#2591997 4/9/15 GDT Red Wings 3 @ Canadiens 4 *Warning post #888 & 906*

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.

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.

I just got back from having beer with a friend of mine that’s a big Leafs fan. He was pissed that they won tonight.  :lol:

Mrazek cost this team two points today.

Is Ken Daniels honestly talking bad about the Isles recent play? Seriously?

 

What are you doing here anyway? It’s 5-4. You usually don’t swing by until a loss is all but guaranteed.

1. Stay out of the box

2. Get some saves from Howard

3. Right this ship. Not just for this game, but moving forward.

Come Petr, we're rootng for you to make that important save!

 

But not Howard. 




#2586299 3/28 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by rick zombo on 28 March 2015 - 04:43 PM

wrong? Me? NEVER!!!!

 

I’ll ask you the same sort of question I asked SimonSin on page two of this GDT. Would you be sad if Jimmy went on a rampage and took this team deep into the playoffs?  Would you rather be right, or would you rather the team had success regardless of your predictions? Obviously you’d love Howard to terribad himself out of a job and for Mrazek to win the Conn Smyth. Win-win for you. BUT, if you had to chose, what would it be? LeftWinger the prophet, or a deep playoff run?




#2586281 3/28 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 4

Sucks we play tomorrow so Babs probably plays Jimmy. Otherwise I think Mrazek would get the next start. If Jimmy has a good game then we're right back where we started with the goalie controversy

 

I’d be OK with two good games in a row by two different goalies. That being said, I imagine Mrazek will start.
