#2671808 ECQF Game 4 Post-GTD: Tampa Bay 3, at Red Wings 2

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 20 April 2016 - 12:55 AM

The anemic power play has cost them this series. Maybe a change in personnel in the off season on that front would be a help. Also, get Cheli on board full time somehow to sort this D out! I said we would go in 5 hopefully I'm wrong and we can somehow grab a win on the road and make t he season last a little longer.

Hoping for some moves in the off season

Call up Tangradi to replace Andersson, tell him to beat the crap out of Johnson take him out the series. Job done, only this isn't the 1980s NHL is it? Lol

I really can't understand the hate some of the so called fans on here vent towards a player of their team. He was a 4 th liner that did what he was asked to do. But for a couple of inches he'd have had an early goal in game 1 and who knows what may have happened. Still I wish him the best of luck in whatever he does next and thanks for his time here in Detroit. To all the badmouthing "fans" he can say something none of you can , he played over 200 games in the show and wore the Winged wheel to boot.

The teams below us are winning we have a 3 game cushion for the last wild card spot.
It's getting too close for comfort now, need a big win Tuesday and then it's a 3 game homestand in 4 days that could define our season once and for all. A mini 4 game winning streak would do nicely.

Kenny needs to get creative to get any deal involving Howard and I'm afraid he ain't creative.Jimmy is a wing until the off season for sure.

I can see them calling up someone other than Kindl.

#2647845 Pav hits 1000

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 14 January 2016 - 11:46 AM

I always look at the 120+ games guys like Pav , Nic #5 and Hank lost due to the lockouts and totals they could have had. The biggest loser on that front was Stevie Y who finished his playing career 54 pts behind Gordie, no doubt if he'd have stayed fit he would have surpassed Gordies records.


#2647822 Pav hits 1000

Not sure if anybody else noticed but with Pavs second assist v LA he hit the 1000 pts plateau with regular and playoff games combined. This in 1067 games.


#2645936 FA sweepstakes, did we win one?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 04 January 2016 - 04:19 AM

looking back at the 2 sweepstakes for college D men we were involved in i was wondering how you all think we did .

 

back in 2012 it was the Justin Schultz show where we put forward a good pitch but came up empty handed.

then a year later saw us enter the Danny DeKeyser which we won due mainly to the home front situ.

 

both are well into what promises to be good NHL careers and a quick check on their progress shows that we may

just have come out on top with our signing. 

 

to date Schultz has a record of pl 229  g 26 a 69 t 95 pts 44 pims and a rather poor -65.

our boy DD has record to date pl 191 g 8 a 56 t 63 pts 90 pims and a +30 rating.

 

although DeKeyser was never a prolific scorer in NCAA compared to Schultz i feel his $2,187,500 

is somewhat better value than what the Oilers are paying Schultz $3,900,000, both are due renewing

at seasons end, wonder who'll get the better deal. 

So do you think in hindsight Detroit got the better all round or would Schultz have thrived more in the Redwings system?

Would we have gone for Dekeyser as well if we had of signed Schultz ?

 

Also, i think we have got a steal in Russo for the blueline too, he's on course for a 40pt+ rookie season.

Green would help on the pp if only Blash puts him out on the first unit, keep putting Kronwall out there aint helping and

by the time Green gets out on a pp theres usually only 25 or so seconds left.

Cleary is getting 3rd line minutes, time on the penalty kill and no power-play time, exactly the way he should be being utilized. He started out playing on a line with Zengerle and Campbell but has recently been playing with Nosek and Bertuzzi. He hasn't been playing great by any stretch but hasn't played nearly as bad as some people would make it seem. It blows my mind how much people want to hate on Dan Cleary, I just don't get it... He has a goal and three assists in 13 games, which really isn't that awful for a 36 year old that has had some major injury issues over the past few years. So why not s*** on Hoggan? A guy that is the same age, the captain of the team, and has one goal and zero assist in 19 games, and is a -3 compared to Cleary's -1... Cleary is down there for one reason, and that is to help "coach" all these kids, and from everything I've heard, he is doing just that.


Cleary is an NHL vet with over 1000 games to his name and 400+ points. He should not even be in the minors, he should have retired gracefully and maybe gone down to Van Andel as a member of the coaching staff off the ice. No one is dissing him just the way that the whole saga was dealt with be Kenny and Cleary.
