#2506777 A plea to Holland.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 April 2014 - 09:28 PM

"Fresh young blood" to replace guys like Kindl and Lashoff who are stale and old? And what if we bring someone else up and they don't solve all of the problems immediately? Forgive me if I'm not in a real hurry to bring inexperienced young players up this close to playoffs.
Also, is Kindl hate a thing now? I thought we liked him


As we've found out this year, our players in the minors have been held back too long.  If not for injuries, guys like Sheahan and Jurco would have been in GR all year, while Bertuzzi, Sammy and Cleary would be playing.  Holland doesn't have a clue.  


I wouldn't be surprised if one of our young D-men in the minors is better than some of the garbage playing on the top squad.

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 04 April 2014 - 01:35 PM

does it? really? this is what a classic let down game is in the websters dictionary? can we get a reference please 


Just looked it up see number 6 specifically



[let-doun] Show IPA
1.   a decrease in volume, force, energy, etc.: a letdown in sales; a general letdown of social barriers.
2.   disillusionment, discouragement, or disappointment: The job was a letdown.
3.   depression; deflation: He felt a terrible letdown at the end of the play.
4.   the accelerated movement of milk into the mammary glands of lactating mammals upon stimulation, as by massage or suckling.
5.  Aeronautics . the descent of an aircraft from a higher to a lower altitude preparatory to making an approach and landing or to making a target run or the like.
6.  game a game where the players from Detroit decide that they will win games on talent alone and not a combination of hustle and talent.  Then decide to play with 10 minutes left in game down  2 goals. Usually occurs after a heroic game/moment but has been seen based on opponents after a west coast road trip.

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

#2502477 Injury Updates

Posted by dirtydangles on 27 March 2014 - 09:34 PM

This whole Weiss situation makes me jealous of the nfl where they can sign contracts with certain guaranteed money and cut players who don't live up to their contract. The guaranteed money gets them to sign the deal even though they know its not certain the deal will last the full term. Weiss has - unluckily - been a disaster this year and may never be the same player again after this injury - here's to 4 more years of injuries.

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

goalie                  [ 3 years loose in playoff ]




you can see why wings keep loose


come on purchase some defense expert and good goalie

show like real nhl player .....

#2495109 2 points tonight is a must!

Looking at our upcoming schedule I just don't see how this team is going to come out of this month in a playoff position. Chicago, twice against Toronto, Montreal, Columbus, Pittsburgh, 2 against Minny, and Tampa. We have to win 6 of those games to stay in the hunt and I just don't think we have the players to do it against good teams.

If you aren't convinced that Detroit needs a #1 defenseman AND better goaltending next season, then you ain't watching...

#2493782 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by lwing on 09 March 2014 - 01:36 PM

Honestly, I still can't get over how he single handedly contributed with one bone-headed play after another and destroyed our chances in beating Chicago in the playoffs last year. He was the stupidest player, young or old, I had ever seen on the ice in a Wings jersey. A complete moron who earned a benching thirty times over. Whether or not he is suddenly getting a few ounces of grey matter and scoring here and there is irrelevant - he will never be a player of consequence on this team or any other team. 

#2493959 Howard = Average

Posted by roboturner on 09 March 2014 - 08:37 PM

i love how everyone attacks jimmy look at today it was 3-0 i didnt know goalies where suppose to score too its sad we get 7 goals with gus and none with jimmy 

We're not attacking him over today's game. That would be stupid. We're attacking his overall numbers for the whole season. They aren't good.


I understand the want to look at each goal against individually and say "That one was tipped, not his fault." or "Not getting any help from the defense, not his fault." and in some instances that true, not all of the goals he gives up are his fault.


But at some point you have to look at his overall numbers and realized he's just not getting it done.


When he signed his new contract he was paid as a Top 10 NHL Goalie.  Most of his stats currently rank him in the 30-40s, not Top 10. The guys record is 13-25 (Don't be fooled by the W-L-OL stat. A win is a win and a loss is a loss!). THIRTEEN AND TWENTY-FIVE!!! That's not the kind of record and not the kind of stats you want out of your Top 10 Starting Goalie. If it was one or the other that was bad and the other was reasonable, that might be more acceptable, but as it currently stands its just not good enough. The Team is already struggling enough as it is, we don't need a shaky goalie w/ confidence issues added to it.

#2493114 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Posted by darkmanx on 08 March 2014 - 08:48 AM

Howard gives up 3 last night, one of which was a terrible unlucky bounce and another a complete defensive breakdown, and gets crucified by the fans after the game. The next night Gus gives up 4 and looks shakier than Howard yet the offense bails him out with 7 goals and not a peep about his less than stellar game. More proof that Wings fans will never be happy with a goaltender and will always be wanting "the next one" instead of the current one.


Are we basing this off one game ? Howard has sucked almost all year, Gus has won us some big games.
