#2550449 11/20 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Jets 3

Oh it is premature, and in no way am I saying is it the right choice, I just have that feeling that he could help our team speed and breakouts.
But right now jimmy has been great, not arguing that.


And damn.
Byfuglien.


That's fair. I do think you could definitely be correct within the next couple of years about Mrazek.

The Wings need Smith back. The defense pairings and puck moving really suffer without him. DeKeyser and Quincey can't get out of the zone.

I hope Ouellet stays up permanently even when Smith comes back. Kindl is done it appears and Lashoff should be the 7th d-man at best.

Just not the Wings night in any sense.

Don't think there's a whole lot to read into this one besides it's going to happen over 82 games.

Dive and late call. Subban is still a clown.

Mantha's goal-scoring ability can't get here soon enough.

Got a point at least. Because let's be honest, my odds with Jessica Alba are better than the Wings winning a shootout.

And Tampa won the Cup when?


Is that truly your only barometer of success? I think the original point was well taken -- Stevie has complemented his drafting with good moves in free agency and trades. Kenny "kicks tires" and mostly fails, but defaults to then saying building through the draft is the way to go anyways.

You need balance to build a contender. Especially when you draft mid-to-late first round for two decades.

Can we put to sleep the Glendening shutdown center myth that was never an actual thing? Stamkos is dominating that line every single shift.

Babs needs to stop playing that line so much. They can't match up with elite forwards.

Yes because bringing back the tie is better than a shootout LOL. Some people.

Who said anything about ties? 3-on-3 is very rarely going to result in a tie after five minutes.

For the record, I do like ties better than the skills competition for the extra point.

What a stupid rule. Like he was trying to shoot that puck out of play. Get rid of delay of game and the shootout. Both are pointless.

Of course. Devils down 4-2, so the Wings get the only penalty somehow out of that. Gotta love officiating by the score.

Kyle Quincey is really missing out here. Kindl, Smith, Cleary and Franzen have goals in the past two games. Revenge of the LGW whipping crew.

Well, this is for sure the worst line-up on paper so far in this young season. It looks like last season only Jurco and Tatar arent as good.
 
I want to cry. 


No Alfie either. This team is seriously devoid of skill at forward. Then we have Helm with all the speed in the world and absolutely no finishing ability.

Very hard to score when your 4th line gets as many minutes as they do.


Agreed. Even worse when you have two 4th lines, which I consider the Helm line to be as well with Nestrasil and Cleary. So basically it's Z tonight and what should be a third line with Sheahan.


#2547673 Gustavsson injured

part of me wishes that we just let Gus go and tried to see what we could do with Broduer i know id get a lot of s*** for saying that but if we could have promised him splitting time with Howie i would have been fine with that i think he still could have stolen us games and gave Howie


I wouldn't want Howard in a time share with Brodeur. At this stage, Jimmy is the better goalie and one the Wings have invested money and time in developing to be their guy.
