Yes we lost cause of Franzen.


Not exclusively because of Franzen obviously, but it would be nice if he could contribute anything offensively for a team struggling to score goals. Because what else does Franzen bring when he isn't a goal-scorer? 0 goals in 13 games and a minus 9 is atrocious. That's not streaky -- it's not competing hard enough as a player.

Yeah...2 years ago.


Well, there was only one year since and Howard played all of three games in a series the Wings were absolutely manhandled as a team. If Howard performs like he has so far, he is the least of the Wings concerns.

I'm most excited about Sproul because he has the most unique skill set of the bunch and provides something the Red Wings are sorely lacking. Ouellet has been extremely impressive while up in Detroit -- you would never have any idea he's only 21 because he is so composed and sound defensively. Not as good of a skater as DeKeyser, but Ouellet's presence kinda reminds me of DeKeyser's game. 

 

I think Ouellet and Sproul are untouchables for me going forward, but I would be fine with using the other three as trade bait. The odds of all or any of them panning out are pretty low, plus you already have Smith, DeKeyser and Ericsson around in Detroit. That being said, Ouellet and Sproul probably have the most appeal, so they are going to be the names at the top of other teams desires in a potential trade too. 

 

I like the direction the defense is heading in the next couple of years. The transition hasn't necessarily been smooth getting there, but once these guys start hitting the NHL, the Wings should be in good shape.

Those terrible Leafs just won again, in a shootout. They now have 18 wins and are only two points behind Detroit with a game in hand. But we're so much better than them.


Long season and the Leafs are on a hot streak. It's not sustainable the way they play defense. Besides, we saw the Leafs do this last season too and how did that play out? They should have easily buried the Wings in March and couldn't despite Detroit having no one healthy.

yep, keep laughing. If they keep playing like they have this month, you'll be laughing at them falling down the standings.


3-2-2? Not setting the world on fire, but eight of 14 points isn't a tragedy either. Besides, only two games have been really poor showings anyways this month.

It's a long season. The Wings have done pretty well to this point of minimizing the lows. Then again, maybe I don't understand what exactly people expect from them.

4 mins left pulling goalie wow
That terrible Toronto team that so many called it is 4 points back with two games in hand.


The Leafs did this last season too. They had like an eight point cushion on the Wings in March and imploded. And that was a Detroit team with no one healthy.

This team is about to free fall big time.


Based on what, one bad game tonight?


#2556504 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

I have a life outside of a hockey forum.
 
And I don't have personal code of having to go into and read every post of every thread and then give my opinion, regardless of whether or not I actually care or want to talk about the subject.
 
So no, I haven't.


I assume that had that thread survived and Howard's numbers this season went the way you hoped/planned (after two games), there would have been time set aside for the stats.

Mind you Howard has played extremely well which kinda ruined the fun of it all.

I have no faith or confidence in the Wings right now. I'm afraid they're showing their true colors. Wings will lose tonight. Probably be a blow out for the Leafs. I can see a 5-6 goal game from the Leafs.

They deserved to win Wednesday for sure and last night went to a shootout. Tied for first in the conference, top ten in every major statistical category and have won 7 of 11 overall.

Enjoy the ride. This team is way better than anyone could have imagined.

"Howard's nine shootout goals against lead the entire NHL"


His shooters are 3 for 16. I can't imagine there any teams worse in that regard either.

Can we please trade Howard for a bag of pucks? hell a roll of tape would do it.


That would be a genius move to trade a goalie with a 2.15 GAA and .918 save percentage. I know he is bad in the shootout, but my goodness, what an extreme overreaction.

How many goals have we scored? Last two games were 1 for 5.


3 for 16 now, so equally as awful as Howard.

Howard falls to 0-4 in shootouts this season, making just three saves on 10 shots in skills competition

 

http://redwingsfront...ls-competition/

 

You would post that, of course. Funny though how quiet the Howard bashing club is about his play for 60 minutes of regulation in most games this season. The Wings should have scored more than one goal against a backup goalie if they wanted to avoid falling in a shootout. 

 

Not to mention, none of the Wings shooters have any clue how to put the puck on or in the net during the skills competition either.

Pure domination and it's going to OT somehow.

Kinda feels like the game in Montreal.

Franzen single-handedly ruined all 2:00 of that power play. Pav didn't even get on the ice.

f*** off Eddie. Get this clown off national broadcasts. He's a Blackhawks slappy that doesn't bother covering up his homerism.
