Hudler 2.0?


Funny stuff.


(until he goes on a scoring slump and we all blame his nightlife)

#2501650 Callahan called up from GR.....

Posted by rick zombo on 26 March 2014 - 01:06 PM

Rick, big difference here. bert is done. toast, finished, career over. Callahan is just beginning. maybe he becomes something, maybe not. we don't know. But he needs to play so we can find out. There are many reasons why he was a step slow. unfamiliar, nerves, told to focus on skating, etc....... I still think he is a 4th line checking guy, which is fine. maybe adds 10-15 goals per year. Great!


That’s my point. Hard to nitpick Callahan’s 5 minutes of ice time when Todd BerTANIC is floating around out there like no one told him he already sank many years ago. 


I’d take Callahan at this point. I know Babcock likes his “big bodies” but Bert took a stupid careless penalty just because he refuses to keep his goddamn stick on the ice with TWO HANDS all the time. Plus he turned the puck over at least 6 times. 

#2500623 Injury Updates

god damn how bad does that knee fluid drain **** hurt? Sounds just horrible lol. The things Cleary put his body through for this team. just remember that (not saying I want him back this year lol)


The fluid drain hurts but it’s not unbearable.


Respect the Cleary past. Hardcore. Put him in a suit and make him an assistant to Draper or Fischer next year.


I’d kiss the guy if I ever saw him, but only after he retires. Anything short of that gets a punch.

Someone should give Mitch a quick run down of Blake Comeau's behaviour last game against the Wings.

#2500401 Callahan called up from GR.....

Unfortunately Ferraro proved why he had not been called up yet. While we have had numerous great storylines of young kids taking their piece of the pie, Ferraro was not one of them. Nor was Pulkinen fro that matter (but this is his first yr in NA and he is a scorer who needs minutes, whole different scenario). Heres to hoping Callahan plays with a burr in his saddle and makes some noise. 


Sheahan, Nyquist, and Tatar grabbed all their piece of the pie after being invited to dinner three times. All three have played in games dating back to the 11-12 season. In fact, only Jurco really made his case with his first shot this year.


Although I don't have high hopes for him, this was only Ferraro's first shot. Just thought I'd point that out.

#2499586 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

i think the wings will show up tonight.
3-2 Wild final score.

Hopefully you won't show up tonight

If Jurco does go right back to GR, how do you think management will assess his performance?  When will he be back?


Management will assess his performance like this:  “we have a future top 6 winger on our hands"


But they’ll leave him in GRs next year because they can. And it’s what they do. They usually max out all of each players minor league options until they have no choice but to make them NHLers for life.. i.e. Tatar and Nyquist


It’s proven, despite heavy criticism here on LGWs by all us Armchair GMs,  to be a good plan.

Get f***ed refs.


Minny have been running Howard all game.


Then you make that terriblele POS PS call. 


Then you call back a Wings goal for Mule brushing against the rookie and barely affect the play?


Eat a pile of s***.

Legwand’s really solid for us out there tonight.


I mean, it’s not the epic 0G, 1A performance that Jarnkrok had for Nashville last night, but it’s good that Detroit can get even a little return on such a lopsided trade.

Well that should settle Smith on the PP argument.  :w00t:

WTF are we arguing about here?

Quincey vs Smith?

We're doing this?

#2498646 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by rick zombo on 21 March 2014 - 11:58 AM


I'd honestly like to see Z-Dats-Jurco.  He's a big strong kid, and he's really good on the boards.  Plus, Nyquist-Sheahan-Tatar are murdering it. 


And he'd make that top line quicker as well.


But OMFG will he go stand in front of the GOALIE!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????


'Cuz if not, better resign Bert. 'Cuz we won a bunch of games that time Homer stood in front of the net back in 2008.

I like Dats, Weiss, Sheahan, and Helm as our four centers.  But I don't like Legwand on the wing.  He doesn't shoot much, and hasn't played there too often.  I'd rather we go get an actual winger, I hate this team's insistence on lining up centers at the wing.  It's no wonder we have such a hard time scoring goals.  But that's just me.  And hopefully having Tatar, Nyquist, and Jurco on the wings moving forward will help.


True true.


I've watched the Wings play so much over the last three years that I forgot that centers are supposed to pass and wingers are supposed to shoot and crash the boards.

Sheesh if Leggy only got him in the thigh I wished he would have speared him in the Vienna sausage. cashew


We're talking Malkin here.
