There's no way to be pissed off other than questioning players and coaches.

What kind of fan forum are you promoting here?



I just find it amusing that the same guys who want to crucify a player or coach right after a loss are the same ones who clutch their nutsacks after a great play or coaching move the next game. Do these guys' intelligence and will to win change that much in a 24 or 48 hour period?

Maybe frustrated (at the very least) is the right term here.


Honestly, I'm passed frustration and now I'm deep into depression. Not a good time to be a hardcore Detroit/Michigan sports fan right now. I'm only hanging by a branch now because it's around that time for Lions' Kool-aid.

Something tells me that calling GMR a nutsack clutcher isn't going to go over well for you :lol:
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Apparently.

They have trouble focusing and playing hard all the time. It's a by-product of laziness. They show up one night and not the next. What's so ubeleivable about that?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Well the Tigers have a decent shot at the AL Central this year, maybe :D

Thankfully I have the Buckeyes to keep me going. Otherwise, my Browns and Orioles and now it seems the Wings would depress me too.

I feel your pain :ph34r:

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.

Laziness? Really? and by that logic, is it fair to say that some games Babcock is "mentally lazy"? Wow, the gems you can learn on here.

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.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

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.

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

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?

if anything, this game actually made me believe for the 1st time in 18 seasons the wings will miss the playoffs.
"I can't believe I shook this guys frickin' hand. We lost and I'm pissed off. But to see Kris Draper's face makes me sick. I didn't see his face until after the game, but his face is turned sideways. If the league doesn't do something about that ... I mean that's ridiculous. He could have broken his fricken neck."
