Three in a row with bad defense....it's now a trend

You guys need to settle down...We're playing an amazing team who has all their guys healthy and have dominated the rest of the league....wait....oh....none of that is true. My bad.

Having flashes of last year's "end-of-the-period" woes

Meh, possibly. I still believe that its more psychological than anything else. Especially for teams that aren't used to the grind. Teams who make the playoffs every year for the last 20 years are used to that kind of grind. Thats why I believe that the Wings are pretty much exempt from the "grind" rule. Teams like Vancouver and Boston who have had varied seasons of success, there is truth to your statement. So many factors to look at though. I just don't believe the Wings have this issue.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree.


Let's hope it is true because that will mean we go deep and Vancouver goes home. Haha!!

Still, the Wings have played a ton of games thanks to a couple runs to the 2nd round. Thats more than many of the other teams. You make it sound like they didn't even make the playoffs or they were swept in the first round.

At least admit the youth and the better defense helps a lot more than your faulty statement.


nope...that's what you're doing. I didn't mention being swept or not making the playoffs. You're reading way too much into this.

Players always seem to say it takes a lot out of them when they have deep runs into the playoffs, I was simply stating that maybe we might be fresh this year (as opposed to the last two) since we didn't have deep runs. Like I said, you totally read too much into my "faulty" statement.

no worries though.

We look rested....Like a team that had early exits in the playoffs the last two years.

This is the most dominated I have ever see us be. It will take a miracle to get this team going. Out coached...out played in every way. watch those without the puck, you can tell we have nothing left. Like I said, it will take a miracle. I'm trying not to be harsh but it's really hard.

i much prefer the "crash & bang" 4th line abdelkader than the 2nd line "yeah i'm just filling in and the coach doesn't want me out of position so i'm a bit tentative" abdelkader.


VERY long Nickname....but I like it!

So...Since the wings hardly ever show up to play the 1st period and I have to pay for the Center Ice Package...I wonder if I could negotiate with my local cable company to only play the 2nd and 3rd periods. This would save me a lot of money and time screaming at the TV. Any thoughts?

I wonder what is better. getting win number 400 or retiring when you still have some respect in this league? I would have gone with the respect. Yes...I hate having Chris Osgood....deal with it
