Recommended Posts

Feels like the time of year when the Wings should be winding down the season in a few weeks, but in fact not even halfway though yet. 
 

Wings in Carolina tonight.

Still on schedule for top-3 record for draft purposes...

Looks like it's a battle royale between Ottawa, Detroit and Buffalo. 
 

Anaheim 22 points from 26 games

Ottawa 19 points from 28 games

Detroit 18 points from 27 games

Buffalo 16 points from 24 games

 

The Canucks have gone on a bit of a streak to separate themselves from the bottom:

The Wings have now played 1/2 of this season, or 1/3 of a normal 82-game season and what a depressing top 12 scorers list is this.

How many of these players will even be on the Wings' next playoff team?

I'd say three of Larkin, Hronek and Zadina but maybe one of, say, Mantha, Bertuzzi, other.

mantha has been the biggest disappointment, but its not like larkin is ripping things up offensively either.

they obviously miss bertuzzi's presence in front of the net.

Not only at the net but Tyler generates take-aways.

What the ****? Not the score I was expecting when I just walked in and looked at my screen.  Wings lead the defending Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 midway through the 2nd.

I didn't see the first half of the game so not sure how the Wings scored 5 goals despite still only having 22 shots on goal late in this game. Maybe the Wings were playing great, maybe Tampa had goaltending issues. But in the 3rd period the Wings seem very comfortable with this 3-goal lead not under threat. 4 minutes to go.

Seconds later the Bolts make it 5-3. Goalie out, 3 minutes to go now.

Zadina needs to shoot the puck! Overthinking it led to a 3 on 1 shorthanded break for Carolina the other way.

0-0 early in the 2nd at LCA.

The Canes have one of the best records in the NHL and the Wings are playing them even through two periods. But a shorthanded goal has Carolina up 1-0.

Frustrating as Mantha can be, it seems like he is the most talented guy on the Wings. That's not saying much. But it even includes Larkin, IMO.

I hope Drown didn’t drown.  A month since last post. May need to send out a missing persons for him and the Wings power play at the same time. Although two PPG tonight thanks to Erne.

Mickey wants more than 700 fans in attendance. I agree. At least 3000 immediately should be manageable.
