I'm still upset that no one went after Fistric last night. Even more so than losing the game.

If your friend gets hit with a cheap shot, wouldn't you step in there and retaliate against the SOB that did it? Every other team does that, but we don't. No one seemed to care whatsoever, which doesn't show much solidarity.

Now I know the anti-enforcer slappies will point out how Franzen's injury wouldn't have been prevented by retaliation, but still it sucks that this team is so unwilling to stick up for one another in a situation like that.

Osgood should just throw off his mask, jump Ribeiro, and start pounding his head into the ice, all the while howling like a werewolf. :cool:

That would make this game for me.

As long as the Mule is fine I could care less about this game. Ozzie was in net, I wasn't expecting much. Anytime we can with him in net is a bonus. I thought Howard should have started.


Ozzie played better in his last start than Howard did in his.

I don't blame Babcock for starting Ozzie.

Give it up, Doc.

Every goal last night was deflected, including the one in the shootout.

Ah, yes. The season has begun, and so has the entitled whining of Doc Holliday. Unsurprising.

Neither team played very well; I'm not angry with the one point.


Don't be such a wannabee mod.

No one is saying we're sunk. People are just upset we didn't show up and still suck at shootouts as always.

They should have let Maltby shoot for old time's sake.

None of us here would hate shootouts, if the Wings didn't suck so badly at them.

Every goalie slappy around here will be quick to point out how every goal is seemingly deflected.

If it was deflected, it wasn't much of a change in direction. Howard has to stop that shot.

It wasn't that great of a shot. Bad angle, and Howard did not look like he was in good butterfly to stop it.

His body language after the goal doesn't help, either.


GMR: Filpulla has been giving them blocked shots. They have hardly had to try with Val taking up the role of shinguard assassin.



That makes sense with non-butterfly goaltenders and with shots that redirect from the point. Neither of those happened here.

The butterfly is meant to cut off those kinds of goals if done correctly, and Howard did not do it well enough. If it had deflected over the shoulder that is another story, but it went right underneath where his glove was supposed to be.



Yeah, Flip is better at passing first, but he did score a few goals in his last game.

Meanwhile, Franzen has one of the most accurate wristshots in the league when it comes to picking corners.

I'll miss seeing him out there, but he did what's best for the team.

It was very exciting watching that Grind Line out there kicking ass. Draper will be lonely now.

You know, I may jump ship after this signing.

Hawks fans can blame the goalie all they want, but that's how they won the Cup last year.

Because of Leighton's awful goaltending.

Yeah, Kopecky is still a total idiot out there.

He belongs on the 3rd line, not on the 1st.

Man pretty lucky win for Detroit. Unbelievable.


That's what I was thinking when that banner was being raised for the first time in like 60 years.

You're lucky we had so many injuries last year, or else this game would have taken place at the JLA.

I hope these idiot fans get used to this sight.

Ozzie stole this game for us, despite posters amazingly blaming him earlier in the game.
