#2672686 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by Namingway on 21 April 2016 - 09:01 PM

Man, like I said in the GDT, I don't feel as disappointed in the loss as I did in the past few years. Maybe it's because the Wings barely made it in when everyone expected them to miss the playoffs. If anything, I feel worse about how this is likely the way Datsyuk will end his career as a Red Wing. Well, I guess Lidstrom and Yzerman didn't really have the best ends to their legendary careers either. In any case, I'll always cherish the memories of Pavel Datsyuk dazzling us with his magic. I'm sure I'll be showing my future children and grandchildren ancient highlight clips from YouTube of the Magic Man. Thanks for all the fun, Pavel. It was a hell of a show.

What a game. Other than a crappy PP everything went as well as it possibly could. Smith was unreal, Mrazek steady as hell and Hank finally showed something. Bring it again Tuesday and we have a series.

#2656908 Uh oh... Coreau called up... Mrazek injured?

Posted by chaps80 on 01 March 2016 - 10:05 PM

Yeah let him take as much time as he needs if Howard keeps playing well. Shouldn't rush back from a groin issue. Let him rest a bit more, and let Howard try and raise his trade value. All good.

Great move by Kenny.... Wait.... He's the one that signed him to that contract...

This team is full of guys who just crumble under pressure. It's all in their heads. Kronwall and Ericsson are just the kind of guys who trip and fall when the game is on the line they always have been

I bet if that puck was a cheeseburger he'd stop it?

#2638320 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2015 - 11:46 AM

I dont feel like Hank is the heart and soul of our team anymore. I'm thinking next year, you sew that C on Larkin's sweater and give the A's to Hank and Sheahan. It's early, but Larkin appears to be what we have all been waiting for - our next Stevie Y.


Let's, for a minute, just say that this isn't a dumb idea. Let's say it is very intelligent. It still would never happen. Because: Red Wings.

#2636446 Goalie Battle

Posted by rick zombo on 11 November 2015 - 12:38 PM

both our goalies are top 10 in the league in save% for goalies who have started in at least 5 games.  Pretty awesome stuff

That is awesome, and hopefully sustainable. Because with this team's terrible possession numbers and shot differential, the goalies' play is obviously covering up that stench a bit.

If the team can straighten this out and continue to get great goaltending they might be dangerous.

#2633811 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by kipwinger on 28 October 2015 - 03:31 PM

For context's sake.  Jon Cooper was 5-8-3 in his first 16 NHL games.  It takes a second for new coaches to find their groove with the team.  Can we maybe give it af****** minute?

#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

I know... I know.. It is way too early to tell if the Jeff Blashill experience will be celebrated or despised.

Pulkinnen is a cancer. The puck is going to the other team if he touches it. Either by blowing it wide or just being frail garbage


Not as frail as the LGWs psyche on loser night. 

#2630697 McDavid with a dirty hit not called.

Posted by kipwinger on 14 October 2015 - 10:54 AM

Or maybe just preferential treatment is being given to a young star, but some hing like that is completely unheard of so I understand your skepticism.


I'm not skeptical of the fact that high profile players tend not to get disciplined.  It happens.  We've certainly been the beneficiary of it from time to time (Kronwall). 


I'm skeptical of this constant conspiratorial undercurrent among Red Wings fans.  Not a season goes by in which there isn't some new league conspiracy to do some new nefarious thing...always to the exclusion of Detroit, of course. 


Look at last night's GDT.  Peruse the comments and see how many are some variation of this general theme, "The refs are letting Tampa get away with something that they aren't letting Detroit get away with".  It's bogus, and worse, intellectually lazy and boring. 


There are no conspiracies.  The league lets some players get away with things, and not others, but it's the same for ALL teams' superstars.  The refs make calls and miss calls all the time, but not in an effort to screw one team or another. 


I have no idea when, or why, Detroit fans became such babies.  Our city is the most brutal, violent, roughneck, hardcore city in the country and ironically our fanbase seems to be the most whiny at times.  It's gross.  


I vote we stop complaining about all the ref/league/Bettman conspiracies.  But that's just me.
