With the way NJ plays that is probably the game.

Sucks there had to be that controversial goal in there. It was a great game. Huge positive is that Larkin has been absolutely on fire during the tournament.

No Lucic? 
Now who do I hope for to get Kronwalled? 

Chara or Marchand.

Franzen has been playing the worst hockey of his career as of late. He looks pathetic out there.

Okay tighten it up now. We were lucky to get a call in our favor for once.

Edit: once this season....just to clarify

To be fair I wouldn't say Holtby dove. He just lost an edge and fell. The refs are entirely at fault.

I know it's beating a dead horse around here, but I strongly despise Eddie O.

#2531352 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by CaliforniaWingsFan on 10 July 2014 - 08:29 PM

So all in all a pretty good off-season so far right guys? Wouldn't be surprised if Dekeyser and Tatar don't want to re-sign with us. Absolutely ridiculous. At what point is Holland held accountable though? 

#2520495 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by CaliforniaWingsFan on 14 May 2014 - 09:20 PM

This is why holland doesn't like bringing his guys up too early. But he drafts these young guys that are small and either can't or aren't conditioning to get to beast mode like subban. That kid is 24 and he's stout and energetic. Don't see much of that from any of the wings guys. They need to do something about their conditioning. It's not just about speed. It's about agility and speed. Like the lineman for Alabama. big strong AND fast.

The Canadiens were actually hitting them back hard and getting their fans into it which is something that the Wings just can't do. It's hard watching Tatar and Nyquist get completely destroyed and avoid hits the way they were in the Bruins series. I don't think that the Wings need to become the Bruins, but I think they definitely need some bigger guys in the lineup. Also, the s***ty NBC announcers kept harping on the "character" guys on the Canadiens, but I think the Wings need guys like that too. I like Glendo, but someone playing that role needs to be hitting and creating energy with every shift and scoring occasionally. Weise for the Candiens is a prime example of a bottom six grinder that the Wings need.

The better team won. Fully expected that result, just kinda disappointed with how it went down.

Another long summer. Holland has a lot of work to do. The Wings have a sound foundation, but clearly need some adjustments to get back to championship contention.

I think this series showed the glaring holes in this Wings team. I do not believe Holland will do anything or enough to make the drastic changes that this club needs to be competitive again. That said I will never follow another hockey team. Still proud to be a Wings fan despite everything.

Glad we called a timeout for that fantastic play.
