Didn't read all the posts but highlight of night was the "let's go red wings" chants after Helm's second goal then getting drowned out by the boos. Great support tonight at ACC!

Phaneuf just awful again tonight, -3, captain of the team, makes a lot more money than Kronwall. 


Just wanted to toss that little fact out there.

He was. Not only in numbers, he was also on the ice on Helms shorthander which might be one of the worst defensive plays I ever saw.  It's their D that is the problem, not their goalie. Sounds familiar somehow.....

13% chance of Leafs making the playoffs 


So you're telling me there's a chance?

Good thing Jimmy never makes a big save...

Everyone keeps saying Weiss is coming back, did I miss something here?

Apparently he skated the last two days and will practice with the team on Tuesday. So hoping he can get going because he is a good player I don't care what anyone says if he can get going.

I really hope we do get to see a healthy Weiss this year. The Wings really need to know what type of player he is. If he is still a shell of his former self, then we have some (limited) options for getting rid of him this summer, and keeping Legwand, who is a better, potentially cheaper version of Weiss.


If Weiss is healthy and rejuvenated and starts making an impact then we hang on to him, but I don't want to have the same problem as this year where we start the season with ten thousand forwards signed.


Very happy about the positive news on Datsyuk, I just hope he's fully healthy this time.

It's really hard to say that they would be better with Datsyuk or Zetterberg, my point being that since we don't have access to a world where Z and D were healthy, it's impossible to say that the team would be in a better position or not.


That's like saying it's impossible to say whether life without one of your arms would be good or bad because it hasn't happened.  Sure, but you can speculate with a pretty high degree of logical validity.  Datsyuk and Zetterberg are two of the best players in the world.  It's always better to have them than not have them...just like both your arms.

After 73 games:


Datsyuk has played 39 games.

Zetterberg has played 45 games.

Both have been out at the same time for a big chunk of time.

Every player projected to be even a semi-regular center has missed at least 12 games, Andersson is the only one who has played more than 45.

Miller, Quincey, and Kronwall are the only players to have played 70 or more games.

Tatar and Lashoff, along with the three above, are the only players to have missed fewer than 10 games.

Nyquist and Tatar are the two leading goal scorers.

They have dressed 30 skaters and have had 11 rookies dress.


If you had been told those facts at the beginning of the year, haw many games out of the playoffs would you think they'd be right now?  I would have figured close to the bottom of the division.  Instead, if the season ended today they would be in the playoffs.


I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty proud of what this team has accomplished, even if it's not what past teams have been able to do.

He also had an absolutely horrible giveaway that lead directly to Colorado's second goal.


It's not all rainbows and puppies.



shhh... not too loud, reason and logic are null and void in some parts around here

Sheahan has been fantastic. Tatar has been struggling for sure. 


Sheahan has turned into a fantastic passer, I wasn't expecting his passing game to be that advanced.

Gus was doing pretty well with Franzen and coincidently Franzen was doing great with Gus. Jurco on the other hand was doing great on the kids line. I just feel like putting those two lines back together will help with Jurco's comfort level, and hopefully playing with Gus will get Franzen hot.


I agree but I would also like to see what Jurco can bring for that line.  He's a high energy guy who should make more room for Mule to get into shooting positions.

Toby Enstrom. Not saying he would have made sweden though

He wouldn't have made it and that's why he decided to opt out beforehand.

Columbus scores 2 and I swear half the forum members were on their way out.


Detroit scores to bring it within 1 and everyone comes back.


Less drama ladies!
