Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 January 2016 - 10:28 PM

I will go ahead and grab up the Kings on the 11th and the Isles on the 25th. It's about time I made an appearance this season.

Howard isn't alone at fault

I agree with this on the 2nd goal. Smith let Tootoo skate in care free, Howard took the shooter but unfortunately the guy behind him was wide open to tap it in. Otherwise, that 3rd goal proved he's rattled and it's time to go.

Well there goes my fantasy goalie stats for the week.

Questionable 3 on 3 OT line decisions tonight. 

#2637248 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 15 November 2015 - 07:37 PM

I'm not prepared to blame coaching until at minimum the halfway point of the season. It's too early to tell, we just lost a few straight after winning a few straight. 


The players are not shooting, and that's the biggest problem contributing to the lack of offense. Alex Ovechkin is a top league leader in shots consistently every single season, and he is a league leader in goals every single season as well. If you are only tossing 15 shots at the opposing goalie per game, you aren't scoring many goals opposed to putting up 30+.


They need to stop playing so technical in the zone and looking for that perfect play and throw more turds at the direction of the net and jump on rebounds or even get lucky tips in front. The puck will bounce around and get past the goalie more often than if they are trying to force pass and turning it over constantly. 


It's frustrating to watch, I find myself yelling "Just SHOOT" at the TV more often than I had previous seasons. If I put blame anywhere right now, its the reservations the players have to put rubber on the goaltender.

Quality win, positive attitudes, intense hockey that felt like a playoff game. Red Wings win. What more could you want?

#2634279 Byfuglien - What would he cost?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 October 2015 - 10:41 PM

As a Buff fan, i'd love him here. I think he is at his best, even offensively, when he is back on defense. Having the flexibility to have a player capable of jumping up on wing and playing defense is a huge plus also. 


After the moves we made, landing Green and Richards, considering recent history, I don't really have much confidence in another big move to bring him here, but i'd embrace it and be thrilled. 


I don't think many would like the price though.

The thread was inevitable, but the approach was in poor taste. There are other threads, including the GDT, where tonight's game and recent play can be discussed. I don't see this continuing on as constructive, nor do I think that the initial post was intended for it to result that way. 


We've all been here before, these skids happen every season. Let's keep our heads screwed on and try to remain civil and respectful. 

#2605829 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 May 2015 - 10:47 PM

Couldn't this go in the "Things you'd like to see thread..."? Trying to follow two threads on the same topic is so confusing.

My thoughts exactly, merged them together. 


Let's keep like topics consolidated in the same thread, regardless if the offseason is generally a slower time of year for the forums here. 

#2604436 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 April 2015 - 09:12 PM

Been watching since the beginning of the streak, still doesn't sting any less after elimination. 


Another season come and gone, let's hope for some changes and a fresh start next year.


Let's keep the GDT civil in the coming days here regardless.

He was at the time one of the better right handed defenders available for cheap. He has a heavy shot from the point, he spent some time in a defensively responsible New Jersey organization and it seemed like a good fit.


At the time I agreed with the move, and even though he has been weak in the playoffs, I don't really regret it even to this point. Tonight he made noticeable mistakes, and this round hasn't been a good performance from him, but we are 3-3, not out and there's time to bounce back. 


Sometimes the vet players work out, sometimes they don't. For what he contributed in the season up to this point in the playoffs, calling for his head is a bit hasty. Let's see how the series finishes out.

#2596534 Trade proposals -looking ahead to next season

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 April 2015 - 08:27 AM

I'm gonna go ahead and lock this, I don't see the relevance for trade speculation talk with no substance or sources while playoffs are underway. There's plenty of time in the offseason to bring this up in the many trade rumor/speculation threads that may emerge.
