I agree with patience. Yes he is struggling, but he's still a solid player and I believe he will find his way. Having Pavel, Z, Weiss, Helm down the middle is as deep as it gets.

Look, all I can think of with the Wings these days is the line from Forrest Gump:


"Life (insert Wings) are like a box of chocolates, you never know what (insert who) you're gonna get".

This is just awful news


That it is. Especially because it likely means he's out for at least a week, in accordance with The Protocol. (I love that it's called "the protocol.")


On the "bright" side: 1) he's old and could use the rest, and 2) he and Z have been carrying this team on their backs, so now everyone's gonna have to step up, no more freeloading, no more underachieving, no more sucking.

Sometimes it takes an ugly, greasy road win to get things turned around and going in the right direction

Woooohoooo a win! Gustavsson had a great game despite the low amount of shots. He stopped a ton of quality chances including the penalty shot. I think he should be in against Boston and keep him in for a while. Let Howard work his way back into his starting spot. (Not saying Monster is better than Howard, but Howie can't seem to win games)

Yeah, I know it was only the Sabres, but we did just about enough to beat them.  Monster was strong, Tatar was noticable every shift, Alfredsson plays with such poise, and even Mule was making things happen out there.

Imo a pretty solid road-game considering it was a back-to-back. Not great by any means but Gustavsson was great when he needed to be, the PP was good and we didn't really give them more than 1 goal. That's what we gotta keep doing, not giving 2-3 easy goals to every team. If they have to fight for it themselves we'll beat these bad teams easily. 


Tatar, Smith and Nyquist have been 3 of our best players these 2 games. Alfie was really good tonight too.

We may be bad, but we're not Buffalo Bad!

I'm so confused. I didn't even know that Red Wings were allowed to score goals after the second period.
Consider my mind blown

Posted by Kira on 24 November 2013 - 11:52 AM

WTF is wrong with this team??? Their top player and arguably the best in the world gets elbowed in the head and not one sorry ass player does anything about it. I don't care if there is a suspension or not what i want to see is the team stand up for themselves and one another at the point when the incident happens, there is something fundamentally wrong with this team and their principles. Illitch should just relocate them to Sweden and let them play over there and Holland will be the happiest man alive. Im sorry to derail the thread but it infuriates me to watch this team and their complete lack of heart and toughness.      

 Just remember, the one person who would have stood up for him got demoted to GR because they absolutely had to have Cleary here.  And now look at what it has cost us.  Just get well quick, sweetie...that's all we can ask.

Haha, you're being optimistic here.  Teams don't need to get all chippy to beat the Red Wings.  Just playing regular old hockey will do.  But it does make me feel better to think that teams will have to do something special to beat us, rather than just show up and wait for our team to blow the game late in the third.


See above.


Todd McLellan and Paul MacLean know exactly how to beat us.  Play physical and intimidate, it's worked for years.

Let's just hope that this is for precautionary reasons.


Get well Dats!!


Well, he used The Words ("the protocol"), so it looks like that's exactly what it is.


And, really, for Dats to say he feels...fuzzy (if that is indeed what he was going for)...it's the right call.


Maybe someone steps up in his absence. (Stop laughing! It could happen!)
