all right, I'm off to watch the Kings game. They've had some trouble scoring goals too, but at least when they're not scoring they still hit people and fight.

You know commodore, if I didn't know any better, I'd say you want Brad McCrimmon fired.

For real.

The only thing worse than sucking, is sucking and showing no emotion about it. But hey, if the players dont care ther're losing then I won't.

The Wings are Crosby's mustache


:hysterical:

LOVE these similes/metaphors/comparisons - whatever the hell they are.

One thing you can say about Wings' fans - we cling well to our twisted senses of humor.

"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.

I know there are few who will agree with me but this team is in big trouble. Even when the others get back.


At this point, I honestly don't see how they get out of the first round of the playoffs.

A few decent scoring chances, but mostly low percentage shots. wristers from 60 feet out or from the side boards.


And very few screens or traffic.

Wow...so frustrating. They are doing so many things wrong, and have been doing them all season. I'm trying to look at this in a calm way. We can see what they are doing wrong, but it's not so clear what you can do about it. They're just not thinking. They're making stupid passes and stupid plays, and that's not something easily fixed. Babcock can run passing drills until they pass out, but it won't make them stop taking the stupid passes. They can take shooting drills all they want but it won't make them suddenly start taking the smart shots.

Looks like MacDonald played well, though.

I absolutely hate to say this, because it's sort of the "nuclear option" but blaming injuries just isn't cutting it. Missing Datsyuk and Stuart is hurting, but let's be honest, they were playing pretty poorly all season. Their good record to start wasn't dominating games, and we all saw at the time some holes in their play that have only been exaggerated recently. But they were always there.

But anyways, back to my "nuclear option." The team needs a roster shakeup. Howard is not the goalie of the future, he's struggled for too long and has a long history of being inconsistent. He earned the starting job last year, but not for his whole career. He was only on the team last year because he had no other options. The Wings hoped it would work out and now I don't think it is.

So, here's hoping Holland makes a trade deadline move or two, namely:

Bring in a solid goalie. Yes, we will have to clear cap space and lose a player. It sucks but it's going to have to happen.

Also, fix the defense, which may include trading someone. With the talent on defense we have there's no excuse for this. We need fresh blood, just to make them try again.

There is a clear lack of passion on this team. This Wings team is not the hard working team we've come to know the past few seasons. I don't think the team should be blown up, but I'm thinking a minimum of two moves is necessary to help this team get out of the first round.

Let's see if the Steelers can cheer me up tomorrow !!


Only if they lose badly - including their yambags. :sly:
