Well, when you only score one or two goals a game this is what you get. I think they've looked decent so far this year, but they have GOT to start scoring more. Then we won't have to worry about bulls*** waving off of goals or uncalled penalties or what the f*** ever.
I have been saying for several years, the Wings must score 30% more goals than any other team in order to win a game, since so many of their perfectly good goals are disallowed... and the refs make sure the ice tilts in the direction of whatever team the Wings are playing.
Must find offense, somehow. Jimmy was spectacular tonight... D was adequate. Wings must become over-achievers and soon, if they expect to succeed.
IMO, and this is coming from a spoiled Red Wing standpoint, once you give a guy a C you mark him as that for his career. You don't take it back and you don't trade him (Unless things go horribly wrong you're the Dallas Stars).
Sharks post-season is always a disappointing spectacle... perhaps they thought they would start out the year in chaos, and reverse psychology would kick in?
I can only be an improvement to the area, and I am sure the local fans will love it. I am very happy that I got to attend a few games at the epic and irreplaceable Joe Louis Arena. I loved every second of the games I attended there and felt privileged as a fan to be there.
Sentiment aside, the Wings deserve the best. I hope this new arena is just that.
