In Topic: 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Yesterday, 09:34 PM

5-8-2 for the month of March.  And they probably wouldn't have won in Pittsburgh if the Penguins hadn't decided to do Detroit a huge favor and implode that day.

 

Has there been a worse month of hockey for the Red Wings in recent history?

 

Hopefully they can put 03/2015 behind them because they were straight up garbage.

Weiss can't win a board battle yet he's put in a position that only allows him to try and win board battles. He is way too skilled to be on the 4th line.
 
Anderson is not a PK specialist, he's just there because he's a 4th liner and not a top line guy. He doesn't block shots, he doesn't pressure anyone he just stands there waving his stick most of the time. No matter what way you slice it, Anderson blows and shouldn't be on this team because he contributes absolutely nothing.


Pure curiosity here.... would you rather have Andersson.... or Emmerton?

I don't see another goal coming from Anderson; got lucky with the last.  Need the chemistry that Dats provides with his line mates - he makes other players better.  Wait, was that just a Cpt Obvious remark - sorry

Lucky? It seemed like a pretty good play to me. The guy is far from integral, but let's give credit where it's due.

Now, Jurco's last goal....THAT was lucky.

I think the difference with this team and the other teams we had with terrible stretches is that we just arent that good.

 

 

We stole points with heroics probably 7 times in the first 30 games. That was clutch as ever, but it has to be mentioned.

 

The cup winning teams had the best roster in the NHL and we knew it. Everyone else knew it. Do you really see a cup contending team when you watch us play?

Crosby/Malkin/Hossa/J. Staal/Malone/Sykora/Talbot/Dupuis/Roberts/Kennedy/Ruutu/A. Hall/Gonchar/Letang/Scuderi/Orpik/Whitney/Gill/Fleury for PIT in 2008

 

Crosby/Malkin/Guerin/J. Staal/Kunitz/Sykora/Talbot/Dupuis/Fedotenko/Kennedy/Satan/Cooke/Gonchar/Letang/Scuderi/Orpik/Gill/Eaton/Fleury for PIT in 2009

 

I don't think "everyone knew" that Detroit had the best roster then.  The argument could definitely have been made, though, I'll agree (and not as much so this year, probably).  No, I don't see a cup contending team when I watch the Wings play right now.  I see a team playing in the regular season.  I'm actually going to wait and see what happens in the playoffs, though, myself.

Didn't hear a word about Howard being sick back then. And those goals that he let in were all huge momentum killers and lost us games 2 and 3 before we even got into them.

 

Then you weren't listening.  And the fact that the team only scored one goal combined in games 2 and 3 is completely irrelevant to the fact that Detroit lost those games. 

 

Not saying that Howard was lights out or anything... or that he should be in the net based on his play at present,  but your statement/implication that he single-handedly lost those games is a false one.

 

What percentage of the time do teams win when they score 1 goal?  How about when they score zero goals?
