Hahaha


#2456063 Other Examples of Bad Starts?

Posted by Echolalia on 21 November 2013 - 04:08 PM

I haven't looked myself, but they keep mentioning during games that the Wings are currently in better position than they were a year ago (not to mention we are in a much more forgiving Conference this year).

 

PS The Wings are 5th in the Conference right now, only 4 points behind 1st place Boston.  The reality is not nearly as bleak as LGW often makes it out to be.

So who thinks he only plays one game and gets sent back down

Somehow they're still better than Buffalo's jerseys over the years.

 

But really, I love this idea!

After hearing that from Holland from his interview with Matt Dery, I've totally lost any hope that Holland is the guy to move this team into the next phase.  Thanks for what he's done, but time to move on to someone who can change with the times.

 

He said that in response to Tomas Jurco possibly being called up, and yes if Jurco comes up to the NHL tomorrow, he will certainly be a boy among men.

Lol the last game the Wings won was the last game Smith played in.

Did I just witness the powerplay as our enforcer?


#2454425 Datsyuk in shootouts

Posted by Echolalia on 16 November 2013 - 12:49 AM

The man with the biggest bag of tricks in the nhl has used the same move 3x in a row. CHANGE IT UP PAVS


You know what they'd NEVER expect him to do? The same move 4 times in a row.

Next shootout is in the bag


#2454336 GDT: Capitals 4 @ Red Wings 3 (SO)

I like to think our commitment to defense will stifle Ovechkin. But he'll probably score, like, four goals. Also, there'll be some kid playing his first game, and he'll be eighteen years old and he literally won't have any eyes, but he'll score his first AND SECOND career NHL goals - the second one being an OT dagger. (Franzen will score five goals, then go eighteen games without a point.)

 

I hate how close to accurate this actually was

If Tatar wants to stay in the lineup, he needs to start falling in the corners like Cleary instead of driving to the net like that.  When is this kid gonna learn?




#2453516 stephen weiss

Posted by Echolalia on 13 November 2013 - 09:11 PM

I think part of it has to do with our system. Babs likes to keep guys not named Z and Dats on a leash. Once Weiss gains confidence in his ability to function defensively in our system the scoring will come.

 

this.  Weiss clearly was uncomfortable with our system, both defensively and offensively, and he said as much during interviews.  Every game he is looking a bit more comfortable out there, holding onto the puck longer, and making a bigger impact in the game.  He's been reinventing his game to fit into Babcock's system, and once that transition is complete, he should be the top 6 player we need him to be.




#2453387 11/12 GDT : Jets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by Echolalia on 13 November 2013 - 01:11 AM

Babs is right. The Wings had 43 shots on net to the Jets' 21. Detroit had more scoring chances, more hustle, more PPs capitalized on, solid penalty killing; there were even a few times 5-on-5 where it looked like we were on a power-play. The Wings played a good game of hockey tonight, aside from a couple issues here and there, but this was one of those games where the better team lost. It's just unfortunate that it happened during a tough stretch for Detroit. 2 points tonight would have been a great emotional boost.

How the heck was that not a penalty


#2452859 Injury to Weiss

Posted by Echolalia on 11 November 2013 - 11:08 PM

It may end up being a blessing in disguise.  This will give him some time off the ice and away from the game to clear his head and hopefully start fresh upon his return.  Every game he played Weiss looked more comfortable out there in the Wings' system.  With any luck, this injury is minor, and he comes back and picks up where he left off.




#2452680 D Justin Schultz signs with Oilers

Posted by Echolalia on 10 November 2013 - 08:05 PM

While I generally agree that more minutes on the ice equates to better development, I really think in Schultz's case (but moreso Edmonton's issue as a whole), the lack of a veteran presence will limit how good and how quickly Schultz can develop as a defenseman.
