#2448317 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by Dabura on 27 October 2013 - 10:53 AM

Maybe we're over-thinking this.


Our roster is relatively thin (compard to what we're used to). Maybe it's as simple as that. We could do all that crazy high-scoring puck-possession stuff before because, well, we could - i.e. we had the requisite skill, talent, moxy. Now we can't because, well, we can't.


Is it a mere coincidence that 1) this is the weakest lineup we've had in maybe twenty years, and 2) we're looking absolutely lost?

Well an expectedly terrible end to that terrible game. 


I don't want us to win an OT game until Babcock puts Tatar out there, and Nyquist when he gets up. 


Like, does he remember the OT goal Brunner and Nyquist combined for? He trusted them in the OT in the playoffs but he can't trust Tatar in a regular season OT? 


As for the game as a whole, wow. A half-decent 1st period, a pretty good PP, but just about nothing to be glad about otherwise. Well Howard was great and Tatar, if nothing else, shows he deserves to play by the way he chases the puck and skates harder than just about anyone else. 


We have work to do, lots of it.

Awful home stand in every regard. 


Get Nyquist up immediately. It's beyond ridiculous at this point seeing how limited this team is offensively.

I'll be shocked if Kyle Quincey scores a goal this year, couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, christ.

Why be surprised?  This was a .500 team last season.  


Not like we signed Crobsy and Chara in the offseason.  

yeah but we DID sign a guy who now wears Malkin's jersey #


that's pretty much the same thing as signing Malkin himself, right? Right?

if im zetterberg im breaking my stick over clearys head and going to the locker room. might be a reason i would never make a good captain but it might send a good message to the other players

Tatar looks great. Skates hard and drives to the net.

so it's probably about time that Babs sends him back down, then


you know, for more seasoning

I just want someone on the Wings to hit someone on the Avs hard... is that too much to ask? Also, Gus is playing great.

#2443404 is anyone happy right now?

Babcock is handcuffing this team. Having a terrible special teams year in and year out, with all the talent on this team, falls on coaching. Being unprepared against a Pheonix team after playing a disgusting game of hockey with 4 days off is a coaching issue. These lines are ridiculous players are being to asked to fill a role that they just can't and no adjustments get made. We were being outplayed from the start of the game to the end and no adjustments were made to lines that were consistently getting scored on and creating no offence. I blame Babcock just as much as Holland for these ridiculous signings because you know he has a major influence.


Cleary, Bertuzzi and Saumelsson are brutal signings that have destroyed the growth of this team. What's worse is that Babcock chooses to play these guys every night. Ridiculous

Babcock isn't doing a good job these first 4 games. These lines are pathetic. Last year the wings success to end the season I think was in despite of the lines and Babcock really. Special teams have been awful the last 4 years and star players numbers are declining big time

They were both lucky rebounds that came directly to him.


Like Zetterberg and Weiss then?


Seriously guys, so he didn't sign for us?  Just let it go.
