Wow. I didn't expect St. Louis to outplay us so badly. Good for them that Hitchcock seems to have lit a fire under their asses, but Lord I despise that man. And the Blues fans - well, let's just say if they all fell off the face of the earth, the world would be a much nicer place.

Now, what to do to dispel the ennui the Wings seem to be suffering from?

Pathetic performance to say the least... You can't continue to put Datsyuk on a line with the 2 players on the team with THE WORST HANDS! Babcock is shutting Datsyuk down by himself.

I really want the Wings to make a trade for Brian Boyle(NYR), Hudler and a 2nd rounder would do it i think.

I'll second this. Boyle's turned into a decent all-around player since arriving in New York.

He's big, he has good hands, he hits, fights and wins faceoffs.

He rewarded his hardest working players with PP time. How is that a bad move?

Not at all, except for Hudler and Kindl on the point...Reward those three for sure, but cripple them with Hudler and Kindl... Heck I am all for playing Helm's line in the top spot...

Am I the only one who finds it strange that Hudler is getting the majority of the scorn right now considering the performance of Datsyuk and Zetterberg?

I'll admit that Cleary and Hudler have been terrible. But where are the leaders on forward? Franzen seems to be our go to guy now and he takes off nights, so how can this team stay competitive when we have two stars who aren't playing like it and a goal scorer who is taking on a role he shouldn't be taking?

Not a fan of the off night. Think you know it wasn't a fun one tonight when you see Nick saying, "Are you f**king sh*tting me?" to end the game. Sums it up pretty nicely.

Ho hum. Hopeful bounce back next game. Really would be a long regular season if Wings are streaky with wins and losses.

Cheers everyone.

What the hell happened to Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg? I understand their linemates (especially Pavel's) are pretty rough at times, but those two have always produced regardless of their wingers. They didn't play well together either so blaming it on the current situation isn't entirely fair. The best players make everyone around them better and quite frankly neither has look interested most games so far. It's going to be a very long year if those two don't get it together quickly.

The Red Wings look so slow too. Granted, no forecheck and clogging the neutral zone like Hitchcock always does will do that to teams. So glad we get to watch the boring ass Blues, Predators and Blue Jackets 18 times while the Red Wings look completely lost trying to pass through four guys at the blueline each game.

I feel bad for Jimmy Howard. He competes harder than the rest of the team combined besides a 41-year-old Lidstrom and Darren Helm. Losing is one thing, but this lack of effort is so unacceptable. Nothing will change either unless Holland forces it to happen. Too many comfortable players that have been here that can't/won't put in the effort because there are no consequences nor alternatives.

The Perfect Human uses imperfect language? I didn't think he had it in him. I didn't know it was possible for him to gain even more points with me.

Honestly, I think most people here are afraid to say Zetterberg and Datsyuk are playing like crap. It's almost like it's sac-religious to do so. Hell either they are horrible or both hurt, and if they are both hurt, then sit them down and let them heal Mike! I have no issue saying they are playing crappy, but I hope it is due to injury and not aging. I am all for a couple of players sitting down for a bit, some to heal and some to get the freaking point through their heads! Which ones are hurt, we'll probably never know for sure, but if needed put Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Cleary on IR, sit the hell out of Franzen and Hudler...

...a lot of folks complaining about Commodore, but what do you expect when he gets the crap minutes of the game. Say what they want, but Babcock still hates Commodore and is NOT playing him on purpose. How many minutes did he play tonight? Sure, he is not a top 2 defensman, but f*** man, Backes was running everyone out there without regard, put Commodore on him and beat the s*** out of him, at least put him out there so he can try to stick up for his teammates. I am seriously questioning Babcock at this moment. Especially in a game like this, Backes needed to be floored for his antics. And maybe, just maybe that would've lit a bit of a fire...

ahh there you are. i was hoping youd be in here :hehe:

just an overall pathetic effort tonight by the wings. and something has to be improved on the PP. my goodness...0/6 with only 6 shots?!? and they even had a 5minute major PP. you know you give up on your PP when you have cleary and Abs on it :ph34r::ph34r:

It doesn't help that you act like an ass.

Also the post I responded to sounded EXACTLY like you wanted a certain player to fail.

I hate it on nights like this when you know we should have won games like these and then end up on the other end.

I think you are implying on paper the Wings should have won, because no way in hell did they deserve it. They shouldn't be rewarded for efforts like that. I would say you hope a loss like that turns things around the next game, but the history of late with this group says otherwise.

Fantastic post, I am glad there is still the occasional quality post written around here. :thumbup:

The Blues announcers are un-listenable, particularly the lead guy who used to be the Avalanche announcer, I think.

Mind-numbing!
