Maybe Sheahan should do some dental work on Seabrook for trying to neuter Flip.

I regret that I have used up my quota of plusses for the day.

Just a struggle to score goals lately. I still feel like the Red Wings do too much along the perimeter.

Not a bad period overall, but they have got to get the next goal here.

if nyquist can put on some weight and take checks along the boards more effectively he will become a dominant player. looks really good out there when not being checked to the ice.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Just positioning themselves for maximum likelihood of a first round threepeat! :P

Yeah, Edzo never takes off his homer hat. And Pierre never takes off his "I love Edzo" hat.

Unfortunate goal, but I'm not really displeased with our 1st period play. We're looking pretty decent out there...

Nyquist looked very good, especially at that last shift. Shaehan looks very bad. Hoe does not really understand what to do on the ice which is way worse compared to Nyquist's and Tatar's first NHL games. At least two years away from NHL.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I always just imagine Olczyk sitting in the broadcast booth wearing a Hawks sweater and a Pens hat as he calls games.

You're making that assessment based on 5 total shifts in the NHL? :blink:

I'm guessing he's just getting over being so nervous he feels like he has to poop.

at least sheahan can cycle and take a check. he looks strong with the puck. if we could morph sheahan and nyqusit's good attributes you would have a pretty great player.

I'm easily amused.

Sheahan has promise. That's for sure. Not here yet, but he's doing pretty darn well for a try-out (which is essentially what he is today).

I think he plays keep away alright and is where he needs to be, he just can't finish. Though that's only going off the few times I've noticed it was him

You know what I am now convinced that we need Datsyuk with Zetterberg going into the playoffs. Yes the Fil line has been fantastic, but Pavel's wrist must be hurting him pretty bad for Franzen to be taking faceoffs and Franzen NEVER wins a faceoff and that will kill us in the playoffs. To top that, Franzen coasts around too much to be playing with Pavs. If his wrist is hurting, the Eurotwins should be paired together and I still think Fil and Hudler would be able to hold their own on the 2nd line.

Datsyuk- Zetterberg- Bertuzzi (Bert would do a great job opening up ice for the Eurotwins)
Franzen- Filpulla- Hudler (The line has worked before and Fil is playing fantastically)

Like I said, with Pavel's wrist clearly bothering him, I think this is the best option going forward and would provide us a lethal first line and a pretty good second line. The fact of the matter is we have not been scoring goals lately... when that happens lines have to change.

We have definitely flipped the switch. Outplaying them but down where it counts

My thoughts through the first 6 minutes. Then the goal and a bit of let down.

Wings need to get their offense going against a crap goalie. Playing Rinne is going to be tough enough without averaging only 1 GFA going in. Of course, if they plan on losing, it won't really matter <_<

I think he is nervous. However, this is not an excuse for not even trying. Natural hockey talent is easily seen even in first NHL games. Shaahan showed nothing.

With that lineup, the third line of Nyquist- Abby- Cleary/Miller would be great.
