Possibly looking to get Weiss going again; he's slowed down lately after a hot streak.


Ya. With those 10 minutes a night he won't get going anywhere

You understand that it's not really fair to take the opinions of like 50 people and then mash them into one statement like they were all just one schizophrenic individual, right?
 
And to be honest, maybe I missed a couple, but I don't really recall any non sarcastic overreactions like that from anybody


Are you calling me a sarcastic schizophrenic?

I understand Ericsson, but I think Quincey's played pretty well this season. He's played smart hockey, works well on the PK and is somehow 3rd in points for defensemen on this team. I hated the signing at the beginning of the season, but he's proven a lot of people wrong. He's doing exactly what the Red Wings need him to do with DeKeyser, IMO.


I could be 3rd in points for defenseman on the wings

You guys understand that I have no influence whatsoever on what the actual management of the Wings does, Right? It's just one more fans opinion.
No I'm not mad, WTF haha. Again, this isn't just a reaction to a couple of games, it's about their playing styles.
And you really missed the boat thinking I'm just going for the flavor of the month. That whole thing was meant to combat that idea. When I say we should get Mrazek going it's because of this long term plan.
 
But yeah you're right, I forgot about how those Wings teams of yesterday never traded. We didn't trade people to get Shanahan, Chelios, and Hasek. WTH am I thinking here? Those guys we (didn't) traded to get them were signed to play with us and by god we honored that, out of pure loyalty! (that was sarcasm)
 
DeKeyser is a special case seeing as how he grew up around here.
 
I understand the over ripe philosophy. Which is why I understand none of what I said will ever happen. But there need to be exceptions to this rule when it's called for. Like I pointed out with Hank and Pav. Petr might be over ripe already.
 
I just looked up a bunch of other goalies (the good ones anyway) to see when they started starting.
Anywhere from 21-25, with a bunch starting about 22-23. seems a pretty standard age


You can't say dekeyser is a special case cause he grew up here but not mention that almost every fa we were after that didn't sign here went where they grew up

I'm pretty sure Jeremy Roenick is who Ronald McDonald is firing his bazooka at in that picture


It's all coming together now

I'm glad he played back to back.  I'm sure it won't hurt his confidence.  It did give the team a wake up call though and it looks like it did.  


Ya, McCollum isn't exactly a great option to play. I understand it, I just wish he could have gotten some rest especially against a terrible team.
