Ah well, Ken better do something this off-season. Any Wings team that isn't excellent is a disappointment, and this team isn't excellent.
I did not see that.

There's something really wrong with the way this team is constructed.
Z was the only good player in the series. Datsyuk pulled a Hossa.

I wish he had more offensive spark because our D was just not getting it done, top to bottom, but there you have it.
I do not think he had a good series, but he lead our Dmen (tied with Kronwall) with 2 points.

Babcock played Fraznen with Datsyuk till the 3rd period and then it was too, too, tooooooooo late.
He had to play Fraznen with Filppula and Z with Datsyuk, but .... is there anything good BAbcock did in the series?

Filppula was not good at all. He looked almost like Cleary.

Of course, Babcock doesn't seem fond of playing the young guys, so he still might have banished him to the 4th line anyway.
Nyquist was one of a very few players showing something and then Babcock decides to play Bertuzzi with Datsyuk.

Well the way the Wings played last 2 months we had to hope there was the switch, but now we all know there is not.

Well, that's it.

I do not think it was a promising season.
Holland and Babcock screwed it up big time.
