That 2nd line is just a black hole off ass nobody can do anything on there

 

Alfredsson is good, but he has nothing to work with.

I don't think I've seen such a pitiful display of defense in a while. I mean everyone too. Not a single defenseman played well in this game. Glad Danny D scored and Howard was amazing, but nothing else really positive to take from this one. Why are we giving up so many shots in every game? Is our D that bad? 

It shouldn't be...but it is. Almqvist obviously is nowhere near being ready and it showed tonight. Quincey is less than worthless but he's not going anywhere. Ericsson would've helped. Kronwall is a good defenseman, but not a true #1.

Tatar was good.  You see his stick constantly scanning the ice for rebounds, etc.  He'll be a goal-scorer someday.

I thought Bert was good... he made a few chances, especially towards the third.

Kindl looked good from an offensive perspective -- saw a nice carry-in.  Didn't get to see him in the defensive zone much, but apparently he played bad.

Quincey was awful (always is), was glad not to see Smith play, Z and Dats seemed weighed down by the lackluster play of the team

Almquist looked pretty bad.  Does he get another shot?  How many shots should he get?

I miss gus so much right now.  This team needs somebody who can carry the damn puck from left to right.  Gus can do that.

Oh yeah I thought Weiss had a good game.  I think he's starting to feel more confident. 

I don't think there were any huge individual disappointments.  More so the team as a whole was awful.  Coaching problem?  I usually point the fingure at the coaching staff.  This damn team has NEVER been able to win games they should to keep streaks alive.  OF COURSE the Detroit Red Wings can't finish off the 4-game road sweep against a poor team.

Another game played without Nyquist. I wonder more if we'll ever see him again with every game he doesn't play up with this team this season.

The PK is the only thing that looked decent.

most shots we've given up all year(47)

 

and the game before was the fewest(14)

 

this team is inconsistent

 

sucks for Danny D to score his first goal in an embarassing game like this, makes it bitter-sweet

An unusually bad game for Z and Pavel. Another bad game following a good game the trend continues.

You can say that again. I'm patting my own butt for having to sit through this s*** show.

But...they'll get it together. They always do.

Y'know, I know how this is going to sound, but...maybe this whole trip - the wins, I mean - was just another "fool's gold" stretch. I say that because the Canucks played an uncharacteristically weak game and we won, barely. And the Flames probably should've won, but we won, barely. And the Oilers put in by far their weakest effort of this young season against us and we won. And the Jets came to play and embarrassed us.

 

What gets me about this loss is that everyone (except Babs, and Jimmy) can and probably will brush it off, given what an otherwise "great" road trip this was. "Everyone has an off-night. You can't win 'em all." blah blah blah

Winnipeg played one hell of a game.

This wasn't a case of a bad effort against a bad team, it was more like a kind of bad effort against a team playing like it was Game 7.

As long as we get back to winning in the next game I'm willing to let this one slide.

A loss is one thing. A loss to a struggling team is another. And playing like they did tonight is something else all together.

 

Terrible, terrible effort. Turnovers in the neutral zone without bodies back killed us. Seemed like every time they had the puck it was an odd-man rush.

I want to pin this loss on Nyquist not being with us. But, let's be honest: this loss was a true "team effort." I don't think we would've fared much better with Nyquist.

agreed. this team still has no identity. the D is a mess, it looks like we want them all to be the same type of player and that just can't work, and the same can sometimes be said of the forwards. Holland wants a bunch of jack-of-all-trades, master of none type guys, or at least that's how they're playing on most nights; I don't know, I'm tired and we suck

You mean the Quincey-lead penalty kill?? lol He lead with over 5:00 in PK.

 

datterberg1340 you're a hypocrite for "liking" that statement lol
