just phone it in next game boys....only start trying when you get behind...good strategy! How did that work out for you the last 5 games?
We can blame it on the refs all we want but there are so may guys on this team that are just out in left field.

I still believe this team is capable of so much more but it's going to take more than just adjusting the lines.

as I referenced earlier, that play has been called interference all season long....prior to this year it was a battle for the puck, but this year they have been calling the penalty. Nice time to go back to the old rule refs...

I don't mind a battle for the puck, but he clearly jumped into Nik. It was definitely a charge if it wasn't interference, which I think it was also anyways.

That's just the tip of the iceberg. PP not looking so hot. While we cycle the puck well in the offensive zone...we just don't seem to have guys getting some speed toward the net and getting open for really good scoring chances. Multiple people on multiple lines just floating around. I think we got screwed by the refs tonight, but a few of those were legitimate calls on the Wings, and they were given to us because players were playing lazy. I thought we were just under-achieving these last few losses, which we tend to do from time-to-time, but now I'm not so sure. I'm not gonna overact or throw a fit or anything, but I just have a general feeling of malaise about this team right now.

Hopefully we can get back on track on Thursday...or Iginla will finally have his breakout first game of the year and hattrick us.


Our Goaltending and defense both have been really good. Take out every team's worst game and we have the 3rd lowest GA in the league. The only thing we need to do is get our offense back going again. So again, there's not a whole lot wrong with this team besides lacking offense at this current moment.

This thread will get the most posts for a GDT by far so far this season.


As well it should. You can argue whether some of the penalties we took were legit or not, the main point is that we managed yet again, only 1 goal. That's not going to win you a lot of games. Just like you don't win a lot of baseball games scoring only 1 run, or many football games with just a field goal or touchdown. You kinda sorta need to do more than the bare minimum.

It was absolutely interference and it wasn't even close. Howard also got run into on the save right before that -- which should have been a penalty given the Franzen call.

That said, this team is brutal to watch right now.

As much as I'm pissed now, I'll be even more pissed in a few minutes, when Babcock, once again, refuses to call out the refs. I'm sure he makes enough money to, just once, let these clowns have real good (bad?). It might even be good therapy for the team.

Kronwall got dummy'd and the Wings got owned by the Wild, don't blame the refs start pointing fingers at the lack of offense.

I don't want to see Holmstrom next game, Bert either, bring up some guys that can skate.

Hard to score goals when you can only ice 4 skaters against their 5 skaters.

Oh, I definitely agree with you, I was just saying how it USED to be a battle for the puck prior to this year. This year the refs have been calling that same play interference all the time. Should have been interference.

Then keep Bertuzzi off the ice. There's four free minutes of even strength.

You get fined for calling out refs and depending on what you say you can get suspended as a coach.

Hard, but not impossible. There is such a thing as shorthanded goals. However, it wasn't until the 3rd period that we started getting hammered with penalties, so there was plenty more time during the game when it was 5 on 5 that we did jack s***. Harding is a good goaltender, but he's not Gump Worsley. He can be scored on.

Agreed. Jimmy's been great.

I still think we have a problem with flow reversal in our zone, and with outlet passes from time-to-time....that may be me just focusing on Kindl, though.

Agreed. Something really needs to be done to shake this team up. I'm not calling for a blockbuster deal, yikes. I figured after 3 games, we'd get back on track, but 5 in a row signals something isn't right.
