Jurco on the top line... Interesting. I like it, I mean why not?

#2464062 Kindl

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 13 December 2013 - 02:02 PM

This goes on every year, there's a few players pointed out as the "problem" and it's never considered as a team sport like it should be. For a game we just lost that was 1-1 going into a shootout, a defensemen is picked out as today's subject of concern. It's kind of strange considering 1 goal was allowed that the defense is what is brought up and not the offense as a whole. 

 

There has been 5 goals allowed total in the last 3 games, all 3 games which were losses. In games where you are only allowing 1 or 2 goals against should be wins most of the time, and when they aren't the goaltender isn't being supported enough offensively. There lies the problem and what I think should be the focus, the offense or lack there of the past few games that should have been wins. Not Cleary and Sammy who are 4th liners, because the reliance and expectations of them offensively getting 4th line minutes as the hate continues to grow is getting a bit silly. I'm talking the guys who get the minutes, like Alfredsson, Bertuzzi, Abdelkader, to step up and net these goals because their job on the 1st and 2nd line is to put up offense. We can't rely on Datsyuk and sometimes Franzen to do it all.

 

This week, for me, i'm seeing a lot of Quincey hate, and now Kindl, and I really have trouble jumping on this wagon considering the goals against in recent games. If we gave up 10-15 goals in the last 3 games, sure it's a problem with the defense. But allowing as few as 1-2 per game and still losing, i'm directing my discouragement elsewhere. 

 

To sum it up and bring out my point, Kindl and his play here recently is at the lower end of my list of concerns.

If this was another half season i'd be more concerned. Knowing how many games still remain, that our point total so far this season all problems aside is surprisingly good, and that Zett will return, i'm not giving up hope that this squad can still contend and make playoffs. Even if Howard continues to struggle who can argue that Monster isn't a viable option until Jimmy picks it back up?




#2463953 The person below me game...

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 December 2013 - 11:15 PM

I have! I smoked for 12 years and this past April I quit cold turkey and haven't had a cigarette since.

 

The person below me is sick of shootouts.

Seriously, a moment of thanks for Monster and his turnaround this year. Last season there was never this kind of faith in him and Howard got overworked. With Gustavsson's play this season, even bringing this team to OT and securing a point in a couple losses, I greatly appreciate him and his efforts. We might be in a much worse position in the standings without him. 

 

Shootouts are getting old, not going to argue about how stupid of a concept it is to begin with but the Wings are obviously ineffective during it this season and something needs to run better going forward. Thankfully... there is no shootout in playoffs.

#2462519 Darren Helm Injured

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 December 2013 - 01:53 PM

Per khan: Helm to return in a week/week and a half.

This is good news, also getting Pav back tomorrow from the sound of it. All things considered and the last game against Florida aside, this team did pretty well during these injury woes.

I'm listening to the UFO Paranormal Network Radio hoping for some kind of extraterrestrial explanation as to why tonight happened the way it did. Body snatchers, mind control, there's an answer here somewhere.

Send a message, regardless of current injuries make Weiss a healthy scratch against Tampa. He's capable of being a 60 point player, I really don't know what his problem is but a wake up call outside of burying him on the 4th line is much needed. Give Nyquist, Tatar, and the kids that are playing like they care top minutes until the big guns return. They are putting up the offense, reward them.

whose going to tie it? Quincey or Weiss?

One ties it one wins it in OT.

While we haven't exactly sucked 15-8-7 is nothing to be proud of either.

Down our best offensive players, 4th in the east, 4 points behind first place in the East, 2 if we win tonight. What is the line of expectations here, anything less than first place is unacceptable regardless if Pav and Zett are down? I'm pretty damn proud of where this team sits considering the struggles of Howard and the injuries we've faced this season. 

 

On top of it.. the game is tied. People are acting like we are losing 5-1 right now.

This team is aggressively terrible too often to do anything worthwhile this season.

15-8-7 is a terrible worthless record we have also.  :rolleyes:
