#2509046 Babcock and Holland Talk About Stuff

Posted by GoalieManPat on 12 April 2014 - 09:38 PM

You really think Bert, Sammy, and Cleary would have been in the top 6? On a team with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen, Weiss, and Alfredsson? Coached by a guy who seems determined to make Abby a top-6er?


Since both Bert and Cleary got multiple chances on the top 6 before the rash of injuries Id say yes.

#2509043 Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

Posted by GoalieManPat on 12 April 2014 - 09:31 PM

While I think they both have bright futures, I'm just not ready to declare them NHL ready and have them as regulars in the lineup in the playoffs.  I don't think it would be a surprise to see a repeat of Brendan Smith 2013 playoffs. 


Why not? Lashoff has proven just as much that hes not NHL ready as them and hes already peaked.

#2508919 Babcock and Holland Talk About Stuff

You sound just like Babcock. Or maybe Holland. Either way, I'm confused.

 

No Holland sounds like this "Its a mans league!" and then signs Bert, Cleary and Sammy.

Its amazing how quickly Heatley turned to s***. Only Cheechoo has had a more recently bad turn downhill.

Theres no defending Franzens play. I dont care if hes only a 4 mill cap hit. Hes produced nothing in over a month. Guy brings nothing to the team if hes not scoring Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk

Sentimental reasons.... plus they couldn't really be worse than what's out there tonight.  Seriously.


You must not have watched Cleary this year.

Monster is awful. The Pens have about 15 shots and three have gone in the net. Sure, he won games the first half of the season, but his numbers aren't good at all after the new year.

Wings have controlled this game and then that goal goes in. Howard would have six pages of posts if he let that through.

 

Yet people wanted to anoint him the starter and drop Howard for a bag of broken sticks a month ago lol




#2507568 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Posted by GoalieManPat on 09 April 2014 - 02:21 AM

Kronwall getting hate? Only on LGW.

 

Its not hate pointing out that his weakest aspect is 1 on 1 defending.




#2505464 Question about Mantha

Posted by GoalieManPat on 03 April 2014 - 09:28 AM

I wonder If Holland is still considering calling him up this season. Not that we need him, but if we lock up a playoff spot it might be a good idea to let him play the last game. Then again, our team is finally developing great chemistry.

 

Unless he walks into Grand Rapids and scores a hat trick in his first 3 games Id say you have a better chance of winning the lottery than seeing him with the Wings. Remember hes been playing against kids. Lets see how he does against men in the AHL.




#2493378 If Kronwall isn't a #1

Posted by GoalieManPat on 09 March 2014 - 08:49 AM

I think what works against Kronwall is that he does a lot of things really well, but he isn't dominant in any aspect of his game.  He isn't a shut down type defenseman, he isn't a game changer offensively, the occasionally "Krowalling" is entertaining, but his overall physical game is lacking, and what GMP said about his shot.  It isn't to say I'm not a Kronwall fan, but I think the fact he's decent at most things, but not great at any one thing is what gives the impression he's not a #1 type defenseman.

 

Nail on the head. I like Kronner but hes not a true elite #1. Hes pretty much a jack of all trades master of none. The best #1 dmen have mastered atleast one part of the game be it offensively or defensively. Kronner would be a great complimentary dman. You put him and a top notch shutdown D or top notch offensive Dman and I think his game would be stronger. Thats what leads to me to label him more a #2.
