Was on the phone with another LGWer when the Wings were playing Buffalo and I did mention a few things...

1. Rafalski has been a big liability and things have looked tighter since he has been out

2. I am not sold on Salei, I firmly believe another D could of been had and been more of a stay at home / clear the crease / block shot D-Man

3. Still on the fence with Howard... When he is on, he is stellar, but when he is cold, ear muffs / cover eyes - he gives up some juicy-juicy rebounds, hoping the more experience he gets + working with a goalie coach, he smothers them up. That was one up swing with Nabby, the man smothers rebounds and gives very little... Wish Howard would do the same

4. Miller is solid and really hope we keep him around... Good on the PK and chips in from time to time... I really think he could be utilized like Dandy was, use him on D here and there

5. Kindl has had made rookie mistakes, be the last few games he has really been coming around; believe he is starting to get more comfortable/confidence and it is showing

Am I the only one who thinks it is a bit freaky?

Front lines are depleted, D is hurting, the goalie situation is less than ideal, and the 1st move they DO make is getting a tender? :unsure:

F/D is needed before this I thought or roast McCrummy and get a new defensive coach in here.

Family member is ill and wants to spend time with her before she passes, do not see any real problem with this...

I have to say, people were been skeptical of the Wings keeping Miller around.

Well, hope that tune has changed.

I can't remember if that was the play that led up to it, but there was definitely a moment where Hudler was in prime scoring position, and in a moment of Franzen-like decision making decided to pass the puck and turned it over.

And this was after he got his first goal. you'd think that would've gotten him in a shoot the puck mentality.


Yup.

He should of shot the puck and didn't. Bab's needs to send out a memo or do a video demonstration

Some of the loss was the Wing's own ignorance by not getting their stuff together at game time, like usual. But at the same time, Mason came up huge on more than one save which was the difference in the game.

With the pattern that has been going, if he is injured we should win tonight

Injury = Win

LOL @ only a couple people saying bye to OP. He realized that no one cared that he left, so he decided to come back.


Look @ the date of when the thread was created... 5 1/2 yrs ago and after a long no season of hockey. Things around here got a bit nutty.

Like I stated before, a few of those posters in this thread do not venture out into the open forum anymore or stopped posting due to the lack of quality

Gotta love some of the :newbie:

I'm dumbfounded as to how Carey Price made it over Jimmy Howard.


What is Price's GAA and SV% versus Howard?

You don't just package and ship elite, puck-moving defensemen...


While I agree with you on this statement, Raffie the puck-moving defensemen has been having trouble moving the puck out of our zone or making outlets passes which have let to scoring chances/goals. It happened last night

Wings lost that game in the first 10 minutes of the game.

These players really need to start waking up and playing. I think they sat back thinking the Avs were a so-so team because they played a hell of a lot harder against the Nucks.

Need to win more faceoffs, scrums, and clear the damn puck.
