You see our last powerplay? I didn't see Cleary out there but I did see our superstars trying to be awfully cute. You cannot blame whole bad periods on one or two guys. Top to bottom we got beat for the last twenty minutes.
no argument here, just like to bash Cleary from time to time
Lots of ambivalence about Bertuzzi on the boards these days. Prior to tonight's game, half of LGW wanted him off the team. Anybody willing to eat crow?
sure I'll admit I wanted him off the team when he was sucking, like a lot of other people did, but that's how it is with us fickle sports fans I guess; if Sammy somehow goes on a 10 game goal-scoring streak I'd eat crow for that, too(though if that were to happen, my head would probably explode before I ever got to a keyboard)
You would think the speed and skill of the third line in the playoffs last season would have made some lasting impact on Holland/Babcock. Instead they insist on icing an old and slow team, with veterans that all provide the same attribute of nothing. There's simply no excuse for Tatar and Nyquist not to play over the likes of Samuelsson, Cleary and Bertuzzi. These veterans aren't making the Red Wings better and this continues to be the biggest glaring flaw of the organization.
It's as though they turn their brains off when it comes to playing a vet or a rook, it's always vet that wins by default, regardless of performance
