#2584040 3/22 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Whoever did the high stick to Jackman early should have strived for more damage.


I still haven't forgiven him for spotpicking Bykov back in 2003.  I would pull a McSorley on that jackal faced piece of s***.

No, Jurco just isn't being used properly.  He is NOT a 4th line checker...

Putting up better numbers than Andersson and Miller.  

#2583676 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by DickieDunn on 21 March 2015 - 10:39 AM

A few bad games isn't going to change his mind.


RE: Roster decisions.  Before Cleary's knees went bad, he was a hell of a complimentary player for skilled guys.  He was fast, he'd hit, and he had enough skill to keep up.  Babcock was just too stubborn to see that he was done before last year.


Andersson isn't much of a scoring line center, but he's not a checker either.  He's just one of those 'tweener guys who don't do anything really well.  He's a good reserve, but that's it.  He's had some limited success in that role though, so they might as well try it if Babcock won't put Weiss there.


They have Glendening to play checking center, they don't need Helm there.  He's done fine as a support player.  So has Abdelkader.


Modano didn't play because he came into camp out of shape, took forever to get back into playing shape and get any traction, and when he was starting to finally play better he had his wrist tendons severed right and never recovered.  Legwand had trouble learning the defensive system, which is a danger of any deadline trade.


Maybe he thinks calling out Cole will piss him off and light a fire.  I remember when Bowman singled out Shanahan after a bad run by the team even though everyone was playing like hot garbage, and the next game Shanny went apes***.

Wait, What? Our top pair d-men are bad? Well according to Babcock, Ericsson is our top line pairing guy.  Guess we cannot argue that then, can we? IMO, neither Ericsson nor Kronwall are legit top pairing guys.  Kronwall has no balls anymore, he needs to go back to being the Kronwaller than makes him effective, not this soft piece of jelly donut he has turned into.  Ericsson is, will and never was a top pairing  guy, it is still of my opinion, he could disappear today and Marchenko could step right into the lineup and Ericsson would not even be missed.  But I digress, because Babcock is "The Man" with the best hockey knowledge out there and knows how to put lines together in order to guarantee the best results! Sure had to love that Tatar-Andersson- Pukkinen line the last couple of games, what an insult to Tats and Pulkks...

That Nyquist dive is embarrasing to watch. He's been fined already, more coming.


To the game, when you guys look at our forward lineup, do you say "I think were scoring some goals tonight"? I don't. Mike needs to get over his obsession with playing scrubs. We need to start scoring some goals. Of all the playoff teams, we have the least amount of 5on5 goals. Can't rely on the PP so much and expect to win.

Ericsson was -1 today. The only Red Wing to be a minus in a 5-1 victory. Huh.

Did I miss something that absolutely stated Babcock isn't coming back?

No. You didn't miss anything. You simply lack the super-human ability to see the future that some other LGWs members are blessed with. With this power also comes greater hockey knowledge and an inflated value of one's own opinion.

The number 90 should be retired from use by any red wing after Weiss leaves us

What's the short recap on what I missed? I'm guessing we went up 2-0 then some ticky-tack calls led to the deficit.

#2567153 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by kipwinger on 30 January 2015 - 01:23 PM

Holy s***!  You know what this means? 


We've finally got a right shot defenseman! 


Also, this means Smith will get to play his natural side.  That should be a good way to boost his production. 

#2566547 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 January 2015 - 07:34 AM

There's no way we should trade either of these guys unless we're offered a trade that we cannot refuse, which won't happen. These guys aren't going anywhere and for good reason. They're two of our highest picks since Marty Lapointe, back in '91, both of these guys have future franchise player potential. Keep all of our young guys and prospects, stay the course, and we will once again be a annual Stanley Cup contender. Kenny has been patient with his players for his entire tenure, there's no reason to believe that would change. I don't think there's any chance he trades, Mantha, Larkin, Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Pulkkinen, Athanasiou, not at this point anyway. There value is only going to increase, so why not see what you have with these young guys before you decide which one's are keepers or which one(s) to ship out.

#2566546 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 January 2015 - 07:27 AM

Both will fill huge needs when their time comes. Mantha had the size and from all accounts are crazy quick release. Larkin is by far the best center prospect for the wings. If both can turn into solid top 6 contributors that would be really nice.

You cannot compare the two right now. One is playing against boys in college and the other is playing professionally against grown men.
