Absolutely terrible first period. When was the last time the Wings were outshot that badly in a period?
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Anyone who thought our D wasn't going to be a mess was kidding themselves. I admit, I was trying to be optimistic as time went on too, but let's get real, losing Rafalski, Stuart and Lidstrom is just a huge blow, especially when you add nothing even remotely comparable to even Stuart. But we talk about that and we don't often talk about the fact that great players like Lidstrom make the guys around them better. So what are these guys going to look like without the Lidstrom-bonus magic skill points? Well, I guess we are starting to really figure that out.


I can't imagine that Holland isn't shifting in his seat tonight, and can't imagine Babcock doesn't want to strangle him right now either.

We are getting owned. Combo of both the Wings flat and the Blues are bringing it.


PS. The way this game is going they don't need Redden

Relax it is only the first period of the first game, what's with all the doom and gloom.

Come on ... that wasnt a dive.. that was interference all the god damn way.  accept it, this team is getting out played, they know it, that was a play made out of total desperation by our hapless D. 


Kronwall hooked him around the hands and his skates came out from under him.  


That was a dive.  


And yes this team is getting horribly outplayed.

Did they ever skate circles around us in the 1st. Gotta match their physicality. Nice dive by Tarasenko on the Kronwall "Penalty".

Great job by Jimmy to at least keep us in the damn game.  the defense sucked, the PK sucked, the forecheck sucked, the offense sucked...basically everything by howard sucked out there that period...  we're clearly either not ready to play, or not good enough to play good teams.  I know its early, and im trying not to over react... but that was beyond pathetic.

Maybe he was watching footage of the 2002 team when he said that.  Can we get Nick out of retirement?

Looks bad. Feels bad. Gotta realize Blues are great and we'll probably get better though. Probably. Datsyuk only one who looked decent in the 1st, and Howard.

So, if this is any indication of how bad the Wing's D is, how long will this season be?


48 games and not one game longer.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

The only good thing about that period is that were not down 7-0 ..wow. Cmon boys. And to all you people panicking after 20 minutes of hockey go jump off a cliff. It`s really pathetic.  I will grant you this..after watching Chicago play today and that first period by St Louis we look like minimal the 3rd best team in the division lol

It was a dive. But it was just as much interference. The only people that showed up for the game so far at Dats, Zetts, and Howard. Between the first period and the red/white game the only time Franzen has been mentioned is when he was switching teams for the PP in the scrimmage.

This is sad
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Tarasenko definitely embellished. Why do your feet need to give out when Kronner at most made contact with his stick at hip level?

We are playing the top team in the conference at their arena.  Let's all calm down and wait about 10-15 games before we sell the farm. 


The Wings do look pretty bad right now, though.
