#2465289 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Posted by MidMichSteve on 16 December 2013 - 04:32 PM

This in a festive holiday nut shell.

 

There's a lot of unreal expectations of how this team should play while plagued with so many injuries. It's no different than say the Blackhawks being down Toews, Sharp, Bickell, Seabrook, Crawford, Shaw, and Handzus with Kane just returning a couple games ago after being out with a concussion. You can't honestly expect them to continue to play like a top NHL squad with all of those guys missing from the lineup. 

 

If you are taking away that many key players from a team, have 3rd/4th line players on the top two lines, it's going to be a struggle. You need your core to win games. It sucks that right now we are on a 4 game losing skid, but it's not time to panic or jump ship. Wait until the end of the month when we get a few big names back in the line up and see how things go then. The season is 82 games long for a reason, and we're barely at the halfway point and still sitting in a playoff position even with the recent woes.

You said core.




#2460207 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

While the play was a dirty play,Zetterberg was not injured

You're right, he didn't. It sure wasn't for lack of trying on Weber's part. We also don't forget particularly dirty plays.

 

How's that? :)




#2459574 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

Can't believe some of you are still butt hurt over what Weber did to Z. I'd take Weber on the Wings in a heart beat. It wasn't that big of deal. Sure I was upset that night but let it go

Welcome to the forum.

 

You're new here so I'll explain. Most people here NEVER forget dirty plays that cause injury to any of our Red Wings.

Can't stand the f*****.

That being said, I would never wish injury on a player, especially on a non-hockey play where some ****** slams his head into the...oh.

 

.....and then makes light of it. Sorry, Weber. No sympathy from me.

Smith went on IR to get all the splinters removed from his ass.




#2446104 10/19 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Coyotes 5

Posted by MidMichSteve on 19 October 2013 - 07:36 PM


Edit: I'm here now. There is someone up in one of the suites who from far away looks very much like Bettman. I know it's probably not, but I can't fight the regret that I didn't try to smuggle in something nasty to dump on him...

Smack him with an octopus.

The Trebuchet is greener. It doesn't need fossil fuels.

 

Castle built with sticks or straw?




#2435810 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

Posted by MidMichSteve on 11 September 2013 - 10:10 AM

He has the heart of a lion. I'll miss him and wish him the best of luck, except when playing against the Wings.

Cleary, who played for the Red Wings' 2008 Stanley Cup championship team, was Detroit's second-leading scorer in the playoffs last season with four goals among 10 points. He appeared in all 48 regular-season games, getting nine goals and six assists.

"He's a good player," Holland said. "We liked him. He was a versatile player. He was a vocal guy in the locker room. He could play left wing, right wing and he could play with star players. Dan gave us some years of real good hockey.

"We want to wish him well."

#2434844 Any new Helm Updates?

Posted by MidMichSteve on 03 September 2013 - 06:33 PM

Helm, who has been battling back issues for the past eight months, has been skating regularly for a couple of weeks. Babcock said he “absolutely'' expects the third-line center to be ready for the start of training camp, Sept. 12 at Centre I.C.E. in Traverse City.

“I didn't see him today, so he must be doing really good,'' Babcock said. “He had another day off, I would assume. Things are going good for him. He must be ready to go.''




#2434475 Teemu Selanne to return for a final season

Posted by MidMichSteve on 30 August 2013 - 03:36 PM

That's hilarious! I'm glad he's playing another year.

 

Teemu wasn't always such a class act when playing against the Wings. :)
