#2660001 3/15 GDT : Red Wings at Philadelphia Flyers, 7:30 ET

I agree that's there is a mentality issue with the Wings. They still believe everything will be ok if they are just overly professional and methodic. The problem is they don't have the skill for that mentality anymore. They need someone with fire in their belly to lay in to the team.

Babcock also had the team whipped into shape this time of year and actually playing responsible hockey. This team has been a mess all season. Last season they just had that one long slump.

By having them "whipped into shape" do you mean fighting for the last two playoff spots just like they are this year.

Is this a coaching problem? The players have not been ready to play the last few games. From what I see, the defence, especially DD, is horrid. This is a passionless group of players. Tatar and Nyquist have been the greatest disappointments this year and can be specifically pinpointed to the Wings downfall.

Detroit not starting on time has been an issue for years now. It's not the coach it's the players

#2659585 3/13 GDT : Toronto Maple Leafs at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Just found out the final score ... I'm beyond words how effed this is, lost to the Leafs 1-0 ??!!  When we miss the playoffs by 2 pts, we can all come back to this game.  Feel like slapping all the forwards in the head ... can't even score 1 on Bernier!

 

This game, or the Columbus game, or the countless other games this year they have dropped points to lesser teams. They really need to stop playing down to their opponents.

Let's just be happy they stole two points on Monday. I figured they would be lucky to get a single point from this week's games. Sunday is very likely to be very ugly.

I think thats what he meant

I read it as he was saying the refs screwed us like others have said. If that's not what the OP meant I take back what I said.

Gotta be able to see the puck too. 55 standing directly in front and screening Mrazek... Tell me again why Smith isn't playing

Still got to make that save. If Howard let that in people would be calling to tar and feather him.

#2656014 2/27 Stadium Series GDT : Red Wings at Colorado Avalanche, 8:00 EST

Nice of the NHL and the city of Denver to put on such a spread and forum for all things Red Wings this weekend. See, the Avs need the Red Wings to be their playdate for something like this or they wouldn't even have an outdoor game there. Against whom? Calgary? Minnesota? New Jersey? The Wings could easily host 6 or 7 teams and have it be a huge success.

 

Also, if I am elected president the wall around Denver just got ten feet higher and Mike Keane is paying for it!!

 

Why build a bigger wall. Just use his nose

Its true they are always blowing it or coming back.

depends though jimmy is more than good enough to steal us a few but what we lack is scoring its got to change we cant win games 2-1 1-0 all the time jimmy did good his last outing but he cant save and score he did evrything he could but we didnt get any goals so its the main focus

 

Jimmy WAS capable of stealing games. The last couple years that has been the complete opposite. His last game was by far his best probably in two years so maybe hes finding his game but so far good games from him are the exception not the rule




#2648974 Kronwall out 2-4 Weeks after Knee Scope

Posted by GoalieManPat on 19 January 2016 - 03:01 PM

Smith and Kindl gone and call 2 up, that easy.

 

Sure he had a boneheaded play at the end of the Philly game but why would you get rid of Smith when hes finally playing like he belongs in the NHL. Putting up decent points for a 5-6 dman and a plus player while being one of the few guys that will drop the gloves. Sure he gets beat but at-least hes willing. Kronwall and Greens play should worry us more than Smiths.

#2634624 Looks like Tyler Bertuzzi is a ****** like his uncle

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 November 2015 - 10:03 AM

Had his last name been something other than Bertuzzi than nobody would care. Young kid does something stupid this isn't new. Part of development in the AHL is learning what to and not to do.


#2624220 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by GoalieManPat on 31 August 2015 - 08:06 AM

1. Moving Howard right now is one word. Dumb. Unless you get a quality backup in return you go into the season with a goalie going into only his 2nd real season who's regular season play is straight up bipolar backed up by Tom freaking McCollum.
2. I can't wait for 4-5 years down t he road when Mrazek is in the same spot as Howard with the fans. It doesn't matter how well he does the fans will always want the next guy.

#2608869 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by GoalieManPat on 20 May 2015 - 12:50 PM

Howard Berger ‏@Berger_BYTES 11m11 minutes ago

Can't confirm, but told in email from source #Leafs offered Babcock dual role of GM and coach. Why not, huh?

 

Lol if this is true then add it to the list of things Babcock said he wanted that ended up not being true. 

1. Biggest thing is where family wants to be. - Family wants to stay in MI

2. Money doesnt matter - Takes massive contract

3. Wants to win - Toronto is terrible

4. Is a coach and doesnt want to manage - Toronto offers coach/gm role.

 

Toronto it is!
