In Topic: Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Yes. Said this months ago. Wings aren't a good team.

 

Then how do you explain the position of strength we find ourselves in now? Dominating some of the better teams in the league at times? Every team has their ups and downs, and the fact is, if we slumped like this in say December, it wouldn't look nearly half as bad as it does now. The reason everyone is freaking out is because there's 9 games left, it couldn't have come at a worse time, and Ottawa have been on fire.

 

Look at the other teams in this league that have been near the top or are right now. Nashville hit a rough patch earlier this month. And the Rangers? No one was calling them the best team in the NHL in January, but they are now. It happens. While it's tough to watch, I'm still confident the Wings will buckle down here and we'll be fine.

 

The playoffs are a completely different animal, so I'm not going to suggest what happens when we get in.

Essentially, we need 5 wins from the remaining 9 games to have a 100% chance of making the playoffs. Let's get it started right now.

Apparently pav took line rushes so he's probably going to play today

 

He better. We need him back, badly, even more so now with Sheahan out.

age, confidence, maturity might be hampering us right now.  maybe that is why holland brought in cole and zidlicky.  maybe he saw it hoping for something??

 

should we make it to the playoffs i have to wonder if the guys we rely on can hack it.  i guess we'll find out.

 

I agree. Basically, guys like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan and DeKeyser are no longer supplementary players helping out the core. They've been given a big share of the pie and for the first 3/4 of the season they were eating it. But now, they've slipped, and the team is suffering likewise.

Z-Dats-Abby

Tatar-Sheahan-Cole

Nyquist-Helm-Jurco

Miller-Glendening-Andersson

 

I like it, although Andersson really needs to go. 

 

Anyone else wondering whether we should insert Cleary for a game and see what happens?
