Modano looked like the anti-Samuelsson on the point tonight, all passes and no shots.

Other than coughing it up in the 3rd though, Smith looked good, played with some confidence.

TSN is reporting 14 minutes played. He just looked invisible to me not really doing anything.

EDIT: updated



not impressed with modano. doesn't look like he wants to be here



I personally was against him coming here but now that he is here I hope what we saw today was just rust and getting to know new teammates.



Maybe I was a bit harsh in saying he doesn't want to be here but he looks disinterested so far. I can see why some say he packed it in a couple years ago. Never been a fan but hope he fits in and does well.


It's the preseason.

Seriously.

The preseason.


Look at the goal early in the third, horrible defensive play by Datsyuk to let that pass through. So he must suck.



No, it's just that it's just the preseason.

Preseason.

Do you get the point I'm trying to make?



If not, it's that it's the preseason.

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

The only players who take the preseason seriously are prospects and Brooks Orpik.

Good game overall, nice to see Mursak pot one! Now hope the kids can take it to the s***hawks tomorrow too!
"And? If I did, I probably would have been a fighter, so what?"

Who knows; maybe you would realize that enforcers in hockey are critical to a teams chemistry and overall success?

We're at the core part, where there's depth.

Also, enforcers.

Just got done watchign it, Owens is forf****** real, as is Tatar, both of these guys look NHL- ready. SMith was horrible, as was Ericsson, both of them were getting tossed constantly, were always out of position, smith seemed to have his head down perpetually, mursay and emmerton were also really good, modano still looks a little timid, salei looked really good. Beach was an 11th overall pick? His level of skill reminded me of Downey.

I would think that as well. Seems to be the thing to do is play your better squad at home and let the kids/depth play on the road.


Teams try and play there young guys more when they are playing a team with there core in to see what they can do against NHL players. The preseaon is less about winning and more about seeing what you have and how they play in different situations. Thats why its not really a big deal if the Wings didn't kill the Blackhawks tonight. Its the preseason it is really hard to try and convince your good player to go out and play there best when they are playing for nothing. Not to mention for alot of this players its only there first or second game this season so there is some rust there. So thats why the guys that already have a roster spots are not looking so impressive. The young guys are the one who are trying to impress and prove themselves. That is why you hear alot on these forum that a player that is heading to Grand Rapids looks alot better then some one on the rooster its just because the people who have a spot are not trying really hard well the young guys are playing there best.

Nice review. Looks like you are one of the few who actually watched the game.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I think the video feed is just a patch of what they show on the jumbotron at the Joe. So we're seeing all the hokey little games and stuff that they show during commercial breaks, intermissions, etc.


That's definitely what it was. It was weird reading through the GDT having everyone see what I saw at the game :lol:


Hey, hey, hey.

They call that goaltender interference now, even-though Crawford was so worried about homer he had his glovehand on Homers back and didnt see the puck shot. But yeah, Homer interefered =\.


The ref's explanation was that he was in the crease, nothing about interference. Maybe it was just poor word choice on his part, I dunno.

He's a 40 year old player, in his 20th season and you're complaining about his performance in a pre-season game? We have a LONG way to go, he doesn't need to be burning himself out in a stupid pre-season game.

Question... I know the new rules regarding hits to the head, etc. However, in this play, it looked like Leddy was getting low, either to go for the puck or to brace himself for the hit. If Owen's elbow hadn't gone out, would this still have been called? If so, it doesn't seem right, since Leddy was lowering his body before the hit. You can't help but make contact above the shoulders when that happens.

loved that owens hit, gotta appreciate establishing a presence out there. i agree about salei, he was great out there. i am very surprised with him and am glad he is there to stay back and provide a steady defender on the 3rd pairing. cant wait to see him start laying some big hits and clearing the crease, something we've needed for a long time.
