored in 2 games, Babcock is going to Toronto, and glenfiddich is a plug. We're gonna lose 12-0 with parise and suter scoring all of them and assisting on all of them.

Hope that works, go wings!!


#2588847 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 04 April 2015 - 10:18 AM

 
If we get swept, we need to make huge changes. Average team at best, the worst thing an NHL team can consistently do is be a fringe playoff team because we don't get high picks.
 
This is all happening while we have two of the best players in the world...once theyre gone I hate to see how rough we might be
 
Im sure most will disagree, but we basically got swept last season as well and showed nothing to Boston. As it looks right now, we may get swept again but who knows.


We're not getting swept. I'll put money on it. How quickly so many lose faith when the team hits a rough patch. I won't be surprised to see us make the conference finals.

The Joe seats are uncomfortable and sitting next to overweight people makes watching the entire game almost unbearable. The aisles are far too small and the bathroom sucks. But I absolutely love the nostalgia that comes with going to the Joe, I've been going since I was a young boy and I will for sure miss it, even the parts I don't like. But especially the fact that you can sit in the worst sweat in the house and still have a great view of everything on the ice

Isn't it still murica? They can't tell me what I can wear to the game, it's downright unconstitutional! Time for a revolution!

The secondary market prices are always jacked to begin with. At least the times I've used stubhub for tix. Of course those are usually playoff tix.


Try bordercitytickets.com I've always had good success finding lower than face value tickets there


#2588676 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 April 2015 - 09:02 AM

No Joke... They might as well toss McCollum in for a game.

My logic:
-His numbers have been solid the past 2 seasons and he's apparently been real hot lately (12-1-3 in past 16).
-He's eligible for Group VI UFA status this summer, so he'll be hungry to audition for a new opportunity for next fall
-Couldn't be any worse than what they're getting from Howie, Mrazek or the Glass Monster...


So we've gone from Howie sucks mrazek is the savior to Howie and mrazek suck McCollum is the savior?


#2587848 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 April 2015 - 05:18 PM

On teams with a shot they are


They would barely be 3-4 guys if they were all on the same team. Those are all top pairing.

Maybe Crosby Tavares and toews are top 3 forward and Malkin stamkos and Seguin are 2nd liners, which makes datsyuk a goalie


#2587766 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 April 2015 - 05:05 AM

@AnsarKhanMLive: Babcock said Mrazek will start Thursday vs. Boston and sounds like it's his job to lose.


Well at this point go with the hot hand

What does one have to do to "deserve" ice time on a particular line? IMO Babcock's plan all along has been to develop Abdelkader into a power forward, and part of that development required going head to head with the top lines on our opponents, which means top-six ice time even when he wasn't scoring at nearly a top-six pace.


Which is fine. But let's not act like he instantly had success is all I'm saying

I love how Abby has played. He could really end up being a core player for us which is fantastic. He's transitioned from a grinder role to a power forward seamlessly.


There were quite a few seams along the way. Lets not pretend last year he was a grinder and this year he got promoted. The experiment was failing for a couple years. I'm happy with how his game has evolved and I hope it continues to grow but he didn't deserve top 6 minutes for a while that he was up there
