So which is it - they're inconsistent, or consistently biased against us?
You only get to pick one.
Not sure which it is for us, but I do know the referees have been consistently biased TOWARDS Detroit for years. Seriously, I don't know how they get away with so much crap. At least Kronwall hasn't pulled one of his dirty hits again.
I actually really like these uniforms, I wouldn't mind them long-term if they toned down those barberpole arms.
Yup. It's Edler and (surprisingly) Hamhuis that need to find consistency.
From the 10 game mark or so on Garrison and Tanev have been our most dependable D men. Bieksa has been the "best" when he's on, but he's inconsistent. Hamhuis has been in and out all year, and Edler has been bad more than he's been good.
Reffing is beyond frustrating. Putz MacCauley wants to show everyone he's the MAN
Team is really fragmented and disjointed. Kind of goes that way when you don't have any centers other than Henrik.
This is so true and you can see it. It's shocking to see Higgins having to take defensive zone draws on the PK. He's doing an admirable job, but Gillis absolutely needs to find a center. Even when Kesler is healthy, we need one more top 9 center on this team badly.
Our bottom 6 is in shambles because of the injuries, as well. It'd be a lot easier to get by if players didn't have to play positions they're not used to, especially with wingers having to play center.
If they open up the game against the Wings they will get run out of the rink. This type of hockey is higher percentage, boring or not.
It's all for not though if they don't get any depth scoring. Even as a fluke shot. They need at least one goal from the depth ranks, or it's good night.
I'm not saying i disagree, but who knows. I'd like to see the team go balls to the wall and just see what happens. I mean, we've got some pretty speedy players and Detroit isn't the high flying team they used to be.
