Kronwall has been wonderfull lately, especially offensively

Lashoff looks really confident for a rookie

Kindl seems to be starting to live up to his potential

Ericsson has been solid defensively and is using his size more

Quincey is starting to get into the play more offensively, which helps when the forwards can't always finish

Smith hasn't been as flashy as last year, but doesn't make many mistakes and he likes to hit


That leaves white as the odd man out, sadly. He can be a shot blocking machine for a different team (preferably in the east) and get us a decent return.

Since we started playing these 6 together, we have let up a tiny amount of goals. Low GAA is the key for Stanley cup winning teams. That paired with a healthy group of forwards (knock on wood) come playoff time makes me confident about our team this year. Relax people :)

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Offense still needs work - only one legitimate goal tonight.  We barely escaped that at the end

 

Wait.... I thought we won 2-1?

I think they'll finish as a playoff team

 

BS. Sorry again they ain't a good team as of now. Maybe the shortened season hurts them. Tough. Still ain't a good team. At all.

Well let's be real here Colorado hasn't been a good team since the lockout after last.

Wings won the game by one goal and when you start winning those, then things are starting to come together. At the same time we have lost a lot of one goal games this year. We are on the cusp

Haha my bad.  I must have been watching a different game.  Yes, we did in fact score two legitimate goals tonight - I will be more careful in the future

Why did Tatar only get like, 30 seconds with Datsyuk again? Finally shake up the lines to kickstart a, let's be honest, stagnant offense only to go right back to the same old terrible second line after Tatar fails to get a hat trick in two shifts. I think the second line is pretty reliable defensively, but Datsyuk should not be centering a grind line.

Edit: I don't mean to sound like I'm whining. Definitely glad we won. Just wish the victory was uh... more convincing.

Tatar had a pretty bad game... Howard pretty much stole this game. Some huge breakdowns gave Colorado grade A scoring chances. D still needs to get better but they are learning and have been much better the last 5 games. Colorado came with a winning effort they played a great game that gets 2 points most of the time. Good win

How did he have a "bad game"?  Because he finally didn't put up points?  Nonsense.

He didn't. He just wasn't one of our top 3 players in this game. Still lightyears ahead of Abby and Clears though.

He had a string of poor shifts where he got burned defensively, made poor passes, and generally wasn't strong on his stick. I believe this was in the second period.

 

If Tatar had a bad game, please explain to me the game Cleary and Abby had.

Cleary had a terrible first period, but was okay after that. Abby played a solid game and helped setup the Wings' second goal. It is funny that the Cleary-Dats-Abby line would score one shift after Tatar was taken off the line. I do still think that Tatar should get a chance on that line, but IMO Cleary was much worse than Abby last night and Tatar didn't play as well as he had in the past few games.

I was curious, so I took the time to check. Twenty-three games into the season, a goals-per-game scored average of 2.74, second lowest since 1999-00.

Make of it (if anything) what you will.

 Good thing our D turned things around since our terrible start.

We had a much better team in 99-00, so I guess it can't be that bad if were scoring just as many goals
