Helm is so important to this team. His speed, grit, not afraid to do anything out there on the ice. He's so important to the Wings if they're going to have any success this year. I know this game isn't done but damn I want to beat Ottawa sof****** bad Sunday. Go Wings!
I really hate taking credit for OT losses. In all reality this team is 9-10 right now. They've only won 9 out of their first 19 games. It's 20 games into the season and this is where you can tell who's who. And the Wings don't look foreal. They're nothing more than a mediocre team.
Sloppy game, couldn't convert on the PP or the penalty shot. Miller kept Buffalo in the game. Going to have to do way better than that against the better teams. Those fans leaving with a minute left only up one boggles myf****** mind and makes us look stupid on national TV. Empty seats again really bothered me. Oh well, everything will get better as the season goes along. Big weekend in Detroit sports coming up. Go Wings!
I want to see Helm & Dekeyser play a full season. Those two will be huge additions we didn't have in the playoffs. I don't mind the additions we made today. I think we all agree Weiss is better than Fil. I don't know why but I can care less about Fil leaving. And add our young guys in the mix and of course Howard you cannot say we're not a better team. I'm actually really excited.
I hate to sound pessimistic but I'm not quite ready to be positive about the season. Wings had a chance to beat the number 1 team in the league and they choked. That's right, they choked. They had three chances to beat them and failed. Sorry but in my opinion this was one of the biggest let downs for me as a Red Wings fan. Yeah I know that "We weren't supposed to make this far" anyway but they did and they couldn't finish the job. Wings could have beat a team that is their arch rival and that has OWNED them for the past 3-4 seasons and they choked. On to the eastern conference.
