#2577700 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 02 March 2015 - 03:28 PM

At first glance I liked this move, however thinking about it I'm going to have to see how the D pairings shake out before I can decide. If this sends Marchenko back down, I won't be too pleased. I'd have rather kept the pick and rolled with Marchenko. If it's a move to get TWO right handers in the lineup, I'm all for it.

It all boils down to this: Boston is just better. MUCH better.


Exactly.  People need to take the homer glasses off, and set their emotions aside.  This team at this stage in its growth is nowhere near as good as Boston.  Hell, probably half of our lineup tonight started the season in Grand Rapids, and not just started the season there, but likely would have finished it there if its not for all the injuries.  Theyre young...  its called growing pains, we're not used to it because of the steady line of vets we've rolled through here... its a changing of the guard in Detroit...  We're not as good as we like to think, we've been spoiled.  It's going to happen all over again though as these kids get more experience, and size, we're going to be that deadly team again, especially up front.  On the back end, the D really needs help, it needs a solid vet.

Do you see a single player who is better right now??


Franzen will be 35 next year.  The young guys aren't playing well now, but look at the leaders they have in front of them.  These youngsters at least have upside.


Franzen won't become better in the future, nor will he magically play harder after turning 35.  He needs to be moved, even though his stock is very low now.

They don't look like they believe they can win this.

#2512730 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Two postgame thoughts:


The other team is allowed to improve. There's no point sighing about how game 2 was different from game 1. Assuming Boston wouldn't be able to come up with a better effort in game 2 just isn't realistic.


Howard didn't have a very good game, but the loss wasn't all on him -- or even mostly on him. If he had allowed 2 goals in each of the first two games, on the road against the #1 seed, he'd have a better GAA, and would have demonstrated consistency on the road, and the wings would be down 2-zip. 


If you score 2 goals in 2 games on the road against the 1-seed, and you go back home with a split, that's kind of incredible. Credit to Howard for stealing one. 


Now, it's up to the rest of the team to figure out how to win a game *without* needing Howard to steal it.

We need to goon it up against Stamkos to send Yzerman a message here.

A win tonight would have sitting a little more comfortable when i go to the game this weekend. Putting the BJ's in our rear view is a must.

I don't like the thought of BJ's in our rear view window.

Why couldn't it be Cleary or Samuelsson? 

Because Canada and Sweden want to win in Sochi? :P

I'm not even mad. Could have easily won again, just like in Anaheim.

The calendar is moving along, though. Much more of a hole and the playoffs may not happen. Somebody get healthy -- I'm so sick of hearing "the injured players are close." They have been claiming that for nearly a month.

This one is on Babcock for not pulling thatf****** sieve after the third goal. Inexcusable.
