#2517239 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

I get the impression Alfie will never win a cup.  This playoffs it looked like he wanted his team to get the cup for him more than he wanted to get it for himself.  He wasn't very good, and I was extremely excited when he came at the beginning of the year.

 

Lower back pain can do that to you. I know from 15+ years of experience.

 

About Mantha - I'm not saying I think he's fully ready. Certainly I wouldn't expect him to be a key player right away. I'm just looking at our window with Z and D and K, and...it's closing. The future's pretty much here anyway. Might as well open the door. (Within reason, of course.)

Agreed. He's a very good bottom 6-er. I can see Babcock's thinking, but it doesn't work. Hopefully, whether its Mantha or an FA, we can get a proper threat on the first line next year.

 

I've thought about it lately, and I think I want Mantha on the team straight out of camp. Let's just go all in with the youth, get them as much time with Z and D and maybe Alfie as possible.

I'm borderline ashamed of the Detroit Red Wings. Even with all the stuff we had going against us, we really just laid down and died in this series.

Again I ask: What does Tom Renney actually do?

Oh God, not this hope business.

Hey, guess what. We had a power play and we didn't convert.

Fire Holland

 

cut Franzen/Lashoff/Kindl/Weiss/Sammy/Cleary.  don't resign Bert or Alfie.  Dangle Howard as trade bait.

 

Blow it up.  Bring in a new GM (Jarmo in Columbus would be epic for this franchise and I think they could get him too) and rebuild.

 

Why would Jarmo jump ship? He's got a good thing going in Columbus.

If we had just a half-decent power play, we'd be in this series.


Remember when the Wings were feared because of their ability to move the puck?  Yeah...seems like forever ago

 

Losing Lidstrom and Rafalski and replacing them with Quincey will do that.

If Franzen would actually skate he wouldnt have to grab someones shoulder. Grabbing a players shoulder like that in plain view is a penalty 100% of the time regardless of if there was a dive.

 

He shouldn't even be flirting with it. Just keep your hands to yourself, ride the momentum we've built up for ourselves.

 

But no. The one time we need him to "just be," he decides to go and do something.

 

F*** him.

Datsyuk has scored over 50% of our goals this series. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

 

Greedy Russian.

Somebody better get fired for this effort.

 

I'd like to know what Renney actually does.

I'm just being annoying now, but this series is why I wasn't opposed to adding Chris Stewart for cheap. Yeah, he's Christ Stewart. But he'd be running Rask.

Geico's commercials insult me. I know I'm supposed to find them funny, but I never laugh. I rarely even smile.

 

Fire Geico. 0 goals, 0 assists this series.

You know which Wing has really impressed me in this series?
