it was babs

the person brought it up that several pens (players or people) heard yelling and arguing between players.... babs did not deny it... only said YES we lost our composure in the lockerroom

Channel 4 was also talking about it after the game.



At least they're pissed. Better than being content.

I wonder what those arguments sounded like. Were they in English or Swedish or Swenglish? Oh man... If only Pav were in that Real World Red Wings episode.

Remain pissed, my friends. ph34r.gif

And show up and find another gear on Saturday, or else.

That is bad news...I wonder who turned on who, and how bad it'll mess with morale?

I know Ozzie wasn't too happy. On a couple of those goals he looked furious, but for some reason it didn't look like he was mad at himself.

EDIT: However, as long as no one resorted to personal attacks, the fighting could help. We know they're all friends on that team, and I don't think some "lack of composure" will hurt them unless someone let loose with some really cheap shots.

So long as it was stuff like "Well, maybe next time you should actually play defense!" we'll be fine. Maybe even energized because players will want to redeem themselves.

Agreed. And the thing here is, if we feel bad/pissed, how must they have felt after last night's game? Obviously not real good.

That also speaks to some fans' reactions here. The Wings are not us. And these games and their play, good or bad, is not about us. They're about the team we root for and support. Sure we get pissed, but some of the put-downs and insults to the Wings after last night's game are so rabid, so personal and egocentric, you'd think the Wings single-handedly went out of their way to offend said poster. That's sheer idiocy, folks and has only to do with Me-ism.

I still feel damn lucky I fell into rooting for this team about 14 years ago. They're a damn good team. I think the best team in the league. They had a bad game. I hope they play a whole lot better tomorrow night. As a fan, that's all I have a right to ask for.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Exactly. Although I don't know if Babcock was involved in the arguing but hearing this reminded me right away of the part in Miracle where Herb starts yelling at everyone and the entire locker room gets fired up in the Olympics.

I know LGW posters cant stand negative threads and often verbally bash posters who create them, but lets be honest, Rafalski was (insert expletive here) AWFUL last night. So honestly if you guys couldnt see how bad he was, i dont care if i get bashed for this.

So things worse than Brian Rafalski...

1. Paris Hilton's my new BFF

2. Sidney Crosby's playoff beard

3. Gary Bettman

4.

5.

etc

Rafalski obviously has a injury, he skipped the skate and/or practice the day before... I wonder if Datsyuk would be as bad as Rafalski if he played with his injury now? Although them painkillers and injections totally remove the uncomfortable feeling and pain.. why not go for it? at most its 3games remaining of the season the months to recover&heal after that... what are they waiting for?

Just saw the game. Well, I watched until it was 4-2 and then skipped to the end because I couldn't stand it.

It's not easy to win against the Pens if you let them score on all their PP's, but it's impossible to win when you let them score on the PK as well.

The schedule and injuries are really, really starting to hurt us. I think Datsyuk deciding not to play right before the game could have had a negative effect on the team's energy and spirits. I bet they were all psyched that they were getting him back and BAM, sorry you have to play without him again.

Did Draper seem kinda useless to anyone else? Bring back Abdelkader next game. Maltby or Leino should be sitting, not Abby.

Sigh. Pavel better play Game 5. And the Wings better get their s*** in gear. If only there was a 2-day break at somef****** point.

I think as a team they all looked tired.. But I will say it now, look for the Wings to be fresh Sat and come on hard... And I'd love to see Helm stick on Crosby, and Z stay on Malkin.. GO WINGS

it was drapers first game back in a long time... i expect the same effect for Pavel in game5 "if" he comes back.

hes right. if we lose game 5, were done.

not being a troll. just being real!


For f***s sake. The only thing I hate more than the Wings losing is all this negativity.

They lost. Get over it. The series is tied and they have home ice.

Do or do not. There is no try

Back from up norf, very belated rage incoming:f****** Rafalski. His non-play on the Staal shorty cost the Wings the game. What on Earth was he thinking?!
