I hate to say it but Pavel's struggled a bit on draws so far, after tonight he's under 50% on the year

 

actually none of our centers have been very good at draws so far

I don't know why Z doesn't take more of the draws on that line. Pav is definitely struggling a bit in that regard.

Also, our fourth line looked really good. I want Tootoo to stay.

I think we did OK tonight.  Got killed in 1st and 2nd but came back strong in 3rd.  What happened to our shooters ... no deke, no style.

Good 3rd Period.

 

I don't know how you take Tatar out of the lineup.

 

Defense stepped up big without Kronner and E.

 

Best game I have seen Smith play... wow

Was at the game tonight and I was impressed with the team's resolve despite not having its top 2 Dmen playing. 

 

A few notes:

- Datsyuk and Zetterberg (especially Hank) were off a bit tonight. I also was not please with Abby's play back on their line... I truly think they benefit more by having Bert with them

- Franzen is such a lazy player its sickening. In OT he actually went off the ice despite the fact that the sharks would have ended up with a 3 on 0 had they not went offside

- Kindl is a turnover machine still. He has so much time, and then he just turns the puck over. He had at least 3 awful turnovers that almost led to goals.

- Oulett had a good first game, was very solid

- the 4th line was very good... Tootoo provides so much energy. Babs needs to continue to play him.

Smith was fantastic tonight. He was our best puck mover, made solid decisions, and was very good on the D side of the puck as well

 

Now, the one thing that is apparent to me is that Babcock's use of lines is clearly awful. The lines just do not mesh besides Pavs and Hank. Weiss would benefit sooooooo much from skating with Tatar and Nyquist (because all 3 are fast and Weiss is a north/south speedy centerman). Kenny needs to do something to allow Nyqust to play up.

 

Zetty-Pavs-Bert

Nyquist-Weiss-Tatar

Franzen-Anderson-Alfie

Miller-Helm-Abby/Cleary/Tootoo

 

Imagine that. Overall though, I am happy with the Wings getting 1 point and look forward to Kronners being back.

Tatar and Tootoo  were noticeable out there, in a positive way

Couture has to be the ugliest hockey player to ever play

Still, with that line-up, against that team, I'll take a shut-out and a point.


"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

ok this type of loss was probably what nobody expected in a good way but the lack of scoring is becoming worrisome. The more Babcock shuffles, the less they score

 

Dare I say it.....I miss Brunner in view of Weiss and his 5 million

 


My wish: A healthy roster

Staying up until my FFB waiver wire opens up. My parents gave me an incredible seat for my BD (thanks Mom & Dad). I'm happy that the Wings got a point tonight considering that the #1 D pairing was out.

 

That was probably one of the most boring games I have ever been to. Add to that a very drunk lady sitting next to me who first accused me of taking her seat (it was a single seat that apparently is vacant most of the time and she used it to store her purse) and then did the 21 questions thing,; as well as the idiot sitting behind me who was telling his buddies useless hockey facts and rules and trying to commentate the game at the same time.. and YES I resisted the thought of turning around and telling the guy to just shut up.

 

Such a shame that such awesome seats are consumed by people that don't have an ounce of hockey knowledge.

What is the story behind that pic? I've seen it so many times, and I've never thought to ask. Was he seriously just licking his stick? Or is it doctored? Gah, I hate the Penguins.

Our offense starts with our defense. We've missed Kronwall the last couple of games, and Kronwall AND Ericsson in this game (against arguably the most imposing team in the league). And, overall, I think our D has been kinda off thus far. Like I've said (WARNING: dead horse ahead), we're missing a top defenseman with an excellent first pass. Hopefully 1) we get him, and whether we do or not, 2) the rest of our blue liners get more comfortable.

 

Not saying we couldn't use a Vanek. But between Alfie being awesome, Weiss still having potential (the guy just needs more time), Helm coming back, Abby becoming a top-six player (if only out of necessity), and Tatar and Nyqist stepping up...I don't think we can realistically expect any significant additions up front this season. (And, unfortunately, the same is probably true re: our blue line.)

Babs on Tatar's performance:
 

“I thought he was really good,” coach Mike Babcock said after the 1-0 shoot-out loss. “He was effective for us, he was on the puck, he was strong on the puck, he played way quicker than he did his last time. I thought he was effective.”

I'm still convinced that Logan Couture and the bent tooth kid from the Slytherin Quiddich team are the same person.  I've said it before and I stand by it.

Babs didn't criticize any aspect of Tatar I don't think. He's got to have earned a spot now, which will help our offense.

I think part of the disappearing offense was the focus on defense. Clearly they went into that game with a focus on playing not to lose. They were simply cautious I bet, so they could support the defense.

Well this is s***ty news if true  - http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/darren_dreger/?id=434695. Lose Tootoo, call up Nyquist, reclaim throne as softest team in the league. Meanwhile, Cleary and Samuelsson win the lottery as useless signings that cost millions.
