#2252376 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 04 February 2012 - 11:13 PM

There were times in the first period that our guys looked like an AHL team. No chemistry, iffy passing, and NO idea what to do with the puck. And the five on three?! Downright scary at times.

Yep, Mule looks like he doesn't give a s***, the passing has been off the marks all game long, Z looks like he is skating in sand. Hell I've been more impressed with Homer than most of our top players. His passing is way better than some of our top wingers.

I think people are forgetting that Kronwall was standing still on the first goal scored while Stuart was out of position. And you all expect Ty to stop redirects so close? No one was even getting Gagner out the way. Let's just leave a guy alone who was dominate last game and is showing signs of doing the same thing tonight. Pretty stupid on the Wings part.

I would've cried like a little baby at the end of the game if I was one of those players.

To bad they cannot outright fire Semin

#2228240 Crosby coming back

Posted by dragonballgtz on 20 November 2011 - 11:03 PM

I hope he gets (legally) freight-trained in his first game back.

I have no doubt that someone will take a run at him.

#2226316 Online movement to get Eaves on the PP

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 November 2011 - 10:00 PM

At this point put Abby, Helm, and Eaves all out there while on the PP. I would rather see their crash the net style instead of this weak passing no movement PP we been icing.

#2225454 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by dragonballgtz on 15 November 2011 - 06:30 AM

Okay and for the millionth time, in the NHL RULEBOOK, they are not fair game. Period. Its really not that hard to understand.

Did I say they were fair game? I said they SHOULD be fair game.

My sentence wasn't that hard to understand.

Goalies should be fair game when they come that far out.

There is no need to come around that corner with that much speed knowing the defenseman will be in a vulnerable situation. He had an opposing player right behind him, which the player looked worried about, then to have this guy come around like that... no need at all.

Bertuzzi not playing!! :siren:

yeah buddy! lol

Brunnstrom has been recalled and will play tonight



Would rather have Bert in tonight considering the opponent. Just one less tough player the Ducks have to worry about. :thumbdown:


Tough LOL!!!!

#2222817 Unbiased Assessment of Each Player

Posted by dragonballgtz on 04 November 2011 - 05:04 PM

Pavel Datsyuk: (B) Historically, Datsyuk is a slow starter, but this season seems extra slow for him. He just seems off. A lot of bad passes and poor shot selection. His backchecking has been typical of him (meaning incredible), but he is a -5 right now. Unacceptable for Datsyuk. He does have 2 goals and 6 assists through the first 11 though, so his production is on par as always, but defensively, he needs to step his game up.

Jiri Hudler: (C+) Here's the problem with Hudler, if he isn't playing in the top six, he won't contribute. This isn't 2008 or 2009 when he was playing on the third line with Filppula and Samuelsson (which for the record is a incredible third line).You can't stick him with Abdelkader or Bertuzzi and expect him to produce. That's not his game. The bottom line is that he needs to play with Datsyuk. That will probably be the only way he will play to his potential. Overall I don't think he has been as bad as everyone thinks. He's been working hard and has logged 2 goals and 2 assists and a plus 1 rating in 10 games, which is a little below where you would like to see him at this point, but production is down across the board. What worries me is two things: First, his 12 PIM (way too high for him) and second, he only has 10 shots in 10 games. Definitely needs to shoot the puck more.

Henrik Zetterberg: (C-) 2 goals, 2 assists, and -6. That should pretty much speak for itself. What is going on with Zetterberg? Is it just that he has simply lost a step? Is he not the player he used to be? Even when playing with Datsyuk he couldn't get anything going, even with a ridiculous 48 shots. I wouldn't be surprised if he was injured.

Valtteri Filppula: (A-) I know a lot of people on this forum like to hate on Fil, but at the end of the day, he has been on of our best players. He started off the season on fire, then like everyone else, went cold. His defensive play has been solid (per usual) and he has even contributed much more than he should offensively with 2 goals, 5 assists and a plus 3 rating through 11 games. The stat that really sticks out for me is that he has 20 shots (just as much as Franzen).

Johan Franzen: (B) 20 shots for The Mule is unacceptable. He is our best goal scorer and needs to start acting like it. He does have 4 goals and 3 assists so far, which is on par for his usual season, but I feel like over the last few seasons his scoring has become much more inconsistent. For now, we'll just blame it on the whole team playing poorly.


I know this is your opinion but there is no way that Flip and Franzen should have those grades. Datsyuk would be a C, Z an F, Mule F, Flip D. They had this issue last year with just disappearing no way that is acceptable this year.

#2222606 This team screams for a trade

If the Wings make a deal for Morrow I don't know how I will describe my satisfaction.

Would it go something like...

#2221922 First 10 Games

Posted by dragonballgtz on 03 November 2011 - 01:11 PM

February 7-29 2008 the Wings went 1-8-2.

See, now you have an argument.

IMO though this team has got worse instead of better the past couple of years.

#2221901 Bertuzzi SUCKS

Posted by dragonballgtz on 03 November 2011 - 12:35 PM

I actually like Bertuzzi, a lot, but he has been absolutely horrendous this season. And as edi just said, he's got to realise the refs target him, so he's got to play smarter.

This season? Try 3 seasons.
