Can we stop getting dominated, please? These guys played last night. Scoring chances have got to be in the vicinity of 10-0.
Exactly! Why can we not seem to be much more healthier and have fresh legs on the ice when the other team has already played last night! Surely that is an advantage, but we can't seem to gain anything on the opposition.
It happened against Toronto. I don't feel good about this.
Those Devils sure are whacking and hacking and holding away out there, though.
The Wings have done their fair share of holding.
We are brutal along the boards. And Babs should try Helm on a line with Datsyuk or Zetterberg. It wouldnt be the first time we played a bottom 6 player on a top line. Draper - Datsyuk - Shanahan was plenty good.
I like the Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Cleary line. Datsyuk just looks uncomfortable out there and I don't think it has much to do with who is linemates are. I don't think Dats would have it going regardless of who is lining up with him.
We just can't hold onto the puck anymore. As soon as we cross their blue line it's only a matter of seconds before it's turned over - usually along the boards or someone trying to take on 3 defenders by himself or a bad pass.
I secretly hope Holland gets a ton of offers he can't refuse for Osgood at the deadline. There have to be a few teams that like the thought of Osgood at 1.4M going into the playoffs. Chicago? Philly? Washington?
Its not so much about getting him off the roster as it is getting an asset or two for him while we still can. Its not like we wouldn't be able to find an adequate regular season replacement for this kind of performance.
After the first period, I said this to my dad. "Looks like a ****ing Red Wings game." I can't believe I said that. I'm only 22 guys, I don't know how to handle this ****. Worst I've ever seen them. Maybe we can turn it around. And you know what, If we have a strong 3rd peroid, I'll be happy because we've been brutal in the 3rd(not very Red Wing like).
