Every team does at some point in the season. Thats something that seems to be lost on the vast majority of posters. When I read that some posters expecting 60min efforts every night or players at the their best every night I shake my head. Its not how it works.

Take the Wings as an example


The Wings fluctuated up and down and were around .500 before this win streak. They started the year 5-0 then then went 0-5-1 in their next 6, then won 4 straight then lost 2 now their 7gm win streak. Datsyuk had only 2 goals in the first 17gms of the year. It happens and teams/players have to fight throught it. We are struggling for sure but are still in 7th place even with a 3-6-1 record in our last 10gms. Thats with Ennis, Stafford and Leino not contributing much if anything offensively and Roy struggling to hit his stride. Thats also with Miller struggling through a chunk of starts. At some point things will get rolling.
