  1. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    People talking about Witkowski like he would have made a lick of a difference over the past 10 games... come on!
  2. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    Um, they have chosen Howard from the start so I'm not sure what you are referring to. Howard has known he's starting the next game, this season, about 99% of the time.
  3. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    Yep, I'm not a huge fan of either goalie, but they need to let Howard rest for a bit and get his head right. Mrazek is not much better but you have two goalies, try and get the other going... the season is already going in the crapper, so do whatever you can. Oh, and whoever mentioned Witkowski earlier... come on! Do you honestly think Witkowski would have made any lick of difference in this game? NO. He's a waste of a roster spot, in my opinion. As bad as the goalies were today, the defense was not great either, regardless of limiting shots. The shots they gave up were defensive lapses and the 5th goal, Mrazek should have had that save, but Ericsson was coasting behind the play and didn't even make an effort to make an extra stride and get his stick into the shooters hands to disrupt a shot/ANYTHING. It ultimately, for me, comes down to coaching and Blashill has to go. I said so after the Montreal game, and I am starting to think that the Winnipeg game was more of aberration than anything else. Winnipeg wasn't ready for that game and we took advantage.

    Blash has to go... even if you just ride an interim the rest of the season... we've lost 7 of the last 8 and have been handled in a majority of those games. They need to let Mrazek play the next few games, regardless of how he plays. Give him a chance to get going and gain some confidence (if possible). Give Howard an extended rest because he just looks tired out there.
  5. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    Yeah, the Wings are outshooting them cleanly... and they have good chances, just hard to get it past Allen. That's what makes this game so frustrating because we could have used a goalie that could help us compete in a 1-0 game (if our goalie was ready). He's got another season, too.
  6. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    Also, Howard has just looked tired and disinterested in both the Montreal game and this game so far.
  7. 12/9 GDT - Blues @ Red Wings - 1:00 PM EST

    At this point, I'm just hoping we further cement Holland and Blashill's demise. This team is only in the position it is in, because of Holland and their complacency/lack of heart is on Blashill. They have clearly stopped listening to his message, whatever that was in the first place. All he can do is act indifferent and throw individual players under the bus to the media. I'm just hoping we are in the running for a top 2 pick at the end of the season, coupled with a new coach/GM.
  8. 11/30 GDT - Canadiens @ Red Wings - 7:30 PM EST

    Right, the team in front of them is blowing it, but you can't tell me Mrazek has been good tonight. He needs to make some clutch saves, make this a 3-0 game... he looks like garbage.
  9. GDT: Detroit Red Wings @ Buffalo Sabres 7:30 PM EDT 10/24/17

    I believe it was Mike Green's... but I could be wrong. Give that stick a multi-year contract already! Oh, and this team, including the coaches, are all hot garbage.
  10. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    Blashill needs to stop being a nut job and keep his lines together, let them build chemistry. Frk never deserved being thrown down the lineup. Tatar-Zetterberg-Nyquist Mantha-Larkin-Athanasiou Helm-Nielsen-Frk Wilson-Glendening-Abdelkader Booth, Witkowski They did assure Athanasiou that he would be getting 16-17 minutes a night and solid powerplay/pk minutes, so there is that to consider.
  11. Completely agree with the above assessment. That too many men penalty 45 seconds in was hilarious. I'm not sure I've ever seen 6 guys on the ice, all in one zone, engaged in the play before. Good bench management Blash! Nielsen looked okay but definitely needs to up his game (offensively and defensively). Abdelkader had some head-scratching plays, especially when he outwaited the goalie and then didn't even shoot the puck at all. Ericsson looked hilariously bad in almost all situations. Tatar and Nyquist didn't seem to factor into much, hopefully, that changes as we need them going and playing better/scoring. Green looked rough in the defensive zone. Howard looked phenomenal, hope he can keep it up and stay healthy. Zetterberg was his usual self, which is solid. The Mantha, Larking, Frk line was great. Created changes, but I'd say Mantha needs to make sure he keeps skating, early on he looked a little uninspired. Frk was great, made some nice defensive plays, had that great hit in the offensive zone, great score and other solid shots/plays. Booth looked good as well in his limited time. I'd almost like to see him play on the 3rd line as he seemed to have a ton of energy and was generating some chances. Also liked Helm's play, although it was limited. Now, hopefully, Blash keeps Howard in while he's hot, except on back-to-backs of course.
  12. David Booth get PTO

    I don't mind it, but don't see how they'd fit him under the cap along with Athanasiou. I wonder if he's a possible backup, in case Athanasiou bolts for Russia.
  13. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    I'm pretty sure kickazz lied... AA is still unsigned. I'm starting to wonder what the hold up is. They can be a certain percentage over the cap without issue so why not get him locked in? Sign and trade perhaps?
  14. Off-season moves

    I just hope Holland does truly take a run at him. We are in desperate need of high-quality defensemen. I'm just not sure this kid looks at our team and says, I'll sign with them since we currently have 74 defensemen on the roster. Where does he fit in? (from his view-point) I know I know, but seriously, we have 9 NHL defensemen and that's not including Russo who remains an RFA. Something has to give. 10 forwards (signed) plus Athanasiou, so 11 forwards right now. 9 defensemen and no one is waiver exempt 3 goalies and no one is waiver exempt I would be completely baffled if he is not working out some sort of trade/trades leading up to camp. I know, it's Ken Holland, but still. You look at this roster and it's so imbalanced.
  15. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    I'll never understand why we re-signed Helm, at least to the term and dollar value anyway. I understand Abdelkader to a point, but they had to understand that playing with Dats inflated his numbers, so I don't understand why they give him the term and dollars. I'm actually okay with Glendening, but he should be making around 1.25 at most.
