#2585735 3/26 GDT: Sharks 6 at Red Wings 4

Posted by LeftWinger on Yesterday, 09:07 PM

We need Dats and Cole back. We need Weiss to play all the time. Helm needs to go back to the 4th line. Pulkkamania needs to be in the top 6. Best players play, right Babcock?

3 goals on 9 shots is the problem.

 

lol, time out Detroit? Babcock pretending to coach? Watch, he'll put Helm and Andersson out there

Weiss scores! Time to put him back in the press box.

of course ultimately the person to blame is Babcock. He keeps playing Howard and he has some f***ed up line combos. I know the last two we've had more injuries than before, but even before that he baffles me...jurco is not a checker, Andersson is not a scorer, Weiss needs to play. Pulkkinen is not a 4th liner...

Oh my god, how is this game on howard?! Goals 1 & 3 he had no chance... sure the 2nd one he probably wants to have back... What can you do.

if any of you guys missed this post, don't worry, just go back to every GDT that Howard has played in that game and its the same post for every goal he gives up...seems that every goal he gives up, someone says he had no chance. No offense to you Hockeytown19, its just were sick of excuses for Howard. Not that you're making up excuses, but its always the same thing when someone tries to defend Howard.

You have impeccable timing with Howard. Did you say anything when he kept them in the game on Sunday?

really? Did you not just see that? Jimmy cannot make the big save when its important. When's the last time Arz scored 3 goals? All a team has to do to cure their scoring woes is play against Howard. He was the reason they even had to go to OT Sunday...he couldn't stop a beach ball when it is important!

leave it to Howard to give up more goals than Arizona has been averaging...2nd goal was af****** disgrace. What's his GAA now, 7.00?

Jurco=V.Leino

 

No, Jurco just isn't being used properly.  He is NOT a 4th line checker...




#2583690 The Futures of Tatar & Nyquist

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 March 2015 - 12:06 PM

I would say that I think Detroit will not be in that same situation is because Ken Holland will not let his salary cap get out of control again.  Hudler left them once before for more money (to the KHL(which really soured me on him)) and then he was looking for top dollar again when he signed in Calgary. (by this time everyone wanted him gone so it was no big loss) So he was just looking for the biggest payday he could find.  When Filppula left, the going rate for a 2nd line center was through the roof and Holland's plan for the rest of the team (I believe that was the same year he went balls out for Suter) didn't have any room left under the cap for that going rate.  Holland will not let the cap control him again, he will contiue to grow his own talent, pay them accordingly and if the time comes where they are just looking for the payday and they no longer fit in the team cap structure, that is when he will lose them.

 

BUT, by the time Nyquist, Tatar, Mantha and Larkin are all in their primes here, we will no longer have to contracts of Dats, Z, Weiss and Franzen. Plus the hopes that the Cap increases slightly every year will also help.  By the time Ouellet, Sproul, Marchenko, Dekeyser are all in their prime, Kronner, Ericsson will be gone off the books or on their last small career contracts.  Same goes for Mrazek, by the time he is ready for that elilte contract, s*** stain's contract will be off the books.  I know Mrazek is a RFA soon, but I think he still has that one bridge contract he'll sign before his big one.

 

Holland has enough young talent spread apart from each other to where he probably won't have to worry too much about having 5-6 stars making top dollar all at the same time.

 

IMO, there are only two scenarios where he may lose ANY of his "kids." 1. They just don't want to be here, or 2. He trades them.  Like I said, the reason's Hudler and Fil left were more to do with wanting (some say deserving) more money than Holland had available without crippling his team.  Kenny will not let his cap get that close again.

Wait, What? Our top pair d-men are bad? Well according to Babcock, Ericsson is our top line pairing guy.  Guess we cannot argue that then, can we? IMO, neither Ericsson nor Kronwall are legit top pairing guys.  Kronwall has no balls anymore, he needs to go back to being the Kronwaller than makes him effective, not this soft piece of jelly donut he has turned into.  Ericsson is, will and never was a top pairing  guy, it is still of my opinion, he could disappear today and Marchenko could step right into the lineup and Ericsson would not even be missed.  But I digress, because Babcock is "The Man" with the best hockey knowledge out there and knows how to put lines together in order to guarantee the best results! Sure had to love that Tatar-Andersson- Pukkinen line the last couple of games, what an insult to Tats and Pulkks...
