God Z is useless. Getting outplayed by Andersson with an easier assignment. This is a new low for the Red Wings watching him adjust as the Dan Cleary of unearned ice time

Playoffs is where everyone digs deeper and back checks and we got guys who physically can't. 50/50 puck goes in the corner and Z doesn't even attempt to go after it

I think Z's problem is he has so many people around him that respect him so much he thinks his play has been satisfactory

Any lineup changes I'll add to the OP later on. Let's hope that this isn't Datsyuk's last game. LGRW.

They have played almost 4 full seasons of playoff games in those 25 years. Crazy.

My wife is in the recovery room now. Everything went well. Here's hoping the boys fill the Tampa Bay net with the surgical precision my wife's Dr. had today.

Let's Go Wings!

Why does this guy's line have to tear the Wings up every year? (well, last year and this one... but I am sure its becoming a trend, just like Ben Bishop becoming the greatest goalie in the history of Hockey when he faces Detroit.).

Mrazek Interview - 

 

What were you thinking what you grabbed Smith in bear hug to keep him from retaliating on Coburn?

“I try just to hold him a little bit just so he don’t bump him and get two minutes and it would be four or four. They would probably pull the goalie so I try to just hold him se we’d get the power play.”

 

Mrazek knows his boy Smith too well.

Agreed 100%, something about his face makes me want to punch it, or see it punched. Reminds me of a Brad Marchand or Alex Burrows type, one of those spot-picking, non-stop chirping, pain in the @$$ guys that seems to particularly enjoy rubbing it in the faces of the opposing team and their fans. Too bad he wasn't the one Abby got a hold of to pound on at the end of game 2. Now that Blash is matching him up against that line, perhaps we will still get to see it. I'd go so far as to say all would be forgiven if Ericsson were to administer the beatdown.

Please lower Z's icetime. He isn't that guy anymore. They need to get him on a nice PED program in the offseason

I agree with you, despite my hilarious jokes about Andersson - he is surprisingly not our savior, or a Conn Smythe candidate at this point... Jurco is probably better suited for the 4th line especially because Andersson hasn't even been playing Center. That question comes down to Blashill's opinion of who is better defensively.

 

In terms of a rotating in Smith to jump start our team... We. Didn't. Play. A. Bad. Game.

 

We lost by a goal, to the defending Eastern Conference Champions in their building... We had 36 shots on goal, and a number quality scoring chances that could have easily gone in: I can think of Sheahan, Nyquist, Datsyuk, and Green missing the net on golden opportunities. If we play like that again tonight, we probably win - and If we did win on Wednesday, which was a hell of a lot better than the game 1 (we won) last year - this thread doesn't get to 9 pages. 

WE. LOST. Close doesn't count. We lost to wounded team missing their 2 best players.

I was a huge fan of Blashill with the Griffins and when he got hired as the new head coach of the Red Wings I was very excited to see what he could do. The main reason being, I loved the way he managed his roster down in Grand Rapids and put the kids in great positions to succeed. Things started out great with Larkin making the roster, and we all thought, this is the changing of the guard. We're finally going to start transitioning from the vets to the youth. For whatever reason, somewhere along the way, that changed. We started going back to the same old well, and leaning on the vets yet again. I'm not sure what caused him to revert back to the ways of old, if there was pressure from management to keep the streak alive or what. Regardless of when it happened or why it happened, there's no question that there have been major misusage of players for parts of this season, and especially down this last stretch.

I'm of the mindset set now that we've made the playoffs, we've kept the streak alive, we're not expected to go deep, now is the time to start playing for the future. We need to get these kids in the lineup to get them some valuable playoff experience, as well as potentially give us a better shot at winning. I'm okay with Mantha playing big minutes down in Grand Rapids, if that's what management believe is the best for his development. What I'm not okay with is Andersson in the lineup in any capacity over Jurco. And don't try to spin this as me saying that Jurco is the answer to our offensive woes (like some did with the Mantha debate), because (again) I'm not. What I am saying is that Jurco is just as good defensively, can also kill penalties and is about 100 times better offensively. Andersson is not an NHL calibre player and should not be anywhere close to this roster.

The defense has been abysmal at best, and Blash decided to make a change, he switched Ericsson and Quincey. Yup, that should really jump start this team... Instead of inserting Smith in, you switch two defensive defensemen, expecting some huge change? What a joke...

Big E actually has a decent track record in the playoffs. Remember how good he was in the 09 cup run?

 

We won the Cup in 2009?
