#2175189 Hudler's Future

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 May 2011 - 03:28 PM

I cannot comment of this topic because of my (well known) hatred for Hudler, I will just say I wish him a good future, just not as a Detroit Red Wings forward...

...I do get a chuckle at how many people have turned against Hudler, when it was but last summer that I amassed more than -95 user rating while I was expressing my views on him. Oh well, he could've proven his negative critics wrong, but failed to and actually amassed a lot more negative critics. Listening to 97.1 today, I couldn't believe all the folks calling in saying how its over for Hudler... To quote James Brown, "I feel Good!"

I do agree Holland doesn't have to balls to make a big trade. The problem is, and the worst thing that could've happened was the Wings forcing a game seven. Now Holland is looking at it like, if we only had Franzen, if only Pav and Zetts were 100%, if Bert and Cleary didn't get hurt, blah blah blah! Thats all good, but in the end its gonna end up seeing the Wings ice the same team next year with the exception of Modano and possibly Salei... HE needs to get rid of Hudler, Ericsson, & Salei. Osgood and Modo should retire. Try to get Nabokov to push Howard to the next level, because right now Howard knows there really isn't a ligit back-up and his job is safe. Bring in Nabby for the back-up and if Howard doesn't improve even more next season, Nabby could come in and take that job. Lidstrom? Who knows about him, I just hope he decides before July 1st...

Holland please ditch Hudler! IF there was a trade on the table for him and Ericsson (it may have to be sweetened now) then do it. On the open market Ericsson will probably get 3-4 million, but he is not worth the huge cap hit here. Especially after this season and playoff...

4 power plays, 2 shots... Babcock made some bad line choices ZDH is no longer any good... I dont get his coaching decisions. I feel sorry that the greatest American born player had to finish his career riding the pine....that is the reason he wasnt re-signed in Dallas. He wasnt the best anymore, but he was better than Hudler and should've have been in every game instead of Hudler.

So what does an Orca have to do with the Canucks? Just because you may see some whales in the ocean? We got fish in the Detroit River, but I don't see people carrying around Carp Stuffies...

NHL can make another History Doesn't Surrender commercial !! Only thing that I can wish for is for Thornton to get Kronwalled!

Maybe Thornton should take a car ride with Heatly.....ouch, that was uncalled for...forgive me...

#2170939 Wings Have A GREAT Chance To Win Tonight...

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 May 2011 - 03:29 PM

1. Nick Lidstrom is playing some of his best playoff hockey

1a. Jimmy Howard

2. The Likes of Lidstrom, Draper and Holmstrom are 4 time Stanley Cup Champs and WILL NOT bow out without giving 200%

3. The Sharks don't seem to have an answer for Helm

4. Jiri Hudler is NOT playing (:lol: sorry had to sneak that one in!)

5. Mike Modano has something to prove and will give his all

6. Franzen is sitting, he is no good to us at 20%

7. We have the best coach in the NHL

8. No Ryan Clowe

9. Joe Thornton, he embarrassed himself, his team and the league by what he did, the Dive Team is now on the Radar of the NHL!

10. Pavel Datsyuk is tied for second in scoring with Ryan Clowe, who did I mention, is OUT. And with Kesler idle, Pav more than likely will be leading the league after game 7.

11. Henrik gets better and better every game he plays.

12. It appears the Nick Kronwall that we all know and love is back, scoring goals and taking heads off.

13. CONFIDENCE, CONFIDENCE, CONFIDENCE

14. EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE

15. They are the Detroit Red Wings, it's what they do!



They can't win every year, but this team has been the Benchmark of the NHL since 1990-91 and we as fans are privileged to have been a part of this roller coaster ride!

The idiots on the sharks HF boards are starting to think they're going to lose the series. I find that hilarious.

I still dont think we'll win but now I think it's going 7. I would love to just KILL the sharks in game 6 by 3-4 goals and really get some pressure on them.

NEGATIVE! Keep it close, don't embarrass them. Don't give them any fuel to injure our players. They have already shown they cry like babies and want to pull hair and slap after they lose. Reminds me of the Ducks of 2008. Glad to see a diving penalty tonight!

