Lidstrom going further into the negative +/-
His defensive partners are really going to put a crimp on his Norris chances.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

What happened to the "in the crease" rule?

Malkin was very obviously in the middle of the crease for the third goal.


that magically got changed overnight in 1999. Gee, no, I'm not bitter at all. <_<

Yikes, I just heard that a player on the Habs just suffered a collapsed lung...?

I cannot believe I actually figured that acronym out.


Impressed. :D

Also, how many minuses has Lidstrom gotten this season that are irrelevant to his play on the ice?


Agreed, Nick's +/- is so misleading this season. Particularly when a lot of his points have come on the PP this season.

With the exception of Holmstrom.
It's in the fine print.

I first read that as chimp. Subliminal suggestion, I guess, since they are playing "Orang-letang" tonight. He is "supposed" to win the Norris this year. Look where he plays - it could happen, stats or no stats.

A lot of it has to do with how Babs rarely puts him out there with the 1st line. He's always playing with the 2nd, 3rd or 4th lines and that obviously means he's not in on as many pluses.

Which clearly explains how Abby and Helm have some of the highest plus/minuses on the team...

Young guys/role-players to step up and show us/coaching staff that they have enough heart to be a Red Wing. Not much else.


In the first two periods, it was mostly the veterans screwing up, and only a few screwups by the young'ns/newbies/rookies. THAT'S what's scary. Bert, Rafalski, Kronwall, Draper, etc., etc., etc. :scared:

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Yah I do not like that either... the team, top line included, plays better when Nick is on the ice to feed them the puck. But, once Pavs and Cleary are back in the line-up we will see Nick's plus/minus go back up so no worries there.

We can sit here and blame Kronners all we want, but fact is it is the team that has been playing LOUSY defense for the past month, apart from a few individuals, and every game results in the same thing. "We need to start on time" or "we need to play better without the puck and make better decisions." Well, after a month I am not convinced that Babs's message is getting through to the team... this is unacceptable. Another note, Kronners has been the best dman this year along with Nick almost all season, so to sit here and whine about that bad play is dumb.

Fact is, the team is tired, and rightfully so, they have worked their asses off this past month; missing many players and dealing with a really tough schedule so they will get much deserved rest over the all star break and start from scrach in feb with Cleary and Pavs thank god.

Obvious interference on Hudler there. Big surprise on the non-call.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

I'm sorry but I'm not going to sit here and give Kronwall a free pass on that bonehead giveaway just because he has been playing well throughout the season. That's pure homerism.

Good pressure by the Wings. I really enjoy the Abdelkader line with Mursak and Tatar on the wings.
