Normally with Mule I agree because he's such a drama queen, but those can hurt.  They already took Helm down with one earlier, and I don't think of Helm as someone who'd embellish like that.



Helm actually got slashed earlier. Franzens was a love tap...

Is anyone else convinced that Ottawa is playing us like this because of Alfie (despite the fact that he isn't playing)?

 

I don't know.  When you have a player like Neil there's really no reason for him not to.  The Wings have smallish forwards and no one to really make him answer for it.  So it's a pretty good strategy to run guys and get in the face of Zetterberg and Datsyuk whenever possible. 

 

As Mick mentioned earlier, they've factored in to 45% of the Wings goals.  Taking them off their game gives you a great chance of winning.

Maybe.  Helm's didn't look like much either but like I said, I've not seen Helm dive like that.

 

Franzen on the other hand...  you could be right.

though it's painful to watch, MacLean knows we don't respond well to all this rough and tumble, dirty play

 

so far it's working for them

 

we need to figure out a way to battle through it

 

Best way to deal with it is score more goals and win the game. Let Ottawa do the dirty stuff all night, 2 pts is more important. Smith showed the Wings aren't afraid. Kind of how the Ducks used to play us.

Makes you wonder how the Wings can't draw penalties all season when you see gang rape like that being let go consistently. Inevitably the Wings are going to get a call against them that'll make us all think "THAT?! What about this other dozen you let go in the 2nd?"

You should get used to this... Ottawa, Boston, Toronto, Philly

 

Boston is not cheap or dirty nor is Toronto

 

Philly can be cheap and dirty yes.

 

I fail to see your point?

Detroit is playing a helluva gusty game IMHO. Props to Smith- guys got heart.Sens are playing craptastic as usual and don't deserve the lead.

 

Maybe I'm crazy but  the Eastern conference  is so chippy compared to the West. That being said I hate to see Detroit skill players getting smashed and roughed up. That was my major concern about them making the switch to the East. Boston and Philly are no sweathearts either.

Our offense looks semi good, defense is questionable at best.
Chippy as hell, Ottawa slashing and haxking away at everyonr and anyone with the puck nowhere near, and smith fought Neil.
Not really a close fight.
Smith got one, maybe two good shots in on him.

Can't say I'm happy about that. At least the offense looks decent.

They are just physical and that's the point. Ask Habs fans how their playoffs have ended last year...

Once again, Holland gets the entirety of the blame for everything bad and none of the credit for anything good. This is a viewpoint divorced from reality.


Holland is getting the credit for his early success by still having his job. Any other gm would have lost theres by letting this team stale like he has done. And you can say he gets the credit for drafting but until those players are up actually producing in the league there is nothing to give credit for. If he really trusted his picks he wouldnt keep blocking them by signing useless plugs like Cleary and Quincey

Being a cheap and dirty team doesn't mean you are being a physical team.

 

Unless we in the 80's still??? No. 

 

Last year's Habs team got ouclassed and outplayed by a hot goalie in Anderson.

 

I still fail to see your point and I'm done with this convo.

 

Let's go Wings!!!
