#2456222 11/21 GDT: Hurricanes 3 at Red Wings 4

Blah. Cleary doesn't know what to do with the perfect Pavs pass in front. Carolina scores craptastic :(


OK, enough is enough.  Cleary needs to be on the bench. How in the world can he be on the same line as Pavs??? He is a liability and has thus far done nothing. Seriously, what does he add?


Once again he is looking over-matched on the ice. I would rather have Miller on that line.


It is soooooo PAINFUL to watch Cleary.

What exactly did Cleary add tonight?


Tatar was one of the best skaters on the ice once again.

#2453664 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

This saddens me.  Tatar had a couple bad plays/turnovers last game, but he also had a ton of energy, skated hard, and created those opportunities for Sammy that have somehow earned him another game.


This is bush, bush league

I am sooooo upset at that Abby penalty at the end... and I think it is all his fault.  I saw him making a move toward net and I was screaming NOOOOOOOOOO!! because I knew he was going to go into the goalie.


We played too well to lose this game.



#2451590 Are we faking injuries/illnesses to deal with the roster crunch?

Asked if he’s feeling better, Franzen said, “No. Not yet.’’

Asked if he’s sick or injured (club is calling it an upper-body injury), Franzen said, “I don’t know.’’


He doesn't know if he's sick or injured... really?

OH, and thank God Cleary is still on the 2nd line...  :nono:

Defense just got better

It will be impossible to judge Weiss correctly from an offensive standpoint as long as Cleary is on his line.

I want this:



Mule-Weiss-Alfie [I still think this line can work eventually... maybe swap Tatar and Mule]

Babcock said Franzen was sick and feeling nauseous, that's why he left after 2 periods.


Was it because it was watching Cleary play?

Great puck possession game only allowing 20 or so shots.


DD is a stud and just keeps getting better. 


We got more shots and Luongo robbed us on a couple.


Abby has to finish that pass from Tatar... he shot it right back into Luongo, just had to elevate it.


Speaking of Tatar, with the exception of one careless turnover down the middle, he played an awesome game. He should never see the bench again. Awesome compete level, likes contact, takes shots, skates... love it.  But the best play I saw, which probably went unnoticed by many was when he was skating up the right boards and Kindl (might have been Smith) drove by him with the puck... he immediately peeled off and went to the point to play defense.  I'd say he's all growns up and knows how to play Babs game and stay in the lineup.


Smith has to stop taking stupid penalties.


Someday we will score more than 2 goals... thanks Howie

Now we just need Stevie

#2447087 Ericsson out 2-3 weeks

Posted by matthewdanna on 22 October 2013 - 01:22 PM

Ericsson will be missed, but is anyone else just absolutely blown away by DeKeyser right now?  The kid hasn't even played half of an NHL season and looks like a top-pairing guy already.  What an incredible signing.


I totally agree.  I think the silver lining in Ericsson being out might be that DD can get some chemistry with Kronner and stay in the top pairing... maybe putting E on the second pairing with Kindl or Q would give us some depth.


I just look at DD and the way he skates and makes decisions with confidence and it makes his signing look like we hit the jackpot. I think someone else posted that he is basically our top 10-15 pick, but we got him without having to draft him.


I love him

Helm already has multiple steals and he has made a couple hits halfway through the 2nd period
