I wish you would have added a close-up. I can't even tell who that is, is that dano?

You mean the guy who got lucky and was in the right place right time, screwed up the penalty shot, took a horrible penalty, and was just noticeably bad all game? Ya

Horrible penalty? He got delay of game for backhanding the puck from nearly the Red Wings crease into the penalty box. He was just trying to clear the zone.

I was extremely encouraged by last nights peformance. Thought we were solid in most facets.

 

To get a win while on a parade to the penalty box is a good accomplishment.  Normally the penalties would concern me, but most of them were just laughable

 

Cleary and Bert both showed well.  Still not impressed by Samuelson even with the goal... would much rather see Tatar and to be honest Nyquist belongs in the nhl

 

 

In a dream world we could roll

 

Zetterburg-Datsyuk-Abs

Franzen-Weiss-Alfie

Tatar-Helm-Nyquist

Cleary-Anderson-Bert

Now that lineup would be scary good. Maybe best forward group in the league

Penalties aside, the game was solid.  The team as a whole seemed to control the play at will for most of the night.  The biggest question mark I have is still the defense, but I was very satisfied last night.  Should've been a shutout if not for Howard waiting too long to move the puck behind is own net (not on the defense).

 

Sidenote: Pierre just freaks me out every time I see/hear him.  He never ceases to amaze me with the scary sh*t that comes out of his mouth.  He's obviously given himself a bad rep but he just throws logs on the fire (I.E. saying the space between the teams was "intimate").  Pierre, if you're known for being a f*cking weirdo, wouldn't you try to dial it down a bit?


It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Woot Woot, 1 down 81 more to go!  Nice game by the hometown boy's, Abby, Cleary, Bert, Miller and even Emmerton really played with speed and made good choices with and without the puck all game long.  The rest all played well obviously but these are the guys that can make the difference imo.  Wiess also stood out to a lot too, he's FAST as hell with the puck and that will be great once line 2 starts to gel (and they will).  The D looked great as well and Jimmy look alright himself.  Good job boys

Nice to see Franzen had four shots on the net.  Hopefully these guys are finally thinking about not passing so much.  We took 7 penalties in two periods, which is quite unusual, but we killed them all off.  That has to be good for our PK confidence.  

 

I'm spoiled by baseball where your team plays practically every day.  I always have to get used to the return of hockey when, next week for instance, you can have 4 days off between games.

What a game.  Lots of fun and I was effin pumped to watch it.  Glad the crowd came to play too.

 

I don't know much about Alfie, but man can that 40 year old skate and what a F****** ROCKET he has.  They just kept teeing him up and he was letting them fly.  This is going to be a fun year.

Haven't read through the gdt, but was anyone else impressed with Ericsson? I've never seen him so confident handling the puck!

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Ericsson was a beast.  He was jumping up in the play at the right time, showed lots of confidence, and used that towering frame of his.  He's got some snarl.  I hope he keeps it.

Great game.  Very happy, but it was Buffalo after all.  But I like our offense and how it's constantly attacking.  Weiss is way better than Flip, I saw him make plays and crash the net in ways Flip never would do.

 

Emmerton is just kind of...meh.  I understand he's a center, but I'm very annoyed he's in over Tatar.  

 

Defense I'm not sure of.  They really weren't challenged at all, but I didn't see anything egregiously bad. Kronwall looks like he's returned to form and was instrumental in a lot of plays.

 

Alfredsson looked great, too.  Seeing Datsyuk and Zetterberg dominate together was a great thing to see, too.  It's going to be a good year, I think.

Really impressive game, looked like we carried on from where we left off last season - skating hard, solid defensively, crashing the net, Howard looking good.

 

Only one game, and it was only Buffalo, but I'm liking what I'm seeing.  And Tatar and Nyquist are doing a great job right now - of lighting a fire under Sammy, Bert, Cleary and Emmertons asses.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Tatar is also a center, it's not his fault he was scratched, sure he plays wing but he is a center

Emmerton did not impress me, especially on the penalty shot, looked like he didn't even want to score.

Unless Abdelkader is demoted, there's nobody else to play center on the 4th line.

 

Helm will supposedly be back in ten days. One can only hope.

Don't hold your breath on Helm coming back so soon, guys.  We've been down this road before.

Helm back in ten days? That would be a miracle, literally. I mean, unless we're ok with him at 15-20%....

Were they broadcasting the same Wings game that I was in the seats watching? I have a 20 ticket package and I go to all 20 a year. I've been to games in the past where they can warrant someone talking about empty seats, but tonight was not one of them. 

 

Is there any other poster here who was at the game that can backup this comment? People left early, yeah it happens but to try and make it sound like there were a lot of empty seats is just strange. It was a pretty packed arena.

 

As for the play, I'm happy with what I saw. They slowed down a bit towards the end, but it's only the first game of the season and once the boys get their legs going again, we'll see improvements. Miller played very good for the Sabers to keep it at such a low score. 

 

I can back you up on that. The Joe looked full to me as well being there, expect for the obvious times at the start of periods where people are still filing back to their seats. However, I will say I was slightly embarrassed with how many fans left with ten minutes or less to go in the game. It was 2-0 and then 2-1, yet even with just a couple minutes left there was a massive exiting taking place. I know leaving the arena isn't exactly a pleasure, but your team is up one goal in their home opener. You probably paid decent money for the tickets, so why leave then? 

 

As for the game itself, I thought the Wings looked really good. Spent way too much time killing penalties, but I thought some of the calls were very questionable from what I could tell and not having the benefit of replay. Weiss and Alfredsson are going to be huge additions for this season. The second line looked dangerous, even without scoring a goal. Not crazy about the third line, but they were better than I anticipated. Andersson is so solid defensively and a huge reason why the PK was perfect. On defense, Kronwall and Ericsson both played very well.

 

I think it's fairly obvious the Sabres aren't a good measuring stick, but I still liked the Red Wings performance having to spend a nice chunk of the first two periods short-handed. Thought they let up in the third some, though Buffalo didn't generate much offensively. 

 

Fun start to the new season! Looking forward to some 7 PM road starts now this weekend.

We were flying when the D would be aggressive and join the play as soon as they stopped the game got dull. Ericsson deserved an assist on datsyuks goal

I was there last night and many times before. It can be awful, but that's embarrassing to leave a one-goal game in your team's home opener. Are you really saving that much time and why go to the game at all if you are that concerned with getting home?

I'm not trying to tell people how to spend their money, but I think the Red Wings deserve better. Stay and support your team for 60 minutes. If it's 5-0, then I understand. Quite honestly, if you stay away from the parking garage, it's not all that bad. Sure, the concourse is crowded, but I stayed until the end last night and was in my car within ten minutes.
