#2606610 ECSF : (4) Washington Capitals vs. (1) New York Rangers

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 May 2015 - 06:31 PM

I have this feeling that I really want ovi to win a cup.
Especially now that he's playing defense and back checking.


I've always wanted him to win a cup


#2602659 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by kipwinger on 28 April 2015 - 10:33 AM


I'm not happy just sneaking into the playoffs. And since Nill and Bowman and Yzerman have left, we have struggled. Agree or disagree?

 

Lol.  Disagree.  Whole heartedly. 

 

Since Bowman left (2002) we've made the playoffs every single year, went to the finals twice, and won the Cup once. 

 

Since Yzerman left (2010) we've made the playoffs every single year.

 

Same with Nill (2013). 

 

You know who's struggled since Yzerman and Nill left?  Yzerman and Nill. 




#2602651 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Only on LGW does a GM "deserve blame" for building an almost entirely homegrown roster, making the playoffs for the zillionth time in a row, and being poised to upset a better team in the first round. 

 

The only thing Ken Holland hasn't done is play/coach the actual game itself. 

 

Has he made some mistakes over the years?  Sure.  Have those mistakes seriously inhibited our chances of being competitive?  The results certainly suggest otherwise.

 

Or is he supposed to make no mistakes whatsoever?

A discussion…Ha.

 

Most of the prospects exist on many teams. i.e. Tampa Bay's T. Johnson.

 

Find me one team in the league that's had to draft from Detroit's position for the last 24 years that has better prospects. Feel free to use these as refernces

How about overpaying for Quincey?

 

Quincey's been good.

 

Resigned Cleary twice.

 

Kept his promise. Continues to exude organizational class. No harm done on the ice.

 

Overpaid and signed Franzen and Howard.

 

Franzen is not overpaid. Howard got fair value at the time. This is all on Howard for not keeping his end of the bargain.

 

Zidlicky is struggling badly.

 

Meh. Babcock has other options if he wants to use them. Kindl, for example. Didn't give up much to acquire him.

 

Nyquist looks small and lost out there.

 

Now you're just stretching

 

Never planned for Lidstrom's and Rafalski's departures. 

 

How can you? Without tanking like Florida, you're not getting an Ekblad or Jones or Hannafin. #tankit

 

Didn't figure out a way to keep Hossa.

 

IMO, his only major mistake.

 

Stephen Weiss is on the team but doesn't dress.

 

Holland's only other mistake. Part of that is on Babcock for not using him properly.

 

Does any of that ring a bell? Bother you?

 

Just the Hossa thing.




#2602559 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by wings_fanatic on 28 April 2015 - 01:52 AM

Aside from the fact that you can't tell the future, I'm not saying that Howard should start game 7, it's too late for that. But Howard at the top of his game (which he was at for most of the year) is better and more consistent overall that Mrazek, who has had two very bad games in this series. He won three games, yes, you're not all knowing so you can't say that Howard would not have also won the games.

 

Completely agreed. That doesn't mean I think Mrazek should be playing over Howard.


What series have you been watching? Mrazek has played better in this series than Jimmy has played in any series. Keep in mind Jimmy also had Lidstrom and raFi for a few seasons as well. Mrazek has been our best player and was not the reason we lost last night at all.

But but but....Mrazek doesn't have any playoff experience!


For the love of god, stop trying to start s*** and enjoy the playoff experiance.

On paper I think TB is a better team, but there is that veteran determination that guys like Dats, Z and Kronwall always display.  Plus I think Babcock is dominating in the coaching department.

 

Good thing games aren't played on paper. Wings were outed by a lot of teams that had no business beating us in the past.

 

Full cycle.

Babcock is outcoaching the hell out of Cooper. A testament to why he needs to stay. Our roster isn't as good as it's performing against a team like Tampa. This is coming down to goaltending, heart and coaching. I hope we win the next game to make it a 4-2 series and make everyone who wrote the Wings off feel stupid.

Well I don't think I'll argue about Abby's place on this team ever again.

Did Kronwall just try to Kronwall callahan???

 

Yes, that is my wish lol.

That wasn't a penalty.  Babcock needs to stop bitching, and Dekeyser needs to not go down so easily.  




#2595230 Game Two - Honest Discussion

Posted by Son of a Wing on 17 April 2015 - 12:26 PM

So you thought Tatar and Nyquist looked good. They just didn't play because of match ups? 

 

Did any forwards look good aside from Datsyuk, Helm and Glendening?
