Important if you are great at home and suck on the road.

#2265289 Justin Abdelkader: A fighter's courage, but no fighter's skill

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 01 March 2012 - 01:38 AM

The Red Wings have enough offensive ability in their top 3 lines to dress a fighter every night. Everyone keeps saying (Babs included) that a fighter is useless since all they do is eat up minutes and take penalties. Yeah, they do that. They also (if they can hit, which most of the time they can) keep the other team's stars and ass-clowns looking over their shoulder and hopefully distracts them from what they do best (score goals and run around being ass-clowns).

This team can support a legit enforcer (i.e. Parros, McGrattan, Kocur, etc) that is expected to keep the peace and lay on the occasional big hit, and possibly find a niche in the Red Wing' style of play as a net front presence (replacing Homer eventually). A power-forward that is a good fighter and scorer (i.e. Lucic) is rare and can't really be pursued since they are high value to their current team. Which is why a 3rd line player on a non-playoff team (Moen) commands a high price or isn't on the block at all.

#2262941 Ericsson out One Month

Are people more in favor of Kindl or Commodore?


And, since Ericsson doesn't want to fight/stick up for teammates, maybe he will.

I want Chris Neil on the Wings right NOW.

Haha, Datsyuk... How the hell do you not have a favorite player growing up? He must not have had a TV :-/.

They probably don't receive our signals on his home planet.

#2248073 No suspension for Zetterberg

If he gets suspended for a completely accidental play then it's horses***...let's see Z get suspended for something like this when Datsyuk couldve gotten his knee blown out on a knee on knee hit earlier in the game and there was no call at all. This was nothing more than 2 minutes from behind, no intent, not even a (real) physical force induced.

Accidental or not, an injury occurred. I am pretty sure Z is going to be suspended because the league has to be consistent and this type of play has been brought up for suspension already this season (can't remember specifics, someone else might). Since he doesn't have a history of suspensions, I think that the only reason this goes past a one game suspension is that an injury occurred that could have been worse.

Just ran across this, not sure if it has been posted up here yet but I thought it was both funny and dumb.

#2239478 Commodore

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 28 December 2011 - 06:52 AM

He is the closest thing we have to an enforcer. A defensive defenseman who is at least mostly responsible in his own zone and can and will drop the gloves and can fight well is a luxury that the Wings have seldom had this millennium.

#2237025 Is Minnesota for real?

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 18 December 2011 - 10:57 AM

Minnesota has historically been good defensively and most of that has been with great goaltending tandems. This year they have a few more offensive weapons available and it shows with their record.

Both of those things combined with consistent play at home and on the road will lead to points. The main test will come after the AS game and trade deadline during the final stretch to the playoffs when everyone has settled their lineups. If they can continue with their consistency then they can make the playoffs. After that, like every other team, it will be up to goaltending and depth in the lineup.

Ryan based on age alone.

#2229283 Wings reassign Brendan Smith to Grand Rapids, recall Brunnstrom

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 24 November 2011 - 04:07 AM

Why does everyone want to waive Commodore? I don't get it. Seems like we need some physicality since we are being pushed around in every game and Smith is not the person to provide that. Commodore may be.

Commodore hasn't played enough to warrant this kind of attitude. Smith has had a shot to impress, and he hasn't. He'll get more shots but right now Commodore is healthy and should be given a chance to contribute. The same goes for Mursak.
