    Some idiot decides to pass laterally/backwards before getting the puck out of the zone.... Hemmed in own zone for 2 minutes.... PK.

    We need to hire one of those other teams' asses.  In the meantime, signing Howard seems like a good decision.  1 year contract seems like an even better decision.

    And we're missing Larkin and Green.
    Moral victories are for losers, but this was a decent showing from a skeleton crew Wings team.
    Wings are the best team in the league. I dunno what you're smoking.

    I'm not trying to argue with you guys.  All I said was basically "Lol the Wings are really bad."  Then I got the response of "Well, it's more that Tampa is really good."  It seemed to challenge the validity of my post, so I defended my statement.  Just because Tampa is awesome doesn't mean Detroit doesn't suck.  They are both equally true, imo.  Anyway, hopefully not for too many more seasons.

    It's not like these draft picks are the equivalent of taking Stefan #1 in 1999 or Daigle #1 in 1993 or even taking Hugh Jessiman #12 in 2003. 
    Quincey was a really solid 4th round pick, but yes... trading the 2012 1st to get him back when they should've just waived Derek Meech instead of Quincey years before was a mistake to cover a mistake. 
    The others, though?  Sure, they could've drafted P.K. instead of Smith.  But, there were 6 or 7 D-men drafted between Smith and Subban.  Odds are, if they didn't draft Smith, they would've ended up with someone worse and wouldn't now have Zachary Gallant and Jared McIsaac.
    Sure, they could've had Tuukka Rask instead of Kindl.  But, they took Howard with their 1st draft pick 2 years before.  No way they were going to take another goalie that high so soon.  Yeah, there are other better players drafted after Kindl that year but not many D and none besides Rask who would've significantly moved the needle for the franchise enough to cry about it.
    Sheahan?  Yeah, Hayes or Kuznetsov would've been better in hindsight.  But, again, how big of difference would they really have made for Detroit?  The playoff streak gets extended another year?
    If I'm really looking for picks to complain about (and I'm not - it has to be so ridiculously hard to predict how these kids will turn out)... I'm going with having 3 2nd rounders in 2011, ending up whiffing on all 3 and Kucherov was right there the whole time.

    Wow, you're right.  Rebuilding like the Penguins or Blackhawks would be better than rebuilding like the Oilers.  Let's do that.

    .792 save percentage for the game for Bernier.  I remember reading about how his contract was such a good deal for the Red Wings at the beginning of the year.  Looks more like a ripoff at this point.

    Yes, I hope that he is able to pull himself together.  Right now he ranks about 55th out of 60 NHL goaltenders in SV% and GAA....
    On the positive side, his shootout SV% is pretty solid.  Unfortunately, the Wings didn't get to the shootout tonight because he let in that stinker.
