#2452379 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Dabura on 09 November 2013 - 07:56 PM

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.

Also, I've always liked the idea of Helm centering the second line. So I'm excited about that, among other things (e.g. Cleary being where he belongs).

 

Obviously Babs is trying to "speed things up." I think Stamkos is literally faster than a speeding train.

And Mike Babcock has officially lost his mind.

I turned the game off because I thought I was jinxing things. As soon as it was off, Dats scored.

 

I deserve an assist.

Sammy on the top line? Are you serious?

He should have got a tripping penalty too.  Last game in Winnipeg I was pretty much trashing Quincey and Cleary all game and cheering for Helm and DeKeyser.  The 2 good guys made me less angry about the super scrubs.  We need to lose Q and Cleary asap and this team would be a contender with Nyquist and Ouellet.  Smith is on a short leash no doubt with guys like Ouellet, Almqvist and Sproul in our deep D system.

 

Q should be moved. I don't care how. Smith should be converted to forward. Almqvist should be a regular.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Ericsson - Kindl

Lashoff - Almqvist

 

Sproul and Ouellet move up on the depth chart.

 

Boom.

Have I mentioned yet today that he sucks?

 

He's clutch-suck; when he screws up, it kills his team.

Damn.


Can we waive Quincey?

Jimmy Howard is the best goalie in the NHL.


Holy crap, we look good right now.
