It's just so easy to defend this team.

That last shift by Cleary says it all.

Can we all chip in and help Chicago buy some more lights so we can actually see the game on TV. My god this arena is so freakin dark.

I'm hoping that this season has opened Holland's eyes a bit.  I don't think the Wings can afford to keep prospects in the minors forever and sign old former Red Wing free agents to fill the gap.  Because of the cap, you have to give jobs to younger, cheaper players.  We no longer have the luxury of paying future hall of famers several million to play on the third line or sit in the press box to fill in for an injury.  Not saying play a guy full time at 18, but by 21 or so, these guys need to be given a chance to play and not continue to rot in Grand Rapids.


I think the Kindl's of the world would agree with your last sentence. Some guys need the challenge of the big leagues in order to excel. I also feel Nyquist should have been with the big boys all year.

This team makes me wonder why I ever complained about last year's team. Please stop the trend!

I've never seen us get Owned by so many teams as I have this year. It looks as if we may never score a goal.

We did nothing at the trade deadline and we are getting exactly that.

.....not a playoff team. Sad to say

Baffled how teams are able to drive the net on us with ease. Correction......there's not much driving....it's more slow, uncontested floating with the puck all the way into the crease.

This is actually one time where I actually think the best thing for us might have been to do nothing. Getting Bert, Sammy, and Helm back is literally like adding a third line. That's roughly 13-16 minutes of ice time every night. I have to believe that much ice time with players as good as they are will increase scoring or at the very least, play much more in the other teams end. The cost is just too high right now for rental players who would likely have only a minimal effect.

With that said, I do believe the salary cap has revealed that Holland is not the magician he was made out to be all these years.

I must admit.....Franzen just can't do anything right in my book. Im not saying im right. I'm afraid I have already given up on him. He was a beast in the 2008 playoffs though. I sure wish we had THAT guy.
