What is going on tonight!?

 

and who are these Red Wings and where have they been all year?

 

I don't know, but I like it

Maybe Kenny can steal some Russians from the KHL. The Wings have a history of stealing Russians from their native land, so this should be doable.


 

Ruthlessness. The hallmark trait of all good Hitchcock teams.

maybe he can lure Kovalchuk back over

 

git 'er done, Kenny!

 

the ruthless thing also counts for his attitude towards buffet tables

well that sums up this game, and season, thus far

Why was Garbutt so pissed there after?  He tried jumping over Z for whatever reason was going through his small mind and then hit his own guy.  They're lucky the play got blown down going the other way cause the other team usually has to get possession of the puck first.

he's probably pissed due to his last name being Garbutt

Wings doing the puck of destiny at the end of the period (playing tenacious D).

so does Tatar's performance tonight make him Wonderboy, or Young Nastyman?

Does that make up for his mishandle in the shootout at the Winter Classic?

no, but it's a damn good start

Howie's throw-back pads are cool

 

wish more goalies would wear them on a regular basis

And this is why I can't stand Babcock.

Babs likes to take 'the more you struggle, the more I'm gonna play you' approach, and hey, who can argue with the results? just ask Cleary and Quincey, living proof of a system that works!

our defense can't actually play defense, nor can it transition to offense

 

gotta be able to do at least one of those things to have a chance in this league

 

or have a goalie who can stand on his head night in and night out

 

we haven't had any of those things this season

 

we never adequately replaced the losses of Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Stuart, and I know there's no replacing a guy like Nick, but it seems Holland really has effed up the entire D corps the last couple of years

Just came in, how are we doing ?

we're doing alright, been a parade to the penalty box for both teams and we've capitalized on a couple while the Panthers have not

we may as well score a shortie here

 

Glendening on a breakaway would be nice

Alright we've got to win this one! It starts with a good omen as for a late Xmas gift at work I was given a blank away jersey so let's go wings!!


Also on a side note I now need a name on the back-I have a home Zetterberg with an A, so do I put Z on this one too with a C? Or Tatar, these are who I have it down to so far. Any ideas?

Tatar!

And both Smith and Quincy on the ice for all three.  Sheesh Babcock split these two up.  Obviously, it ain't working for ya.

Babcock's response- No, no, no, I'm going to leave them paired together and just assume that it all goes to plan. What?

I think this is accurate. Everyone focuses on the loss of Lidstrom, but Rafalski and, to a lesser extent, Stuart were also outstandinding puck movers.

I remember something Fedorov said to the Anaheim coach(could've been Babs?) after he started playing for them, and he was complaining that the D never passed him the puck, and Babs told him the reason they didn't give him the puck was b/c they couldn't, they didn't have the skill like he was used to having in Detroit, getting that first pass on the tape to spring him through the neutral zone with speed

 

so yeah, I agree it is a big problem with the team now- not enough d-men that can make that first outlet pass out of the zone
