Am I the only one who still LIKES the Wings? I swear the GDT is the most depressing place on the Internet lately.


#2587771 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by darkmanx on Today, 06:28 AM

Coaching is the LAST problem with the Wings.  It's the Defense!  Plain and simple!  We have ONE .... one top four D man.  The rest are all 5,6,7s.  Danny will be there but he has no mentor as Kronner is fried.  It is the D!

 

Ok so a D man who has 29 points, and is a +12 is not a top four D man? Sure DD has had a couple bad games, but I have no idea what games you watch to consider him only a top 6 D man.

See if Mantha turns things around after next season with Grand Rapids.

Odd how it seems late picks in draft work out for us and the the first rounders it can be hit and miss; no rhyme or reason to anything really

 

Mantha is only 20. Give him a couple years in the AHL and see what happens. He has all the skill in the world, his effort just needs to be better. He has to want it.

Seems odd, but really it's not.

 

I forget the stats now, but the drop-off after the top handful of picks is fairly dramatic. Even mid-1st rounders are far from a sure thing. We haven't had a ton of 1sts, but I'm pretty sure we're a bit better than average for the range we pick. We're just a lot better than most when it comes to the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

I agree that our goalies haven't been good, I think I even said it. I just think on top of bad goaltending were hanging them out to dry as well. When you compile everything that's just a recipe for disaster (which is what has happened).

There have been a lot of bad goals over this stretch but I think it's getting to the point that every goa scored against us now is a soft goal. Example I've seen Howard getting a lot of slack for last night for not coming up with the big save. To hang out a goalie, and have one of his first shots come as a Shorthanded breakaway is not helping out our goalie.

Aside from some noted Howard bashers, who would bash him regardless, no one was saying anything about Howard. 

 

What I'm saying is scoring chances are going to happen. Giving up a breakaway or a 2 on 1 doesn't mean the defense sucked. The Islanders did not have many really good scoring chances yesterday. Nor did SJ or Phoenix. Some, but not any ridiculous amount. If the only goals we'd allowed in those games were on those chances, we probably win those games and no one would be talking about poor goaltending or poor defense. If we're up 3-0 and Howie lets one in on a breakaway, no one would be complaining about not getting the big save.

 

Unlike scoring chances, bad goals are not something that happen every game around the league. Seeing 6-7 of them in 3 of our last 4 games is worth talking about.

Are you struggling? Is your team in a funk? Not to worry! The Detroit Red Wings are on your schedule. LMAO. So this trash team gets a lucky win yesterday and goes back to their usual self again. Just like that flukey win against the Pens when everyone though they were "back." Sorry ass team can't win two games in a row. TANK IT.

Like clockwork

Nothing like a bad game to reveal who everyone's personal whipping boy is.  :lol:

 

It's Mrazek's fault! Howard's fault! Ericsson's! No Andersson! No Babcock!

 

Where's that Cleary guy?!

The last three losses have all had multiple soft goals. You can't lock down every game. There's going to be mistakes, breakdowns, bad bounces...teams are going to get chances. Goalies have to make some tough saves, and they most definitely should be making the easy ones.
 
Arizona hardly had any more chances than TB, but nothing seemed to hit Jimmy that night; maybe his positioning was off; then he gave up a buttery soft OT goal. Half the goals in SJ were weak. 2 of Mrazek's today were, and a 3rd was a little iffy. Neither the Sharks nor Islanders had an unusually high number of good chances. Not all the goals were bad and we wouldn't have had shutouts, but you don't need a shutout to win. With as much luck as we've had with our own scoring lately, we should have gotten more than 3 points out of the last 4 games. And we most likely would have if we had gotten decent goaltending.
 
I agree the tangents can get ridiculous at times, and goaltending is not the only problem with the team. But this last week it has been by far the biggest, and all the ranting is about as justified as it'll ever be.

I love the tangents LGW goes on sometimes. I feel like I'm one of the few that realize both goalies are not playing up to snuff but I think it has more to do with being hung out to try and blowing their confidence.

I honestly thing our goaltending problems come down to a much bigger problem of just buckling down and playing a good team game. An easy example was the 4-0 Tampa game. Detroit buckled down and didn't give them any grade a chances. Against the Isles tonight we gave up way to many good chances and a terrible PK. Yes not every goal was unstoppable but the team in front of him sure didn't help them out.

Overall this isn't a 1 man problem, it's a team problem. If we lock it down and actually help our goalies out which our team has not been doing, they can start gaining their confidence back and start making the big saves when we need them.

Weiss can't win a board battle yet he's put in a position that only allows him to try and win board battles. He is way too skilled to be on the 4th line.

 

Anderson is not a PK specialist, he's just there because he's a 4th liner and not a top line guy. He doesn't block shots, he doesn't pressure anyone he just stands there waving his stick most of the time. No matter what way you slice it, Anderson blows and shouldn't be on this team because he contributes absolutely nothing.
