Just checking in ... really, 3-0 Columbus ??  Are they for real?  They beat the Canucks the other night in OT.  

 

Since I live down here, I watched a lot of that game in particular - they basically dominated Vancouver all night long.  This CBJ plays hard every night and when a more talented team (like Van and the Wings) don't match the intensity, the games can go the other way really really fast like it did today.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

We all knew this was coming. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But--well, you get it. Any time we find ourselves doing really well and feeling really good about ourselves and saying things like "If we can do [x] and [y], we'll be fine," you know there's a pathetic shut-out loss to the Blue Jackets hiding just around the corner.

 

Realignment can't come soon enough.

Can we take a shot with the overripe Nyquist very soon? I don't think it would hurt to inject some actual skill into the top-six.

 

Unfortunately, we once had an overripe GM by the name of Yzerman in our system.

It's all about potential and having hunger as a GM. Holland is too complacent because of all he's already won.

And you're forgetting they got within a game of making the Finals a few years back. Struggles since then, but I think he'll turn it around.  

Oh and Yzerman traded Quincey for a 1st round pick

Wait you mean our third and fourth lines won't do our scoring every game? Top lines need to be changed, this is just getting stupid. Yeah our second line is good defensively, too bad we need to score. If I see Abdelkader or Cleary bumble more pucks I'm gonna throw some kind of temper tantrum.

Watch Babcock go right back to Abdelkader-Datsyuk-Cleary despite not scoring a single goal tonight. He's deliberately tanking right now.

Starting to agree! I want to swap Tatar and cleary or even see Nyquist on that line! I honestly don't mind Abby being there but it needs a guy like Tatar on the other wing.

our 2nd line has been our worse line latly. Whats up with babcock? He sure splits up Z and Dats when it isnt working but he sure taking his time changing up this line.

 

Poor Datsyuk hes basically Tom Brady throwing to wide recievers without hands.

I didn't watch the end of this one, what did Prospal do to piss everyone off?

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

If he were tanking, he would have pretended to change up the lines for the 3rd period of a 0-3 game, to get some scoring, but he would have put Datsyuk and Zetterberg together with some scrub, like Abdelkader, to make sure they don't score. Oh wait...

Him and Abby were jawing back and forth, he pointed to the scoreboard and got 10 minutes. :lol:

I have felt this for some time, but the words crystallized in my mind after today's game.

The Wings no longer have the personnel to play the puck possession style of hockey effectively.

Even when all the injured guys come back, they still wouldn't have the skill to outplay most teams like they used to.

20 years of late draft picks have finally caught up with us. Our prospects have skill, but not enough to overcome the size/speed deficiency.

I foresee  some lean years in Detroit, before the farm system can be replenished with sufficient talent to play our style again.

That's actually pretty funny.  It's hard to tell whether he was pointing out that the BJs were winning, or sincerely trying to explain to Abby that there's such a thing as a score board, and that it's good to know about and contribute to it.

Which was largely done on a roster he inherited & a hot goalie that he got really lucky on.  They missed the playoffs last year by 8 points & he's on the outside looking in again so far this season.  So looks like he's gonna be 1 for 3 in playoff appearances?  Sorry, I for one don't buy into the whole "Stevie is the front office messiah" thing at all.  Anyway there are two internal candidates, Jim Nill & Ryan Martin, that should be ahead of him in that line for Kenny's job if he decides to hang it up in the next couple to few years.
