#2454509 11/16 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Islanders 5 (SO)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 November 2013 - 06:42 PM

The Red Wings have gotten worked by the Islanders lately, plus back-to-back games seems like a poor combination.

 

It feels as though the Wings are bound to win a close game eventually and have something go in their favor, so 4-3 in OT and a Helm winner. Maybe being away from home will change the outcome.

Mediocrity has overtaken this franchise since 2009. Holland is far too complacent and Babcock's message seems to be wearing thin.

If you are going to be average, can't we at least do it with Nyquist and start incorporating valuable pieces of the future more?

Nobody even got a shot on net in the shootout. Probably should try holding leads in regulation since they are beyond awful in OT and the shootout.

This team is pathetic right now. Losing seven in a row on home ice is inexcusable.

Oh, a blown lead at home. What a shocking turn of events.

There's a leading 3-1 penalty. Completely ignore Ovechkin's blatant hold and then call one on Kronwall.

Franzen and Tatar have been terrific.

Tatar has put together quite the period. Drew a penalty, screened Holtby on Franzen's first and a beautiful pass on the second.

Good for Mule too. We know he can score them in bunches.

That's why people get annoyed with Franzen. Because he can do that and doesn't. What a shot.

Tatar just created more on that shift than Samuelsson and Cleary combined this season.

I would scratch him, though.

Just brutal to watch. I cringe when anyone but Pav and Z are out there. Team is completely lost in every facet right now.

Yes he does that's why he waived players he knew would clear. Probably been trying to trade all these guys first


Wouldn't it just be easier not to sign a bunch of spare parts to begin with?

Had to be done to make space for E tomorrow right? I always liked Eaves quite a bit. It's a shame injuries really derailed his playing time with the Red Wings and then he never seemed to get the opportunity to consistently remain in the lineup. His days were numbered once Holland decided to bring Miller back.

So, when Babs came to practice this morning, his idea of breaking the losing streak was to play Cleary and Samuelsson on the third line? How does Tatar deserve to be a healthy scratch over those two?

 

Babs and Holland are two of the best, but I have no idea what the hell they are doing this season.

Wow, this is beyond frustrating.

Very good effort, but yet another home loss. This team looks a lot like the one from last regular season year so far -- very inconsistent and pretty average overall. They have shown signs of being better at times, but can't put it all together on a regular basis.

I say it every GDT, but it's inexcusable not to have Nyquist up. The secondary scoring lines were improved tonight, but this is still a one-line forward group.

Pav! He deserved it -- all of that happened because he held the puck in at the line.

Ughm stop the puck? Uknow his job? They dont pay him millions of dollars a year for his defensemen to stop pucks for him.


There isn't a goalie in the league that would have stopped that shot. It was an odd-man rush one-timer. I guess you expect impossible lateral movement?
