He certainly wasn't Bertuzzi-invisible, but we all know what a factor he usually is. And he wasn't this game. I don't blame him, it must be pretty hard to play his kind game on a snowy surface. 

 

I guess we just agree to disagree. The one thing we do agree on was Bert was horrendous. My wife made the comment that it looked like he was skating against the wing whichever way he was going.

Anyone know what the worst shootout record for a season is?  Do we have it already?  If not, how close are we to it?

Both Toronto goals today were due to that last effort players are taking to score. We do not have players willing to do that and we lost. 


Bozak throwing his stick up and having a point shot hit it is extra effort, but Abby driving the net hard to tie the game isn't?

The Red Wings loss today had nothing to do with compete level. That was the best 60 minute performance they have put together in awhile.

Bertuzzi is too old.  That's another one of Holland and Babcock's faults, keeping him around too long.    


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Right?  And Eaves did not return so we played a forward short all game.  Advantage Leafs.

 

esteef

and I'm sure we won't hear one word about a possible fine and/or suspension, either- same thing when Gudas hit Franzen in the face, not a single thing done about it by the league

 

at this point they should allow us to dress an extra skater each game since we're dropping like flies every 5 minutes

Leafs did not deserve to be rewarded with the win today.  Hope the league suspends Lupul.

 

And I hope Eaves is not lost for the rest of the season with concussion symptoms.  Lupul knew he was vulnerable.  Crass behavior from a player who should be above that.

 

Boo.

so we have Abby and then what? Bertuzzi? Datsyuk? Zetterberg? Cleary? All of them are giving their best but cannot be compared with half of Toronto roster. Well, evenf****** Raymond drives the net.. And in todays NHL more than 50% of goals are scored that way.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

^ Yeah that's pretty viscous actually. I'm sure a suspension is coming.
 
Maybe they'll talk about it on the last episode of 24/7.

And yeah after each and every loss we have someone to complain but not us. Jimmy sucked big time vs Nashville. He sucked today as well. But this clown will start next time anyway. Today it was Bernier who was a problem, Last game it was not-perfect-execution (in a game lost 4:6). Next game vs Dallas it will be thatf****** Russian junior Nichushkin who will suddently get his gamee going. Or Benn just dominating.

Yeah thats not true at all. The correct thing to say was he sucked in the shootout. The first 65 minutes he was strong.

Sucking in a askills competition is what it is, anyway Holland wanted answers so far he has gotten a lot of them so hopefuly the off-season marks a huge turnaround for this roster. It is needed.

 

The arena and crowd was absolutely spectacular and for mer personally the Winterclassic this year is done, it will be extremely hard to top this next year.

Am I the only one pleased with this game?  Yes, a win would have been optimal, but the only thing that would have made it better would have been being there.  The Wings played a great game, and so did the Leafs.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  The crowd was great, it was good hockey going back to its roots.  Even the officiating for the most part was good.  Whether the whistles were swallowed or frozen, no matter.  They played.  The game rocked.  

The shootout must die, but I have yet to watch a single shootout.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Good game ... too bad we came up short on the shootout but compete level was there.  A great classic!

Are people really bashing Howard? He was Detroit's MVP for sure... made a bunch of good saves and didn't have much of a chance on either goal

I'm not saying I'm not pleased with the game, I'm just saying overall Holland is getting more and more answers which is a good thing. The shootout is and always was a skills competition so it can go either way,

 

Conditions like this are just another statement on how good these guys are, I think I would have had a hard time seeing the puck.

We lost but played good hockey. You can't make 3 big mistakes in a shootout and expect to stay in it.

he pooped himself in the shootout. the winning goal was a flubbed shot and it still went in so pretty much anything directed at the goal was going to go in. i just have no sympathy for howard after that nashville game. gus has been the better goalie all year no reason why howard deserves to be in the net.

Well you can blame Holland his other GM cronies for the shoot out.  Happy with that decision now Holland?

I know that was the most asinine thing they've come up with so far.  Get a clue NHL.  Ran by a bunch off****** morons.
