I think it's a big shirt and a windy day. I don't think he's been that fat since they drafted him.

Howie continues to play well but the Oilers look lifeless. That team needs a major shakeup.

I'd trade one of their "big four" for a young potential-star defenseman or just a few younger depth players. The Oil have no balance at all. Its just a fee small skilled forwards and a bunch of scrubs.

1. Emmerton - every day he's shufflin'
2. Jimmah - wasn't tested much
3. Miller - a couple awesome setups for Emmerton and Kindl

HM: Tatar

I really dig that Andersson line. They were doing work tonight.

Yeah, they are the polar opposite of the Pens and Hawks.

Emmerton was the man during the second period. Datsyuk was a visible presence despite his linemates. He nearly had an assist when Q rang a shot off the iron. I can't complain about Pavs getting recognized, tonight was one of those nights where he was a presence and when you consider his linemates and the level of competition you can appreciate his game.

And some of you guys want to kill that line. Sometimes I wonder if Coach Babcock is just subscribing to Okam's Razor. What's the point with screwing up a line that's already working to make another line work? That's a net gain of 0. As much as I want to see Datsyuk pick it up, tearing apart another to do it seems... Pointless... Now, if they want to recall Nyquist, that's another story.

I agree, but it's too bad they can't play like that against better teams. I think they're capable of it, obviously.

Kindl
Emmerton
Smith

I gotta say, our D is looking sexy.

I would've given a star to Howie, he deserves praise obviously, however I didn't feel like he was visible. The Oilers didn't test him enough for me to say, "Wow, Howie! Nice!" Still, Howie is playing awesome!

I don't care what you guys say, the Datsyuk line was really effective tonight. They cycled the puck and spent whole shifts in the Oiler's end. Gator especially had some jump.

The kids looked good tonight too. Andersson is becoming pretty noticeable out there for the things he's been doing - I'm really impressed with how responsible he is defensively.

Franzen looked dangerous. I think Zetterberg is going to finally get the lead out. He looked pissed off towards the end and looked like he found his beast gear.

Actually was really impressed with the LA game before they rightfully lost their minds on some of what happened in the third period.

Quincey and Smith led the team in icetime, that is a very good thing with 3 games in 4 nights.

Quincey - 22:43 (All even strength)
Smith - 22:26
Kronwall - 22:17
Ericsson - 20:13
Kindl - 16:37
Lashoff - 14:42

It pains me I missed this game based on the comments. I may have to re-watch it at like double speed. Definitely a personal highlight of the night noticing that Abdelkader got the EN.

Cleary and Sammy are vets, perhaps a deal can be arranged.

Woo hoo 2 in a row! Ok weaker teams but when we do win this season it is in the same way- grinding forcheck w/ lots of pressure. Rolling 4 lines consistently. Short shifts. The forwards helping the D down low and every player battling extremely hard to keep the puck out of the net. And the D being active as an option to score but not trying to do too much.

Is it correct to say we're playing more of NA style of hockey? Dump and chase, simpler, more quick plays to get off shots. Our style could be why Tootoo, Tatar, and Emmerton are making such an impact, it suits them perfectly. It reminds me of Canadian Junior hockey, and trust me I mean that in a good way. It seems like other teams have caught up to our skill so the Wings are getting back to their roots: scrambling, battling, out hustling our opponents. The way we're going to get wins is to play desperate hockey, which I don't mind at all. I think it's a great story- we were so disheveled to start the season but through hard work we are finding a way to compete.

God forbid I praise Babcock based on some of the posters here, but I think he's done a really good job getting them to play in a way that doesn't seem to be the "traditional" Red Wings way. That's fine by me. I don't care what type of game they play as long as they keep winning, and they've just put themselves in a good position tonight (and with some lucky losses the last couple of nights) to maybe give themselves some breathing room assuming, you know, we can actually BEAT Columbus for once instead of killing their players.

Smith is deserving of a star but Kindl got a goal so gave it to him. Smith has been our best defenseman these past two games, just isn't getting any luck offensively. Kronwall can either score a lot of points and suck defensively or not score and play great defense.
Kronwall needs about 5-10 games to put it together

Anybody else think that Quincey has played really well over the past couple of games? I think now that he's settled down into that shutdown dman role he's turned his game around.

I also don't think we are going to see White in a Wings uniform again. Unless the injury bug hits before CC is back I think he'll be moved the day or day after CC is back. Especially with the improved play of the younglings on D he's expendable now.
It sucks for White. I think they'll try to give hm a chance. But he has to try hard in practices.

Maybe, but it was a very easy opponent.

Not trying to sound like a downer because we played solid and limited their chances, but from an entertainment perspective don't bother. Very boring and uneventful game to be honest.

Maybe 10 good scoring chances in all, with us having 9 of them.
