Years from now, when I'm a drunken hobo living on the streets, I'm gonna see someone I used to know, before I was a drunken hobo living on the streets.

 

And that someone is gonna say to me:

 

"Holy s***! I know you! What the hell happened to you, man?!"

 

And I'll look him in the eyes.

And I'll say one word:

 

"Howard."

 

And then I'll die.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Why in the world did they use Franzen for a shootout, he had no glue

Well, you could look at these results as growing pains.  And also realize that the Wings, even with their troubles, have not been that far off from a stellar record.  There are a lot of inexperienced guys on thisroster, and inexperienced guys struggle to play under pressure (aka close tight games).  There's a lot of little things missing from this team (Alfie tonight, Nyquist, accountability from the vets, rediuclous line juggling by Babs, disorganized player management by Kenny, etc.) If a few things are corrected (Babs sticks with solid pairings, a vet or two steps up, Nyquist comes...) then that might be enough to push the team over the OT loss hump such that they could start converting these games into two point wins.  I don't think the current situation is as grim as it seemed last year when it looked like we wouldn't make the playoffs. Shouldn't this team be "better" than the team last year?  Why wouldn't they be?  But yeah, I am aghast at the horrible defense by Quincey/Smith, the nonsensical management and coaching, and the lack of overall team effort on most nights.  To me things are both horrible and not so horrible at the same time.

Not sure what he does anymore, really. 

 

He's not even at a level of an appendix in which it's useful at some point but then a lot of times you just gotta take it out.

The biggest concern is that we keep blowing two-goal leads, losing games that we're controlling and should win. And that the f***-ups are happening late in periods and games and even in shoot-outs.

 

Where's our vaunted Veteran Leadership?

They decided to film a steaming pile of feces instead of the Red Wings, figuring no one would know the difference. They'll cut in some parts of Babcock staring and Cleary falling over and it's gonna be great.

So glad I got realdrunk instead of watching another realgood performance by this team.

BLARGH!

So many whiners in here.  No this isnt the worst team in the last 25 years, no this team doesnt "suck".  They might "suck" in shootouts but who cares?  4th in the East and havnt lost in regulation in a while.

 

They need everyone healthy at once and we'll see whats up.

 

Also, no Grand Rapids would not beat the Red Wings.

Thought : Sit Jimmy for the next shootout. Put in the guy on the bench, in this day and age you need to be good at shootouts. Just have him practice shootout goals all day at practice. I don't know, it would certainly be dramatic. Gotta try something, right?

And maybe sign a few players who are good at shootouts? Not the same old re-treads. It's a sickening feeling to be not getting any of these points.

They are sucking. Bottom line, they're playing terrible right now. You can argue all you want, but all that does is convince me that you haven't actually been watching the games.  We were all healthy outside of Helm, and just Helm doesn't solve the problems that we have. We have too many old players, we have too many floaters.  Players need to be held accountable or I don't see any of it changing. We need to bring up the young talent. Get Nyquist up here, bench players like Cleary, Sammy, and Franzen when they float or don't contribute.  Their play is nothing short of pathetic.
