#2515520 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 24 April 2014 - 10:12 PM

next year should be a lot better... with Weiss, Alfie gone, Z+D healthy, Sammy+other pointless cap eating vets gone, etc. 


I am 100% certain we said something similar after the Chicago series last year.


Until the guy who made this team leaves, we're going to continue to get a parade of over-ripe youngsters and stupid old and fragile vets who don't contribute.

So has Holland by not improving this defense over the years.  We've got one defenseman hurt, so that results in a scrub like Lashoff having to be inserted into the lineup. What does that say about our depth?  


Slow down.  I'm not going to defend anything Holland has done.  But other than Datsyuk, Boston has dominated every single legit NHL player on this roster as well as the AHL-level defense.


This team has been barely squeaking into the playoffs the past few years for a reason.  they aren't that good.  Boston is on a completely new level compared to Anaheim last year.

It's looked like a power play for the last couple minutes....Rask is saving Boston.

Wifey works for Nationwide and scored some playoff tickets for Game 3 in Columbus next Monday.  I'll be close enough to be heard :lol:

I'm not usually a big Scott Hartnell fan, but the playoff series two years ago where he basically baited Cindy into losing his mind (and with it, Cindy's team) was one of the greatest stretches of epic awesomeness I've seen since the Wings won their last Cup.

1 more point and we're in for sure?  


Yes - Detroit and Columbus hold all the tie breakers with Washington and NJD.

I hate Columbus almost as much as I hate Anaheim and San Jose combined.


LOL why is that?

Mrazek is going to make Howard expendable in a couple years but he's not ready quite yet.

Pittsburgh's got the two best players in the world up front. As long as they're both healthy they can cope with most injuries. I wouldn't say they have as many quality players out of the lineup as we have either. But sure, it's impressive that they're not struggling at all with so many d-men out. 


Tampa's not doing much better than us. They're 5-3-2 and we're 4-4-2. Once again, other than Stamkos and Hedman they're not missing as many valuable pieces as we are. 


Boston? Eriksson and Iginla are good players but that's like us being without Franzen and Alfie, which we would easily survive. Other than that they're not terribly hit. 


Columbus? I'm not really aware what injuries they have, but they're 13th in the conference so maybe in their case injuries offer a shakeup to improve their play? Anyway, again, they're not exactly dominating with their 5-4-1 record. 


For s***zburgh, Malkin hasn't been playing much and has been dinged all year, yet they are probably the best team in the conference along with all of their d-men being hurt. 


Tampa isn't doing better than the Wings, but when they were at full strength, they were playing better than the Wings did.


Boston has several role players out along with losing Horton to columbus and with Thornton being a moron, they're even shorter.


Columbu is missing its Vezina winner, Gaborik hasn't played in over a month, Horton hasn't played this season, Wisniewski hasn't played in a week and now Prout is out.  Yet they've crept back into the playoff hunt.


Detroit isn't the only team with injuries.  It's an excuse to complain about something everyone else has to deal with.  The issue is Detroit's depth isn't very good or hasn't really played at the NHL level and is therefore inexperienced.  That's entirely on the GM.

#2419689 What would you give up for Malkin?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 13 June 2013 - 12:06 PM

LOL thanks Pens....you're getting older, you have big time holes in the defense, you goalie is a headcase and a sieve and now you lock up Shrek long term but along with Crysby, you have something near 30% of your cap (which is going down) tied up in two players?
