#2542835 Weiss

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2014 - 01:01 PM

this whole scenario is baffling to me.  Is he injured still? Not at 100%? Is he 100% and just crappy? Does Babs just not like him? I guess none of us will really know the truth, but IMO, he must be just wanting to take it slow in order to NOT re-injure himself again. If not, then you would think he'd be asking for Holland to trade him somewhere he will get to play...I cannot imagine he is just happy collecting a check and riding the press pine...not many NHL players strike me as that type. "Of course I have been known to be wrong....from time to time."

Oh, I appreciate it for sure! And sometimes, no one gets to it, it happens.  I am sure nobody felt disrespected in any way. I do remember a few years back that there were issues with too many people putting up GDT's and that is why it all settled to just a couple of user's doing it.  I am sure you had all good intentions and by no means are you just a no one here.  You are part of this LGW family and we all appreciate yours and everyone's efforts to bring a ton of fun conversations and debates here! Keep doing what you are doing! Like I said, I meant ZERO offense to you whatsoever and enjoy reading your posts on this forum!

:lol: Hockeytown, I see what you did there!

 

 

Praying Mantha, the whole point of "our" GDT is to enjoy the creative genius of the few guys that put all the effort into it.  We appreciate the link to "all the data we need" but its just not the same.  It's also not a race to see who can get the GDT thread up first.  Again, it's well worth the wait to enjoy the creative efforts of the "regular's." No offense, but do you see what I am saying?

 

That being said, I hope Dats is 100% and doesn't reinjure his shoulder! Lets go Wings!

another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...

Another soliddddddddddd game by Glendenning.
Anyone else willing to admit babs was right about that little spark plug?

And please.
No jokes or puns because I used the word plug.
Because dude is legit one of the best fourth line centers around.

the thing about glenny is, its not Babcock who was right about him. He was a walk on at Michigan and played his way to being Captain of that team, to playing his way on to the Wings. Its Glenny who is right about himself. Hard Work and Heart can make up for a lot of things. Babcock had no choice but to keep him.

reminds me a bit of the dramatic OT win against st louis when Steve slaped it top shelf!

no comparison...great goal by Z, but clearly your memory of Yzermans goal is losing it's luster.

this settles it...Weiss has officially taken up residency in the Legwand/Modano/Commodore dog house. I almost cannot wait for Babcock to leave...

ya, just like the city developed the old Tiger Stadium land... They'll knock it down and it will remain a vacant lot for years.

I won't miss Babcock.




#2540253 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

I don't usually defend Big E, but to me it looked like he did all he could do by taking away the pass for the easy slam dunk from Kesler. What I am not sure if I saw or not is if Jimmy tried to poke check the puck off Getzlaf's stick.  E had the pass and had to allowed the goalie to take the shooter (like a two on one.) Francine had his man all the way to the net.  Getz was close enough, I believe that Jimmy could have poked at the puck and knocked it free.  Other than that, it was a perfect shot from a great player who gets paid to score those perfect goals.  I would have been more upset if it was a 4th line grinder that burned Jimmy, but its hard to stop Getzlaf in a situation like that, just as it would be hard to stop Pav or Hank in that same situation.  When you get paid $7m+ you have to score goals like that, it had to be perfectly placed and it was...most other players either put it right into Jimmy or sail it over the net.  Again, if E runs at Getz, then Kesler has a slam dunk...E did what he could have, IMO.

didn't watch but the last 5-6 mins...how'd the guys look? The Z line looked good from what I did see, even Francine. From the sounds of it on here, Howard blew...go figure.




#2538610 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 October 2014 - 05:48 PM

Exactly! What would a package of Weiss and Kindl bring us? If not just some picks.

 

Didn't know Semin was a righty...I still think he would be lights out on Dats wing.  Although $7M is a lot to swallow for Semin..... (what? I surely did not mean it that way!)
