I really hope this was Gustavsson's last game as a Red Wing. I can't tell you how many times I held my breath on something that wasn't a big deal because of him.

I do that on almost every shot that Howard faces. little bad angle shots that I would be pissed at a Wing for even taking scare the s*** outta me when directed at Howie


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Big changes this off-season. No idea what they'll be, but they're necessary.

 

This has been said the past two or three years. Nothing has changed. Come late August the big signing will be Dan Cleary and Quincey will have gotten a new 4 yr/ 4 mill per contract.

To use their speed I'm noticing the wings are trying long passes every chance they get, like a fast break team in basketball. It works when the passes are tape to tape, but when they are not it's an icing or a turn over. That goal in OT was off of a long pass that was a turnover. Just giving the puck back to Boston is not a smart idea. The wings have to use their speed, but be smart about it.

Babs' obsession with Glendening has gone too far. He lost practically every faceoff tonight and yet was always out there for draws in the defensive zone. Why wouldn't you try Legwand, since there are two centers on that line anyways? Glendening lost the draw cleanly on the Bruins power play goal too, which is where the momentum in the game changed entirely.

The 4th line and Kindl/Lashoff pairing were huge liabilities in this game and they have nowhere to hide against the Bruins.

Yeah, I think the pressure of the role has exceeded his capacity.  This game, however, was the only one in which I felt this way.  And nothing to take away from Glen but he should be moved down next game.

They have no where to hide because Babs keeps playing them so much. I get it, he likes Glendening and he competes real hard. I liked Aaron Downey and he competed his ass off but I wouldn't have him playing against the Bruins top line. Glen is getting smoked in the circle and Babs keeps playing him. Bruins score a goal? Following shift Kindl/Lashoff, it's crazy. He's a great coach, but he does some f***ed up s*** sometimes.

Peter Laviolette is a coach who has been to two Finals with two different teams and won a Cup.  He is looking for a fresh start.  He will command respect from his players because of his background.  

 

Time for a fresh change.  For Babcock too.  He should go to a Cup contender that's looking to get over the hurdle.  


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

Is it just me or does every team in the playoffs look far superior for playoff hockey then we do?

Kindl/Lashoff pair worst in history. The amount of bad decisions and icings these two boneheads make are unreal on every shift. Can't stand them.

We're a small team playing the Bruins, so yeah, it makes sense for it to look that way.  What if we played the Wild?  We'd probably be laughing at them and wondering why they didn't finish 24th.

Yeah, you won't win a cup with that pairing.

Wild are playing pretty sick hockey right now so I don't know about your statement. Also once Red Wings are knocked out, I'll be pulling for the Wild.

Be happy he did so well for us tonight, because many goalies would've floundered in the same circumstance and he stood tall and truly played a great game. He battled hard and did everything you could ask of him. Again, two goals against off of crazy deflections and the second goal wouldn't have happened if Nyquist covered his man through the play. You couldn't ask for much better from a backup, especially on such short notice. Clearly, Tampa Bay, Detroit is not, at least in the backup goaltending department.

 

As much as Nyquist built on his strengths this season, his shortcomings haven't changed.

They weren't ready for the size and relentlessness of Boston. I'm happy that they're getting the experience, it'll be very invaluable for them.

Oh well -- hockey season's only about 5 more months away.

 

Nothing left to say but ouch -- I feel bad for any Wing fan watching on Saturday, because that'll no doubt be an ugly, ugly game. Disappointing.

I think Babcock is guilty of coaching for the individual. He's so busy managing egos and delicate psyches they he sometimes makes bizarre decisions. Like Glendening taking crucial face-offs, or his coddling of other players. Which is fine sometimes. But in a crucial playoff game, screw building confidence and go with what will win.

Boston's D is the difference. Kept us to the wings on almost every shot after the 1st. Our defense (especially Kindl/Lashoff/Quincey) watched instead of skating, couldn't win battles and made horrible 1st passes. That's the difference in the series.
