ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Rate this topic

Can we please get some damn offense on this team? WTF

It felt like it was impossible to score a goal all series...like we have to only get scrappy goals. Datsyuk was probably playing injured, he's injured this time EVERY year now. Zetterberg, same thing. He's falling off a bit. We need more offense on this team. The defense looks like it's gonna grow and blossom in another year or two.

Tatar, you're not Datsyuk dude, quit trying to skate all over the arena and through 3 defenders.Man, this series was here for the wings to take.

Ps...Pulks with 5 goals in 3 AHL playoff games. We've got to utilise him better when he comes up next year. Nice to see little bert get one in his playoff debut too. Not on topic, but hey, we could all do with cheering up!

does anyone else agree that Kindl played well? We didn't really miss Kronner and K played just like he should've. Trade E and Q and Smith. Acquire a top guy and keep Kindl in.

Let's see what he's like under Blashill next year. He was never getting out of Babs doghouse, but if you shelter his minutes and use him extensively on the PP he can be an asset for sure.

If you stare at the stats then everyone jumps on Nyqvist but he was a hell of a lot better than Tatar. He's always in on the puck and getting zone time. Tatar has no forecheck to his game and kills all offence if he's actually handling the puck and he also saved his worst game for game 7. He still dourest know how to play playoff hockey. Gus was good, sometimes it doesn't translate on the stat sheet, much like most of our forwards

Maybe we are all looking for someone to blame? It might not matter and it might not be right, but i was not impressed with tatar's handling of the puck and absolute oblivious offensive zone nature.

Remember, even though the team has 2 world class players in Datsyuk and Zetterberg, for some reason we're supposed to just be happy that the team made the playoffs

Z is no longer a world class player...Glenny and Sheahan were more dangerous than he was. He should retire.

If you would have told me our Captain and leading scorer would score only twice in the last 29 games, in addition to a whopping zero in a 7 game first round series, this is exactly the result I would have expected. Not sure what to make of Zetterberg's performance the last third of the season and playoffs.

I'm not surprised at all...He's aged alot these past few seasons, and slowing down, and isn't capable of what he was back in 2008......Then again - neither am I.

Look at the quality of those 31 shots. The good chances we did have, we missed wide and weren't even credited as SOG.

It all comes back to not having any real talent that can score. Guys like Abby and Helm aren't top 6 players. Either Nyquist or Tatar need to go, because they do have talent but can't score in big moments.

Lets give them a little longer before we right them off. For 3 or 4 years Dats was almost as bad in the playoffs, and he became one of the best in the world. Hell I vaguely remember the trade Stevie Y conversations.

Unless of course we can get a good deal for quality at D!

As for Abby and Helm..I think the former has proved himself a 2nd line talent. Helmer should be on the 3rd line, and with a fit Franzen and Cole, that's exactly where he would be.

Babcock is done. This team needs a shake up. He doesn't seem to have it anymore. Wings will promote the Griffins coach to get these guys to play as well for him as they did for the Griffins. Time to trade some peeps and get some D. This offseason, if nothing big happens, nothing big will happen and they will continue with barely making the playoffs and losing handily.

And Tampa couldnt score in game 1. They showed up they couldn't get one to go, that Tatar miss chance could have been the series... that is hockey

Mantha next season

GO WINGS!

Playing without 2 top six forwards...

Playing 7th game without best def...

Playing with Marchenlo and Kindl...

Good JOB.

Kenny put a solid playoff contenders but not Stanley Cup contenders on the ice.

That will be Holland's motto in the offseason. Ironically, just about every team that loses in the playoffs can say something like this.

Yeah...It does...But the Wings seemed to play themselves outta a few games in this series, and lets be honest - TB is a good team...They may very well take Montreal to 7 games as well.

Yes they are, and if they had a better goalie i don't think we would have looked as good as we did.

Team played better than most of the other games this series, defensive breakdown in third. Lots of shots but unless the opposing goalie develops a sudden hole in his chest, they aren't going in. None of them shooting for corners or if they do, its 3 feet wide.

Maybe he gives a s*** about this team and wants them to do good.

Yeah, too often being pissed at losing is construed as negative. I'm pissed we lost, and I want us to get better. If trading Nyquist could get us a big winger who could help out Z/D in the playoffs, then lets do it. Standing pat does nothing, we showed we're close. Need some more pieces.
