With the Joe being so close to the river, this one hits a little too close to home. Granted, I realize the height at which the Joe sits, but damn, nature gives exactly zero s***s.

Full disclosure: I've had a few pints and have been reminiscing about a certain someone who I believe to be the true embodiment of a Red Wing

 

 

 

Pick up the torch young Wings. This man is your standard.

Win or lose, I've learned more about this team in the last 5 games than in the first 40+.

 

It's been a great series to watch and it's awesome seeing all the kids play at this high level. A major reason this series isn't a rout is due to the effort of the young guys and Howard, so seeing that is quite reassuring moving forward into next year. Obviously there are changes/additions required, but these young guys are hanging tough with one of the grittiest teams in the playoffs.

 

Oh, and the Wings get their grittiest player back for next game. Can't wait for Friday.

Losing DeKeyser feels like when we lost Helm last year.

The Wings did play pretty well. The only issue is I have seen that high shot total before with nothing to show for goals. Namely the series against Nashville where they peppered Rinne.

The Red Wings still play on the perimeter too much and many of their shots are rather harmless. They can't or in some players cases (Franzen and Filppula stand out) won't go to the tough areas of the ice to score goals.

This team desperately needs some size and goal-scoring ability on the wing.

 

I truly believe that Homer's retirement has gone massively, massively under-recognized.

 

The coaching staff still appear to be implementing an offensive system that saw Lidstrom launch slap-passes at the net and try for a Homer tip or rebound. The only problem with this is that they are missing two key parts to it; namely, Lidstrom and Homer.
