You're talking about games where the other team's goaltending went shooter tutor suddenly. I can't in good conscience say that the Wings would have won 2 out of 3 of those games had the opposing goalie played like he even belonged in the NHL at all. I'm not being negative either, I'm being objective and judging purely off of what I see on the ice. I hope the Wings win tonight but I don't expect them to if the Ducks' goaltending is respectable.

Are you not familiar with Roberto Luongo? That's who the Canucks are, dude.

Wow, I'm pretty shocked.

Damien Brunner a healthy scratch for #RedWings today against Ducks. Jordin Tootoo returns to lineup. Brunner hasn't scored last 12 games.

It's probably just because it's the ducks and they got their ***** kicked. Brunner wouldnt be able to defend himself

Yeah, Drew Miller is a much better line mate for Zetterberg than Brunner.......

Not sure I like Brunner being scratched. I can see Tootoo being in, but I thought either Miller or Eaves would have sat instead. Hopefully Babcock won't make a habit out of having Brunner out of the lineup. Not scoring a goal in 12 games isn't a good enough reason to sit him, IMO. If that was the reasoning behind sitting him, then a few other guys should have been scratched from games already.

Abdelkader went over 20 and was actually promoted.

Babcock the size queen strikes again

Very happy to see Brunner scratched, he's a negative value whenever he's on the ice right now. Guy makes some of the dumbest plays I've ever seen. This isn't pond hockey.

For an undrafted first year player, he's done pretty well. Just because he isn't scoring like he was, doesn't mean you sit him out a game. The only way he's going to keep learning and improving his game is by playing. I'd love to know why Babcock decided to scratch him for this game.

brunner brings nothing to the table except offense. and he hasn't brought any offense to the table in 12 games.

Cleary doesn't even bring offense to the table, so why hasn't he been the one to sit out any games yet?

Yeah, he's been a liability these last couple of weeks. If he played defense or was smarter with the puck, he'd be playing.

He's a poor man's Ovechkin.

Glad to see Brunner scratched... for his sake. He's squeezing the stick and overthinking everything. He's just spinning his wheels, and though it's good to see him trying hard, the rubber just isn't hitting the road. I think a little rest is due. He's not only never had a year of hockey like this... this is a condensed and particularly difficult NHL schedule. We'll all be better for it.

About Wings fans... a lot of Michiganders migrated out west and to the southwest. It's not white flight; that's a phenomenon of moving to the suburbs after Great Migration of African Americans to the north. I think this is more about people from Michigan retiring to dry/hot areas for the sake of their joints and raising their kids as Wings fans. Or people leaving the hurting economy. I moved to pursue a career I couldn't do in Detroit and was in LA for 12 years. Kings fans would try to call me a fair weather fan, but I knew more about their team than they did (not all of them of course, just the jerks who would try to call me a fair weather fan). For the record I became a Wings fan in 83... when they were still bad. And I heard the new kid they drafted was gonna be pretty good...

Okay enough nostalgic rant/tangent. I think the Wings lose in a shootout 3-2. But put on a good showing and get a point.

Brunner is a liability if he isn't scoring. He has negative on ice value when he isn't putting the puck in the net. I have no problem with this move.

The problem I have is that this isn't consistent treatment throughout the lineup. There needs to be accountability across the boards. No favoritism, no exceptions.

Not all whites in white flight remained in Michigan though, majority went to all white suburbs but some even'fled' the state.
