It's all Helm's fault!

It's his fault because during 4v4 situations you play man to man. It was a 3 on 3, and he had the late guy.

 

Not his fault, he is still getting use to the nhl, ya he should have covered him, but ultimately I blame Quincey... we haven't played good since we got him, he is like the plague.

Hey, if I played for a team, I would say the team name wrong.  :D

 

I played for the Minnesota Ice Hawks 99-00, 00-01 before they moved to Rochester. We played out of Le Sueur MN. Thx

Dudes, 

 

The OT goal against was not Kronwalls fault, and it certainly wasn't Brunners. 

 

Ericsson was Kronners partner, and he was nowhere to be found. 

 

It was 52's fault.

We are in the same boat as the last few years. No snipers=early playoff exit. Hope I'm wrong but the last few years seem pretty clear.

Snipers... what snipers do LA have? Boston?

Depth scoring is more important than having a Stamkos. We could use another good goalscoring winger for sure, but we need scoring from everyone right now. Bottom 6 have to chip in a goal every now and then. Filppula has to score. Our D has to score. No one is scoring.

I don't understand why it was Brunner's fault. Where was the D? If the D was in the right position, Brunner wouldn't have had to attempt to get his stick in the way.

 

In this situation, Brunner WAS THE D man! That's why it was his mistake.

If you did, and I believe you did, then you are pretty ignorant about the effect of deflections on goaltenders.

I completely agree, all Ericsson's fault.

No. 

 

Ericsson was the D-man. And that was his man. He was nowhere near the play, even though he should've been.

This was a team lost. Particularly every single player who played on our powerplays. Jimmy and our D played beautifully tonight, but our powerplay units are what really let this team down.

Z, Bert, Dats, and Brunner are the only ones doing anything offensively, and obviously its not enough, simple as that, bottom 6 needs to chip in. Franz needs to stop falling on the ice for 2 minutes and actually play, and flip needs to shoot more

LA and Boston had a much better top 6 in their Cups than our top 6 this season.  And their bottom lines were grittier and harder to play against in a playoff series, than our bottom six forwards this year.  

 

There's nothing about this lineup that screams success and long playoff run.  You either have a team built on great talent, which we don't have much of anymore, or a team built on hot goaltending and grit/stellar defense, which we don't have either.  

 

This team has no identity.

My uninformed answer. Ouch.

 

OK, to be fair, saying Howard hasn't shown he has it in him is, I suppose, too harsh. He's shown he has it in him. He's won some games for the team in front of him (though none of them really spring to mind, likely because I'm dead tired and here mostly to complain). I'll even go so far as to say he has all the requisite tools and pieces and what-not to be the best of the best. But he's got to put it all together now, take it to a slightly higher level.

I find your lack of faith disturbing

Why do you say that?

 

Without a fact Homer was the best EVER around the crease. No argument. But maybe you have something else to ask me?

I think I know what the correct list of things are after a Wings win and loss.

 

Wings lose

1.  Blame Franzen

2.  Blame Howard

3.  Blame Emmerton

4.  Blame Ericsson

5.  Blame the Power Play

6.  Blame the coaching staff and management

7.  Whine on the forums until the next game.

 

Wings win

1.  No one gets credit

2.  Blame all players except Dats and Z for sucking. 

3.  Whine on the forums until the next game.

 

Course, I should know how this goes after being on these forums for so long.
