#2448678 Lines Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 29 October 2013 - 01:54 PM

Lines in today's practice:

 

Zetterberg  Datsyuk  Bertuzzi

Cleary  Weiss  Alfredsson

Tatar  Andersson  Abdelkader

Miller  Glendening  Eaves

 

Cleary got promoted. Obviously that's been our problem. Not enough top six minutes for Cleary.

Gotta get one early on this kid before he thinks he's a goalie. 




#2447163 Edler Suspension Aftermath.

These are my least favourite types of hits.

 

Take the friggin body. No more of these fly by shoulder glances to the head. It's a stupid play.




#2447057 Ericsson out 2-3 weeks

Posted by rick zombo on 22 October 2013 - 12:02 PM

"@HeleneStJames: #RedWings D Jonathan Ericsson out 2-3 weeks with shoulder injury. Got hurt in PHX, had MRI late Monday after attending birth of baby girl."

 

Man, that Phoenix game was 3 days ago, and it continues to suck.




#2447048 Ericsson out 2-3 weeks

Posted by rick zombo on 22 October 2013 - 11:38 AM

Kronwall will be back. He and DeKeyser should form an able first pairing. Hopefully Smith will be paired with Ouellet.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Lashoff - Kindl

Smith - Ouellet

 

Ideal.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Quincey - Kindl

Smith - Ouellet

 

Acceptable

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Lashoff - Kindl

Smith - Quincey

 

Reality. Unfortunately.

 

I can't see them sitting Lashoff (and certainly not Quincey) to play Ouellet. :confused:




#2446980 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by rick zombo on 21 October 2013 - 10:58 PM

He's going to be a good one.

Professor Xavier is looking good. 




#2446737 Trade Proposal

Posted by rick zombo on 21 October 2013 - 05:24 PM

Anyone else hate the idea of trading Tootoo to Montreal or Toronto?


#2446638 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by rick zombo on 21 October 2013 - 11:53 AM

So what happens if  when Ouellet looks better than Smith tonight?

 

:lol:




#2446626 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by rick zombo on 21 October 2013 - 11:14 AM

This could get hairy... with Tatar with Weiss and Cleary, we must be splitting up Pav and Z again ( :(). With a thin blue line against a thus-far dominant Sharks team, splitting up the Eurotwins probably has just as much to do with shutting down the opposition as it does with trying to get our own thus-far disappointing offense going.

 

On a side note: Wouldn't it be great if we had a 2nd line center who could actually get some production out of their match-up without having Pav or Z shouldering the load every single night, every single season? Weiss has unfortunately made both Franzen and Bertuzzi look way better by comparison this season. At least he is still centering the 3rd line, instead of getting to ride shotgun and get comfortable when he can't make his own hay, ala Filppula.

 

Pretty sure the lines are:

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdlekader

Bertuzzi - Franzen - Alfredsson

Tatar - Weiss - Cleary

Miller - Andersson - Tootoo (with the possibility of Samuelsson playing)




#2446619 Any new Helm Updates?

Posted by rick zombo on 21 October 2013 - 10:50 AM

The Habs have guys dropping like flies right now.

 

Prust (out 4 weeks)

Pacioretty (out 3)

Brierre (concussion)

 

They could use a big, hard shooting , Stanley Cup winning, PP point specialist.

 

Right? RIGHT?




#2445857 The Daniel Alfredsson Appreciation Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 18 October 2013 - 12:28 PM

 

Are you basing that on last night's game where they were playing without their #1 D-man for most of it? 

 

Don't get me wrong the defense is young and a little shaky so far 8 games in, but right now the Wings are 5th in the league in GAA.  If everyone is healthy this defense could be pretty solid by the end of the season.  The real problems come if Ericsson or Kronwall get injured (like now). 

 

We'll learn a lot about this defense in the coming weeks until Kronwall is back.

 

Don't worry, he's probably not basing his comment on anything.




#2445826 Kronwall Injury Update

Posted by rick zombo on 18 October 2013 - 09:48 AM

 This is the disrespectful clown from the last time we met in the playoffs. I believe we remember this http://www.youtube.c...h?v=KMUo8EDcpyE

 

I think its about time that we have Mr. Tootoo pencil Mr. McLeod in for a clock cleaning in Detroit on March 6th. Maybe invite a full house to witness it too.

 

The house will be full.

 

#5's going up.
