#2364797 This should scare us all......

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 March 2013 - 06:29 PM

...if Cleary is re-signed, frick this team!  Talk about taking up a roster space from someone who deserves it...Holland needs to be fired if he re-signs Cleary....period.


Say goodbye to Dats if Holland does nothing to make this team better and Dats is stuck playing with garbage like Cleary...


$4.5M is fine for Filppula. I don't see why the Wings would say its too much, it's only $1.0M more than his salary is now. In my opinion any lower would be a low-ball.  Flip can get $5M on the market easily...

You mean Jiri 15 points in 17 games now that he is finally getting some ice-time Hudler?


Yes.  Glad he is doing well.  As long as he is doing well somewhere else.  He f***ed the Wings over in 2009 and I have hated him ever since.  This is a team, not an individual.  Holland offered him $3.5M which was way overpayment and he opted for arbitration because he wanted more...then he left for Russia. I have no room on my team for individuals, so long Hudler, I hope you score 50 goals, just don't EVER try to put on the Wings sweater EVER again...

Abby has his place on this team...he has his role...he plays his part very well...he doesn't belong with Datsyuk.  Abby on the 4th line is a valuable member of this team, Abby on the 1st line is deer in headlights.  Cleary on this team period is just asinine....

The unfortunate reality is that by todays standards Perry is a "power forward"...


With that being said - Gerard Gallant in his prime would tear Perry's head off, and **** down his neck.

 This is what I am saying....if Perry is what describes a Power Forward in todays game, so be it, and I already said a million times I want Perry on this team, but when it comes down to definition of a true power forward, Perry is not it.


Last I checked Datsyuk knocked Perry to the ice....

When Bert gets back or if he gets back he should replace Abby immediately. I can't see Tartar going anywhere. He's got a bit of Danny Briere in him. Babcock isn't stupid when Sammy gets back Sammy goes on waivers.


I doubt it.  Besides it's not Babcock that makes that decision...and Holland loves him some Sammy...it is SOP in this organization that as long as the player has options to be sent down, he will. No matter the skill he possesses...when all forwards are healthy, Tatar and Andersson will go back to GR...unless they make it to the time of year when you are allowed to expand your roster. Stupid, yes, but that's Hollands MO.

Hey here's a thought...maybe we are all reading it wrong....maybe Tatar IS in the top 6 and Datsyuk got demoted to the bottom 6....hmmmm.....

Datsyuk should be able to make the players around him better.


Well, I guess, but it seems that Cleary and Abby are just dragging him down.  Maybe if one of them were there Dats could make that one player better, but when both players are clearly in a whole different class than him, Dats can just shake his head when he makes a great play only to have Cleary screw it up or Abby whiff on the shot...

Brunner didn't come from GR either.  In other words, he never had to climb up the hierarchy.  Plus he's not signed either is he?  He gets ice time or potentially walks.




For sure, but my point being Brunner was put there and proved himself worthy...Tatar wouldn't waste to opportunity either.  He is already proving he belongs in the NHL, but if given the same playing time as Franzia, I think he plays just as good as Brunner and renders Franzia useless...which he already is anyway.

#2364489 Leafs Komisarek demands trade. wants to play.

Won't happen....with Detroit and Toronto joining the same division next season, this is the same situation as Columbus refusing to deal with Detroit...



Besides, our guys are gelling right now, pretty well.  Add Danny Dekeyser and our D will rock into next season...I still don't like Q, but that's me, he is at least playing pretty solid right now, I can say the same for Kindl. I know Cola is on the roster next season but put him on waivers after training camp...



Kronwall - Ericsson

Quincey - Smith

Dekeyser - Lashoff

Kindl (Huskins for depth)

If Babcock would put together the correct lines, we wouldn't be debating the Kane shootout (lack of) move(ing.)

yep....blame this lose on a lack of offense.  I blame this on Babcock.

Ironic that a defense which dominated this game are the ones at fault (Ericsson, then Kronwall) to help Chicago extend the streak...


Lets hope for the 2 points....

this was not a badly officiated game. 

penners hit was not a cheapshot it was just a lovetap saying "thank you for your stay in the LA Area". :)



if Number 87 was a Red Wing this game would be 10-2 easily . ;) ;)


Brandon Pettigrew? Nah, he would just drop the puck off his stick....

#2362136 Gus Nyquist...

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 February 2013 - 09:47 PM

Everytime Nyquist is here, Babcock plays him in the bottom 6....much like he is doing with Tatar...I think he should have his shot in the top6 like Brunner has been given, if he still has the same results as he has had in the past, then maybe it's time to move forward without him...but I think given top 6 minutes consistently, he will shine....as would Tatar if Babcock would put him there...


Filppula - Datsyuk - Tatar

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Brunner



Role with it and lets see what plays out!

#2362131 Ed Olczyk, professional broadcaster, professional idiot

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 February 2013 - 09:35 PM


Edzo, you should defend yourself, do you know how many people you could've hurt by falling down and not fighting Probie?


Probert fighting Olczyk is about the equivalent of Carcillo charging at Yakapov...Edzo the idiot.


edit: Don't know why the video doesn't show in the post, I used the link button...sorry...

Steve Yzerman


Nah, Yzerman was 28 when Bowman took over coaching, so I guess it's just between the ages of 26 and 27 when you cannot learn anything new...
