Abby! He honestly deserves one. His hands are awful, but he has been working very hard on that line.

Kyle Quincey is directly responsible for two of the goals against.

Scratch this idiot and put Lashoff in.

He won't make any trades. He believes getting Datsyuk, Franzen and Weiss back is enough. Well last time I checked none of those guys are defenseman and we need one badly. Holland's part of the problem.


Exactly. Missing on Suter was the start of it all. Imagine if DeKeyser had not grown up around Detroit and chosen the Red Wings. They just don't have the talent right now to grow from within on defense. Plus it doesn't help when you give up a first rounder and then re-sign Kyle Quincey as your move to bolster the defense.

Holland is gonna have to get creative this summer and actually make a trade for a quality d-man.

Kyle Quincey is the worst player in the NHL. He makes four million dollars to suck at everything hockey related.

So much for starting on time. The defense is healthy and horrendous.

This script is so old and frustrating. If they miss the playoffs, these blown leads at home and shootout losses will be to blame.

Miller! Wings are dominating this game. Stay out of the box and keep pressing.

When is the four million dollar disaster going to take his turn as the healthy scratch? Quincey has made every partner he has played with this season significantly worse. Smith looked much more composed with Kronwall and now DeKeyser has struggled lately since getting anchored with Quincey.

Clean defense by DeKeyser is a penalty, but that hit on Abby isn't? Make sure you call 43 hooks per game though, NHL.

I like Nyquist and Tatar playing together. Would be fun to have them with Helm when Pav and Z get back.

Why did it take Babs a 3-0 defecit to realize Andersson centering the top line was bad and Helm needed better wingers? Probably wouldn't matter much in the outcome, but Helm is the best center on the team right now and he has Cleary on his wing.

getting sick of these china doll Swedes...its ridiculous.

 

You really can't possibly be calling Henrik Zetterberg soft? The guy has more heart and willpower than maybe anyone in the league. Without Z carrying this team for months, the Red Wings probably aren't sniffing anywhere near a playoff spot right now. He has been playing hurt and doing so at a very high level recently.

 

I'm all for being frustrated with injuries, but I don't think Henrik Zetterberg missing games has anything to do with being Swedish.

Per khan: Franzen could be ready. At practice hes on a line with darren helm and alfie....in place of...wait for it........Dan Cleary.

Could it beeee?!?
Nyquist z abby
Franzen helm alfie
Jurco sheahan tatar
Eaves glend miller

Dat lineup. Dem feels.

LOOKOUT PANTHERS.

 

Those lines are terrific. Add Pavel eventually (hopefully soon) and that would be a deep and talented forward group. I don't want Andersson back at this point. I'm genuinely excited about this team seeing the potential of that lineup.

Riley Sheahan is awesome. Sorry Andersson, but you can stay away if it means Sheahan keeps playing.

Andersson seems very expendable at this point. He's solid defensively and good on the PK, but is slow and needs speedy wingers to succeed (see Nyquist and Brunner). I think both Sheahan and Glendening bring more to the team already. There's just too many forwards and not enough cap space if the Red Wings ever get healthy to keep the best players around. 

 

Z - Pav - Abby

Franzen - Weiss - Nyquist

Tatar - Helm - Alfredsson

Miller - Sheahan/Glendening - Eaves

 

That would be my ideal forward group. It's just a shame because the dead weight (Sammy, Cleary and Bertuzzi) is preventing any roster flexibility.
