Williams - A+

He did us a huge favor by playing his way out of the lineup.

I wouldn't mind seeing it, but I'd rather stick with the lines we had. Just because they didn't score on their 3 shifts together doesn't mean there's no chemistry. I see it as a desperation move though. I don't think Babcock puts them together unless we're trailing in the 3rd next game.

#1958249 Rafalski or Schneider

Posted by Dano33 on 25 April 2010 - 04:03 PM

I did not like Schneider. I often thought he shot too much, instead of sometimes looking for a set-up that could lead to a better scoring chance. People give Rafalski too much s*** around here and he does make some mistakes, but I think he is the perfect partner for Lidstrom on the power play. Wrist shots are much more accurate and easier to deflect and it goes along well with Lidstrom being the slap shot guy on the other side. I wish they would leave Rafalski out for the whole 2 minutes on the power play because we need that right-handed shot from the point.

Bottom line is, Rafalski is not our problem. He wasn't today and he hasn't been since he's been here. Maybe he isn't worth 6 mil, but overall I think he has been very good for us.

#1937826 Will Buttman try to fix the playoffs?

All I am doing is ANTICIPATING and just trying to make it a FAIR series!!!!!!

You have no impact on this series. And just because you believe there is a conspiracy doesn't mean Bettman will do everything possible to screw the Wings. Please, just stop.

The Crosby Sucks chant doesn't seem as classless after that temper tantrum.

#1917254 What's up with Cleary?

2 points in 10 games comes out to 16.4 points for the season so it really is fairly out the ordinary for a 30 to 40 point player.

No, it isn't. Nobody is 100% consistent throughout an entire year. Last year he had 40 points and had a stretch where he had only 1 point in 10 games. It happens, it's a slump, it's not a big deal.

#1914327 Kicking to score a goal

Allowing players to kick makes for more razor sharp blades swinging around the net. If i were a goalie I wouldn't want to have to deal with that.
