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.

 

Blame Quincey for sucking on both*

That's ok, sugarpie.

We can now blame you if we lose. :P

Why do you say that?

 

I believe anyone who has at least some professional experience would be able to look at things a little bit differently than those who are armchair fans.

 

For instance, I have played rec league as a goalie since I was 27, and been reffing for 5 years now.  I am experienced enough to know that deflections that go past a goalie are part luck and skill.  I also know that deflections that actually hit the goalie are due to good positioning and luck.  Howard had the positioning, but didn't anticipate the deflection off Brunners stick.  So, I fail to understand how someone with Juniors experience can look at that situation and say that it was a weak goal or one Howard should have had considering the circumstances.

Damn!  Forgot Quincey.  :D

No fight = no win. Simple as that.

When did I ever say that? I was talking about our PP the whole game vs the Hawks. Better look back through the pages bro. You don't score on a 5-3 you usually don't win the game. Our PP was horrible. I've watched enough Wings games to know this. Do I need to say I've been a Wings fans since 91? Yeah I've followed them and the NHL pretty close regardless even if I've played the game at a junior level....

I'm convinced that Nightfall (Jim Carey) should be our goalie from now on.  

 

Howard is just not cutting it.  


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

But how do you really feel, Nightfall?



For the record: I'm not blaming this loss on any one thing, any one Wing. This team at large has Major, Major Issues.


Don't Toews me, bro!

I thought the Wings played an all around good game. There are a couple changes I would like to make though. Franzen, in my opinion, is not cutting it on the powerplay. I would like to see him switch spots with Bert. 

 

- I would like to see Brunner play with Pavs and Bert because no one is really setting Brunner up on Hank's line with Franzen... he would be more suited to play with Dats

- Babcock and Renney have to get our powerplay going. I think having Bert on the top unit is a start because he has his big body, can make some nice passes, and goes in front of the net. 

- I thought Smith was outstanding tonight.

 

I think the wings will regroup and come out firing on Dallas

My bad man.  Thought you said something about Howard being terrible after letting that deflection in.  I stand corrected.



But how do you really feel, Nightfall?

Honestly, I really feel tired of the negative rhetoric especially from the "die hard fans" here.  I see more positivity in the HFBoards.



I'm convinced that Nightfall (Jim Carey) should be our goalie from now on.

Haha, we would have lost that game 12-1.  I suck balls.

Howard will have to stand on his head for this Wings team to make the playoffs.

 

Howard is one of the the Wings best players no?

Franzen rolled around on the ice like a baby for a while again, and when he realized it didn't end up giving the hawks a penalty he got up and skated away, so the only thing that was hurt was wings fans pride (franzen has no self respect)

A stick touched (yes touched) his side. Good ol' mickey redmond did everything he could to try to make it sound like franzen was legit hurt, but he didn't fool anyone
