#2554114 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 05 December 2014 - 04:28 PM

What were they expecting to accomplish here? I feel like anyone with a brain would realize that this wasn't exactly going to placate the fans.


#2554113 Once again The D is awesome

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 05 December 2014 - 04:27 PM

That short bit about Weiss saying someone left a note on his car is extremely cool to me. I felt pretty bad for the guy, not being able to play the game he loves for so long and probably getting a lot of flak to boot.

Anyway cool for Detroit. It's nice to know that we're not the only ones who think we're a sweet sports city!

Long season.


I agree, but it's just blatant negativity to assume that a team so low in the standings, let alone losing 4-2, will be higher seeded than us. Not to mention we're 20 games into the season. I don't mind people being "realistic", but that was obvious pessimism.

I know Kindl has some points, but man has he looked bad to me.

I find it crazy how many people love these lines. My first thought was how awful they look... I'm not worried though, if they last the game first period, I would be surprised...


My thoughts as well. I don't mind these lines to start but I hope they're changed fairly quickly if they don't work out.


#2551417 Lucic tasting some knuckles...

Bruins suck. I hope they fade out quickly when Chara retires. Feel bad for Bergeron and Krecji that they have to play with that team of dingus's

Exactly how I feel. I'm a big fan of Bergeron, but have lost a lot of love for Chara. Never liked Lucic, guy is an ape on skates. Don't like how he plays, speaks, or even celebrates goals. Downright asshat.

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

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 21 November 2014 - 07:15 PM

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.


#2547540 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

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.

We like our team

I can see Cleary now


#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?!
