Guys we don't need to hit the panic button just yet. Like someone said above, we're still second in the west. There's still what, 15 games left to play? As far back as I can remember (since I'm young), the wings ALWAYS played sloppy like this in February and March, and then turned it on when the season was in it's waning moments. Yeah it frustrates me too to see them play like this but we should give them the benefit of the doubt shouldn't we?

I don't mind the losing but could they at least put a solid effort in? They played so well in those 2 games against Boston. I thought we've been giving them the benefit of the doubt since early December? The team is not hungry. I think even Babs is not hungry anymore. Has he snapped on this team yet? Do they just ignore him? I can't figure this team out.

They have 3 days off and play a team which has to fly across the country to play them and they score 1 goal at home? We're the easiest team in the league to play right now. We don't compete. It's all perimiter shoot from the boards hockey. No one pays the price and they miss the net ten times more than they used to. There is no puck support and Z and Dats are trying to be the Harlem Globetrotters and stickhandle through 4 guys all the time. Teams have us figured out. Clog the neutral zone and pick off the stupid east west passes. Teams have been employing these tactics for years on us. It can be combated if we hustle and support each other. Babs says you should always see 5 Wings on the tv at all times. I usually see 2 maybe 3. The Wings always lose the numbers games. Instead of dumping the puck in they keep it and turn it over. They create no offense. The power play is predictable. No team speed and too many battles lost.

This team is outworked EVERY game. The Joe is an easy place to play right now. It has been for all of 2011. I keep hearing they will be good when the playoffs roll around. Last I checked we have not clinched a birth yet. The standings are so close right now. We can't win 1 game a week and expect to get in. Right now I'm just looking for a win. This team reminds me of the 2006 team which played lazy perimiter hockey. It's all individual and no team play. The talent is not being used properly. It coaching or player execution? I don't know. All I know is that this kind of hockey is a recipe for failure. They all seem pretty content losing though. It seems no one is mad enough to do anything about it. I thought Babs would have lost it by now but obviously he hasn't. The players don't seem to care. We heard Franzen and Zetterberg say how good they thought the team was playing during this losing streak.

Matthew Barnaby just said the wings will be the stanley cup champs, on espn2.


He also said the Caps would win the Cup last year.

That's because they were. Minus some spurts in the LA and PHX game, of course. We were in the SJ game until Joey's gaffe. That's not to say I enjoyed the results of the games; it's a complete bummer we lost in PHX. With that being said, I felt we owned the first period last night, and totally got screwed out of a double minor (obviously). But, as Babcock said, "Those are the breaks." You just deal with them and move on. I don't want Babcock to become irate again - we know what the problems are, they know what the problems are, and I'm sure are trying to correct it. I tend to agree with Jimmy's sentiments following last night's game - we didn't win, but we definitely put forth a far better effort than what was shown in the 3rd period in PHX. There was definitely a conscious effort to dump and chase last night, and it paid dividends in the first period. Then we kind of relented with that strategy after we were down and I saw the old "try to deke at the blue line when there are 4 opposite colored jerseys around me" routine. The good news is this: atleast we didn't give up many goals, and we now have recent film on how to protect a lead in the NHL. Unfortunately, it was the Kings maintaing the lead, but the Red Wings will take notes I'm sure and move on. While I don't disagree that the Joe is easy to play at right now, I firmly believe we can take a few positives out of last night's game and translate them into a win next game. A couple calls and bounces here and there, and it could have been a different outcomes last night. In any event, here's to a stomping of the Oil on Friday!

Defending the POS makes you look like a fool. Have you taken a look at his stats lately? He can't stop a puck at a critical time of the game. His rebound control is like a ping pong ball bouncing off a ping pong table. He shouldn't ever try to puck handle, he causes a turnover or makes bad decisions.

The guy is a bum and a waist of a roster spot. Wings are not winning the cup with him in net.


Wow, you really have issues don't you :blink:

What a load of crap. After reading this one would think that we were headed for an 0-82 season. Guess what ALL team have nights when they don't play well or play well and still lose. And NO, we don't have more than other teams. In fact, that's the point. We have the 3rd best point percentage in the entire league which means that we have fewer nights like this than 27 other teams.

"This teams is outworked EVERY game." That really takes the cake. And you are wrong. We could win one game a week and still get in. That's about 6 games which is 12 points and that would give us 98 points which is easily enough to get in.

Next time, try to compose a rational post
Do or do not. There is no try
