#2502804 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

Posted by Echolalia on 29 March 2014 - 12:25 PM

The Leafs are riding a serious losing streak; the Wings are playing a team in direct competition with them for a playoff spot; the Wings are playing a team they are entirely capable of defeating.

This one has loss written all over it

2-1 Wings win


Glendening finally gets a goal, that kid has a crazy work ethic seems to be all over the ice.

Am I seriously looking at a Bertuzzi-Andersson-Miller line? Is Babcock insane?


Bertuzzi's mind is in the courtroom and his body is 50 years old.  He hasn't been relevant since he murdered that Harvard kid 10 years ago.  


What we have is a washed up, grizzled waste of space.    

Team is totally gassed. Jimmy is the only bright spot


Funny, we frequently play against teams that are playing 3 games in 4 days, and those teams never seem as gassed.

Abby should have jumped on the net after it fell on top of Lundqvist.

Anybody listen to NHL network radio yesterday when they had some local journalist on?

Basically said there's a significant chance Datsyuk's knee issue could be chronic, and that he might never be the same again....

Combine that with Zetterberg's extreme wobble yesterday, my hopes aren't too high.

Good thing is that we're loaded with young incoming centers from our prospect pool.

#2490953 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I think a big factor on whether this was a terrible move or not hinges on where Legwand re-signs in the offseason. 


I think people generally overrate our prospects here, but if this really is just a 20 game rental then Holland sure gave up a lot. 

If they resign Legwand and everyone is healthy they will have 7 centers.


Zetterberg (>30)

Datsyuk (>30)

Weiss (>30)



Legwand (>30)



Now I know I only have a minor in math, but I believe you can't have 7 players in 4 spots.

No. But we'll definitely kick some tires.

Respect is a 2-way street. He can leave at anytime...


Considering what he has done for this franchise and fanbase, you would think people would be a little more accommodating when he wants to chase a dream.


I didn't know he was an intern all this time.  I thought he was being paid millions to put the Red Wings first and foremost on his list of priorities when it comes to hockey. 


Point is, the team has rewarded him for what he's done for it over the years.  That's why he's a multi-millionaire, unlike any of us.  But he's also under contract this season to perform for the team.  There is no immunity because of the past as long as one is making big bucks in the present.


If he's healthy and wants to play for his country, great.  If he's hurt and is in danger of aggravating an existing injury to play in the Olympics, then it's not OK.  If he's even more hurt to the point where he would only play for the Olympic team and not his NHL team in similar circumstances, then that is the worst scenario.  I hope that's not what happened here.

Cleary has never played 18 minutes this season and has only played over 17 minutes four times.  His average ice time is 13:38.  1:29 of that is on the PK.  It'd be a dream if people would stop ending every post about the team with some whining about Cleary.  At least Robert Lang being Lazy and Sucking™ became a tongue in cheek meme here and got funny. 


As for Flip, it's not surprising he's putting up more points with Tampa.  There he's not behind Dats and Zetterberg and he's playing 2 more minutes a night on a very good  team.  Here in Detroit he seemed to play to the spot he was given as a third line center instead of breaking out. 

When you're a 3rd line center, it means you have 3rd line wingers, which would likely account for his production.


I don't get the perception that Flip was this epic failure and under achiever.  He did have a break out season when he was with more offensive minded players. In 2013, he battled injuries much of the shortened season.  So I wouldn't really say he didn't follow up his breakout season.  


I can't say I blame him for not wanting to re-sign here.

I really despise Dan Cleary, and Babcock's inexplicable devotion to him is beginning to seriously perturb me. I understand that Quincey must play, as there are no other defensemen available. But it was clearly unnecessary for Cleary to be on this team to begin with, let alone playing in every game, let alone playing on the first line. It is a !@#$ing travesty. Put ANY FORWARD but Cleary there. LITERALLY ANY OF THEM. Every single one forward on this team would do better than him. This is not an exaggeration, and it makes the issue infuriating.

#2447714 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by ben_usmc on 25 October 2013 - 01:24 AM


Miller is good with proper linemates and in the proper context, as is Abdelkader. Their thus-far poor performance is not Holland's fault, nor is that of Stephen Weiss. Cleary is atrocious, though I don't think anyone could have anticipated him being this bad. Samuelsson's contract is not a problem right now, but his presence on the roster is.


That said, this team has the tools it needs to win.

buls***, a lot of us did

Get that retarded 4th line plug off the top line!


He just ruined Datsyuk's highlight reel play.
