In Topic: Larkin for ...

27 November 2015 - 08:07 PM

I wouldn't trade Larkin for anyone in the league without some incentive (like a pick or another player). Why do it? It's his first time playing in the NHL and he's leading our team in goals. He's 19.

Wings schedule the past week:


Friday: Game

Saturday: Game

Sunday: Off

Monday: Game

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: Game

Thursday: Off

Friday: Game

Saturday: Game


6 games in 9 days. With all the back to backs, the Wings really have a s***ty schedule this season. I think their record would be better if this crap wasn't like this, and I think it's kind of bulls***.

This is the problem. How do we fix it? Is it about making more space - and we do we need for that, more speed? I don't know. But hitting the backboards and the posts seems like it's becoming a theme.


Teams always have way more shot attempts than actual shots, it's the way of the game. The problem isn't their shot accuracy it's that they have terrible possession numbers. They're at the bottom of the league in shots attempts per game as well and it's because they never have the puck because they can't complete a pass 80% of the time.

Puck movement is 100% of the Red Wings problem right now. Their defense has actually been good but they're really bad at getting the puck out of the zone and through the neutral zone which is giving the other team the puck and they spend too much time in their own zone. They're not generating any offense because they can't get the puck to each other and sustain some offensive pressure. This is the problem. If they can start moving the puck better they'll start winning games.


This is also most likely a coaching issue with respect to new systems. Coaching either needs to make adjustments or players need to start getting used to/better at the system. Most likely a combination of both.


If they can fix the puck movement issue they'll be a powerhouse.

s***ty game in Edmonton but at least the weekend was good. 3 points out of 4 with our s***ty schedule is something to be proud of.
