I don't get it... He's right, that's the best they've looked all  year. They managed to keep SJS at bay on the second night of a back to back. I thought they played well too

Ian White wasn't on the ice giving the puck away.  Lashoff I thought had his strongest game of the year and as I mentioned in the GDT, he's getting really good at reading where the attack from the other team is coming from and stuffing them before they cross the blueline.  Kindl was good last night and even Quincey had a good game.  If they play like that consistently, then we'll compete as long as our forwards get healthy and stay that way.  Not having Flip, Helm and Tuzzi sucks. 


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

The defense was mainly good because of Abdelkader and Cleary. The way they create space for the d-men is truly a joy to watch. Hope Babcock starts double-shifting them, with the legs and hearts they have 30-35 minutes per game shouldn't be a problem.

Rumour has it Murph uses them personally to create space for him to get hot dogs between periods too

Completely agree on Lashoff.

 

He seems to have really good instincts as well as an ability to effectively gain body position on the opposition. Against LA, there was a play where Kopitar was skating into the zone and Lashoff bodied him up and took the puck.

Unsaddle... is referencing Ian White's #18, Maltby's old number.

 

DIdn't get to watch this game, but I think we've figured our expendable/tradeable D-men at this point.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I don't think he has a spot anywhere if the D continues to play this well.

 

We signed him because of uncertainty in our D corps right? We didn't know exactly what Smith or Kindl were going to be and Lashoff came out of nowhere.

 

He was a depth pickup and I think he should be treated as such.

Colo, White, Sammy, Bertuzzi. Ughhhhh. 9 million down the drain.

 

Sammy and Colo have definitely been dead money so far I will agree with that..Bert will be back hopefully and will be a good 2/3 liner for this team like he has already proven he can be.  Not sure what is up with White..hopefully Babs is just lighting a fire under his ass to let him know he can't hide behind # 5 this year.

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 !!

I like this group on defense. I would maybe prefer Huskins over Kindl, but even Kindl has been better lately. Writing seems to be on the wall for Ian White.

He can kick and scream and pout all he wants. Fact is the team D has been better without him. Lashoff looks like a player. I thought Quincey has looked as good as I've seen him in a long time. Smith has ability everywhere. Kindl has been looking much bigger this year. Took on Thornton in a battle and won it, not easy with the size. E and Kronwall have been the best. E is a dang good shutdown guy who's finally clearing the garbage from the crease, and all Kronwall is doing is leading the league in points from a Dman.

All in all they look solid. I'll be interested to see what happens in the future with the extras White, Colo, and Huskins
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know he's currently on IR and can't be traded, but If Ken can get anyone to take Cola off our hands we should take it. 

 

White for draft pick.

 

Huskins, I would hold onto for now.

Don't know if it's been mentioned already, but this dawned on me last night:

 

Kronwall

Ericsson

Smith

Quincey

Kindl

Lashoff

 

All Red Wings draft picks except for Lashoff, who we signed as an 18 year old. An all home grown backend!

Quincey not so much "home grown" but I agree for never having a pick higher then 20th aside from Kindl, our defence is pretty solid. But hey whata do I know? Time to fire Ken
