I'm actually impressed with how we're sitting in the standings considering our terrible special teams in a penalty heavy league. Seems like they always manage to pull a win out when we need it, even if it's an ugly one.

Some of the worst special teams in the league and the most man-games lost.

With that in mind it's quite a feat we are doing as well as we are. Hopefully the team can keep improving and start getting more healthy.

We're lucky not to have any big losing streaks.

 

The standings are so tight, that three straight wins/losses can make a tremendous difference in where you're seeded.  It'll probably be that way even with 75% of the season gone.  


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

Hey figured we should enjoy it. We all know this years team has some issues. Bound to happen sooner or later. But the fact remains we are in the PO race. In the end, winning is what matters. It doesn't matter how you do it.

We're okay, when the power play gets going we'll be in great shape! If that was happening we would probably be between 1st and 3rd.

I feel that this has benefited the team to some extent. Without these injuries Tatar wouldn't have been called up, and he's playing quite well. Also, we wouldn't be seeing the incredibly steady play of Lashoff.

 

Out of all the called up players, I feel that those 2 deserve to stay in the lineup.

You know, all things in this life go in cycles.  If we're in a down turn of the cycle, it's probably a natural thing.  That being said, I still am happy that we are where we are.  Considering everything we've been through, we do have some bright spots.

We still have a game in hand on Nashville.  We win tonight, and we're back ahead of them, "just like that".

As crappy as Vancouver is playing, (and without Kessler) they're bumbling through that stupid division at like 8-2-2 and the Sedins aren't even going yet..

There's no way we'd be in first. Chicago is looking like world beaters right now. STILL undefeated in regulation.

Yup. When we get our steady dose of that team, its curtains.

Wings are playing great hockey, maybe not to there full potential because of all the injured bodies they have. Wings will be in the playoffs this year!!!

I'm satisfied with the season so far, all things considered.  We've been able to stay competitive while getting a look at some of the younger guys. I love renewed energy that Zetterberg has brought.  Pavel still leaves me speechless most nights.  Howard is what we thought he was (not average!)   Chicago won't go undefeated the entire season :)   As was mentioned so long as the Wings avoid any prolonged losing streaks, they are in good position to make the playoffs where anything can happen in the NHL.
