#2666590 25 YEARS BABY!

So 29 straight appearances is the record in North American sports?


i see him leading in postseason

Will be awesome to see the how the youngster respond to playoff hockey... Can't be any worse than Gus and Tatar against Boston

 

AA to me seems to be the type of big moment player. You see he has extra energy when the wings need a boost. You know he'll be flying for his 3 shifts a game

Imagine trading Seguin for nothing

 

Blake Wheeler, Douggie Hamilton....

 

That's a great core right there

At least Nyqvist can go through the motions without people noticing him out there too much. Tatar is just a train wreck. Guy forgot how to handle the puck

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




#2665738 Fixing this mess....

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
