The bottom 6 has been huge for Detroit in this series.

Fail. They had it and gave away. And they have no one to blame but themselves.

I meant don't race them to 5 goals....has to be a low scoring game. Hope you understand now

 

I understood : ).  I was just purposefully being obnoxious for the sake of humor (in my opinion).  No offense intended.

Abs in is a big boost for sure, if not on the scoreboard well then at least in the hitting department. Weiss sits is, well expected... What Detroit needs to do is win those 2-1 games not allowing any mental mistakes, and Andy is more defensively responsible then Weiss. We aren't going to outscore the opponent that lead the league in goals, so try winning a different way. From what Weiss is shown (granted he is playing with Andy) he wont produce much if anything, and at this point its a coin toss who would score first be it him or Andy (again if either).

Weiss with a new coach could actually be a good thing, a fresh start for Weiss that is. Babs with this whole not signing until the seasons over really makes me wonder, is he that set on staying in D-town? So much has been made of this delay for a decision, whether he goes elsewhere only puts pressure on him, and somewhat on this team (even though Babs says otherwise). If he really wanted to stay in Detroit why go through this roller coaster where the damn Maple Leafs are asking "what if". I don't know but I got a feeling Babs might be on his way out... 

 

What other way is there to win besides outscoring the opponent?

I'd keep pav with zetty because zetty just doesn't look good enough to center his own line. Switch helm to center and have THREE good scoring lines and the solid 4th line.

Zetty-Pav-abby
Nyqyist-helm-ta tar
Weiss-shehan-jurco
4th line.

I think these lines would make the team much better. Nyquist and tatar both looked a lot better creating chances together. Shehan hasn't got it done well enough so drop him to the 3rd line to make that line better and put helm in his place.

 

 I think Datsyuk and Zetterberg should get split up to try and get things going more offensively all around.  Detroit needs more than one scoring line, and the 'kid' line isn't one right now.  Nyquist and Tatar on a line isn't working.

 

Tatar - Datsyuk - Helm

Abdelkader - Zetterberg - Nyquist

Jurco - Sheahan - Weiss

Miller - Glendening - Ferraro

 

Edit: Also, I wouldn't cry if Weiss sat... even if it is for Cleary.  I honestly think Cleary could have been more effective than Weiss has been thus far.  I might also be in favor of Smith coming back in as a change of pace on the back end as well...

Stamkos looks incredulous every time anything doesn't go his way... like that isn't even possible.

That hit on Ferraro after the offensive chance sure looked like interference.

Was there ever an explanation for Detroit getting the extra minor out of the scrum? Was it just the refs giving a special warning not to touch Stamkos? Cuz what Quincey and Stamkos did looked pretty equal to me.

Mrazek definitely made the decision to go with him in net look like a smart one.

 

Great to get a win out of that one any way. 

 

It still seems like maybe there should be a couple of different faces/numbers out there on ice next game, I think.

Everything you are doing there sucks. Stop doing all of that crap and shoot the damn puck.


#2592174 Brendan Smith

Posted by barabbas16 on 11 April 2015 - 07:37 AM

Kindl and Smith haven't panned out. Ericsson has been a decent profit considering where we drafted him. He should probably be traded but he isn't a bust. We kind of need all three of Marchenko, Sproul and Oullette to turn out great because trading for defenseman of quality is nearly impossible these days. And we have to admit that they will all need to be in the lineup soon, so Holland needs to make space.

 

I wonder if Jensen will get a look in Detroit next year.  The rest of those guys will still be waiver exempt, won't they?

Barely making the playoffs is always much better than barely missing them. 

 

Not the most ideal situation in doing so, but I'll take it considering the aforementioned alternative.
