Red Wings Collapse

 

     Who wants to be the conference's #1 seed?  Anyone, anyone at all.  The recent play of both the Detoit Red Wings and the San Jose Sharks say, "Nah, you go ahead and take the top spot. "

     At this point, I don't care; really.  The playoffs are approaching - quickly .  Sure there are some banged up bodies; it's March (of course there is!)  and the defensive lapses we have seen thus far are a reason for concern.

      The offense looks good -Great at times,  27% on the power play is hard to stop, but how many goals are we going to allow?  They come from every possible way:  Lack of tenacity, poor decisions with  the puck, poor decisions without the puck, goaltending, inopertune penalties. . . You name it.

      The last two Saturday games the Wings just didn't show up.  Tonight against Calgary they just plain let up.  This can't happen over and over or it's going to be a very short post season.

Yell Babs, Fix this thing, now!

Red Wings Struggle



The story of a Stanley Cup Champion.  A difficult road of a team with a bullseye squarely on its back.

Suspect goaltending, Poor defensive zone commitment are commonplace to the reigning Cup Champs.

The most disturbing to me is the Detroit Red Wings could be ( clear throat ) tied with the the Chicago Blackhawks in the Central Division come 4 pm on Jan 1rst. The Winter Classic could be the turning point of the season.  It WILL BE, in my opinion, for the better.

The Wings need something to push them. The Hawks' impressive play was admirable until they showed they could actually challenge us. We rose to challenge of the San Jose Sharks (6-0) need I remind anyone? We will rise to this and any that may come our way.

Get Well Soon #5 Nick  ( #1 In My Book!)


Happy New Year to All

Red Wings: West Coast Trip

Decent start to the recent Detroit Red Wings west coast trip.  The first one of the new season. A few observations thus far ...

   1)  Defense. Out of sync. Perfect time to get healthy against the likes of the San Jose Sharks and the the Anaheim Ducks

   2)  Goalie. Ty Conklin has got to play, just not so often. I realize Bab's wanted to get him in but let Ozzie rest in February and March.
   3)  Marion Hossa. What can I say? Looks like the player who we thought he was - Crown his a$$!

Last night the defense was still suspect. Improvement is seriously needed.  The next two games will show us a lot.  One thing that has been reinforced upon me the last two games is our shootout skill.  When one team can put Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, and Marion Hossa back to back to back ... that my friend's is some scary stuff.
