#2508071 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Posted by Dabura on 09 April 2014 - 09:18 PM

this really bothers me If we cant get a point tonight I am worried what team will show up against Carolina because if we don't win that one than I think we are f***ed I hate when the annoncers talk about playoff tickets on sale this is not the 1990s we didn't lock up two months ago stop jinxing us

 

We've played a very solid game overall. It's the little things, as it always is with us.

We've pretty much given this game to them. Two bad penalties and a dumb-ass goal.

I think with the Wings missing two key guys and the way Columbus has been playing lately, the Pens probably fear the Jackets more than the Wings.

 

I guarantee the Pens want the Jackets. They won the regular season series 5-0. The Jackets have never won a playoff game. The Jackets have been winning, but so have the Wings.

 

The Wings are scarier on almost every level.

People around here talk as if the wings have the worst team in the league, but when I talk to fans of other teams they have a different opinion. Many people are saying they are one of the scariest teams going into the playoffs

 

Things have actually been remarkably positive around here. We all seem to be on the same page in believing the Wings could do some damage.

I hate the Pens, but I'm really happy Letang is back on the ice.

 

Same. Good for him, good for hockey.

#2506885 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by Dabura on 06 April 2014 - 02:37 PM

Because there are other forwards who can play defense who bring more offensively too.  One dimensional is one dimensional, it doesn't matter if the guy is all offense and no defense like Leino, or all defense and no offense like Glendening.  The comparisons to Matlby and McCarty are nice, but not accurate.

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Jurco

Nyquist-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Helm-Weiss

Miller-Sheahan-Abdelkader

 

That's 12 forwards better than Glendening.  Andersson is also more skilled and good defensively, although Glendening is far more aggressive and adds something that Andersson doesn't, but so does Callahan, and Callahan has shown better hands than Glendening.  I'd rather see Andersson and Callahan as the reserve forwards, and Glendening sent to GR as a call up.

 

I'm still failing to see the issue with Glendening. He's excelling as a shutdown center and agitator, he's been generating offense and chances, and now he's finally potted one. Callahan's a winger, and I tend not to put much stock in how good a fourth-liner's hands are. If we were absolutely starved for goals, I'd be worried. But we have firepower up front, even without Z.

 

I suppose this is sort of moot, though, because I mostly agree with your lineup. Indeed, I've found it pretty much impossible to squeeze any one of Andersson/Glendening/Callahan into all the different "ideal" lines I've been toying with. I've wanted Jurco on the top line with Z and D for a long while now; I believe our current top line would be dangerous as a second line; I'd have Weiss on the wing on the third line; and I'd want all of Helm, Sheahan, Tatar, Miller, and Abdelkader on the roster. And, I really do want Alfredsson back. I might swap in Alfredsson for Abdelkader, who hasn't impressed me this season.

 

I might hesitate to break up the kid line - but now I'm really straying from the topic. Glendening is awesome.

Wait, are you telling me we failed to convert on a crucial extended PP and then immediately surrendered a backbreaking goal? WHEN DOES THIS EVER HAPPEN