#2168366 Clowe suckering Abdelkader

Posted by LeftWinger on 07 May 2011 - 12:18 PM

Well, Clowe sure got his money 's worth for only a double minor. He wished it was Kronwall? Why because he his upset that Kronner LEGALLY destroyed "The Murderer"? I say put a nice cross check to Clowe's throat if the game gets out of hand, or how about a home-run swing to the back of his neck? Or a butt end to his face? Sucker punch? No, but it was his intent to goon it up and he did FIGHT. Dropping gloves and landing punches is not roughing, it's fighting. Just another example of the refs not having the BALLS to make the right call and the NHL not having the BALLS to impose the correct discipline. Same Malkin, the refs made the right call, THEN rescinded the call so the NHL would not have to suspend him. I have no doubt that a call was made by the NHL to rescind the instigator. Whatever, it's all under the bridge, but it goes to show how inconsistent the officiating is in the NHL...

Hey Clowe, how about you line up across from me for one face off? I ain't gonna fight you, but my Aluminum stick will look great up side yourf****** fat head!

Hey ***** Heatly, you still cry-babying over a clean hit? By the way Danny Snyder says hi... :ranting:

Every time Lidstrom looks over at Ericsson, he must be making up his mind to retire quickly.

nah....Lids will just tell Holland, if you want me back, DO NOT re-sign Ericsson....

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 May 2011 - 07:20 AM

...do you mean to tell me that Modano is NOT playing tonight? Ok, Babcock, this is getting ridiculous! Team playing like s***, certain guys don't even look like NHL players (no need to mention names) and there will be NO lineup changes? No substitution to try to spark this team? Nothing? Zero? Uh.....maybe McCrimmon isn't the only problem...


#2167033 mccrimmon

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 May 2011 - 04:53 PM

We havent had a good defense since Barry Smith left. Even when we won the Cup in 08, our defense was suspect, but ever since McCrimmmon has been here...... :puke:


#2166734 WCSF Game 3 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 May 2011 - 07:23 AM


I thought Flip and Huds looked pretty good out there tonight at both ends of the ice. Franzen's defensive laziness directly led to the OT goal.

Howard's poor positioning was the cause of another goal; the "broken stick goal" that went on the far side. Had Howard managed to not slide five feet past where he should have been, that doesn't go in.

The first goal was a result of Brad Stuart chasing after the puck in the corner as it went to a Shark player Niklas Kronwall was already covering. Critical mistake on the PK, and one that led to a goal.

On Boyle's goal, Helm is caught standing around watching four Red Wings battle three Sharks deep in the Wings zone. Boyle slips in behind Helm and takes a feed, beating a desperately sprawling Howard. Howard is also to blame, as he basically resorted to the technique of "flail wildly and hope I stop it" on that goal, when he could normally have stopped it.

You never cease to amaze me...

In your eyes, Hudler never looks bad. Face it, he stinks, and I am so glad everyday more and more people are seeing it. Hopefully Holland see's it now. Trade him for whatever you can get...

Howards poor positioning? I am far from a huge Howard fan, but on the goal you speak of, if Setaguchi gets all of the puck Howard makes the save. As a goalie you can't assume the puck is going to come at you at 10 MPH, it's like a batter waiting for a fastball and then swinging way to early on a change up and looking like he is swatting at flies. When you are expecting 100 MPH and get 10 MPH, you kinda look silly, but Howard played that play perfectly from a technical standpoint.

On Boyles goal, unless that puck hits Howard, there was no way he was going to stop it. Unless it hits them, NO goalie can stop a wrister above their glove. You can research every goalie ever to play the game and they have ALL given up goals top shelf above the glove. Either it hits them or its in... Besides, Howard DID get a piece of it, so it did hit him but just not enough...

Your crush on Hudler and Filppula disturbs us, maybe Holland should trade them to you? I am 99% sure they will both be on the roster next season, and that is way too unfortunate because they are a waster of nearly $6M in cap.

Posted by LeftWinger on 04 May 2011 - 10:33 PM

Well, you think Modano will get a start next game? LOL

Nope, just like JR said last year, Babcock hates Americans. Who was pulled tonight? Miller, Draper was put in. :ninja:

Modano better be in next game!


First change that needs to be made, FIRE McCRIMMMON!!!!!!
