Our pp sucks and we continue to not play smith on it for some unknown reason

They seemed to be switching a lot. At the start Smith was with Kronner, then Ericsson was with Kindl and DD was with Quincy. Hard to say. They changed around frequently. The big thing tonight was how quick the Wings transition was. Forwards came back and made it really easy for the D to move the puck up and out via passing rather then dumping it out like last year. Our team is playing with much more structure, speed and confidence AS A UNIT compared to last year. I really like what I am seeing.


On a side note, where are all the people who wanted to vote Zetty off the island the other night? Those of us who have faith told you not to worry about Hank. And lastly, that Nyquist guy is pretty good! Haha. Hopefully the boys can get it done tomorrow night and it will be a HUGE weekend!

My NHL gamecenter says the game is being blacked out for me tonight despite the fact that I was able to watch the season opener last week just fine. The game is on FSN so I should have no issues watching it since I am from Europe?! I HATE gamecenter!

A couple things. We were playing a desperate Boston team that simply wanted the win more than we did tonight. We battled hard and it was ugly but at least we got a point out of it. 1-1-1 isn't a bad way to start the season having played against the best 2 teams from last season (without even having our best player)! 


- Z had an offffffff night. He is human, get over it. He is a stand up guy he will be the first to admit it and he will get better, no worries there

- Franzen was back to playing the role of Casper

- Jimmy had a great game and is the only reason we got a point. He needs to work on breakaway though because I find what he does too often is just go down on his stomach and hopes the puck hits him

- If I am the coach and I get a 4 on 3 PP to end the game on, I put the players that got us there on the ice... the guys who have it going tonight. I would go Z (you can't not put him on the ice come on), Nyquist and Tatar out there with Kronner or Danny D. Nyquist and Tatar NEEDED to be out there because they are the ones who have had tons of energy and actually generating chances and scoring goals. I am SICK of Franzen just being given ice time for no reason.


All in all I am happy with the point and I know Z will be far better then that against the Laughs on the weekend.

People bashing Z are hilarious. Pretty sure he has earned enough to have a bad game every now and then he is human. He is a workhorse and I am not worried at all that he will find his game and getting Pav back soon will no doubt help him. 


BTW what an awful lazy play by Kindl he sucks.
