#2380668 Player Hits Ref With Stick

Posted by GoalieManPat on 05 April 2013 - 08:09 AM

Props to the linesman for not going crazy after the player and doing his job,

#2380617 Red Wings lack offensive creativity

Posted by GoalieManPat on 05 April 2013 - 12:02 AM

This seems to still be relevant.


Nothing....just nothing.


Not one player in this lineup can be counted on to score when we REALLY need one.


I can count on Hank or Pav to assist on the goal, but no one to score it.


It will continue to be relevant until Holland gets back to doing his job and building a winning roster. Not a roster of two stars and spare parts. 

#2380600 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 2 @ Coyotes 4

Glad datsyuk decided to take a night off. Anyone that thinks that euro is top 5 in anything other than being lazy and turnin the puck over is a fool. We need a hard working top player.


lol Troll fail

#2380362 Babs vs. Kenny

Posted by GoalieManPat on 04 April 2013 - 06:37 PM

cleary and tootoo  Emmerton should rotate as our scratch guys


Fixed that for you. Most nights Tootoo is the best energy guy on the ice. 

#2380338 ryan clowe haters

Posted by GoalieManPat on 04 April 2013 - 05:27 PM

to the ryan clowe haters who thought he sucked with his 0 goals was washed up and laughed at me for saying the wings should go hardcore for him .... i know its just one game but 2 goals 2 assists first game as a ranger



suck it  lol


could of had a  6"2 225 pd hitting machine that also fights and shows up bigtime in the playoffs .... but its ok we got samuelsson and bertuzzi



yes its just one game but i look forward to seeing him produce just to prove the haters wrong .... big missed opportunity


ZOMG GIVE HIM AN EXTENSION NOWWWW!! Why do I have a sneaky suspicion youve been waiting a couple weeks for him to finally score so you could come in and try and give some validation to things youve been posting. HE had a good game. Good for him. But based on his play this season hes more likely to finish the season like the first 28 instead of the last one.

#2379883 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

Posted by GoalieManPat on 03 April 2013 - 07:08 PM

How active did you really expect him to be? What big moves do you think he could have made that would have done anything more than just move the team maybe into the 2nd round? The only thing Holland failed at today was not moving Flip. Come summer Holland will overpay just to keep him, as Holland didnt have the stones to move him, and basically we will have a Franzen 2.0 contract. 

#2379157 An interesting point about our apparent deadline strategy

Posted by GoalieManPat on 03 April 2013 - 08:45 AM

Considering he sat out 20% of the games with injury, you taking that into effect?  Being as that you said 82 games, I would suppose not.


Still 20 points in 29 games is nothing to sneeze at.  Especially for his cap hit.


The problem with Franzen is he brings nothing to the game other than scoring. So when hes not scoring hes almost useless. He doesnt hustle to put pressure, hes nowhere near a physical presence, and his defensive play is less than stellar. Despite his size and snarl the only thing frightened by Franzen is Kanes mouthguard. When you take his whole game into account Franzen is not worth his cap hit or term of contract.

#2373573 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by GoalieManPat on 25 March 2013 - 01:28 AM

Lets not get too sure about this until it happens.  Detroit's future is f***knows, Edmontons is possible Dynasty. 


No such thing as a Dynasty in the cap world. Edmonton looks great now for the future. Lets see how great they are when all those #1 pick are looking for big money on there 2nd contracts. 

#2373571 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by GoalieManPat on 25 March 2013 - 01:15 AM

If this were last season or the season before when the Wings had a legit shot at the Cup I would say go for it. The Wings are more than an aging Iginla away from being a contender. The Wings are at the start of a transition. Lets not set that transition back another 2 years by trading prospects. I would however trade Iginla for Franzine if thats all it took.

#2370462 Brunner downgraded to the third line!?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 17 March 2013 - 05:25 AM

He hasn't really done anything in 10 games. Maybe the league has figured him out. Miller has been playing above his game lately, and is better defensively. Like said above, he probably got moved down, away from the Twins. He better start chipping in on offense, or he'll be watching games from the press box.


If Franzen can go 15+ games without a goal multiple times the last couple years and never drop off the top two lines then Brunner should be safe from the press box. Especially since Brunner has more points and twice as many goals as Franzen this year. 

#2370459 Brunner downgraded to the third line!?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 17 March 2013 - 05:17 AM

Babcock is working on this new strategy that involves having 4th liners play on your top two lines. He believes it will take the league by storm. 

#2369933 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 March 2013 - 09:23 AM

See my comment, he wanted to play on a line with them.


Of course he is going to say that. The guys is a great team player. Hes not going to say "These guys are terrible and I would benefit from playing with someone other than the worst two forwards on our team this year" no matter how much he may think it. 

#2367704 Brunner to go with Tootoo and Tatar?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 10 March 2013 - 09:59 PM

No line is good without Abdelkader!

#2366852 Datsyuk - Cleary - Abdelkader

Posted by GoalieManPat on 09 March 2013 - 11:20 AM

I actually would like Abby dats and Tatar. Abby is a third line guy but no one else deserves the spot...


Abby is a 4th line guy at best. Actually our guys on the 4th liners are out producing Abdelkader without playing with Datsyuk. The more Babcock has this terrible line together the more hes pushing Datsyuk back to Russia.

Jahvid Best-Datsyuk-McCollum


I dunno. I think Titus Young might be a better option on the right. Although he might line up on the left sometimes. 

#2366180 wings arent winning the cup

Posted by GoalieManPat on 07 March 2013 - 06:17 PM

With your great powers of seeing the future can the OP give me the next lottery numbers?



Come on bud. I could have told you before the season started this team wasnt winning the Cup.
