#2499927 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Need Franzen to come alive in the third.

#2497671 3/20 GDT - Penguins 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 20 March 2014 - 07:34 PM

It was a very, very sloppy first 20 mins. I'm mostly talking about the d-zone, of course. We were ok in the o-zone, but didn't generate much in the way of scoring chances.

There is a difference between outmatched and sloppy. All things considered I felt they held their own in the d-zone in the first.

I don't know if it's all on bad coaching or all on the players or somewhere in between or something else entirely...but we are absolutely horrific at dealing with teams when they hit another gear and ratchet up the compete and press, press, press. It's like we get scared and confused and panicky and we just collapse because OMG WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO BE DOING I FORGOT WHO I'M SUPPOSED TO BE COVERING I'D BETTER JUST STAND IN FRONT OF JIMMY.


It wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that we are missing 2/3rds of our regulars would it??????????

Except both were injured before the Olympics....


Don't let facts get in the way of the drama that is LGW today.

Just imagine how much better we'd be if we just landed 1 of Erhoff, Wisnewski or Suter


Mainly because it would've kept us from signing one or more of Tootoo, Cleary or Sammy :)

Wings prospects are rushed to the NHL level.

It'd be nice if Babs would notice the chemsitry between Tatar and Franzine and put some loyalty in the pair.  I'm afraid he will probably just randomly juggle the bottom three lines with no rhyme and reason for the next couple years. 


Woah woah woah...I'd just be happy if Babcock stops benching Tatar.  Let's not ask for too much here!

Tatar is the only guy on this team that creates anything outside of Dats and Z...and yet he was almost benched today.

DId you guys think that maybe just maybe Holland can't participate in these deals because WE DON'T HAVE CAP ROOM.  We are over the cap when everyone is healthy, we are trying to shed salary not add salary.  And no, no one wants Tootoo so don't add him to a hypothetical deal.  He's cleared waivers, he has negative value.  And Sammy isn't going anywhere given his NTC.

#2453744 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by greenrebellion on 14 November 2013 - 07:28 PM

Yup, lets let a great prospect rot on the bench and instead play an over the hill guy who has no future with the team.  Unbelievably ridiculous.

#2453511 An honest question about Nyquist

Posted by greenrebellion on 13 November 2013 - 09:02 PM


Holland said the solution must come from within.

“That’s it, that’s the team,’’ Holland said. “We’re not the first team in the league to have struggles. There is no hockey store. It’s got to be done internally.’’


Facepalm.... there are such things as OTHER TEAMS that you can trade with... Essentially Holland is saying the team we have is the team we are stuck with and that the players just aren't playing well but he constructed a great team that should win if the players did what he payed them to do.



I'd like to see the entire team healthy simply so it forces Holland to make a move for cap reasons.  Would be interesting to see what he does when his hand is forced.


That said, Holland's quote shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone.  He's made it clear numerous times that in the salary cap era he believes that hanging on to picks and young talent is paramount...especially if you want to be competitive year in and year out.
