#2503207 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

look dont get me wrong im more than happy being in front going into the 3rd, but wtf is Tom Renney's jog?

Brought in to help the PP, we have the best chance to put this game to bed by going 4-1 up on a 4min pp

and we create absolutely no scoring chances. Maybe the plane was to eat up the 4 mins and go into the

3rd 3-1 up. Its so bloody annoying, i just hope it doesn't come back to bite us on the arse.

#2501575 Net off the moorings question

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 26 March 2014 - 07:11 AM

i have seen numerous n/m push the net off its moorings and the other team then score and i have never seen the ref allow 

the goal to stand, it seems this league makes up rules as it goes along. it will now be very interesting to see what happens

in future games and the same occurs. 




#2500421 Showcasing for Trade?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 24 March 2014 - 01:54 PM

I know alot of the call ups this year has been down mainly to the excessive injuries we have sustained but maybe there is a little showcasing going on here. We dont know what Kenny offered in any potential deals but he knows what the other GM's were after and maybe he's showing a little bit more of what we have on offer. That top D guy is a must for us next year and maybe a couple of pieces needed to pull off a deal in the summer are being aired at this moment in time. That D guy we need isnt in the coming UFA's so it'll need to be done via a trade. Maybe some potential trade partner whats to see the goods before he parts with his asset's ?




#2500268 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 23 March 2014 - 09:35 PM

happy with a point and lets face it when we went 2-3 down who honestly thought we'd get back in it?

 

Next season upgrade on the bottom pairing D, either we keep Q and make him a 5/6 guy with E and

sign a top 2 guy to partner Nik, with DeK and Smiffy as the 3/4 pairing. Marchenko as the #7.

 

Up front when all are fit to play just a top 6 power forward and we should have a good year as long 

as we dont repeat the injury records we set this year.

 

The next 4 games are going to make or break our p/o push. 




#2499333 3/22 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2

the thing is if we make the playoffs we'll want Pav and Z back on the ice if possible. 

I would like the front office to shut them both down and let them heel up for next

year, where i believe we will be in a much better position to have a good year.

I think that they have told Weiss that he should call it a year already and get healthy

for 2014-15.

bad advice by his agent i would guess. RH shot badly needed on the top 6 for the Wings, he would gotten enough chance's with Detroit. He asked too much for his 1 season and the Wings went and got Alfie at more $ yes but Alfie's record speaks for itself. Brunner should have seen the long term goal instead of short term gain. As long as he's happy in Jersey i guess thats all that matters.

Id sooner Holland let Marchenko step up and give AA a chance than re-sign KQ on any sort of contract.




#2495619 Fedor Malykhin

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 16 March 2014 - 04:29 PM

ive seen him play a few times in the K and he is a solid guy. i heard somewhere that if Pav wasnt going to make the Olympics

then this kid was lined up to take his spot. Im all for getting more kids in the line up, they gotta high alot of upside thou of course.

we arent a contender, so why not let the kids grow as a team over the next 3 years or so with the help of half a douzen vets as we

dont want to go the Oilers way. We could use the surplus of forwards this would create to get that top D we need.

#2494058 Andersson breaks foot - down another center

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 10 March 2014 - 01:10 PM

it'll be Cory, he knows the systems and is pretty safe in his own end. no need to bring up a natural scoring r/h winger eh?

Marchenko is going to be real good for us.




#2493895 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 09 March 2014 - 02:30 PM

sadly he isnt the only D that is making bonehead plays lately and i include #55




#2493889 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 09 March 2014 - 02:21 PM

i did suggest we should have traded Howard for Miller but got flack. Jimmy is very inconsistent to say the least, I would have give Miller 

 

a 2 year deal for his home state team and Jimmy could have gone home to NY in Buffalo! Mrazek could back up Miller for 2 years and

 

then take over full time. Monster is just to injury prone to be relied on. I still say trade Jimmy in the off season to get the top D would 

 

have to be in a package as the way he's played one for one wont get it done. No good being sentimental, if he struggles from now till

 

the end of the season we need to move him on, if we have any takers.
