#2271318 3/17 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Sharks 3 (OT)

Posted by ben_usmc on 18 March 2012 - 01:06 AM

Ken Holland is the best GM in the league and about every other person that knows anything about the NHL would agree. The Red Wings are in a slump... it happens to every team! To top that, we have guys getting injured left and right... it is very hard to win when you are missing key players, and almost every game someone else is getting hurt... it messes lines up and so on. I am very confident with the fully armed and operational Red Wings team come playoff time.

The one thing that does bug me a LOT is DAN CLEARY! He does not deserve to wear a Red Wings uniform this season at all. I know his knee is effed up but that is affecting his game so much that he is REALLY BAD almost every shift. If that isn't bad enough, Babs puts Cleary with a returning from injury PASHA?! All that is gonna do is slow Pasha down because Cleary is useless. Pasha deserves a better linemate than CLEARY! IMO Miller has done his job fantastically this year and deserves to play with Pasha a hell of a lot more than Cleary. Cleary needs to be benched.

You have to admire the Wings effort to come back tonight and I am fully confident that we will win at least 7 or 8 of our remaining 10 games. Hopefully come Monday we get good news about Nick and then everything will fall into place. Have faith Wings fans we have a team full of guys who knows how to win... we will win.

He doesn't play like he is injured, he plays like someone who just doesn't give a f***. All the opposing team has to do when that f*** has the puck is just sit behind goalie because he's going to dump it to them, or just give a slight rub out and the puck is theres. Not to mention his defense is just pathetic, a small like wack with a stick and he feels that's about as much energy as he need to exert. f*** Dan Cleary, Every player in both locker rooms should just line up and be allowed to punch him in his stupidf****** face.


#2270673 Call the team out

Yep....must be why we won the cup in 08 and went to game seven the next year. It's not the size of the dog, ya know?



That was a more skilled team & the rest of the western teams had not caught up to the new financial requirements & the teams in the west were chasing a finesse style of play.

The western teams are bigger now, we are less skilled & there is far more parody in the west. Today, the sharks are 9 points above 500 & are not in the play offs. It's not 08.

What is this team's advantage over the one in 2008?

I'd like tof****** know, since that every damn poster here keeps talking about our damn losing streak in February of 2008. It's getting annoying quite honestly.

What does this team do better than the 2008 Wings team did?


#2270679 Call the team out

Once again, a user neggs and is too yellow to debate!

Anyhow, Calling Out now will be useless....change is needed if the players don't show up come playoffs. There are "certain" players who take most nights off. They score in bunches and are very VERY inconsistent. If this team gets eliminated in the first round. Anyone not named Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Smith, Howard, Helm, Abdelkader and Kronwall should be "available." Trade the entire team? No, but no serious offer will be unheard. Unfortunately the guys I listed will probably be the only ones asked about....


Helm, Abdelkader, and Smith are untouchable but not Filppula huh? I really hope that was an oversight.

I don't understand the comparisons because there are none. The 08 team had 1st in the west locked down by the time the injury streak hit, and we had alot more offensive depth back then. That team was consistent and was top 5 in both GF and GA, right now our current team is a mess. And to make matters worse, I realize we're missing our 2 best players, but that's all were missing (I like Eaves but he's been gone so long, Ericsson is the 6th defenceman, and Kindl the 7th). In 08 we had everyone go out at the same time it seemed like, and we still held onto 1st. This year, no chance at it, we're gonna be lucky to get home ice at all unfortunately.

All I know is finishing 4th in the Conference will not get us a Cup!


I would love to hear the logic in this one, what does finishing 4th, 1st or 8th have to do with getting on a roll and winning 16 games?

Lidstrom, Holland and Ilitch need to meet with Shanahan, and convince him a supension isn't the way to handle this.


#2267876 Kronwall Destroys Voracek

Posted by jroc86 on 06 March 2012 - 10:00 PM

Head was primary point of contact - could have "minimized" it seeing how this was a head on shoulder check as opposed to Kronwalls usual Rob Blake ass-check style. Beautiful praiseworthy hit- a year or two ago. 2 games is my bet.

I predict suspension.

Shanny is a clown now. This is a clean check, what the league NEEDS to keep in the game. And I will not be surprised if it's suspended, when clearly it shouldn't be :thumbdown:


#2266128 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by akustyk on 03 March 2012 - 02:11 PM

but Burke was supposed to be the best GM out there who only builds winning franchises....

I can't stand Burke and his love for flashlights. looks like he'll go down in the very best place to do so - Toronto. there won't be shortage of flashes and media attention when he's fired next season...


gotta say... loving every minute of this situation. this team has been atrocious for years - too bad to reach the playoffs, to proud to admin being bad and tank the season for a high draft pick. and I'm sure they won't pull a decent losing streak for the rest of 2011-12 but do their best to finish 9th.

Toronto Maple Laughs. epic fail written all over it.


plus: it's great fun to follow Toronto Sports Network how their tune changed from "this is the year" in the beginning of the season to the current doom and gloom.


#2266117 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by RedWingsRox on 03 March 2012 - 01:22 PM

Burke just blew $1 mill or more, whatever his one year extension was to his buddy Wilson. Stupid of him to give him extension before Christmas when he hasn't done anything. Having said that, there are so many ex-coaches still living on their contract pay and then get a new job. Does this mean that Carlyle he is getting paid both by Anaheim (whatever his contract was) and Leafs?


#2266237 The Blues are in the driver's seat

Posted by Icesurfer on 04 March 2012 - 01:05 AM

St. Louis has just finished a long 6 game road trip (5 out west) and won FIVE of them. Needless to say the Blues are hot and playing very well on the road. First time since February 2009 that they had won 4 in a row on the road.

The Wings are not playing well on the road and they have 8 games left on the road. Blues have 9 games left on the road. Who has the advantage now?

So for those who thought the Wings were going to win the division because their schedule is easier..... think again. IMHO, the Blues have the advantage simply because Detroit is hurting and still have not corrected the problems on the road.

Detroit's season is over, IMHO, if they don't win the division. The Wings' trip out West coming up next week may be the turning point.... one way or the other... although the game against the Blues in St. Louis on April 4th will probably determine who wins the divsion and each team has won outright their home games against each other this year.
