#2571542 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by barabbas16 on 17 February 2015 - 05:26 PM

 

Mother effer, I thought that was just me hearing that! It sounds like he's trying to prove how much he can remember. And I agree about Dave Strader. I'd take Larry Murphy over Ken.

 

He still isn't anywhere near as bad or annoying about it as Pierre McGuire.

I don't know, Quincey has been pretty good this year and D seems like he's in a bit of a sophmore slump.  


What what what!? Take that back immediately! You must praise DeKeyser without ceasing. And you must, under no circumstances, praise Quincey.


#2570407 Good to see they're getting along

Only chance he had is if he continued to play here and retired as a Red Wing. But it would still be doubtful.


 

You had to be "that guy" :lol:

 

I disagree.  If Sergei Fedorov played his entire career in Detroit and retired as a Red Wing, I have little doubt that his number would have been retired.




#2568374 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by barabbas16 on 04 February 2015 - 07:10 PM

Raise your hand if you've watched a lot of Leafs / Predators games since Franson has entered the league, and followed his individual play very closely... :bye1:

 

People that don't think Franson will be worth it or won't fit in here, clearly are unaware of the type of game this guy plays... I've said it before and I'll say it again, Cody Franson is exactly the type of defenseman this team needs. Him alone would make us an instant threat come playoff time. He is worth the "asking price" as a rental, and he would be worth re-signing after this season. So what, if we have to give up one of our defense prospects to fit him in here long term, he'd be worth it...

 

He's a RH shot, which Detroit needs.  He puts up points from the back end, something else Detroit is looking for.  He clearly seems to be a top 4 caliber guy in general.  He's big enough not to get pushed around.  He shouldn't cost anywhere near what a guy like Yandle would.  And, he's not injury prone like Green.

 

Is it only the unknown about his future contract that is turning people off?.... because he seems to check a lot of boxes.




#2567635 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by barabbas16 on 31 January 2015 - 10:46 PM

I think Landon gets another look and maybe Callahan.
I like Yandle, even more now that it seems Kronwall's offense had dried up a bit. I think they would be an awesome pair. I'd give them any D prospects who don't project to be as good as him (I know duh right) a pick and Jurco.
Honestly though, I'm not very good with making trade proposals. Too much NHL on Xbox.

 

Kronwall is on pace for 8 goals and 38 assists (46 points) this season.  He had 49 points (8 goals and 41 assists) last season.  In 2012-13 (lockout season) he had almost exactly the same production as this season so far - one more assist and the same # of goals through 48 games.  How exactly has his offense 'dried up'?




#2565501 Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

Posted by barabbas16 on 21 January 2015 - 11:02 PM

I honestly didnt realize that he still played, much less for the Avs.

 

He is their leading scorer, sadly.




#2562079 Franzen on IR

Posted by barabbas16 on 09 January 2015 - 04:39 PM

Franzen couldn't score in a women's prison with a handful of pardons.

 

And he still scores more than Jurco.




#2560659 Time for Teemu?

Posted by barabbas16 on 04 January 2015 - 08:08 PM

Who out of Zetterberg, Tatar, Nyquist, Franzen, and Jurco do you think he'd play better than?  Those are the guys, other than Helm and Abdelkader who are playing a banging role that Pulk can't, that have been on the wing in the top 6, depending on if Zetterberg is at center or not.

 

Jurco is on pace for about 4 goals this season, isn't he?  I don't think he's really blown anyone's expectations out of the water this year.  I wouldn't shed a tear if he sat for a bit in favor of Pulkkinen.




#2560543 1/3 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Canucks 4

Posted by barabbas16 on 04 January 2015 - 12:43 AM

Holy crap - Ken and Ozzie seemed completely incapable of not talking about Ryan Miller tonight.  I understand that it is a relevant story line and he was playing well, but can we keep the 'opposing goaltender is so freaking awesome I just pissed myself at his awesomeness' conversation to, I don't know, less than half the game?  I might as well have listened to the Vancouver broadcast as much as I wanted the announcers to shut the hell up tonight.




#2557994 12/19 GDT : Islanders 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by barabbas16 on 19 December 2014 - 10:15 PM

Pretty sad you can't even tell the truth around here. I predicted a loss earlier and I was made fun now people are bitter about it. People are hilarious.

 

Everyone hates the guy that says 'I told you so.'  No one says 'it takes a big man to admit when he's right.'

 

If you predicted a loss, I am sure your post is still there for anyone to look at and see that you were right.  You are just purposefully being obnoxious.

 

There's a whole bunch of truth for you.  See?... you can even tell it around here.




#2557977 12/19 GDT : Islanders 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by barabbas16 on 19 December 2014 - 10:07 PM

Deserved loss.  Islanders beat the Wings in all facets.  Interesting to note, though, that the 2 Islander goals could have been easily avoided if Ericsson does his job and keeps Nelson from getting to that puck and Sheahan figures out how to do anything besides hand the puck to an opposing player wide open 5 feet front of the goal.

 

Babcock has got to find a way to wake up this offense.  They're lucky to have 3 points out of the last five games as anemic as the offense has been.

 

I wish Nyquist had slammed his stick into Hamonic's knee after he got up from being cross checked at the end.




#2555946 Boston to host 2016 Winter Classic

Posted by barabbas16 on 12 December 2014 - 11:08 AM

I might care about this.... if the outdoor game deal hadn't already been completely watered down and ruined with the flood of other outdoor games besides the Winter Classic.


#2555703 12/10 GDT - Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by barabbas16 on 10 December 2014 - 11:03 PM

Yeah they suck in the shootout.  But, that's just a distraction from the main issue tonight, which was failing to put more than one puck in the net.... at home... against a backup goaltender... and a team that played the night before.

 

Score some freaking goals in regulation and you won't have to deal with your sucky shootout abilities.




#2552636 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by barabbas16 on 29 November 2014 - 09:29 AM

No, they're not.  Howard has had one good playoff run in his career, and even then, he didn't get us to the Conference Finals.  On top of his mediocrity, the defense is too unimpressive.  

 

If healthy, this is a team that can finish in the top 4, but they're not built for the playoffs.  They showed that last year, even though they got healthy by playoff time.    

 

Zetterberg and Howard didn't play the whole series last season due to health issues.  I wouldn't consider a team missing its captain (one of the team's regular top point producers) and the starting goaltender to be "healthy," myself.




#2552346 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by barabbas16 on 27 November 2014 - 04:34 PM

 

I disagree there. He is right around 20 pts a season average. Thats not good when your supposed to be an offensive defensive. When you can put up 40+ pts a season as a dman being weak defensively can be overlooked. 20 pts no way. Plain and simple hes just not a good NHL D-man. Like I said in my previous post for where he was drafted he was a major bust.

 

2005 #19 pick - Jakub Kindl - 231 GP, 55 Pts

2006 #19 pick - Mark Mitera - 0 GP, 0 Pts

2007 #19 pick - Logan MacMillan - 0 GP, 0 Pts

 

Major bust is a bit excessive.
