I think a big part of the Wings' scoring woes is they're having such a hard time getting out of their own zone. They don't seem to have set exit plays and the defensive corps is too inexperienced to just wing it all the time.
As a result the forwards are spending a lot of their shifts in their own end trying to retrieve pucks.
a lot of pucks are off the glass and out, which is fine but you sacrifice puck possession.
forwards have been allowing a lot of point shots and players to walk right in.
centers havent been taking their guy out of the play.
also not a good sign when your defense look afraid to get hit by a fore checker. forget who it was, wasnt dekeyser or kronwall but they looked awfully afraid to get hit.
i just cant wait for next year where we dont have bert cleary or sams on the team anymore and if we do holland needs to be let go
