How about Kyle Calder?

I'm still extremely curious why he was relegated to the fourth line after a great first few games. He suddenly started sucking after that move. Maybe he got in a particularly bad argument with Babcock?

Remember how good that little bloke was when he first arrived? Wasn't he like a PPG player in the first dozen games or something he played? Then he got injured and was useless in the playoffs.

We'll almost certainly end up either 5 or 6. I'm actually rooting for 6th though...we'd have an easier opponent (Dallas). We're on a horendous streak, but there's no reason to be too negative. We all know that the Wings can play better, and often do for the playoffs. If we play Dallas I'm pretty confident that we'll at least win that round.

Perhaps that's blind optimism, but you've got to find some hope somewhere here...

sadly enough I must agree with sandbagging the last few games. I seriously would rather play anyone the Preds.

Apparently he suffered a hand injury and just wasn't the same afterwards. In the hand shake line against Calgary he shook with his left. But it sure was weird, too bad because he looked really good and at the time just getting rid of J-Willy was fantastic :hehe:

Babcock seems so set in his ways until the bitter end, current example: Hudler on the PP point

There is no way any team catches the Wings for the 5th seed. Also, what makes you think the Stars are such a sure bet to win the Pacific? The only reason they are in this position at the moment is because of a 10-0-1 streak (which ended tonight). I think there is a pretty good chance SJ goes on a run to close out the season and win the Pacific.

Like I said, they're getting their crappy play out of the way. Wings have been a streaky team all year... it'd be good to start a hot streak during the playoffs ;)

Damn ... for the love of God ... 4-0 to Anaheim ??!! :scared:

This is getting pathetic, are we close to the losing streak of earlier in the season, what was that, 6 in a row or something?

You're right, we'll likely be fifth. It was more a response to a couple of comments saying that we'd be the 7 or 8 seed which obviously won't happen. I can hope that we play the Stars though.

And yes, the Stars aren't a sure bet for the Pacific, but they're by far the most likely to win it. Also, the Sharks are 2-5-3 in their past 10. That's not going to help them even make the playoffs at all.

Damn ... I don't want to be 5th and give Nashville home ice advantage ... can anyone say 1st round exit?

A week ago, we were talking about #1 in the West ... this is as SH*TTY as hell.

The next game is going to be even worse, San Jose beats them when they are healthy and play well.

Nothing excuses a lack of effort. Nothing.

Injuries or no injuries, players not giving it their all is a disgrace. They didn't try last night either, so they can't use the back-to-back excuse.

My Plasma may not survive another game like this. Complete lack of heart, this team has gone soft all of a sudden.

I'm off to sleep. Is it too much to hope to see a headline in the morning along the lines of "Babcock calls out underperforming Red Wings"?

My lord, Franzen is infuriating. Granted, he's our leading scorer, but he's got the ability to do so much more. I understand that the regular season can get monotonous, but that's where a coach should come in for motivation, no?

This is the worst team in a while that was working because of chemistry. We have a lack of talent out there combined with lazy guys that have all kinds of talent. In 08 they were stacked, in 09 they were stacked. We need to trim the fat this summer (Holmstrom, Hudler, Cleary) and get some guys that can play well and don't get worn out.

You'd think that would be the plan, but they've already re-signed Bertuzzi, so I'm not optimistic.
