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.

#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!

#2586369 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by LeftWinger on 28 March 2015 - 09:12 PM

Well, one thing is for sure, if there is a goalie change in the playoffs, it won't be Monster!

 

Listen, to answer a question from the other thread since this is a better place to discuss it, I don't really care if the Wings win with Jimmy or Petr, just win, but that doesn't mean that its not my belief that Jimmy cannot win the big games.  Doesn't mean Petr is the next coming of Hasek, but IMO, he is better than Jimmy and deserves to be the #1 guy, and IMO can and will take this team further into the playoffs...also IMO the next Stanley Cup this team wins, Howard will NOT be the goalie to win it. AND 2 seasons ago, just saying, that a bunch of us called for Petr to be pushing Jimmy out of his starting job within a couple of seasons and now it looks as though it could be happening...IMO this time next season Petr will be solidly the #1 guy.  (which makes Jimmy a tradable asset, if he'd waive his NTC.)

Shootouts are your evidence that the defense was making Jimmy appear better than he was? I've faced it and your argument has definitely won me over.

you don't gave to be won over, you just need to face that Petr is better than Jimmy and a bunch of us called thus two season ago.

face it jimmy is just not good. It wasn't him who got them to where they were, it was the over achieving defense. He proved that by s***ting out the shootouts. Now when the D started playing bad, jimmy's true talent showed.

We need Dats and Cole back. We need Weiss to play all the time. Helm needs to go back to the 4th line. Pulkkamania needs to be in the top 6. Best players play, right Babcock?

3 goals on 9 shots is the problem.

 

lol, time out Detroit? Babcock pretending to coach? Watch, he'll put Helm and Andersson out there

ugh come on Petr...this is supposed to be Jimmys fault!

Weiss scores! Time to put him back in the press box.

of course ultimately the person to blame is Babcock. He keeps playing Howard and he has some f***ed up line combos. I know the last two we've had more injuries than before, but even before that he baffles me...jurco is not a checker, Andersson is not a scorer, Weiss needs to play. Pulkkinen is not a 4th liner...
