#2259752 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

Posted by Rivalred on 21 February 2012 - 02:11 PM

Pavel, you will be missed over the next two weeks even though your production has diminished to less than a PPG (point per game) for three weeks out of the shortest month of the year while not finishing up the month, which therefore would screw the final results when comparing an entire full month depending of course how many games where scheduled in previous months and how much ice time you have played in correlation to global warming and the seemingly warm winter.

OK, you quoted my post?

One does not have to pay close attention to the statistics like you have to know if the Wings are playing good hockey or not.

Pavel, rest up and get better bro...

Hope folks do not criticize the way you wipe your ass over the next 2 weeks and keep track if you shake one or two times after using the urinal.

sort of just seems like you're in the mood to argue. Here's a simple question, do you think he's been as good since the all star break as he was before it?

I do not really keep track of numbers like you nor do I get to watch every game, but I do know the entire team as a whole is contributing more this year than previous...

In my eyes, it offsets things if a player or players output has diminished... Player(s) goes through slumps and taking a small snippet with the stats like you have is over-the-top in my eyes.

In a perfect world and society, this entire team would be firing on all cylinders and we would winning games with score of 20-0...

See how that is a bit silly? That is how I see your criticism of Pavel especially if he has been playing injured.

Hey I'm not saying the guy isn't good, he's always a threat. But so far, February has been his worst month (since his beginning of the season slump). He's less than a point a game in Feb, and was a point a game or more in Nov., Dec., and Jan. Also, Feb. is the first month since Oct. that's he's posted a minus (granted, only -2). Still effective, but less effective over the last 10 games or so.

As a whole, the entire team is contributing more than relying on just a few players.

Criticizing that average is a bit over-the-top.

ya, i dont think anybody heard that he didnt travel with the team. im glad theyre getting it done though.

4 home games in the next 2 weeks. Van, Col, Minn, and black-hacks. gonna be tough to keep the streak alive.

I for one really do not care about the streak at this point, I want the team healthy/ready for the playoffs....

#2238272 12/21 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Canucks 4

Sadly, I feel Kronner will get suspended due to the follow through as he left the ice as others have pinted out.

Should the 4th goal been called off? Eh, Canucks player was going hard to the net, but lost an edge and slid into him which pulled Jim into the net...

Wait and see I guess..

#2205947 Red Wings Sponsor?

I never thought I'd hope for Little Caesar's Arena, but right about now, it sounds lovely.


Hockey arena shaped like a bag of crazy bread, slice of pizza, or a pizza box....

Creative eh?

#2200400 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by Rivalred on 22 July 2011 - 01:44 PM

Lid's number is next to be retired, that is a given... I do feel the Wings should retire #30 as he has been a crucial part of their success for 3 Stanley Cups, and main reason for winning 2 of them.
