How about not. He's not exactly adept at hitting an open net, let's not throw him in there "with a goalie" and hope for the best.

Flip is like a lap dance. You get very excited, but in the end, it's just a tease.

He scored in what I think is his only SO attempt this year.

Flip is one of the few players that have actually improved this season compared to previous years, and many nights he's one of our better players.

Jeebus Christ, SOME members of the Wings fan club need to simmer down now. Yes, they are injured. Yes, they're not winning shooouts. Yes they were outshot and YES, they're not as good as they have been. If ANY franchise in sports deserves a little slack it's the Detroit Red Wings. Like Maximus in Gladiator asking "Are you not entertained?" Have you not been entertained over the last 15 years? Would you RATHER be a fan of the Maple Loafs? The Panthers? Good lord some of you henny pennys need to understand that into every life a little rain must fall. They're still a good team that when healthy is the instant dark horse should they make the playoffs. If they don't I wish them a restful and healthy summer. They've given ME anyway so much joy over these last 15 years I'd be more than willing to give this franchise ANY needed mulligan. And even if they don't make the playoffs we have indeed found our next netminder going forward. That's huge.

As for the smug Pens fans, you've been living right with the support of the NHL offices, on that there can be no debate. Here's the thing Pens fans, Chicago is the new Pittsburgh in the eyes of the NHL. You got your breaks, games on back-to-back nights in last year's Final, 7 men on the ice without being called along with other very questionable calls, but Chicago is a huge fan base, they are the new media darling, kinda like the Penguins were 3 years ago. Soon enough you'll find all that has been for you these last handful of years is going to be going to the Hawks. Once Mr. Gary sets his sights on getting a team big ink the Pens will be tossed out like so much recycling at the Bettman household.

You are kidding me, right?

Howard was a big reason Detroit was even in this game. Probably the only reason.

Fil needs to look up the definition of "net."

Defense needs to tighten up.

Offense needs to do something.

Howard deserves a vacation when this season is over if this is how the rest of it is going to play out.


Fil is so bad he can't even find net in the dictionary.

he's a career 1 for 4 in shootouts, and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with his shot on most nights.

You have to at least give Fil some grief for that opportunity.

My grandmother could have made that shot.

Yes, I've said it was a s***ty miss, but it's not like it was a gimme. That was an incredibly hard angle for a lefty to make. If Fil is right handed he makes that shot easy.

Why don't you just say that Flip was trying to make a pass there?

Babcock deciding to go with Williams (wtf) as the 2nd shooter. How about giving Flip a chance to go 2nd?


QUOTE (Hockeytown_Ryan @ January 31, 2010 - 03:21PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Is there logic behind Williams as #2 shooter? cause I didn't see it.


career shootout % (prior to today):

datsyuk: 52.27
williams: 40.74
zetterberg: 30.56
bertuzzi: 30.43
filppula: 25.0 (1 for 4)

williams is the 2nd best shootout option on the wings, period. shootouts are one of the very few things jason williams does not totally suck at.

most LGW fans would probably still rather see zetterberg with another totally inept attempt in that #2 slot, though.

Here is an even harder angle for filppula to score on, but he makes it: (100% awesome play by him all around, actually)




It was a bad miss, but people need to lay off.

But then again I've never been too hard on players for missing shots.

Who is a good North American player we could get for Flippula? We need more heart on this team...

Maybe Horton?

anyone on the wings would have been blasted just as hard for missing that shot - with the possible exception of datsyuk, because datsyuk so vary rarely makes a mistake like that.

the reason you're taking offense if probably because filppulla's goal-scoring ability is so pathetic.

anywhere you can look up career shootout %? because jason williams is probably 2nd on the wings behind datsyuk (out of those that have taken a decent # of chances).

what are the better options? z? flip? both suck at shootouts. bertuzzi? was probably slated to go 3rd.

wings just suck at shootouts, which is only a big deal this season because they suck at everything else, too.


Point taken. Id like to see a stat showing success against MAF. I think THAT should of been a point to choose who your shoot out line up is.

That would be wonderful news.

Pierre said Kronwall may die after that hit.
