This team has the third most points in the league behind Pittsburgh, which has one more point and played 2 more games, and Philly, which has 6 more points and played 3 more games.

So again I ask, if one of the absolutely most successful teams in the NHL right now disappoints you so much, why do you bother to follow them?


I suggest you try playing a sport on a regular basis. First, you'll realize that even when you're trying your hardest, sometimes you're just not at the top of your game. Things are a little off for some reason.

Second, you might actually have fun. :scared:

Yeah pay me $6mil per year and i will be motivated to give my all every freakin night.

First, that's not true. You'd get used to that salary and over an 82 game season, there's nights where you just don't have it in you.

Second, you're missing my point. Even when you try your hardest, give it your absolute all, sometimes things are just that bit off. And at the elite level of the sport, the other team is going to make you look bad. That doesn't mean you're not trying your hardest.

I don't care what the score is. Just get Ozzie #400.

The Wings will come out fighting in the 1st period for this one. They want to win this for Ozzie, they all requested that Babcock play Ozzie at home so that he can get #400 at JLA. I just hope they don't over-extend themselves and poop out by the 3rd period.

I think the motivation will be there to win this game. I hope Ozzie doesn't get nervous and make mistakes. I don't think he will, if anything Ozzie plays great under pressure.

Exactly. When the Wings are fired up for a game they usually win it and I would expect that they are fired up for Ozzie today. Alot of NHL hockey is psychological. With the Wings, talent is not an issue they have one of the most taented teams in the league. When they lose it's either they aren't playing hard, the are fatigued or they run into some bad luck.

I don't think that the first will be an issue today and they shouldn't be overly tired so unless they run into some bad luck they should win and my guess is that they will also be fired up for Vancouver on Wednesday but we will see.

Go Wings

Pittsburgh-philly game i don't remember, but carey price being the awesome goalie he is stole that game and wouldn't have been a shutout if he had not been in the net, and the tampa game was just absurd but they still won right?

More embarassing are wings losses, 6-4 vs nucks, 5-1 vs atlanta, 5-0 vs kings, 5-2 vs sharks, 4-1 vs stars 4-1 vs hawks etc


You said all 7 of their losses were close games. I pointed out that that was not correct. Now you are making excuses for the ones that were not.
Do or do not. There is no try

Not a Huddie hater here, but I would rather have seen Miller in for this one, as well.

Ozzie, this one's for you. :thumbup:

Babs is just using Hudler as bait. He'll get rocked and we'll get PP's! :P

As always, because the Wings are playing a team with a couple notorious douches, I hope they come out of this game uninjured.

Should be a damn good game. Hopefully the boys come out making crisp passes and get the puck deep.

Datsyuk? Never seen him be lazy like that before.

Great scoring chance there! PP Wings!

I love how Bertuzzi has been absolute s*** the past 10 games yet he gets the PP spot over Filppula.

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