I watched some of the Blackhawks yesterday and they may be doing an even better tank job than the Wings

in fairness to them, half their team is injured.

but they are still really bad.  they might be worse than us.

Looks like they have zero cap space with the players they have on IR/LTIR so I don't think they'll get much better this season at least.  Seabrook being injured certainly helps them, he only has 4 years left on that deal at just under $7million a year!  But anyone who plays in front of thei goalie tandem probably doesn't have much of a chance.

they have nothing on defense but an aging duncan keith, the youngsters arent there yet.  debrincat is good, toewes is still decent, and kane can still score like crazy when he wants to.

stan junior basically acknowledged this is a rebuilding year, and they just lost dach for the foreseeable future.

but its chicago, the league will make sure they get rewarded in the lottery again.  :(

Too much solo play in the offensive zone. That last sequence was about the 1st time they did a little passing. Both D's  clearing their zone before much sustained pressure.

Have we scored yet?

Need more than 11 shots 2 minutes into the third period, baby steps...

as the game goes on we are seeing more sequences where the defense is losing it but they haven't given up another goal yet.  Offense is just playing too slow, passing is either too late or off the mark.

2-0 blowout outshot almost 4X. It is what is but I need to see a pulse from a young player not named Larkin, Mantha, or Bertuzzi.

Insane how bad Holland's last few drafts were...oh well.

I know the rosters have been bad but at what point do we admit that Blashill isn't adding anything either.  Same boring/safe hockey that is just a slow death because they don't have the talent to outlast anyone.  Oh well at least hockey is back.

they played decently for 55 minutes. The last penalty by Nemeth was the killer.

I still hate how tight they play the box on the PK. Between that and lack of speed to close they just can't get a puck back short handed. Even strength D was better. Shot totals looked horrible but the number they gave up wasn't the problem so much - Carolina took a lot of shots but a lot of them were low percentage. But the Wings puck handling on offense was horrible. They couldn't make an outlet pass and they couldn't connect on passes if they did get out of their own zone. They were also terrible on faceoffs. They basically looked like they never got up to playing at NHL speed other than a short stretch in the 2nd period.

Lots of work to do.

Does it make much difference if they play out of control and lose 5-2? One game doesn't mean anything but the even strength D did look sounder - they just couldn't convert it into any effective transition offense.

Man, the late Holland drafts are disastrous:

https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/teams/dr00005492.html

2016-  Svechnikov #19 overall

2017- Cholowski #20 overall

2018- Rasmussen # 9 overall

2019- Zadina #6 overall

2020- Seider #6 overall

No significant contributions yet from any of the five 2016-2020 1st round draft picks is a killer. Has to be one of the weakest outputs of any NHL team. Compare that to Vancouver for example who have picked off Elias Peterssen (#5) in 2018 and Quinn Hughes (#7) in 2019 and just outside that period is Brock Boeser at #23 overall in 2015.

I actually thought they looked better than last year.  Especially on defense.  The quality scoring chances were close to even for most of the game even though Carolina outshot them something fierce.  Greiss played well, I thought.

But there wasn't really anyone who can score other than the first line, and they didn't do much tonight.  Other than that....oy.

And why is Nielsen even seeing the ice?  Are Svech or Rasmussen that bad?
