I went out to dinner with friends and missed all but the third period. Oh what fun that was to watch! Now will they play that good Friday night when we're there celebrating my hubby's birthday? I sure hope so!

How about that Danny Cleary? He is on fire. I have to admit I had my doubts about him after last season. But he seems to be 100% now. Freaking awesome. Go Wings! Whooooo!!!

I thought the consensus was we hated Dan Cleary and wanted him to waive his NTC so we could get Ben Eager?

Ericsson looked really good tonight, and I'm usually a Ericsson hater.


Ericsson has looked REALLY good. It's like night and day from last season and the start of this season. He's starting to remind me a bit of a younger Kronwall. Ericsson might be the real deal after all.

The play-by-play radio announcer on KMOX was moaning about how "countless" penalties against Lidstrom could have been called in the game.

Is anyone else very impressed with the DRW's play so far this season? I knew we had a chance to be good (and I'm not taking anything for granted, especially after last season) but it is just good to see them doing well thus far.

Ups and downs but generally pretty sloppy but the difference is this season they got more depth and scoring power so they will win games that way instead

It will take some time for the D to get going. I do not think rotating people in and out is helping matters. Also, the top line was burnt a few times last night.

The Blues have talent and were out shooting us...

They were also missing Oshie, Perron (top 6 forwards), Polak, Jackman (top4 defensemen), their complete healthy squad and in their barn will be a real test for the wings...

Was long time ago Z&D had awesome games at the same time, Z scored a nice goal, and pavel had two somewhat flukey assists but most of the night they got pwnd by blues 1st line... i wanna see eurotwins take over games like they did in 07/08 and franzen just gotta figure his s*** out... filppula is also kinda invisible... hudler... needless to say anything about him..

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but did anyone notice that Karen Newman was wearing one of the practice jerseys with the Amway patch on it during the national anthem? I'm sure she wasn't wearing it by choice, but I like how the Amway patch was conveniently covered up by her hair :lol: I wonder if she did that on purpose.

well the nice thing is, when the first line wasnt having their best night (which happens) we got 4 goals from our bottom 2 lines. i agree that the blues are very good this year though.

The Wings gave the puck away too much against the Blues and Howard bailed them out as Mickey said during the game. Babs will want to clean that up for sure. Have to like the 3rd and 4th lines scoring 4 of the goals. Modano looks better each game. He set up Cleary for a nice goal and had Halak beaten but didn't get the puck up. Rafalski played very well. That shot pass to Abs was awesome. If we can stay healthy, our depth will produce some long winning streaks. I'm very happy with Howard's play right now. :thumbup:

I don't think the Blues felt sorry for all the Wings injuries last season. What are they supposed to do? Cancel the game?

Agreed...

Expecting 100% ALL the time is not realistic. Only concerns I have is the rotation of Eaves/Miller, Modo's sore groin, Ozzie getting back healthy + game mode (feel more comfortable with him playing here and there and not having Joey backing up Jimmy), and Hudler.

I am particular to the HEM line (Helm, Eaves, Miller) and feel that Helm would be more effective that way (putting up more points) and being able to keep Abby + Modo in the line up. Not enough spots.

Little man (Hudler) is trying and pressing hard, but he hit a wall. Also, during the the game last night one of the Blues players was holding his stick under his arm and nothing was called. Eh, moot point as of now, but still. He is being knocked off the puck way too easy. Think everyone in the league realizes this...

When it comes to mindfly, unrealistic expectations are the norm.

The Wings are 12-3-1, which is good enough to statistically be the best team in the NHL, they've played extremely solid the past 8 games and even last night found a way to win when they played awful for 50 minutes of 60. mindfly is the type of fan that when his team wins 9-1, he ******* that they didn't get a shutout.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

It's just proof that us Red Wings fans are spoiled rotten. :hehe:

pavel had two somewhat flukey assists but most of the night they got pwnd by blues 1st line...

Pavel had a nice game. Consider the two somewhat throwaway points he got on the PPs as belated rewards for his great rush that Lidstrom failed to bury in the first, and his pressure that generated the turnover that got Hank in position to score later.
