Well expect more of the same boys. With this roster situation and cap problems I don't see any help on the horizon anytime soon. On the plus side, I just watched Babs' presser and according to him it's the teams' fault and they just need to "play better". Because clearly the problem is that 23 guys just forgot how to play hockey, which means that at any time they could just remember again.
You have to wonder when the coach is going to take his share of the blame... If 23 guys "forget" how to play hockey, then you're doing a piss poor job as coach reminding them that they can indeed play.
Lastly, the officiating this year is awful. How do the Wings not get a single powerplay again during a game?! The Red Wings are lucky to get more than 1 powerplay this season, despite the fact that Pavs and Hank are continuously hooked and held. This has to change... Babcock needs to let this be known that it is unacceptable.
For one, we just took our agitator that brings grit to the game night after night, that gets under the skin of opposing players drawing penalties and placed him on waivers...
We're better than this and have entirely too much talent to have (multiple) games of this nature.
Alfie for instance, he gave up his legacy in Ottawa to come here and win and we put him on a line with Dan Freaking Cleary :/
Quincey needs to go back to Colorado, let's see how much success the Avalanche have with him on the blue line.
Nyquist? Don't even get me started...
