If we were going to sign an old winger, why not pay an extra 2 mil to get Jagr instead of Samuelsson.

In case you haven't figured it out, Franzen is Fernando Torres around here.  </p></blockquote>

Lol I wouldn't not compare the two. Torres is way worse than Franzen.

Frustrating period. Hopefully they can turn it around in the second.

Not his fault his GM riddled him with this defense and a group of lazy, old forwards.  </p></blockquote><br />

I get not trying to judge them too much right now, but so many of these problems are nothing new, we're now just not nearly as good on defense and even older. It's not as if we haven't seen most of this crap before. The same guys won't skate. The same guys are playing sloppy in our end. The same guys are playing soft. This is nothing new.

 

This is why we need to make a big trade; we need to move some guys that likely feel untouchable and send a message that no one is untouchable (sans Dats and Z for profoundly obvious reasons). At this point, I don't even think the benefit will come from who we would add so much as shaking up the chemistry of this team and sending a message. Still might not help, but I don't know what else we can try that they haven't, because again, with too many of these guys, these issues are just nothing new.

I can't decide which is more troubling, the 17 shots against or the 2 shots for.

 

Has to be the 2 shots for, we are team built to put up point, control the puck, and create turnovers. And the exact opposite is happening right now. Getting scoring chances should be a strength for this team.

The two shots for - that was rearing it's ugly head last year too.


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.

We should be on par with everyone else in the league at least. Blues were in the same position we were yet they are kicking our ass.

A lot of over reaction going on right now. The Wings are just rusty, things will pick up in the 2nd period.

 

Dude, we look like Ireland at the Euros right now.

 

;)


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Guys/girls, if you want to watch hockey game tonight you have two choices, Rangers-Bruins and Habs-Leafs (I just can't believe that the Habs-Leafs are more exciting than the Red Wings)

 

Write it down... Leafs make the playoffs this year. 

 

At this rate... we wont.   I think we still do, but its gonna be close if we do.

This team has been a rush team the past 2 years. Puck possession kind of fell apart after 2009. 

 

On another note, Howard is getting ample time to get back into game shape.

Ok. Im glad youre willing to admit that losing to the best team in the league, arguably, on opening night isnt the end of the world.

I know we all expected this and it's only 1 period of the first game...but ugh...our blueline looks awful without Nick. Then again...last season everyone not named Nick looked awful as well.... :annoyed:
