Wings win 22-0


Tootoo with all 22 goals as well as the Jackets losing tonight which in turn allows us to clinch our 22nd straight playoff birth.

Posted this before the last game and it worked out nicely. Might as well do it again.

I won't give up hope until they are mathematically eliminated. We just have to take it one game at a time. I just hope the crowd is in it until the end and doesn't start booing if we give up the first goal or something.

#2386414 Tatar frustrated; says he will only play in NHL when contract done

Watching Dan Cleary play instead of him makes me sick to my stomach, every game.


Couldn't agree more. Watching Cleary play period is like watching paint dry. He is so washed up.

To blame Jimmy for this loss would imply that the team in front of him deserved to win.


They scored (for all intents and purposes) ONE GODDAMN GOAL.




Not Jimmy's fault.


I'm not saying the loss is Jimmy's fault but we probably would have gotten at least one point if his head was actually in the game.


For all intents and purposes calgary scored ONE GODDAMN GOAL




by your logic and it would have gone to OT.

#2385106 Playoff race vs. race for #1 pick.

I want to keep the streak alive. The record is 29 years and I believe we could reach that mark if we just survive and retool for another year or two and squeak in.

Why oh why is #16 not in the rafters yet? What are they waiting for? They should do it while he is still young enough to enjoy it in person.


This is great news though. Vladdy is in my top 3 favorite Wings of all time.

I'd like to hear someone stand up and guarantee this team makes a playoff spot. Maybe someone like Hank who won't let the streak be broken on his watch as first year as captain. Even if they don't make it, this team needs a spark and they really don't seem to be playing with one.

Yes to Tootoo and Tatar but he hasn't had enough time


Z has been inconsistent


Brunner can't keep up with the intensity and physicality of the NHL


Lashoff is ok for what he is


Andersson so-so


not impressed with any of them


Lol so I guess you were expecting 20+ goals from Brunner this shortened season. He has kept up fine with the physicality. He hasn't been getting pushed off the puck and has 11 goals in 35 games so far which we would take from any rookie. Oh and I guess Lashoff was supposed to be the second coming of Lids in his rookie season. There was absolutely no reason to expect any more from these two players than they have shown thus far.

#2380794 Ilitch is being cheap with the Wings now that the Tigers are good.

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 05 April 2013 - 02:28 PM

It's no denying Illitch would rather have a world series ring versus one or two more stanley cup rings but to say he is spending money on the Tigers that could otherwise be spent on the Wings probably isn't true. There is no cap in baseball so he treats them like he used to treat the Wings. He has to be more careful about his spending with the Wings and pick his purchases a lot more wisely. Even if it isn't actually him making the decisions on who to sign, he still signs the checks. So I don't agree with you saying Mr. I is being cheap with the Wings. He is just dying for a world series ring... no pun intended.

I called the loss... I just didn't think they had it in them to keep up the consistency. Hopefully they can get back in the W column these next two games at home.

What's with all the Monster hate on here? He played lights out the one game he came in place of Jimmy when he wasn't expected and he got left out to dry the latest game in the 3rd. As much as he isn't Jimmy, he can still be a capable back-up and provide this team with the chance to win. The team just needs to show up in front of him also.


I don't think most are hatting on Jonas. It's just tough for any goaltender to play so inconsistently especially because of injury problems and come in and play very well once in a blue moon. He has the skills but the team is going to have to play tighter defense in front of him or just get a comfortable lead so he can play with more confidence.

I'll be able to see a period or so before I head to the airport with my girlfriend. I hope I can start my vacation on a great note with a win especially because I have a 3 hour layover in Chicago on the way to Florida. I'll be sure to wear a Wings t shirt underneath my jacket and if they win, I'll take the jacket off in Chicago lol.
