#2592556 Marchenko to play Game 1 in the playoffs

Posted by kliq on 11 April 2015 - 10:10 PM

I don't know why everyone always hates on Ericsson .. He's not perfect does make mistakes but he's the only 6'5 dman we have so id way keep him in over smith

As with you I do believe smith will go to toronto for Phaneuf in a deal so long as no mantha type prospect is involved ... If we have to give up someone of value like a pulkkinen mantha or 1st forget it .... Toronto is in no position to demand such things

I'd be just as happy bringing zidlicky back one year and promoting 1-2 of marchenko jensen ouellet instead


People also forget that he is playing against the the best of the best every night. The guy is better suited as second pairing guy, he is currently being miscast.

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing

Even nicer since the second longest streak just came to an end at 10 years.

I am very happy and relieved and proud of DRW for making the playoffs for 24 straight seasons. It's an amazing accomplishment.

I also can do without the extreme negativity, never fun.

But I disagree with a sentiment of, "Hey let's be happy we're in, this team is still great!" Yes they are, but they have faltered after looking extremely promising at several points during this season. Further, expectations are reasonably high for this franchise. I believe it is understandable to be disappointed with this team. We invest so much as fans and sure, these runs to the playoffs are great, but it is not baseless to be somewhat disappointed.

All being said, love this team til I die and here's to an improbable playoff run. Cheers!

#2589773 The Lines to get us in

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 April 2015 - 08:16 AM

Why would Jurco be on the top two lines?  He's scoring about as often as the dorky kid in school.


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Cole

Nyquist - Weiss - Tatar

Abdelkader - Sheahan - Helm

Miller - Glendenning - Dano

#2589631 4/5 GDT : Washington Capitals 2 at Red Wings 1

Stop it.  This team has regressed for years under Babcock.  This year they might miss the playoffs completely.  The last five weeks are a microcosm of the end of his coaching career in Detroit.  


This team has regressed because its core has gotten old. That's what happens to every hockey team on the planet - Detroit fans are just too spoiled to recognize that it has to happen to them eventually, too.


The best player on our team is on the wrong side of 35 and dealing with nagging injuries. Our captain is getting there and has even worse back problems. We're also down Franzen, as well as our two big guys (Cole/Abby). 


What part of "this team is in the middle of a rebuild" don't you understand? This team isn't supposed to make the playoffs, let alone contend for the Cup. It's only because of Babcock and our incredible farm system that we're even in the race at all. If you feel fine throwing that away, then fine. But there's a reason that Babcock would be the biggest FA in the NHL this off-season, and a reason you're not a GM. And thank god for that.

#2588799 In the midst of one of the worst slumps in recent memory...where will

Posted by MrazekFanBoy on 03 April 2015 - 08:23 PM

Wings will go 3-1-1 Lose in OT to Minni Beat the Caps lose to the Habs and beat carolina twice, Tatar will score 30 goals and Datsyuk will lead the team with 65
+ points and we will play the lightning in the first round.

Isn't it still murica? They can't tell me what I can wear to the game, it's downright unconstitutional! Time for a revolution!

#2588640 Is Hank too slow and ineffective to play center?

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 02 April 2015 - 11:25 PM

He's not done. That's absurdity. He's just not going to be an elite force on anything close to a consistent basis anymore. Doesn't mean he doesn't still bring value. Doesn't mean he doesn't have heart. Doesn't mean he's not a great leader. He's just been through too much at this stage in his career to continue to be a dominant force for this team at either end of the ice. It is what it is. Newer, younger guys need to rise up and help carry the load.


Edit: As far as I'm concerned, the most important player on this team at this point is without a doubt Datsyuk. He can still turn a game on it's head almost singlehandedly, and you can count on him to do so far more often than Z. He's not the type to wear the C, but from a heart and soul and "engine" standpoint, Dats is the leader of this team.


Totally agree, this team lives and dies with Pav.


It's an interesting thing to see here as age seems to be catching up much quicker with Hank than Pav. Pav has lost a step, but he's still an absolute difference maker.

Posted by GoWings1905 on 02 April 2015 - 09:59 PM

Even if the Wings just beat Carolina twice (I know, far from a certainty right now), that would give them 97 points. Ottawa would have to get seven of a possible ten points to tie. Not unrealistic given the Senators run lately, but the Wings still control their own destiny. If the Wings go 2-2-1, they are basically forcing Ottawa to win out.

Just looking for something positive because I'm too bummed otherwise thinking about tonight's game.

I'm really thinking I might have to take a break from watching the wings

Mraz, I like ya kid, but damn what a HORRIBLE goal to let in at that point in the game. A 4 year old Timbits league goalie could have stopped that.


This team is screwed. I actually thought they'd win this one. s***ty buzz.

Posted by GoWings1905 on 02 April 2015 - 09:21 PM

Sad thing is, the Red Wings were the much better team for most of the game and still didn't win. They just look very fragile when things start going against them. Had a ton of confidence and then lost it in the third.

Howard needs to start on Saturday, though. Mrazek blew this one, which is two of the past three games, he hasn't been very good.
