dekyser waived.

meh.

Losing who he is now may be meh, but it's still a blow that he has not been able to come back. A healthy DDK would have been a plus.

what's wrong with vancouver?  werent they supposed to be a team on the rise?

They've given up a lot of goals. They let goalie Markstrom go in the off-season and that's part of it but the problems run deeper than that. Recall they were only a bubble playoff team last year before going on a bit of a run in the weird summer post-season.

5 years ago it sure looked like one or two of DeKeyser, Mrazek, Tatar, Nyquist, AA would be foundational pieces.  Not to mention still some hope then for Ouelett, Sheahan, Pulkkinen, Jurco. All 25 or under back then except 26 y.o. Nyquist   So how much closer are the Wings now, really, then they were then? Not much, IMO.

so sad.

passing on chychrun to take cholowski doesnt look so hot now either.  yeah yeah yeah hronek, but they could have drafted hronek without the trade and chychrun is better than hronek.

and i have a feeling cholowski will never be a red wing.

He seems pretty done, seems like he still isn't moving well from his injury and it just completely kills whatever game he has left.

Well... he's started out with the Red Wings the past two years so I think you're off in more ways than one...

I don't mind the tough love he's receiving right now... I haven't given up yet that he'll turn into a productive two-way NHL defenseman (what the current tough love is all about)...

But yeah, Chychrun looks like a damn fine player right now that Hronek & Cholowski put together don't add up to...

The end of Holland's tenure(including the drafts) were disastrous...I see Steve building around the edges, getting premium talent at the top of the draft, and keeping flexiblility if a star ever shakes loose.

They need some lottery luck...and if they change the odds back to normal we might be in business.

Oh, they'll change it back, just about the time the Wings are challenging for  Divisional leads again.

Not that I still wouldn't love to have Lafreniere, but he sure is off to a rough start with the Rangers. 13 GP 1G 0A 1Pt

Wings play another competitive game, 2-2 against Chicago after regulation.

Leafs just blew a 5-1 lead to Ottawa at home to lose 6-5 in OT, lol.

Wings lose in OT. The Wings only real chance was a brief 3 on 1 but Zadina couldn't handle the return pass from Larkin.

******* zadina.  right on his ******** stick and he ****s it up.

i know he's young.  i know its probably not the best time to talk about him since he blew it tonight, but he has to be seen as a disappointment so far.

He looked very timid on that play.

Lol Zadina has been one of our best forwards when on the ice y'all are hilarious.  Also please go watch Quinn Hughes play defense sometime.  He gets even more sheltered minutes than Chychrun which is saying a lot.

The puck jumps over Zadina's stick on a 3 on 1 and he's the problem (after stealing the puck in the d zone, entering the offensive zone, and setting up a pass and calling back for the give and go which is apparently timid?).... never mind Dylan Larkin joining Hronek in the offensive zone corner to cover one player giving up the odd man rush for the goal the other way....

well, i was being harsh on zadina cause i was mad they lost to the flipping blackhawks in a game they dominated for large stretches.

i would also like our sniper to score more goals.

when zadina has been healthy, he's been very active and that's nice to see.

for his draft class, zadina currently ranks 9th in point shares, behind only 4 huys drafted behind him: hughes, boqvist, farabee, and dobson.

2/3 of his draft class has yet to even make it to the NHL.

one last thing, i dvrd the game and went back to watch the last play.  it wasnt a bad bounce, it was a pass right on the black to zadina.  he took his eye off the puck and misplayed it.

For a team being shut out, the Wings are actually creating quite a few chances here in this 3rd period. Trailing 1-0 to Chicago with under 3 to go though.

I think the Wings have played a bit better the past 5 games. Maybe just weaker competition. Or that I have lowered expectations. Anyways, 2-0 loss tonight to the Hawks.

the 1st Chicago goal was terrible. The are keeping the score closer but they still look like they play at roughly 3/4 the speed of their opponents. You have no hope in this NHL if you never get there first. And Zadina's stick does needs to be better. They set up him up half a dozen times on the early PPs and I think he only got off one shot on the net. It's pointless for him to get open in the circle if he can't handle passes more reliably.

With Bertuzzi out the Wings don't have a player who you immediately notice is out there based on his impact on the flow of the game,  and that includes Larkin. Tyler is not much a scorer but he at least makes his presence felt consistently.
