They're trying, gotta give them that.




#2633837 Why are the Wings making such bad decisions with the puck?

Posted by derblaueClaus on 28 October 2015 - 05:58 PM

I think Justin Bourne does a good job explaining what I think our problem is mostly due to here:  http://www.thescore....nhl/news/864998

 

Nothing to add. Of course our players don't look good at the moment. But I give them 20 to 40 games to sort it out. You don't change you headcoach after 10 seasons and see the team play immediately flawless under the new one. Especially if the coach left is named Mike Babcock.

PANIC!!!!!!!!!

TANK IT !!!!!! #tankit2016

 

 

 

Seriously, Blashill hasn't even coached his 10th NHL game and we are already calling for his head ? As BoS said, this is a new level of "The sky is falling", even for LGW. Be patient and don't expect the team to dominate the Atlantic, let alone the East. Not with a new and inexperienced coach, many new players and our amount of injuries.

Well, sometime you have to pay if your goalie is trying to handle the puck as much as Mrazek does. But I rather have that than a goaltender who just stays in his crease.

Am I the only one who thinks we looked good till the end of the second ? If some of the posts or pucks that got behind Hiller got in we were up 3:1 or even 4:1 at that point and the game is probably over. The puck just didn't go in. It happens, its unfortunate, especially during a losing streak, but it happens. Third period was bad of course, I blame a lot of this on Greens injury and the resulting fatigue and changed pairs of our D-Man. Overall I still like what I see with this team, we skate faster, move the puck a lot better and are more aggressive in the offensive zone.

The reason by the NHL for not calling off the goal sounds like an answer to a question never asked.

Some day I hope to be having steak and scotch with you in person, preferably celebrating a cup win, brother.

 

When we get to the Cup final one year and my finances allow it I'll hop over the pond and make use of that offer.

Just got in, what's the short recap? I have a steak on the grill and a dram of the Macallan poured, so I'm ready to rock his game.

 

Great, now I'm hungry and thirsty.

 

Montreal keeps us pressured and trapped in our zone pretty good. We got lucky on two PP against were Ericsson saved a goal and one of the Habs players wasn't able to hit an open net. We got some rushes, don't play that bad but the Habs are the better team right now.

I missed it who's singing the anthem?

Me too, and you're right, we always did. But the "switch" wasn't as powerful as last night during the second half of the second period. in past years I genuinely think the Wings just weren't able to play much better, due to system and some holes in the lineup. We weren't that strong but also not that young the past seasons, so I think a lot of our loss has something to do with the age and experience of some of our players.

I have a feeling Green and DeKeyser is going to be a killer pairing, and Quincey will stabilize the third pair.

 

It's refreshing to see a Red Wings D-man able to male the pass on the lead out and being a offensive thread from the blue line. The more I watch Green the more I'am aware how much we missed that type of player over the last years.

Green is having a good game again, so thats a positive.

I hope that finally lights some fire under them, because until now we played it like a training game.

Just got in...  judging from the posts and the fact we got scored on within the first minute, is this the-team-of-year-past that showed up?

It's pretty much the same team that showed last time we played against Carolina. Sloppy plays, below average defense, but our goalie stands tall so far.
