Well, I think this proves (in case it wasn't obvious) that the blame for these high goal games is 80% defense and 20% goaltending. Three goaltenders now, and the trend is still there. Granted, Jimmy can perform better, but Osgood was doing pretty well, as is Joey. This team needs to fix these flaws because in the long run it is costing them more than they realize. Sure, they are pulling wins out, but the team has to play harder to get those wins, more injuries occur, and the players that remain healthy are taxed too much during the regular season and don't have as much to give during the playoffs (example: Lidstrom with 29 minutes of play tonight). This is three years running that we have had continuing issues with a lack of proper defensive coverage. Why is it that players that don't perform are let go or traded (Leino, Lebda, Williams), but McCrimmon still has his job? I fail to see what positives, if any, are keeping him with this team. Yes, we more than likely will make it to the playoffs, and may go deep, but our Achilles heal since the 2007-2008 season is the less than stellar defense.

On a positive note, great grinding game by the 3rd and 4th lines. I am thankful that we have such talented rookies and call-ups. It makes it me very excited to see the talent and youth coming up in the Wings' future.

Coming out of training camp, did we expect Drapes to be the first star or have a multi-point game?


Yeah, I'll line up and admit that I didn't give him a lick of credit before this season; but the last couple games, he's come out and played his ass off. Well done and well deserved to Drapes tonight.

They're still way too pass-happy in the offensive zone. And too many damn blind passes.


This really bugs me. Way too many times I've been screaming at the TV "shoot it! SHOOT!!!" this year. Less fancy, more shooty, guys. And will SOMEONE please go to the net, instead of skating hard into the zone, and pulling up? I'm about at the point of saying let Big E play winger because he's the only one willing to drive on the goal...

That was right after he took a puck on the foot, so it made a lot of sense to me. I'm no expert lip reader though.

Games certainly are exciting these days, but its probably not good that we need 5+ goals a game to win!!

Yeah I feel good about the win but not all that good. They still can't keep the puck out of the net.

Yes! I was hoping that someone was going to make a GIF out of that clip when I first saw it.


By the way, what program do you use for doing that?

There's gotta be an easier way to do it than I have been. I used CamStudio (free) to make a screen capture .avi, iWisoft Free Video Converter to make the gif, Easy Gif Animator (trial - about to expire) to export the .gif to individual files for each frame, Adobe Illustrator to make the captions, Photoshop to put the captions on the frames, and Easy Gif to piece it back together. This one and the Nick one were kinda pains in the butt though because you need so many frames to read lips.


I think this is in Swedish too. :D

I could almost watch these all day. The Nick one gets me every time. Great job! Now we just need one for Babs when he's gone on a mini tirade.
