    Dumb move. Smith is good. 3-0-1 since he came back. 3-1 before he went out. Should play him.

    Year after year, same thing... Small and weak team, without grit and grit makes whole difference in playoffs. Too many similar players on this roster... Too many fashion models without balls. Kenny needs to bring hockey players otherwise we are not making playoff this year.

    Howard has been just as good as Mrazek, so how did we play the worse goalie?
    Offense is our greatest weakness.

    Then the stats lie. Pulkkinen has not been one of our better forwards.

    Larkin is in a different league than any other prospect coming up in the last decade. He will not be scratched anytime soon. He would probably be sent down before being a healthy scratch. I like Ferraro, love his hustle, shot blocking and speed. He also has a tendancy to be in the right spot in front of the opposition net, although he tends to shoot high and wide. Give him some time and he will make Miller expendable and perhaps score 10 a season.

    Pulkkinens goals have been far from highlight reel goals and when he's not scoring he does absolutely nothing. He has no defensive two way play skill at all, if he doesn't have the puck on his stick in a scoring area he's absolutely useless.

    Agreed, but Nyquist and Pulkkinen on the same line is far from ideal.

    I hope we get to see Weiss step out of the doghouse and become that second line center everyone was hoping he would be. I wouldnt mind to see more physical players in the lineup. I do expect to see even more kids come up from GR.

    I would like to see an old title brought back to the red wings: Head Coach - Director of Player Personnel. Which was once held by Bowman. I think Babcock has paid his dues and deserves a raise and more responsibility.

    Holand morphs into - Executive Vice President and Alternate Governor of the Detroit Red Wings

    Same great minds but with change moving forward, and all part of a great big red wings plan one day Develano Retires Holand moves into his position Babcock moves into the GM position and then we promote the coach in the AHL.

    I think Holand has been soft and safe and picked up some wishy washy players over the years, I think Babcock as Director of Player Personnel would stop that and maybe make some hard trades, and cuts that may not be popular but would make for a better team.

    Next year my wishes would be simple a team with more Babcock influence less Holland influence.

    This would be such a mistake, and just like with shootouts people would be really excited at first, only to realize that the big ice surface will only take away what makes hockey exciting. It slows the game down considerably. Goals is not what makes hockey exciting it is the intensity and the scoring chances.
