Well, it was an exciting game. I like watching those Wings.

LOL Mrazek has a few rough games after playing Vezina calibre all season and all of a sudden he's total garbage. I understand saying that about Howard because he still can't get it together after 7 years, but Mrazek is in his first full season. I think he deserves more of a chance than that.


A few rough games? I love Mrazek but he was the worst starter in the league for a fairly good stretch. Hell it was enough time for Blashill to gain confidence in Howard.

For crying out loud stop chasing!


That just seems to be how our stupid man to man defensive system is set up. Always be on your man..... but a step behind.

Good job refs, that'll teach them not to start anything, keep the game 5 on 5 and make their actions entirely inconsequential!


#2667341 Mantha

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 12 April 2016 - 05:34 PM

Sorcery!!!

You know what's wierd about the Mantha fans... They don't realize that all of the evidence they provide as to why he should be in the lineup - actually supports a guy like Teemu Pulkinnen even more. But he's 6'5!!! Which is good when you actually hit someone - irrelevant when you don't. If we are in desperate need of a proven AHL goal scorer who's lethal on the PP and afraid to hit someone, what makes Manthas resume better than Teemu's?

Actually, what has Mantha ever done better than Pulkinnen at the AHL/NHL level across the board? Goals? Nope. Assists. Nope. Elite Defensive Play? Nope. Use of size? LOL

#YesWeCandersson


I'd actually say his size was pretty effective along the boards.


#2667266 Mantha

Adding Andersson doesn't suddenly make this team an SC contender. We were better off riding it out with Mantha (like when we were actually winning games), especially giving the limited time everyone has left to play with Datsyuk. Is Andersson a better 4th liner? Maybe. Is that worth it? No.

This line from Holland. Just... wow: http://www.detroitne...yoffs/82866748/
 
 
I don't get the thought process behind saying something like that. At all.


Seems like Holland just does not have faith in younger players. When the team does bad, they're the only ones who ever have to answer whether it's their fault or not.


#2666835 Mantha

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 10 April 2016 - 01:37 PM

Well, I've gotta say I've lost faith in the decision making here. Pp looked good with Mantha and we were winning games, we bench him and now it looks like we'll never win again lol. He could've gotten some valuable playoff experience (with Datsyuk even) but instead we'll have our offensive dynamo Andersson in! Let's just keep bashing our heads against the wall here and expect a different outcome, fun plan.

Edit: also, what's being benched a few games then subsequently demoted right as we make the playoffs supposed to do for his confidence? It honestly seems like all we do lately is break these kids down and build them back up to play average, safe hockey with no creativity.


#2666780 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 10 April 2016 - 10:45 AM

Richards? He's gone after this year and he's not bringing much to the table now

I really thought pavel would stick around one more year and not handcuff us with the 7.5 cap hit .... Now that being said and he's actually leaving I hope we insert mantha back in and let him play with pavel now and learn, I wanted him up a lot sooner to learn from him and hank but now time isn't a luxury

And I hope Blashill wakes the f up and stops playing it safe and realizes if we're gonna make a good run here the kids are gonna have to step it up and that means more ice time and not benching a sniper and playing AA 5 minutes a games and overplaying hank and pav who will only get more tired and not benefit the team the longer the playoffs go for us

It's time for Blashill to trust some of these kids , and if we are gonna have a long run it'll come through mrazek and not Howard


You bring up a pretty good point here. If the organization had this knowledge already I sure wish they would've opted to play some of the promising younger kids with Datsyuk much more often than they did. Makes me even angrier that he's been playing with Helm and Richards.

Wow. Datsyuk will always be my favorite Wing. I don't know what the team is gonna do without him.

OMG HAHAHAHAHA, That is MEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I love you guys so freaking much. I Can't believe it!!!

 

So I was so unbelievably nervous, but I knew I was gonna do it during the end of the anthem. Unfortunately my best friend is also a certified dip s***, so he screwed up the video. (kept hitting the record button thinking it wasn't working.)

Howard with the shutout, crazy how he's taken the net back at this point.

Why Dekeyser at all? He did the same thing everyone does when someone is too close to the goalie. Simmonds is the one who roid raged about it.
