#2557877 12/19 GDT : Islanders 2 at Red Wings 1

By misrepresenting do you mean like when you assumed I said JH was "slow" and "never made big saves"? Don't let facts get in the way of a good zing, huh?

 

I'll try to use as few words as possible so you don't go off course.

 

 

 

You said Jimmy wouldn't make that save.

 

No way we could know that.

If that replay was the penalty, it was pretty soft but I'll take it. 


 

Is there any reason given why ?

 

He'd been a healthy scratch for multiple games and wasn't happy about it.

I know I'm beating a dead horse, but does a shot from the point by the Wings ever get on net?  Or even deep?

someone "accidentally" run into the net for chrissakes

Man I hate Clutterbuck.  I don't even have a great reason.  Just hate him. 




#2557821 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 19 December 2014 - 08:41 PM

Yeah, because Scott Czarnowczan is definitely an upgrade over Backman... Rare mismanagement by the Wings on this one in my opinion, although I guess none of us know the full story about what was really going on there...

 

He's a downgrade if only for having to spell his name.

One less prospect to rank…

Can also confirm through Red Wings that @griffinshockey D Mattias Backman has returned to Sweden.




#2557448 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 17 December 2014 - 04:44 PM

 

Nor do we want him.

 

we don't?

 

Admittedly I can't see a scenario where the Wings could get Hall anytime soon, but I also can't imagine why the Wings wouldn't want him given the right deal.

 

Yes he plays a little recklessly and isn't great defensively, but I can't hold too much against him for any of that given the disaster that is the Edmonton Oilers.  He still has maturing to do, and it's not gonna happen in Edmonton under the conditions there for the last few years.




#2557443 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 17 December 2014 - 02:38 PM

"What I don't like is Howie stood on his head and leaves the rink feeling like he didn't win," Babcock said. "They don't have a home run derby at the end of a tied ballgame. It doesn't make any sense."

 

Boo hoo. 

 

Isn't this the same guy who always talks about not making excuses, and only worrying about things you can control?

 

This whole organization is on a crusade against the shootout.  And the funny part is, the more the GM and coach ***** about it and fight against it, the worse we do.  If you guys recall, we used to be fairly decent in the shootout. 

 

Agreed. 

 

While I agree with Babcock's sentiment, especially given how well Jimmy played during actual hockey, the reality is that the NHL does have the equivalent of a home run derby deciding games.  The Wings have been terrible at it, and it's costing them points.  Suck it up.

 

As for the Wings being fairly decent at it in the past. They've lost a lot of the guys who could actually score, like Bertuzzi.   Howard is a problem.  But man o man they don't score much either.

 

I've said this before but I'm a little surprised that the younger guys aren't better at it.   Seems like by sheer percentages the Wings should have a few cocky euros who know all sorts of ridiculous shootout tricks they practiced growing up.   :D

Because we suck.

 

1st place in their division.  3rd in the conference.  6th in the league.

 

PK is 2nd in the league.  PP 8th.  Goals For 6th.  Goals Against 7th.

Is that really the line up? Gosh I'd rather see Franzen with dat and tat and put helm on third with jurco and Sheahan.

 

What have Datsyuk and Tatar done wrong to deserve Franzen on their line? 

 

Mule's gone on Christmas vacation early this year.  Maybe playing less than 14 minutes last game and being demoted to the third line will get his attention.  




#2556818 NHL Mumps Outbreak

Thank you. 

 

So Crosby is sitting there looking like that amidst a mumps epidemic in the NHL, and the medical staff thinks "yeah, he's good to go."

Crosby has mumps

 

yup.

Hard to believe a couple days ago they were claiming he wasn't.  Pretty smart guys.   




#2556699 12/13 GDT : Red Wings 1 @ Maple Leafs 4 *MOD WARNING POST 198*

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 13 December 2014 - 10:08 PM

Wings are no different than last year. Same crap. Three straight losses to the Maple Leafs that everyone thought they sucked.

 

Remember Samuelsson? Bertuzzi? The terrible version of Weiss?   Jordin "pressbox" Tootoo?  

 

Injuries and inexperience will be the big question marks for the Wings this season, but this is not the same team as last year.

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 13 December 2014 - 10:00 PM

Mule hasn't even registered a shot on goal in his last two games.  

 

Taking his Christmas vacation a bit early? 

 

 

EDIT:  And I think that extends his goal drought to 12 games? 

 

(I'm not saying Franzen is the only problem.  He is not. But he started so strong and Mule going silent doesn't help).
