@AnsarKhanMLive: Ian White said he was surprised to be a healthy scratch tonight, Said he's frustrated and upset by it.

My advice to him: next time don't do something like have the whole ice open to your left, but play the puck to your right where these is traffic and turn the puck over to Bobby Ryan to have the puck end up in your net.

Ian White needs to learn to shut it. He ran his mouth during the lockout. Now he's complaining about being benched.

How about this? Stop sucking.

Kindl gets whipped, beaten, and benched by Babs all the time. All he says is that he's "dissapointed and has to just keep working hard". Kindl's been better than White btw.

He tried to play it to the left, his stick broke. If you're going to blame him for things, make it the less sensational accurate things and not the ugly looking thing that wasn't his fault.

White's great when paired with someone who he doesn't have to compensate for. I don't know if we have that right now. If we're trading him, it'd better be for a better defenseman. I could see White and a pick or prospect for Gleason or something. Who knows. Could just be us trying to motivate White.

Gleason has a full NTC till the end of next season

Maybe that will inspire him to play better, or decent at all would be a start. White has been terrible this season and was lost without Nick during his injury last year too.

I'm surprised White is scratched over Kindl, but it's basically a wash in my opinion. Kindl has been a little better lately I suppose.

I would prefer Huskins because of his style of play over either White or Kindl. However, having Smith returning is a huge boost to the defense.

I love how no one mentions that we lost Quincey for a couple games and we played phenomenal, but hey go ahead blame Franzen for whatever reason...

I agree although Frazen hasn't been in the lineup the last two games either. I blame both of them :P

I'm not a huge hater of any players on this team, and honestly I haven't noticed White at all, probably because of his injury. But it's good to know that Babcock is capable of scratching an established player. I guess Cleary and Flip are considered too valuable to sit before this?

I would be mad, too, to be the first healthy scratch of a significant player, considering he hasn't been the worst disappointment.

........I was talking about the 4th goal Anaheim scored in the 3rd period in the neutral zone.

Geez, why do you continue to attack people who have different views and opinions other than yours?

Couldn't he waive it? It's not like we're Winnipeg and he'd pitch a fit. We're better than Carolina and he grew up nearby. Not that that would guarantee anything but it'd help.

I don't necessarily think that we were playing pourly BECAUSE of Quincey.

Quincey wasn't getting a ton of minutes when he got hurt and wasn't taking on many minuses (-)

Why consider it an attack?

White said that, from what coach Mike Babcock told him, he has to "focus on going back and getting pucks and making sure that I get them out the first try."

What's stupid is that Babcock told him exactly why he's benching him, but yet he wants to keep yabbing his mouth. I know it sucks to get benched, and it's frustrated as all hell but you take it like a man, professional athlete, and above all, a team player and never let it happen again. Don't give them a reason to bench you, and you won't get benched.

Isn't Carolina #1 in the East currently? I wouldn't immediately say we're a worlds ahead of them, they have some serious talent and started to pick up the pace.

I don't really care about standings. We're a better team. They've gotten better but for various reasons to me we're still more appealing.

You seem to try to "educate" me on my criticisms after you refer to the wrong example.

Come now......

I'm with you. I feel a combination of surprise and confusion. I think this is one of the only times since Babcock has been here that I can recall him benching an established player. Its made more confusing by the fact that: 1) a guy like Cleary wasn't benched way before White, and 2) that he waited until after the Wings/White have started to have some success. I suppose healthy bodies are part of the reason, but it seems like this is a little late, considering the 5-7 games span where White was garbage defensively and producing nothing offensively.

I pretty much understood that Babcock just plain didn't use benching as a means to spark/discipline players. Now I'm just confused. And I know we need to get Quincey reps to test his injury, but he still remains Duke of Suck, A-Number-1 when it comes to blueliners.

southeast* the division, they are also tied with tampa and winnipeg for that very same spot, putting them one point into a playoff spot, 2 bad games and they aren't even close to a playoff position.
