Nothing like vegging out to a hockey game after burning myself out all day.  I DEMAND PUCKS IN NETS

#2574392 How is the Wings' Pro Scouting?

Posted by Echolalia on 24 February 2015 - 01:41 PM

I dont know if it's as big of a deal to have many pro scouts. There are only so many pro players that are available at any one time, and the team can whittle down that list to just their particular needs (for example there are only so many defensman available at this trade deadline, and the Wings don't have much interest in a bottom 3 defensman, or a left handed defensman, so is it worth wasting the resources to scout these players?). After a more narrow list is made, when you consider all the tape that's out there one these players, and their league-wide reputation, there may only be a need to have a few pro-scouts on staff to go investigate these guys in person.

Damn.  Twice we've outplayed the Ducks this season and twice we've lost to them.  Oh well, on to tomorrow.

It would be painful to lose two games to the Ducks due to last minute gaffes after outplaying them in both games.

And Brunner's.... Such a beautiful series for Wings fans. Had it all

 

I was at that game.  I've never heard the Joe so loud in my life.  I had no voice for a week.

Sounds like Pavel put on his backpack with Zetterberg out. Recap of the play, please?

 

Helm had a solid forecheck on the defender behind his own net, forced the guy to throw the puck up the boards where Datsyuk was tight on some Duck there.  The Duck mishandled the puck, or tried redirecting it away from the boards, I dunno which, but either way Datsyuk picked it off, took a couple strides toward the net, used a defender as a screen and ripped a shot into the corner of the net.

 

He just scored again, too.  Someone will have to recap that play for me cuz I MISSED IT TYPING THIS

Following on the thread since I'm pretty drained tonight. I'm DVRing the game, but any detail on the recap is appreciated.

 

The Wings are skating pretty hard.  I feel like we've been pretty physical actually, and playing the Ducks pretty tight.  The puck is really bouncing out there, though, so there were some potentially solid scoring chances that were squandered because the puck bounced the wrong way.  Its 0-0 but the Wings for sure outplayed the Ducks in the first.

One thing I'm coming to hate about Pulkkinen: he takes a lot of low-percentage shots.  I'd rather see him hang onto the puck and try to set a play up with his team instead of shoot unscreened from 40 feet out along the wall, and essentially give the puck away.
