Exactly. People are going to lose their s*** over a guy that played 17 games last season and probably would play even less under Blashill. He's a veteran presence in the locker room that the Red Wings feel they need to take care of, for better or worse. His impact as a hockey player will not have any affect on the team going forward.
He sucks as a hockey player. The Detroit Red Wings are a hockey team, get the f*** off the team already...
Why all the hate on Jurco? I get he wasn't the best of the call ups, be he also was the youngest and had the least amount of experience. Watching him in GR (my limited times in the playoffs) it seemed like the puck just followed up. He has size and skill, he will put it together.
Yeah, if only the Wings could be like the LA Kings, you know, they win every year and never are in danger of missing the playoffs. Or maybe the Blackhawks. A team like that wouldn't fall into a wildcard spot. I mean, really, Holland should've had the foresight to get a star goaltender like Devan Dubnyk.
I can't imagine how exhausting it must be to have such unrealistic expectations and the constant negativity as a result. I don't love the Wings losing, but I think there are fan bases of twenty or so other teams who wouldn't mind having a team like the Red Wings.
Dude we need to win every game by 10 or else everyone on the team sucks
lol look at Kindl's stats this season compared to Brendan Smith's. Kindl has 1 more point and more goals despite playing less than half of the games of Smith. Also Kindl is a + player compared to Brendan's -
Smith is young and has had a revolving door of partners, I think he has gotten better since he's been with Zilidicky, what's Ericssons excuse? Also if we are picking apart young dman, why is Dekeyser also immune?
Wow people are really freaking out. We played like absolute s*** the last 2 games and almost beat both teams. Tatar/Jurco just need to adjust, hell it seems as though you can see those 2 slowly emerging from their slumps. Calm down everyone
