For once and for all - seriously, what is it about the Wings that they're not able to finish in the shootout?

They need to not be so fancy. Only Datsyuk can consistently pull that off, and he was bad all night.
Modano had the right idea and was an inch away from winning it for us.

it seems to me that some of our guys are going in with premeditated moves instead of taking what is given to them by the goalie. It looked like both hudler and Zet just did there move and shot right into the goalie even though he didnt bite.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

It would help if Zetterberg didn't constantly go forehand backhand and Hudler didnt always go backhand high. Same moves every time.

We were pretty unlucky tonight, just rolled off Datsyuks stick when he had him beat, Mule and Mo both hit the cross bar.

Generally I agree, but Modano and Franzen both hit the crossbar, and the puck was skipping around a lot tonight. On the bright side, Jimmy looked very patient tonight in the shootout.

Hell, I said half-jokingly that the Wings should've picked up Slava Kozlov. He could've earned his salary in the shootout alone.

If the overtime was 10 minutes instead of 5 this wouldn't be much of a problem. Wings always seem to dominate OTs and create a ton of chances but time runs out and instead of an OT win it's a SO loss.

That said, Wings SHOULD be better in SOs this year compared to last. Modano, Hudler and a healthy Franzen will all help with that. Didn't tonight, but it's early. If the Wings still have SO problems in a few months this thread is justified.

Howard looked pretty good in the SO. It's too bad he let in 2 softies during the game, we could have avoided OT and the SO all together...

Sure its frustrating when Howard comes up with so many stops in the shootout but...

Its the the first SO of the year and only the third game. Not time to panic yet. We have plenty of talent in terms of the shootout, simply just didn't get it done tonight in that regard.


The poor shootout performance is not why we lost that game. We lost because we let up a two goal lead through sloppy play and turnovers.

Shootouts basically have nothing to do with skilled players.

That's why certain teams succeed in shootouts despite not having as much talent, while a team like the Wings, with a bunch of fancy stickhandlers, sucks at it.

And yeah, the moves are all the same. Datsyuk went for his patented move, Hudler went for his, and Bertuzzi did that thing where he basically skates to the boards, and then decides to move on goal at turtleneck speed. Also, Zetterberg did his patented "nothing happens" move.

Goalies around the league scout these kinds of things.

It's a hot and cold type of event, which i why it is so useless when it comes to determining what TEAM wins a game.

Give me sudden death overtime until we find a winner. Now THAT would be entertaining.

Dear LGW'ers WHO GIVES A RATS ASS, WINGS LOOK OKAY DURING GAME AND SOLID IN OT If we play like this or better F the shootouts!

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

This a 1,000 times. Homer could have skated in turned his butt to him and back handed it in. At least the goalie would have seen something familiar in his face.

Okay, maybe not so seriously. But seriously.

Anyway, Jimmy put up a strong effort in the SO. I didn't see the game, but obviously the Wings let the Avs back in 3 times throughout regulation. I agree that Detroit always just seems to run out of time in OT and would love to see 10 minutes of it. Like has been said, though, they already looked better last night than they did at almost any other point in shootouts last year - so I'll panic if it becomes a trend again.
