#2564655 1/18 GDT : Sabres 4 at Red Wings 6 (Z w/Hat Trick)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 18 January 2015 - 10:39 PM

The only person I would pick MAYBE as a captain over Zetterberg is Jonathan Toews.

And here I thought I was done throwing up after yesterday.

But nope. That right there did the trick.

#2465567 Why the Red Wings get injured

Posted by CMatt89 on 17 December 2013 - 04:07 PM

I'd rather see Franzen knee someone in the head, then throw a fit when someone touches glove to his face. Do enforcers prevent injuries? No, but they prevent reoccurring instances where the entire team gets bullied, thus leading to injuries. Enforcers are the street justice of the hockey world. The "police" (refs) aren't doing an adequate job for the most part in supporting player safety, so that's where the thugs come in. Is it really that hard to acquire someone that can fight AND play hockey? Probably not..



Edit: Having players with multiple roles seems to be non existent. 

#2464834 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 1 Discussion (12/14)

Posted by roboturner on 15 December 2013 - 03:54 PM

I'll let Jimmy answer that:



haha Thanks!


The segment with Helm, Abs, Quincey and Smith was one of the most fakest things I've seen on TV. Really? A conversation about Datsyuk? God try to be more original. Obviously it was a set-up conversation. Probably HBO camera guys fed up of not getting crap for coverage and told em to talk about Datsyuk or something. The Alfredsson segment was much better. He was very natural and so were his kids (little goofballs) that's the kind of stuff you want to see. Not fake conversations for the cameras...

I doubt HBO actually suggested it, but it did seem forced and unnatural. Like they were thinking "Oh s*** they're filming us, we need something to talk about!"

He called out Babcock publicly when he was made a healthy scratch, he's rumored to be a bad teammate and he hasn't played a game in a long time now.


White is gone this off-season. 

#2414083 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by joesuffP on 28 May 2013 - 04:04 PM

I think Quincey has been great. All of our defenseman have stepped up aside from smith.

The pressure is really getting to him he looks so nervous and uncomfortable I don't think it's good for his development to be playing in a top 4 role. I honestly feel bad for him but he's making us lose so I'm starting to resent him

Zetterberg's slapshot is pretty good.

#2409037 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 21 May 2013 - 06:32 PM

Im not phazed a bit. I love how this guy thinks he's the hockey authority. The funny thing is that there are way more than 3 shots. I can think of a lot of different ones:

1) slap shot (MacInnis)
2) wrist shot (Yzerman)
3) backhand shot (Zetterberg)
4) dangle shot (Datsyuk)
5) snap shot (Messier) 
6) half slap shot (Robitaille)
7) bat shot (Gretzky)
8) redirect shot (Holmstrom)
9) pass shot (Lidstrom)
10) chop shot [backhanded slapper] (Lemieux)


hahahahaha this cannot be real.  I'll go ahead and say 4 shots and separate the snap and wrist even though they are very similar.

So you get 1,2,3, and 5. 

4 = deke (not a shot)

6 = slap shot

7 = ?? baseball? I'm not quite sure

8 = tip (not a shot)

9 = pass

10 = still a backhand, but i could see allowing that one to be loosely called a different shot

Posted by St. Michael (the Red Wing) on 19 May 2013 - 07:37 PM

Zetterberg is now a playmaker BUT can still shoot the puck.


He's an elite player STILL in the NHL even if he is aging and with back problems.


And I'm happy he is our captain.



#2407308 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 19 May 2013 - 07:22 PM


He is young and has made mistakes.  I just wouldn't count him out that's all.


I actually don't think the next captain is currently on the roster or in the Wings system. 


Who knows?  Maybe the 2013 NHL draft will place somebody in the Red Wings hands.

@CraigCustance any chance at a possible Karlsson-like miracle return to the playoffs?

.@RyanWalker78 When I asked if playoff return possible, he smiled and said 'maybe.' He's definitely not ruling it out.

#2405816 Babs confident Datsyuk will stay

Posted by evilzyme on 16 May 2013 - 11:02 AM

Holland didn't believe Nick was going to retire when he did either. 


I really don't remember that being the case this past summer. The previous summers when he started the 1 year deals, Holland was pretty spot on with each one. This last summer, most of them didn't say anything except they felt he could play a few more years but ultimately the decision lays in his hands. I'm not even sure why many are trying to compare Lidstrom's retirement at 42 to Datsyuk at the age of 36. 

#2407147 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 May 2013 - 03:19 AM

Actually because I completely disagree with you, I'd like you to find some on youtube that were better in AIM than the Zetterberg ones I posted and show us. Prove me wrong. You wont be able to. In fact i just searched "Zetterberg backhand shot" on youtube and found 5 videos, search "Datsyuk backhand shot" and found only 2. Interesting...


The league as well as color analysts from FSN and NBC have repeatedly said that Zetterberg has one of the best, if not THE BEST backhanded shots in the league. Partly because of his stick which has a very small curve designed for backhanded shots.


The fact that you actually think Datsyuk has the best shot on the team shows how big of a troll you are. Datsyuk ISN'T KNOWN for his shooting. He's known for his stick handling and finesse. He himself has admitted over and over that he doesn't like shooting the puck because he doesn't think its the best part of the game.


So now we have you're opinion vs. NHL, datsyuk himself, youtube videos, and the rest of these people on these forums and other forums.


Get off that Datsyuk bandwagon my friend. It's okay to have favorite players, but taking away credit where it's deserved is just silly.

So now you're changing your opinion? At first you say that Datsyuk has the best shots and accuracy and now your giving the "slapper to Z" Go watch the videos I posted again. Listen to what Larry Murphy said "Nobody with a better backhand than Henrik Zetterberg" I think Murphy has more of a legitimate argument than a hockey fan. End of discussion.



the axe is silent when he is wrong, but in a month he will post a thread called Z has the best slapshot/backand in the league when it conveniences him...

#2405743 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 May 2013 - 11:36 PM

Slapper I give to Z.

Backhander no way. Z may have put more in that way, but that doesnt make his better. Pasha is #1 in shootout % all time. It isnt because he can only use his forehand.


Datsyuk is more slick with the puck, and has dirty moves, and has a good backhander. Those are one on one, most of his goals are nice wrister and not too often back handers. Z can pick corners and snipe from the circles with his backhand, he has a wicked backhander, much better and more accurate from far away than Pasha, but he doesn't have the moves  or hands that Pasha does, no one can stick handle like the magician. 

#2403778 Which team had/has a stronger forecheck Anaheim or Chicago?

Posted by Crymson on 13 May 2013 - 02:54 AM

Scoring zero goals in a seven-game playoff series is not the best follow-up to signing a massive contract.

#2404077 Captain Z

Posted by Crymson on 13 May 2013 - 05:47 PM

Z needs to stop flopping. Last night, the Ducks announcers were commenting on the antics of Howard and Z. I didnt like it cuz it was true. The Wings might need some theatrics to keep up with todays NHL standards, but I hate to think of us diving like the Sharks and Canucks. Bad Z. You be a good Z!


The FSN Pacific announce team is populated by homers. I have never seen Zetterberg dive.
