Cooper hasn't really utilized Stamkos well imoSince he took over


Shh... Let him figure that out after the game. ;)

Average save by Jimmy, Wings never lost possession, TB player knocked the net off with no help from a Wing, Larkin puts it in. Good goal. Karmic payback for the stick lift 5 on 3.

We get it, you want our top Center prospect from GR to play fourth line wing with the Wings, essentially throwing away the entire development philosophy that has made our team uniquely good over the years.


Or it's Cory Emmerton's sock puppet trying to work his way back onto the Wings at Miller's expense. :)



Come out hard for the 4rd, boys! Kick them in the yambag and bring home the win. BoS has the wheels on the tank already.

Nyquist focused on trying to set Hank up for 300, he probably should have fired it himself.

What the f*** is the coach's challenge for???


That situation isn't addressed in the rule book, coach's challenge would be wasted there. Doesn't make any less crappy of a penalty.

That little graphic they showed about Mrazek for some reason made me think that Petr attacks the puck like a velociraptor.... Jurassic Mrazek anybody? (Feel free to photoshop or ms paint it if you want). What little I have seen of Howard so far tonight has been good. I almost wonder if the 1/1A goalie situation is actually helping Howard by making him feel pressure to keep the job, but also helping to keep him fresher by having Mrazek play a decent amount of the games. In any case, I will take the all star caliber stats.

Weak call there, but Smith had his stick there. Killorn went down a bit easy, IMHO. Kill this guys!

Kindl with a nice stick to break up a Tampa rush there. Hopefully he keeps playing well.

We're leading by one and we have more shots on goal than they do.


I will take that. I'm glad to see Sheahan get on the board. Call me greedy, but I want Hank to get goal number 300 tonight (could make for a good "this.... is..... Detroit!" photoshop) and Larkin to get enough points to pull ahead in the rookie scoring race.

Its a valid post. Shouldnt we expect Howard to outllay Mrazek?


I'm not qualified to determine which one would "outlay" the other, and I certainly don't want to watch. This is a family forum. ;)


In all seriousness, the RFA vs UFA thing is a HUGE salary difference in any case.

Great analysis, Kliq, and appropriate music cue at the end (plus it has a great bass line).

Miller going down to block a shot up two goals as time expires. Gotta love his effort.

Anderson missed the net... Leads to a goal for the Sens... Imagine that.


Maybe he was being Jason f***ing Williams for Halloween.

That would have been an amazing thing to see.
I'd be the guy chanting probie egging it on.
Ha.


There were a couple guys egging me on.... And afterwards one said to the guy, dude, if you had any clue about hockey, you'd know better than to mess with Probie. I could have seen you wearing a Kocur jersey egging it on.

When you don't know how to have a conversation without having a superiority complex, you don't generally get the benefit of doubt.
By the way I have nothing against you, I don't dislike you, and I like that you're passionate about the wings.
I just don't like the way you talk to people on here.


Too many folks who've only come on to slag the team when they lose and not give credit where it's due when they do well the last couple of years, it has gotten old.

Stupid play in the D zone leads to a goal against. I completely agree there are defensive problems, that need to be fixed, but there have been some sorely needed positives tonight as well.
