#2504241 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by T.Low on 31 March 2014 - 08:24 PM

Glendening is shutting down and pissing off the likes of Crosby and Stamkos in his rookie season - and he wasn't even suppposed to be on the roster. That's huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. Goals will come. He's certainly had his chances.

Did you guys hear Ken Daniels quoting Babcock on Glenny:

"Other than Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, and Bergeron, Luke Gendening is the most competitive player I've ever coached."

Personally, I'd rather they just put Weiss on the shelf for the rest of the season and both sides can put this season behind us and start fresh.  He's basically missed two whole seasons, he's with a new team and can't be in good shape at all.  I can't really see him adding a whole lot.  While I expected more out of Legwand, I still think he's going to bring more to the table than Weiss.  I just don't think the Wings can afford to put someone in who needs 10 games to get his legs and conditioning back.

I want to see how we play in the 3rd, with the Leafs playing last night.  


Whenever we're in the same situation, we looked gassed in the 3rd and everyone here makes excuses about how we played last night, yada yada yada.  


LOL, I would say that only happens to us and other teams never get hit by tired bug, but I watched Hawks play Ottawa last night and they looked sickening. Was nice to see Hawk's team get skated circles around by a more rested and hungry Ottawa team.

So this is what it feels like to play us in the second period.

5 more and we have a healthy lead going into the 3rd.

Looking like a team lacking NHL talent.

This game is so important yet we come out SO flat. I just don't understand

I don't think they came out flat.  They just look like they suck at playing hockey.  Can't get a two-way game going in the slightest.  Only 1/4 of the team looks NHL-calibre.

All I think of when watching the Wings is the song "Give it Away" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers

After all these injuries and with only 10 games left the positive is that the Wings are in a playoff spot, that is incredible in itself.


The kids have been amazing but they can only do so much even as brilliant as Nyquist has been. Could very well have had a few more points if a guy like Franzen woke up and wasn't a useless phook these past few games.


Howard is getting back to being that playoff Howard we now know going to need that down the stretch, hopefully some good news on the injury front come Thursday.


Go Wings!

The 3rd period collapse has to stop. Tonight the officiating contributed directly, but the trend remains. Howard needs to bear down, our defense needs to play more conservatively, and overall discipline needs vast improvement after 40. You can tell the moment the opposition starts to get some zone time and the Wings start playing nervous and turning over pucks. After that its just a matter of time. Get it fixed, Babs!

This game pretty much went what I anticipated.
Bounce back next game...we control our future.

I thought Scrivins doing his best impersonation of a "Sweater Cannon" was the better story, especially when you factor in his comments following the game:
Another highlight? That's easy:

The players on the ice and the front office disrespect that jersey more then the drunk fan who threw it ever could.

I agree in keeping that new kid line together, they always seem to make things happen. I want so badly to love glendening but him on the same line as abs might be a line that will rarely score.


We aren't putting them on the ice to score. We would already have three scoring lines. They are there to shut down people and kill penalties.  A line of Abelkader,Helm,Glendening would be as close as we could currently get to the "Grind Line" of old.
