I wonder if our training staff is part of the problem. Some of the injuries are obviously not related to them but with the trend of the last few years I'm starting to wonder if they need to be looked at.
Jesus Christ some of you people are comical. Now Mike Ilitch is being brought into the conversation? What the hell is Ilitch supposed to do? Magically heal all of our injured players? I'm as frustrated as everyone but you know the Wings have EIGHT REGULARS out of the line up. NO team would be the same if that happened to them. Anaheim is fully healthy and they've been playing great all year, did you really expect a different outcome? If this was happening with everyone in the line up then you hit the panic button. I'm already to the point where I really don't care until this team gets 100% back to normal.
He shouldn't have been sitting by all these years letting Holland bring back washed up, old players, while not making significant trades or free agent acquisitions.
Not case and not point. That took place in a regular season game, and Laperriere tried to run Downey later on in the game. Downey did not play a single game of the playoff series between the two teams; Laperriere did, and his presence went unnoticed.
Your point has even less merit given that the game in question was the last of the season series between the two teams. Detroit won that one 4-0 also, by the way.
So in other words, Downey neutered Lapperrierre.
Thanks for proving our point.
Also, don't forget that McCarty and King Leonidas played for us in those playoffs.
ya thats true man but we had the 'it was a shortened season excuse" but ya been a while we been struggling but this season i find theres not too many games were scoring 2+ goals its been horrific
holland has prove hes got some magic still left in him and get rid of some of these wastes , maybe trade a few to a struggling team for someone who might be struggling there who might work here?? who knows but something
all i know is id like to see more ahl ready kids who are hungry and get a shot , id personally wanna see sheahan and callahan called up at the same time, sheahan is a big body (6'2)and callahan is an agitator who hits and be nice on the 4th
all i know is some changes need to be made
Exactly the kind of players Holland hasn't liked in the past. I'm glad he's finally drafting bigger players lately, but then he brings back guys like Sammy and Cleary when they're obviously not as effective as the young guns.
