#2467630 Ericsson out 3-5 weeks with Fractured Ribs

Posted by Dabura on 24 December 2013 - 05:05 PM

This looks like a job for Dan Girardi.

To what end?  The way to show you care is by outplaying your opponent from the off, not punching them in the face because they're better than you.

 

Well said. I've never really understood that mentality. I get wanting to show pride and all that, but my impression - from watching and playing - is that it tends to make you look even more pathetic. You got thrashed, yo. Play hard to close it out, but don't throw a tantrum like the Anaheim Ducks are known to do (unless you're doing it on an internet forum after the fact!)

We need to get healthy, bottom line.

 

Totally agree.

 

...And yet, I can see a fully healthy Wings team putting in this same kind of performance. We've been doing this terrible-against-terrible-teams act for a long time.

Like that 0-5 beatdown last month?

 

Right.

 

The Isles have had our number for awhile now, Crymson.

Quincey for the Norris. He helps 29 teams in the league.

I love Kyle Quincey. And by love I mean hate.

Off topic but shouldn't it be Maple Leaves and not Maple Leafs

 

I think the reasoning is that "Leafs" is the plural of a specific thing, a specific leaf, namely the Canadian Maple Leaf. The players play for and represent that leaf.

 

But I'm not Canadian, so I'm probably wrong.




#2467306 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by Dabura on 23 December 2013 - 04:09 PM

My only concern is where will Sproul, Ouellet, Marchenko, Backman play in a few years? Sure you could take away Kindl, Lashoff, and Quincey but then you add Girardi that leaves only spot 6 and 7 open for the next 5 or so years. He IS what we need, but it handicaps us for the future I think and that is why holland won't do it. 

 

Not to sound like a bum, but 1) I want to win now, and 2) the prospects will end up wherever they end up.

That second line looks mighty interesting.

Does anyone seriously believe, a coach would throw so much F bombs in every speech?

 

Yes. Over the course of that retrospective Griffins championship video, Blashill drops about 900 f bombs.




#2467192 Weiss

Posted by Dabura on 22 December 2013 - 03:05 PM

This is my last straw with Weiss. If he comes back after the surgery and shows piss poor effort again I won't be looking for him to succeed here anymore. Can only hope this fixes him.

 

Surely there will be an adjustment period when he returns. At the very least, he'll be rusty.

 

As for this being the last straw for him, I don't think I can get behind that, because 1) you can't really do anything about injuries like this one (this isn't something Weiss should be reprimanded and held accountable for), and 2) it's possible he's been dealing with this, in some capacity, for longer than we might think. Is it just a coincidence that he started decently (at least in the effort and sticking-with-it department) but at some point became more like a zombie than an actual hockey player? Maybe, maybe not. Personally, I like the idea that this issue first popped up as the injuries were really starting to mount, so he felt obligated to suck it up and stick it out and step it up to cushion the blow of losing Zetterberg et al. - a decision which, while admirable, ultimately aggravated his condition and brought him to where he is now.

I'm really confused as to why LGWers hate the CBC abnouncers so much...

 

We're Red Wings fans. Irrationally hating everything about the Maple Leafs is in the job description.

How big is Monster's paddle save on Phaneuf? He doesn't make that (disgustingly awesome) save and I bet we lose.

So, for future reference, the way to get Dano's offense going is to injure the entire forward corps.


Don't worry guys.

 

Stephen Weiss will be our big deadline acquisition.  

 

I hate you. Because you're right.
