This PP is an embarrassment. Wish they could turn down penalties. Clowns.

The one thing that is driving me absolutely nuts lately is the fact that Homer adds absolutely nothing to this team and every night seems to get 2 minutes for being old and not athletic enough. I have seen enough of that guy that is for sure.

Crazy game and a big win.

Ha Zetterberg tried shutting the gate on Flip.


He did that a few games ago when he was second star lol.

Sigh, The sky isnt falling but Detroit definitely needs to address there need for a scorer hopefully we can this off season. There was no way we could compete with the price for Carter. We don't have a guy like Jack Johnson to trade unless you want to deal Filppula or Franzen and even then I dont think Filp is enough and dealing Franzen leaves us in the same spot we started in.

I guess we won't really see how much of a difference adding Quincey will make until we are Healthy and we can see how good our Team Defense can play.

Heres to hoping that the small moves that all the other West Coast teams made all end up really being just a slight improvement, and that there prospects pools are too slim to compete in the next 2-4 years.


I would love for this team to flip Franzen for someone who shows up every night. I like Mule when he is playing hard but when he just floats around and acts as if he is 5 feet tall 123 lbs it gets frustrating.

I was thinking the same thing. If we got Quincey today, people wouldn't be so upset.


Quincy does not and cannot fill the biggest issue with this team. The lack of a sniper is pretty much the end of this team. They don't have a guy who just score goals. All they do is pass the puck 1 too many times and turn it over or they get a break away and shoot it at the goalies chest. They just don't have that guy who can score and until they do its going to be an early exit every year. The top 6 and bottom 3 on this team is just not good enough.

Whelp ready for a 2nd round exit. At least my expectations are realistic since this team has about zero chance of getting pass that.

I thought a physical D-man who could play the PK was a pretty big need. That is filled by a 26 year old 6'2" 207 lbs defenseman who wasn't on Detroit a week ago...


I thought the Wings D was solid before that trade. Wings D > Wings offense. That is the problem when the only offense is coming from your 3rd line your team has issues. This team desperately needs scoring. 6 shots on net in the first period against the Avs is pretty embarrassing.

All of the teams the Wings compete with are getting better. Great.

Aye. I wish we were rooting for the other, perfect team that has perfect scoring depth, great goaltending and awesome defense. That team never loses games for any reason.


Crymson I know you are the homer of all homers and that is cool. The reality is though one guy goes down they go on losing streaks. One guy goes down and they cannot even generate offense on the top 2 lines. If Pav or Z gets hurt in the playoffs its all but over.

Oh and if awesome defense is constantly turning the puck over in your zone..then ya ...awesome.

I wouldn't be upset either, I know Holland won't make a deal if there's not a good one to be made. Hopefully he can find something, but when healthy we're good enough to win it all anyway.


Problem is the chances of being 'healthy' are slim. This team has no scoring depth and it is showing.

WTF!!!!


Well with all his turnovers the other day... lol. I am open to this if they flip those picks for someone who can score.

I am guessing that this statement is retracted if we went and got Suter??


Obviously but that is not going to happen.

I want to see Franzen moved for someone who gives a s***.

Vancouver is a flagship franchise? That is news to me.
