#2589302 Time to move Howard?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 05 April 2015 - 12:55 PM

Until there is absolutely no doubt in the minds of management and fans that Mrazek is the #1 in Detroit then there's no way they can even think of trading Howard (unless Holland receives an offer too good to refuse).  Mrazek is young and confident but when I watch him he looks like Howard did when he first came into the league: talented but prone to rookie mistakes.  Howard, on the other hand, is now an experienced veteran who hasn't quite looked the same after a bad injury and needs to get some good bounces to regain his confidence.  The shootout win last night could be the start of him turning it around.




#2585809 Who should sit?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 27 March 2015 - 08:12 AM

I'd like to see Ericsson sit and bring in Marchenko. With the forwards I know Babcock will sit whoever he doesn't like but Weiss shouldn't be scratched every game and only play on the 4th when he finally gets a chance...


#2584233 Connor McDavid

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 23 March 2015 - 05:18 PM

As long as McDavid and Eichel don't go to Edmonton or Toronto, I'll be happy.  Neither of those organizations know how to develop young players and I actually want to see these guys play well and become stars instead of being handicapped by poorly run management.




#2583659 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 21 March 2015 - 08:04 AM

He may have already made up his mind. We don't know. I will say that he no longer seems to be as effective as he was 5-6 years ago so a change to Blashill might be for the best in the long run.


#2582397 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 March 2015 - 05:18 PM

I say ride him until he starts losing (if that happens). Give Howard a short leash in the playoffs.


#2580162 Gus injured; Mrazek re-called

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 March 2015 - 08:49 PM

Howard is fine, Gus is an injury-prone borderline NHL backup and Mrazek is a young, talented goaltender who needs to continue to get NHL experience. Our goalie situation doesn't worry me as much as the defense.


#2573688 Around the NHL -- GWT -- 2/16 thru 2/22

Couldn't believe how many PP's you guys didn't capitalize on

 

I see what you did there  ;)




#2572315 2/18 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (SO. Yes, SO!).

Seeing Tats punk Kane on his own move was the happiest I've been all season.


#2571507 Why are the Wings Afraid to Block Shots?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 17 February 2015 - 01:23 PM

That screen by Kronwall on the first Montreal goal last night was a prime example of "either block it or get the hell out of the way."  I think if Jimmy had been able to see that shot clearly it wouldn't have gone in. 




#2569873 So, Evander Kane...

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 11 February 2015 - 03:12 PM

 

IMO, this will make the Sabres a worse team this year than before the trade...

 

...which is exactly what they want.  They want to win the race to the bottom to better their chances at McDavid.

 

They pretty much would have done that without the trade.  It just doesn't really make sense from their perspective, especially giving up that late 1st rounder in what is supposed to be the deepest draft class in years.  Without that pick the trade is only slightly lopsided in Winnipeg's favor, but man does it ever seem like overpayment on Buffalo's part...




#2569391 Leafs Make History

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 February 2015 - 12:10 PM

 

4 liner...how often do I have to repeat that ?

 

Didn't know he has been traded and yeah a 7 rounder is a steal for that kid. Here's a video of the kid yup totally not worht a 7 rounder right ?

 

 

Impressive.  I'm sold.  One small question, though: can he play hockey?




#2562028 McGratton on waivers

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 January 2015 - 02:23 PM

Babcock would never use him but I hope he ends up somewhere.


#2556893 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 December 2014 - 01:54 PM

All I know is that I don't want to see the Oilers end up with Connor McDavid.  As the most hyped prospect since Crosby, I'd actually like to see this kid get a shot at becoming a star player on a team that's actually trying to rebuild instead of languishing in Edmonton and wasting the first 3 years of his career.




#2555112 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 December 2014 - 03:56 PM

A team in Las Vegas would quickly turn into another Arizona Coyotes situation.  Their ECHL team, the Wranglers, even voluntarily suspended operations for this season because they were essentially kicked out of their arena (not necessarily for attendance issues, but still).  I would much rather see Seattle or Quebec City get a team if the league insists on another expansion.




#2549125 11/14 GDT : Blackhawks 1 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 November 2014 - 05:27 PM

I have to admit, it's nice having Quincey back.  He's played pretty well so far this season.
