#2461877 Dodger Stadium Game Jerseys

Getzlaf's terrible 'stache makes the whole thing even worse.


#2461876 12/7 GDT: Panthers 2 at Red Wings 1

I never predict scores, but I can see Weiss tallying a goal and an assist tonight. I'd love to see him get THAT game under his belt. And, on another note, am I the only one who thought Ken Daniels said Weiss' name after Tatar's goal last night? Or am I just going nuts?

I was saying it was good luck and do it again, not chastising you.

Oh! My bad, didn't realize, Lol. In that case, the Wings will never score another goal for the rest of time.

Hi guys and girls, just tuned in. How is it going so far ?

Awful. They haven't done one thing right thus far. Possession's not there. Defense sucks. It's like the third period against Philly never ended.


#2461278 Luke Schenn`s dangerous hit on Justin Abdelkader

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 05 December 2013 - 01:31 PM

I didn't like the hit when I saw it and I still don't. Schenn should be disciplined for it. Luckily, Abby seems to be alright after it.


#2461275 Darren Helm Injured

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 05 December 2013 - 01:27 PM

I saw something about him getting hurt last night but he finished the game, if I recall. I'm hoping this is just precautionary. The injury bug is murdering this roster.

Thanks, Jimmy. Thanks for pissing away yet another lead. I've wasted so much time defending that guy it makes me sick.


#2460322 Zetterberg out at least 2 weeks with herniated disc

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 03 December 2013 - 11:25 AM

It's the end of Z for at least two weeks. This is ridiculous. We finally find a groove and everyone and their grandmother starts popping up on the injury list.

Herniated disc, according to Ken Holland. Big, big, BIG trouble.

I really dont feel like we played all that well tonight at all. Boston on wednesday scares me.
Starting monster in net and having pasha back will make me feel like weve got a fighting chance.

As bad as everyone likes to say that it is, we have already proven that we can beat Boston.

I really want to see Weiss score and get going. He's so close to it.


#2457654 What Does This Team Need More/Most?

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 24 November 2013 - 02:00 PM

So many requests for things that aren't available. We have no cap space and no spots on the roster. Everything was sunny after the Carolina game and now the franchise is falling apart again, huh?

Name me 5 LEGIT top-4, puck-moving defensemen or power-forward type scorers that are available right now. Why is that so difficult? Because those players just don't become available anymore. Teams hang onto them like their lives depend on it.

The fixes have to come from in-house or they won't come at all. With that in mind, here it is:

1. Get reasonably healthy

We can't wait for DeKeyser to return to start winning again. Get Alfie back and start scoring goals again. Get the plugs off of the power-play and start shooting when you have a lane. Far too passive and inconsistent.

2. Find some consistency on defense

Find a way to bury the crap and let the cream rise to the top. Limit Quincey and Kindl's minutes and let Smith continue to play well with more minutes. You have to work around them in the lineup, unfortunately.

3. Stop finding ways to lose

This is the biggest elephant in the room. The team consistently finds ways to lose. Whether it's not enough offense, defensive mistakes, shoddy goaltending performances or a lack of a physical response, the Wings are always finding ways to lose games.

4. Waive Cleary and Quincey

I can't overstate how much better this team would be without these two in the lineup. Without even adding anyone to the roster, this team gets a little faster, more dangerous offensively, turns the puck over less and makes less mistakes in their own end. We have the organizational depth at defenseman to fill Quincey's roster spot. No one could possibly be any worse than he has been since being acquired. Same goes for Cleary. Anyone would really be better. Give the meatheads of LGW that actually think the biggest problem with this team is fighting majors Tootoo back, for all I care. Just get these two out of the lineup.

There are no top-4 defensemen or scoring power forwards waiting for us anytime soon. And even if there were, we have no room in any sense to accommodate them. If we really are as bad as everyone says, how have we managed to win 10 games? The team is slumping, not bad. Everyone slumps. I'm as frustrated with it as anyone else but the organization is not on the verge of collapse.


#2457644 What is Samuelsson's role?

Posted by DatsyukToZetterberg on 24 November 2013 - 01:31 PM

I will say this: he's better than Dan Cleary. He's a decent bottom-6 offensive option at this point. However, not great. Yes, he put up 30 in Vancouver.

Playing with the Sedins.

He could have a role with this team but he just doesn't play it. He's not producing a whole lot despite being somewhat healthy this year (knock on wood). He's not close to the biggest of our problems, but he certainly isn't a large part of the solution, either.

Wasnt able to watch tonight due to work.  How did the team look?  Howie? and better yet....Nyquist?  True he scored in the first 20 seconds?  If so...eat that holland...not a kids game pffff.

Howie was a last-minute pull for the flu. Nyquist scored twice and, overall, brought a ton of speed and energy.

I don't like the way he celebrated. Escort Mr. Nyquist back to his cell.

He wants to celebrate? He can go play with Yakupov in Edmonton.
