#2604899 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by kipwinger on 30 April 2015 - 08:11 AM

Whelp, I've given myself about 12 hours to digest this and my preliminary thoughts are...

 

1)  If you don't blow leads in the third period, you'd be in Montreal already.

2)  The kids were better than they were a year ago in the playoffs, so glad to see some improvement (6 goals and 3 assists from Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan).

3)  Datsyuk and Zetterberg look ooooooooooold. 

4)  Anybody seen Zetterberg, Abby, and Helm?  Me neither.

This is a weak argument. I'd like Barnaby and Claude Lemieux in our team too. Doesn't mean they weren't flaming pieces of s***.

 

Except I don't think he's a flaming piece of s***, and I think it's absurd to mention him in the same sentence as guys like Lemieux. PK is no angel, and he certainly still has some growing up to do, but I don't think he's quite the ******* some people make him out to be. 




#2604758 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by gcom007 on 29 April 2015 - 10:43 PM

 

It's possible I guess.  

 

It would seem a little surprising to me because it probably means management has said Mrazek is getting the lionshare of the starts or Howard is not interested in trying to earn the job back.

 

Even if they go 50-50, it's very likely that Mrazek's playoff performance this year is going to get him the nod heading into the playoffs next year. Howard knows this. Guys like Howard want to play all the time, especially in the playoffs. If he doesn't think he's going to get that opportunity here, I think he's likely to ask to be traded. And given how Mrazek played, even if they'd like him to go 50-50 next year, they'll likely be moving him into the starter role full-time the following season. I really think it could go either way, but I wouldn't be surprised if Howard wants to move on sooner rather than later with all this in mind. He's not exactly a spring chicken.

Walked outside after the game and it was raining.  My first thought was it was the tears of Wings fans, but it wasn't raining hard enough for that.

Let's hope so. 

 

I hope Kindl gets the game winner.  Then the Wings can deal him in the offseason.   ;)

 

I'm trying to stay positive here.  Losing Kronwall is seriously the absolute worst thing that could happen to this team right now.  Worse than losing Pav, Abby, Mrazek.  Anybody.  I'm actually about to "follow" Kindl on twitter and spend him inspirational messages all day long.  Just to do my part. 




#2603333 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by MrazekFanBoy on 29 April 2015 - 11:55 AM

I think Holland's plan for post-Lidstrom was..."We'll take a run at Suter, and if not, no harm done.  We've got Kronwall and he's a legit number 1". 
 
I don't think failing to replace Lids was as big of a screw up as failing to round out the top four with legit  top four players.  We replaced Lids with the best we coudl manage, but we didn't replace Rafalski, Stuart, or Kronwall with anything special. 

Dekeyser and Kronwall look good to me, I Say snag up a guy in FA Hope one of our kids can develop by this time next year or hope E can elevate his play in a lesser role, to me DD can play top two minutes right now, he's a top tier number three so close to being a number 2

This is the smoking gun we've been waiting for. Unequivocal proof that the DoPS is just a bunch of chimpanzees spinning a wheel of fortune.




#2602544 why marek zidlicky?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 27 April 2015 - 10:40 PM

He was at the time one of the better right handed defenders available for cheap. He has a heavy shot from the point, he spent some time in a defensively responsible New Jersey organization and it seemed like a good fit.

 

At the time I agreed with the move, and even though he has been weak in the playoffs, I don't really regret it even to this point. Tonight he made noticeable mistakes, and this round hasn't been a good performance from him, but we are 3-3, not out and there's time to bounce back. 

 

Sometimes the vet players work out, sometimes they don't. For what he contributed in the season up to this point in the playoffs, calling for his head is a bit hasty. Let's see how the series finishes out.

Really,you hate the preds,because of what weber did to Z in 2012,That was 3 or 4 years ago,Time to let it go

That's adorable.

 

Oh, honey.  We never let things go.  We still hate the Ducks for making a Homer sandwich in 2007 and Pronger (who isn't even with them any more) making excuses that he's 6'6" and can't control where his elbows go.  "It's physics!"

We still hate the Penguins because Crosby didn't shake hands at the end when they won in 2009, and we still remember that they got away with 36 seconds of too many men on the ice to win that Cup.

Don't even get us started on the Turtle...

We remember everything.

Well, except for me.  I can never remember where I left the remote... or what I came in the room for... or.... what was I typing?

Hell, I haven't forgiven Ted Kennedy and Olympia's boards for injuring Gordie in 1950 and I wasn't even born then.
