Moving Z to the third line could be a big rallying moment for the team. Counting on him to score at this point is just ridiculous. There's nothing about his game that suggests he's an offensive threat and yet, we count on him game in game out to be our go to guy.

You're a coach and have been coaching this team for the last three months... in what world is Z a guy you still lean on heavily. AA is probably pissed... ice time is decided by resume. Blashill has no balls to run this team any other way than Babcock has

Whatever happens in the offseason, jurco and smith need to be traded for the sake of their careers. It's doing no good for the wings or themselves

BTW, I'm still waiting for Abdelkader to score 3 goals over his last 12 games to hit 20 and show all us doubters that he's worth that shiny new contract.  14 goals and 36 points in 78 games since his hot start.  Totally worth $30 mil over 7 years.  Can't wait for his decline in 2 or 3 years where they're paying over $4 mil a season for 20 points.


Abby is like the only guy close to his career projections. The fact that he's close to his career high while the entire team struggles so much offensively is one of the only positives of a piss poor year all around. Not to mention he's also our most physical presence easily and protects Larkin like its his job. I can't understand how people can not love Abby he's a beauty

After my rage has died down it would have been very surprising to win two huge games back to back like that given the kind of team we are. Would have been a story book way to get into the playoffs. But the way that just laid down and died was hard to watch. But again, it would have been a very tough win, not suprised they lost but the manner they did was awful

He's just shown too much respect to the vets... Z would have been benched by now if Tortarella was coaching

The worst part is when the wings played great it wasn't because of Z and Dats and Kronwall. That's why we're so inconsistent. Wings are only great when rookies and grinders or goaltending step up

For the sake of the team Z should just hang them up. Sheahan can do what he's done honestly. All his PP time guys just a very average hockey player. Likely to be outplayed by guys like Beleskey and Horvat... He's not a top 50 center in the league

Wings really need to catch a break and get some life cause they're getting skated into the ground

Was at the game. Great crowd, but what stood out is how lucky the Wings were to win this game. If they think that's acceptable we are in real trouble.


That's hockey man... Wings were the better team all three periods... It's a game of inches. Sometimes luck is the most important part

Losing a game where they scored 3 powerplay games is such a waste. This is a very tough loss to stomach

I think Holland will try his best to sign Stamkos but it will be a nightmare around here... Much like the Suter and Parise situation

Hard to find something positive Blashill has added to this team. He hasn't figured out the NHL. If next year is the same he should be fired mid season. Pretty obvious when watching this team is poorly coached. Idk why people expect Blashill to learn the ropes with the wings. Can't spend 4 years with a bad coach. It doesn't benefit anybody but himself

My guess is we will not have Smith for the next 2


I would be pretty upset if he got suspended at all. Smith stood straight up, no thrusting motion at all and their was no injury. They start suspending guys for that then players will have to steer clear of everyone skating with their head down

The way coaching and the media hype DeKeseyer up it seems he's going to inherit the #1 tag in Detroit. I think he'll be like a Dan Giardi type, questionable on both ends of the ice but still doing a good job playing a lot of minutes

I like DeKesyer and I think he has a good chance to be a top 15-20 defensmen when you factor in what he does on both ends but this D lineup needs more depth. Offensive depth

Blashill's strategies are completely based on what worked previous years with Babcock. The guy is clueless. Rookies are only in the lineup because of hype and he's completely ran out of Babcock's old ideas. He's done a awful job top to bottom all year. Wings are pretty much bad at everything and they save their worst performances for the biggest games of the year. This team has awful coaching written all over it
