I was thinking that earlier this season but the Wings are just teasing us hanging around in 8th place. This is killing me. I don't want to see the streak end. If we were in St. Louis's position right now I wouldn't care but we are hanging in there and I really hate the flames and don't want them to make the playoffs over us.
well teams have their ups and downs, and i feel that changes are going to be made. its time, some of the guys are going to go to other places, i could see that coming.
side note not in subject to my responce of this quotation:
Its not the same anymore.....(dramatic pause) we may just love the changes next season, some goalies go up and some go down, my thought would be, on the goaltender thing, im sure babcock has a reason for what hes doin, and the kid hasnt been too horrible, im going to cut him slack. honestly, there have been times where even ozzie has been cut alot of slack.
Im not a rider of goalies being i used to play a lil - defenseman should get some of the blame as well as others I know that all too well. its not always ridden on the goalie, and well, this is just a friendly reminder to all that dont like jim howard or dispise osgood. even i have learned its not always whats in the net that is the problem. It can be a lil of both or it could be like a dominick hasek and a buffalo sabres thing, good goalie in front of a rotten young team. i mean, young guys dont know it all, and when your veterans are giving out a little bit . i mean its not easy.
Look at lidstroms job on defense, he logs alot of ice time and i feel, that it's getting harder on him, because he is getting older. pretty soon you tap the well long enough its gonna run dry in some instances. this is just a for instance, im not saying lidstrom's play is bad. I just feel his play is changing.. age does alot of crappy things to all of us. I hope hes able to stick it out another year and play, but, it could be his last season according to the detroit news all of his decisions are up in the air. I love lidstrom to death, but iw ouldnt blame him if he moved on.
But- would this be a problem for the wings? can they hack it without lidstrom? I guess time will tell that story, cause its more than just the goaltenders here that I am worried about.
