#2542487 10/18 GDT - Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 1 (OT)

Posted by LeftWinger on Today, 12:26 PM

another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...

Another soliddddddddddd game by Glendenning.
Anyone else willing to admit babs was right about that little spark plug?

And please.
No jokes or puns because I used the word plug.
Because dude is legit one of the best fourth line centers around.

the thing about glenny is, its not Babcock who was right about him. He was a walk on at Michigan and played his way to being Captain of that team, to playing his way on to the Wings. Its Glenny who is right about himself. Hard Work and Heart can make up for a lot of things. Babcock had no choice but to keep him.

reminds me a bit of the dramatic OT win against st louis when Steve slaped it top shelf!

no comparison...great goal by Z, but clearly your memory of Yzermans goal is losing it's luster.

this settles it...Weiss has officially taken up residency in the Legwand/Modano/Commodore dog house. I almost cannot wait for Babcock to leave...

ya, just like the city developed the old Tiger Stadium land... They'll knock it down and it will remain a vacant lot for years.

I won't miss Babcock.

I don't usually defend Big E, but to me it looked like he did all he could do by taking away the pass for the easy slam dunk from Kesler. What I am not sure if I saw or not is if Jimmy tried to poke check the puck off Getzlaf's stick.  E had the pass and had to allowed the goalie to take the shooter (like a two on one.) Francine had his man all the way to the net.  Getz was close enough, I believe that Jimmy could have poked at the puck and knocked it free.  Other than that, it was a perfect shot from a great player who gets paid to score those perfect goals.  I would have been more upset if it was a 4th line grinder that burned Jimmy, but its hard to stop Getzlaf in a situation like that, just as it would be hard to stop Pav or Hank in that same situation.  When you get paid $7m+ you have to score goals like that, it had to be perfectly placed and it was...most other players either put it right into Jimmy or sail it over the net.  Again, if E runs at Getz, then Kesler has a slam dunk...E did what he could have, IMO.

didn't watch but the last 5-6 mins...how'd the guys look? The Z line looked good from what I did see, even Francine. From the sounds of it on here, Howard blew...go figure.




#2538610 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 October 2014 - 05:48 PM

Exactly! What would a package of Weiss and Kindl bring us? If not just some picks.

 

Didn't know Semin was a righty...I still think he would be lights out on Dats wing.  Although $7M is a lot to swallow for Semin..... (what? I surely did not mean it that way!)

What most of us are forgetting is that if not for injuries to Sammy, Cleary and Bertuzzi last season, we'd wouldnt have seen what Tatar, Sheahan and Jurco could do because of the type of coach Babcock is...imagine this, playing all last season with those three instead of the kids...ugh...now lets go with the same defenseman this year? You got to go with the best and waive the rest...

Mike Babcock - "Even though Kindl is the worst player in the NHL, and we couldn't even trade him for a used tampon, he is going to get his minutes, there is no prospect going to come in and take his job. He's not just a plug..."

 

 

 

ok, so I paraphrased...

regarding Helm....you guys all laughed at me when I stated last season that a trainer in the staff behind the scenes had told a guy I work with that he plays pick up hockey with(ya ya, I know how that sounds) that he is a wuss and will sit with a hang nail. We are seeing it again. This guy is made of balsa wood and he should have been traded over the summer...of course teams also probably knows he is a wuss...
