#2585801 3/26 GDT: Sharks 6 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Dave on 27 March 2015 - 06:43 AM

The Leafs went 4-10-1 last March during their regular season collapse. The Wings are currently 4-7-1 in March. They are Leafing their way right out of the playoffs.

#2583724 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Blashill vs. Babcock? People can't be serious! Without any NHL head coaching experience, Blashill is the consolation prize to Babcock's proven winner.

This is the defense all of us feared going into the season. They overachieved for most of the way, but the past two weeks have been very ugly. Far too many defensive breakdowns and inability to handle a forecheck.

Nobody said he is elite. There are only 2-3 truly elite goaltenders in the league but throwing him under the bus for the teams results since the road trip is wrong. Hes a good NHL goaltender and the wings best option in net. Get over it.


He is also to blame. Him and the entire defense.

Zidlicky and Cole were both great tonight, Howard was the best player. What a deadly W, 3 game win streak!


Agreed, three W's in a row.... Wait a minute, Toronto can't put three W's together in a row, how do they even have a website? (Sorry, couldn't resist).


#2577780 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by amato on 02 March 2015 - 07:00 PM

Would like to see them rest Quincey a few games and roll with....

Kronner-Smith
DD-Zid
Ericsson-Marchenko

Gives Smith a little more responsibility; hopefully he runs with it.

DD-Zid I have a feeling would be a great pairing.

And Ericsson on the bottom pairing gives Marchenko more of a veteran presence.


I think it's at least worth a try like that. If Quincey needs some more rest anyway.


#2577025 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Just had another thought.  One of those trades was with Yzerman and the other was with Jim Nill.  Maybe it's just a coincidence, but they are Holland's proteges.  

dont jinx us....you know who runs the leafs...dont you?

:scared:




#2577022 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Three years in a row now he's made a deal. Quincey, Legwand, Cole.

Or was Q a year before that?

#2577018 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

I was surprised by this, as I thought Dallas would resign him since he had good chemistry with Spezza. I liked Janmark as a prospect, but I think he is a C+/B- level prospect with upside. Backman, as others have said, likely burned his bridges and isn't much of a loss as he wasn't going to make the big show in Detroit. I think it was a fair trade with a big early advantage for the Wings if he stays healthy. I also agree with the Dallas Drake analogy. Kenny has done well with this one.

Holland is the king of the deadline band-aid. Just grab some old broken down players and say you improved the team for the playoffs. 

 

Can't wait to see Babs passive aggressively tossing Cole on the 4th line to rot away.

 

GET US A DMAN WORTH A DAMN.

 

18 goals, hits a ton, brings much needed size and physicality qualifies as broken down? It's not like Cole is this 36-year-old slug that can't skate either. Cole does improve the Red Wings for the playoffs -- that isn't just organizational lip service.

Yeah bring a guy in who has scored 18 goals and has speed for a 36 yr old is terrible... give me a break... Erik Cole is a really good pick up

I think there's a chance. We'll be in on Petry till the price goes to high, I think we'll be in on Zidlicky too, and if Toronto will take money back probably Dino as well. There's definitely reason to watch tomorrow to see if Kenny goes for it. 


Zidlicky I like, Petry I'm just not big on. I also think there will be some new names we haven't heard about yet, traded tomorrow.
