How has Tatar played only ten minutes? Him and Sheahan have been the best forwards easily. Babs is lost.

Not a huge fan of cross-checks to the face, but totally acceptable there given the receiver.

Tell Perry he's gonna get it.

Tatar! Awesome tribute to his dad on what has to be an incredibly tough night to be out there.

Sheahan looks really good too.

Quincey is such a disaster. Can't we see more of Marchenko instead?

Tatar is relentless. Definitely been the Wings best player in the new year.

Glad to see Sheahan get his first. I have been impressed with him in the games he has been up. Really want him to stick around this season as the fourth line center.

Enough with the right-handed nonsense. Samuelsson should play about two minutes per game if he has to dress and absolutely never on the PP. Put Smith out there.

Babs says that garbage constantly and it's consistently inaccurate. If this team is going to be overwhelmingly mediocre anyways, I want Nyquist and Tatar playing a lot of minutes. Dan Cleary has no role here in the future (realistically, not sure in Ken Holland's world). Call up Jurco and Sheahan too. Let's at least build a foundation instead of middling in mediocrity with a bunch of pieces that have no long-term value.

Best Kyle Quincey moment of the season by far.

Punching that diving ugly clown in the face.

Chris Rooney is a joke. The Sharks flop to the ice and get the call every time. Their diving never changes and somehow the NHL lets it continue.

Really strong period for the Red Wings. The Thornton line is giving them fits, but otherwise the Wings are skating hard.

Is there ever a game the Sharks don't get assistance from the refs? The playoff series and all the diving they got away with still pisses me off. Looks like the penalties are going to be lopsided yet again.

Tatar! Those hands are ridiculous.

Don't give him more ice time though, Babs.

Jimmy obviously bailed the team out in the first when things could have gone south quickly. That's the type of performance the Wings need more consistently with Howard while they battle injuries and likely aren't going to be scoring five goals very often. 

 

Also, I think it's absolutely clear now from the past couple games that Brendan Smith should never be paired another second with Kyle Quincey. Smith has looked composed and much more assertive jumping in offensively playing with Kronner. I would keep those two together and have E/DeKeyser on the second pairing. Whichever of Kindl/Quincey is less of a disaster at the time with Lashoff then. 

 

Good win with a very tough three games looming in California. 




#2470234 Helm has sore groin...

Posted by GoWings1905 on 02 January 2014 - 02:06 PM

Really unfortunate Helm can't stay healthy because we all know what a difference maker he is on the ice for the Red Wings.

 

It would be nice with Weiss out too for Helm to center the second line because I think most games the Wings need Z and Pavel together to carry the offense. Hopefully this isn't long-term and Helm will come back contributing offensively like he was before.

Both Toronto goals today were due to that last effort players are taking to score. We do not have players willing to do that and we lost. 


Bozak throwing his stick up and having a point shot hit it is extra effort, but Abby driving the net hard to tie the game isn't?

The Red Wings loss today had nothing to do with compete level. That was the best 60 minute performance they have put together in awhile.

c'mon that was a piss poor performance in the shootout for jimmy the winning goal was flubbed and still went through a huge hole he left open. he was determined to lose that shootout. once again we lose a game we would have won if gus was in net. but morale victories right


Jimmy was great the first 65 minutes. I highly doubt he was determined to lose the shootout, given the stakes and his competitive nature.

It's hard to be upset with the Wings effort today. They were the better team and if they duplicate that in upcoming games, wins will follow.
