#2406733 Trade Smith ASAP!

What your seeing is rookie mistakes. Yes something not seen very often on a Wings team that would rather sign 30+ yr old players than promote from within.

#2405771 Why is Cleary still on the team?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 May 2013 - 07:04 AM

Havnt read through the full thread but my opinion on Cleary is this. Ive been extremely frustrated with his play the last 12 months. Atleast he still goes out and gives it 100%. The problem is his body has taken such a beating him giving 100% isnt translating into much. Thank you for your service and congrats on rebuilding your career but its time to hang them up. If Holland re-signs him this offseason I will have lost all confidence in his management ability.

#2405770 Official Franzen VS Hossa

Posted by GoalieManPat on 16 May 2013 - 07:01 AM

At least Franzen doesn't dive like a coward. 


Hossa was diving for the rebound not to get a call. All on the ref for a terrible call there. Watch it again he is launching forward well before any contact. 


And Franzen would have to work hard and beat a player to get in the position to dive. Thats a rarity. 

#2405712 WCSF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (CHI leads series 1-0)

Howie was good tonight, but those first 2 goals he let in were weak by his standards. They were not softies, but he has shown he is capable of making those saves. he'll come out next game and prove it. The wings need to minimize their turnovers, and just shoot the damn puck. The PP needs to be better, they had 3 chances to take the lead and failed. If they score on one of those it's a completely different game.


A quick one timer from the slot to the upper corner by one of the top snipers in the league and perfect shot off the post from a man left wide open between the circles is considered weak? Good lord people.

Hossa is by far the better player. The only thing consistent in Franzens game is his inconsistency  When hes in one of his 20 game goal droughts he brings nothing else to the team with his floating around. Hossa plays hard every game and is atleast a threat the defense needs to pay attention to every shift even if hes not scoring. 

#2403985 Round One Report Card

Anyone grading Howard less than an A is out of there mind. In terms of top notch grade A scoring chances the Ducks doubled the Wings up on in them basically every game except game 7. His play is a big reason why the Wings moved on. 

#2398764 Should Howard be benched?

Jimmy just pee pee'd on this thread.

Howard stole that game for the Wings. Haters stay off him for atleast one night......maybe.

Sorry, i know there are defensive lapses but some goals are still stoppable. Esp game 1...



Edit: Damn phone apps...


Game 1. ....Where he gave up two goals. If he only gives up two goals a game, regardless of how they go in, hes doing his job. If the the Wings cant score atleast two themselves they are not doing theres.

I agree he is great at times. Love the guy. He just has lapses and hasn't proven yet that he is worth that money. Also agree that the Abby incident is what changed this game and shere the wings blew it.


Are you saying he had lapses in this game or just in general? Because he had no shot on any of the goals scored today.

Good job Howard way to keep it classy.


Your telling me you wouldnt punch Perry in the head in a lost game? Howard was the only one who showed up tonight. He earned the right to punch that little prick.

There was head contact in that hit, and he left his feet. I don't know what you people are seeing, or if you have your homer glasses on.

Reallyf****** dumb play by Abby


Learn the rules. The fact that the head took contact means nothing. The head has to be the principle point of contact on the hit. If it was just the head taking contact there would be no hits in any game ever. Abby got his shoulder, chest, and then head.

Am I the only one that feels like hat was the right call. He clearly left his feet and hit his head. This was the most obvious game misconduct i have ever seen. The only good thing is that he did this early enough that maybe Shanny will take this games suspension into account.


Its not the right call. The head has to be the principle point of contact. The principle point of contact was his body and then his head which = good hit. Also they called it charging. Look at he replay. Abby stops his stride well before  making contact. The call was a joke. The ref was 5 feet away looking right at it and made no call. The ref at center ice made the call.

#2395497 Impressed with our young core..

Posted by GoalieManPat on 04 May 2013 - 08:35 AM

Im impressed with them. The problem is I dont see the next Hank or Pav in the system right now. I see a bunch of good 2nd-3rd liners but not top 1st liners.

#2393438 Players who showboat after scoring

Posted by GoalieManPat on 02 May 2013 - 01:00 AM

Has everyone forgotten that this is a game. Games are meant to be fun. God forbid someone shows emotion because he might hurt the feelings of some delicate man on the other team. Celebrate all you want. As long as you are not directly skating to the other teams bench and taunting then who cares. This isnt golf. Its a sport fed by speed and emotion.


And Tatar isnt showboating in an earlier post. Hes pumping the Wings logo. Showboating would be something like point to his nameplate on his back. Why do people keep using this as there go to Wings showboating clip.
