#2668354 ECQF Game 1 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 3, Red Wings 2

GREEN - DD/Q

Kroner - Marchenko

E - reserved for like 12min a game in PK situations and the odd shift.

 

Put Kronner in the same classification as E if not less minutes. Atleast E tried to push players out of the way. Kronwall just skates backwards until the goalies mask is nicely inside his asscrack.

Bummed that we lost but I love the intensity.. At least they look like they give a s***; especially Abby and Richards. Gotta come out with that same hard hitting style game two.

 

I agree until the 3rd. The final 20 they looked like a little child cowering in the corner from stranger danger.

Enough bitching about the goal-tending. Its wasn't that bad. Hell the goals against Bishop were weaker than what Howard let in.

I wonder if Holland and Yzerman are shouting at each other in the press box?

Nah Holland is to busy kicking his tires.

It's amazing all the Howard hate on the 2nd goal when 95% of it is Helms fault.

At the bar. Waitress goes you guys doing good? Told her no we need a goal. Green scores. Made her sit down for a bit. My good luck charm!

Now get her number.

#2666959 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Holland's MO is to stand pat, sign a role player or two, and wait for a superstar to emerge from our recent draft picks.

 

To be fair in the cap world that is the proper way to do it.

The man wants to go home and spend time with his daughter with whom he has been away from for a lot of her formative years. Anyone criticizing him for this doesn't understand what is truly important in the long run. I say thanks for your service to the team Pav and I applaud you for making the right decision.

Because Howard = bad and Mrazek = good no matter what.

Good point. I forgot some people reject the reality that since his birthday Mrazek has the worste numbers of any starting goalie lol

Howard starting? ughh

Without him picking up for Mrazeks poor play the last month the Wings aren't in this position to clinch so why upset?

#2662237 3/26 GDT : Pittsburgh Penguins at Detroit Red Wings, 2:00 PM ET

I think one thing is apparent... The on-the-fly strategy of replacing older players (that've retired or whatever) with younger guys hasn't worked. We haven't had high level draft picks and the newer guys (for the most part) haven't stepped up to the level that we need them to for filling in the holes.

 

This has led to the state of mediocrity that we have now. I think it's been in a pretty steady decline since we were fighting these Pens for the Cup.

 

It works if those young guys turn into stars like Datts and Zetts and you make some smart trades. Neither has happened lately.

Ok so we're tied with Philly.  I bet you right now that Detroit better do something because I bet Philly wants it more than we do.

 

Its not down to Philly and Detroit. Philly is playing some of the best hockey in the league right now and will get in. The spot will be either Detroit, Boston, or the Islanders. Better to watch those teams results than Philly.

Blash needs to juggle lines when it is going bad.  I still cannot stand the fact that AA is on the 4th line.  AA - Dats - Mantha would be the best line on the team.

 

Blash has switched the lines up all the time this year. How people forget it was just last week he switched them up midgame against FLA and it resulted in a comeback win. Last night his combos got them a 4-0 lead. Why panic? Let your players play through it. Throughout the season he has been criticized on this board for not changing things up enough and then changing things up to much that players cant get good cohesion. You cant have both. 


I certainly have no answer, but it does appear Babs has earned that contract with the Leafs.

 

If by earn you mean be the worst team in the league then yes I guess so. Babs will never see the end of that contract. He will be fired come year 4 and it will take more than t hat for the Leafs to be respectable.
