I'd say no, but I would say yes if this defensive trend were to continue in the long run of things. Lets see how it all plays it first though. Obviously accountability goes both ways, on him and the players. There has been a remarkable decline in defense ever since Todd McLellan left and it's almost as if the defense is lost out there sometimes.


You do realize that McLellan worked with the offense, don't you?

HNIC has gone downhill of late with pj stock but at least i dont have to earmuff when friedman opens his mouth anymore.


Agreed about Stock, but at least he's confined to a couple minutes during intermission. Once Coach's Corner is over I'm usually flipping channels until the period starts. I don't watch Hotstove much anymore since Strachan is back on. I'm still waiting for his claims that Lindros to Detroit is a lock and the Lightning are moving to Auburn Hills to come true.

May 3, 1987 - After falling behind 3 games to 1 in the Norris Final, the Wings come back to win the series in 7.

its a shame the MSU bowl game was on the same time or those Detroit numbers would be higher

still really good numbers tho


It's too bad they can't (or won't) include US viewers watching CBC. Most knowledgeable hockey fans in the Detroit area watch CBC over any US national broadcast of hockey. I bet if they included CBC viewers the Wings would have easily won the ratings battle.


In Topic: Anyone going to the Winter Classic?

For those of you going who have never been to Wrigley, DRESS WARM!!! I've been to games at Wrigley in late April with the temp in the 50's outside the stadium. When you get inside the stadium the temp drops easily 20 degrees. At one of the games in April we went to our beers actually formed slush on the surface! If the wind is blowing in off the lake it's going to be brutal.
