#2639648 Bigger nets ?

Posted by greenrebellion on 27 November 2015 - 02:24 PM

Why doesn't anyone understand that increasing rink size decreases scoring. It has been shown to lead to more perimeter play and fewer scoring chances.

Pulk is pretty much one dimensional, but 4 on 3 in OT would be his dimension!

Not really true. A game here and there, but not plenty of time.


Nope, look at his linemate times last season.

Holland has lost his marbles. 30 million in guaranteed money is absurd for a one time 20 goal scorer who will be on the wrong side of 30 for most of his contract.

Between this, Weiss, kindl, green and E... This guy really just doesn't have the touch anymore. This team is incredibly bloated with wasted salary.

#2618523 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by greenrebellion on 01 July 2015 - 07:20 PM

Reading the Caps forums, they are generally thrilled to be rid of the guy.  His offense was non-existant in the playoffs...14 games, 2 points.


He's way past his prime, injuries have significantly derailed his natural abilities and his defense is subpar (and that's being nice).  


Only time will tell if this works out, but the more I look at it the more I dislike it....especially because we already have a glut of defensemen.


My biggest surprise with this deal is how the near unanimous response of the signing on these boards is VERY positive.  This is FAR from a slam dunk deal, and very well could be a disaster from day 1 as with Weiss.

No interest in green unless we are moving some guys out. We have way too many D as it is.

I am fine with standing pat this off-season as well.  Give the kids the playing time.

Ya but only one assist which is pretty depressing


Ya, all he ever does is shoot so its not surprising!

#2604900 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by greenrebellion on 30 April 2015 - 08:12 AM

Without Babcock this season, we miss the playoffs imo.  Team's outperform their true talent when Babcock is coaching.  Wouldn't be surprised if the Wings streak ended next season without him.

People really blaming mrazek? He is the only reason we are playing a game 7.

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.

Welcome to Uncle Garrys New NHL


God I hope you guys aren't serious.  This has been a very well officiated game so far.  Wings have been sloppy and undisciplined at times and it has cost them.

While the game was MUCH closer than the score indicates, I'll be the first to admit that was by far our best game since before the deadline. 


Agreed, the Lightning hit several posts and missed one or two open nets that I recall.  Game could've gone either way, but if we continue to play like we did today, at least we give ourselves a chance to win each game.
