#2557358 12/16 GDT : Blue Jackets 1 at Red Wings 0 (SO)

Another loser point for the losers. Wings are sorry, there's really nothing more to it. They overachieved big time up until a week ago and squeaked out a few lucky wins as well. In my opinion, Columbus when healthy are better than the Wings. They would give a team a way harder time in the playoffs than the Wings would. You knew this was going to be a loss after the first period, at least I knew it was going to be. Z's absolutely done, this guy will never be what he was, or even close. Columbus won their 7th straight, no way in hell are the Wings capable of 7 in a row.

Seriously.  Bobrovsky.  Traded.  For picks.  And replaced by Bryzgalov.  Lol.

Which is a bad loss


I was talking about Columbus....They won't win very many games in regulation.  They need them to go to OT to win recently it seems....who are you guys talking about?  :ninja:

Anybody remember that time Paul Holmgren traded Bobrovsky for a second and fourth round pick so that he could land Bryzgalov? 


Worst part?  That's the third or fourth worst trade of Holmgren's tenure as GM.

Because we suck.


1st place in their division.  3rd in the conference.  6th in the league.


PK is 2nd in the league.  PP 8th.  Goals For 6th.  Goals Against 7th.

Babcock to edm as a coach/gm?


Bettman persuades Babock & he goes to coach/gm Edmonton. Toronto is outraged by the news (they already had dibs on babs) and begins to riot.. Vancouver, not wanting to be outdone, would try to outriot Toronto. Both of them trying to top the other eventually causes Canada to implode. All of the hockey players get out in time and are deemed free agents by the league. The best players sign with the worst teams that are left. All goes according to plan and bettman finally has the parity he's always dreamed of. Babcock emerges from the ashes better than ever and coaches the wings to three straight Stanley Cups.

....and then I wake up :P

Kip let it go buddy. I'm not going to sit here and come up with a dissertation on why I believe fights should be a part of hockey. It's hockey for pete sake. Entertainment. I like the fighting...I like the big hits...I like the skill...I like the scoring....I hate Crosby. 


Oh, I get it.  You like sports, and you like fighting, and you like entertainment.  You like sports entertainment.  Gotcha.

Just an FYI...last December 13th the Wings had 39 points. This December 13th they have 41 points. So they are more similar point wise than you think.  Luckily the team seems a better "team." Back to my point of losing the SO's and injuries happening, lets all hope that is where the similarities end.

Are our PK and PP similar too? Goals for and against? Or how about just our place in the standings in general? If people don't look at the majority of games we've played this year and realize we're faster and obviously better in general there's something wrong and people are just looking for problems. It's weird that these posts start cropping up only after a few losses.

Yeah because the direction the game is going is so much more fun to watch.


Lets take the action out of every sport. Then we will be left with a bunch of under sized pansies passing flowers to each other.  


I like how in your mind "the action" of hockey and penalties are the same thing.  You want the league to leave game misconducts alone, so that you can enjoy the "action".  Lol.  Nevermind what happens between the whistles, that s***'s boring.  The real stuff comes after the play is dead.  And one day, if we're really lucky, all the fun stuff about hockey will happen after the game is completely over.  Then we can just watch Dan Carcillo and Zac Rinaldo beat the s*** out of each other in the parking lot.  What a sport that will be.

And only one guy in the current NHL management knows more about winning than him because Sather has more rings


...and when was the last time he "managed" the Rags to a Cup?

#2556918 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

I don't get all the talk about guys not being "top pairing" defenders. It's similar to having a forward like Abdelkader playing with Zetterberg-Datsyuk. Parity causes teams to look for balance through their line-ups - chemistry, spreading the talent, whatever. Tons of teams in the NHL do it.

Suter-Brodin/Spurgeon, McDonagh-Girardi, Bouwmeester-Pietrangelo, Orprik-Carlson, Martin-Letang, etc. All of those pairings have a defensive/shutdown guy whose numbers aren't anything to write home about. That's the NHL today. The pairings putting up big numbers like Giordano-Brodie or Markov-Subban are becoming a rarity in the league.

All I know is that I don't want to see the Oilers end up with Connor McDavid.  As the most hyped prospect since Crosby, I'd actually like to see this kid get a shot at becoming a star player on a team that's actually trying to rebuild instead of languishing in Edmonton and wasting the first 3 years of his career.

3. Out of 12 shots

How many goals have we scored? Last two games were 1 for 5.
