Needless to say the Wings have a new officiating target to replace Holmstrom in Tootoo. Absolute joke that he got tossed 10 mins for chirping.

it's sad to think that he'll soon be dead in a bus in alaska.

:'(

Here's something to distract us all from this game - Rick DiPietro's picture for this year.

seriously? facing 4 basically breakwawys, and being hung other to dry the other two times by pathetic defense... you seriously think goaltending was our issue tonight.

Unbelievable. our issues tonight were the other 5 guys on the ice tonight. at all times. Not Jimmy Howard.

Open up the eyes. Amazing what it'll do for you.

Once again, read where I said he wasn't as bad as the rest of the team. Nowhere did I mention that goaltending was "the issue" tonight, but it wasn't 5 guys on the ice at a time that played bad, it was 6. There were NO bright spots tonight.

Yeah... because an average goaltender is going to stop our defense from giving up 4 breakaway goals... give me... all of us.. a break...

unreal.

luongo is good. allstar goalie. just at the wrong team.

The only thing that makes tonight's loss somewhat tolerable is the fact the Nucks have given up 5 to Anaheim halfway through the game. Start Schneider, trade Luongo..hold up maybe keep Lou, trade Schneider..ah crap who knows...Can't wait for the controversy to start.

Me saying he wasn't as bad as the rest of the team is pretty much an agreement that he was the least of the problems but it doesn't mean he wasn't one. You know what goalies get payed to do? Stop breakaways and power play shots. Anytime a goaltender lets in 5 goals, he is not doing what he is payed to do regardless of how bad the team in front of him is. Everyone on the ice was terrible. The only reason I even mentioned that the goaltending was bad was because too many people are trying to say it wasn't. Everyone is in agreement about the rest of the team.

When the team plays as bad as they did in front of him tonight and he only gave up 5 goals, he gets a pass from criticism. I like Jimmy Howard enough though I'm not his biggest fan either. I have no problem being critical of him if he deserves it, and in the past, he has, and I'm not convinced he's as good as many think he is. But tonight, he shouldn't be part of the discussion. He made a lot of real good saves. Unfortunately, so many of the saves he had to make were good saves because he was hung out to dry again and again. Again, I just think that in light of the mindblowingly bad effort from the skaters, it's not worth loading up on one of 2-3 guys who seemed to be trying to play out there.

Worst part of the game? I didn't play Oshie thinking the Wings wouldn't let in too many. Whoops, there goes 3 points.

Fantasy hockey, LOL :)

Oof. Really bad game for the Wings. Hopefully they can put it behind them and turn things around quick. Some good teams are 0-1 after today, so there's no need to panic, but you don't want to start slow with this shortened season.

FYI - The Blues had the same # of players playing overseas as did the Redwings. We even had our own KHL All-Star. Let this game get started. 1st post of the year here by a Blues fan! :nono:

ouch. I did not see this outcome.

Yup, only in Gary Bettmans NHL is it a 10 minute misconduct for leaving your feet and checking the boards, then chirping a guy and trying to fight, and another 10 minute misconduct for Franzen chirping a guy to a fight after watching a team mate get crosschecked 5 or so times in the crease...

Pathetic

What happened to hockey?!?!?! What happened to "the code" of the game!!!!

What makes you think that? The Canucks are pretty damn talented... he hasnt performed. Why is that the wrong team?

I had Tarasenko drafted on my team and didn't play him thinking there'd be 1st game jitters...well 12.5 fantasy points later :glare:

That's odd, Kyle Quincey was our ice time leader.

That explains why we got smoked... I mean... he was directly responsible for what... 4 goals?

I'm not a Quincey hater (yet...) and I think he has potential to be a descent player, but none the less, that is a mind-numbing stat. The times they are a-changing, indeed...

Remember me? It's the guy that made the thread awhile back about the Red Wings being in trouble this year. I didn't think they'd be in this much trouble, even after one game. Bar none the worst game I've seen the Wings play... at least in recent memory. No positives, and unbelievably sloppy, unwatchable play.

Could very well be a LOOOONG 48 game season.

If Cleary and Ericcson pick it up we will win a few. Maybe even squeak at the playoffs but that's all I see right now. Quincey was brutal.

It's the first game of the season, these guys have not played NHL hockey in nine months, and there has been significant personnel turnover. The wrinkles will take some time to iron out.

Those of you who have concluded, based on this single game, that the season is over should consider quitting right now.

Everyone is going on about how bad they played... Every team played bad tonight, Vancouver lost 7-3 to anaheim, the kings lost 5-2 to chicago, tampa beat washington 6-3. I knew the first few games would be bad, we have new lines that need to develop chemistry, and everyone is pretty rusty. Don't count the wings out, there was a bright spot of the game though... that it ended lol

Also, should point out that we had some of these types of games last season on the road as well. I won't hold any judgement on this team until I see how the perform at the Joe.
