#2234215 12/8 GDT : Coyotes 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Nightfall on 08 December 2011 - 07:42 PM

Wings continue to lose another 2-3 games, bet on it.

Care to change your prediction?

Wings are flying high early!

#2233857 12/6 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blues 3

Posted by Nightfall on 07 December 2011 - 09:42 AM

Let's recap. The Wings wing their first 5 then go 0-5-1 and LGW melts down. So what do they do next. They go 11-2. Yes, eleven wins, two losses. They follow that with 2 close losses to Colorado and St. Louis, both on the road.

They are in the top 5 in the league in GFA, GAA, Shots, Shots Against, points, and win percentage. Jimmy is near the top of the league in wins, GAA, and save %.

But still, the two losses result in a meltdown on LGW....

Dump Z and bring up Nyquist.


I agree with this thread. Excellent post.

#2227083 What to do to beat San Jose

Anyone remember back in 96-97 when we were Colorado's *******? What did we do to snap that streak?

We got Shanny who was a great power forward for us. What this team needs is a shakeup. The stars are not producing, and thats the difference in 5 of the 7 losses. I am glad Howard is playing well because if it wasn't for him, this would have been much more ugly.

Anyone who has had his injury: will his speed be sacrificed due to the injury? That was really his major use for the team at the time of the injury.

I didn't have this injury, but there is a friend of mine who is a grinding forward who hurt himself in high school that had almost a carbon copy injury his senior year. He was centered the second or third line. After he came back, he was just as fast as he was before the injury. The problem is that until it heals fully, you are constantly feeling that you have to test it. My friend said he came back too soon, and he spent 2-3 weeks playing tenative hockey instead of getting his nose dirty like he used to before the injury.

Fast forward to today, he is playing club hockey down in Chicago.

In short, it isn't like a knee injury. The key is to make sure you are healed 100% before you come back.

Goons are not going to help us win games. Scoring goals will help us win games.


The Wings will play better. They have too much talent on this team not to play better. Keep the faith everyone.

f*** this team

Please god.....let all bandwagon fans jump off now.

10 years? 20 ... this team has no chance to make the playoffs.

Well, look at the bright side. If the Wings continue their spiral down the toilet, maybe the bandwagon and fairweather fans will take a vacation from the forums and the games. That will result in better hockey talk among the real fans.

right. kris draper would really help fix the scoring drought.

Someone has a reading comprehension problem. Seriously, this is what you understood from what you quoted?

#2221525 This season is over!

Posted by Nightfall on 02 November 2011 - 08:58 AM

Right. Because sarcastic threads like this one are so much better than the reactionary ones after a loss.

The difference is that people making the reactionary threads are at least making a serious attempt to talk about the team, even if the ideas are extreme.

This thread is just trolling.

This coming from the same person who said that people should be ok to say what they feel without the "thought police" saying anything.

Didn't I just point out in another thread that people with extreme opinions or people totally of the mark should be pointed out? Yet, you defended them then. Now, this thread pops up and you are all over the OP.

Didn't look like an elbow just shoulder.

If anything, it would have been an interference call against Koivu for not playing the puck. Kronwall had every intention to play the puck. Koivu took him out of the play. The referee down low was looking in front of the net. I don't know where the ref up high was looking, but maybe he saw it differently.

In the end, you can't let the game come down to that. The Wings had to put a puck past Harding and they couldn't do it. You aren't going to win many games scoring one goal.

#2219646 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

Do you know what I like about the Red Wings? In my 15+ years as a fan, I've never seen them miss the playoffs, raise four Cups, produce some of the best players that this and any generation will ever see, do the unthinkable and put teams together like 2002 and even the 2008 squad in the salary cap era that missed another cup by one game, a GM who doesn't make knee-jerk reactions and trade assets for rentals and has faith that the team's they have will be successful.

The negativity on this board blows myf****** mind. The Wings haven't had it easy like the Hawks, Penguins and Capitals who have put their fans through hell while piling up draft picks that finally led to some success. They put good teams together with good late drafting and signing key free agents.

No wonder no one respects Wings fans... the comments on this thread just confirm the fact that everyone thinks that they're arrogant, spoiled fans. It's three weeks into thef****** season... knock this s*** off.

I don't care if the Wings win it all or miss the playoffs, I'll continue to watch these guys do this thing and enjoy Lidstrom's potential last season while everyone attempts to kill themselves after EVERY SINGLE LOSS.

I agree with you 100%. It has gotten so bad on these forums to the point that I am going to other hockey forum boards to be active. Reading all the negativity on these boards really does make me feel the way that you do. I will also add another word into your definition and that is "entitled". Many wings fans feel just because they put a team on the ice, that they are entitled to a victory. This is the kind of attitude that you breed when your team never misses the playoffs and has won 4 stanley cups. This forum really does need an enema.

Then I read some of the positive comments from the great fans on this forum and it makes me change my mind. For as many negative fans, there are some positive ones that actually know the game of hockey. These are the people that I keep coming back to this forum for.

I am watching a DVR recording of the game now. I was watching the Griffins get beat soundly by the Heat tonight. It looks like it is going to be a close game just from the first 10 minutes of the game.

they look flat footed. were they like this in the 1st?

s***. Our PK is atrocious.

Looks like today will be the day we will have that 20-25 page monster thread of bitching, complaining, and whining after a loss. Ah, good ole LGW forum.

#2216257 Hudler?

Posted by Nightfall on 18 October 2011 - 09:05 PM

That might be true but I guess that's just the point. It's just been four games. What's there to say?

Based on the 10 pages in this thread, people apparently have a lot to say about him.

50% say trade him
40% say he has a good start
10% are just going to complain

Lets just state it like this....

He has had a good start. Lets support his hard work and re-evaluate at the 20 game mark.

Minnesota's defense looks like a PK again. It's amazing the Wings managed to let 2 in on this team.

This is why I don't give any excuses to this Detroit team. When they play focused hockey, they can beat any team in the league. The problem is that the first period and a half, they didn't play that way.

Looks like they are taking OT off now.

The LGW whipping boy gets another goal and no respect. Great tip Hudler.
