Yeah they can't lose Lidstrom and not take a step backwards even with all the great players they still have but Detroit is the blue print pro teams follow in how to develop your players and keep your team elite for many years. Even pro teams in other sports study how Detroit operates from the main office to the ice to the minors. They are the modern playbook for efficiency.

The Hawks have modeled themselves after Detroit. New Jersey, New York (both teams), Boston to name a few, they all follow the Wings structure.

I could take that! But that game in St. Louis was a freaking blast. It's great to go into a big rival building and rip them apart like we did. Blues fans had some choice words and actions for us on our way out haha. Great weekend for the Wings. Kinda ground out these last 2 wins.

Still need to do that, go to Chicago or one of the close rivals. Seems it would be a blast.
They had a good weekend and starting to look like themselves.

Well the good Wings showed up for the 1st period last night not sure where they were for the remainder of the game. Knew it would be different with Bert and Franzen out.

Yes, the Blackhawks just keep rolling, but will they crash and burn soon?

I really thought the wings were gonna do it yesterday and i think we were the closest. We were the better team late, when it mattered but Crawford stood on his head. So did Howie when the Hawks were running the game. I dont know what wrong with Datsyuk in shootouts this season.

Playoff hockey will tell. How many times have we seen super hot clubs get slammed in the playoffs? A bunch.

I saw the Hawks win 11 straight games in the playoffs in '92 only to be swept by the Pens in the finals. The Wings in 95 had a tremendous regular season only to lose the cup to New Jersey.

The streak is nice but they keep flirting with disaster with 1 goal games late in the third. In the playoffs that's like a bad case of Tourettes Syndrome.

He's injured. Not enough to pull him out of the lineup but enough to damage his game right now.

that makes sense, but injured enough to affect shootouts and not affect going coast to coast and scoring on the preds? It's odd, but totally plausible.

Yup it all depends how he was feeling at the time. I always hated intermission between periods when I played goal because that's when your body winds down and you start to feel the pain. When everyone's playing and the lines are rolling your mind is occupied and you're on the move every few minutes so you can forget you're hurt and for goalies we go back to our weird ways.

Those few minutes before the shootout Datsyuk has nothing to do but stand still and feel every lingering injury plus what he took for 3 periods then he has to charge the net. Hockey, even a little rat hockey game at the local rink, will kick your ass. I can only imagine the beating those guys take in the NHL.

Yeah Rinne is usually better. Off night for him. I really hope the Wings can show everyone what's up these next 2 nights. We really need the points and we just need consistency. 2 strong periods against Calgary then a complete meltdown in the 3rd ain't right.

I'm hoping the Wings will make it into the playoffs so I can watch them when I get home in May.

I really think we will make the playoffs. Especially if they play the way they did against Vancouver and Anaheim recently. Wings need Helm and Bert back to really help our 3rd line, not like they're bad, but Helm is amazing everywhere on the ice.

Side note: RedWingsZL1, I see you're from Ft. Wayne. You keep up with the Komets at all?

Huge win by the Habs over the Bruins last night! Always good hockey between those two teams. How will the east deal with Iginla on Pittsburgh? Are they going to run away with the cup or what

I can help but be pissed but laughing all t the same time. Iginlia chose the pens over Boston for the chance to play with Sid and Malkin.
I'm not laughing because Crosby lost some chiclets or because he's a big whining diver and might have deserved it. I'm laughing because half the reason iginla "chose Pittsburgh" got smashed in the face by a puck..


The bruins are a huge passion of mine and I almost feel like karma has shown itself!

How's that rubber taste Crosby?

By the by: finally got to see that in HD and slow motion. You can see the first few teeth just fly out like chewing gum.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer douchebag.

I actually like Malkin.

Sorry he beat you guys in OT at the olympics but I don't think you need to be glad that he got a puck in the face. I'm a habs fan but I can still respect a good hockey player.

I think he'll help. They need the scoring but need more.
