In Topic: Are the Wings a Contender?

20 December 2014 - 06:09 PM

No you dope...  try to follow along...  I'm saying that if a team wants to contend, they need to have their lineup intact.   A team like the Wings needs to have ALL of their top tier players healthy.  EVERYBODY knows Zetterberg has had serious lower back issues and when an opposing team targets that area, you need to send a message to the other teams who would love to see Hank sidelined down the stretch.    Doing nothing in this case is unacceptable...   More to the point was my comment about Hank and Pav playing embarrassingly bad of late and our lack of scoring.   Part of that could be because you have a world class player in Datsyuk playing with a good defensive forward like Helm WTF?  SURPRISE we aren't scoring!   Babcock is a good coach but he's overrated and doesn't make a change until it's way too late and the game is over.

 

Sooooooo does "sending a message" all of a sudden magically make Zetterberg's back healthy after he gets cross-checked?  Because it sure as hell doesn't prevent players from targeting our guys in the future.

The British accent makes me feel like I'm on a top secret mission to score goals

3.  Ericsson is probably not going anywhere for a long time, and we should all be thankful.  If our defense was some combination of Kronwall, Yandle, Green, Smith, Dekeyser, and those kids, they'd get eaten alive in the playoffs.  You still need big bodied, stay at home defenders in this league, and Ericsson is probably one of the most underrated ones in the league.  Kindl can go, Quincey can go, and (if Babs' use of Ouellet over Smith has shown) Smith could theoretically go.  But Ericsson isn't going anywhere. 


I think the biggest reason the Wings were so outmatched against the Bruins last year in the playoffs was because we didn't have Ericsson playing.

Thank you. 

 

So Crosby is sitting there looking like that amidst a mumps epidemic in the NHL, and the medical staff thinks "yeah, he's good to go."

 

They have homonymous hemianopsia

In Topic: wings tickets for the game friday 12/16

I don't know if they still do it, but you used to be able to get tickets for really cheap if you showed up and presented your college ID the day of the game. Ive never actually done this, though, so maybe someone else can chime in with a little more knowledge.
