I'm hoping this is just precautionary league protocol stuff like Holland is saying and not something seriously long-term. I keep thinking back to how the Hedman and Steckel hits on Crosby looked at the time.

 

I'm also wishing really bad things on Cowen. Not very classy I know. But f*** him. The big slow-footed dummy couldn't keep up with Datsyuk and instead of falling down like Couture, decided an elbow to the face was a good idea.

I think you mean you want Spezza or Ryan to try to move out of a hit, this allows any player to through fists, elbows, sticks, it doesn't matter so long as the other person didn't want to be hit it is there fault. 


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

Howard is so bad at tracking the puck. If he just took away the bottom of the net when there's a scrum in front of him he would have allowed like 8 less goals this season.

And his reading the play is off he has tunnel vision to the puck like if there's a odd man rush if the pass gets made there's usually a wide open net to shoot at

his positioning this year has been a complete joke. He looks lost out there some nights.

I agree that Howard has not been very solid this year overall.

 

However, it seems like I am the only one who thinks Monster has looked pretty poor too? He got wins and made some huge stops, but a lot of the time he had NO idea where the puck was, was having a lot of trouble tracking the puck, handling the puck, and at times looked just plain scared.

 

Glad that I'm in the minority, because it probably means I'm just wrong.  :bye:

WOW, I've been busy lately and missed last game and haven't had time til now to catch up, but had that hit happened to say Crosby.....there would have been serious repercussions.  I REALLY hate the way the NHL operates now days.  What happened to zero tolerance on headshots?  that was as blatantly purposeful as it gets.  Not to mention the cross check to his back seconds before.  SMGDH...i just....I'm about done with this joke of a league.


Lets go RED WINGS!!!

I've seen the same thing.

 

Lucky for Gus, being a good goalie doesn't always mean sound fundamentals, and when Gustavson gets lost, the puck is still finding ways to hit him or a nearby Red Wing.  Unfortunately Jimmy hasn't been so lucky.

He comes way out to cut the angles down which is great if he is steering pucks into the corners..if he's not and rebounds are dropping down in front of him and our d are standing around it's going to end up in the net more times than not.

With Pavel out this team looks even more pedestrian. If he doesn't return soon, we will be in serious trouble.

Monster is getting the job done, Jimmy isn't. I think that's the bottom line. Doesn't mean Jimmy isn't the better goalie, doesn't mean Jimmy isn't our true #1. Jimmy's just having a rough go of it this season, so Babs is playing the "hot hand," the guy who's getting it done, even if he does kinda suck and even if he is getting lucky. Message sent to Jimmy? Maybe, but I don't think that's really the point.

I decided to look back at the shift that in which Pasha was hurt in. A clear cross check, followed by a slash, and followed by the deliberate elbow to the head in the same shift. Every Wings fan needs to remember that when the Wings play a team from Canada, well we should know that by now.

 

It's not going to be a nice game when the Bruins know that they can get away with any cheap shot or illegal hit and they won't be called for it because there is absolutely not one Wing that can stand up to them.

I just keep telling myself this is a good thing, in the big picture. We need, need, need guys not named Datsyuk or Zetterberg to step up, and now all of them have to, because Datsyuk is that important to the team.

 

If we can beat the Bruins without Datsyuk's help, that's huge for us.

TBH, if I'm Paul McClean, I'm probably not at all happy with "the incident." He knows the Wings. He knows we only have one response to that kind of thing, and it's winning.


Same with Julien, I imagine.

It's official, the league has it out for our stars. First Shea with the hulk smash on z only gets him a fine, now cowen chicken wings pasha, and gets absolutely no punishment

Y'know, anything short of a Lemieux-on-Draper and I think I'm gonna have a hard time really hating the Bruins. The more I watch them and read about them, the more they remind me of the Wings when they were the class of the West. This is a really, really good team that doesn't f*** around.

Really very strange why not.   The more we all see it the more it is more then obvious that it is the complete definition of elbow to the head with intent to injure...You do not elbow someone right in the face and think aw he'll be fine, guys a goon he first cross checked dats, then elbowed his chin & then at the end runs at Smith from behind, he moved and Cowen smashed into the boards, but watch it again I swear he was running him into the glass from behind.

Optional skate for Wings. Datsyuk and Bertuzzi are skating. Neither is playing tonight, however.

 

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 2m

Datsyuk left the ice. Wasn't out there long, maybe 10 minutes.
