Jimmy is probably going to have to steal this game for the Wings to have a prayer. Man, their third line is arguably better than our first right now. Brutal schedule, doesn't seem like any injured bodies are close to returning and the competition keeps winning. Better start stringing some wins together here real quick.

 

Maybe the Wings can subtle interference their way to a victory.

What a move by Tatar. He had the only two highlights in this game.

Very ugly win, but they got two points. Jimmy was solid if there were any positives to take away.

Two minutes for playing defense. Is he supposed to let Hall go there and skate right in?

The fact that after two periods the Wings have only 1 goal against a terrible Edmonton team is just pathetic.


Not all that surprising since the Wings have basically two NHL calibre lines at the moment. Plus Franzen and Nyquist have slowed down, so there aren't many sources of offense playing.

Extremely boring, but a 1-0 win would be just fine.

Not a very pretty start. Get Alfie away from Bertuzzi and Glendening.

The lack of faith and support for our team in this forum is just insane.  Just shows how spoiled we really are.  The Wings have made the playoffs for as long as I have been a fan, and if they miss out this year, then I am not bailing on them.  I fail to see why some here are willing to give up, bash the team, and insult the management.  Support your team, through thick and thin.  Its what supporting a team is all about. 
 
As for the game tonight, the Blue Jackets should be commended.  They came through with a win when they needed it.
 
As for the Wings, they have 18 more games to fight their way into the post season.


Where did anyone stop supporting the team or bail on them? We wouldn't be here if that was the case. There's a difference between giving up and realistically assessing the Red Wings current troublesome position.

Had a chance to jump all over Columbus in the first and ended up tied. Beyond that, hasn't been very pretty and you knew how the third period would end up with this team.

If Nyquist and Franzen aren't scorching hot, it's a struggle to score goals and the defense is nowhere near strong enough to compensate. The other two lines besides the kids are black holes.

Brad Watson is so terrible at his job. In a league of incompetent officials, he's among the worst.

No penalty for that cross check on Jurco earlier either. They never miss a slight hook and overlook something like that.

Why do the Blue Jackets have banners of every team logo hanging up?


What else are they going to hang up? That one playoff appearance banner would be mighty lonely.

Smith should be benched. I'm not even kidding. PATHETIC! He should know better that the team comes first. What a rookie move.


It was irrelevant. The cross check was negated by the dive. The refs were only calling two for boarding, so Smith having balls didn't cost the team at all.

Smith is a moron for retaliating!


If he didn't, there would be moaning about the Wings never defending themselves. I'm glad Smith stood up for himself. One of the few on the team that actually would.

Kid line looks excellent. This could easily be 3-0 already. Much more jump than at any point on Sunday.

That should be five and a game.

I think the fact that you're comparing scoring between Ericsson and Quincey just shows the ridiculousness of this argument. 

 

It should be obvious at this point that neither player is relied on for the offensive production so I'm not sure why we're using that as a measuring point for their value to the team.

 

E was never going to be relied on for point production obviously. I was using it as a barometer for how pathetic Quincey has been offensively. Why wouldn't Quincey be expected to contribute offense? He did with other teams and he sure as hell isn't close to earning four million dollars for his defense (unlike E). 

 

Quincey has no value -- that's ultimately my point. You can't be a four million dollar player getting 20 minutes per game and have ten points while also being poor defensively.
