#2638321 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 20 November 2015 - 11:46 AM

This has to be a troll post. How does Sheahan get an A? And please do explain how Hank has lost his heart and soul.

Smith and morrissey

The Smiths are getting back together with Morrissey?!? Sweet.

What is wrong with this scenario is that the Isles aren't reallly getting a quality replacement for Hamonic RIGHT NOW... and that's what they want/need.

Kenny doesn't go for players like Hamonic.

He has family Western Canada and wants to be close for personal reasons. A real GM like Nill or Yzerman would use pure willpower to induce a tectonic shift of the earth's crust, capable of moving the Pacific coast closer to Michigan. Holland sux.

It's this kind of "do what I want" thinking that we need more of in Detroit. Holland plays by the rules too much. The laws of physics were meant to be broken Kenny.

#2638214 Who and What are the Detroit Red Wings?

You shouldn't be expecting this team to be seriously contending for a Stanley Cup at this point. Our next wave of elite talent is being developed, once Larkin and co. are in their prime I will be concerned if we're not one of the very best teams in the league. Until then we still have a shot, like most teams in the league. I think everybody in the organization still strives to be the very best that they can but they're more focused on the future

Guys who played less than Glendening tonight: AA, Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen. We need to stop taking penalties, so that guy gets off the ice.


Mrazek was great again, so was Larkin. We gotta figure out how to generate more offense...

#2637766 The suprising rise of Jakub Kindl

Posted by number9 on 18 November 2015 - 12:16 AM

Youre not wrong, brah. No worries.

But to get back on topic, Kindl is a good offensive defenseman. He just needs a lot of work in his own end and needs to play with some grit. He's got the size.


That could be said of a number of our players bruh. You remind me quite a bit of a past member here that went by the name of Hillbilly, he did well here and so will you bruh.

Smith is a good hockey player. If the coach cant figure out how to use 6'2", 210 lbs of fast and agressive, then that's a shame.


Ah yes, It must be those dumb coaches Babcock and Blashill that can't figure out how to stop Smith from skating around like a chicken with its head cut off. It's certainly not Smith's fault.

All bs and jokes aside on hating Smith.


The guy just makes way too many dumb mistakes to not go noticed. Hence it's easy to make fun of him and call him out.


Like Zombo and Joe said earlier. Other D-men make tons of mistakes too, but they usually have an upside that they bring MOST of the time (unlike Smith who has some good plays but a lot more of bad plays). Green is more good than bad. DK has been good in terms of his track record. Lately he's been meh. Hence he gets the benefit of the doubt. Kronwall has arguably been the best D-man since Lidstrom left - although he is also not doing so hot this year. So he too gets the benefit of the doubt. 


Quincey used to get s*** on for the longest time. Up until last year when him and Dekeyser proved to be our best defensive minded defensive pairing. 


Even Kindl has been proving that a coaching change was all he needed to bring in the confidence and do better. He's been our best offensive D-man as of late.


If Smith could somehow have a consistent breakout performance, I guarantee you people would appreciate him a lot more. 


I remember I was probably one of the biggest Howard haters out there. Up until his 2013 performance the last 10 games or so to get into the playoffs. Even now I'm not Howie's biggest fan, but I'll always respect that performance. 


Same applies to Chris Osgood and his 2008/09 performance. He really got a boost from me late in his career. (I absolutely hated him in the mid 90's he was really really inconsistent.)

That's a bold statement.


No, this is a bold statement

LGW, where people complain about people not complaining about something

Green has been our most consistent defensemen all year and also had two assists last night. His play on the puck wasn't that bad even, Bobby Ryan made a great move and that's what great players do. He Deked out three red wings remember

I do complain about Dekeseyer, he can't pass the puck at all, still great in his own zone

Smith can't score and that's what his game is tailored to to. Look at Jakub, he's in the lineup because his offensive skills outweigh his defensive lapses. Smith is just a lot of lapses
