You guys talk like we are in the cellar. We're competing for first in our division, and over a whole season we can still compete for first overall.


Babcock's coaching continues to confuse me. He always puts the wrong guys out to finish periods and games, hence the plethora of last minute goals.

Anyone know if Tatar got a shift in ot. I cant remember off the top of my head but I dont believe he did. If not thats a huge mistake by Babcock. Hes the type of player that can beat a man and create that winning goal. Youve already got your point so go hard for the second. Instead he keeps sending Bert out for example whom in my opinion in 4v4 is a liability.

I was at the game last night..  My third game this season and witnessed my third loss.

We are 3-2-3 at home..  What the heck guys?

They are 6-3 on the road.

We have a lot of home games this month..  Gotta turn it around!

The difference is Sammy was signed in 2012 when there was ample roster and cap space.  Cleary was signed when we were already over the cap, over the roster limit and knowing his skills were seriously diminished.[/quote]
Signing sammy with cap space makes it even worse since there were other better players available.

It is so frustrating to have a mediocre team.   

 

Does anyone know how we're doing compared to last year at this stage.  Just wondering if we'll have to win the last 8 games of the season to make it into the playoffs again. 

 

2012-13 thru 17 games: 7-7-3 17 pts

2013-14 thru 17 games 9-5-3 21 pts

2012-13 thru 17 games: 8 games vs. Western non-playoff teams, 9 vs. Western playoff teams (All games vs. Western Conference last year)

2013-14 thru 17 games: 8 games vs. Eastern Conference, 9 vs. Western Conference

 

Let's throw in 2011-12 too thru 17 games:  9-7-1 19 pts (Split was 2 East vs. 15 West)

 

And goal differential too while we're at it:

 

2011-12: +5

2012-13: -7

2013-14: -2

Babs needs to give his head a shake after last night. Sammy needs to not play, especially not with Z and D at any point. Cleary needs to be dropped down the line-up, he's killing Weiss and Alfredsson. Quincey needs to play less, he had a couple bad turnovers (one lead to a goal and he should've been called for tripping on it anyway) and Peverly was his guy in OT that he was late getting too. It'll be nice when Ericsson gets back to take some minutes, and I'd take just about anybody to play 4th line RW over Sammy.

Sorry didn't see it lol. So we are doing better than last year and the previous year thus far. So everyone losing their cools are somewhat unjustified at this point. Sure we have had trouble holding a lead, but I think that will change as time goes on. When big rig comes back this team will be much better on the back end.

Real, die hard Wings fans that despite the fact that they're not as good as some hoped, still have at least something positive to say about the team they love.  Not just one line posts saying how terrible you think they are with every keystroke while never saying anything good about the team you claim to be a fan of, if you truly are a Wings fan.  Yet to be seen...

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

If the DetroitRedWings are losing the next game too, I guess the identity so far could be summarized as streaky, win some lose some repeat.

Streaky, yes.  But this team IS better than last season.  The question is: are they improved enough?

 

I think they can be, but boy, Babcock needs to stop blowing who is on the ice at crucial times, and we have to get the lineup in order.  And still, we'll probably need an acquisition at the trade deadline on defense.  Not that we'll get one, though, the trading season seems to have died the last few years.

refusing to pay money to see a team that puts nyquist in the minors so they can re-sign garbage like dan cleary means you're not a "true wings fan"?

 

so be it.

Beating them would be sufficient seeing as they are on top of our division - they are not a useless team.

I called them the Detroit BiPolars last season, I see no reason to change that this season.

 

The team that completely soiled the bedding against Ottawa and Winnipeg, is exactly the same team that won in Boston, shut-out the Sharks and gave Colorado their first defeat.

 

We have enough high end talent to win games, but not enough mid-level talent to carry us through on the nights when the big guns can't.


"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

Exactly. They're defenseman are HUGE. Three guys are 6'6" or taller and two other guys that are 6'4" and others are well over 6'. They're offense is nothing to sneeze at either, they have a guy that's pretty good at scoring goals if I remember correctly. If we play well we can definitely beat them but it's not like they're the Panthers.
