#2592605 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by rick zombo on 12 April 2015 - 01:49 AM

Success overall. Failure for a lot of individuals. 
 
Quincey - lived up fairly well to his contract that pissed a lot of us off. 
Smith - fail
Tatar/Nyquist - success
Abby - success
Sheahan - sucess
Weiss - sucks to be him, fail in babs eyes
Jurco - fail
Ericsson - fail
Datsyuk - success, but injuries dont look good, starting to remind me of Steve Yzerman's knee issues. 
Zetterberg - fail (I love Z but this was by far one of his worst seasons in point production. He knows it and so do we). I expect him to have a breakout season next year tho. He's had crappy seasons in the past and responded with successful seasons after.   
Howard - success then fail
Mrazek - success (gained a lot of experience)
 
Overall - 100 points, into the playoffs? Success. The team effort balanced out in the end. Young players have progressed well and certain players have proven they shouldnt be on the roster.


Zetterberg.
Leads team in points. 2014-15.
Is healthy for almost a full season. 77 games played.
When asked by reporters last night to respond to 'genius-best-coach-ever' coach's comments about "not thinking the team was a playoff team" back on July 5th said, with a grin, "you should have asked me because I thought we were a playoff team back in July"

Yep. Complete fail. What a loser.

I think big E needs to go

 

I agree with this Sooooooooooo much!

 

Ericsson just needs to be used properly. As in: on the 3rd pairing.

Mickey ripping on Toronto fans for booing Phanuef: “What’s wrong with those people? They need to grow up"

 

:lol:




#2592074 Redwings recall Marchenko

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2015 - 02:04 PM

Babcock mentioned that some guys are playing hurt. I doubt Marchenko replaces Smith.




#2592038 Team next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2015 - 11:51 AM

 

I don't see it happening unless the Leafs change their demands

 

He's gone from Toronto. 100%. The only issue is that some other team may shed some salary and out-bid the Wings.

 

But my impression from the deadline was that there just wasn't enough time to work out a deal of this magnitude.

Maybe just let the puck fall into the bench then and not let any of this BS happen in the first place? Maybe Brendan? Maybe?

 

That puck was never falling into the bench. That's why it was a penalty.




#2591998 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2015 - 10:08 AM

The problem is that Mrazek has not been by far the most consistent one. He can't seem to string together two good games.

Lately it seems like neither one wants the starting job.

 

Behind this D? Who could blame them. :lol:

yeah but even still...How many times has a penalty been called on a play like that...Especially when they really couldn't see if it went over the line of the bench or not. And to wait that long just to get baby therrien a chance to complain before they even called it?

 

especially to make it a 5-on-3 in the third period in a game that had massive playoff implications for one team.




#2591982 Brendan Smith

Posted by rick zombo on 10 April 2015 - 09:25 AM

Brendan smith doesn't have a longterm future in detroit especially with marchenko ouellet jensen sproul waiting to get a shot

He could very possibly be dealt to toronto this off season in a deal for Phaneuf ... Just watching yesterday's hockeycentral and there saying Phaneuf wanted to be a wing and was feeling like s*** when he wasn't dealt to the wings on deadline day

Anyway you look at it smith will be gone in 1-2 yrs

 

The problem is that, when they were prospects,  we were looking at Smith (and Kindl) with the same wide-eyed reverence that we now place on these other prospects you mentioned. No one knows if any of these four players will be good enough to take Smith's job.

Hudler just finished off the Kings with the empty net goal.

I feel the people that are positive all the time and "actually know what they're talking about" are just old people that don't really care about the Wings anymore.

 

That’s like saying that all the negative posters are spoiled, entitled, Millennials. 

 

I doubt either statements are true. 




#2591814 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by rick zombo on 09 April 2015 - 10:01 PM

 

100 %  110%

 

 

This is hockey, after all.

Officially too late to tank it.

If Boston and Detroit both lose tonight, what does that mean? Who holds the tiebreaker if Boston wins Saturday and Detroit doesn’t. They’d be tied in ROWs.
