Things that are better than the Wings special teams.

27 January 2013 - 11:27 PM

It's 5 games in and the recurring theme for the 2013 Wings thus far seems to be their ineptitude on S/T. This is just a fun thread to see what kind of stuff people come up with.

1- The Pro Bowl
2- White Dude Rock (Nickelback, Seether, etc.)

KHL/Overseas Games

23 September 2012 - 11:15 AM

Per Pavel Lysenkov (@plysenkov) on Twitter, Pavel will be playing with CSKA tomorrow.

Since we're all ready for our hockey fix I guess we need to find ways to follow our players oversees.

Does anyone have any idea or info where to find these games, highlights, articles etc to help better follow?

I would definitely love to see how much all of these guys are going to dominate the KHL in what we hope will be a short stint.

Favorite Moments of 11-12 season.

A bit premature to post this as we are all still in our early exit rampage, but even though the season ended in a disastrous fashion, it offered some cool stuff as well.

What were your favorite moments?

- I finally got to see the Wings play, not once but twice :-). Home opener against Ottawa and the drubbing in Montreal.
- in those games, I got to see Datsyuk and most importantly, Lidstrom. I drooled more from my third row seats during warm ups than I did my front row seats at Katy Perry last summer :-).
- Filppula's regular season emergence. I've always liked him so it was good to see him produce on both sides of the ice.
- The ongoing Datsyuk highlight reel. Unreal.
- Finally getting the nerve to chat with you guys after almost a decade of lurking. Most of you are pretty cool and I hope it continues.

Nashville and this series.

3-1 isn't the end of the world, but let's face it, the team knows it, we know it... They're lifeless.

Aside from the Weber hit and non-suspension, Nashville showed up and the Wings continued their bad play down the stretch. The bad officiatting went both ways.

While losing to "little brother" sucks, this series was decided at the deadline when Nashville actually took the initiative to make moves and build on their potential. The Wings chose not to and it bit them.

As hard as it is to admit, Nashville is the better team right now from top to bottom. I won't root for them by any means, but I just wanted to give them credit where it is due.

Here is your wake up call, Wings Brass, the rest of the league has officially caught up to you.

I'm sure it's quite obvious that Lidstrom has been all but non-existent in this series. We all know that he is still hampered by his ankle injury and wouldlikely be missing more time to nurse it if not for the playoffs. He is not playing on the all important PK, has been lacking on the offensive side and has been effective on 5-on-5 but nothing spectacular.

This isn't a headhunting thread but this season and series has been a kick in the face that the end may be sooner than later. While he started out strong he slowed down later in the season and missed a rare significant amount of time with an injury.

What does be look at when he decides it he's going to keep this thing going? He's still playing at a high level and warrants respect every time he's on the ice not only because of his play but because of the name on the back of his jersey. He's done all there is to do and will go down as one of the all time greats. Looking at the last few seasons, particularly this one, this team is closer to taking a step back than contending.

I know he's not going to make a knee jerk decision like us fans, but what are your thoughts in his decision making in the offseason?
