How often would we need to win the Cup for you to consider our organization "competitive" if we aren't now?

I would be call them competitive if they were contenders most years. The trend lately is they are first round fodder, with a chance they may eek into the 2nd round. Not really what I call competitive.

Holland is too safe. In the cap era you have to take risks, and he is risk adverse. I think this is reflective of the fact he is safe in his job, so long as he sails the ship of mediocrity he is safe. Why take risks to win a cup when he can keep his job just ekking in the playoffs and getting bounced early? 

 

This team needs new blood, young kids, bold moves and swinging for the fences!


In Topic: ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

I'm sorry but that is absolute b*******. That's fine of you to have your opinion but you are completely wrong. That was by far the Wings' best game of the playoffs. They controlled the entire game up until making 3 mistakes within 7 minutes which unfortunately cost them the game. 

 

Anyone would have thought by your spouting that the Wings had been swept. Let's not forget its 2-2 in a series that most ofd the media thought we wouldn't have a chance to even compete in. And Glendening has been huge. That 4th line has been excellent. There's a reason why the Johnson line has been shut down in this series, and you saw it right there in game 4. Mrazek has been superb, aside from game 2. Datsyuk has looked lost?? Really. Aside from Glendening he's been our best player in this series. Were you even watching game 1? 

 

Helm has been a non-factor? And how about you actually look at the fact that Glendening is a really good solid player instead of the fact that you think he looks better than you think he asctyually is because in your opinion, the rest of the team is s***? Well if the rest of the team is s***, then why aren't we outside of the playoffs looking in, or staring at an imminent defeat in the first round like so many predicted?

 

continue to share your opinion sir, and that is fine. But when you ignore the obvious and continue to bash the team that we all know and love, then i will disagree with you. Just because we don't ice a lineup made of all stars anymore and future hall of famers, doesn't mean we can't sit here and respect the effort and hard work this team has put in to make it this far. 

I was talking about Games 2-4 for Datsyuk. And if you think Detroit controlled the game after the 2nd goal they scored you were watching a completely different game. I saw a Tampa team on full court press taking shots with reckless abandon on Mrazek. Detroit was on its heels for almost half the game, they went into curse control and that's why they lost. 

 

But I will agree with one thing: Mrazek has pretty much run Howard out of town so far. He has been why this series is 2-2 not 4-0. If the Wings had any chance at the cup he would be the only choice for Conn Symthe.

Glendening is the biggest factor for us right now. It's unbelievable how much of an impact this man has

It's funny people actually believe this.

 

He's only the biggest factor because the rest of the team has looked like hot garbage most of the time. Datsyuk looks lost, Z looks old, Helm has been a non-factor, Nyquist has one goal and not much else to show, Tatar has been pretty much a missing person and the defense, well lets not even get started on them.

 

The loss was not because of Glendening getting injured. They would have lost had he not. They lost because they spent just about every moment after they scored the second goal on their heels. Tampa controlled play and they scored 3 straight goals. It's that simple.
