Any one want to guess D pairings if Ericsson is out?

I'll go with:

Kronwall - Smith

Quincey - White

Coloaiacovo - Lashoff

I much rather it be this

Kronwall-White

Smith-Colly

Q-Lashoff

The way Quincey played against St. Louis I would not want him paired with Lashoff. I know Lashoff is the stay at home, defensive type but this will be his NHL debut. I'm not one of the Quincey haters but I'd rather he get his game rolling before taking care of a rookie...I'm not even thrilled that the original pairing had Quincey with Smith.

sugar and spice and everything nice...

I'd rather it be piss and vinegar... but sadly, I think your description is more accurate.

Actually kinda nervous to see them play again. I'm not a doom and gloomer but the way they played the other night was one of the worst overall performances I've ever seen them play. I hope it was a fluke, and they just play with some heart.

The injuries are brutal, but its giving some new faces a look at the NHL.

LGW

Let's go ahead and abandon the swiss cheese defense model pioneered by Mr. Quincey, and we might put up a decent game.

Let's go Wings!

Hopefully they got the rust and nerves out of the way Saturday night, and the real Red Wings show up tonight.

and if they don't and the same team from Saturday shows up ...a mushroom cloud appears in Detroit as LGW goes nuclear.

Interested in seeing Lashoff play.

Hopefully our team actually does show up and play.

Great too see GDTs again.

GO WINGS!

I have been thinking (always a dangerous proposition): when's the last time the Wings came out strong at the beginning of a season? 2001, if I recall. Since then, not so much. They'll be OK. As someone said, it could hardly be any worse than game 1! :lol:<br />

<br />

No predication, just play like you want to be there, and win this one, Wings!</p></blockquote>

Last year they started well before falling apart for 6 games

Are there any apps where I ca watch the game? Game Center,I think, will black out the Wings game since I live in Michigan.

if Q pulls his head out of his ass and plays the body, and we watch for the stretch pass, i think were good.<br />

<br />

i hope people arent that worried about the last game. blues have a legit shot to win it all this year.</p></blockquote>

To me the fact that the stretch pass beat them so easily just means they were a little rusty. I didn't see many other defensive breakdowns except when quincey got beat on the rush

I think a lot of it was rust and short camp, but there were plenty of defensive breakdowns, those were just the worst ones. You don't give up that many shots without a ton of defensive lapses. As I said in the GDT, Dats was even lazy covering his man around the net. If memory serves Jimmy made the save but it led to a great scoring chance and is something you never see from Datsyuk.

Kronwall and Smith letting two guys get behind them while on the PK is another ridiculously bad breakdown. And on the third goal Quincey was responsible for it was off a nice deflection when he was right there and should've been tying up his man.

Based on their performance the opening game this team really has nowhere to go but up.

I'll be pissed if the wings come out the way they did against the blues.. I'm not even upset that we lost or that we lost as badly. No one on the team looked like they gave a s*** at all.... With the exception of the goalies
