#2447931 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by DRW Dominance on 26 October 2013 - 04:27 PM

 

 I think it's where the mishmash of 3rd and 4th line particularly stands out.   On a lot of teams that's the fast, crash bang line that keeps the puck deep in the corners and will throw it out front for a good chance.  On the Wings it's just inferior versions of the top two lines.

this exactly.  drives me nuts how the bottom six try to play like the top 6.  they need to be more traditional when it comes to the bottom six.  do as much crash and bang as possible.  having said that though, helm, nyquist, tatar maybe would be excellent as a third line.

this game is disgusting.  when we look bad we look really bad.  no heart or intensity. 

 

where's the hits from abby, cleary, bert, franzen the floater....no forecheck at all.

i'm not nearly as upset as I thought I would be.

I think it's because I didn't expect Detroit to win.

but man were they close.


#2413796 Trade Smith ASAP!

at this point in his career smith is terrible.....and I mean terrible.

but he will have so many good years ahead of him.

lol at Detroit's poise and theirf****** stupidity.

 

how many times until they learn to just get the puck out??  stop cycling it backwards.  enough already.

team is completely bipolar so I wont be surprised if they win 6-0 or lose 6-0.

Growing pains of a young d corp. it was bound to happen.... Just sucks that it's happening a lot worse then some may have thought

agreed.  smith i'm sure will have a very bright future....he is still a baby in terms of defenceman and age

I'm stunned and tired.

 

just win and I will forgive and expect howard to come back strong

 

I guess this is a good learning experience for the young guys???

 

can't take your foot off the gas at all

 Too many passengers right now. 

I don't think they're passengers.

 

they're flat out just not good enough.




#2386681 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

I agree to the post above as well. 

 

about the skill thing.  I find our bottom six thinking too much that they are top six.  there is not enough of a grinding aspect to their game.  they're too soft right now thinking they can out skill when they cannot.

 

get back to your game bottom six....hit, grind, dump and chase.

 

this team lacks an identity.




#2289063 Three keys to beating Nashville?

Posted by DRW Dominance on 16 April 2012 - 04:23 PM

staying out of the box. 5 on 5 play we can dominate anybody.

i'd say that's it. all bad things stem from killing 8 penalties a game.


#2287901 WCQF Game Three GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by DRW Dominance on 15 April 2012 - 02:03 PM

like everyone else is saying. try playing when the puck drops.

it's hard because we all know this team will own anyone if they want to.

problem is, do they want to?


#2240093 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3

While he didn't score to potential, he was a great playmaker. He won a LOT of battles along the boards. I was happy with his playoff performance overall.


i know what you're saying because trust me, i love the way he plays.

but his money isn't earned by winning board battles.

he didn't play well for pitt or us in the playoffs, but played very well for chicago.

oh well, franzen just won't cut it. this team requires a pure goal scorer.
