Ozzie and Roy fight, calling it now

 

Vernon will scale down from the rafters.

Also: Tootoo was great!




#2444660 % Chance that Monster can Survive B2B Games?

Posted by Dabura on 15 October 2013 - 01:23 PM

i think monster will be fine, where even though it is back to back starts, it is only his second start of the season. the bigger question imo is how much the wings have left in the tank after yesterdays game. they need to come out swining bin case they start to look sluggish in the 3rd. 

 

i know it is hard to change a winning line up, but i figured with all the extra forwards, this game would have been a good one to get some fresh legs on the ice. 

 

I figure the fourth line, which should be pretty fresh, might get some more time than usual. Glendening has shown he can be pretty reliable, Tootoo has looked good, and Miller is Miller. Beyond Gaborik, no huge offensive threats that need to be shadowed, IMHO.

Lucic says he's never seen Detroit's Gustavsson play better

Monster will be in net tonight.

 

Thanks, Nev! I don't record the games on Gamecenter (actually, can you even do that?), and I was kinda kicking myself at several points in the game. Really entertaining game overall.

 

And that's exactly what I was thinking right before and after Weiss's goal - Franzen hustled!!!

 

What kills me about Franzen is that he used to hustle all over. He was known as a fast player. He worked very hard. And good things happened because of it. That's what makes the laziness so infuriating. And then you see sequences like this one and it's like, Dude! Do that more often!

#2444603 Tomas Hertl

You know what I really like about the guy? He goes to the net.

 

Look at his goals - all are scored from the crease area (except for maybe one? Can't quite remember.)

 

Of course, it helps that he's big. But still.

Are you guys suggesting that the refs wanted Boston to win?  Or that they missed calls. 

 

I'll agree that some of the calls were poor, but you're taking a huge leap to suggest that they either wanted Boston to win, or wanted Detroit to lose.

 

Conspiracy theories are stupid.

 

It was obvious they wanted the Bruins to win. I know how childish that sounds, but it's true. Even my Bruins fan friend agrees, and that's saying something.

 

Brad Watson hates the Wings, IMHO.




#2444162 Trade Proposal

Ryan Callahan is a perfect example of what the Wings need. Especially with Helm out constantly.

 

Agreed.

 

Secretly I'm hoping the Rangers lose the rest of their games this season and we somehow get Callahan and Girardi in the offseason.

 

I'm a dreamer.




#2444095 Edler trade proposal

Posted by Dabura on 14 October 2013 - 04:39 AM

I'd be very surprised if Smith was involved, unless Holland wanted more than just Edler coming our way.

Huge game. Would love a win.




#2444004 Luke Glendening?

Posted by Dabura on 13 October 2013 - 04:16 PM

He made that great steal near the end.

 

Liked what he brought to the PK.




#2444002 Trade Proposal

Posted by Dabura on 13 October 2013 - 04:11 PM

Franzen + Smith (+ something?) for something good.

 

Would you do that for, say, a really high-end defenseman? Maybe, say, an Ekman-Larsson? (The Coyotes need a goal-scorer like no one's business, and they're well aware of what Franzen can do.)

 

Or would there have to be more coming back the other way, like a defenseman and a forward, e.g. Edler and Kassian?

 

Discuss.

An earth-shattering observation: both of Datsyuk's goals - the Buffalo one and tonight's - were backhand bullets from roundabout the hash marks.

 

Also, I LOVED our first line tonight. LOVED. Keep Bertuzzi there forever plz kthx.
