Weiss had a great game. Just wanted to say.

Tatar is awesome.

Who's the guy who said a few pages back that we need two in the second? That guy is awesome.

 

Now we just need a Weiss hatty.

We're an average team. It's depressing.




#2448862 What's Killing Our Offense?

Subban is exactly what we need. A young, gifted, right-handed offensive defenseman who could singlehandedly rekindle our offense. I fully expect him to re-sign with the Habs, though.

A guy who makes Franzen look like Ovie? Not for almost 6 million a year.

 

Yeah, our blue line is already stacked enough as it is.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Smith - Quincey

Kindl - Lashoff

 

Who are you going to move/demote for P.K. Subban, reigning Norris Trophy winner? Maybe Quincey, but he's been nothing but solid for us since we traded a first round pick for him.

 

Bottom line, we're brimming with all-star offensive defensemen. What we really need is a quality goaltender.

Also, according to the morning skate Quincey and Smith on D pairing #2..... :( SAY IT AINT SO BABS!!

 

I'm actually kind of warming to that pairing, because it means their idiocy is confined to only one pairing, and also because I've been thinking Kronwall - Dekeyser has the potential to be a really awesome first pair.


And also, Kindl hasn't been all that great, so I'm ok with him being on the third pairing.


Also, I want to say the word "pairing" again.


Patty Eaves is back!

 

 

I like him a lot. Can't wait to have him and Helm killing some penalties together and grinding on the fourth line.

 

Lines tonight:

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Weiss-Alfredsson
Tatar-Andersson-Abdelkader
Miller-Glendening-Eaves

 

Go Wings!

 

Suddenly I'm really liking our bottom six. Now just imagine how great it'd be with Helm and Nyquist.

The six best Ryan Kesler tumbleweed gifs

 

Also, we're probably going to lose.

In all fairness Fetisov, Chelios and Larionov were rather awful before they finally retired.

 

What's to stop Chris Chelios from punching you in the face?

Babcock asked how he will handle the #canucks top line with Kesler in the mix: "we'll see who's handling who"

 

Mike Babcock is awesome.

Except Filppula went back to his old ways last year and played like a peewee turd so the Wings let him go.  In Tampa, he's currently playing like a guy that's worth 5 mil.  Last year he was playing like a guy who deserved 1.5 mil.

 

Flip had all the time and opportunities and resources in the world to prove he was an essential part of this team going forward. But he disappointed, season after season after season. Many - if not most - nights he was practically invisible. Potential's great, but at some point you have to deliver, and he hadn't delivered in line with what he was demanding in coin and term.

 

"Yeah, but there was that one season!"

 

OK, great. There was that one season - which, sort of strangely, wasn't his contract year. Which sort of makes you wonder. Maybe Flip wasn't especially happy here. As opposed to this notion that he was carrying the team on his back and would've played for free if it meant staying a Detroit Red Wing, but no, we kicked him out the door as hard as we possibly could and said NEVER COME BACK, cold as that.

 

As for Weiss - I've said it before and I'll say it again: I've seen my fair share of Panthers hockey, and my humble assessment of Weiss - before we were even talking about him here as a possible Flip replacement - was, and remains, this: he's good. Really good. He's having a hard time adjusting to a new system and getting back into the swing of things after having missed a lot of time due to surgery. Ultimately, he's going to be good for us. I really have no good reason to believe otherwise. And, come on, Zetterberg's never had a cold streak?

I thought moving to the East would help the Wings, less travel, fresh division, new opponents, but no.

 

It's been twelve games, dude. Four of those were against Western teams. We went 1-2-1 against them. Against the Eastern teams, on the other hand, we've gone 5-2-1. The two losses were absolute no-shows (as opposed to games in which we, say, gave our all but came up short against clearly superior teams), and, actually, so was the overtime loss.

 

Once we get rolling, we'll be fine.
