Babcock said Marchenko will play in Game 1 of playoffs.

 

 

I'm guessing Smith is the odd man out.

The D will have a major overhaul this off season wether we get into the playoffs or not. I foresee at least 3 changes on the blue line for next season and we will ship out 2 of the current D corps.

..and tell me again, when Stevie was near the end, how many times we either had to scratch and claw to just make the playoffs or were in danger of backing our way out of the playoffs?  Let alone tell me when Stevie would have sat because of an injury that he couldn't just "ice up" and play, especially when it comes down to two of the most important games of the year which would have more than likely secured the playoffs.  I am not questioning Dats contributions to this team or his ability to still be an impact player.  I am questioning the entire leadership philosophy of this team, starting with him. Z says he's 100%, so why are we to believe that he isn't? He just is what he is anymore, more than a shell, but nowhere near what he was 5-6 years ago, but hey, he is older and not as good anymore.  The problem is, these "leaders" today will even sit out a playoff game with nagging injuries, even elimination games, Stevie, Shanny, Hull, Feds, Igor, Nick would have NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER done so.

 

Disrespect my ass, the fact is, he makes $7M tof****** take this team to the playoffs, not sit because his ankle hurts, again, THEY MAKE SHOTS THAT TAKE CARE OF NAGGING PAINS!!! If his ankle was broken, I understand, but a sore ankle? Gimme a break! In my job, I am working in small places lifting and throwing things all day long, if my back hurts do I get time off? NO! I get to take 2 alieve and get the f*** back in the hole!

 

This isn't December anymore, these games are pretty much game 6's and 7's for us, this team needs leadership to lead! All this blaming Jimmy and Petr is stupid, Petr played well enough last night to win, he had 1 bad goal, but the D (Q especially) let him down in the end.  Even Patrick had bad goals against him, even Hasek.  Itsf****** time for the leaders to inspire this team, if keeping this streak alive isn't important to the leaders of this team, to keep history going, to keep this organization talked about among the elite teams off al time, thenf****** retire and let other players who want to preserve history and keep this team excelling take over!  Sure, 1st round exits suck, and no way this team is favored to win a Cup this year, but you have to get to round 1 in order to have a chance....f*** letting the streak go, if this team cannot win a Cup every year, then damn it, isn't it important enough to have something to brag and be proud of?  The streak is on the line, if they miss this year, they will never get anywhere near it again.  I want to Cup too, but if we can't win it, why just say f*** the playoffs? Those of you who don't care about making the playoffs year after year will never be happy, because for you its the Cup or tank.

 

I will take a first round sweep over completely missing the playoffs.

Ugh....I truly believe I am watching the worst hockey played in Detroit since 1989... Still plenty of games left to stay in the playoffs, but these two games would have solidified or at least made it VERY hard to fall out...

 

...I am very disappointed in the leadership on this team.  You got Drew Miller who was nearly sliced in half playing with his heart on his sleeve and we cannot even get our leaders to play with a sore shoulder.  Z just looks gassed, he cannot even play an entire game anymore.  D is atrocious...really, Q absolutely took the wind out of the sail tonight. Sure it was a cheap call, but you knew the refs were looking to give Boston a PP and he should have known to not even give them anything to look at...then the 2nd goal, WTF was Q doing? Watching the puck and not paying attention to the player behind him. 

 

All in all, the team started out great! Huge pressure, goal post, forcing turnovers, making plays....then the 3rd came. Ugh...

 

Petr was the first star all game long until the s***astic go ahead goal.  I love ya Petr, and I am sure Jimmy would've given up more goals all game long, but that last goal was a gimme...oh well, should've never had to come down to one bad goal, team should've put Boston away earlier...

 

Still....WTF is the use of Pulk in the middle on the PP?  He is in the middle of 4 defenders, how the f*** is he going to get a shot off from there? We ALL know where he should be on the PP, but NO! They put Z there all night! 

 

If Dats isn't in against Minny, then f*** him, go on LTIR....boo hoo my shoulder hurts, mother f*****, Drew Miller almost got scalped and he played and played very well!  Suck it up Pav! This team needs you to lead by example, if you don't give a s***, why should they?

helm is horrible....sorry, it's true.

Helm is great, he's just not supposed to be a skilled scorer.

Wait, What? Our top pair d-men are bad? Well according to Babcock, Ericsson is our top line pairing guy.  Guess we cannot argue that then, can we? IMO, neither Ericsson nor Kronwall are legit top pairing guys.  Kronwall has no balls anymore, he needs to go back to being the Kronwaller than makes him effective, not this soft piece of jelly donut he has turned into.  Ericsson is, will and never was a top pairing  guy, it is still of my opinion, he could disappear today and Marchenko could step right into the lineup and Ericsson would not even be missed.  But I digress, because Babcock is "The Man" with the best hockey knowledge out there and knows how to put lines together in order to guarantee the best results! Sure had to love that Tatar-Andersson- Pukkinen line the last couple of games, what an insult to Tats and Pulkks...

Andersson Weiss line challenges for the worst line in hockey. And not just in the NHL.

Anyone care to clear the front of the net? I'm so sick of Glendening and Miller.

Weiss out = good thing. He brings nothing to this team sorry to say. He's slow doesn't have a shot no moves no speed no strength stinks on pp can't pk what's he getting 5m for???

 

Where was this when he was helping win us games when he scored 13 points in 17 games? Oh yea, exactly. Small sample sizes around here.

Marchenko had another solid game. Really impressed by him so far.

I'm surprised the arena is so quiet with all those red jerseys in the crowd.

Clown shoes on a drunk baby giraffe. That's all I've got.


It was boys amongst men out there. I don't even want to know if Lucic and Bergeron were in the line up. That was terrible. Boy this  team just doesn't look good right now.

 

Had Lucic and Bergeron been in the lineup, the Wings probably would've won. This is how it tends to work with the Wings.
