Ok, Brunner didn't deliver tonight. Apart from that, it was still a good game by him. He'll deliver more if he's in with good linemates. Could be even Tootoo or Tatar if you ask me. He just needs guys next to him who are working very hard and are able to give great passes.


I totally agree. Even when he's not potting goals, I've been really impressed with his compete level and how quickly he's learned to shore up some of the weaker aspects of his game. He's not put off the puck so easily now and is always one of the hardest workers on the ice.

Bye bye Columbus, see ya in the Eastern Conference next year ya hard working dicks. Bad game, 1 point of 4 against Columbus is inexcusable anyway ya shake it. We desperately need some reinforcements up front. Howard and the defense are starting to settle in, but we have no depth up front. Abby and Dano are playing too much, Tatar isn't getting a real shot. We need Fil and Helm to get the team speed up and give us more depth up front. Whenever Bert is healthy will help too, Sammy can fly down south and sleep on the beach for the rest of the year as far as I'm concerned, rather have Andersson/Tatar/Eaves/Miller/Emmerton in the line-up over him when everyone is healthy.

I am also looking forward to the mass exodus of bandwagon fans that have jumped on board over the last 20 years.  Having gone to Ferris back in the mid 90s, I fell in love with that hockey team and they were not that good.  Still, the 2,000 fans that showed up to the games were enjoyable to watch the game with.  They were knowledgeable and appreciative of what the team brought every night.  Sure, they weren't a 1st place team, but hell they worked hard and the fans appreciated it. 

 

When they had a great season in 2003 and won the CCHA title, the morons came out of the woodwork the next year.  The arena was sold out every night, but talking with these people were annoying.  They bitched non-stop about the team.  They bitched non-stop about the coaching staff.  It was less about enjoying the hockey game and all about a "what have you done for me" attitude.  After a down season, the morons went away and it was back to normal again.

 

So yes, Top 10 pick if they don't make the playoffs and we get to start the "fan" purge.

They are going to need a little more than that.  A top defenseman would also be on my list.

I still think we have as good a shot as anyone, if Helm and Flip can come back and finish the year healthy...

I like how its unfolding. Wings control their destiny, what else could you want?

If the Wings want to make the playoffs they will have to go on the road and earn it. If they choose to do that, this team will be ready to do damage in the playoffs.

Only team the Wings have to watch out for is the one in their own lockerroom!

Can you please refer me to some good Florida Panthers sites?

This is one of the last things you want to read from an opposing player. Is it really that easy ?

 

Explaining the 3-0 Blue Jackets' win Saturday, before the 3-2 win in a shootout Sunday, Derek Brassard, who opened the scoring for Columbus on Sunday, was succinct.

"I think we played really hard," he said. "We just played the game they don't want to play."

This would be the power play quarterback as well... they need scoring and although they are doing better defensively, they need that top minute guy who can quarterback the PP too...Kronner just isn't it. He is good at what he does and is important to this teams success, but he just isn't that top guy who can play in every situation...

I agree, while it must of been nice being born with the Red Wings "silver spoon" in your mouth, a few years of humbling loses would do this fanbase well.  Don't get me wrong, I still want as many Cups as possible, but you never really appreciate the Cup until your team has fought long and hard to earn it. Not that they haven't earned this success in the last 20 years, BUT every season leading up to 1997, including the dark Dead Wings era, are what made that 1997 Cup the most memorable Cup of all of them.  If the Wings go another 10+ years without a sniff, I think it'll bring the bandwagon, spoiled, fans down a bit and really appreciate what it takes to 'build" a Champion, just like Brian Murray and Scotty Bowman did...
