Not sure who to root for in the NJ vs NYR game. I want another team to lose hope for the last spot in the playoffs (NJ) but we dont need a team like NYR to get more points.

Everyone is bitching about Howard, but the players in front of him have looked like crap all game long.

If only the older vets were healthy this team would be deep.
Z and D on one line, the kid line, a weiss/legwand line, and a helm line.

That's a deep team.

Bert still has hands of gold, too bad he's old, slow and dumb.

People always say he is slow, but to me he looks fast out there. Must be a camera trick

You can tell the players like and/or respect Tim Thomas. We don't bowl him over when we easily could.

Z probably saved a goal right there. This is looking dicey.


I wouldn't want to hit Thomas either, dude is crazy!

1st star of the game easily goes to the Hockey Gods.

Quick we must make another sacrifice to keep them pleased.

#2471891 What is going on in Edmonton?

Horrible management, poor draft selections. They drafted forwards with all three first-overall picks they've had in the past four seasons, and they have consistently failed to provide sufficient veteran or physical presence, to ice a viable defensive corps, or to sign a reliable goaltender. The result is a very soft and inexperienced team that gives up goals in droves.


To make matters worse on the defensive front, Smid---undoubtedly the team's best defensive defenseman---was traded recently for peanuts in order to make room for Bryzgalov. That's just one example of how awful the management has been over the past six years. Others included trading Pronger for a wholly insufficient package, dealing Smyth for the same, and flubbing a trade of Comrie for Perry by insisting that the Ducks reimburse the Oilers for Perry's signing bonus. And so on. This only includes the mistakes that were made over Kevin Lowe. The Oilers are currently on their second incompetent GM since Lowe was sacked; Tambellini was horrible too.


To make matters worse for the


You can't put too much blame on the Edm staff for the Pronger fiasco.  That was just a bad situation Pronger and his family put them in.


As others have said, they have drafted top end talent, rushed them into the NHL, didn't provide good leadership (Hemsky leadershipr lol), and nver did anything to address their defense or goalie situation.

You guys are calling out Howard? Looking at the recap video on NHL, it looked like Howard gave the Wings a chance to get back in there. Sure the 2nd goal he would like to have back, but how about those PP saves, a 2 on 1 save, lack of defensive coverage in his own zone? Then you have Bert miss a wide open net, Tatar as well near the end. The 4th goal was one hell of a shot, not many goalies are going to stop a snipe that close and with so much time to shoot.

there you go Babcock, get the tying goal and follow up with Cleary....you're fired.


I wont lie, Cleary looked somewhat decent on that last rush. That Leafs player must be really slow because Cleary looked fast.

I will admit the compete part of Mantha's game scares me, but he can score.  I guess I feel similar in that if he has a couple years with the Wings he will have that level instilled in him.  I really want him to be a key on this team for years, so I hope he gets a lot of time just talking to Hank and Pav before they are gone.


He really does need a better level of competition. Right now he doesn't need to give it his all in order to dominate, just play a little smarter and away he goes.

Posted by dragonballgtz on 18 December 2013 - 02:56 PM

The following is why I blame the players way more than the NHL for these head shots/dirty plays.



That was just a stupid play to make. But let's hear the players complain about the NHL doing nothing about it, when it's the players themselves that are doing these stupid things.

#2462602 Howard = Average

Posted by dragonballgtz on 09 December 2013 - 09:00 PM



Howard is #1 in Detroit, I agree with what this guy is saying... in fact, I've said most of it at one time or another.  ;)


I love Monster, too, don't get me wrong - but he's the back up. 


Just wait until Mrázek gets up here. He will give Jimmy a run for his money

#2455626 Babcock performance thread

Posted by dragonballgtz on 20 November 2013 - 02:58 AM

Personally I think Babs is killing the offense with his system.  Guys that have left our team are starting to play like the players we needed them to be here. I look at Smith and just think, even though he was a defensive nightmare when he first came up, he doesn't even create plays like he use to when he first got here.


Your thoughts? And sorry if a thread like this already exists, it's 3AM and I am sleepy

#2453698 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by dragonballgtz on 14 November 2013 - 03:56 PM

How in the hell do they expect Tatar to get better? He cannot fix his game from the press box or just practice, he needs to play to learn the NHL level game.
