#2503515 Injury Updates

Posted by Playmaker on 30 March 2014 - 02:14 PM

Personally, I'd rather they just put Weiss on the shelf for the rest of the season and both sides can put this season behind us and start fresh.  He's basically missed two whole seasons, he's with a new team and can't be in good shape at all.  I can't really see him adding a whole lot.  While I expected more out of Legwand, I still think he's going to bring more to the table than Weiss.  I just don't think the Wings can afford to put someone in who needs 10 games to get his legs and conditioning back. 




#2503443 Do you want monster to start tomorrow?

Posted by Playmaker on 30 March 2014 - 06:10 AM

I don't have an issue with it.  Howard could use the rest and either way, it's a good for Jimmy.  If Monster has a bad game, it gives Jimmy the feeling he has to be the guy.  If he does well, it pushes Jimmy to match the performance.  The Wings have generally done well with Monster in net, so I don't see it as throwing a game away. Babcock would never have rested Jimmy after a loss for fear of hurting his confidence.  It makes sense to do it after a big win when Jimmy had a decent game, so it doesn't appear that he's been pulled for poor play.

The Toronto feed just showed a few of Howard's "timely saves" from this game. I guess they did not get the Howard sucks memo.

Quincey made a good play, so I guess he should win the Norris.

So you expect Howard to just shut them out after half the game. Howard has already made a couple extremely timely saves in this game. How about a timely PP goal?

Yes, I do.  He has to steal us a game here somewhere.  Chris Osgood just said the same thing.

Wow that line is a total transformation from the first period.  How does that happen?  <gonna get my degree in sports psychology>

Big saves at timely moments and converting on scoring chances and soft goals by the other goalie.

Andersson with a couple of really good shifts and nice set up to Helm's goal.




#2502692 Perspective

Posted by Playmaker on 28 March 2014 - 07:19 PM

Mike Ilitch hasn't run the day to day operations of the Wings or the Tigers for many years.  It's so ridiculous to say "He doesn't care about the Wings".  Yeah, he didn't offer a couple hundred million to try and get Parise and Suter, did he?  No, he doesn't care about the Wings. Chris Ilitch spends money on the Tigers because he CAN.  There's no cap to worry about.  He did the same with the Wings when he could.  The Bertuzzi/Sammy/Cleary situations have been beaten to death, and two of them haven't seen the ice in forever, yet it still doesn't keep people from complaining about it.

 

That the Wings have this much young talent without any high draft picks in forever is remarkable and Holland should be commended for that.   If they do make the playoffs after all they've been through this season and are able to rebuild on the fly yet again and be competitive, Holland should never be criticized again.




#2502676 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by Playmaker on 28 March 2014 - 06:36 PM

Nice comeback by Avery, but he was banging his sister in law and his wife served him during the Stanley Cup finals.

 

Lead to one of the best signs at a game ever:

 

Tickets to a Stanley Cup Game:  $95

Alimony demanded from your wife:  9 million

Sex with your sister in law:  Priceless




#2502639 They Call me...Tater Salad

Posted by Playmaker on 28 March 2014 - 03:43 PM

Remember earlier in the season and everyone wondered why Tatar wasn't called up?  I think stuff like this has something to do with it.  It speaks to his maturity or lack of.  I'm not saying he has to be a choir boy, but it's just not the "Red Wing Way".  Most people making a six figure salary and can afford to live there, probably aren't guys in their early 20's. throwing loud parties.  Not to mention, he's put Helm in a bad spot, as the owner or original lease. 




#2501958 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Howard has to play better than this.  Yes, the defense is bad but those were both makeable saves.




#2501294 3/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

Sorry, that one was on Howard.  The original shot wasn't that good, he should have covered it up.  As usual, he overplays, gets himself out of position and the rebound is buried.

He does.

The Wings are in this race because Franzen came out of the Olympic break rested and not hurt from playing in Sochi and lead the Wings.

Good thing this game is over.




#2498987 3/22 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2

Howard just does not look confident out there.  Even when he makes the save, he looks unsure of himself.

I hate Parise, but I wish we had him
