#2465126 12/15 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 0

Posted by GoalieManPat on 15 December 2013 - 07:54 PM

Brutal loss. It's hard to watch this team right now, but we are fans in the good and the bad. It is just so frustrating and impossible to not make posts saying how horrible everything and everyone is and how it is the end of the world. Desperately need a win, but the Ducks are going to destroy this team on Tuesday. Just don't let Perry or Getzlaf score and I'll be happy. 


Well some are. You still have those with the standard "why do I even bother with this team" after every loss.

#1 priority: fix the PP!!! We could have won so many games with a half-decent PP. Stop playing Kindl on it. Eaves? Really? Stop with Alfie on the point. Make changes.


Exactly! Big issue here. Even my wife whos not the most knowledgeable on the players skillset mention "Why are Eaves, Cleary, and Kindl out on the power-play"

Because he can't score at an NHL level


And you can make this assumption after just one game?? Dats didn't score today as well. I guess he cant score at the NHL level too. Who would you have in his place? The likes of Miller and Eaves?  Did he look like a rookie at some points today? Yes. Did he make more impact on the game today than all but maybe two or three Wings players? Yes.

good luck with this team babs, no one looks inspired to play


Disagree. The youngsters always have jump. Tatar, Nyquist, and tonight Jurco are bringing energy to every shift. The problem is the older players. Bert and Cleary are bringing nothing. Alfie seems like he never came back from the last trip to Ottawa. If Kronwall could actually hit the net for once it might help to. Every chance he gets hes shooting field goals over the net. Dats doesnt look like hes 100%

This team is better than the 2002 Detroit Red Wings. 

Make sure you dont operate heavy equipment anytime soon as you are high as a kite if you really believe that. The 02 team had hall of famers on the 3rd and 4th lines. This team is still 1/3 spare parts from a junkyard.

#2458434 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by GoalieManPat on 27 November 2013 - 01:10 AM

Why does it seem like everyone is so eager to get rid of Alfie like he is a bad contract or something? The guy has come in and done great. Outside of Datsyuk and Hank he has the next best PPG on the team.

Greektown would be best to base out of. People mover stops there and you got food and gambling after  win. We park there every game.

Once again, Holland gets the entirety of the blame for everything bad and none of the credit for anything good. This is a viewpoint divorced from reality.

Holland is getting the credit for his early success by still having his job. Any other gm would have lost theres by letting this team stale like he has done. And you can say he gets the credit for drafting but until those players are up actually producing in the league there is nothing to give credit for. If he really trusted his picks he wouldnt keep blocking them by signing useless plugs like Cleary and Quincey

#2456693 What is Samuelsson's role?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 22 November 2013 - 01:43 PM

Sammy was a good acquisition at the time. It certainly seems that two years and $2m/per would have made better sense. Or even 1yr.


I disagree wholeheartedly. At the time it was a decision based on panic. Holland missed out on Suter and Parise and just grabbed whatever scrap he could. Then Sammy was coming off a year that he couldn't stay healthy and had health concerns still when signed. What happens? He plays only 4 games all year due to multiple injuries and then uses those injuries to block a buyout. Nothing about the the Sammy acquisition could be considered good. Both of Hollands panic signings that off-season (TooToo and Sammy) have no role with this team. Bad management there.

Maybe what they should do is trade #11 back to Ottawa if he doesn't pickup his game. This team needs to quite signing these old Vets cause they never play the way they can and should. #11 should start paying like his worth his 5.5 Million dollars if not he should give some of that money back to the team like Hasek did a few years back.


I wish players would start playing like Maurice The Rocket Richard did & Gordie Howe did two players that give 150% every game. Players like #11 are here for the money and not the Stanley Cup if for the Cup he'd give 150% every game.


These guys are professionals they need to start playing like they deserve to be in the NHL! The New NHL is bad. Their was nothing wrong with the 90's NHL Game! I say get rid of #11 & #90 what have they done lately? But get Injured! They shouldn't have signed them they should have signed #24 and #51 and bought back the same team they had last season.


The Coach needs to start coaching for once and he needs to start being more like Scotty Bowmen was and start showing some tough love to these supposed to be Detroit Red Wings Players. I'm very happy that Detroit Red Wings Won Finally they need to keep it up. 


This post is full of fail.  Yes the wings need to stop signing old vets but thats old vets like Cleary and Bert. Trying to validate your point using Alfredsson is even more fail. The guy is only out pointed by Pav and Z. He was brought in to be secondary scoring not lead the team. So common sense dictates that if hes only behind Pav and Z, who are expected to lead the team in scoring, then he is 100% fulfilling his job as secondary scoring. Keeping Brunner, he of 7 pts over half of which came in the first 3 games, and Fil would not have moved this team forward. They needed changes from a stale roster and at-least made an attempt at it. Please try again though.
