Imagine nyquists numbers with an offensively competent red wings team


I'll take any opportunity I can get to make the point that if our defense could win battles and move the puck, all our forwards would shine.

The only positive that can happen with missing the playoffs is the firing of Holland and Babcock.
 
Of course, it won't happen, because the owner is too old to care (unless it's about the Tigers)


I agree with firing Holland but not Babcock. Babs builds his entire game around good puck moving defensemen and solid defensive play. Just look at the Canadian national team as an example. The defensemen were the center point of his offense. Of course we had that when we had Lids, Chellie, Stuart, etc.

Overmatched....outworked....and outcoached. Not to mention the extremely fragile nature of this team. The team has no leadership right now so I feel pretty confident stating that we have little to no chance making the playoffs.
Last year Jimmy stood on his head, Z carried the team and our schedule was amazingly weak down the stretch.

Steal one for us Jimmy. We need you desperately!

Not a playoff team.

No excuse for playing this bad. No leadership.

Defense, Power Play and Goaltending are the biggest weaknesses. Holland and Babs have done little to address the 1st two. Can't blame them for Howie's play.
Holland has one more off season to prove me wrong but I'm convinced we need a GM change.

I just want to point out that Dan Cleary has been scratched from the lineup for the last seven games. We have also gone 5-1-1 in that time. Coincidence? I think not. OK, I'm done strumming my one-stringed guitar.

Reason #345 we need upgrades on defense

PICK UP THE PHONE HOLLAND AND GET US SOME REAL DEFENSEMEN SO WE CAN MAKE A PLAYOFF RUN.

So....if you're Vancouver (especially a Torterella coached team) and you see the Red Wings down to only one goalie, what do you try to do with that one goalie?
Question 2: What should the refs be looking for?

It's not that hard refs, how are you this stupid?

Broken Record Statement: Without another top line defensemen ( I really believe we need 2 so we can bench Quincey and Kindl) we have no chance.

We won the shootout! It takes a big man to admit he's wrong. I am not a big man!
