I hope we don't have to look back at that 5 minute power play as the turning point in our season but it pretty much summed us up this year...just too many complete lapses in urgency. If I knew the PP would've been that bad I would've declined it lol. We controlled that period.
Time to sit Samuelsson and move Bertuzzi to the top line. Bert looked fine tonight. Better than Sammy did playing with top guys.
I don't understand you or the feeling on Sammy in general. People will whine whine whine that we dont shoot enough and we put Sammy on the top line, he doesn't make a glaring mistake all night, takes 4 shots on net, plays good in his own end. Is he our best option for the 1st line? Of course not but a guy who plays mistake free hockey is ok with me.
As someone who has followed the Wings basically since birth, I reject the notion that I have to be satisfied with the product we are seeing right now or to take a hike. That's just true arrogance (or is it defeatism?) showing. Perhaps you should take the hike and get off of the bandwagon.
I am guessing by your whining and bitching that you were born 11 years ago ? Any guy that is a true fan that questions the roster 2 periods into game one of a 7 game series is lost. Settle in. Have some faith. Be a fan and not a knee jerk reaction negative nancy like some of your friends on here. We need to be better that is obvious This is our lineup. They all know how to get it done. RELAX
Tough one, we can be better thats for sure. Need to get more pucks to the net for 60 mins. Bert will be in Toots will be out. 1 game doesn't make a series either way. Get a clue , get behind this squad and lets tie this thing up in game 2.
