most of us, its hear say. Jarnkronk who? Holland made a deal, he knows more than us. Reason for everything. Chill wings fans, we'll be okay. Legwand is good this season for us. Trust, watch.

#2489523 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Glad to see a flash of the real franzen his last 10 games. If he keeps it up, he single handedly will extend the playoff streak.

Holmstrom to this day would still be more effective than half of those guys in the lineup. Can this year be over?

The best athletes ever deal with the greatest injuries. With great hurt, out comes great heart.

Dekeyser, Smith, Abby. 

#2466557 Jurco Called Up

Posted by CMatt89 on 20 December 2013 - 05:11 PM

Would like to see Jurco and Tootoo both in the full healthy lineup. Wishful thinking. Jurco; He's looked solid, real good speed, goes hard to the net, uses his body hasn't made many , if any defensive errors. He seems ready to make an impact. This team lacks solid wingers. He could fit nicely in that role. 

#2465567 Why the Red Wings get injured

Posted by CMatt89 on 17 December 2013 - 04:07 PM

I'd rather see Franzen knee someone in the head, then throw a fit when someone touches glove to his face. Do enforcers prevent injuries? No, but they prevent reoccurring instances where the entire team gets bullied, thus leading to injuries. Enforcers are the street justice of the hockey world. The "police" (refs) aren't doing an adequate job for the most part in supporting player safety, so that's where the thugs come in. Is it really that hard to acquire someone that can fight AND play hockey? Probably not..



Edit: Having players with multiple roles seems to be non existent.

Smitty and Deke are the future of this D corps. Learn to respect it.

Ken Holland must be sick of losing in shootouts, now he has to change the rules so he can win with the likes of Dan Cleary and Mikeal Samuelsson and Kyle Quincey in the lineup every night. 

#2453780 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by CMatt89 on 14 November 2013 - 10:35 PM

Holland and Babcock should be apologizing to the fans, also to Zetterberg and Datsyuk. Hopefully we wont trade away our middle of the pack draft pick this year for an extra second round pick like we do every year. I've also noticed that Babcock wants to play a certain way. A way that a lot of the league is playing, and playing successful. The only difference is that he's continuously provided the wrong types of players to the point where it almost seems like he's handcuffed and obliged to play these incompetent players. His overly optimistic attitude and unwarranted praise for low end players seems a little bit fishy to me. I'm glad he's not Tortorella, but I also feel like there's a loaded gun being pointed at him every time he wants to say whats really on his mind. I'd love to play for Babcock, maybe not so much Ken Holland and the Illitch maf..........ya get where I'm going with this. 


If we make the playoffs, we'll see Nyquist. I just hope the general fan super savior pressure that is expected doesn't turn him into public enemy number 1 when he doesn't perform. (which I hope he does)

Edit : Sammy, Cleary > Tootoo, Eaves, Nyquist, Tatar, 

#2451691 Are we faking injuries/illnesses to deal with the roster crunch?

Posted by CMatt89 on 07 November 2013 - 06:41 PM

Franzen needs better linemates...Considering Cleary will ALWAYS and FOREVER clog up the top six wing spot.   Franzen - Helm - Tatar
