I want the Wings to show up EVERY game and act like they work there and that they should win the game. The fact that they don't and aren't interested in regular season games is, frankly, beneath them. I do realize that work ethic is a thing of the past, and I am a throw-back dinosaur for wanting this team to show up 60 minutes per game. Silly me.
They are not ready. They show the same lack of chemistry they did last season. The only way to fix that is for the players to decide to play as a team... if they don't, we're in for another season of last minute wins (which they didn't deserve) and losses where the whole team is responsible, but the goalies take the heat.
Perhaps this is just too similar to my workplace, eerily so, actually. I have come to expect little from my coworkers, as they sit around and wait for someone else to show up and do the work. I really don't like seeing that same ethos in the Red Wings -- but do acknowledge that it's acceptable in today's world. I hold them accountable as a team.
Hope they decide to play and work hard before April.
