#2508918 Have the Wild Hit Their Ceiling?

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.

I think Kronner is a decent #1. Hes not great or elite but he gets the job done. I wish he was more of a shut down defender as this team clearly lacks one. Kronner also at times cant hit the ocean with thrown rock while standing on the shore. There will be stretches where every shot he takes flys high and wide. Hes also taken a notch down in the physical game. I mean whens the last time someone truly got Kronwalled? The other big problem I see with Kronner is bigger forwards have there way with him.

If Gustavsson is now played game after game, the clock will start ticking towards the inevitable reoccurrence of his legendary groin muscle pull.

 

Sooooo got any lottery numbers for me?




#2493098 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Howard gives up 3 last night, one of which was a terrible unlucky bounce and another a complete defensive breakdown, and gets crucified by the fans after the game. The next night Gus gives up 4 and looks shakier than Howard yet the offense bails him out with 7 goals and not a peep about his less than stellar game. More proof that Wings fans will never be happy with a goaltender and will always be wanting "the next one" instead of the current one.
