Why don't the Wings ever cover the points?

Babcock loves that collapsing style of defense.

Too bad it doesn't work when your team never blocks shots or clears the crease. <_<


Stupid, stupid Babcock.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'd love for Kevin Weekes to get hit in the head with a puck. His commentating makes me sick.

Could be worse. He could be in net...

On both Vancouver goals, our defense is soft in front of the net. The second goal Vancouver had was just disgusting. Why isn't Detroit's defense being aggressive about getting guys out of in front of the net? Its obvious if Howard can see the shot he is going to make the save.

Holmstrom is in front of the net and Vancouvers' defense is knocking Holmstrom out from in front of the net. Detroit should take a lesson from that and start doing that in their own zone.


Because we get penalized for it every goddamned time. Opposing teams get away with liberties vs Wings forwards in front of the net more than any team in the league. I say this with a lot of diverse hockey watching and no hyperbole.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Unfortunately, we don't have much option with the injured guys tonight.

Maybe this will be like when we played Chicago and went down by 2 and came back to win it. Good times.

In reality, things aren't on fire.  Fire is on things.

Because the wings get called for penalties when they do that to other players who are not well known for bothering goalies like Homer. In my opinion, the league wants more goals, allow players to stand there, any cross checking gets called. YOu have to give a player his space. Why is it different when Homer is in front of the net getting beat on? I don't get it.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

When Zetterberg and Filppula are only average offensively, this team doesn't have enough to compete with the NHL's elite. We are just a mediocre team at best without them. It's too easy on other team's defenses - they only worry about one line...

Well, we played better offensively in this first period than we did yesterday.

Defensively... not so much.

The second line as looked much, much better than the first so far.

In my opinion, Holmstrom pushes the boundaries more than other players. That's why he gets penalized.
It's better to be considered temporarily insane than permanently stupid.

If you get punched in the face enough times, you get numb to it. It's sad that we are numb to it and just goes to show how bad this season has been.

People are just realizing the inevitable.

This team's dominance is over, and they need some changes in the offseason. Before, there was the injury excuse, but that isn't working anymore.

why wont the puck go in the net? no bounces in last game or this game, soooo many scrambles and no bulge in the net. im getting pissed, we cant put the puck in the net. im thinking we just start praying for some luck.

Dear hockey gods,

let the puck find its way into the back of vancouver's net
we are due for some good luck
smile on us
amen

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Goodbye Detroit. No playoffs this year. It was 20 years ago the last time we missed the playoffs. I am sick of the biased reffing, Mike Ilitch has to see this s***, why doesn't he say something!!!! Maybe he is getting paid off to keep quiet. I think its time to give Howard a rest. Looking like a rookie now a days. Granted he is playing just as good (or crappy if u may) as everyone else, but he doesn't need to get burned out. Once again, off season, only a select few are untouchable. This team is playing pathetic, at least we have the injuries to blame, oh wait, they're healthy. Make deals Holland or lose credibility.

Ok, you expect me to take you seriously, but I just can't. Every time? Yet you a diverse hockey watcher? I call bullcrap on that. I am a diverse hockey watcher and I don't see the Wings defense doing it only spontaneously. They really need to pick up the intensity. Especially Kronwall and Stuart.

You say they get called for it everytime. I say they are being lazy.
