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.
Has anyone noticed that the Wings can't even complete a pass? It's like the second they get the puck on their stick they just have to throw it to the player furthest up the ice.
I'm worried it's just Blash's system at this point. The players are hustling, they're not being lazy, they're just making terrible s***ty plays. Defensive zone coverage is awful and no one has any puck support. All other teams have to do is rush the puck carrier and we do something stupid with it and turn it over every time.
I really feel bad for him, I was actually excited to see how he does this season, I was optimistic. He seemed really energized to play in the few games he was in. He shouldn't play again until he goes a few months without symptoms instead of just a couple weeks.
I think he has a good point but Detroit is in a unique situation. A) it's more than just a new arena (it's a whole new neighborhood) and B) It's going in a blighted area. It's not just replacing something in the city, it's adding to the city. That is the difference.
This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes.
Agreed. Babcock is completely overrated. He has won at all levels, yeah, but he's had completely stacked teams. I could win at the Olympics if I had Canada's team. The Red Wings have completely underperformed with him as head coach. I don't even want Blashill if he is just like Babcock.
It appears that Babs has Mrazek in mind because he started him in the final and crucial game of the season. Not like Howie needed the rest. And plus, Mrazek played well, he got a shutout.
So, in light of the above, I put all my chips in and say that Babs puts Howie in net for game 1.
I think its petr, thats why he started sunday Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
It could also mean that he wanted to give Howard, his starter, extra rest before the playoffs started or that much less chance of getting injured. Or that he wanted to get one last look at Mrazek to help decide.
It's going to be Howard though, there is no doubt. Mrazek getting a shut on in the last game of the regular season against one of the worst teams really doesn't mean all that much.
