#2544630 10/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Flyers 4

Posted by Euro_Twins on 25 October 2014 - 09:48 PM

That game was lost because the Wings allowed the Flyers to stay in the game despite being dominated. 
 
This team has GOT to find a way to score more than two goals in a game on a consistent basis. 
 
Score more than two goals.  Score more than two goals. Score more than two goals. Score more than two goals.
 
Two goals is not enough to win hockey games.  Every other possible complaint about this team pales in comparison.  Eight games in - two goals scored or less in six.  75% of the time not scoring enough.

Also, how long is it going to take before something significantly different is implemented on the power play?
 
Chances are any change can't cause them to score fewer power play goals.


Top three pk teams in the league right now have the worst pp. Maybe a coincidence. Maybe not. Either way get Smith in the pp, get nestrasil off, get helm off, get Weiss in, and get Franzen in when he's healthy again.

I agree on nesty being shopped and as crazy as it sounds I think Weiss is being shopped too depending on who he would waive his NTC  for


They aren't shopping Weiss, they aren't shopping Smith. They are shopping kindl. The reason Smith isn't getting pp time is because they want to trade kindl so they are giving him every opportunity to score. How would it make sense they aren't giving Smith pp time because they are shopping him? Wouldn't they want to increase his value not lower it? If he performs well on the pp it adds value. If they were shopping Weiss he would be playing in order to increase his value also.

I was so proud of that pk 100% I knew it wouldn't last forever but I figured it would run out against WAS


I was actually surprised that Philly didn't score on the previous pp. Detroit's pk hasn't look great tonight. Doesn't help when you take 5-6 penalties every game.

Tatar totally ruined Monster's egregiously blown coverage save percentage on that goal.


Well his goals that come from in front of the net percentage is awful. All the goals scored are from in front of the net.

I'd rather see Cleary. At least give him a game. 


No. That a a bad idea. Then babs will say he's a warrior and he'll play 40 games before he gets benched. I'd rather see Weiss.

Do we really need both Nestrasil and Andersson in the same game?


Not only do we need both, we also need Cleary

Babcock does not like Smith


Did you quote the wrong article? No where in there does it say babs hates Smith

I don't care who you are, that is a very bad call by the refs. another game taken away from us, wings are 3-0-1 without the refs killing us late in games this year, 3-1-2 with...




#2543310 Buffalo to retire Hasek's number

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 October 2014 - 10:18 PM

 
I don't think he was ever bad here. Average/acceptable but not outstanding, sure. But not like some complained about him.
 
EDIT I also think Osgood deserves more credit than most give him
 
EDIT 2 he was also way past his primeyears those seasons, I thought ppl had unrealistic expectations, and despite that he still played pretty good


People give ozzy far too much credit around here. He wasn't very good at all when he left Detroit.

Hasek on the other hand was awesome and as pointed out was still decent when he came to Detroit.

Smith is getting better and better the more he plays.


Go figure. Kid with less than 2 years mhm experience is getting better, glad they didn't trade him. Lots of knee jerkers would have done so immediately. I'm happy he's getting better :)

Uhhhh by the sounds of it they're pretty close to a deal. Am I missing something? They're barely off on financials, and off on term by just one year. How is that a low ball? They offered a mirror contract of Holland's. That's a pretty fair place to start negotiations IMO. Also wouldn't that deal make him one of the highest paid coaches in the entire league?


I think it would be the highest paid coaching contract in the league if I'm not mistaken. He's was already pretty close to the top (and was when he signed) at $2m
