Why cant we do s*** like that?


Cause we'd just hit shinpads and goalie crests with our shots.

We had McCarty, Drake and Maltby on the '08 team. We need guys like those.


And Downey toughened up our soft euros during the regular season, to ready them in time for the playoffs.

Me too. a pure goal scorer sure would have come in handy this series.


Did you watch Hossa's playoffs here in 2009?

#2291629 What are the odds of winning this series now?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 April 2012 - 10:07 PM

We may win game 5 and game 7, but there's no way we can win game 6 on home ice.

Can't believe Howard is getting a pass here.

If he doesn't give up that 2nd goal, I think we comeback and win this game. The JLA was rocking after that Hudler goal. Howard killed the momentum. Yeah the D screwed up the coverage, but he didn't have to join them. I still don't know what he was doing.

In the end, there's just no scoring depth. Miller and Eaves can score, but Eaves is out and Miller is playing on a line centered by Abdelkader. Abdelkader is effective as a winger but ineffective as a center. Nyquist is not yet big enough or experienced enough to make an impact. Holmstrom and Emmerton are generally ineffective; neither can really check or score. It's a shame that Helm is out, but really he's had the quality of a 4th-line center this season; he's not an effective scorer. And so on.

Rinne has been excellent, as has the defense for the Predators. The big guns for the Wings have been inexplicably silent. This may be the combination of the aforementioned factors. Tough to say.


We have more talent on paper than Nashville does. Way more.

The problem has been on the ice and in the effort. Not just the names and depth or line combos, etc.

You don't put Hockeytown on your logo at center ice and then settle for mediocrity.

Four of the last five playoff series we've started on the road, and this will be our 3rd straight exit before in early rounds.

Yet our GM did s*** about it when anyone could see from a mile away that this team needed a spark.

I've never seen such bad luck. Unreal.


Bad luck? Did a polar bear skate on the ice and chase Howard out of his net? Or did bad luck cause Stuart to misplay another situation behind the net?

Don't confuse bad luck with stupidity and laziness. This team just isn't good enough anymore.

Despite what Holland said.

This is sad.

The Wings have become a mediocre NHL team.

Where the f*** were White and Howard going on that goal??? Seriously


Hopefully to Ontario to play for another team.

It's gotten stale.


Like I said above, it's too late.
