#2637323 11/16 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Senators 3 (OT)

Posted by Echolalia on 16 November 2015 - 01:30 PM

Miller got promoted!!! Ha ha ha ha. Gee, I wonder why we cant score and keep losing. Miller's consecutive game streak in tact. Wings playoff streak bye bye. Just put Jurco in for Miller and we are solid. What is so hard about that?

Why are you so insistent on replacing Miller with Jurco of all people? If we want a player who can't score on the ice, I think the guy who's at least made a career out of the defensive side of the game is the better option.

That would be dumb since Smith isn't actually playing. And would be called trolling, which isn't allowed ;)

Exactly. When something goes wrong, the instinct here is "how can I blame Howard or Smith for this?" and people go to great lengths to try to justify the most ridiculous scenarios. Sometimes they do screw up, but a lot of times they just happened to be in the same building when a goal was scored or a turnover occurred. It's only a matter of time before people are saying "well it's smith's fault because he beat up Pulkkinen in practice and therefore Pulky was a half step too slow and that allowed the lane to open up and that's why they scored on us it's all Smith's fault he's so bad he kills us even when he's not playing!!!"

#2636857 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

Abby was going to be a career Red Wing one way or another.  Holland could have either done it with one contract and prevented other teams from making offers and potentially running up his cost on subsequent deals, or he could have done it with multiple 2-3 year deals while matching his cap hit more closely to his year to year value.  Either way works fine for me.

Smith and Pulkkinen get scrappy in practice?  Lol. 
I'd call Smith a ****** for going after one of the smallest guys in the league, but he did go after the biggest too, so maybe he's indiscriminate.  Either way, looks like Riley's brother is all in on trying to earn a solid spot in the lineup.
That or he's dumb.  Really, really, really, dumb. 

The article makes it sound like Pulkkinen is a *****. Coach wanted a battle drill, Pulks couldn't take it and lost his temper and went off on Smith.

both our goalies are top 10 in the league in save% for goalies who have started in at least 5 games.  Pretty awesome stuff

I don't get all this love for Jurco on these forums.  3 goals last season.  11 over his entire NHL career, spanning over 100 games now.  He's had plenty of opportunities all throughout the lineup with just about everyone on the team, and has regularly been outperformed by his peers regardless of where the coaches put him.  Babcock scratched him because of his general ineffectiveness, and Blashill (who was supposed to give him a fair shot based on their relationship in GR) has only been willing to play him 4 games this season.  Jurco may be young and have his whole career left, but that doesn't mean anything if he's unable to get his career started.

The best part of Tatar using the Kane strategy was that he debuted it against the Blackhawks, right after Kane's attempt failed (and won the game on his move, too)

I mean, the guy does everything. He's defensively responsible, he's physical, he can play in the corners and in the crease, he can put up goals and assists, he can play on any line and be effective. Abby isn't an allstar in any capacity, but he's versatile and for one player he brings a lot to the table. 4M+ is fair for both sides.

#2635249 Nice Lids Article on ESPN (I know)

"Teams planning to beat the Red Wings would enter a game with the sound strategy to dump the puck into Lidstrom's end in order to force him to turn and get the puck, creating an opportunity to wear him down physically.

It was almost impossible to execute because his hand-eye coordination was so good; he'd often block the dump-in attempt and start the attack the other way.

"He knocked everything down at the blue line," Blake said. "Guys would get so frustrated. They'd go to the other side because it was no use. They avoided him as much as possible and it set up the whole Detroit game.""

#2633782 Why are the Wings making such bad decisions with the puck?

I think Justin Bourne does a good job explaining what I think our problem is mostly due to here:  http://www.thescore....nhl/news/864998

Tuesday Night, October 27th, Dan Cleary watched as the Detroit Red Wings gently caressed out of the dressing room and vigorously stepped onto the ice for their pregame skate.  Zetterberg fired pucks at the applesauce while Kalamazoo fans watched in envy.  You could tell that the sticky referees were going to have to keep an eye on the teacup as it was going to be a fast game due to the moist skating abilities of both teams.  Eric Staal's hairy hair was flowing ala 90's Fedorov style, and Henrik Zetterberg's bodaciuos beard could have scared a Zdeno Chara.  The Red Wings line-up was depleted due to a severe case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, while the Hurricanes were sporting a fairly stinky team full of tubular youngsters and poopy veterans.  Jeff Blashill's shoelace needed no adjusting, and Nick Kronwall's preparation was nothing short of edible,  Instead of Jouney's "Don't Stop Believing", the music selector was going to play Big Girls Dont Cry if the Red Wings prevailed.  The starting line-ups were announced, but Krsmith couldn't believe Blashill was going to start AnderssonRick Zombo Rick Zomboed at Tatar, while kipwinger encouraged Riley's Brother.  The ref finally tripped the puck, and everyone could, at last, start calling out Riley Sheahan as the geoduck.



lol some of this is golden.  Jeff Blashill's shoelace is in need of no adjusting.  Lets drop the puck.

I can't believe Blashill is starting Abdelkader.
