Happy we would be in the playoffs, angry about what that would likely mean longterm.

The entire team - players and coaches alike - better bring the cheese for 60 minutes. I'm tired of the excuses and justifications behind bad decisions and lack of offense.

5-2 Wings

Miller, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Mule, Kindl

I'd be pissed, but that's because my expectation is that it is a fluke. He's at the age now where he's not going to be getting better. We've seen his peak. Plus, he's being misused. If he's playing at all it should not be in the top6 with Datsyuk and on the PP and in OT.

On top of that, he's holding a spot that should be going to up and coming talent.

Now, if he starts playing like his career peak and keeps that up for the entire time he's with the Wings, I won't complain at all. I just think that's not going to happen.

Noticed that myself and had to laugh.

I've never been good at math either, but 3+1+1 = 5 in most places.

Just remember the Defense is the problem with this team, not the explosive offense and dynamic PP

Between Babcock comments and Holland talking about getting injured players back being like a couple deadline deals I have never been more encouraged by the Red Wings brain trust.

Going out on a realshaky (as I'm sure Babs would say) limb here and saying that D's linemates may be having at least a LITTLE effect on his ability to score lately at ES.

I do think that Z hasn't play well lately, and when he's off his game his line is invisible on the ice. And I'll even agree that every team hits stretches in a season where goals are hard to come by, but at least try to throw in a few coaching adjustments here and there to address the problem.

Typically when a team isn't scoring, the coach is changing the lines to find a spark somewhere and see if a new combination could get hot... seems rather passive to chalk it up to "oh well guys, you know how the game of hockey is- everyone hits a dry spell during the season. So we won't make ANY significant line changes to get us going, but instead keep doing exactly what isn't scoring at the moment. Sounds good, right? Now get out there, play realgood, be hard on the puck, and keep competing!!"

Wings win 5-1

Smith on the PP, Brunner on the PP, Z gets two, and Tats gets one playing with Pavel, who gets like 4 assists.

I think this is a game for Z.

I have to agree with Babcock on Andersson. He does seem to have good sense to be in the right place and rarely makes mistakes

I kind of picture Babcock as a really stubborn guy. The more his decisions get questioned the harder he digs in. I agree with several posters here that one or the other, Cleary or Abby has to change. It's been pretty obvious. Makes me wonder what he sees in practice that he stays with this line, it ain't producing on game day

I join the rest of posters that we have to win.
I dream of seeing Tatar with Datsyuk just for a shift or 2.
