I couldn't agree more. I love our boys but to be honest I'm getting bored with them .
They look bored, too. I don't think they are, don't get me wrong. But you can't let opportunities like the last two games (or any game) go to waste like this.
The Wings made Columbus and Nashville look like Cup winners. They didn't have to be very good to beat the Wings, let's face it. Jokes about Vezina winning efforts in opponents' nets aside - neither goalie had to ratchet out of daily practice mode to stop all the Wings' 69 shots on goal the last two games.
The Rangers should be afraid of facing a pissed-off Wings team. I bet they're not. They're going to come out and try to rip this team's heads off, and they probably will succeed if no one shows up to play again. Avery will have every right to make fun of his former team.
To whom much is given, much is expected. No one is going to give you anything in this life, Wings. You have to work for it. I miss seeing a work ethic out there. Stop expecting 'the other guy' to do all the work. ALL of the Wings need to show up, each of them assuming they are going to be the key factor in winning this game, and every game.
They should never step on the ice expecting to lose. It should honestly surprise them when they don't win. Take whatever happened and then attack it... go out there and fix it. Never let it happen again.
I dearly miss that work ethic on the ice and in the locker room. We had it once. We don't right now.
