wow this game is laughable

if we had our 'big 3' available, it'd probably be a different story, but as others have pointed out, the defense is simply not good enough

and, like many others have pointed out, Quincey is the weakest link on this defense; despite his sub-par play he still gets top-4 minutes and seems to drag down whoever he's paired with

if we could #1-get healthy, #2- jettison Quincey and #3- somehow acquire a top d-man, we'd be a formidable squad

the only problems are #1- we can't get healthy, #2- won't get rid of Quincey 'til the off season, and #3- it's really hard to acquire a top d-man

Meh you used my own post against me and made me realize just how silly my hopes were lolz.

Touché.

No worries. You're one of my favorite LGWers.

Didn't expect to compete tonight, you can't win on a regular basis with your top 3 out, Weiss (I know he didn't produce but he is still better then done others out there and then no Howard. Blame it on no heart and no drive, or we need to trade this guy or that guy but face it.... We were completely over matched, out gunned and depleted. It's not a cop out when it's the truth.

He's not coming back till the Olympics...I hate to call a player selfish, but you have to wonder why what was supposed to be a 1 game absence has turned into 11 after tonight

Couldn't buy a bounce tonight, it happens. Glendening is a point per game player in the AHL and can't buy his 1st goal in the NHL and then kinda scores on our own net.

Hope Abs is ok.

Can't complain about offense with the big guns missing,but both Kronwall and E have played like they're in Sochi already which is absolutely unacceptable

All of our chances - all of our chances - blah, blah, blah, game after game, yet no goals.

Missed chances = choker = loser.

And with tonight's shut out, this team officially becomes an embarrassment to Red Wing hockey. Even the Dead Wings never managed to be shut out 3 road games in a row.

Add to that the fact that Philly felt they had something to prove, and it's absolutely, positively no surprise that we got blown out tonight.

My anger lies with the injuries. It has to stop.

If it makes anyone on here feel any better, the Jets just got 2 quick goals against the Preds to tie the game at 3 and then Weber got away with some usual gooning and the Jets are likely gonna take exception against him in the 3rd. I'd love to see Thorburn level him.

Back to the Wings game. These nights happen. Sometimes you get the bounces, sometimes they all go against you. You replace Andersson and Cleary with Dats and Z, and a few of those bounces may go our way. Watch next game we win 6-0 against the Caps and everyone gets their erection/lady wood back and we all rejoice together. Let's just stop the BS trade Dats talk. Save s*** talk like that for Penguins and Cansucks fans.

Montreal, Ottawa, Washington, Toronto are winning *sigh*

I hope Peluso and Thorburn are going to destroy Mr. spotpicker Weber

Wow....I'm actually out of vomit. I didn't know that was possible. Way to go boys!

Well at least you're comical in the loss. Good to keep your sense of humour.

Even a good shutdown rental I mentioned before like Mark Stuart or Brad Ference. They would both fit very well here.

the worst part of it is that the Flyers aren't a very good side. One crap call in the first and our inability to kill off the penalty set the tone of the game.

How the hell they can call DeK for a cross check and then nothing for Grossmans boarding of Abby just about sums up what is wrong with the officiating in the NHL today. Don't get me wrong, you don't score you aint winning but it did flatter Philly.

Absolutely they do. It shows that you're pissed off that the guys you're playing are kicking your ass all over the rink and on the score board. The Wings lose like a bunch of wimps, they take it lying down. It doesn't hurt anything to show some goddamn moxie and be pissed off that you're losing an important game to a conference rival that is going to take an important 2 points from you. And I'm sure someone will say "Well they should be focused on scoring goals... not starting scrums/fights" Well, clearly they aren't doing a good job at the whole scoring goals thing, so do something! Don't roll over and die like they do.

....except that the only guys they should really be upset with are the ones wearing the same color jersey.

Scrum/fight because of some dirty play or something happens? Sure, stand up for your team mate. Respectable.

Scrum/fight because you're getting beat because the other team is better at playing hockey than you are? No. That makes you the kid that throws the chess board because he can't figure out how to win. Not Respectable.

You call tonight 'losing like wimps'.... and then you suggest losing like whining children.

Now we get to hear Babs get grilled with hardball questions by John Keating. Instead of asking him why the Wings PP doesn't have a clue, Keating will ask one of his patented "how" questions - "How big a loss is this tonight?" Keating is as big a loser as the team he covers.

Yeah they had a very rough night. They'll bounce back. The best thing about playoffs is that when you make them, it's a 7 game series. You can drop a stinker 1 night and then win 4 straight to dispatch your opponent. Once this team gets healthy, if we can keep up guys like Sheahan and Glendening, we'll push hard for a spot. Kronwall's been the Z on the back end this season, he's gotta be tired by now.
