#2467402 12/23 GDT : Islanders 3 at Red Wings 0

Quincey and Smith have been awful together as a pairing from day one and yet Babs continues to stick with them. It's honestly ridiculous and I think Smith's development is being hampered by being anchored with Quincey.

Put DeKeyser with Smith and keep Kindl and Lashoff together. Quincey should be a healthy scratch permanently. He's absolutely the worst player on the team.

Shootout win! Broke the OT and SO streaks in consecutive games.

Two nice wins and some healthy bodies coming back. Loved Sheahan, Jurco and Tatar tonight.

Sheahan is relentless on the forecheck. That line with Tatar and Jurco was unbelievable in the third. Amazing what speed and young legs can do.

Tatar! Jurco and Sheahan look more than capable of being NHL players.

Only the Wings get goals disallowed from refs losing sight of the puck. This league has an agenda and they don't do a very good job disguising it anymore.

Alfie from Dats for the winner anyone?


Well done!

Alfie has a bomb. What a game for Datsyuk. Such a relief to break the losing streak and OT struggles and the Red Wings worked so hard tonight for those two points. Very proud of these guys for battling in tough circumstances. Feels great to win again!

My goodness, they call hooking no matter what but Butler gets ten cross-checks in and nothing.

Props to the crowd tonight too. Loudest the Joe has sounded since last spring.

Pav is back. What a ridiculous period he has played.

Haha, wow. How do your feet go out when you get "hooked" at the waist? That's pure garbage officiating.

Alfie looks great tonight. I like Tatar up with Datsyuk too.

After some great PKing, that's an absolute momentum killer.


It really is. Extremely close to being up 3-1 and then the penalties kill the momentum. Team can't catch a break on top of all the injuries.

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.
