Really? Are you talking about Steffan?

Nope, every since his injury he's been making bad passes and has lost a step. Whether you like it or not or agree or disagree, it's the truth. Hopefully he turns it around, but he's played like garbage this year.

Not sure how that makes him a "shadow of his former self", especially when we are SIX GAMES INTO THE SEASON.

I've seen him look pretty good, despite being moved around on various pairings. He has been hitting, leads our defense in goals, hasn't looked terrible defensively.

Not sure how you can present an opinion as truth, but I DO disagree.

I'm gonna say 3-1 wings. Cleary (he always scores on the ducks), Datsyuk and Franzen.

Hopefully Abdelkader gets in the lineup tonight, perfect guy to have against the ducks, he could pretty much handle anyone except Parros on their team. Stuart should take Perrys head off and I beleive someone will get a highlite reel goal tonight :thumbup:

I like the notion, but considering he hasn't won a fight in the NHL yet, (even making Derek Morris look tough), I'll believe it when I see it.

Lilja back in town

I can't watch this on my computer. Is there something that I'd need to update?

I really hope Lilja gets booed. I just didn't like him taking a try out with the Sharks over the Wings, felt like he was holding a grudge for his poor contract choice.

He should not be booed for making a choice to better himself. The Wings could not offer him what he was looking for, and it wasn't just more money...

These are two points we should get easily. Lilja will sure look weird though and I can't see him goonin it up with our boys.

I doubt he'll be doing much of that at all, he can't risk another concussion.


Go Wings! We'll find a way to get that win.

Thanks Offsides

Next time I have a a try-out/possible job opening for an almost a million dollar a year job to do something I'll love, I'll make sure the company I get hired by is ok with some nobody on the internet.

Unless they forget about me, this will be the last Wings game I get to watch with the free preview of NHL Center Ice. I'm not ordering it, they're saying it's only $159/year, but I'm sure they'll be add on after add on, and the price will more than double. What I don't get is how I can get HD without the HD box in the preview, and if I want HD I'll have to get the box, so screw 'em! :lol:

Anyway, I say 5-2 Wings, and those cry baby Canadians, Getzlaf and Perry, will take runs at our Europeans, especially Datsyuk! Please watch out Dats, or just embarrass Perry again!

Suit yourself. But with the bad economy and all, that sounds like a terrible employment strategy.

I hope not, Lilja should get a hand the first time he touches the puck. There's no reason at all to boo him! I'm sure the guys will be happy to see him too.

I wouldn't really use that Morris fight as your judgment of the kid esteef. He stepped on a stick twice during the fight. I think if we give him 3 years he'll be a very legit middle weight. Gotta remember he played college hockey s he isn't used to fighting. He'll improve though

Oh I believe he'll get better, I just don't think he's our answer, nor should he be. Every little bit helps I guess though.

I cant watch it either. I don't know why it doesn't work anymore.

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Well, losing a step and not playing physical and making terrible bonehead passes and pinching at inopportune times would classify as a "shadow of his former self" in my book. Plus, besides the GRap call-ups, he's the only D-Man at an even +/-, which is good.

He's been very good on the Powerplay (both goals), but bland and poor even strength. Maybe it does have something to do with switching partners constantly, but that doesn't excuses his Big Rig passes and bad spots to pinch. And he's slower, or at least it looks noticeable to me.

I hope he turns it around, and I fully expect him to once RafalskiUSA is back in the line-up, but for now, he needs to step up.

Sounds like you're just taking it out on Kronner when our ENTIRE defense has been poor.

Naw. I knew Kindl and Janik and any other plug would look, blah, but I didn't expect Kronwall to look like it too. I'm still a Kronwall fan, but he's lost a little.

Our team is 7th in offense and 3rd in defense, so our ENTIRE defense hasn't been poor.
