#2649077 Ericsson, our Giant Teddy Bear

E will stand up for teammates though, but he doesn't hurt the team.
If he were to start goonin it up there would be even more outrage that his stupid penalties and lack of control hurt us.

And he usually does play physically in the corners and net front, I wish he'd be more physical but then he'd be hurt more often than he already is, and I for one don't want him to be completely useless the remainder of his contract. Even though he has the potential to be better than he plays (more often than not) he still is a solid top4 shutdown dman and losing him would hurt more than it would help, imo.

I feel like Ryan Reynolds IS deadpool.

I haven't had this much fun watching trailers since the Terminator Salvation trailer with The Day the Whole World Went Away.

Hopefully Deadpool is better than Terminator Salvation :/

Terminator salvation was almost as bad as green lantern. Ha.


#2648343 Predict The Red Wings' 20+ goal scorers for '15-'16

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 16 January 2016 - 11:53 PM

So a fourth line of Jurco Glendenning Pulkkinen, or Andy Glendenning Pulkkinen...
I'm hoping for the former.


#2648328 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

After he got hurt and our penalty kill dropped, anyone who says he isn't important to our team, or that he can be easily replaced needs to have their heads examined.

Dudes a warrior too, I thought he'd be blind after that skate to the face last season.

save some for the playoffs haha ;)

Ha.
Yep, I've got two left...
I'll also have to learn to be much more specific with the wishes.

#2647303 Red Wings at the Halfway Point

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 January 2016 - 04:56 AM

Oh hell yeah kickazz, our defenseman are much more active in the offensive zone then they ever were, and we got burned a lot by it at first, and I'm sure those troubles aren't completely behind us yet, but it is a damn beautiful thing seeing the other defenseman rush up with the forward in the breakouts and sweep down below the circles in the o zone to see the play through.
It throws another body in the mix if their d get the puck down low, so our chances of getting the puck back are higher, and they sweep behind or in front of the net when we still have control and it creates so much chaos for them trying to cover it.
We have a fourth guy in deep with one sweep to get a better chance and they still have speed to get back to the point almost instantly. Last year the only player who could ever gain the offensive zone with control was pav, and when we're clicking well Blashill has everyone doing it, even d-men.
What gets us in trouble is when the d man sweeps down towards the net and he gets interfered with, or engages in a puck battle near the goal and the forward who pulled to the top of the circle behind everyone doesn't recognize the defenseman hasn't looped back up to the point.

But when it clicks, man is it beautiful to watch.


And honestly, I think the richards-larkin-sheahan line has been our best line recently. On hfboards you constantly hear people saying Larkin was racking up the points because he was with zetterberg, but I think larkin is already close to as good as z.
He makes everyone around him better, no matter who he's with. I kept hearing his hockey iq is great but I never really put much stock into it until the Ottawa games where he walked Karlsson and fooled smith both times.
And he does stuff like that all the time, one shift, he'll skate all out up the wing and try to force his way to the net. Then the next time he's in the same spot against the same guy, he steps like he's going to take off but stutters and cuts up high to give whoever with him more time and space to do something once he gives him the puck...
Its Absolutely incredible to watch,


#2647295 Red Wings at the Halfway Point

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 January 2016 - 04:11 AM

I'm happy, I expected a bit better because our forward depth looks amazing on paper, but honestly I'm glad they've already had to fight though a little adversity.
Theyes can definitely be better, but Blashill seems to be doing an okay job, and I think with another few good moves we could step into being a contender as early as next year thanks to the emergence of larkin and mrazek.

And even though Marchenkos doesn't put up a lot of points, he's been a rock on that 3rd pairing with a revolving door of partners.
So happy, but not fully satisfied.
Especially with how some of our other vets have played, but the kids are stepping it up nicely, now they just need to take the next step and lead with the vets while we have em.
