Is Kyle Quincey ever not on the ice for a goal against?

 

No. I hate him.

Interesting: they're not showing the game highlights on NHL Tonight. Just the shootout, in its entirety.


@FSDwakiji: #RedWings Howard on Quick: We were just discussing what we were going to do over in Sochi together, who we were going to bring.

@FSDwakiji: #RedWings Howard on Quick: I told him I was bringing my parents and my sister & I asked him who he was bringing so it was a good discussion.

 

"Oh, really? I'm bringing your sister too!"

"Why I oughta--"

Watching Hitchcock's presser. He takes every loss incredibly seriously. I like that about him.

The more I think about it, the more perfect this win is.

 

- Richards being the big tough guy, scoring a goal and trying to start something with our goalie...and then being the final shooter in the shootout.

 

- Kronner's redemption. That penalty was total bulls***. Only right that he should get the equalizer a few seconds later, and on the PP. (We scored a PP goal!)

 

- Tats getting to salute his father against the Kings a second time, this time at home.

 

- Our refusal to take any s*** from one of the bigger, better teams in the league.

 

- Howard getting right up in Quick's grill, telling him he wants the starting job in Sochi.

 

- Scoring three goals! We scored three goals! (Sort of!)

So insanely glad we won this one. We showed some real backbone, resilience. F*** yeah.

I hate this season. Following the Wings is supposed to be fun.

at least howard = lundqvist

 

Say wah? I'd take Lundqvist any day of the week.

Original 6 dude....brings out the best in the teams when they play each other.  Fight for team tradition and to have a leg up in the all time versus record.

 

Agreed. I think it helps that we're so ludicrously close to each other in the standings. And I do think Jimmy wants to outplay The King in New York.

This feels like a playoff game. Love it!

Man, is Jimmy playing like a hoss or what?

Night n day from last month to now.

 

He wants to show up all these top goalies! Quick, Lundqvist, Hiller....

You really notice him out there.  And it's noticing for a positive reason.  That kid flat out has skill.

 

It's the skill, but he also works his ass off. And you can tell he sees the ice exceptionally well.

We can't buy a goal.


Cleary on top PP, Sammy on top PP... wtf

 

Lull the opposition into a false sense of security, then BAM! JURCO.


Love Jurco.




#2473346 Andersson out...Emmerton up

Posted by Dabura on 16 January 2014 - 06:36 PM

Callahan isn't a center.

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 

Wings have recalled center Cory Emmerton from Grand Rapids for tonight's game at the Rangers. Checking to see who's injured.

.

.

.

.

 

Joakim Andersson is out with a lower-body injury. He's listed as day to day.

 

Now they're just trolling us.


No Tatar?? He isn't listed on any injury reports...thought his father's funeral already took place but I'm starting to think that's not the case.

 

He's in Slovakia, funeral-related. It was decided before our last game that he'd be missing this one.




#2473215 2010-2011 drafts will be our savior

Posted by Dabura on 15 January 2014 - 09:10 PM

I'm pretty high on our prospect pool. Why? Becase the talent, yes, but mostly because we're good at picking and developing. I get that we don't have any obvious SUPERSTARS!!! in the immediate pipeline, but...when was the last time we really did? I mean guys that we KNEW were going to be HUGE. Franzen has been a consistent top-six producer and was a force to be reckoned with earlier in his NHL career. Was anyone jumping for joy when we drafted him? Kid SUPERSTARS!!! are exceedingly rare. And they haven't been our bread and butter for awhile now. We try to get a number of solid players and one or two gems. That's doable. Hell, Tatar's already making a case for himself as a future 40-goal scorer. As a point of comparison, Franzen had 16 points in his first season with the Wings (12 goals, 4 assists).

 

About Pulkkinen, because everyone seems to hate him - he's Nyquist-quick, is a pure sniper (something we absolutely, positively do not have on the current roster), and competes very, very hard (e.g. can take a lot of abuse and just keep on going). Small? You bet. Facing a real uphill battle at the NHL level? Without a doubt. But every player starts as a prospect. (Terrible argument, I know.)


I expect sheahan to be here next year with glendening (unfortunately)

 

What's wrong with Glendening? I like what he's brought to the team. Hasn't scored, but he's not going to be a scorer at the NHL level. He's going to be a bottom-six grinder. There's a bit of Helm in him.
