#2351804 2/5 GDT : Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

If the bottom-six isn't scoring, shouldn't they at least be effective as penalty killers considering it's their primary role with so many calls? No energy, no offense, terrible at special teams.

This team has four useful forwards right now. Everyone else is a passenger and/or very bad.

Zetterberg and Brunner once again the only two noticeable players (for the right reasons) that period.

The NHL is laughable. Does anyone enjoy these special teams contest or does Bettman claim they are good for the league like shootouts?

How can Nyquist and his skill still be in the minors when Bertuzzi and Cleary are here in prominent roles? That's inexcusable. There's a spot for Nyquist playing top-six minutes if they cut the dead weight out.


#2350423 Emmerton

Emmerton has been basically what I expected. A marginal skill player in a bottom-six role that doesn't provide much of anything. He's a decent skater and can be used on the PK, but beyond that he's filler until Helm is healthy. I would prefer a 4th line center that hits, forechecks and is physical instead. Abdelkader does all of those things more effectively at wing.

Henrik Zetterberg's determination is unmatched. What an effort to carry this team to a huge win.

The captaincy is in great hands.

I can't believe Kindl, Bertuzzi and Cleary are seriously all on a powerplay unit together.

That about sums up the mediocrity level we've seen.

Tootoo was a great signing.

The refs still stink.

#2347908 1/27 Red Wings 1 @ Chicago Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 January 2013 - 09:46 PM

Ugh, man I hate the Blackhawks.

Outcome was largely decided going 0-6 on the PP against a tired team. The Red Wings played well in the third, but to score only one goal is disappointing with that many opportunities.

The defense is improving each game at least. That's certainly a positive with no Nick and a ton of injuries. It all comes down to whether the offense can get going now, especially on the powerplay. Has anyone from the third or fourth lines scored yet? They provide solid energy, but chipping in with some goals would be a huge boost to Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Pittsburgh is allowed to do that...

When was the last time the Wings played a full 60 minutes?

#2347248 Brunner Equals Clutch/Work on Signing *merged

I'm just curious, but what or who would you call a consistent playoff performer?  First of all, as Wings fans, we're spoiled because we make the playoffs every year.  Has Datsyuk or Zetterberg been a "consistent" playoff performer?  Yzerman?  Fedorov?  Each of them has had good playoff years and not so good.  Just having a hard time figuring out what your criteria is?  What would be a large sample size to you? 

 

Zetterberg without question. He has probably been the best playoff performer in the league since the lockout along with Briere.
