I don't get how people can be too upset about these games lately. We're still winning more often than not and we're not getting blown out and that's with a roster that looks ready to play a pre-season game. This is half-Red Wings and they're playing pretty well all things considered. Short summer, lots of new guys, lots of young guys and lots of injuries. I'm not worried, not concerned, not down. If anything I'm encouraged because we should be looking a lot worse when you consider all that we're up against right now.

I dont know how to break this to you but we are not winning more than we are losing...matter of fac tonights loss just made it equal...11-7-4....we have lost just as many as we have won.

Lidstrom, Rafalski, Stuart and Lebda suck at hitting the net this year, it's ridiculous how often point shots miss, almost unnaturally bad.

Im shocked at that as well...Its been RIDICULOUS how many shots from the point this year go wide...I know they do it on purpose sometimes...but its felt like 8 out of 10 shots go wide...Lidstrom has 1 goal in 21 games which is a ver bad sign seeing as how the guy usually gets around 20

Anyone else about to go insane from how many times they have said PEKKA RINNE PEKKA RINNE PEKKA RINNE!!!! PEKKE RINNE!!

The only way Detroit is not going to make the playoffs is if Lidstrom, Rafalski, Datsyuk, or Zetterberg gets added to the list of long term injuries...say Zetterberg gets injured tonight and will miss up to two months....then I will start to seriously worry.....as of now...im not worried...we have a solid enough team to get a spot in the top 8...and once our guys come back we will be great.

In Topic: NHL 10 Trading Tips

Dont get me wrong I love NHL10...But Be a GM is definatly not what EA made it sound like it was going to be....I hate how basically not making trades or signing players hurts your status...Im the Red Wings...with a good enough team with zero cap space and no real way to improve the team...I signed Biron to backup Osgood and thats about it...

I miss having Chelios on the roster lol...He was good trade bait seeing as how since like NHL 2003 he would retire every time the season ends...In 09 I traded Chelios, Conklin and Samuelsson for Gaborik lol...then the stupid CPU put Conklin on waivers and I claimed him right back LOL...so at the end of the year Chelios retires...so in reality I traded Samuelsson for GABORIK....TOTAL steal.

A few things a lot of people seem to be not understanding is that we are somewhat fortunate to be dealing with these injuries semi early in the season rather than later when it would be imminent that these guys would miss playoff time....When looking at the schedule...our busiest month of the season is going to be in March where we literally play every other day...and so far each player with the expection of Lebda is pretty much guaranteed be back well before March let alone playoff time

Bottom line is we are without a doubt a team that has enough depth to at least finish in 8th place....now I dont think we will finish in 8th place...even with the injuries I dont see us finishing any further back in the conference than maybe 4th place...and if anything I see us dealing with these injuries making us much stronger...and then when we get our all star Franzen back...Kronwall....and Filpulla...we will be so used to picking up the slack that when our guys get back we will dominate...

The only things that become very obvious at this point is that Howard and Osgood absolutely must perform well.....We at no costs can afford to deal with the goaltender situation we had last year.....Datsyuk and Zetterberg absolutely MUST each produce...and put on another Selke performance...we need goals...and we need to let in fewer goals...
