What the hell Larry Murphy is a hipster. "Well, uh, I kinda liked puck-moving D-men before they were popular you know"..

Easily the best overall team effort we've seen this season. I don't know if the stats will back it up, but Detroit seemed to block a lot of shots and help out Mrazek in the defensive zone.

Tatar adds an element to the 3rd line. An element called puck control. I really like how he looked at his options when he entered the offensive zone. He's got a lot of confidence with the puck and his back check at the end of the game was great.

The coaching move by Babcock ended up being brilliant. When I first seen it I was surprised, but it definitely worked out how he had hoped. Great team effort.

It's one game...

At the very least, Babcock can have a little confidence in Howard's backup now.

I don't. He's fairly high profile and the Blues are a division rival. If anyone has prepared for him they have.

Isn't spearing an automatic 1 game suspension? Wonder if Franzen will get suspended as that wasn't really a spear, more of a slash?

Tatar was one of our best players tonight, and not just because he's a rookie. He made a lot happen.

I really liked Tatar out there. He looks equally good to brunner IMO (only more passy, less shooty)

Really hope he stays on the roster.

KH make room for him to stay!!

Tatar with an assist and 2 shots.
Brunner with a goal and 2 shots.
Lashoff with 20:18 minutes of ice time, 3rd most on the team, but only 4 seconds behind White, and a +1 rating.
Mrazek with 27 saves, and a .963 SV%.

I think Kenny might be learning a valuable lesson this season in allowing the rookies to play in the NHL.

Mrazek seemed more nervous for the interview than he did the whole game

He was great tonight, and so was the whole team really except for a couple of guys. Fantastic game!

If you guys think we are going to continually healthy scratch or waive someone so Tatar can stay up on the Wings, then you guys don't know the Wings very well.

I dont know Frk It, he looked much better than Mursak or Emmerton ever have in their first games, and he scored tonight.

If you read this board at that time, there was not a single person on here who would have seen that coming.

That's not what it's about. He looked great, and I believe he deserves to be there.

But that's not how the Red Wings operate. If holland's two choices are waive someone, or stash tatar in GR. He's gonna stash Tatar in GR. Nyquist and Tatar are both good enough to be on the roster, there just buried behind way too many forwards that are under contract. And Holland's not just gona start dumping people, and Babs isn't going to scratch people to put one of them in for more than a few games.

Stable is probably the one positive attribute most people would have accepted given his frame. Truth is, look at the rest of the D, it's probably more of a negative on them than anything else.

We both hope he will though. Cheer's to hoping he realizes we are in a transition.. and that transition needs Tatar and Nyquist.

I think Tatar is the spark for the bottom 6 tonight.
And Mrazek was a spark for our defenders ("Do not hang out the new goalie tonight guys... shape up and play safe" - Ok coach )

Everything is relative, so that definitely helps Ericsson's perception be higher than what it should be. But he has come a long way from what he used to be, nonetheless.
