In Topic: Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

Wow, guess we really are getting desperate for things to complain about eh? Who knew that beating the best team in the leaguer on the road wasn't good enough?

Because the old Wings team, they never blew leads, let alone lost games. Yes sir, 82-0-0 and a 16-0 run to the cup every playoffs

Its a sign of how much times have changed, that I would take a loss against the Avs tonight, if we get to beat the Pens next week.

I think you are hitting the nail on the head, Kip. Plus, the timing of his injury had to put a cramp on the development curve. How many games did he miss? Plus, how long did it take him to get to full game conditioning one he was playing? He basically lost all he'd gained from the prospects camp, etc. and then some. I think he will be fine once he gets over the curve you mentioned. Plus, he is playing against bigger and more experienced players than he did in the Q.

 

I don't think we should underestimate the effect missing training camp and the start of the season can have on a player.  Over the years plenty of guys - vets, star players - who get injured in pre-season take months to get back in form when they come back.  Imagine you're a kid playing in your first pro season.  Mantha gets a semi-mulligan from me for that.
