#2638165 11/18 GDT : Washington Capitals at Red Wings, 8:00 EST

Posted by rick zombo on 19 November 2015 - 12:08 AM

For those of you complaining about Datsyuk and Zetterberg starting OT. Remember, 3-on-3 is as much about possession as it is speed. Those guys are pretty good at keep away. But they had off nights. But so did most of the forwards except Helm and Sheahan and you're sure as s*** not going to start them in OT.

I thought Helm had his best game in a year.

I'm also mad at Pulkkinen for not doing the only thing he's supposed to be good at on that breakaway. Although he had Holtby beat.

I also want to bitchslap the snot out of Tatar. It's games like this that make me want to trade his ass for Blake Wheeler.

Well, you can't take penalties all game long and expect to win.  Also, 3 on 3 is stupid.  It's not hockey.  It's garbage.  We traded a breakaway competition for a 2 on 1 competition and think it's better.  Stupid.   

It is stupid. I think it is less stupid than the shootout, though.

You are gasping and reaching now. Smith is good. If the Wings dont give him monutes, another team will. We have looked like hell 5 on 5 since we took him out. I think you are the one who picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.


For those wondering, I suspect this is a huge reason why Smith gets bashed more than, say, Big E. A number of posters claim "Smith is good" despite evidence and the opinion of coaches (past and present).


The truth of it is, Smith was good (in college and the AHL) but hasn't been consistently good in the NHL. To claim that he is "good" now is preposterous. The experts don't agree with you nor do facts and his body of work in the NHL.


P.S. Substitute "Jurco" for "Smith" and the message remains the same.

Babcock ruined this kid and Blashill's trying to put him back together.

#2637766 The suprising rise of Jakub Kindl

Posted by number9 on 18 November 2015 - 12:16 AM

Youre not wrong, brah. No worries.

But to get back on topic, Kindl is a good offensive defenseman. He just needs a lot of work in his own end and needs to play with some grit. He's got the size.


That could be said of a number of our players bruh. You remind me quite a bit of a past member here that went by the name of Hillbilly, he did well here and so will you bruh.

Here's our 5on5 CF% for the past 14 games. Things are obviously trending up. There's no question there was an adjustment period to get used to Blashill's system. Players are starting to figure it out and we're only going to continue to improve.

9, nope....I was referring to next season's roster, my bad.  I'd like to see a deal made before the off season, but I have a feeling, IF Holland wants Byf, he will have to pursue him UFA...IF he is still a UFA come July.




When it comes to Buff, it's a fun talking point, but deep down you have to know there's pretty much zero chance he ever comes here. He's everything the RedWings management is not.

LGW, where people complain about people not complaining about something

Green has been our most consistent defensemen all year and also had two assists last night. His play on the puck wasn't that bad even, Bobby Ryan made a great move and that's what great players do. He Deked out three red wings remember

I do complain about Dekeseyer, he can't pass the puck at all, still great in his own zone

Smith can't score and that's what his game is tailored to to. Look at Jakub, he's in the lineup because his offensive skills outweigh his defensive lapses. Smith is just a lot of lapses

I really haven't liked E too much, and the facts you bring up now makes me dislike him more. Unfortunately I don't think Holland will trade him.


I've said it many times before I believe that E, K and Smith are very replaceable within our system.  It is nice to see K doing bettter under Blashill, and maybe if Holland moves E and Smith, Kindl can slot in #6 even next season...and his cap hit is good.


I am most disapointed in Smith.  I remember, back when Suter got P-Whipped into going to Minny, I remember predicting (or maybe hoping because I felt dissed) that Smith will end up better than Suter....what? Ugh! Boy was I wrong.  I had high hopes for him...

it is absolutely the coaching in my opinion. Nelson is a moron. Trying to turn an extremely skilled team into a bunch of goons. In saying that, it is only a matter of time before they start netting a few goals. The whole team have been snake bitten. Mantha in particular has played really well in every game I've seen, he just can't buy a goal right now. I still think this is a playoff team and once they get in, even if it is as a lower seed, they'll be a dangerous team.

Apparently Kindl took Blashill seriously tonight.  6 shots on goal for the Jak.  I thought he and Marchenko looked strong again tonight.  Green too.
