On the 2nd night of a back-to-back, on the road, with Monster in net I'm fine with 1 point. Of course the problem is right now all we ever get is 1 point so it'd be nice to somehow pull out 2 points in these winnable games.
I thought overall we played well tonight. 2nd line looks really good, but let's not kid ourselves; that is basically a really good 3rd line, what we need is Alfie, Weiss and Nyquist to give us a 2nd line. Dekeyser had a terrific game, easily our best d-man, and it's great to see how his offensive game is developing. Keep it up and Calder-discussion won't be too far off. 1st line was weak I thought. Neither Pav or Z looked very good imo, and they didn't last game either. But they're chipping in a goal here and there so can't complain too much. Just wish they could lock it down defensively a bit harder.
Problem I'm seeing is we have too much filler/garbage in the bottom 6. Like I said, Nyquist, Alfie and Weiss should be on a 2nd line and Sammy, Cleary and Andersson should be out of the lineup.
Monster didn't have a good game but it is what it is. He stepped up in the OT atleast to give us a chance. We need Howard to find his game and steal some wins.

Bert seems to disappear when we need him. I don't think he deserves to be on a line with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. He's not playing terrible but I just think we can inject some youth into this team. I'd rather them lose with learning pains then lose with old vets who really don't bring anything to the table and slow the team down.
Why do you think Pav and Z are doing so well this year? Bert has been making room for them and drawing traffic to the front of the net. I know people have a hard time giving Bert credit on here but he is playing really well. If you want to inject some youth and get rid of the old vets start with ones that are not hurting this team and that are doing their job. Cleary, Mule, and Sammy

So many whiners in here. No this isnt the worst team in the last 25 years, no this team doesnt "suck". They might "suck" in shootouts but who cares? 4th in the East and havnt lost in regulation in a while.
They need everyone healthy at once and we'll see whats up.
Also, no Grand Rapids would not beat the Red Wings.
Weiss was the only not healthy forward tonight and alfie was a last minute scratch

Has HBO started filming yet?
They decided to film a steaming pile of feces instead of the Red Wings, figuring no one would know the difference. They'll cut in some parts of Babcock staring and Cleary falling over and it's gonna be great.
So glad I got realdrunk instead of watching another realgood performance by this team.
