#2672748 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by gowings00 on 21 April 2016 - 09:20 PM

This team struggled all season to score goals. They didn't score more than two in any game this series. They didn't even score one goal in a must win game. Gosh....I wonder what the problem is. We don't have a defensemen that can score (outside of Green) so please, for the love of God can we all get on the same sheet of music?

I will take Engblom any day over senile homer "Chief" though. At least they have been listenable for me down here in CFL this year.

I'm here too and I interact with a lot of Tampa "fans" down here who are brainwashed by these guys. I hear them repeating everything these guys say on tv. Tomorrow all I will hear is how Larkin interfered and the refs cheated.

Every year we get bounced in the first or second round I wait to hear about all the injuries we had and I at least feel a little better. The last few years though......crickets. I'm praying Dats, Z, Tatar, Nyquist, and Kronnner all are playing on broken legs or something equally debilitating.

However, I'm afraid everybody is completely healthy.

If we only had Drew Miller the score would be 6-0 by now.

The only way this playoff is of any benefit is if the kids get a ton of playing time. If I see Jurco or Andersson in any game (barring injury) it's a waste and I'll jump on the "Fire Blashill) bandwagon.

Overconfidence is a big problem with this team.

I think Kenny Holland should play goalie the rest of the season.  He's a former goalie and it's only fitting that he should play behind this s***ty defense that he himself assembled.  

Not true at all. We were blindsided with the retirement of Rafalski and Chelios and Lidstrom as well at Stuart's move out West. Why would you expect a GM to find replacements in 5 years? That's just too little time. Yes....I'm being sarcastic.

Sure. Never said that the changes produced more goals. One doesn't exclude the other.
Two examples that stood out to me this season : Our defenseman are allowed to pinch more often. And our center often goes deeper into the zone instead of securing high against breakouts.
Smith. By a mile.

I think most people would even argue against Smith being THAT much better.
The point was almost every player on our team is having a worse year than last.
DK (only because he was so good last year)
Dats (probably because of the surgery and age)

You would think in a system where Blashill makes a commitment to each player to help them have their best personal season that SOMEONE would standout. However, this was a strong argument FOR keeping Babs since he seemed to get the most out of everybody. The point being, maybe the Ceiling for all our guys has already been reached. I honestly don't know but I'm sure it's a bit of a combination of mediocre players and a bit of a setback in coaching.

Can we have a PP goal, please?

You're so selfish. How dare you ask for more than one per month.

I so want this team to be something it's not.

anyone knows when was our last shorthanded goal?

It was about 5 games ago. Last team to finally get one for the year.

Does anyone know when Tatar and Nyquist come back from their season long injuries? Sure would be great to have guys who can score. Wait...

Worst 2 min of PP I have ever seen only because it's clear nobody wants to shoot or has any idea what to do once we get the puck into the offensive zone. Just bad.

We will never score on a PP again. Ever. Never. Definitely not in this game.

I guess Miller is the best PK'er in NHL history because we look atrocious.
