You know what?  That was the worst call tonight and that's going some.   Howard has stood on his head for this team throughout the playoffs.  I'm sick to death of these simplistic knee-jerk responses from some posters here.  GET.REAL.

 

I agree, but he should have challenged the shooter better.  

 

Then again, we probably wouldn't have scored that 3rd goal if Howard stopped that shot.  Just wasn't happening for the Wings tonight.

win or lose this team I think has gone farther than any of us expected.

we will be even better next year.

Personally, I don't give a **** about next year right now.  If you have a 3-1 lead, and a lead going into the 3rd period at home in game 6, you should win the series.  The Wings came out with a piss poor effort, while the Hawks came out in game 5 on fire.  They are not that much more talented than the Wings, they are out working the Wings.  That's where I have the issue.

It doesn't, but if we use that series as example, the Sharks were going home for game 7.  So are the Hawks.

 

I still wish this game was tomorrow.  Not healthy for us or the Wings to sit around for two days thinking about this game.

 

It gives one of the best coaches in the game some time to work his magic.

Howard did look pretty unraveled before the shot, but I agree that he's earned some slack.

 

Besides, he's not a robot. I'd be pretty pissed off after that call too.

Doesn't matter how much magic Babcock has if his players aren't willing to put forth the effort needed.  Hold the 1 goal lead.  You have a top 5 goalie behind you for f***'s sake.  Give the guy a hand.

Looks like those 3 wins may have been a fluke. Good season but 3-1 lead in a series no way you should blow that.

Babcock is a great coach, but he's not the reason we beat Anaheim in game 7.  Line combos are only as good as the players who either do or don't show up.

 

If Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen don't show up for game 7, we won't win.  Babcock can't turn s*** into candy.

Do you live on this site just to spread negativity 24/7? Take a breather, get some sleep..get your happy boots on and attempt to be positive and cheer this team on Wednesday night.

I can't defend smith anymore, these are not rookie mistakes. I can maybe defend a forward for losing his man, but not a Dman. The scheme was man to man how do you let your guy sit in front of the net? Datsyuk and Z need to step up big time in game 7. The 3rd and 4th lines can not continue to carry this team and expect to win.

Who is Franzen?  I don't really know of anybody by that particular name.

His magic should be spent on trying to improve the pk/pp.

I agree..never been a hater but he is such a float sack sometimes.  Pucks landing right on his tape and he can't even get a shot away. Him and Flip need to sniff some of those salts, drink 11 cups of coffee and slam some Red Bull before next game.  WAKE UP !

Just stating my opinion.  I'm not here to attempt to do anything.  If I feel good about our chances, like I did against Anaheim, I'll say so.  If not, I won't.

 

Don't like it, put me on ignore.  I'm not here to post according to your wishes.

Uh...  DUH!...  You have "met" GMR before right?  Or at least seen his/her work on here?  Some people just don't really thrive on the whole positive outlook phenomenon and it works for them.

Coaching only goes so far in the pros - it's about talent and effort.  The Wings lose in the talent department, so they have to make it up in the effort department.  when they don't, the talent gap becomes that much more noticeable.

 

Babcock can only do so much. 1 day, 2 days a week a month - it won't matter if the players can't execute the gameplan due to lack of talent and can't play sound fundamental hockey because of lack of effort.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

I tried being positive here once, for a week or so, but got several complaints and wasn't good at it in general.

A part of me died when Lilja was let go.  



Anyway, I've seen about ten Red Wings game 7's or so, and from what I remember, the team that scored first won ALL of those games.

 

First goal is huge Wednesday.
