Ian White out 2-3 weeks
 
The cut on his knee is going to keep our blueline thin. Our luck has been pretty miserable on the injury front, though at least Helm's coming back soon.

WingedWheel1987 01-23-2013 09:33 AM

Wow..................the hits just keep on coming. White was atleast solid.

Cant score goals

and you have no defense.

These next seven games will determine if we are legit contenders for Seth Jones.

Mort Divine 01-23-2013 09:39 AM

So

Kronwall - Lashoff
Smith - Ericsson
Huskins - Kindl/Quincey
?

BF3 01-23-2013 09:43 AM

I thought injuries would be an issue for the Wings coming off the short training camp (and it is, look at all the groin pulls), but they are having some bad luck on top of it.

Ericsson steps on a puck, White's knee gets cut by Howard's skate, Bert's mono-scare/real flu, Coca Cola being who he is. Seriously, this is a poop sandwich without the bread that the Wings are being served at this point.

If you break the season down, Detroit needs to average 14 points every quarter (12 games) of the season to make the playoffs. In other words, we need to win 6 of our next 9 to keep up an the pace of an 8 seed.

If the team doesn't turn around the scoring issues and injury luck quick, there wont be enough time to make it up.

At least Helm, Bert and Kindl are back Friday. (so there will still be six guys for defense)

This one is awfully bad luck though..

That's really bad news for a team that hasn't had any good news going back to last year's trade deadline. The Silver Lining is if we're as bad as we look we'll have a solid shot at acquiring an elite defenseman. That hasn't happened via free agency or trades so if we're ever going to acquire one again it will likely be the same way we acquired Nick Lidstrom.

RedMenace 01-23-2013 09:52 AM

Hey, at least there are some actual excuses now. :sarcasm:

I really, REALLY hope they sit Quincey for Kindl.

Heaton 01-23-2013 09:53 AM

I don't think it really matters, White is decent, but he's no better than anyone else.

He's the more experienced puck-mover out of the group, and I do think losing him is a little worse than losing, say, Kindl or Quincey.

The White-Huskins pairing was exponentially better then the Smith-KFQ pair.

We'll see what happens on Friday - but I'm not expecting any huge decline in the defense from what we've seen so far.

SoupNazi 01-23-2013 10:07 AM

Sadly, our luck just keeps getting worse.

This is a good point. The Quincey-Smith pairing has been terrible. You have to wonder what it will take to get it broken up. I also liked what little I saw from Cola. It's probably for the best he got injured so soon as we probably would have missed him more if he could have stayed healthy for more than 1.5 games. :help:

Definitely just had a really good laugh at "KFQ".

Definitely agree that this was the better pairing last night. I was actually worried that Huskins wouldn't look all that great.

Our latest top pairing is doing reasonably well. It's been the Quincey pairing that has been horrific.

InjuredChoker 01-23-2013 10:18 AM

Wow.. there goes the only RH shot we had on our blueline.

No, I can't imagine we would.

... I wonder if they would sign and call up Billins to replace White... ;)

Big Poppa Puck 01-23-2013 10:25 AM

The injuries just don't stop.

Kronwall-Ericsson
Quincey-Smith (:facepalm:)
Huskins-Kindl/Lashoff

?

Well, short of actually shooting the puck into their own net past a surprised Howard, I don't see how much more of a decline we could possibly see.

At this point i'm just sitting here laughing. This is unreal, can we please get a break.

I don't think Ericsson is cleared to play yet. There's a chance we'll play our 7th, 8th D plus an AHL signing in the 4th game of the season. Just laughable.

Kronwalled55 01-23-2013 10:42 AM

I assume Kindl is going to take his spot.

I'm thrilled. :whatever:

Look, I'm not going to say that I can totally see Quincey panic with the puck in front of the net and slide one past Jimmy... I'll just keep that fear to myself.

<--- You happy now? I like to use lyrics or quotes that make me laugh, but tbh it's tough to find ones that fit given the limited character #'s. Don't like paraphrasing, and well, this is about as much effort as I will expend to make you happy. :box:
