#2580564 3/9 GDT : Oilers 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by kipwinger on 10 March 2015 - 09:45 AM

Despite it not seeming like the Wings are playing that well they do have the 2nd best win% in the NHL in games that end before the shootout.

 

There could be some small errors in here. I'm just bored at work with nothing to do so I calculated this real fast.

 

Rank Team ROW ROL RO-WP%

1 NYR 37 19 66.07%

2 DET 34 19 64.15%

3 MON 36 21 63.16%

4 NAS 36 21 63.16%

5 TB 39 23 62.90%

6 NYI 36 22 62.07%

7 ANA 34 21 61.82%

8 PIT 35 22 61.40%

9 STL 33 21 61.11%

10 VAN 34 26 56.67%

11 CHI 30 24 55.56%

12 BOS 31 25 55.36%

13 WAS 33 27 55.00%

14 MIN 33 28 54.10%

15 CAL 32 28 53.33%

16 LA 29 27 51.79%

17 SJ 30 29 50.85%

18 WGP 27 28 49.09%

19 OTT 26 28 48.15%

20 FLD 22 27 44.90%

21 PHI 25 32 43.86%

22 DAL 26 34 43.33%

23 NJ 24 32 42.86%

24 COL 22 32 40.74%

25 CBJ 23 36 38.98%

26 CAR 21 34 38.18%

27 TOR 23 38 37.70%

28 ARI 16 41 28.07%

29 EDM 13 44 22.81%

30 BUF 12 44 21.43%

 

EDIT: Sorry this pasted awful compared to how it looked before.

 

Until recently they hadn't lost two in a row in regulation.  So the high win percentage in regulation stands to reason. 

 

I don't think anyone would argue that the Red Wings are a bad team.  However, IMO there are a few weak points to our game that I'd like to see us tighten up before the playoffs roll around.  Most recently, we've been starting games late and generally look aloof during the first period.  Our 5-on-5 scoring is only average and we seem overly reliant on special teams play for offense.  I'm still not sold on our transition game, and turnovers seem to still be a problem at times. 

 

I'm hoping that between now and the playoffs we can figure out the best line and defense pairs to ice, and that the additions of Cole and Zidlicky will allow us to get people slotted for maximum efficiency.  Barring any serious injuries I don't see why we wouldn't be able to improve in some of these areas. 




#2580237 Gus injured; Mrazek re-called

Posted by kickazz on 09 March 2015 - 05:17 PM

I was pretty anti-Howard back when we still had Lidstrom. But after his playoff performance in 2013, I was pretty impressed by Jimmys play, he was def the MVP end of that season and post season. Point is, Jimmy has it in him. He has A LOT of weak points, but he is pretty solid overall. I think Mrazek is the alpha to his omega. Mrazek is strong at things Jimmy is weak at (puck movement, closing off tight gaps when players come around the corner, etc). I believe both of them will complement each other very well and could be a dynamic duo after this season if we let Gus walk. Babcock could easily use Mrazek over Jimmy with certain teams that he believes they need a 3rd defenseman moving the puck around with.

Unacceptable. I defend Weiss a lot, but he needs a seat.




#2579636 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by ogreslayer on 06 March 2015 - 10:50 PM

You can retain up to 50% cap hit on 2 or 3 contracts. The dollar amount is irrelevant.

 

It's actually up to 50% of 3 contracts at a time & the total dollar amount can't exceed 15%, or $10.35m this season, of the upper cap limit so overall dollar amounts are very much relevant.

I have my head up the azz of hockeysfuture.com as much as the next Red Wings fan, and I love my prospects, but this deal was a home run. Wtf are people complaining about?

#2576365 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Predators 3

Posted by rick zombo on 28 February 2015 - 07:14 PM

Just saw highlights ... great fast paced game.  Those Preds have a lot of players with big shots ... great win!!

 

So are we the only team that has not lost 2 in a row in regulation at home ... or did we break that streak already?  

 

We are the only team yes. Nashville’s streak was broken today.
