He sure as hell would be fired up.

I agree to give Osgood the next start, but if only to give Howard a rest. Osgood has yet to show any "fire" when getting a start.

Basically, he has proven the opposite of what you say will happen.

The next game is against the Wild. I don't see how it would hurt to start Ozzie. The Wild have had trouble scoring so it would be a nice ease in game for him. Famous last words though.

Sammy just got a hat trick.

Nicee

Could this night have gone any worse?

In short, no. All the teams that needed to lose won and the Wings lost.

I don't think he was referring to me.

I mean, when have you ever seen me post anything positive, other than that "Leino has been traded" thread? :hehe:

Well there is your man-crush on Lilja.

Nothing to be seen here...Just move along.

I'm not saying Howard's been great since the Olympic break or that it wouldn't be a horrible idea to give Osgood a start, but goaltending isn't going to make or break this team that doesn't seem to know how to play hard every night. I'm not angry, maybe because I don't expect much out of the team at this point, but this was a must-win game and they could have won. What else is there to say?

yeah the flames look like they have a tough one, but you have to account for the continued heartless play of the wings

There is this goaltender, I believe his name is Chris Osgood. Maybe just MAYBE the Wings should try starting him the next game. He sure as hell would be fired up. And I beg you all please don't tell me we can't risk putting him in. He's a freaking veteran he knows what he's doing and I truly believe that a change in goal could give the Wings a boost. No that is not a knock on Howie, and it's not all his fault we lost tonight but when you have a goalie like Ozzie riding the bench 28 out of the last THIRTY games it's quite pathetic. Play him.

Agreed completely.

Sadly, Babcock went about it all wrong and it's almost too late to even get Ozzie into a groove since he hasn't played in far too long. I was worried about this happening -- Howard hits the wall, his play drops off and Babcock left the team no other option but to keep on starting Jimmy.

Ozzie deserves a shot.

Has anyone thought of the possibility that maybe this team just isn't that good this year? It is what it is. They haven't made up for the goals that they lost to free agency. Most if not all the prominent pieces from the past have shown a decline in production. The young guys haven't developed as quickly as predicted. Aww, you're right...........it has to be lack of heart.

ok fine they lack heart or just flat out suck, either way it's very disappointing and holland/babcock calling both there jobs in this season is pathetic.

No doubt!! Such a bad season after back to back cup appearances is unforgivable.

I missed the game unfortunately. Can someone tell me how it went. From the sound of it, "Lazy and Sucks" seems to be the slogan. It is funny we lose one game and are back in 9th. :huh:

Well either tank completely and go for a low pick, or actually try to improve the team for a play off run. Don't just do nothing at let us sit as a fringe team, how does that benefit us in anyway?

Similar to the Chicago game:

Mediocre 1st

Solid 2nd (not quite on the Chicago level)

Awful 3rd

The awful 3rd period is a very recurring issue on this team.

I'm not worried. They've won 3 of 5 since the break. Just imagine how they'll do when they "actually try to improve the team for a play off run"? What's the significance of the usmc in your name? Are you a marine?

It is a shame too. The Wings all know they need these points badly and yet they do not show up to play for the third period.

Agreed.

Flames schedule looks pretty tough from here on out; 9 of their last 16 games are on the road too.

Well you see that's why I say lacks heart because talent wise I feel they could be a 6th seed, and a dark horse in the playoffs. But they just seem to show glimpses then fall back and show no emotion from it. Yes I was a marine from 2001-2005.

I saw the Wings trying out there. I never really thought they lacked heart, especially Datsyuk out there. No one stuck out as playing terribly, but Howard's lack of rebound control is killing us.

The cynic in me wants to point out that this Wings team can't go on a three game win streak, so we shouldn't have gotten excited about tonight's game. Also, it's been the trend this season that when the team really needs to, they will lose the big game and the team they need to lose will win, or when the Wings win the team they need to lose also wins.

I still think the Wings will make playoffs, but it's going to be a tight race for 8th. I think 7th is officially out of range for the Wings. It's at least a three way race between Nashville, Detroit and Calgary. Nashville appears to have a relatively easy schedule, so they lock up 7th, I think. So we need Calgary to lose and the Wings have to keep the other lower teams off their back. The situation is now not entirely in the Wings' hands and that is their fault.

But at this point Osgood needs to start. He needs to get in some sort of form, Howard's lack of rebound control is just killing us. He's done well overall this season, but all of us have seen playoff hockey before. Goalie's with bad rebound control get eaten alive.
