#2506728 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 April 2014 - 08:51 PM

great third by the Wings, only to be let down by their below average goalies again. D sucks, we all know that, but when Howard and Gus cannot control rebounds, its all on them. Wings had all the momentum, Gus lost this game.

 

btw, where has Franzen been? Trade him.

we need a goalie we can rely on. We can score all we want, but when a goalie gives up two goals on 2 shots to deflate our team, its pathetic.

 

ya monster, make some saves now. How about when we were tied....

you're witnessing what an elite goalie can do. We need that type of goalie. Gustavsson nor Howard are the answer. Wings need to lure Ryan Miller home.




#2506233 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 April 2014 - 05:44 PM

this kid was a tryout walk on at Michigan his freshman year. By time he was a junior he was captain of that team. He was basically the same thing here. A walk on tryout and he earned himself into an important role in this team. He probably won't become captain, but by time his career is over he most definitely will be wearing an A a few times.

This thread should be called"Crosby mistakes linesman for opposing player."




#2504122 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by LeftWinger on 31 March 2014 - 11:24 AM

...of all the prospects we have traded over the past for positions we NEEDED, please someone, name me ONE in the last 22 seasons that we really REALLY regret trading...please entertain us.




#2504109 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by LeftWinger on 31 March 2014 - 10:46 AM

can we put this debate to bed? We needed a center, Jarnkrok wasn't going to be recalled to be that center.  The Wings brass know who they have in the system and who they can live without.  The need was for a top line D man, but everyone wanted Mantha.  Holland said, no to every offer out there. Holland needed a center with NHL experience and one that could help us get into the playoffs. Jarnkrok was needed to get an experienced center with some skill.  Legwand has 11 points in 14 games, that's 64 points over an 82 game period.  Everyone plays a bad game here and there, or makes bad plays, its not like he floats around most of season like someone else we know.  Besides, Jarnkrok wasn't going to be here until two more season anyhow, and I have a hard time seeing him get 60+ points here in Detroit.  Legwand was a great pickup and he along with the kids are the reason we are still in the playoffs today.  Jarnkrok would still be in GR.  Hey, we could have always sold the entire farm including Mantha for Kesler...or we could have just relied on Emmerton and Ferraro to help us to the playoffs. I say good for Holland on this one. I am always critical of Holland, but I do give he credit when its due.

 

Legwand was pricey (because we were desperate) but he is paying dividends.  He will re-sign a 3 year deal and continue to be that bridge while our other kids gain more experience.

#2501721 Upcoming UFAs, RFAs

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 March 2014 - 09:40 AM

You had me until Cleary...

 

You let ALL UFA's go except Legwand (and $5.5M is too much) and possibly Alfie.

 

You resign ALL RFA's (obviously) and then trade players accordingly to fit your needs. You left out Almqvist, he needs to be re-signed and then packaged in a trade IMO.

 

I think Mrazek needs one more full year in GR to grow.  I look to signing Tomas Vokoun to push Ugh harder because Monster and Mrazek haven't done that enough this season.  Mrazek just with his inexperience and Monster, well, he gets injured too often.

#2500323 Franzen calls out team

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 March 2014 - 05:57 AM

still waiting for Franzen to come back to us, this Franzine guy who has been playing the last couple of weeks is hot garbage.

time for Howard to prove to us he is above average.
