#2455437 11/19 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 0

This team is bad and boring combined. Only remote joy I get is watching Z and Pavel out there and then I remember Holland is wasting another year of their careers and get more upset.

I have a novel idea: Win a damn game in regulation since clearly OT and the shootout aren't going to end in two points.

I feel bad for Z and Pavel. They have to be so frustrated with the lack of help from the supporting cast. Helm has looked terrific at least, but the forwards overall are weak, particularly the bottom-six. Defense desperately needs a puck-mover that can play big minutes and contribute offensively because Quincey and Kindl have been atrocious.

Something has to happen. You can't just keep repeating "we are close to turning things around" after every loss. They may break out of this streak soon, but long-term the resounding issues of this team aren't going away.

The bottom-six of this team provides absolutely nothing. Can we at least try a fourth line once that hits and forechecks? Something to produce a physical presence and maybe some energy and push back. There's no speed and size because apparently we need four lines of marginal at best skill players.

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.


#2453917 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by GoWings1905 on 15 November 2013 - 03:50 PM

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.
