He may not have been scoring much, but at least he's great at skating through the neutral zone, entering the zone (without just dumping in the puck) and setting up some offense and battling on the boards. We have ZERO of that going on, so having Flip would be a huge help in that regard. At least we'd be getting some offensive possession.

Saying we're not missing anything without Flip is just stupid.

Totally agree!

Datsyuk 0 shots wtf ...hawks definitely know how to stop our big guys no space at all.

Ya he's had no support all night! 2-3 guys on him all night

Yeupp. He's had three good plays. Nice shot on goal too.

20 minutes left in the season unless the big boys get going. Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen HAVE to be better. No excuses, Jimmy is giving us every chance to win this game.

Well, unless a very different Wings team from the first period arrives, I think it's time for them to start booking tee times. The Blackhawks came to play for at least 40 minutes. The Wings are holding on to dear life only through the amazing ability of Howard. I'd like to see Bickel and Shaw end up somewhere through the glass, but I don't think Nyquist bouncing off of them like a BB off a brick wall is going to make that happen. Other than throw off the lines, which it appears that Babcock was dickering with anyway, I'm not sure that losing Flip hurt all that much. We have zero offense. In fact, we've all turned into Mikael "The Logo Killer" Samuelsson. No traffic, no goals. It's not like this is news here. I still have a sliver of hope that somehow the WIngs can find some confidence and play like I know they are able. Despite being down and the Hawks looking better in the first 2, I don't think they look unbeatable. Time to go get my DRW MacFarlane dolls out and create the uber shrine on the entertainment center. Maybe it will help?

at this point we all should be pulling out all the stops and trying anything

so yes, it's time to start playing with your dolls ;)

sigh.

Not a great effort so far.

Abby has been brutal since Game 4. he was our firestarter for the anaheim series, and for the first few games of this series, but he's done nothing but take penalties the last 3 games.

Franzen, while looking a tad energized at times tonight, has not been good enough this playoffs. It's time to trade him this summer. Take what we can get.

As others have said, the top 6 needs a major upgrade. Not sure who the big free agents are in terms of forwards, but lets get somebody.

Go Wings!!!

Why do you say Flip is done as a Red Wing?

Sent from my MacBook Air and my two middle fingers bangin the keyboard furiously. lol

Because most want to see him let go/traded after the season. I still don't think it will happen.

Too bad nobody would be willing to take on that contract for a player that SOMETIMES shows up in the playoffs and has looked less than mediocre the past 2 years.
