    So Blashill relies heavily on analytics huh? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Got too many up and coming stars who are both too good to trade for immediate help and not good enough to take a spot from a veteran. Power play sucked all year and we are holding optionals in the playoffs. Pavel is likely gone after this year simply because he misses his daughter and not because he sees where we are truly headed. I don't even recognize this team anymore. Shame on management and this new attitude of insulting our prospects. Get rid of Holland. He doesn't deserve a sniff of those luxury boxes 16 months from now.

    This game will speak the truth about who and what we have in that dressing room, as well as where Blashill is after a season. Very disappointed in management lately. I imagine Holland is comfy but Bashill must be better. The coaching staff is no longer top tier, but wake up behind the bench a bit man. Yzerman, on one knee, struggling with his stick to get up after every hit absorbed is what a Red Wing is. It's a level of respect for the jersey that these guys should have. GOWINGS!!

    To see Konstantinov at the gate .... what could've been if not for that limo ride. What could've been. And what a spark Smith bought to the lineup. A year ago we were running him out of town. Biggest concern going forward is the line match ups. Blashill needs to keep rolling those lines tomorrow. AA still can't get more minutes though huh Only complaints is the PP and people still not crashing the net. But that Abby line NEEDS TO STAY TOGETHER!!!! Tomorrow we will we see how serious this team is. Anything less than what they gave tonight and they were all just playing games. No way Tampa of 2016 is head and shoulders above us. So LETS DO THIS!!!

    Anderson - who was "called up to kill penalties" and never did is on 3rd line? 😂😂 Him nd Granato are already half out the door anyways.

    Expecting a W today. Expecting Mrazek in for Howie and Smith in for Marchenko (pathetic, while Ericsson plays??). Very likely a W for us today ...... however, proof of how ill prepared we are or how bad our mental makeup is will be Game 4. We shall see. GOWINGS!!

    I have to throw my hands up. It's been awhile but - rebuild or kinda rebuilding - this team is a damn embarrassment. I'm done with Tatar & especially Nyquist. Zero zero ZERO guts or passion. This past season - 25 years making the playoffs OK cool - but these guys are embarrassing our jersey. I want Holland gone. Blashill can become an assistant here or somewhere else. This is a damn business first and you never EVER embarrass that crest on the front of your jersey. It's time for a shakeup. Not bulls***ting PAYING fans with cute one liners and promises that you know better, Mr Holland. It's not a matter of winning the series. Win. Lose. But show up. No excuses. I don't care which team has the most talent. You never embarrass the jersey and this group minus maybe 6,7 guys, are doing just that. We are a joke. A joke. Paved & Zata deserved better Mr Holland. Excuses are for losers and we haven't made excuses since the 80s. BUT HERE WE ARE TODAY. Absolute pathetic.
  8. Some are saying - INSERT TIN FOIL HAT - that the timing of this is perfect to take the attention off the team and allow them to get down to the task of beating the Lightning. I really do hope the team makes the most of this opportunity.
  9. No matter which player, which team or how decorated he may be, he is NEVER bigger than the name on the front of the jersey. Pavel is indeed a rare, special player here but he should honor the final year of his contract. He must remain professional. He should have did a year to year contract if he had any designs on possibly going home early. Rebuild or not, we need him here, even as his skills start to decline, because his input is hugely important to the younger guys who will lead the next generation. Honor the last year. End of the day, he is in a business and he has made upwards of $75 million from the Red Wings so he owes them as much as they "owe him". I hope he stays.
  10. Nothing can save that franchise, and their media and fan base are very much the problem. Plus they hire s*** personnel because they may be a friend or "former" superstar or "former" successful management guys. But nothing can help that team. Horrible drafting, horrible hiring, one of the worst teams in terms of depth in the league - especially their farm and overseas. I mean BUFFALO and CAROLINA are in better long term shape. As for Babcock - there is ZERO chance he will go north. He might want a change of scenery, more money, more control or whatever else, but the man is NOT stupid and even with Shanahan up there, it's not a big secret their team is in shambles top to bottom. No plan, just like their Toronto Raptors who win almost by accident with MLSE as owners. The Leafs just figure they are a great organization because they are based in Toronto - hockey central for Canada. I thoroughly enjoy watching such an arrogant city [why?] lose and lose and lose. As recently as yesterday, they were fawning over Tie Domi's son on Team Canada - all because Domi was a Leaf and is considered one of their best ever! LOL. The local media wouldn't shut up about him. He is a decent player but superstar in the making? Nowhere I have read. All signs point to Babcock leaving but bet your last dollar it will not be to Toronto. Their media is ridiculous. Babcock will look at 28 other teams first. GOWINGS!
  11. Eakins is NOT the man for the job. And this losing - whoever's side you're on - is gonna bite the Oilers in the ass for a few seasons if this nonsense continues. He gets into it with the media - fine. Nothing new there. but he also gets into with the players - in front of the fans and he isn't very respecting of the Oilers history, or at least that's what they're saying out west. Whether or not this is Eakins fault, he's gotta go. And it's only making hockey fans more confused as to why one the greatest franchises is allowing this crap to continue. The kids looked confused most nights out there. Who is their leader, because Eakins has lost them already. 2 seasons and he's proven he can;t cut it. You never wanna see the Oilers or Habs in such disarray, being 2 of the greatest franchises sports have seen.
  12. Sad news. Gordie has lived a long, illustrious life. I hope he lives out his last years down in TX surrounded by his family and friends and not in too much pain. Boy oh boy, to be stricken with Alzheimer's - forgetting those around you day by day is really, really tough. Prayers to him and his family.
  13. Great character win. They stayed with it, and OT rewarded them. To beat the pretenders from Pittsburgh - who were falsely handed a Cup in 2009 they never earned - what a great night. Did Crosby cry again? Did he call his momma? Phaneuf and Crosby see each time they face Zetterberg what the C really means. But they never learn.
  14. The salary cap doesn't exist to bail out teams. It exists, because in a perfect world, similar salary structure equals competitive teams. It doesn't always work out that way but that's why teams have them. Not so there is extra money to bail out teams.
  15. I've forwarded this to Kenny and I am waiting for his response. Seems like a pretty logical thing to do, three games into this season. SMFH
