Wings don't look like they want to make the playoffs that bad. Or they just have a near-terminal case of Durpitis.

 

No team doesn't want to make the playoffs, and they all didn't suddenly forget how to play the game.  They are, however, out manned at nearly every position on nearly every line.  Plugs can't beat quality players, no matter how much they "want it". 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

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

Wings need to trade for some mojo in the off-season

Tell that to all those awful teams that upset the Wings in the playoffs the past 20 years.

Completely outclassed. It's like a minor league team out there.

If they made the playoffs they weren't all that awful.  Ya know?

At least Howard wants to win.

Every professional athlete wants to win.  Do you think they want to lose?  It's a team full of mediocre plugs, rookies, and Datsyuk and Zetterberg.  They get outclassed in these games because the opposing teams actual deal in real talent, and put together competitive lineups.  We, on the other hand, always look for the cheap "if" solution.  "Well if Miller can find some offense...".  "Well if Abby can play like Homer...".  "Well if Kronwall can tighten up defensively...".  And on and on and on. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.

Good thing we're sitting White and Cola.... :glare:

 

Yeah... that's the problem. Needs more White and Cola...

 

This team needs to work so much harder, and worlds smarter. Whether its "plugs" versus great players/starters, it doesn't excuse the effort, especially from our top guys.

This team makes me wonder why I ever complained about last year's team. Please stop the trend!

Not necessarily true.

 

Not saying that's what's wrong with the Wings.

Given the way they're playing that's a pretty big "if".

You're right, no one wants to lose. What you don't seem to want to accept is that not everyone is willing to do what is needed to win. The Wings look flat, complacent, and sloppy, top to bottom. Its all avoidable, but they seem indifferent to changing their ways.
