#2542614 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by rick zombo on 20 October 2014 - 12:56 PM

Surprise, surprise.

 

Two of our top four forwards are out with injuries.  Who could have predicted this?  

 

Who could have predicted your post? Predictable.   :lol:

 

Anyway, Datsyuk plays tomorrow. So really only one of out top four is out with an injury.

If there are any Wings fans in the Washington, D.C. area you're more than welcome to join me and some buddies at the Ivy and Coney bar in Shaw for the game.  It's a Detroit and Chicago themed bar that serves coneys and local beer.  Half of the place is garbage.  I'll let you decide which. 




#2540671 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 October 2014 - 04:28 PM

I'd like to see Meyers swapped for Quincey and Kindl.

 

Id like to see Cleary and Weiss shipped for Crosby and Malkin




#2539651 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by rick zombo on 10 October 2014 - 12:15 AM

People are saying the wings will have a great year AFTER ONE GAME? Really? Please look at these last few years. The wins always start good then they get broken down and we know how things go from there.


It was a great game and smith looked good(like I've been saying for a year now) as well as the rest of the kids.

Hopefully Franzen stays in his beast mode while dat is out. Cause we all know that 40 game stretch of floating Franzen will happen.

Also find it funny people complaining about Abby in top line and he gets the first goal lol. Holland pleeeeease find a top line winger pleeeeease I beg of you!!!!!

 

You’ve been the one eager to point out that they were going to have a bad year based on ZERO games. So, whatever.

#2539101 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Echolalia on 08 October 2014 - 02:59 PM

Just give Weiss a chance I really don't get it. Guy was brought here for a reason for that money. I loved him in Florida you can't tell me he can't play anymore/lost all his talent. Give him a couple good linemates and he will produce. I would put money on it

 

I'm sure that's the eventual plan, but I think right now the big thing is getting him back to game form.  He's been off the ice for the greater part of two years, and now that's he's ready to come back, its with a team/system/coach that he hasn't really had an opportunity to play with at 100%.  He had a hop in his step during the preseason that was absent all last year, and he was looking to get involved more, but Weiss' timing was way off.  He wasn't completing passes well, he didn't seem in synch with his line-mates, or the game overall, for that matter.  I don't know what Babcock and co are thinking with benching him because I obviously don't have access to the practices or lockerroom, but I have to imagine that they want him to get back up to speed, and comfortable with the pace and the way the Wings play before giving him time on the top 6, against other team's top players.  I suspect this process will take a few weeks.

I love his combination of speed, low center of gravity and balance. He's like a hockey version of Maradona ;) hard to knock off the puck.

He's reminding me more and more of Zetterberg

Welcome to LGW, where everything is blown way out of proportion!...




#2533265 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Echolalia on 29 July 2014 - 09:01 AM

Two things I noticed when I watched that video that Hockeytown posted:
1) Almost all of Tatar's goals came within 6 feet of the net. Tatar may have Hudler's size, but he has Helm's heart.
2) Several of those goals came in the third period, during a tie game or the Wings down by a goal. I wasn't sure whether there was any statistical significance so I rewatched the vid and came up with these numbers:
Tatar scored 4 first period goals, 7 second period goals, and 8 third period goals. This is especially impressive because the Wings only scored 8 third period goals all year (joke). Anyway, of those 8 goals in the third, the Wings were down or tied in 6 of those occasions (more specifically meaning his goal either tied the game or put the Wings in the lead. The one exception was when the Wings were down 3-1 to the Habs, when Tatar scored to make it 3-2. Then again to make it 3-3. I originally wasnt going to include the first goal, but because he scored the second one to tie it as well I decided to keep it in.) I didn't do any actual statistical analyses so take what you want from these values, but at the very least there may to be a trend that this kid gets better as the game progresses. I don't know how to statistically analyze "clutchness", or more specifically what the actual definition of clutch is. Scoring anytime in the third? Last 10 minutes? Down by 1? By 2? Anyway, someone with a better grasp of stats and clutchness can tackle this one.


#2533257 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 July 2014 - 08:18 AM

ok, ok, no more Diesel... :lol:
 
I said its too much so he better get 20-30 goals to prove he is worth it. If he never gets 20 then its way over payment. Closer to 30 and he is worth it for sure! In the end I am glad he is still a Red Wing! Go Tatar!


So 30 goal scorers make less than $3million? I understand the sentiment but your argument is invalid. If he scores 20 goals he is worth the contract. If he scores 30 he is performing way higher than his contract.


#2532754 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by Seraph on 21 July 2014 - 10:42 PM

I've noticed it's the people in the suburbs who are usually pessimistic about downtown. I've been living here the past two years and it has been a blast. No one here is "waiting for a revival." It's already pretty awesome. I have no doubt these plans will make it better.

 

Here is the view from my apartment and you can see the lots along Woodward where the stadium will stand. You can see the FOX theater sign for a point of reference. I'll post more pictures once they start construction.

#2529467 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by nawein on 02 July 2014 - 12:41 PM

Give me a break. The only reason we even squeezed into the playoffs is because we were in a weak eastern conference. If we had been in the west, we would have been right down there with the Oilers (who are a much funner team to watch).


Funner is not a word. And I'll take making the playoffs over being more fun to watch any day.
