#2489795 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 04 March 2014 - 09:37 PM

I don think people understand how s*** trickles down. When you are missing your top players, the kids have to play against top pairs instead of 2nd, 3rd pairs. Which then has our weakest lines that shouldn't be in the NHL on the ice for 1/2 the game. When we don't have your top centers, the defense has to make up for them as well, in the zone D is a 3 man system, s***ty centers help break down our d coverage. Go figure that s***ty D means s***ty goaltending because of all the chances, turnovers, bad coverage and fatigue but hey let's just blame Howard, obviously his fault lol

I do love how Ericsson spearing the puck out of Howard's glove and no one picking up the rebound guy that was behind the D was also Howard's fault. He could have done a better job controlling the rebound but he also didn't let it sit 3 feet dead center in front of him off a quick shot by jagr. It's pretty easy to blame Howard when our D is playing terrible and out centers are lead by Anderson lol

#2479720 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 February 2014 - 07:38 PM

I don't understand how people really think Pasha would rather go to the Olympics in "non game shape" and a month + off instead of playing and going in "in game shape."

Pavel Datsyuk would want to go into the Olympics at the top of his game and full steam, not go in after not playing a month plus. So no I don't buy the crap that he is faking an injury.

I do believe he wants to make sure he is a 100% healthy before he plays so that he doesn't end up hurt again in a week and miss another month.

#2475305 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

I like to stay positive but we are going to need 100% effort tonight and maybe some puck luck. Hockey Gods, we deserve some love tonight. The help against the kings I hope was only just the start.

No word on why Howard is out. He was flexing his knee after covering puck late in first period. But Mickey Redmond said he might be sick.

#2470095 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 01 January 2014 - 05:51 PM

I don't think bishop should... Howard isn't just going for his performance this year, they also pick for the future years and the experience, bishop has player what 3-4 months of good hockey, Howard 3 years... Miller won't be around next year which could leave a tandem of Howard and Quick which I believe they are confident in when both are at the top of their game... Bishop hasn't even played playoffs has he, and people think he is ready for the drive of the Olympics?

#2468351 Blockbuster deal?

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 29 December 2013 - 06:27 PM

I might be in the that small party that doesn't want a trade at this point. I'm not saying this team is a bust and won't make playoffs but in terms of trade we don't have the cap room or pieces to make something happen that makes us a contender.

Guys we want to trade Cleary, Quincey, bertuzzi, and franzen are not that highly desired by other teams. As far as the players with value to trade are our young prospects that have cheap contracts. You can't replace them with someone who makes more because of cap room and in the end a slight upgrade and more contract won't help anything when you still have those original 4 eating up cap and ice time.

I rather just muscle through the season and try to pick up a key asset in the off season when cleary, Quincey, bertuzzi, Sammy are all off the books... Heck only 1 of them should be playing per night and they take about 2/3 players worth of roster.

In the end there is no short term solution that makes us legit contenders this season but if we push through, bring up kids, and add the RIGHT pieces not the "panic" piece it will be a lot better situation for us long run.

What are you when you consistently get dominated by the worst teams in the NHL?


Lucky they never make the playoffs so we wont get swept lol

I'm not gonna lie, I was let down.... It felt like an hour long interview with highlights plugged in.... In previous years it wasn't near as many interviews and more just the fly on the wall aspect...

#2455585 11/19 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 0

I don't think it's Babs fault as much as it is Hollands. As a coach you want to make the best decisions working with what you have, so why the same roster that OBVIOUSLY isn't working? Does it take 7 games to realize that the lineups suck? Unfortunately I fear Babs would be the scapegoat and be the first to go in the event it comes to a house cleaning. 


Cleary played 14 minutes tonight, including being on the ice at any point in the last 10 minutes... that 14 doesn't include the 4 minutes he put us short handed for his stellar D on that high stick haha... Babcock is at fault, we have been terrible and as much as it sucks... when you lose your number 2 center you need to break up the twins and not make helm play a role thats over his head. We have 0 center depth because he refuses to break them up even when its the most obvious thing ever

You people are pathetic excuse for fans. I'm ready for a struggling Red Wings season, it's about time to burn off all this dead wood.


Hey I never quit on this team, but Im quitting on this team and not wasting hundreds of dollars to go up to detroit to see them ice not our best team and put out an effort like this at home after a two day rest. I don't think this team has no chance, but we need to get rid of the dead weight, which I honestly don't see us doing. 0-7 lol.. that is awful!
