#2244250 Losing: a reoccuring theme

Posted by kylee on 11 January 2012 - 08:31 AM

We need to make a move to get us on par with San Jose. Albeit we were extremely close to making history last playoffs in coming back from a 0-3 deficit I think then and now that our main problem is team defense plain and simple. Our team d was fantastic in 08 when we won the Cup. How to fix that? I'm not really sure. Another one of our struggles is timely scoring as LeftWinger and others point out, Franzen and others need to step up Ans score the big goal. But if this team continues to do this we need to make a trade. I'd listen to offers for Franzen but I highly doubt anyone will want that contract.

#2235078 Filatov traded to Sens for second round pick

not surprising AT ALL to see Filatov jump ship and go to Russia. One of the many Euros who don't have the work ethic for the NHL game.

#2234839 2010 Playoffs Under Realignment

They haven't yet decided how the third round will go. If they just reseed, then yes the wings could play the sharks for the cup

I really hope that reseeding happens then. More exciting matchups.

#2214432 Filppula

Posted by kylee on 12 October 2011 - 11:47 PM

as others have noted, Filppula in the first few games does indeed look more aggressive in the offensive zone, and if he keeps it up, eventually they will start getting buried more often than passing the puck all of the time. Looking for Fil to finally break the 20-25 goal mark this year which only makes him that much more of a solidified two way forward.

how absolutely perfect that on Peter Forsberg jersey retirement night their opponent is the Red Wings. Now, let's see the guys ruin the night and take a 3-0 or 4-1 win. Who knows...maybe honor the old rivalry with a couple scraps? A guy can dream, go Wings!

Love how the OP makes it seem like Huddles isn't doing crap in the offseason while the link says he's been working out in Montreal. Undeserving Hudler hate.

^well then that's a perfect slogan for the Blues.

#2204782 Anyone else a little excited

Posted by kylee on 22 August 2011 - 05:54 AM

I've been excited about this since I heard about the signing. I think Commie and Ericsson will make a great bottom pair (hopefully E picks up a thing or two about the physical side of the game). Assuming Kindl is the 7th D, everyone in the top 6 except Lids (and E if he can't learn) can lay some decent hits from time to time. I'm really looking forward to watching a defense that can bring that physical element I feel we've been lacking.

not to rain on the Ericsson parade, but people have been hopeful of him turning into a big mean defenseman since Grand Rapids -- i just dont see it happening. A more realistic expectation of him, i think, would be for to him to just play in our own zone more soundly, make the simple plays, and go from there. Sure, it is certainly possible that the Red Wings can tap some of his unused skills, perhaps on the 2nd PP since one of the years in the AHL he won the hardest shot competition during their all star game, and i think we all would love to see him actually play his size, but to me, thats just wishful thinking. You cant just teach someone to play rough, you either have it or you dont.
