#2364315 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 March 2013 - 03:12 PM

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....

Cleary with ANOTHER bonehead play....




#2362589 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Kings 2

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!

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...

What Ed should have said was: "Carcillo should be more careful when throwing a body check, he needs to pick his spots and pick them well because he has to know if someone sees him coming, they are going to try to get out of the way, which could result in Carcillo flying over Nail's shoulder and smacking his head or hurting his neck. And that's what could have happened here...."

 

The straw that broke it for me is when he said that Yakapov should get a penalty for ducking out of the way....what an idiot.

Ok, so now avoiding a hit should be illegal according to Edzo? What was Doc's reaction to this statement I wonder? I would hope it was like, huh? WTF are you talking about?




#2361781 Hudler/Brunner

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 February 2013 - 10:49 PM

Hudler has no one to blame other than himself in my opinion.

 

He seemed to figure the NHL out in the 07-08 and 08-09 seasons. Then he went to Russia and the rest is history....

 

I don't know....I think Hudler could blame me a little bit! :P




#2361526 Brunner Equals Clutch/Work on Signing *merged

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 February 2013 - 01:32 PM

He'll get a 1 year around $2M....why? Because Holland will tell the agent "lets see what he does over an 82 game season and then we'll talk long term..."

 

Brunner has never played more than a 50 game season and it would be a big gamble to reward someone a large contract based on playing 48 games in the NHL...I know it's been done, and it just may happen, but I think they will agree on a raise for a year, then if he does net 40+ goals, go from there...

 

then again, you can flip the coin and Holland may want to give him a contract for about 4 years at a modest raise of around $3M-$4M, then if Brunner does put up 40 goals or more, he has him for a nice discount....




#2361278 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 February 2013 - 06:51 PM

Last nights whining from Canucks fans has inspired a new GDT for me.

 

Hockeytown0001 already does a fantastic job with them here so mine won't be necessary, but here is the header, which I'll add the rosters/stats and standings to.

:lol: Quincey with that hairdo looks like Patrick Dempsey... oh Dr. McDreamy!




#2361198 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 February 2013 - 03:42 PM

My bet is that if Holland adds a dman at the deadline, Kindl will be part of the package that goes in return. Kinda like Pushor in the Mironov deal, and Kuznetson in the Schneider deal.



 

I don't know. It would make sense. Lashoff can't go back to GR without hitting waivers starting next season, and if they wanted to give him a 2 way deal they wouldn't have given him 3 years.

KuznetsoV, but who is keeping track! :P

 

I would like that too...Maybe Quincey and Kindl in a package? :ninja:




#2361179 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 February 2013 - 03:15 PM

Not shocked by this at all! He was given the chance and took it! Way to go Brian, hold on tight!

 

 

 

Kindl's future? Just what I have been saying...trade bait. Won't get too much in return, but if someone offers a 3rd rounder, I'll take it!




#2360923 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 February 2013 - 09:23 PM

WTF is all this 2.0 bull? Can't a player be a player? Brunner is Brunner...period. He has 10 goals in 19 games, which would equate to apprx. 42 goals over an entire season. He is/was a great find and we have Stacy Roest to thank for him, not Andersson, not Holland.  He should be re-signed, he should get about $2M and he should be our best scorer since Hossa. He has proven he can play in the NHL and deserves to stay. No way Holland lets this guy walk, he didn't cost him an asset or a draft pick. He is found money basically.  But in no way is he anyone 2.0...he is Damien Brunner and he has arrived in the NHL...Thank you Stacy.
