I really don't mind Eaves but Tootoo shouldn't be the odd man out. We have fillers in Sammy, Eaves, Tatar etc. all who play a certain style that's similar. I don't see how Tootoo should be the odd man out when he brings a different dimension that really, no redwing carries. It's a slow process for sure, but this breeds becoming "extinct". Are we expecting this many injuries that we will need the offence from all of Sam, Eaves, Tats, Nyquist, Glending that Tootoo's presence will not be needed? 43 is returning, life is good, and it's a good problem to have, but a problem Holland knew about even before he signed Cleary. Sammy to minors was never an option of his either, and its sad that players like Eaves, Tootoo, and even Tatar right now, are paying the price.

Why that goal didn't count is a cheap shot really. It wasn't like the puck was getting whacked away at, instead it was the following rebound from what was a typical hockey play and shot beforehand. No interference which should be the only case as to why this shouldn't count...If he acts motionless on the ice, don't let him play the rest of the game! Instead its play dead and you might just get lucky... Again at the very least with what resulted in that play, Smith shouldn't be able to finish the game. Your injury resulted in us disallowing a goal, precautionary reasons suggest you must sit....if only. 

Wings lost and this isn't an excuse, just arguing that the goal should have counted... The Eurotwins find the fountain of youth even when we lose, and Berts a beauty. Besides them and the first period save by Howie on Doan, this game's a write off. Wings looked tired after the first but I thought that would be expected. Hate to keep bringing it up but some youth would be a nice injection when you have a busy week of hockey. One other Brightside is we are potentially 2 games away from #43

watching the highlights from the playoffs last year with hawks shows a crime that Gus and his speed aren't on this squad right now...

I didn't really notice the bad reffing.  It's definitely not the worst we've ever seen.  Boston should've had a few, but there's nothing egregious I can think of that the refs missed.  You have to admit, some of those Wings penalties were stupid of them to take.

You can pinpoint everything if you want, but if your up 3 to 1 yet have taken 6 penalties to 0, to me that suggests the goal lead is the only part of the stats sheet your winning. Except I believe Detroit haven't moved their feet any better then they did today, so the whole levelling the playing field wasn't preached for this one.
