Weiss finally gets a shot! Common man, I'll be rooting for you!

If this gets ugly, Red Wings are toast.

When was the last time we beat the Islanders?

In regulation, 2003 according to some preview. And considering how poor the Islanders have been during many years in that span... Wow.

Where the f*** is Tootoo?? Oh right he is with the Griffins because Samuelsson is so valuable...

Smith got balls.

I cannot believe Samuelsson is back in! It is like Babcock has the memory of a gold fish, and after each game he realizes "oh he still sucks, I better bench him next game".

give me a break.

Whatever you need, but it is time for people to realize that Abdelkader is much more important to this team than many want to acknowledge. You keep fooling yourself thinking he is easily replaced.

Weiss has been allright. He is on pace for a 20 goal season.


#2445010 Lineup Crunch: Who's going?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 16 October 2013 - 02:40 PM

Just something to consider in the Eaves/ Tootoo debate.............Eaves can actually be used in the playoffs, Tootoo is strictly a regular season player.   So it comes down to whether you put more value in the regular season or the playoffs.

I think Tootoo would do just fine in the playoffs if given the chance. He has played lots of playoff games for Nashville. Saying he is not a playoff player because Babcock scratched him most games last year is like saying Tatar is not an NHL calibre player.

Defense is looking better with Lashoff in the lineup. I hope Smith can step it up.


#2444090 Trade Proposal

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 14 October 2013 - 01:57 AM

Cant give up on Smith yet. But Red Wings need speed and work ethic more than defense in my opinion. Ryan Callahan or Brandon Dubinsky type players.

In regard to the Filppula vs Weiss debate I think there are important aspects that will not show in the stats. I personally feel that Weiss is an upgrade because he crashes the net while Filppula circled away from the net. This will potentially make a huge difference in the post season when the game is more defensive.

The Chief, awesome!


#2441380 Baertschi and Zibanejad thrown under the bus publically

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 03 October 2013 - 03:30 PM

Holland should make a call for Zibanejad. Would be a nice addition to the team.


#2441378 Howard or Miller?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 03 October 2013 - 03:23 PM

I really like Howard, he has developed into a very sound goalie that will carry any team deep into the postseason. No trade for me.
