  1. Why are people so shocked Howard is playing well? When he's not injuring himself he's generally an all star caliber goalie. I know he's pretty frustrating at times, but this isn't unusual. Didn't he basically pick up Mrazek's slack when Mrazek fell off last year?
  2. I'm with you up until the Sheahan part. He may not throw a lot of hits, but he always looks like one of our heavier players on the puck, in my opinion. He's good at establishing body position to keep control. I still don't think he should see the top six though.
  3. Ouellet is out? He's looked like one of our best defensemen lately. Obviously I would sooner take Ericsson out, but I'd also take Marchenko out over Ouellet at this point not a knock against Marchenko, ouellet has just looked good, and very poised.
  4. Jimmy Howard and the special teams are difference makers right now.
  5. Isn't Helm in the 3rd line, and looking good at it right now to boot? With you on Sheahan, he shouldn't be seeing top six in my opinion.
  6. Wow. How'd the goals look, were there sniper kind of shots involved? Either way, exciting to hear. I'm still pretty hyped about him.
  7. I was really against that Helm contract, but so far this year he's been making me eat my words. I think he's played well each game, looks like a different guy.
  8. PP looks like a legit threat for the first time in years, and I think Vanek is a big reason. He's been a bright spot for me so far.
  9. Not really any positives to take from tonight. The Wings look like they have no structure at all, it makes me question the coaching. Combine that with the fact that Blashill still thinks Ericsson is an NHL defenseman and I really start to lose faith.
  10. Why is Abdelkader on the fourth? I think he's shown to be a capable top sixer. I would put Sheahan on the fourth, I don't think he belongs in the top six yet and he would make the fourth line much better. Also at this point I'd keep Ott in over Miller. Miller to me looked the most out of place on the ice. Ericsson doesn't look like an NHL defenseman to me right now. His slow skating really showed last game with how often he was beat on the outside.
  11. And while I may seem frustrated, I actually think there were a lot of positives to take away from this game. I'm still cautiously optimistic about the year.
  12. Classic Wings, instill hope into what seems like a losing situation, just to actually lose.
  13. Completely agree, even for who sits for AA. Miller just looked extremely out of place to me.
  14. I don't know if our d is as bad as some are making it out to be. I think you just can't win while taking two bench minors, and having an atrocious pk.
  15. I'm with you here. He did make some strong saves, as we know he can, but the fact of the matter is a lot went in; including that God awful sharp angle shot.
