I don't even remember what it feels like to see my team win a game. Does anyone else remember that feeling?

This is brutal. I miss the way they played those 3 games against Chicago in the playoffs last year

Is it time to get rid of Babcock? Seriously asking here, I mean, I like the guy and everything he has done for us. However, this has been bad for awhile now. Should we wait till after the trade deadline? Do it now? Just go with him for the rest of the year?

 

I wouldn't mind, but many homer posters would ask, "Who would you replace him with that's won more Cups"  (as if we could just hire Al Arbour or Glen Sather).

This team reminds me of the 2nd Major League movie, when the fan kept saying "they'll blow it in the ninth." They just can't hold a f***ing lead.

Reading these comments, you'd think that the Wings weren't tied for third overall in the East.

 

Seriously, people... this isn't a catastrophe.

Except they didn't blow this game.  They hung on for dear life to get a point.  

 

Last night's game is a different story, however.

Sadly I'd rank us around 20th in the league as of now. TSN had us there before maybe now don't know but yeah that's where we are about at and it hurts. Dang

2 Things:

 

1. If you don't want to play good enough to win in reg then we better find someone who can score in a shootout.  Tatar?   Helm? Is Kocur around? Terrible

 

2. When our d decide to play like they did down the stretch and in the playoffs last year this team will improve instantly.  We have made it so difficult to get out of our own end its frustrating..we don't have Lidstrom's and Rafalski's back there to finesse the puck out of our end anymore...get it out easy and go from there.  We pass the puck backwards in our own end 4 times and then turn it over...teams know this and just pressure the s*** out of us. 

 

As bad as we've been and we've been bad lately these points will be important down the road.

If Cleary, Sammy and Bert weren't around, people would at least feel that Babcock and Holland were icing the best roster they had available.

Detroit baseball fans can relate to this..it reminds me of when a baseball team brings in it's closer and you just know he's going to blow the save before the first pitch is thrown.

I have a novel idea: Win a damn game in regulation since clearly OT and the shootout aren't going to end in two points.

I feel bad for Z and Pavel. They have to be so frustrated with the lack of help from the supporting cast. Helm has looked terrific at least, but the forwards overall are weak, particularly the bottom-six. Defense desperately needs a puck-mover that can play big minutes and contribute offensively because Quincey and Kindl have been atrocious.

Something has to happen. You can't just keep repeating "we are close to turning things around" after every loss. They may break out of this streak soon, but long-term the resounding issues of this team aren't going away.

Yo Babs..please stop putting Bertuzzi out on SO's

 

Yeah because he's been so much worse than our other shooters this season.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

We were looking much worse last season. Right now we're still in a playoffspot and we don't play terrible hockey. If the Wings are able to fix the problems reagrding transition and passing we're good. And we all know that SOs are not only a matter of skill but also of luck. Sometimes it's just  that little bit of luck thats missing.

I don't even know what to say. I have homered my way through all of these losses but there is just no excuse for some of the decisions that are being made. Spare me the "we're too old, we like our team, so-and-so Suckypants is our deadline acquisition" snark--I still believe that *this* team CAN win. They've shown solid periods of play and utter control at times. Why they can't seem to get out of their own heads is BEYOND ME.

I typed up a whole second part to this post, but it felt like a eulogy so I deleted it. Whatever. If this is everything returning to dust, then so be it.

LGW.

Last night's game is a different story, however.  

They did blow it, after having a 2-1 and a 3-2 lead. They played like crap in the third and Pav's goal was a miracle. Its been 5 straight games of the same garbage. The team is good enough to tie but not win right now.
