In Topic: Rating the Defense through 6 games

Yesterday, 10:58 PM

Our zone coverage has been really good.  Our passing and transition game from the back end has been horrible, to the extent that our beat writers were discussing our "turnover problem" by about game 3 of the season.  Two of our loses are directly attributable to massive defenseman turnovers that led to goals.  Also our defense has produced a combined 7 points, so anybody ready to pat them on the back for "creating offense" should think again.  So let's not sing kumbaya just yet eh boys?


Weird. I know there’s been a few hiccups (Ericsson in game 1 comes to mind) but I feel like the D to F puck movement has been much improved and has probably had an enhancing effect on team speed. If you look at analytics, the Wings have had really good possession stats through these first 6 games. Some of that has to be because of decent puck movement from the D.

Can you imagine an '07 Heatley with a Glendenning work ethic? Oh my... But I digress...

When is Franzen's 7 th IR day?


He should be available vs Philly on the weekend.

What the hell's wrong with our powerplay anyway?  I mean, we've got more skilled players than we've had for 4-5 years and we're somehow worse on the PP.  I don't get it. 


All I can figure is that zone entries are a problem. They were an issue last season as well. That plus the insane fact that there is only one right-handed shot on the team and his name sure as hell isn't Alexander Ovechkin.

It's very simple. Score on the PP at a rate better than the 4th worst in the league, 8.3%, and this team has at least one more win right now.
