he got stuck playing with cleary because he was terrible for 15 games, not because there is a cosmic conspiracy. demoting a player to a lower line with crappy linemates is one of the few things that can be done to try and send a message to a player. i expect him to be fired up about the 25 million dollar contract he signed and i expect him to be fired up to play with great players on a team with a great history. he shouldnt need anymore motivation. but watching him out on the ice it seesm rather apparent he does...

He got a few opportunities to play with real linemates early in the season. Since then, he hasn't had much to speak of consistently. He's on the ice for maybe 30 or 40 seconds and then he's yanked. What do you expect? You want him to just jump up and make Cleary and Samuelsson useful? Crosby couldn't make those guys noticeable. And it doesnt matter. When we get healthy, he's going right back to where he was. I'm not happy he's not producing, but people act like he's the worst player in hockey and his career is over. That's just absurd. Anyone who honestly thinks that needs to stop watching sports, let alone hockey.


#2463375 Why does this team sleepwalk against bottom feeders?

In this league, you defend leads by extending leads. Far too often, the offense gets a goal or two and then goes to sleep. They are simply incapable of extending leads. You will be come back on when you sit back with a lead most of the time. That's just the way hockey works.

Is it mental frailty?  Or maybe they just aren't that good. 
 
Considering the veterans we have on this team and the demeanor they try to portray I have a hard time believing that they get out of sync mentally or lose focus.  I really think the team just isn't that good.  We've been on the decline ever since losing in '09, but we have yet to really rebuild.  It caught up to us a while ago, Holland for what ever reason just doesn't want to pull the trigger though. 

You don't own a 2-1 record against Boston and beat Colorado 4-2 in their own barn and be "just not that good". Keep in mind that none of DeKeyser, Zetterberg or Helm played tonight. This is not an organizational failure. Tonight had nothing to do with the makeup of the team. Tonight was about the guys on the ice not getting the job done and blowing another lead. Don't try and sell me on the notion that tonight was a result of a deep, irreversible organizational blunder. The guys on the ice just lost the game. It's that simple.

I still can't figure out how a team that was playing so well just a week and a half ago is now so aggressively terrible.

It's to the point where the games aren't even worth watching past the second period.

Was our last OT win Weiss' winner against Carolina?

Apparently Brunner scored 2 goals. If he can heat up again, so can Weiss!

Right?

Not according to joesuff.

Wow, weiss took a shot, for some reason i was way too excited about it.

It's a step in the right direction.

Wow, should be 2-0 right now.

I'm with you here. I love him with Pav. Bert is actually useful and despite what most of LGW thinks, I believe he makes us better.

He brings an underrated physical presence, above-average hands around the net and doesn't take anyone's BS. I love having him. He doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank, but he's pretty useful regardless.

Dan Cleary is the only Red Wing with a goal tonight. Against Florida. Just get off the ice, guys.

Nice ! Whipping boy Nr 1 ! 

No, that would be Weiss, at the moment.


#2461963 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 07 December 2013 - 06:10 PM

Franzen, as he has never been able to do, will not carry his recent play throughout this whole season. Anyone who thinks he will is eating too much cornbread. He's going to be 34 in a few weeks and still under contract for six more years. Down the road, when he starts to show age, do you really want him taking a spot from Jarnkrok or possibly Mantha?

If we win again, I'm gonna need you to keep predicting this.


He did.
Then corrected himself right after.

I thought that's what he said! Hopefully he has actual cause to use it in that way tonight :P
