#2543399 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Posted by kipwinger on 22 October 2014 - 01:21 PM

Everyone that is crying that we didn't have enough offense is stupid. Yes, two goals won't win you MOST games but SOMETIMES it's enough to win a game. This is hockey, you guys know that it's not always going to be high scoring. We scored two goals yesterday in a very TIGHT game. You've never seen a hockey game end 1-0 or 2-0? It happens!! Yes of course we could have took advantage of the Power Play but we didn't. Bottom line is we scored more than they did and we should have won. You're not going to win many games when goals are taken away from you. Absolute bull call and took away a highlight goal away from one of the best players in the game. I seriously want to crush Montreal so bad the next time we play them.

 

You're right.  We are stupid.  I've changed my tune; from now on I'll form my impressions based on what should have happened.

Howard isn't horrible in shootouts, but he isn't great either. Last year he ranked 12th in league in shootout % (if you count starting goalies only). 12/30 is slightly above average.

With this lineup, I didn't.  We did get 3 of 4 points.  But they need to improve in shootouts.  

 

It starts with Howard.  He can't let beach balls get past him each time there's a breakaway.  And yeah, he played a good game, but still, he needs to be better in shootouts.  Whether you like them or not, they're a part of the NHL, and for bubble teams like the Wings, they're immensely important.  

 

This one actually started with Nestrasil looking like a 6 year old boy trying to score on his dad.

Whatever, I leave the business end to you. I just want him gone. 

 

No sir the business end comes down to Wings management.

Apparently they tried to reach Holland for comment but he usually has his phone off when golfing.

Legwand's been pretty good tonight....for what its worth. What has also counted against us is a total lack of chemistry on most lines. They look like strangers.. And Babs has been stubborn.

Fire Holland

 

cut Franzen/Lashoff/Kindl/Weiss/Sammy/Cleary.  don't resign Bert or Alfie.  Dangle Howard as trade bait.

 

Blow it up.  Bring in a new GM (Jarmo in Columbus would be epic for this franchise and I think they could get him too) and rebuild.

 

Why would Jarmo jump ship? He's got a good thing going in Columbus.

That ref is tougher than franzen.

Refs may be horrible today, but come on, listen to yourselves people. Totally unnecessary to be happy about a ref taking a puck to the face.

So Kenny traded a top prospect for a future FA and aging C who's been playing a 4th line winger...

#2508304 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 April 2014 - 09:55 PM

You guys are forgetting Malkin didn't play. Not sure if he's going to be ready for the playoffs or not but he's an ENORMOUS factor. I would have loved the win to cap off a great night though. 23 years it is. Go Wings!

 

You're forgetting Cleary will be back in the playoffs.

 

This is the time of year he lives for.  He doesn't care about the rest of the season.  He rises to the occasion in the clutch, when most of us would fail under similar pressure.
