This team got what they deserved. They got lucky last game after coming out flat, and that s*** ain't gonna happen every game.


I agree that you can definitely only expect so many comeback wins. Someone needs to tell the Lions that too.

Kronwall taking the blame for the second goal, like a leader should, but it was nyquists mishandling.

I actually think it's on both of them. Nyquist was undoubtedly brutal tonight, and shouldn't have given Kronwall that puck, but honestly I still think the turnover was bad too. I expect him to keep that in 9 out of 10 times. That whole top line though has been pretty lackluster lately.

On a better note Tatar is exciting to watch right now. He's all over the place and drawing penalties. I was also real impressed with Oulette's (spelling?) vision on that assist, we don't see that too often from our defenseman anymore.


#2550849 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Cleary had been playing far better than Anderson and Miller. He's definitely showing himself to not be the bottom or second to bottom plug on this team. He was far better than Nestrasil. Nestrasil was easily the worst player on the team.


I'm still not that into Andersson. I like how the 4th line has been playing altogether but every time he gets the puck I just think to myself that he doesn't really do anything well, and while his skating has improved I still think it's below average.


#2550042 Smith and Ericcsson?

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 19 November 2014 - 02:44 PM

Take a bath Nick Foligno...geesh!
 
Seriously though, tough break.  Smith's been looking real good the last five or six games.  Hope it's just a minor setback. 

 
If only Brain McGrattan were the Red Wings GM, am I right?


Agreed, I feel like he's really starting to come into his own and am pretty disappointed he'll be out. Definitely hurts the team at this point in time.

Exciting game. Officiating was terrible both ways. Thought Cleary was surprisingly strong on his skates. Highlight of the game for me was that time someone was bleeding profusely on the ice but there was no penalty, almost like he magically started spurting blood, was crazy.

#2545975 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 01 November 2014 - 03:34 PM

 
Undisputed heavyweight champion last year, great caphit loves the role of the bodyguard and chips in with a few points here and there ? Whats not to like ?

His 8 points in 76 games. This comparison is pointless. One is a 4th line enforcer who just happens to skate around with a stick as a formality, not because anyone expects him to score with it. The other played way, way less games and was injured doing it. I'm obviously not happy with Weiss and his signing either, but hindsight always makes things so clear. If anyone says they predicted his sports hernia surgery and several setbacks I think they're lying. But anyway I really wonder what they'll do. I hope he gets healthy but man this is getting ridiculous.


#2545701 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 31 October 2014 - 03:13 PM

Wait Brian McGrattan has the potential of being a top six center?!?!  No?
 
...oh wait, neither does Stephen Weiss currently.  :ninja:
 
What do Brian McGrattan and Stephen Weiss have in common?  Neither have a chance at cracking the Wings line-up!!!
 
*rimshot*
 
Thank you ladies and germs, I'm here all weak. Try the fried rice.
 
 
yes, i'm aware i spelled week wrong. it's a joke. probably better than the others.


Don't you mean fried Weiss?!


#2545522 10/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 @ Capitals 2

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 30 October 2014 - 12:38 AM

Hey everyone! I'm a long time lurker coming out of the shadows. Strangely enough my first post is to ask if someone can explain what exactly Luke Glendening does to agitate so well? Does he seem to chirp a lot or is it because he's like white on rice against other teams stars? Usually I would just watch the guy but my crazy schedule this year so far has me listening to most of the games on radio and then catching the highlights. Oh yeah and following the GDT helps a lot too. Thanks I've been wondering about this.


I've thought about this and I gotta say I think it's the smile. Any time he does something that irritates a player he smiles at them, which is probably the tipping point to their temper tantrums. I know it'd piss me off lol.

To LeftWinger saying Franzen being back won't make a difference I have to respectfully disagree. I feel like our biggest issue right now is the number of people we have capable of finishing, and despite Franzen's inconsistencies he can really bury the puck given the chance. He may say he's not a scorer, but he has a good shot regardless.

Anyway great game. Loved seeing the boys battle through less than stellar officiating.

#2544859 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 28 October 2014 - 04:50 PM

 
Why not? he has done nothing so far, and hope mantha takes his spot sooner rather than later, or really any of our top prospects


In all fairness Tatar hasn't really done anything either, or Jurco. The team really isn't doing much offensively. With that said I also wouldn't mind seeing Mantha over Nestrasil. Though I don't know if they'd bring Mantha up to play 3rd line.


#2544101 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 23 October 2014 - 10:26 PM

What the f*** just happened? I'll take it and say the hockey Gods are making up for a couple lost points so far this year. Something's got to give with this power play though, they just look so stiff out there compared to other teams.


#2542842 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 21 October 2014 - 01:17 PM

LGW. Glendenning will bury one today.


#2541434 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 15 October 2014 - 11:05 PM

Down 2 - 1? Need some scoring? Demote your current best scorer and replace him with Justin "Scoring Prodigy" Abdelkader!

Where was Jurco in the second half of the 3rd? Did he get injured?
