Shake it off Petr, you cannot beat the B's and the refs...even Mick said he smells a PP coming, then tweet!

I don't care what babs thinks, put Weiss in and he gets points... It may not happen, but deserves to be in over Andersson. I understand Andersson's role, but Weiss just gets points.

I'd like to know when wearing a hat was camo for deterring cops from seeing you drive drunk?

They need to get Pulkkimania in the Top 6.  He isn't going to get many shots on goal playing bottom minutes...Maybe Babs will be tweaking lines all night and get him up there sometime in the game.

I may be in the minority, but I think its time for Pav and Erik to suck it up and take a couple of shots and get their ass on the ice tonight! I mean, I get it, injuries need to heal, but if they not on LTIR or even STIR and are always GTD's its time to lead this team by example! A bum knee NEVER stopped Yzerman from playing when it was crunch time, and again, I could be wrong, but this is probably THE most important game of the season, ya?

 

It's just drives me nuts! It seems that players in todays NHL miss WAY too many games due to nagging injuries instead of just "icing" it up and going out there and leading their team, NO, WILLING their team to victory!

 

For pete's sake, even Homer went out there and took his spot in front of the net during the PP's when he couldn't do much else, and more times than not, he scored a goal (or had one taken away) or did his job enough to allow a screened shot to go in.  Buck up guys, they have treatments today that allow you to play pain free...They only need to look across the locker room at Miller for inspiration...not questioning Pav's heart, but something tells me that if he got hit like Drew, we wouldn't see him for at least a month. Same would go for a few other "stars" on our team...

 

 

Anyhow, its nice to see Riley back in...Lets get this done! 2 points in regulation would be awesome!




#2586903 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 March 2015 - 08:41 PM

I admit that clearly Petr is not quite ready to handle a full time #1 job where he can go back to back a play at the same level both games.  It just doesn't mean I think Jimmy is better. Petr is a rookie, whats Jimmy excuse? IMO Petr is better. But after watching today, he clearly isn't ready to take over the #1 legit spot yet, but he is hot on the heels of it!

Ya, its not like GM's go to Gm school to learn the game of hockey, or that they ALL played pro hockey either.  Ken Holland has a greate business mind, and through his years of watching and learning the game from a kid and into his 1 pro game, he has become one of the GM's is all of sports.

 

Just because we are fans, doesn't mean we don't "know" hockey or even "know" hockey talent. Sure we all can't be GM's, but given the chance to learn the business aspect of the position, and with the amount of hockey knowledge that does grace our forum from a lot of our users, I bet someone on here could become a very competitive GM in the hockey world.

I get it now! The Wings have a great record against the West teams, right?  They think that they are still in the West and these East games don't matter as much! 

 

Why haven't any of us figured this out earlier! Sheesh!

So, Sheahan and Cole should be back for Ottawa, right? That should help out!


^^^ This.  How many losing streaks have the Wings ended for their opponents?  :ranting:

 

Law of Averages?

This weekend has been a tale of two teams...I can man up and put this loss on Petr's shoulders for a couple of bad goals.  Had to make that big stop when they made it 2-1...

All goalie issues aside, I truely believe that this team needs upgrades at D.  Ericsson, Smith and Kindl are guys we could trade and not miss.  I truely believe Smith is what he is and will not get any better. Maybe Holland will revisit the whole Phaneuf thing.  I still don't want to give up Larkin or Mantha....the prospects of Hyman wanting to be a UFA puts us in the mix for him, but still, if we could upgrade to Phanuef, re-sign Zitz, maybe just maybe this teams D can be better.  I really believe they over acheived early on and now things just aren't so good. Q hasn't been as bad as I thought, but again, he is just part of the problem. The D needs to get better, the goalies a hell of a lot more consistant. 4 goals should win you games, most nights.

 

Not that this game is over, but I do believe upgrades are needed.

Pretty bad when me as a Mrazek fan even gets blasted on after I say three times now he wasf****** up tonight... he played s***ty tonight. Thats the 4th and last time I am going to say it tonight. Lets hope s***stain can stop the bleeding.




#2586396 Zach Hyman May Seek Free Agency

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 March 2015 - 07:10 AM

I am all for the Wings collecting as many young talented kids as they can.  If these guys DO have that Hull and Oates type chemistry, it would make tons of sense that he would want to become a FA and sign to play with Larkin.  I hear Larkin is thinking about signing a contrat instead of returning to Michigan next season.  That would put both of them together for the next step of their career's.  I am only guessing that Hyman is doing this to play with Larkin, he may just not want to play with Florida.  But I would be very excited to have both of those kids in our organization, along with the talent that is already there.  Larkin, Mantha, AA, Pulkkinen (I know I am missing someone) and then add Hyman to that group...future gets even brighter!
