The long overdue infusion of youth and passion.



Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

One of my least favorite things is how so many opposing players get their "first" against Detroit.

my favorite thing about this team is how they blow opportunity after opportunity to earn points they should get playing a bad team.

 

it's like they don't want to make the playoffs.

Brunner, Kindl, Tatar, and, frankly, moving on. With so many youngsters joining the lineup, this team harkens back to the Bryan Murray era. Lots of new faces with eyes on the future.

Holland wants a new first rounder so he can play them five seasons in GR.

  • Finally seeing mid-level prospects getting a change to be significant contributors on the Wings instead of running out and trading more picks for veterans (well, even if it took injuries to Helm, Bertuzzi, and Coliaccovo to do it)
  • Damien Brunner's shoot-first-ask-questions-later approach
  • Datsyuk arguably playing as well or better due to his insane skill and incredible intelligence, even where his age suggests his physical tools should be winding down
  • Jimmy Howard standing on his head at several points this season, and Wings fans generally unified behind the quality of his play (even with GAA and SV% numbers that prompt non-Wings fans to claim he's struggling)
  • Any Wings game where GameCenter Live doesn't excessively buffer, pixelate, or cause Comcast to throttle my ethernet connection, requiring me to have to restart my modem and router for no apparent reason.

 Gamecenter works better on Xbox than regular internet streaming believe it or not.


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

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!
