The Wings looked timid in transition from their own zone. Too many giveaways allowing The Ducks rushing opportunities. Better team won tonight, let's make sure the same happens on thursday with the Wings being the better team. Road PK has been a problem all year, and needs to be better. Andersson should get an earful for giving Selanne the diving opportunity, and Kindl needs to be more composed on the puck. The perils of having a young, inexperienced team, I guess.
It's like losing a family member! I watch the Wings on the computer alone in the middle of the night, and these guys are a key part of making it a good experience. Especially Mickey, Ken and Larry. Sad FSD let him go.
It obviously takes a lot to retire your Wings jersey, seeing as the only player in 40 years to do it was Yzerman himself. I guess we can pretty much assume that Lidström #5 will get retired, but my question is if other players currently on our roster have a chance? The most obvious candidates perhaps being Datsyuk #13 and Zetterberg #40. Anyone think they have a shot at it? I don't live in Detroit, or America even, and have only been following the Red Wings for a few years. The importance of this whole thing may escape me to some degree. Please let me know what you think!
