#2222688 Thoughts on tonight's game/Season outlook

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 November 2011 - 09:32 AM

The last time the Wings lost six games in a row was the year they won the Stanley Cup.

82 games equals a long season, which is exactly what teams need to work through funks that inevitably happen to everyone.


Back then we had Hasek and Osgood.

Now we have Howard "The Duck" and Ty Conklin.

It's gotten to the point where some of this has to fall on Nick Lidstrom's shoulders; he is the Captain, he is the leader, yet this ship looks rudderless and heartless.

There; I said it.


Meanwhile, Crosby continues to lead his team to success without even playing!

1) what impressed you about commie tonight? he's a great shot-blocker, but man...i don't know if a reclamation's going to be possible. he's just too, too slow. if it came to it, i'd personally feel better with janik out there.

2) i guess there were some things you didn't agree with too. no pav with val. huds on the 2nd line. bert dressing. abby not being recognized.

3) i wouldn't mind a guy like worrell.


I wonder how you play hockey video games?

Do you pause the game every other shift to change lines?


And Commodore looked better than Kronwall and Stuart tonight. Also, line combos don't matter if half the team has no desire and is full of lazy floaters. There won't be any sudden magic and spark.

I agree. Here's what I'd do.

Franzen - Datsyuk - Holmstrom
Hudler - Zetterberg - Filppula
Abdelkader - Helm - Cleary
Worrell - Emmerton - Bertuzzi


Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Commodore

F*** YOU Aaaron Downey.

For giving us the Cup in 2008 and spoiling the tough guy fans.

At least this losing streak is making LGW a more entertaining place to be.

F*** YOU Carey Price. For playing for the Canadiens instead of us.

Wow.

Starting to wonder how long it'll be before they make a trade just to mix things up and send a message. What's nuts to me isn't so much that we're losing so much as that these games are all close and they're not playing that poorly. It's not as if there's this huge mess, but something isn't clicking. Given that we really don't have countless holes due to injuries like we did in the past when we'd have these losing streaks, you've got to wonder what's going on out there and in their heads. They look lost.

And again, the whole situation is just bizarre; it's too mundane to panic, yet there's blatantly something missing from this team. I don't know if it's chemistry or confidence or what, but they really need to turn it around fast. I don't buy the whole concern about being in playoff position in November or December even, but if they don't get it together fast and get a streak going in the other direction, we're going to have absolutely no wiggle room when our late-winter injury spell inevitably creeps up. I'd rather not be up against the wall with the team as is let alone a bunch of AHL fill ins.

As Mike Milbury would say, this is just Eurotrash hockey right here.

Well, look at the bright side. If the Wings continue their spiral down the toilet, maybe the bandwagon and fairweather fans will take a vacation from the forums and the games. That will result in better hockey talk among the real fans.


You mean you and Crymson?

Even Crymson thinks we're doomed right now.

If they don't score on this PP, then I'm switching off my GameCenter app.


Beavis & Butt-Head is on tonight.

No, I'm not talking about Franzen and Bertuzzi.

Can we at least goon it up here since we don't seem intent on winning?

Et tu, Kronwall?

The referees in pro wrestling are more authentic than this.
