#2580572 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by rick zombo on 10 March 2015 - 10:51 AM

 

Buffalo, Edmonton and Arizona are out of reach to catch up....... But if Toronto wins out and we tank they would beat us by 3 points. #Tankfor27th

 

I don't know about you, but I'd rather have a top 5 draft pick than, like, you know,  be a good team and stuff. ;)

#2578946 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 March 2015 - 09:04 AM

Am I the only one who thought Quincey had a rough game? I'm not blaming him, but I thought his skating was really choppy. I think he's had a fantastic season, but if his ankle injury is going to cause an issue, he should take care of it. Perhaps he just had an "off" game. Maybe I'm imagining things.
 

I'm 100% behind a healthy Quincey in the line-up. Hopefully he looks better next game.

From your posts you sound like a 16 year old that doesn't know anything about hockey.;

 

 Yeah, well from your posts you sound like a 15 year old that knows less than nothing about hockey




#2576506 Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

Posted by Yzerfan87 on 01 March 2015 - 12:05 PM

Wow, guess we really are getting desperate for things to complain about eh? Who knew that beating the best team in the leaguer on the road wasn't good enough?

Because the old Wings team, they never blew leads, let alone lost games. Yes sir, 82-0-0 and a 16-0 run to the cup every playoffs


No no, the old Wings, when they gave up the lead, they just quit playing and allowed the other team to win.

Exactly, that's what this team needs... Wait. What?

Wheelz on the tank? I mean, they pulled off a win against the top team in the league, showed resiliency by coming back after losing the lead, and have been the best in the league at doing so. Racking up 9 points of 12 on a road trip that on paper made many think could bury the Wings or at the very least throw a big wrench into things. I understand the frustration at blowing the leads, but I'm sure Babcock and company are addressing it. I'd be much more concerned if they weren't showing the resiliency. Officiating in which the only consistency is it's poor quality doesn't help. There are a LOT of things to be excited about win this team. I actually look at the comeback capabilities of this team as a good sign for the postseason wars.

#2577612 Is East just as good or better than West this year?

Posted by toby91_ca on 02 March 2015 - 01:58 PM

Wings are 16-3-3 against the West, Rangers are 13-3-5 and Pens are 12-4-2.




#2577617 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 March 2015 - 02:01 PM

Ya, all of Pulk, March and Jurco will all be "sent to GR" on paper, in order to qualify them for the AHL playoffs.  They will be "recalled" after 3PM when the roster limits are no longer set at 23, as long as they fit under the cap.

 

I cannot say how happy I am right now, these are two types of trades that add the right combo of what a team may need to get them over the top.  All these teams "loading up" have a s*** ton more to lose if they don't win a Cup, and guess what? Last I heard only ONE team can still win the Cup, so there are 4-5 teams that loaded up this week, that are going to kicking themselves in the ass...Chicago better win this year, becuase if they don't, they are facing the same situation as 2010, they will need to dump salary to get under the cap. 

 

What Holland did the last 24 hours just proves that he is still one of the best. I may be biased, but if you are couting what was sent in retrurn today, Detroit cam out near the top of the "winner" chart.  I am very critical of Holland (to say the least) but today it just proves how much I should be less critical of him.  Look at the last few years of drafting and todays deadline.  Sure he paid too much for Legwand last year, but he HAD to, there was almost no way of making the playoffs with Andy as your #1 center. He tried for the Olsen twins, he tried for the big names last July, he stood his ground last year and this year when everyone wanted Mantha (and now Larkin.)  This may not be a Cup winning day for us, but it was definitely a playoff push move.  These guys bring experience that could push us further into the playoffs we have been since 2009.

 

Cheers to Ken Holland! Welcome to Hockeytown Erik and Marek!




#2575693 Couture suspen.....no wait, just fined pocket change

Posted by number9 on 27 February 2015 - 05:57 PM

:lol: That is only 0.00083% of his $6,000,000 salary....that'd be like me getting fined $67! I have a feeling I'd miss the $67 more than he is going to miss the $5000. NHLPA is some bulls***.  In the video he even lifted his leg way back in the opposite direction to get a good whack at Smith.  I've never seen a worse slew foot, and am I hearing right that Smith is the one who got a hooking penalty on the play?  Wow NHL, Wow....

 

You make $80,000 a year




#2572302 2/18 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (SO. Yes, SO!).

Meh.  Big deal.  There's not shootouts in the playoffs.  

You mean that thing we're notoriously bad at? Yea I know.


#2571015 Franson to Preds

Posted by derblaueClaus on 15 February 2015 - 07:51 PM

It's not so much about what Franson is, it's more about how much does he improve the team. I don't watch as many Leafs games as you guys but from what I saw and read in his stats he is more or less on par with Kronwall regarding offense but worse defensively. In my opinion that makes him very good top 4 defender and a decent top 2. But we already have two, maybe three of that in Quincy, Ericsson and arguably DeKeyser.

 

Sure, they don't have the offensive upside of Franson but they make that more or less up with their better defensive play. So, would Franson have improved us ? Sure, we'd be a little bit more flexible and deeper on our blueline and increased our production a little bit. Would that be nice to have ? Of course. Would it worth the price of a top pick + prospect ? No. What we really need is a offensive top 2 D-Man to complement Kronwall on our first paring not another top 4 guy. Franson simply isn't that guy. And the price paid by the Preds is to high for just "nice to have", especially considering Franson is an UFA this summer. I'm glad Kenny stayed away from him and I hope he also doesn't trade for Petry for the same reasons stated here. The far better options are to get Yandle or to stay pat and try to sign Green this summer.




#2569363 Babcock: "HE WINS, FULL STOP" - THN

Posted by krsmith17 on 08 February 2015 - 09:08 AM

Give it a rest Frank. You're only saying that so, what? If he doesn't sign you can say, "well, unfortunately I was right", and if he does sign here, you can be "pleasantly surprised"...

 

Babcock is not going anywhere. Why would he? There are about 100 more reasons for him to stay than there would be for him to leave...

 

This is an up and coming team that is only going to get much much better over the next few seasons. He knows this. Why wouldn't he want the opportunity to coach two completely different Red Wings teams to Stanley Cups? He loves coaching these kids. Like, zombo said, he already coaches the best player in the league, Pavel mother f***ing Datsyuk. Both Pav and Hank are still basically point per game players, Nyquist and Tatar should both hit 60 points this season, and only improve on that in years to come.

 

The Red Wings as an organization is the best in the National Hockey League, hands down, the best owner, the best GM and the best coach.

 

The Wings were expected to finally miss the playoffs this season, and they're quite possibly going to win the East and have a good shot at winning the President's Trophy. But yeah, no chance he wins the Jack Adams...

 

I'll say it again, Babcock has a legit shot at winning the Adams, and he absolutely, 100% will re-sign after this season.
