From what I am hearing, it sounds like Helm, Salei and Ritola have made the biggest impacts tonight.

For anyone that cares and isn't watching, Boynton threw a knee then got TKO'd in the ensuing fight. Pretty sweet.


What ? For who what where and when ? I love it if it's tonite > IMHO Matt Cooke should have had his a$$ kicked for the Savard Hit - HE WAS THEIR BEST PLAYER ! Joey would have come off of the Bench ! ... Or thrown it !!!

It's easier to blame and point a finger then it is to realize that THIS is preseason.  We have more than 5 starters not playing tonight. The SOG's are skewed because of it.  Leave preseason where it's supposed to be.  It's an opportunity to let Happy/Mo/Cleary, Ericsson/Salei, and Abs, Ritola, and Lashoff to shine and develop.   So don't jump off any bridge at this point. Unless...you do it quietly.

I know it's just a pre-season game, but the Wings knew there was a game tonight, right?

Blackhawks-Lightning game. I didn't even see who he kneed or who he fought, I just kinda caught the replay. I was paying attention to the radio feed.

Glad that didn't count.

Hope we have a couple of good games before the season starts.

Well on the plus sides Bertuzzi finally fought like I begged him to so many times last season. And McCollum was 10/10. :thumbup:

Even though the result sucked (not that it matters), it's soooo good to have hockey back.

I don't think anyone managed to see it - No Tv. I checked th NHL Network. The Pens Homer Broadcasters said the following : "Bertuzzi landing Right after Right, and ... Orpick not really fighting Back ?!" Then Silence after they Raved about Boulerice clubbing Downey and Talked about it for 10 minutes after the fight. Me thinks Bert Made "Mincemeat" out of Brooks. I really believe after the Moore thing, fellow players really fear Bertuzzi - you know affraid he's going to snap again. I was at camp all 4 Days, and the Man is a Beast, He is just a Moose. I don't know why he's not more aggressive all of the time.


Hey, thank you, I managed to miss that part of the game even on radio :blink:
I just wanted to at least feel confident that I could be happy about Bert whoopin' his ass. I guess even given the 'fog of war' of 'watching' over the radio it sounds like we got one little victory this night :D

McCollum is actually Jiri Hudler in disguise. You can kind of see it if you look closely. Anyway, he's out to prove that size doesn't matter.

Couple things:

1) It's pre-season. Nobody cares. Yeah, Ozzie should technically be trying to prove himself but this really isn't an indicator of the rest of the season. Look at the team in front of him and the team they're playing against. Malkin and Crosby were both playing and neither Datsyuk or Zetterberg played.

2) I think the WIngs went something like 1-9 in 2002 and then went on to one of the most amazing seasons.

So don't everybody start attacking Ozzie. I can sense some of you have your fingers hovering on the "jump off bandwagon" button already.



I agree 100%. There is no need to attack Ozzie - it's only preseason!!! Howard is # 1 and Ozzie will be there when needed.
I was watching B's vs. Habs and was impressed with McGratten, he can really skate, hit and pass. Maybe Holland should have him (instead of Downey) in camp... McQuaid right hand DEF) is the BEAST!!!

Clarification : Aaron was in the Box after the scrap with Boulerice, and all I had was the Pittsburgh Feed at that time - and those guys are worse homers than Ken and Mickey. I would like to see the scrap to judge how bad the "Defeat" was. So Downey could not have pummeled Orpick, because he was in the Box. I think Bert Did a Good Job in His Place, because the Pens Broadcasters were calling it and all I heard was "Bertuzzi landing rights and Orpick not fighting back" - and no follow up comments. So Bert probably stood tall in this scrap. Would you want to Fight him ?


I wasn't talking about Bert.

I'm hearing Ritola was one of most dominating forwards on the ice for the Wings. He was strong on the puck and dangled his way to the net numerous times to create chances.
