Dallas had a fire-sale at the deadline, and yet, they have won 4 straight, and sit behind the Wings by two points with a game in hand.


Great point that will be lost on most here!

Well, the positive side is they got 2 of 4 points from teams we usually lose to. Back to back games with some travel no less.

Normally I try to stay positive about the Wings, but I have to say this:

 

It is an absolute joke that Filppula is asking for 5M+ per year.  Does anybody remember the last time that he looked dangerous?

At this point he can ask all he wants, but if Holland gives it to him then that's on him.

Team choked in the 3rd than choked in the shootout Howard could have won the game. Brunner could of won the game

Howie gave us that point...  offense has to step it up

Datsyuk has been uninspired in the shootout this season. He has tried pretty much the same old stuff. I miss his unpredictability. 
 
Also whos idea was it to have Quincey and Cola on the ice at the same time? and against Toews too. I can't count the number of times I have seen a goal go in with a Red wing dman laying on the ice in front of howard. 


To be fair, they shortened their bench in the last 10 minutes, Toews line was out there every second shift.

2008-2009 playoffs?


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

If Holland gives Filpulla 5 million I swear to God I will not ever watch a Red Wings game again.

Zero chance he gets close to 5m... I see 3,5m average again shorter term 2 years. Let him walk if he doesn't take it.

Pretty sad how we're sitting here hoping for other teams to lose so they don't catch up to us. Boy, things have changed a lot in Red Wings nation.

1 point isn't good enough.

 

Yes 1 point is better than 0 points

 

Fact remains we aren't that good.

 

Offense is a factor for us like a lot of things....

We need to go on a run, like the Blues had before they lost tonight.

 

I know it's unlikely, but that's the only way to secure a playoff spot.  We can't finish .500 and hope everyone else will too.  At least one of the teams below us will go on a run.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Why dig on Flip? The whole team is struggling to score

Because he's the one asking for an obscene overpayment.

I am obviously in the minority here but I thought they played very well tonight and good last night against San Jose. Am I pissed that we didn't walk out of Chicago with 2 points....of course, but it seems like we are playing with passion. Gus belongs in this line up and Miller and Abby have superceeded their potential. I think a lot of the guys have stepped it up, even though we apparently cant score more than two goals in one game ever. The Toews goal wasn't some lame five hole garbage from the point. Howie made the 1st save and NOBODY is going to make the second save on Toews. This is a team that will most likely win the Presidents Trophy, the best goalie tandem in the NHL and has offense out the wazoo.
To me, the last two games, playing very talented teams have been really good. I'm more concerned about playing teams that are clearly less talented than us. Nashville will show this teams true colours, much more than us losing in a SO to the leagues best.
Raising another Red Wings Fan!

The future looks bright in Hockeytown!

because he is asking for big money and has like 14 points. Abby has 10 points and 1 more goal playing top 6 minutes just like Fil. No excuse. If a 4th liner is managing 10 a 5mill player should be doing far more than 4 points better.

Because Filp is supposedly asking for 5 mil per and the way he's played this year he should be lucky to get half of that.
