Not a glorious victory, but you take what you get. Especially if you hold it against our first game from last season. :cold2:

Good win. Hope to see some lineup changes next game, though.

Also, NBCSports needs to fix its video. Arena looked way too dark today. Like the Hawks arena. Pretty sure I wasn't drinking.

Sloppy game, couldn't convert on the PP or the penalty shot. Miller kept Buffalo in the game. Going to have to do way better than that against the better teams. Those fans leaving with a minute left only up one boggles my ******* mind and makes us look stupid on national TV. Empty seats again really bothered me. Oh well, everything will get better as the season goes along. Big weekend in Detroit sports coming up. Go Wings!

It was a solid win.

Wings outshot the Sabres 34-20

Wings killed some key penalties

Wings power play looked solid and had a lot of chances

Miller played solid, and thats why the Sabres only lost 2-1

I know many here wanted to see a 10-0 shutout, but the Sabres are still a professional team. There are no guaranteed wins.

Alfie looks like he's been playing for the Red Wings all his career. Fits right in with his two-way play and smart decisions. Doesn't hurt that he's got that shot either.

Defense looked very good, impressed with Ericsson in particular. Dekeyser was also good to see, he's picking up where he left off.

Offense looked great the first half, definitely sloppy and slow the 2nd half though. Hard to tell which is the real deal but maybe it's somewhere in between. What we saw was that Cleary, Bertuzzi and Samuelsson are definitely not as useless as some people around here say, but at the same time I definitely want to see one of them out of the lineup in favor of Tatar ASAP. Just add some speed and creativity in that bottom 6, I think against better teams than the Sabres we'll need it.

For a first game this was okay. Could have been much worse and showed a ton of promise. The thought of this team + Helm, Nyquist and Tatar... will be something when we finally see it.

Just wait until Leafs Nation shows up and embarrasses us further. Maybe it will wake them up, though.

Milbury just called Datsyuk amazing, like, six times in the span of two minutes.

I think a lot of that had to do with the penalties (at least three of which were terrible calls). We were gassed.

Zetty Dats Abby

Frazen Weiss Alfie

goose Helm Tatar

Miller Andy Tootoo

maybe later?

It seems a tad silly to slot in Tootoo for Bertuzzi or Cleary, both of whom played quite well.

mmmm true I guess Cleary Andy Bert/Miller wouldn 't be a terrible 4th line

I thought smith was good tonight. Didn't notice him

I think besides the assist on the goal he had the worst was Emdog taken that weak shot on the PS and causing a scary second Penelty to kill

I agree that adding helm, nyquist, and Tatar will make this team scary!

How in the EVAR LOVING f*** did Kyle Quincey get second star of the game?!

Whut?

Tell me someone photoshopped that ish.

I hereby demand that they hire people with eyes that see from here on out.

I mean, I can't even. Did these people watch the same game? If you want to give it to a d man, I thought Kronner and Big Rig had great games...but QUINCEY I CAN'T EVEN

ETA photographic proof:

Man, some of you are unbelievably negative.

They played pretty damned good tonight. The power play seemed flat? Just because they didn't score doesn't mean it was flat. That was some of the best PP looks I have seen from the Wings in some time, now. Alffy helps BIG time on the PP.

Our D was great as well. The one goal they scored was to a flub by Howie, which wasn't that really that bad anyway and in my opinion was more of a good play by the Buffalo player.

People already looking forward to getting big bert off the team? He was responsible for some of our best chances tonight.

I know Buffalo is weak but there were points when we were dominating with surgical precision that quite frankly brought back memories of the Russian 5 for me, especially on the PP. It seems some people just aren't satisfied unless it's a blow out.

Criticize, criticize, criticize. That is the MO here. It's quite ridiculous.
