It was amusing that the same Ducks and Sharks fans who revile the Wings so much have been vociferously whining about the Wings moving east.

Have you seen their rink? They need the ticket sales.

I like Brunner being back in, I didn't even notice Tootoo and I thought he didn't pick a very good time to fight.

I know Howard needs to rest but we're going to be playing a very hungry Phoenix team that needs a win. I'd be okay with an OT or SO loss tomorrow night. That and The Monster hasn't really given me much confidence in his abilities this year.

I don't trust the backup. Also I'm happy we won but playing the entire 3rd on defence was just bas

I haven't been impressed with Gustavsson to date but he needs to play, particularly on back to back situations. He needs to rise to the occasion tomorrow if he's going to prove he's an NHL caliber back-up.

Osgood was a cheap goalie. - Ya us!


Yes when teams have players (stars) below 25, things work out better. But if you think we win a cup without howard, hoping Mrazek just gets as good as howard is a dumb move.
No doubt, all those teams won with good goalies that were getting paid less than they normally get in a couple years.

Buuuut. The point is that you cannot over spend on a goalie. You need that money for skaters. You need to lock up a couple solid dmen, be strong down the center, fill out the squad with good depth. If you spend 5M+ on a goalie, it's really hard to do that. You can try to spend more on a goalie and try to get lucky on a cheaper player getting hot, but that doesn't seem to work out as well.

Kindl just continues to impress.

Eaves isn't doing much there.

Howie with another solid performance.

I think he had one good hit. But I thought the timing for the fight was terrible.
As for Gustavsson, he was very shakey last game. He has to settle down.

I do not know why they complain/whine so much about the call. Getzlaf did trip Filppula. And the tripping call on Cleary was very bad and weak.

We finally have a winning record on the road 7-6-2.

The reason for this is:
Better/solid goaltending
Much better special units (I think we have scored a PP goal in last 6-7 games)
All 4 lines chipping in.

I think since Franzen came back, both Cleary and Abby have been better, much better.
I thought Nyquist had a very good game.

Splitting Abby and Cleary has been a big catalyst. Having 2 low skill guys on the same line was just producing nothing.

I noticed our 2nd power play unit of Filppula, Nyquist, Cleary, Smith, and Kindl has been just as good as our main one. I was skeptical because Gus and Filppula both shy away from shooting, but dang they're all meshing well. Smith and Kindl especially.

By the way even if someone is making attacks at you or other redwings fans don't tell them on HF Boards not to be a crybaby. I got a HF Boards infraction for doing just that. I don't think I deserved that given my comment was pretty tame compared to their racy comments, but that's the moderators decision I guess. Don't defend yourself or fellow fans on HF Boards its not worth it!!

It definitely looked better than the pile of hot garbage it was at the beginning of the season, but that isn't saying much. They still need better entries into the zone and some more movement when they get set up. Gus is looking more confident with the puck once they're set up which is good, and Kindl and Smith keep improving which is great to see.

I don't get this team...

Win back to back games against a top4 team in the league.... can't win against columbus and calgary if their life depended on it...

Or should we all blame salary cap, every game is a coin-flip 50/50?

That just made beating them even better, and was amusing to see them both lose it like that.

Any way you can link me to the gif so I can save it?

Ian White needs to get off the PP. Kindl and Smith both skate and move the puck great. Kronwall needs someone to cycle with, and it ain't White.

Copy and paste it. It should copy as a photobucket link just like a picture.
