#2453717 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by Dabura on 14 November 2013 - 04:38 PM

Here's to hoping Tatar and Nyquist are up for good next season

 

I was hoping no one would say these words. Because we said these same words last season, and even as recently as this past summer. And some of us even managed to convince ourselves that it was absolutely, positively going to happen. Because, how could it not?

Remember when rooting for the Wings was a blast? Lately it feels like masochism. Which can, I guess, be a blast...but you know what I'm saying.

 

CLEARY ME HARDER, BABY

OHHH YEAH, RIGHT IN THE QUINCEY

The case can be made that Tatar deserves top-six minutes.

Personally, I think Pierre let out a really, really wicked fart. Or he flat-out crapped his pants.

Do: Occasionally react to an especially big goal by skating over to the boards and slamming your body into the end glass.
Do not: Attempt this move unless you're sure that you're leaping into actual glass and not just something that's convincingly glass-like, such as Carlo Colaiacovo.

 




#2453413 Speculation regarding Franzen's ailment

Posted by Dabura on 13 November 2013 - 09:51 AM

Ken briefly alluded to effects of medications for his upper body injury.  Maybe he had the poops.  I sure would leave a game and not come back, miss a flight, and take time off if that was my problem.  I also wouldn't want to talk about it to the media.

 

This is, I think, the first time I've seen the poops referred to as well, "the poops." I laughed, and now I feel like a seven-year-old. Thank you for bringing out my inner child.

It just occurred to me: pretty much every one of our forwards not named Datsyuk or Zetterberg, and maybe Alfredsson, could be considered a bottom-six forward. Meaning: our top-six blows. Which I guess we already knew, but yeah.

I really hate taking credit for OT losses. In all reality this team is 9-10 right now. They've only won 9 out of their first 19 games. It's 20 games into the season and this is where you can tell who's who. And the Wings don't look foreal. They're nothing more than a mediocre team.

 

We're not even mediocre. I wouldn't trust this team to score a single goal against the Sabres or Panthers, let alone beat them.

Helm is nyquist without the offensive potential

 

And Helm is much more physical, gritty.

I hate Quincey.

They just announced Team Canada's lineup. Cleary is on the first line.

Kyle Quincey kills me.

It may not have seemed like it, but that was an absolutely godawful period. We didn't do a single thing right, except score a goal off a gift-wrapped turnover. We're not playing our possession game. We have no structure. We're not making tape-to-tape passes. We're not establishing a heavy forecheck, or, really, any kind of sustained pressure at all. We are an ungodly mess in the neutral zone, and our own zone, turning the puck over at very nearly every single opportunity.

 

There is arguably not a single team in the league playing as poorly as we've been playing.

Let's turn the puck over more.
