I did start it by mentioning Beavis in a Wings shirt to set you up for the epic PP goal for my bunghole quote, which Mabus promptly put into the awesome pic. I'll blame the Macallan for this one since I forced myself to not post during the game. ;). Mabus does have the awesome photoshop skills. I'm sure Nyquist onto the Goose is my Wingman graphic is out there somewhere as well.


This is exactly what I mean! Before the end of the season, we will have a complete episode of Beavis and Butthead starring all Wings players complete with music videos (I'm thinking something by Justin Bieber, Prong, and Eddie Murphy's classic "Party All the Time") and will end up getting sued by Mike Judge!

And it will be magical.

Blue Jackets lead the Ducks 2-0 after two. This can't be real life.

Someone should make a GIF of Ericsson saying, "Are you f****** kidding me?!" (re: the late coincidental Kesler call).

Huge win so happy for the monster. Sweden is set in goal now with Lundquist and Monster playing great.

 

Hamhuis would look nice in Red and White but the price maybe to steep :(

Unfortunately Monster left the game during first intermission with injury, I hope it doesn't damage his change his path to the Olympics at all and it was something minor. It was a great combined effort from the two tonight.

So the dizziness things kinda scary.

Damn :( aren't both getting the SO since neither allowed a goal? Nice to see our goaltenders doing well.

 

Gus has had some sort of heart problems, when he came over hopefully that's behind him, dizziness is scary hopefully he can get well soon.

I think the way it works is that the team gets credit for a shutout but neither goalie does.

 

Howard gets the W though because he was in net when Abdelkader scored to make it 1-0

oh ok thanks for clearing that up.

And does everyone agree Lashoff needs to stay in as our #6 dman? I like the idea of Kindl sitting most of the time with Smith sitting out when he s***s the bed

I personally get dizzy sometimes and it's nothing to worry about. I hope that's the case with monster as well. Hopefully he just didn't get enough iron or something

 I like the idea of Kindl sitting most of the time with Smith Quincey sitting out when he s***s the bed.

 

Fixed that for you ;)

Yeah, Lashoff needs to play. He may actually be our least mistake-prone d-man. And we need that, someone who doesn't mess up. 

 

Right now I think Kindl and Smith should be alternating pretty much. I like Smith better because he can provide offense, but he may need the occasional sit down to clear his head after he's had a braindead game like against Washington.

Though it pains me to say it, we don't have any better options. I mean, he shouldn't be getting the minutes he's getting, but, beyond our top three, who else is significantly better in a top-four role? Smith? Kindl? Lashoff?


None are desirable, but I would say Smith if he's paired with Kronwall. Smith played his most composed and confident hockey when E was out. Smith just isn't going to work getting stuck with the likes of Quincey or Kindl. He needs someone that can cover for him and allow him to jump into the play offensively.

All you're really saying is that Smith plays best when someone better covers up his mistakes, which is true of every bad defenseman.  Smith isn't even adequate defensively on the second pair.  Put him on the first and you destroy that pairing (since Kronwall isn't a shutdown guy either).  Good first lines would MURDER that top pair.  Also, Smith has been paired with Dekeyser and Lashoff (both responsible) plenty this year and that hasn't noticeably improved his performance...so you can't blame it all on Quincey and Kindl.  You can't move a guy up to the first pair simply because he's a disaster with every other guy on your team. 

 

The only solution I see is to get a second pair defenseman at the deadline, drop Smith permanently to the third pair with Lashoff, and trade/waive Kindl or Quinecy.  Either that or accept that your defense falls off significantly after the first pair.

Strangely enough, that mish-mash would be the best looking of the 3.

Smith plays really good with everyone not named Quincey.
