#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:

#2461481 12/6 GDT 7:00PM: Red Wings 3 at Devils 1

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 December 2013 - 02:47 PM

GDT updated with adjusted NJD lines after Brunner was declared a healthy scratch. 


This was my first attempt at a GDT, thanks a lot for the positive feedback everyone!


Wings will bounce back in a big way, win this game 5-2 with another big game from Mule.

#2461139 12/4 GDT : Flyers 6 at Red Wings 3

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 04 December 2013 - 11:07 PM

If it makes you feel better Schneider blew two late 3rd period leads tonight. 


I'm about on the same page as puckbags, sucks that we lost, we aren't going 82-0-0 every season. Games like this have happened before, they will happen again. If being passive aggressive towards your fellow fans about it and preaching lineup and roster setups that will make zero difference on how this team goes forward because you have no control over it makes you feel better than that's on you. 


We are down our top 2 offensive threats. We are down one of our best defensive players in Dekeyser. There was an extreme difference in line combinations tonight and took a lead midway through the game. As its happened many times before, especially in the playoffs last year, the lead was blown and the game was lost. 


This is still a playoff team, our overall record is still pretty great all things considered. The season isn't even 1/3rd of the way done and NO TEAM plays consistently excellent hockey through the entire season. It just doesn't happen. 


I choose to not get into arguments and point fingers because it makes the loss sting even more. People handle things how they want to handle things, no one should be disrespected for taking either approach, but don't expect people to enjoy taking disrespect with a smile when you confront them directly on their opinion. If we all felt the same way and acted the same way about everything this would be a pretty boring discussion forum. Just keep it civil because you are among fellow fans.

#2460466 Do Quincey and Smith have a future in Detroit?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 December 2013 - 04:28 PM

Smith needs more time to develop, he's still young and green. Look at Adam Larsson in New Jersey, pretty much the same scenario. He's a very young top Defensive prospect that has been pretty awful for the Devils so far. It's nothing a few healthy scratches and a few years of development won't fix over time. 


Young prospects aren't always going to join this team and be amazing from the start, it's a major transition to adjust to the NHL level from where they came from. Smith will be around for a while, and down the road we'll be happy he's here i'm sure.


I don't think Quincey has been as terrible as most think he has but it wouldn't hurt my feelings much if he moved on or was replaced.

#2460215 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 December 2013 - 06:38 PM

Kronwall is currently my favorite Red Wing defender and favorite NHL defender. I know he'll rediscover his Kronwalling ways and get us excited again when he crushes an opponent with a clean, bone breaking hit. Hes a game changer, a difference maker, and I appreciate Kronwall for all hes worth to this team. He's made the absence of Lidstrom a lot less painful. 


Thanks Kronwall for everything you do.

#2460049 Retaliation

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 December 2013 - 12:19 AM

The elbow was not an inherently dirty play, illegal yes, dirty not so much. Neil played the entire game against abdelkader who is pretty much the only guy who would go after cowen so there was no way it was going to happen. Abdelkader would have made a fool out of himself. That is the same reason why helm and abdelkader weren't dishing out big hits. Kronwall tried a few times but the guy is clearly stuck in a hitting rut.

I respect the older game of hockey, the bench clearing brawls, the brutal rematches after a player got previously hurt, but the modern NHL has taken a leap in the other direction from that. I like that you brought up Chris Neil here, because honestly he's one of the remaining true goons left in hockey. He hits hard, he fights a lot, and there's a chance of being down Abby or Kronwall right now if either attempted some kind of retaliation on Cowen. You don't want to get him started, last thing this team needs is more injuries and Neil can definitely inadvertently cause them. 


The Wings played smart hockey today and got them back on the scoreboard. Alf potted an empty netter at the end to seal the deal and anything other than being happy with the result of this game is a low expectation for this era of the NHL.
