#2356322 2/15 GDT : Anaheim Ducks 5 at Red Wings 2

So I haven't watched the game, look at the stats and see that Z, Brunner, Cleary were -3? Did they play that bad? Or "just" got very unlucky?


Z and Brunner were fine, Cleary was just there. They missed an assignment on the first goal as a line, but the other two weren't on the forwards. That was Ian White's doing for both.

Well, he wasn't in the net for one so Jimmy didn't really give up five anyways.

Kronwall and White were responsible for all four. Jimmy was fine tonight. His defense turned the puck over and left two players wide open at point blank range.

I would take Huskins for sure over White right now. White is an offensive d-man, but he certainly isn't contributing to the PP. Huskins is an upgrade defensively and can kill penalties.

The Red Wings really need Smith back too. He makes White very expendable.

Mickey said it best. You can't be that terrible defensively with so much missing at forward. A couple leads given up quickly and poor turnovers with a chance to win in the third. No margin for error and there were too many errors. Holland has to get a top pairing guy before the season ends or this summer for sure.

The Ducks are for real, though. Impressive looking team. Nice game for the Red Wings bottom-six. Like the way Tatar and Andersson competed tonight. Same with Miller and Emmerton.

Turnovers. Kronwall and White beyond sloppy all season. Those two have to be way better with the minutes they log.

Boom! Tatar and Andersson with goals. Give these kids a chance. Sorry Bertuzzi and Samuelsson, but I would rather get a head start on the future.

Filppula has to prove now he can carry a line at center offensively or else it's all on Z with Pavel out.

We got our youth movement.

The I love baseball line sums it up perfectly for me as well. That lineup and starting rotation makes me want it to be April 1st tomorrow.

Can't wait to see those beautiful white jerseys and a huge crowd at Comerica.

Cleary has been awful, but isn't every post in the GDT about him enough? Seems redundant to just keep piling on.

The roller coaster continues. Only saw the third and OT, but hard to comprehend from that why the Red Wings looked so flat.

Special teams are a disaster. Need the PP to get a goal in the third with those chances when you aren't on your game otherwise.

Disappointing outcome against a rookie goalie. Did they even break 20 SOG?

Not sure but I don't think no SOG in 18 minutes is the best strategy to beat a rookie goalie.

Do people spend the entire game in the bathroom or something?
 
:tounge:


The wait is about that long.

I'm not entirely opposed to the Red Wings staying at JLA as I enjoy going there, but in all honesty it's quite inadequate as a sporting venue. Besides the sight lines and memories in the building, there aren't many other redeeming qualities.

I go to sporting events for the product itself, though the total package is nice considering the cost to attend. The Joe is a dump inside. The lack of restrooms, crowded and unappealing concourse, uncomfortable seats for us tall humans and there's nothing around the arena either. Everyone walks out through the same exit, so it takes 15 minutes to even get out of there after the game.

As has been mentioned, the area around Comerica Park, Ford Field and the Fox Theatre is better developed. Building a new arena there makes a lot of sense.

I agree with the throwaway premise of society and generally these new venues come at some cost to the taxpayers as well. I don't think moving for the sake of it is desirable. However, in this case, the Red Wings genuinely need a new arena to play their home games.

So much for that flow.

One period was nice at least.

Maybe CPrice can come here again and tell us what a lovely fella Backes is.
