I really wish we had a goalie that could play the puck. It drives me nuts that Howard can't do it.

I used to cut him some slack cause I thought he was just nervous being a young goalie in the big leagues.

But my god this kid just flat out sucks at it!

I totally agree, seems like everybody gives Howard a break, I don't know why because he is a bad goalie,period.

Zetterberg only has two skills at this point in his career... Protect the puck...sometimes and get absolutely robbed consistently

We like our team

So where are the guys who think Jimmy Howard is an elite goaltender at? 

Every game?  Really?

Bulls***. I can count the number of bad games he's had this season on one hand. Goaltending is not this team's problem by any stretch of the imagination.

 

But he doesn't have to s*** on this team in such an important game.  


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

well that sucked

 

these Wings just don't look ready right now

 

after all, it is a transition year and with all the injuries it was a long shot to make the playoffs anyway

 

I guess they could still sneak in, but they seriously hurt their chances tonight

5 seconds of watching the Ducks and I realize what Detroit doesn't have. I haven't seen good man-on-man defense in Detroit all season.

 

And the Jackets just scored...

0-3 against the Calgary Flames.

1-3-1 against Columbus. The Jackets are improved, but three points out of ten is unacceptable when you are competing directly for playoff positioning.

It's hard to fathom how that third period happens given the circumstances. Man, does this team ever need a goal-scorer. When's the last time they scored three goals in a game?

Now they almost have to sweep the home games next week because of this loss.

Howard had a Sh** night.  But he is a good goalie & he has been there almost EVERY game he has played this year.  He absolutely contributed to this loss, but we are on the edge of the post season for soooooooo many reasons that have nothing to do with him.  We have way too many 4 liners, throughout this line up; And that... is the GM's responsibility to address. as it was last year & the year before.

I almost hope that they are out of playoff contention for the final home game of the season season, so that they get booed off the ice by the fans in Detroit. Because that is what they deserve for this season.

I am super mad.  Much like many of you on here.  I mean, I am probably madder then I should be about a hockey game.

 

But comments like these are sad and embarrassing.  This team does not deserve to get booed off ice.  They have made the playoffs for 20 straight years and have given all of us, including you, something to cheer about more then any other franchise in the NHL.  This team works harder on a nightly basis then many teams from the past red wings team.  This will happen with young kids in the lineup.  We dominated tonight and 2 stupid mistakes lost us this game.  it sucks.

Goal was a huge fumble by Howard but the rest of the team went off the ice while the puck was behind their own net with a forechecker right behind it

Wow what a joke of an effort when the season is hanging in the balance. Although I will keep up hope the very end, I am really kind of hoping they end up not making it because such a finish will almost FORCE Holland to make some moves ( ;) ) and get rid of the dead weight. 


HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

Make no mistake. If Howard faces 30 shots tonight instead of 17, I sincerely doubt the score line is the same. His head wasn't in it tonight

Here is how far we are from the top:

  • We couldn't beat Calgary
  • Pittsburgh beat Montreal without Crosby, Malkin, or Neal.

 

This team has zero <3

Boy, I wish Ilitch was 20 years younger and much hungrier to win another Cup.  Instead, he's got some Tiger bulls*** in his brain.  

 

He's let Holland deteriorate this team to the point where our best shooter is a guy who's afraid to shoot.

Good.

 

They actually play well in 3rd periods.  They tied it their last game as well.

We scored 2f****** goals again for Jimmy....whens the last time the Wings let him take a night off.

Tonight was a bit of anomaly with the bizarre goals but I understand the need for folks here to predictably spew their negs and hate.
