#2371668 3/20 GDT : Wild 4 at Red Wings 2

If the glass was the net, they would have a good 30 goals.

Don't have the skill anymore to compensate for poor defensive coverage and atrocious special teams play. I think the Red Wings have done some good things through two periods, but far too many mistakes and some awful luck with the officiating.

Our top-six needs a ton of help and I don't mean Bertuzzi and/or Samuelsson coming back.

Defensive breakdowns all over the place like in Calgary. The Wild haven't controlled play at all and the Red Wings are making it easy for them.

I still have no clue why that was a double minor.

Great kill! Ericsson did a wonderful job in front of the net.

Nice sell as usual by Burrows.

This team is impossible to figure out. You just never know which side is going to show up.

This version is fun to watch and pretty good at the same time.

The Red Wings have been very sloppy in the neutral zone all game. Gotta get the puck deep instead of these continued turnovers.

Why call up Nyquist to scratch him? It's not like there aren't other options to choose from in the unproductive forward category.


#2370061 Quincey out tonight vs. Nucks

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 March 2013 - 07:05 PM

It's easy to rip on the guy for his lack of offensive production, but he's actually been pretty good defensively. Obvs not worth the contract, but you can't argue with the way he places himself in front of the puck (clearly). Hoping he recovers swiftly.

 

Definitely agree. Outside the horrendous start, Quincey has been pretty solid defensively. I expected far more from an offensive standpoint out of him, but he has been reliable at least in his own end.

 

I would much rather have Quincey right now than Ian White.

Wow! Nobody deserved that more than Pavel. What an absolute clinic he put on tonight.

Huge two points on the road. Tomorrow will be tough, but maybe Jimmy can steal one.

Cleary with Datsyuk now instead.

Very creative Babs!

I would keep the lines the same. Things are going very well with lots of goals and chances.

Even if Pavel somehow likes having Abdelkader on his line (which I doubt), the biggest problem is this extended trial together hasn't worked. At all.

Datsyuk needs skill around him. Not floating Franzen and a two-point grinder with no offensive ability.

Weak call. Can't even finish a check in this soft league now.
