#2582206 3/15 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Penguins 1

Petr's stick handling is so much better than Howard's. He just negated a dump in and sent it up the ice.

huge difference to our D having that option.

gotta keep this lead or bigger into the third




#2581887 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by DRW Dominance on 15 March 2015 - 07:55 AM

 

I think the team plays more relaxed in front of Mrazek because of how he handles the puck.  He handles it with more confidence than Jimmy.  He is also at times more confident and poised in the net.  It is also true that sometimes Mrazek will really get a bit lost coming out too far and over-challenging.  But, on balance, my opinion is that Jimmy has not played great since coming back from the groin tear (which by the way was caused by one of his horrific mishandles behind the net...resulting in him scrambling awkwardly back to the net).  I think overall we played some of our best hockey when Mrazek was starting...perhaps his puck handling gets the offense rolling from the defensive end.  I would let Jimmy sit and gather himself for an extended period of time...and go with Mrazek.  This team needs a shake up and this would do it.  Let Jimmy back up for awhile.

 

I also would get Marchenko back in there once he is healed and perhaps sit Ericsson for awhile...he makes way too many mistakes and needs a bit of a break.

 

Weiss should sit as well...he is inconsequential on a team that needs difference makers.

 

I think players go thru funks and when they are in a funk, just sit them.  Rest them for awhile.  Don't grind the same guys out there who are having problems.

i say yes to marchenko and to mrazek.  i really think we should give weiss a shot at the job he came here for.  let him centre the 2nd line for the rest of the season and see how he handles it.  it can't be any worse than what is happening right now anyway.




#2581885 Helm injury update and a very good one too

Posted by DRW Dominance on 15 March 2015 - 07:28 AM

Helm should be back soon, no? I thought Babcock was thinking he'd be ready for today. We could REALLY use him tomorrow.

i would say thursday

Ugh I don't see us winning tomorrow either.

hopefully we'll get pleasantly surprised

Our ability to stand still is amazing. Easily the best in the league.


#2581257 3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

howard is not consistent but this game was in no way on him.  first and second goals he had zero chance on.  the third he might have been slightly more prepared but was not expecting a guy to split ericsson and miller untouched.  still a good shot on that goal.

 

i don't like howard i'm just sayin'




#2581052 3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

And none of this taking periods off crap, I love the excitement of a come from behind win as much as anyone but I want to see a rout on occasion. We're more than capable.

Agreed. We absolutely despise playing a full good game. :)

I don't expect to dominate every game but yes we are capable of dominating stretches.


#2581047 3/12 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 1

Posted by DRW Dominance on 12 March 2015 - 08:22 PM

I hate to agree with this, but you're absolutely right. With the way they are playing, the result will be the same.


Even if we're playing well i still don't think it'll matter. If and that's a big if we play well we can beat anyone in the east. Our D has to be lights out though. Still too flustered and just plain bad at moving the puck.


#2574835 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

those announcers are BRUTAL!  acting like Kane got shot....he did barely touch him.




#2515710 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by DRW Dominance on 25 April 2014 - 06:36 AM

i think some people on here just need to realize that sometimes the other team is just flat out better.

 

i could think of many times in this playoffs alone where a team has surrendered a two goal lead.




#2513959 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by DRW Dominance on 22 April 2014 - 08:41 PM

Is it just that the team is quitting on Babs? I'm looking for a simple, all-encompassing answer here. I don't get it. How can we suck this bad?

boston is just that much better than our grand rapids red wings




#2503763 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by DRW Dominance on 30 March 2014 - 05:22 PM

100 times out of 10 thats a penalty shot on howard


#2503455 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

Posted by DRW Dominance on 30 March 2014 - 08:30 AM

sorry folks, i'm going to this game tonight and detroit has never won when i've been there.

 

blame it on me.

 

Here's to a win and bucking that trend! Wings need to come up huge here, Toronto is due for a win and it isn't going to come easy. -Nyquist & Tatar I hope continue their surge here LGW

 

well, they finally won when i was on hand....good but nervous game.  howard made a couple of huge saves.  franzen was slightly better but still pretty useless.  the leafs fans booing at the end of the game was priceless.  on talk radio after the game every fan is ready to blow it all up.
