At which point did Ericsson look bad tonight? I didn't notice. Most of the team looked rather sluggish for the first 15 and last 15 minutes of the game.

Kindl > Ericsson.


Is that a big accomplishment?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Probably for his back account.

Kindl > Ericsson.


Agreed, I'm a harsh critic of his and he made good passes tonight and that hit on Zibanajed was great! (f*** YOU CHRIS NEIL GET SOME) :hehe:

He didn't look that bad, he just didn't look good. I can recall 4 times that Ericsson pinched in the offensive zone and left Kindl to defend a 2v1. Plus, Ericsson did absolutely nothing on that third goal for the Sens. He was a bigger screen than the Sen. He wasn't bad, he just wasn't good.

Is that a big accomplishment?

I got called in to work when it was 5-0, what was up in the 3rd? Just slacking off with a big lead?


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

Hudler/Miller/Emmerton/Kindl all looked above average.

The helm line was beast.

The Zetterberg line showed flashes of brilliance early on, i want to see them bury the puck, that line has the most skill on it of all the lines and they walked away with zero ES points.

I liked our 5 goals; I didn't like their 3 goals. More PK practice for everyone. Anyway, a big heck yeah to Bert for scoring the first goal of the year; ditto to Lidstrom looking like Datsyuk, White looking like Lidstrom, and double ditto for Emmerton and Hudler pleasantly surprising me. GAWD I'm glad hockey's back!!!

He didn't. But he's the whipping boy. If he isn't awesome then someone will say he sucks. Especially since Hudler scored and they couldn't rip on them.

His pinching makes me nervous, but Ericsson's play has given me some hope. Hopefully he improves.

Great start for the Wings, I just wish they could've kept it clamped down at the end.

As much fun as the five goals are, I don't want a repeat of last season's GAA.

Just got back from the game. Great 2nd period, not so much in the 3rd.

Gonchar should be embarrassed with his play on the Bert goal. He just didn't even try to make an effort to at least rush back. Anderson was horrible as well.

Stuart fudged up big time by trying to do Kronwall's job on the second goal. He was puck chasing and completely left his man alone even though the guy carrying the puck was Kronwall's man.

I don't know wtf E was thinking on that 3rd goal. He didn't even try to move his man... he just stood there with him creating an even better screen for the Sens. E owes Jimmy a lunch for that goal allowed.

Going by that theory, even with Ericsson's crazy contract he might be strapped for cash this season.

Anyone have a clip of Datsyuk's crazy dekes (before the Hudler set-up)?
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Kind of a funny moment during introductions when Bud Lynch announced Dan Cleary as "Don Cherry".

he said something weird for abdelkader too

Drew Miller looked good out there tonight. Got in on the forecheck, forced the turnover, and shoveled it out front for the Emmerton goal. Bert played relatively physical, surprisingly. I'm a big fan of the Abdelkader-Helm-Bertuzzi line. Horrible third period, though. We clearly eased up on the gas pedal.
