#2633825 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 October 2015 - 04:38 PM

This thread is very premature and dumb. You ever get a promotion at work? Usually it takes a bit of time to adjust to the new position. This isn't any different

I know... I know.. It is way too early to tell if the Jeff Blashill experience will be celebrated or despised.

#2631882 10/17 GDT: Detroit Red Wings @ Montreal Canadiens, 7:00 EST

You're selling Kronwall short. Lots of people do.  He consistently posts as good, or better, seasons than all the other 1A defenders.  Yet he never gets any love.  He plays in every situation.  Is very good on both sides of the puck.  Hell, he had more powerplay points than Duncan Keith AND Drew Doughty last season.  And he's an excellent penalty killer.  Yet for some reason people say he's not a top guy. 


I don't agree. 

#2631187 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Just spoke w/Dan Cleary who will report to Grand Rapids on Tuesday. Looks forward to mentoring young players: "I just needed some time."

#2631146 10/16 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by derblaueClaus on 16 October 2015 - 10:59 AM

Mrazek is getting the tougher assignments for sure.


Correct, because Howard always gets those bottom feeders with T like Tampa Bay, while Mrazek has to play cap era dynasties with C like Carolina.


I'm pretty optimistic this one will be better than the last one against the Hurricanes. Tats is due with a goal and we did look fantastic at home so far so I'm going with 4:1 Wings (Tats, Pulks, Abby, Jurco).

#2630649 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by krsmith17 on 14 October 2015 - 06:27 AM

Well the good news is, we have found a capable replacement for that bum Ken Holland... I mean, what does he know anyway? Guy clearly has no idea about player development... Now, Bill Merzeench and MileHighWingsGuy, they get it... Why "develop" a kid in the minors when you can throw him into the fire right away? Develop schmelop I say... The one player we didn't take our time with developing in recent memory is Jurco. He was a point per game player in the AHL, and he obviously didn't need more time down there, because he's tearing s*** up in the NHL now. Then we have guys like Nyquist and Tatar that toiled away in the AHL for years, and they were obviously ready when they were 19 or 20, guys were stars right off the draft table... Another thing, these idiot hockey analysts really need to stop with all the "Red Wings do it right". "Ken Holland's development philosophy of seasoning prospects is proven". F***ing Bulls***! Ken Holland doesn't know s***! Hand the reigns over to these guys...

I'm so sick of this STUPID argument!!!! If we had Lindros, Gretzky, Lemieux, and Yzerman all 19 years old, half of Red Wings fans, so drunk on Ken Holland's idiotic excuse for not knowing when players are ready = "over ripening", would say they want them getting first line minutes in Grand Rapids. mIt's the dumbest thing I've ever heard! I swear to God I think Drew Miller gives half the fan base free lower bowl tickets to keep everyone saying how every good young player should develop in Grand Rapids three more years!!


Man....calm down and please don't put words in my mouth. My post said NOTHING about "over ripening". I said that I would rather AA be playing first line minutes in GR, then 4th line minutes Detroit. You love the idea of putting every young kid on the main roster, go become an Oilers fan. Also, my last set of comments had NOTHING to do with Miller. Miller could go down with an injury and I would say the same thing. Just because everyone doesn't agree with your philosophy doesn't mean you need to have a tantrum.

#2630265 10/13 GDT : Lightning 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by kipwinger on 13 October 2015 - 10:37 AM

I realize that Jurco on the 4th line isn't ideal, but I'm very wary about using it as too much of a crutch either.  Last year Stephen Weiss scored 25 points in 52 games on the fourth line.  Kindl scored 13 points in 35 games with almost no ice time.  Glendening had 12 goals from the fourth line. 


He's got to get on the board.  If he does that, he'll get an everyday spot.  And if he has an everyday spot, the next time the lines need juggled, he might well end up with a little more icetime. 


But he has to produce despite the limitations in playing time.  It's not impossible, it's just hard.  But we've seen it happen before.

I don't think that's a true sign of the apocalypse.


I think you're wrong.

Correlation certainly does not equal causation, nor does it imply responsibility for all cases of Parkinson's. Even considering causation as an option, stating that head trauma caused Parkinson's in specific cases does not imply that head trauma is the *only* cause or risk factor for Parkinson's. It is a neurodegenerative disorder that probably can be brought on by a number of causes and affected by numerous risk factors. One of which seems to be head trauma. Which, to me, seems perfectly plausible that neurological trauma could potentially lead to a neurodegenerative disease down the line.

Science is awesome.

*thumbs up*

I'm not sure whether or not this is directed at me, but it reads as a possible passive-aggressive/sarcastic shot fired in my direction.
If that is the case, I don't know why my posts have cause aggravation for you, but I apologize for any bother the additional sidebar on Parkinson's caused for you. 

And, I was not trying to suggest that diseases can only have one cause... or that Parkinson's or any of the other conditions you just brought up are easily prevented.


It wasn't.  But after rereading it I understand why it looks that way.  I was just generally being snarky about many folks preference for overly simplistic answers on this particular topic.  Again, not directed at you at all.
