#2466324 12/19 GDT: Flames 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT)

Nice officiating. That call on Smith was a joke.

Wings have dominated this game. Gotta keep battling and get the lead back.

Two goals in one game. Progress has been made!


#2466160 Babcock's Job?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 19 December 2013 - 12:56 PM

No way. I do think sometimes a coach's message can get stale after being in the same place for so long like Babs, but it seems as though his assistants provide a nice buffer.

Babs frustrates me at times with his lines and stubbornness to remove or give lesser roles to certain players. That being said, I still consider him one of the best coaches in hockey.

Most of the blame for the Red Wings lack of success since 2009 falls on Holland. He has really provided Babcock with a bunch of patchwork rosters with no identity.


#2466067 Tootoo called up

Posted by GoWings1905 on 18 December 2013 - 09:09 PM

Certainly would have liked to see Eaves and Tootoo remain with the Red Wings all along, but hopefully both show enough in this opportunity to replace the likes of Samuelsson and Cleary namely when healthy bodies get back. 

 

This team desperately needs a spark and something to get them engaged through this rough stretch. Tootoo should provide that at least.

I'm pretty convinced Almquist and/or Ouellet would be an upgrade over Kindl right now.

Pav is not himself at all. He doesn't seem to mesh with Alfie, but what poor timing for Datsyuk to struggle too.

Well we all saw the lineup. I don't know what we were expecting.


I think it's reasonable to expect regular d-men to not have a period like that. Poor coverage on the first three goals and the fourth was on Mrazek.

They are gonna have to win 2-1 games with these forwards.

Kindl is so bad. He went from promising last season to a disaster this one. Didn't shoot the puck and then watches Perry blow down the wing.

All three goals were preventable. Nothing to do with injuries -- just inexcusable poor coverage.


#2465305 Wings call up Sheahan

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 December 2013 - 05:16 PM

I wanted a youth movement, but not in this fashion. It was supposed to be prospects playing instead of Samuelsson, Cleary and Bertuzzi -- not at the expense of our best forwards.

This is really hard to watch. There will be better days ahead this season, but boy the Red Wings are a mess.

Desperately need Z back because there somehow seems to be a leadership void without him around.

It wasn't a great giveaway but it was a suicide pass from Kindl that caused it. He layed a nice slow juicy pass there.


Good call -- I didn't notice that until seeing the replay, but Tatar was less at fault than Kindl there. Pass from Kindl really handcuffed Tatar.

Cleary and Sammy on the PP. It's like Babs is trying to negate the man advantage.

I don't know how much blame is deserving on the two goals, but Jimmy Howard cannot hold a lead at all this season.

Up two on the road against Florida and the Wings stop skating in the third. The Panthers are just outplaying them entirely this period.

Samuelsson is so bad at hockey. It's unreal the money he is stealing.

Mule! Nyquist is a flat-out playmaker. Gus and Tatar are fun to watch.
