#2507371 4/8 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Sabres 2

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 08 April 2014 - 07:50 PM

I'd like to see a Helm, Datsyuk, Nyquist top line, resurrect the kid line as the 2nd and roll Franzen, Legwand, Alfredsson as the old and lazy 3rd line. 

What is going out there right now isn't working, mix it up Babs.

Apologies for the condensed GDT, it's late, i'm strapped for time and I have a busy day tomorrow. 

 

From my understanding, 3 points in our remaining 4 games is what we need to secure a playoff spot, there is no reason why we shouldn't secure two points in this game with Buffalo in their current state.

 

Red Wings unleash the force, Glendening and Nyquist with a pair each, Datsyuk with a goal and a helper. Wings win 5-1. 

Tonight's game mascots, the honorary Jedi wings.

#2506821 A plea to Holland.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 April 2014 - 01:02 AM

Complaining about someone is more effective if you spell his name right.  

Let's contribute to the thread constructively instead of pointing out an auto-correct when you obviously know who he is talking about. There's no need to drag the topic off the rails unnecessarily when modern technology makes a minor error. Thanks.

 

On topic, i've been in this mindset for weeks, the kids are working, they are scoring, they provide energy. 

 

The defense is an obvious problem right now, it was the offense, and it was addressed by calling up prospects that have thrived. Logic tells me that doing the same for defense may have the same result. Give one or two of the defense prospects a chance, especially if we secure a playoff spot and have a few games remaining to test it out.

Kindl isf****** garbage. Why the f*** did my girlfriend buy his autographed puck? I'm going to go get it and throw it off a bridge.

 

Edit: Losing on the scoreboard and getting dominated physically.

I think I speak for everyone when I say we all want to know the answer to that question. :lol:

Well we did come back, i'm a man of my word.

The force is strong with this one. Now get this goal back and get a point out of this damn game.

Use the force Luke.. I will totally Jedi Glendening after this game if we come back here.

Holy freaking Glendening.. I thought the day would never come :lol:




#2506154 Glendening signed to 3 year extension

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 April 2014 - 11:24 AM

Awesome, i'm excited to have him as a 4th line staple for the next 3 years, he plays smart and even though he may score 3 goals in his career he brings more to the table non-offensively related for this to be a quality signing for us. I hope he continues to develop his game and remain an agitator, but maintains a certain level of class and represents this team well.

Tough game tonight, i'm glad we racked up as many points as we have these past few games so this one isn't as desperate. It will be a challenge but I think our boys can overcome the odds. 

 

Lines are a complete guess, I am not going to be able to re-update it before tomorrow night's game so I took a crack at what I think the starting lines might look like going by what was rolled in the game against Buffalo. Someone will post more accurate ones as game time closes in i'm sure. 

 

Monster is confirmed to play, Price is not but highly likely to get the start.

 

Get this win guys and make the path to the playoffs that much easier for our remaining games. 

 

GO RED WINGS!!

It wasn't exactly pretty, and a bit more close than I would have anticipated, but a win is a win and it's still two points if the score is 3-2 or 7-2.

 

Tougher game tomorrow against Montreal, Patches had a 5 point night tonight and has been on fire lately. We need the D to show up and shut down their offense or it might be a rough one.

 

I'll have the GDT posted up tonight regardless.




#2505809 Riley Sheahan - Underappreciated and Overshadowed?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 04 April 2014 - 04:35 PM

I don't want to overstep here and go overboard, but I can see him in the future playing the same role Larionov did. He has the passing skills already, numerous times a game you look at a play he makes and think "What a pass by Sheahan there". He's capable of being among the better playmaking 2nd line centers in the league, might drop a few 50 assist seasons down the line. Who knows, but right now, first year, thrown into this situation not even anticipating playing for the Wings for a few years, he has impressed me and is a valuable piece to our current run.

Datsyuk returns tonight!! Welcome back Pav!
 
Buffalo is down their first two goaltenders, along with Stewart and Myers. Their lineup looks pretty awful, and we have our best Center back in. If we can't beat Buffalo tonight there is something seriously wrong, this should be an easy two points for us.
 
Detroit wins 7-2, Glendening scores his first (ha!), Nyquist does something amazing, Pav shows us why he was missed so much. 
 
GO WINGS GO!!


#2505338 4/2 GDT - Bruins 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 April 2014 - 10:03 PM

This team, wow. They had no business winning tonight and they have no business being in a playoff spot, but they continue to do the improbable. What a job by Babs and his coaching staff to keep this group competing through everything that has gone against them. 

 

I can't really add anything else about the kids that hasn't already been said. Never thought I would have so much fun watching the Red Wings play without Z and Pavel. 

 

Jimmy stole this game, though. The Bruins dominated the first 40 minutes. Jimmy kept the Wings in it and then the kids did their thing. Felt like a playoff game at the end -- I was a nervous wreck in the last couple minutes. Nice to have a little practice before the real deal, which is even more likely after those two points tonight. 

 

What a game! I'm glad that fanboy Edzo had to sit and watch the Red Wings win too. 

You know he was sitting up there pouting, getting a back rub and eating a big slice of cake on a paper plate to feed his depression. :lol:

Probably my favorite game this season. Every single odd was in Boston's favor toward the middle of the 3rd. If we took it to Vegas we'd be millionaires. 

 

Unbelievable and stunning win, i'm so amped up right now. 




#2505241 4/2 GDT - Bruins 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 April 2014 - 09:37 PM

Jimmy stole us this game, Nyquist was the hero once again, two ENORMOUS points against one of the best teams in the NHL. Two of the next three games are against Buffalo. 

 

The hockey gods are smiling on us, maintain and make it 23 straight. I'm so proud of the performance tonight. Unbelievable game.
