Maybe Abs will take ballet lessons in the off season to toughen up.

I'm pretty sure Baryshnikov could beat his ass.

The lack of response by Detroit is amazing. First of all, none of the Wings have their heads up against a team they know likes to run around. They need an enforcer but we know that's not happening. But players like Abby and Rig can at least get in there and show some kind of heart. Babcock knows this and I expect him to address it during the intermission.

No changes - Red Wings will continue to get run all night, and nobody will do anything about it.

He's a total wimp.

Don't even get me started on him and his so-called boxing lessons.

If he doesn't challenge someone tonight, he can forget his reputation as a hard nosed player.

That elbow to the head at the beginning of the game may have messed him up. Probably a planned hit so he doesn't come back to kick their asses.

If you want a fight watch the UFC tonight. I'm happy with the Red Wings dominating the play and winning the game rather then throwing useless punches.

Sucks that we can't neg posts anymore.

We're getting ran all night and you're talking about the UFC?

Are you even watching this ******* game?

We're also controlling the special teams battle while Nashville continuously runs out of position trying to "send a message".

I'd much rather be at the top of the conference without "toughness" then out of the playoffs but play "tough hockey".

Weber ran Helm? Can somebody please step up and rock him....anyone....probably not. I just want to be wrong. This is one of the times where Abdelkader needs to do something.

I've already forgotten.

As much as I want Abs to succeed here, he's gotta do something that makes him valuable. So far this season he has brought nothing that the team couldn't get from 100 other players in the NHL or AHL.

As much as I'd like to see it, Abby started the night with an elbow to the face. I'm not sure he's the one to be trading punches.

But it'd be nice if someone would.

What if Lidstrom didn't get up and was seriously injured?

Your'e missing the ******* point. They're playing reckless and trying to hurt our players. Someone needs to do something about it before it happens.

I think this shows that the NHL is not taking the proper steps to prevent injuries to its key players. Nicklas Lidstrom is the best dman to play hockey, and he gets run like that, with no puck... ref right there, and NO CALL?!?! That was pathetic and we are very lucky Nick is okay. IMO there should be a suspension on that hit to set an example because that is just trying to hurt him.

I don't deal in "what ifs". I deal in results, like winning the game, and standings.

And I am sure most of us would like a healthy Red Wings team then being destroyed by dirty hits all night with no response.

Those aren't mutually exclusive.

There was a time when the Wings could do both.

He has increased his point total since last year, is +12 (2nd highest on the team), and it the most physical player on the Wings.

Winning is not as important as standing up for yourselves and preventing injuries when you've already clinched a playoff spot.

Trashville should be taught a lesson and not just on the scoreboard.

Sending a response won't magically stop the Predators from hitting, if anything it's going to make us play their game and not on be on the PP.

Where the f*** is Chris Simon when you need him. One swing and the preds would change their tune.
