#2443341 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Babs did say Franzen is supposed to be the second line's key piece, i.e. its success hinges on Franzen more than it does Weiss or Alfredsson (in theory).

Thoughts.

 

1. Last night we were exposed by a brilliant, ballsy coach and a hungry, disciplined team. Tippett realized our blue line is actually garbage in its own zone, so he "pinch shifted" his entire team forward, putting our young, bumbling D under extreme pressure and duress, and, in turn, completely stunting our attack. I call this strategy "salting the earth." Kill the the ground, the soil, the ultimate foundation...and nothing will grow. It was incredible to see. We can only hope other teams don't try the same thing, because if they do, we're screwed.

 

2. Smith and Quincey may be the worst pairing in the league. One of them needs to sit for a game or two or three or four hundred. Brutal. Terrible. Garbage.

 

3. We have so many borderline useless fourth-line scrubs on this team. Get off your lazy ass, Holland, and do whatever it takes to get Nyquist back in this lineup ASAP. At the very least, we're sorely missing his speed.

 

4. Babs needs to get over his fear/hatred of kids. Play Tatar, let him run wild on a new Kids Line with Nyquist and Andersson.

 

5. Through four games we've played, like, 40 good minutes, if that. Wonderful.

Best goal ever.

Heard he got 3 games.

 

For unnecessary rising upwards, extension outwards...the dreaded, much frowned-upon "boner check."

Go Blues. I hate them less.

All jokes aside, I really don't like our bottom six. It's like, we finally get an awesome top six (and I guess the jury is still out on that, though I do think it'll ultimately become one of the best in the league. Because I say so), and the bottom "bottoms out." mehhhhhh

Great goal, unreal night but tune down the over the top celebrations they aren't well received in hockey.

 

O plz.

And after 2 games he's on 3rd line again despite scoring.

 

At least the team is winning!




#2442630 Will young talent ever speak out against Wings philosophy?

Posted by Dabura on 08 October 2013 - 09:11 AM

I am sort of torn here. We could be a team like the Oil and be on a 7 season playoff drought trying by trying to play all of our young kids or we can be like the wings and be on a 22 season playoff streak doing what we do.

 

Is there no in between?

 

Does giving a couple young guns more ice time necessarily mean the end of our playoff streak?

If he keeps scoring like this, he'll have every team's best guys on him every shift of every game. If he can contine to score through all that, then I'll say we lost out on a real gem.
