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.

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 />

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

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

I tossed you a PM on this GCL blackout issue.

I'm calling it now, Ericsson hat trick.

Last I heard, he was still listed as a game-time decision.

Wings win 5 to 3.  Go into the third down 3 to 2 as well.  It wouldn't be the wings if we don't have a heart attack until mid way through the third.

 

Or even worse the comeback tease.

I was just getting ready to say that we'll see a fight tonight.  Pumped.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

4-2 Wings  Big night from out top line (Brunner x2, Dats, Z)

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!
