I'm out with my wife and daughter, celebrating my daughter making the honor roll, so I'll be lurking when I can hop onto wi-fi. The DVR is going, but any detail of the action is appreciated. Let's Go Wings!

Just delete it. Watch probert fights on YouTube. Much better way to spend your time:). Lol

Nice GDT and I'm excited to see Brunner again. Even though he fell off quite a bit I still liked the guy.

Wings losing streak ends here IMO with a 2-1 or 1-0 win. With my boy smith scoring pleeeeeeease!

we got to get back to how we were in Oct I mean the passion has to still be there to put the strangle hold on these teams we cant let a very good oct slip into a abysmal nov got to make some sort of move on D I wish they would quitf****** sitting on there hands with calling up oulette

I agree with calling up oullete but that win fix the offense. The defense hasn't been a problem until Quincey went out and we went with kindl and lashoff.

Guys this is serious...

Franzen could've slipped and tore his groin and got another concussion. In the shower.

Or cleary could've torn his boob. O wait they said the locker room not the press box.

Semin has three years left on his contract after this year, and Yandle is about the same as Smith defensively (in that neither is terrible, nor are they great) and regularly puts up 50 pts.  The difference being that Yandle is an amazing transition player and PP quarterback who shoots right.  Weren't you the one bitching in the GDT about how our defensemen can't move the puck in transition?  Well here you go, Yandle is on of the best in the entire league at producing offense from the back end.  
Again, I'd rather move Quincey or Kindl than Smith, but you have to give to get.  And anybody who thinks Smith >/= Yandle is nuts. 

No I hope it didn't come out like that I'll have to check for spelling errors. I actually said it's been pretty good for the most part from kronwall dekeyser smith and Quincey.

We just don't have the forwards to do much with it other then Abby z dat and nyquist.

I love the kids but Tatar is a turnover machine and jurco and Sheahan are just having bad luck. They're playing well and get good chances. Just no lucky bounces.

Here is my gdt post:

Our defense has actually been making great passes to leave the zone(smith dekeyser kronwall and Quincey) for the most part. Offense just SUCKS.

Now where was I complaining about the defense?

Quincey was the biggest surprise to me. Obviously not a star. But he was SO BAD last year. This year? Playing quite well.

Cleary has also been a major surprise. I'm SHOCKED he hasn't played.

Go wings!!!

Wings aren't going to hand the net to Mrazek . and Smith is the only solid offensive d-man? Kronwall would like to say something about that.

Maybe smith should be given equal time as him in pp and we will see.

Smith barely contributes to the offense at all, he doesn't score goals and he's not on the PP. How exactly is he an offensive defenseman??

Last year. 5 on 5 he had THE MOST points of our defenseman in less time in ice..... And still doesn't get pp time lol

That was an awesome game!
I was there live and with about 5min left people started leaving in droves. Its funny, I whispered to my cousin "I dont know why people leave with time left in a 3-1 game, anything can happen" and then we see one of the best finishes in years. Such a good game!

Ya I never understood the leaving early thing. Idc if it's 10-0 I stay until the end(hoping there's fights of course!!!).

And the team is having a great start despite playing some tough teams this month. Are we not allowed to be excited?

Oh yeah, you're one of those who have been predicting doom and gloom. Sorry your predictions have been completely wrong thus far. But not really.

Except no ones predictions have been wrong or right....ITS OCTOBER.

And since it's clear you don't pay attention. When people were complain when we were 1-1-1 I said the same exact thing then. ITS OCTOBER.

Holy crap don't look now but that Red Wings team is sitting 2nd in the Atlantic 2 behind those nasty Habs with only Ottawa having 2 games in hand but everyone even in games played

It's October.....

Franzen is lazy and sucks...

Well he hasn't scored these last two games.

Absolutely, but who do you think?

Nyquist just because I think kronwall and z will retire at about the same time and obviously dat before them.

I think our scoring woes can be fixed with the right line combos and the arrival of mantha. Load the top 6 with actual scorers, put the grinders in the bottom 6.


That gives us a stud first line and an arguably better 2nd line with loads of skill/scoring. 3rd line is just huge and fast, but will chip in offense here n there. 4th line has been great but would be better with helm in over Andy.

This is what i hope to see come christmas. As for Weiss, unless he finds his game i see nowhere for him in the lineup.

I don't think mantha will be up this year. Not with our current roster crunch.

Also it would be good to see how he does in the ahl he very well may not be ready for nhl
