I think Babs and co. screwed up in hiring 2 assistant coaches w/o any NHL experience, that's got to be affecting us negatively on some level

If this is what life without Lidstrom is gonna be like I'm scared. I don't want a defense that barely hangs in there most nights. I want a shut down defense. We don't have one now with Lidstrom, but without, it looks like the defense get compromised quite a bit. We have had good goaltending this year to make the defense better than I really think it is.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.

A loss is a loss, tough one though..thought we played pretty good for most of the night. With this depleted lineup its hard to hide some of these guys who are playing terrible (Hudler and Cleary)


Cleary has an excuse. Bad knee and the cortisone injections and draining is not helping. Hudler is just a drain. Period. I cannot watch him anymore without bellowing at an inanimate object.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

sadly I agree, Howard and MacDonald have both had to be exceptional on many nights due to numerous breakdowns in coverage and odd-man rushes against

The number of gift-wrapped opportunities he blew tonight were innumerable. Great play by Flip and Z only to get to that nincompoop. Its an uphill battle with him on that line every night, but tonight we really needed him to get the hell out of the way.

The Wings' defense functions like some kind of hive mind; without proximity to the collective intelligence (Lidstrom) everyone gets dumber and less organized.


I'm thinking (hoping) that Lidstrom can see how much this team needs him so there'll be no question about his coming back next year.

He'll be beck.

Yeah. We'll go with that. :cool:

Its not all the knee. He was bad early on this season as well. The knee is just a convenient excuse. If its effecting him that much he needs to be in the press box. That would help the team more than him being on the ice does.

I understand that... but playing at a rival on a back to back... also we played without Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Bertuzzi, Ericsson, Howard, Kindl (and Eaves)... It was going to be really tough to win this game, I'm just glad they brought effort and didn't lay an egg



Good teams win anywhere and regardless of who's in or out.

Really strong effort and the Red Wings outplayed the Predators for a good chunk of the game. Yeah it sucks to lose given the standings, but Nashville had everything in their favor tonight and the Red Wings almost pulled out a win. Seven regulars out and playing on consecutive nights is tough to overcome.

The powerplay has to get fixed though -- it's getting beyond pathetic now. Even before Datsyuk and Lidstrom got hurt, it was pretty dismal and it has just continued to decline. You could definitely argue that special teams have made the difference between a number of wins and losses recently. The Red Wings have kept the games close even with so many injuries, but the special teams struggles have played a huge factor in losing by a goal instead of winning by one.

Hopefully some healthy bodies get back on Tuesday, namely the big three. Plenty of time to win the division still.

Here they come. Told you guys that Wings would fall behind both st louis and nashville. How does a 5th seed sound? Keep playing this way and it will be a reality....if not 6th.

The Red Wings are still four points up on Nashville and ten on Chicago. No way they fall to 6th -- that's an extreme exaggeration.

Granted, I do believe the upcoming road trip out west will have a huge influence on the Red Wings shot to win the division. If they get some of the major pieces back soon, I still like their chances to catch St. Louis. Even if the Blues hang on, a first round matchup with the Predators wouldn't be a nightmare scenario.

Very proud to be a REd Wings fan. The boys were out of gas, but kept going until that last buzzer. You cannot ask for anything more from a team decimated by injuries and played last night. I knew last night the 2 points would be huge because it would be a long shot to win tonight so I am okay with that. Now they get a well deserved day off tomorrow and head out to California. I dont care what anyone says, even the best teams have trouble winning when they have as many players missing due to injuries as we do. Not only that, our top 2 players are amongst that list, making it even harder. Hopefully we get Pavel and Nick back for Tuesday and start catching up to the freakin Blues.

When Pavel is back Id like to see Nyquist get a shot playing with Hank and Filps ... the kid can make plays, skate, and hold onto the puck better than Huds.

The one thing that is driving me absolutely nuts lately is the fact that Homer adds absolutely nothing to this team and every night seems to get 2 minutes for being old and not athletic enough. I have seen enough of that guy that is for sure.

It might be more beneficial for the Wings to finish 4th or 5th due to the travel. If the Blues win the West then the Wings could play the Preds in round 1 and then the Blues in round 2. Then the only travel nightmare would be Vancouver in round 3 provided they make it that far.

Good teams win anywhere and regardless of who's in or out.


It is a nice theory but far from realistic.

All the negs are way too funny! It reality, don't neg me, neg the Wings. Even with Datsyuk, Bertuzzi and Lidstrom the PP and PK stunk. Something should have been addressed. Franzen is not returning from his mediocrity. I hate being right, but Franzen has been invisible, Hudler has stunk a lot. These are things you cannot deny, you just neg because someone is telling you what you are starting to realize. I told you all summer and all year thus far. Enduring negs, slander and name calling, yet they never seem to prove me wrong. You can mark these words, Detroit will be no higher than the #5 seed come playoffs. Lets see if you are man enough to debate it...

edit: Didn't figure anyone would be man enough to debate. Don't be too upset when your son grow's up to be just like you....and you know what you are.


I didn't personally neg you, but I am curious as to why you are so convinced the Red Wings are doomed to fail? They were ahead of the Blues basically all season with a healthy lineup. If Datsyuk, Lidstrom and Howard all get back around Tuesday, there's still 13 games to go to make up four points. If you are so convinced the Predators will easily catch the Red Wings by that same margin, then it isn't impossible for a healthy Wings team to do the same.

Again, I will also state 4th or even 5th wouldn't mean an automatic first round exit. If San Jose gets in as the 7th or 8th seed, I would rather deal with Nashville than the Sharks again.

You are right. I expect too much. I will wait to pass judgement on this team when it is 100% and then see what happens. I will wait to see Franzen The Great make his return in the playoffs before I spew more negativity about him, Hudler as well. I just don't like when I state my opinion and get negged for no reason or at least not debated why someone thinks I may be wrong. I could see if I said "Wings Suck" or didn't even try to put together a post, but I simply just said after the deadline that St. Louis and Nashiville were coming hard and I wouldn't be surprised if they both passed then Wings up. Of course I got laughed at and negged, but it is happening. Injuries or not, it is happening. I hope a healthy Wings team climbs back up, but Nashville and St. Louis don't seem to be slowing down. I just get pissed over the neggs because no one seems to want to say why they disagree. They just negg because someone says something bad about a Wings player. They aren't all perfect and are far from criticism, be it negative or positive. Last I checked I paid to support a discussion forum, not a forum that someone just comes in and says Red Wings are Gods and then negs everyone who says something bad about a Red Wing....sorry I expect some discussion on a discussion forum...
