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?

Go back to your unknown injury please Franzen.

Quincey shouldn't play when E returns. Lashoff is far more dependable now. Either way, the Wings need a puck-moving defenseman desperately at the trade deadline or next summer.

Kronwall - Ericsson
DeKeyser - Kindl
Lashoff - Smith

Quincey has no excuse for his atrocious defense and he's not contributing anything offensively either. Smith is still developing at least. Hard to believe Holland really wanted Quincey back a second time.

Kyle Quincey. Will Babcock ever learn not to play him in important situations? He's a turnover machine.

Jesus Babcock, I said the exact same thing last game. Keep Quincey the f*** off the ice when Datsyuk and Zetterberg are on.


Or just keep him off the ice altogether. I agree though -- Kronwall and DeKeyser need to be out there against Stamkos. Quincey coughed up the puck in the neutral zone and allowed the Lightning to come right back in. He's noticeably bad almost every shift lately.

Tatar barely played 8 minutes. Meanwhile, Samuelsson over 11 and Cleary had 16.

How does that happen?

The Wings had four guys back, Eakin was by himself and they all collapsed allowing the Stars to maintain control in the zone. That goal never happens if they force Eakin to give up the puck.

How bad was the 2012 summer for Holland? Samuelsson is a three million dollar healthy scratch, Tootoo gets waived, Colaiacovo already bought out and Brunner is with another team. That's brutal and unfortunately still costing the Red Wings now in roster and cap space. Bringing Cleary back only furthered the issue. 

 

I hope Eaves sticks around over Samuelsson. Eaves is a good 4th liner and penalty killer. Another body has to go for Nyquist to come up, which I assume is the ultimate goal here soon.

Singling out Quincey in this game...just shows the irrational hate for him.  There are players for us that have played much worse


No one on defense has been worse. Not just tonight, but the entire season Quincey has been bad and Smith just gets most of the attention. For his price tag, Quincey provides nothing offensively and is equally disappointing at the other end. I don't think anyone is singling Quincey out -- the "irrational hate" stems from him being a bust since he came back.

The Wings just look so slow most nights. Having Helm back helps, but they need Nyquist too on that dismal second line.

Setoguchi is still a massive idiot. He leveled Pav there with a cross check. I thought he was only good for taking a dive.

DeKeyser has a rocket shot! Weiss has been excellent tonight -- probably the best forward for the Red Wings. Another faceoff win created that goal.
