#2638598 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 21 November 2015 - 12:37 PM

You are making my point for me. The Red Wings are not far away from a decade of nothing happening. I know Zetterberg is NOT the reason the Red Wings don't come out looking like the same team every game, but the fact is that they've been an inconsistent team for a while now. I think Larkin represents that same type of glimmer that Yzerman represented. He's the face of the franchise now, and the player that stabilizes the team. We are talking about Larkin and excited to see Larkin EVERY single game. We know the Wings can win any game because of him. That's the kind of player you make captain.

 

Larkin is NOT the face of the franchise, get a grip. Half of hockey fans I talk to don't even know who he is yet

Larkin with Dats. Calling it now they're going to be phenominal together... Watching Larkin play early on I instantly thought he and Dats would excel together




#2636597 Smith-Kronwall

Exactly. The stat is relevant. Dismissing it is silly.

 

I'll jump in and agree +/- is relevant, but not as telling as some may think. You have to look at it a certain way

 

For example, Larkin being +11 on our team says something.

 

When OV was -30 and scored 50 goals, thats absolutely pathetic.

 

If someone is -15 and theyre team is in last place and everyone else is around -15, its a team stat.

 

If someone is a career +400 player, such as Lidstrom, it shows that his teams were always relevant and he played a huge part in that

#2635287 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

I love Helm but hes taken a step backwards physically. Its most likely due to the injuries but he used to be a wrecking ball out there.

 

I'd like him on the team but its true, we can't take him back at his next salary so he's gotta go. Would be nice to try and get a return for him




#2635114 Play Coach - When do you pick a goalie

Posted by WingsallTheway on 04 November 2015 - 08:35 AM

I'm totally fine with whats been happening. What's wrong with having two goalies rotating that are both capable of winning every night? 

 

It's only going to last for one season so enjoy it

I'm always 50/50 on whether to take you seriously or not. With the former option in mind I'd like to point out that Larkin and McDavid are playing big minutes. You want to play Athanasiou on the 4th line. Silly. In fact, that mentality makes "an-ath-of-you".  ;)

 

People seem to think speed = 4th line

I'm the father of the Red Wings "GM" ? I feel proud.

#2634742 5 Game Homestand

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 November 2015 - 12:53 PM

0-5.

 

 

 

 

I actually think 4-1 with the lone loss coming to Toronto. We play as good as the team against us is in the standings. I'm sure there will be an OT win mixed in there




#2634700 Looks like Tyler Bertuzzi is a ****** like his uncle

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 November 2015 - 09:43 AM

Actually you can. 

 

Jamie Benn (who fit into this clown category) is leading in points and goals in the league and his team is currently ranked 1 in the western conference. 

 

Shea Weber's team's not doing too bad either. 

 

I don't think we can ever compare Tyler Bertuzzi to Shea Weber and Jamie Benn....

...but where does he go?

 

I mean, really?  Who wants his 5.292 cap hit?

 

Mrazek




#2633325 Mike Green out 2-3 weeks

Who do we blame this on

 

Cleary. Hate that guy.




#2632460 Janmark nylen makes the Dallas roster

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 October 2015 - 03:21 PM

At this point I'd take janmark over Richards.

 

Richards = Emmerton

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obviously not haha but yeah I've been totally unimpressed. His backcheck during a goal the other night was just horrific
