It's so funny how people think Datsyuk is going to resign after his contract. The only leverage we had was we were still a cup contender. With that gone, Dats is going to Russia.

Yeah, forgot about that. With that being acknowledged I don't see him being the missing piece that improves our defense.

Ik, I had a feeling this was gonna be ugly. Didn't think anywhere near this ugly though. Clearly the lines aren't working. If we don't shuffle thew deck and shake things up it'll be a LONG short season.

Sadly, I know...

Ironically, this is post # 43 for me. I can't wait for that guy to get back in the line up.

Death for Seth this year I guess. Wow do the Wings look outclassed. I wonder how many letters begging Lidstrom to come out of retirement it would take for him to consider it?

One player who has looked "okay" is Ian White. At least a little stability in the defense, feels like we don't have a lot of it.
Ian White looks overmatched on every shift
Ericsson and Kronwall are the only guys who resemble NHLers right now

Nobody has said much about Tootoo. He's been decent. Had a couple of ***** where he looked like Helm out there.

Chin up Wings fans, Just suck enough to win the Lottery, and piss the entire Hockey world off by landing Mackinnon or Seth Jones...

It would be sooooo Funny to watch the Hf board explode with anger.

The philosophy was in place before the roster got here. Lean on 13 and 40 (and 55 to an extent) to be the deciding factor, and use rangy defensive forwards to suck the life out of the rest of the game.

Cleary, Bertuzzi, Franzen, Samuelsson, Abdelkader, Miller, Eaves are all here instead of other players as specific parts of Babcocks system. Different system different players.

On the bright side, the Tigers just got a lot better.

Indians signed Raburn.

meh a bit worse than I was expecting but was expecting a game like this

this was always going to be a sloppy game for the Wings and the Blues were simply a bad opponent for this first game for numerous reasons

fortunately the next opponent is Columbus,look for a strong game there as the Wings find their form a bit

Heck no.

-More money, tax free
-Can actually communicate well and speaks the language fluently. I know Dats is a well liked guy, but it must be hard to express himself when he still doesnt speak english fluently and we literally have NO other Russians for him to shoot the **** with.
-Familiarity
-Gets to be near his daughter after him and his wife's divorce

Agree. Even though Kronner made some big time errors. Even some of our best forwards look a step or two behind the competition.

It's tempting to blame it on Emmerton, cause he's the rookie..But Miller and Cleary were lost.

Cleary has been BRUTAL.

We could get Seth Jones and he still wouldn't play for us until he turns 23.
