#2550412 11/20 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Jets 3

Ol' Ozzie was having a little trouble counting to 4 it seems but really started picking up steam at 5.

Or we look really slow :-)   Just don't have our legs yet

We look like were keeping up speed wise, but not as quick decisively.

Were relatively new to playing this fast, the jets look like they're more used to it than us.

#2542652 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 20 October 2014 - 03:07 PM

I think after last years debacle, the Wings are being cautious here, and rightfully so, especially with Franzen off to such a good start. 


Also, it delays the inevitable roster crunch decision for a little while longer - gives Nestrasil a few more games to hopefully impress. IMO they need to waive Cleary and send him down to GR rather than the easy way out (which would be to send Jurco back to GR)

#2542795 Pavel Datsyuk update?

Babcock just confirmed that Datsyuk is playing tonight. :w00t2:

The Wings have six goals in three games.

Weiss needs to play to see if he can give the team much-needed help offensively. If he still can't contribute, then there's a serious problem, but Joakim Andersson and Andrej Nestrasil aren't going to solve the lack of goals issue.

Unless there are lingering injury concerns, I don't really understand Weiss being scratched unless there is more going on behind the scenes.

#2509438 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by LAWings on 13 April 2014 - 07:54 PM

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.


Thank you gents for sucking so bad.

#2477756 1/26 GDT: Panthers 5 @ Red Wings 4 (SO)

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 26 January 2014 - 08:37 PM

Cleary ~ 51 games ~ 4 goals ~ 4 assists ~ 8 points ~ minus 9 rating

Sheahan ~ 12 games ~ 3 goals ~ 5 assists ~ 8 points ~ plus 3 rating (no penalties in 12 games)


Babcock keeps saying the players dictate who plays, who gets the ice time.  If that is true, then I guess the players know who is going down to GR….or do they?  Would sending Cleary down not free up enough cap space to keep Sheahan up?  If so, then the decision is very simple.

#2474438 Blessing in disguise?

Posted by Motown4013 on 19 January 2014 - 10:12 PM

This season has been such a roller coaster for even the most seasoned Wings fan. Let's face it....We should be up near 65 points on the year with the talent we have....except we are in a dog fight for a playoff spot, praying for our " big guys" to get healthy. With that being said, I can't remember a season that I have been more emotionally invested in this team I love. It's so easy when you have all the cogs in the wheel to expect greatness. DEMAND wins. In certain years, one loss was a huge deal because we have seen this team be so dominant for so many years.

Saturday nights game made me realize how all of the injuries and all of the uncertainty has perhaps been a blessing in disguise. Sounds lame? Perhaps...but I have never been so happy for some of the young men on this team who have really stepped up. Acknowledge how much character is on this roster. I no longer expect a win....I REALLY want one and the victory somehow is a bit sweeter when we get one. I think of Tatar who plays like he is shot from a cannon every night...even the night after he found out his dad died. He is so fun to watch....and without injuries, he would have been a healthy scratch and we wouldn't have the opportunity to see his heart and how big it really is.

Guys like the Monster who was terrible last year is one of the reasons we are even in the wild card race. He has been fantastic and I am so happy for him that he has been able to resurrect his career. Jurco, Shehan, Mrazk and Glenny have all shown that the future is bright in Hockeytown. We have a ton of talent, character and heart on this team and we are finding in the most unusual places. I'm really proud of this team and although it's been a train wreck of year for injuries, it's shown the fans of this team that we can and will be contenders for years to come.

Ok, that's my warm fuzzy for today.

Is there a more fitting outcome given this season? Red Wings played well and probably deserved better, but that's how it seems to be going.

January is a brutal month in terms of the schedule. Really gotta find a way to string some wins together and display some consistency.

Awesome event, no less. Enjoyable to watch despite the disappointing loss.
