Are they really going to struggle this bad to score goals all season? First game was basically the same story, but Buffalo is just that bad.

Well, anybody remember the first game of last season?  We've got a lot to figure out, but I'm not too worried right yet.  That said, we need to straighten out the bottom six and probably get a grip on these penalties sooner rather than later.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Well this game is incredibly dull.

Tatar in the lineup tomorrow, please. Take your pick between Cleary, Bert and Sammy as to who gets benched.

3rd period comeback is up to Z and D, they're the only ones who came to play.

Struggled to score goals last season, haven't scored in four periods now, but let's not play two highly skilled young guys.

It's mind boggling, really. The Red Wings could use some speed and offense in the bottom-six because this current group provides neither.

Pretty lethargic, just like they did periods 2 and 3 against buffalo. I hope they dont show up like this against boston, or they will get spanked.

 

I almost hope we do get spanked. Anything to wake these bums up.

Ya and inser Tatar. God it's frustrating watching cleary, Bert, Sammy, emmerton


They haven't been setting the world on fire but I'm more concerned about the non-existent 2nd line. As much as I'm not a fan of Bert, Sammy, Emmerton, they've at least generated a few chances.

We can't win if we don't score goals.  So, how about we do that instead of whatever it is we've been doing all night?

You are so bang on! It's actually laughable and embarrassing that Tatar and nyquist aren't in the lineup.

i no longer think abs is any help on the first line. he doesnt help

if the struggles to score keeps up might have to break up dats and Z

Wow, Griffins leading 6-1. Sproul with two goals already. Nyquist with one goal and two assists.

I can't believe that two veterans like Pavel and Hank don't have enough pull on the team to ask Babcock to make a change there.  They shouldn't have to play with "hammer hands Abby" on their line.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I cannot believe Cleary is on the PP...

 

Sammy has to sit for Tatar tomorrow.

They have no identity, especially on the 4th line.
 
Someone should explain to Babcock and Holland that the 4th line should be a checking/energy line, preferably with bigger forwards and good checkers.  Not a line where you just put a bunch of scrubs who don't fit onto the other lines or together.  It's been this way for years.

agreed, no speed, not much physical presence and no energy. It is 2013, not 2003.
