Hey guys Wings fan coming in peace here. Just wanted to say good luck in the game later this afternoon. Wings aren't usually good in the early games, and Howard has been awful lately especially with rebounds. You guys have alot of talented forwards who can score and crash and bang. Hopefully the Wings at least show up and put some effort into this one. Good luck later and the rest of the season!

So I had another dream involving the Flyers. Flyers score the tying goal with 5 seconds left and then win it on OT. I woke up thinking that if they played well my dream might not be far off from reality. Then I remembered the final score in the dream was Flyers 3-2 and I thought "Flyers with just 2 goals allowed vs. Detroit on the road? nah." I have a feeling the streak continues.

Boucher could be the goalie for this game, per Tim P.

Also, Frank at the Daily News is speculating that Zherdev could be replaced by Shelley.

Tim P is saying Gustafsson could replace Bartulis.

oooo Gusty getting in there? Nice

Shelly playing for Zherdev is beyond mind boggling . . . especially since he does MORE stupid than Z and brings 0 to the table. I'm fine with Z floating now and again and a few bad passes. . . but Shelly has gotten 2 suspensions in his last 2 games and only plays 4-5 minutes. That is just absurd.

I actually like having Shelley in the lineup. He needs to be smarter and kick someones ass! Anyway I had a dream Upshall was a Flyer again! Lol Z for Upshall... Put some heart back into this team!

You have a good point and yes he is useless but it may keep Kronwall from trying to take heads off! Maybe!!

So dumb to sit Zherdev instead of Shelley. Zherdev brings offense and Shelley brings nothing. Sucks with offense and defense.

Can we please break the losing streak already!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Lavi replaces Zherdev with Shelley, he should be fired then forced to hang a picture of Shelley over his bed until the day he dies.

If you consider scoring goals with limited ice time not fitting in, you are right.

Hey im not saying he isnt scoring but look how often he gets scratched or benched. Somewhere he isnt pleasing the coach! Maybe its the lack of D or the dumb pen.

At this stage, it becomes an issue with how much disgust Laviolette has for Zherdev. The quote he issued in the last two days about "you guys figure it out" speaks volumes. Sending a message isn't the singular issue anymore. Fred Shero scratched Reggie Leach more than once, so in that regard, anything is possible.

Not many guys come to mind with that one. Ericsson has a few fights but it's rare that he does fight. Abdelkader has fought once this season, but the Wings try not to get involved with that because they'd rather rely on their PP instead. Which is smart because they don't really have established fighters on the roster.

Won't happen. He'll be warming the bench.

He's in the dog house for cherry picking and not playing a lick of defense. Lavi doesn't take that too kindly. And I like Z.

Because he's benching someone who plays for the name on the back instead of the crest on the front?

Laviolette hockey isn't just scoring goals, which when Z isn't doing. He is useless.

It's not the coach, Z took a dumb penalty last game and didn't sniff the ice until the third period.

So basically he'd be more useless than usual. Word.

Um, about that... I don't think losing one game counts as a streak already.
