tatar only played 1:33 in 3rd and 0:00 in OT.

I used to hate him now he's probably our best Defenseman.
he sucked in '10, and it looked like he might be out of the NHL by '11, but he has improved very much. he is also a lot more physical. he still turns over the puck too much, though.

he's the best defensive d-man on the team. not a high standard, but i think he's doing well as #2. i don't know why babcock was using lashoff with kronwall instead of ericsson.

A lot of people need to eat crow, this guy's been playing his best Red Wing hockey recently.(I think he'll only get better.)
i am still not impressed by brendan smith. he is basically a 4th F, and although he has not been given much chance to show his offensive ability, he has not been particularly impressive offensively.
