UnFn believable!! all year long we get a player back from injury and in the same game we lose someone else! tonight Bertuzzi is back and we lose our best Defensive Defenseman!!

The word that comes to mind is.... s***! I don't see White being the guy to step in here. Babs clearly doesn't trust him. It will be Lashoff or Cola.

That's playoff hockey. Oh well. I think that people are overstating his importance. He's been good, but he's also been playing most of his time on the third pairing.

Get Well Young Fella! Next Man up... Time for Colo, Lash or Whitey to step up!

Notice when Dekyser left, (around 12 mins left) the D went to CRAPOLA! this blows!!

One thing tho, Dekyser is the real deal! GREAT Defensive D-Man!!!

The fact that the Wings were playing with five defensemen was a big part of that, believe it or not.

babs has stated that , No Dan De then no playoffs. I feel that that may be a quote that will be repeated after this series, the Wings

just cant buy any good luck. I think Cola will get the nod, vet with a bit of size. White is just to small and a liability too often.

I think you are understating his importance. And in Game 1 only Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, and Kindl played more minutes, and he's looked better than both Kronwall and Kindl.

Devastated. The hockey Gods hate us. Says a lot about how good DK's been that this is as big of a deal as it is. Babs says we don't make the playoffs without him--hope we can stay in without him.

Obviously a huge blow to us. I personally think that Colaiacovo is underrated around here though. He has actually played pretty well when he has been in the lineup. The complaint with him has largely just been his injury issues.

Not to mention replacing your arguable 2-3 defenseman with Lashoff or Cola, who are both cold (at the very least) and distributing more minutes to Smith, Quincey, or Ericsson who have all been intermittently dreadful.

I would say there are only 5 players or so who's loss would be worse. I still have faith, but if that final 10 minutes shows anything...
