People can blame this on the refs all they want, but the fact of the matter is this team is having a hell of a hard time scoring. Sure we would all have liked for Datsyuks goal to count, but we had multiple PP opportunities to score and nothing came from it.
Scoring one or two goals a game wont cut it in the NHL
It's easy to see Nes miss in the shoot out and say it was a stupid call but for all we know he could be dazzling every day in practice at the shootouts. Hindsight and all....we can complain if he keeps getting opportunities.
In practice he is probably going against Howard, so yeah.
Near the end of the game Guss-Sheahan-Tatar were together for a couple of shifts, which was awesome since they were about the only few people making a difference out there.
Kindl's TOI was 9:55, but every minute he was out there he was noticeable in a bad way.
E is not a top 2 guy, top 4 guy at best.
As good as Howard was tonight we need him to be good in the SO as well. This team learned last year that these SO points are valuable for bubble teams.
Besides Datsyuk, no one can seem to run a PP and no one can win a face-off.
At least Holland tried. He can't help it if a player takes less money elsewhere. There's definitely something rotten in the Wings. The last year has really been embarrassing, a sensation I'm not used to as a Wings fan since the mid-nineties. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2
That is his problem. Holland cannot land talent to help his team out and that is the GMs job at the end of the day.
This playoff push is becoming the race to lose less games, not the race to win more. Everyone is losing!
With how inconsistent the Caps, Leafs, Wings, and Jackets are the teams that can put a little 3 game winning streak will make it. I will say Leafs might have to go a 5 game winning streak since they have played 75 games instead of 73 like the rest of the teams.
EDIT: It's funny in a way too. Usually there is no room for error in a situation like this, but everyone keeps losing together or winning together. NJ might still have a chance as well.
Who is #93? I know he got called up for his first NHL game tonight from Grand Rapids, but I wasn't sure what his name was. Big body and a seemingly power forward with a good shot. I'm excited to see what he can do in the future.
Professor vocie: Good news CWF! He is signed for another 7 years!!
