#2512517 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Well they better figure out how in the hell to score on the PP.  This is ridiculous!


We are working hard enough to draw the penalties, just too bad our PP is non existent.

If we somehow get this battered team to the playoffs I can't see how Babs doesn't at least get a nomination for coach of the year.

And another thing: What the eff is this "He was behind a lot of talent here" crap? He's a first-year Griffin, and a first-year NA pro. Since when do we hold that against a kid and tell him, "Well, you're not where the guys who are currently on our team are at, so I don't see this working out in the long run"? By the time he'd be making his fashionably late debut with the Wings (a la Tatar, Nyquist), Z and D would probably be just about done.


Holland hates kids, loves 35-year-olds.


So he finally sends Sammy down, pines Cleary and pretty much pines Bert for the last 20 games and you still think that the kids arent getting a chance...who else would you like him to sit that's over 30? Z? he's hurt  Datsyuk? he's hurt too  Kronwall? doubt it  Franzen? not right now  ...oh you want him to keep Jarnkrok and have Andersson and Glendening centering the first 2 lines because we think that some kid who has played half a season in North America is a can't miss according to the LGW scouting staff? You have to give something to get something, we were desperate..we have too many injuries...I said it before, it's not in the culture of this franchise to mail it in and miss the playoffs.

Could of signed him in the off season then ... Again I got nothing against david legwand I wanted him here before we got him ... Just don't like giving up jarnkrok .... Time will tell what happens


We don't need him the off season, we need him now WE HAVE NO CENTERS, they are hurt ( 3 weeks shut down ), hurt ( maybe for the season ) and well......hurt ( concussion like symptoms) Desperate times call for desperate measures..would you have prefered they sent Gus or Tatar, Picks, and prospects to Vancouver for Kesler?

Holland could play 2B for the Tigers hit 80 HR's and get 195 RBi's, Throw 73 Td's for Lions, Average a triple double per game for the Pistons, and GM the most successful franchise in hockey the last 20+ years and some of you would still hold something against him.  We need warm bodies down the middle....we have none..he got one..over paid? maybe but it had to be done.  This team won't settle for missing the playoffs..this isn't Vancouver.  This place is amazing...if he doesn't panic he's an idiot, if he does he's an idiot.  Who was the last prospect he traded away at the deadline that everyone got pissed about? Oh yea it was Matthias, the guy is a 10 goal scorer who just got traded again. I think our scouting, coaches and rest of staff wouldn't have traded Jarnkrok if they knew he was a can't miss blue chipper. Legwand waived his no trade clause to play here in a season where we might actually miss the playoffs which seems like a pretty fair sign that he wants to be in Detroit possibly for longer than 20 games.

Kyle Quincey is directly responsible for two of the goals against.

Scratch this idiot and put Lashoff in.


Yea I don't know what Lashoff has to do to be in the lineup..he's been solid all year..hardly ever hear his name which is a good sign for a stay at home d man.

2-1 goal is a killer. We were playing a decent road game until then. We need a full squad and top notch goaltending to compete with teams like this

Great 2 periods by the Wings, got hosed on the penalty call and a nice play by JVR on that goal.  Play like we have been in the 3rd and we win this game.

#5 and #28 might not want to play too good in this game or they might get offered contracts lol

How can we possibly be THIS bad ??? 


Missing a third of an NHL roster might be a start.

We are arguably missing our 3 best forwards this year and our best d man ( kronner has been good too) at the same time.  We still beat these guys.  


Wings - 9 ( Nyquist 3, Alfie 3, Bert with a FG )

Devils - 2 ( Brodeur 2 )

Imagine someone being happy when his/her team wins and demoralized when they lose, what's up with that?  ;)


Cmon is that really the attitude with a large group around here..I think it sucks we lost..we played like garbage in the 3rd but i'm not going to start questioining every level of the organization over 1 loss..it's an 82 game season..we haven't played our best hockey this year and we still sit 4th? in the conference.  I care that we get healthy and play our hockey at the right time of the year.
