#2666098 4/9 GDT : at Rangers 3, Red Wings 2

This team needs to find their balls


Well that goal stemmed from the captain taking a dumb penalty so we should start there

Too many unforced giveaways we deserved that

  I posted this in some other game thread, and I'll try to find it again if anyone's interested, but Winging it in Motown had a nice piece on why Blashill's system hasn't worked, and it basically boils down to we don't have a D corps capable of playing the system Blashill has in place.
  Babcock knew what he had to work with(a mediocre defense), and kept a more conservative style of play as a result, which was boring, but led to less high-quality scoring chances against. Blashill's system is more aggressive offensively and allows the D to pinch more often, but it leaves us vulnerable to more quality chances against. Why Blashill hasn't adjusted to this not working by now is beyond me, and also our terrible PP
 
any-hoo, still hoping we can somehow eek into the big dance, but I also won't lose too much sleep if we don't


I get what your saying, but from my vantage point I'm seeing the problem being more in terms of in zone defense that is killing this team as opposed to bad pinches that lead to odd man rushes. So I don't really agree with the fact that Blashills system being a more aggressive one as the problem. It's about in zone coverage and quite frankly it's pathetic

this game sums up nicely how we've played this year:
 
brief moments of greatness
 
followed by
 
long stretches of disastrous ineptitude


I know exactly. That's what pisses me off so much because they can look so good at one moment and then just a completely different team the next. It's mind boggling because you see the potential is there in those dominating moments

Larkin - Datsyuk - Mantha
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Tatar - Athanasiou - Jurco
Sheahan - Richards / Glendening - Helm


I really like those lines. Gotta get AA more minutes, Tatar plays well with jurco and I think that line would play really fast. Hopefully pav would get Larkin going.

The biggest problem is that this defense is trash. Only 3 of them should be in the league. Get some legit puck movers not guys that blindly rim the puck like Quincey and e

Two chances to clear and helm blows both of them

Play 3 lines the rest of the way. Glendening line shouldn't see the ice again

@HeleneStJames: Jeff Blashill said he told Wings before Dallas game: "This is what I wanted. I wanted our group. I believe in our group." #tradedeadline

Love this quote

Wow what a game! Howard was awesome! And AA was magic out there I'm so impressed with this kid he's a threat everytime he has the puck, and with his ability to have such good hands at that speed he's going to be tough to stop, thought Larkin was better, top line isn't playing as well, maybe time to split the eurotwins. Haven't liked Abby with those two maybe a jurco and Abby swap??

Or Nyquist.


He was a lot better than Tatar I'll tell ya that, but both are just so disappointing

 
What would keep him from staying up? When Miller comes back? Not sure how some of this roster and cap stuff goes...


Miller is done for the year, plus after deadline rosters expand I believe

AA needs to play with Pavel and Z
