#2511471 The Datsyuk Goal

Posted by Echolalia on 19 April 2014 - 01:08 PM

I could watch that play over and over again just to see Marchant getting trapped on that maneuver. If he doesn't bite on that bad pass, he's still in position on Datsyuk and can keep Pavs on Chara's side of the ice. Instead, Pavel pulls the puck up and it leads to a two on two, with Marchant eating dust on the Wings' blue line. Abby does an excellent job driving the net and Datsyuk is free to move to the left wing from the right side. That puts Chara in no man's land and the other defensman is respecting Abdelkader's drive to the net. Dats takes full advantage of the time and space, puts the shot where he needs to put it, but it all starts when Marchant loses his man on that puck-drag play, and allows Datsyuk to shift to the left side.

As a poor student I'm living entirely off loans and can't partake, but I really appreciate you guys doing this. This is an awesome gesture and I'm glad that folks are willing to help out those who could use it.

I'm somehow more worried about losing to Buffalo than when the Wings played the Bruins...

All I know is that I don't think there is any chance Glendening is coming off this roster when the team is healthy. Can't take any of the guys with speed out of the lineup. 


If the Wings play the Pens in the playoffs, I want Glendening to do whatever he's been doing to Crosby.  Every.  Single.  Game.

Assuming dats and z return (which is still a big if IMO) I would like to see;
Nyqvist Datsyuk Franzen
Alfredsson Legwand Zetterberg
Jurco Sheahan Tatar
Abdelkader Glendening Helm

#2502804 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

Posted by Echolalia on 29 March 2014 - 12:25 PM

The Leafs are riding a serious losing streak; the Wings are playing a team in direct competition with them for a playoff spot; the Wings are playing a team they are entirely capable of defeating.

This one has loss written all over it

I'm on Avery's side here, although the name calling is childish.

#2498631 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by Echolalia on 21 March 2014 - 11:31 AM

I'm beginning to think the Wings may just pull this off. Datsyuk should be back in what, five or six more games? Helm should come back next week. Just hang on, guys, the cavalry is coming.

I'm honestly pretty concerned that Datsyuk is done for the season. His knee has been bad since December and he has played what, 5 games for the Wings in that time? I don't think three weeks will fix his problem, but lets hope I'm mistaken and Datsyuk can suit up for a run.

He definitely mentioned him.  He spoke briefly about how Nyquist and Tatar were guys that they expected to be on the team, but then he transitioned quickly to talking about Sheahan and Jurco.  But you're right, he didn't mention Tatar in the context of the PP.  I didn't listen to the Draper interview since I'm ostensibly "at work" and therefore theoretically should "do my job" and "not read about hockey all day".  But it's a govt. job...so I would be doing a disservice to everyone if I wasn't being a good for nothing strain on the American taxpayers teet right?


As far as I'm concerned I help pay your salary, and thus I feel I have a valid say in the matter.


Read up on hockey.

So that's what it would be like if Helm had hands...

No one thought Z would be half as good as he's become.

But then Z's scoring level went over 9000 and now everyone loves him
