By the way, does anyone know whether the reason that Ken Kal and Paul Woods do the road broadcasts from the LCA via monitor is due to Covid or due to budget?

Making a virtue of necessity?

But the RW radio broadcasts are dead to me anyway. I cannot listen to Paul Woods. I have not listened to more than 5 min of a RW radio broadcast since he went into the booth. Lucky for me by the time Bruce Martyn retired all the games were on TV.

Wings get a 5th for Jon Merrill. Likelihood of a 5th ever amounting to anything is low, but still not bad for a guy I forgot was even on the team

It's Ottawa's 5th so right after the 4th round top 4 picks...

I'm thinking Steve is going to use some of this draft capital to make some move-up trades...

merrill for a 5th and a nepotism player.

but it is ottawa's fifth so its just like a 4th.

i think we have 11 picks in the draft.

Leafs acquired Jackets captain Nick Foligno today. As a Leafs hater, I’m getting nervous. I am starting to see them as the Cup favourite.

Wings complete back to back sweep over Carolina, which has one of the NHL's best records.

Two assists for Rasmussen.

Wings have their first 3-game winning streak of the year. Solid 4-1 home win over Chicago.

guys, i think the wings arent going to finish last in the division, much less last in the league.

and honestly, id rather not win the lottery this year.  there doesnt seem to be a generational player, but rather there are a lot of really good guys in the top 7 or so.

Does Vrana look a little like Yzerman to anyone? (Not talking about his game... facial resemblance). I know he's behind a mask but... young Yzerman?

I watched the beginning of this game and the Wings looked so overmatched it seemed hopeless. They were doing a decent job not giving up great scoring chances (other than the 1st goal) but the play was still all in their end. I came back to it in the 3rd and it looked like two different teams.

the hawks arent very good either.  they may actually be worse than detroit but have gotten lucky a lot this year, especially with their goalies.

Tigers lose 7-0. Wings lose 4-0. Pistons have scored 77 points but nonetheless seem set to make Detroit 0-3 on the day.

I guess they all decided it was Draft Positioning Day...

PS: The Red Wings power play looked completely incompetent. Out of 6 PP's and 14 minutes they spent about 3 minutes in the offensive zone and 11 minutes chasing the puck in their own defensive zone. Atrocious. They couldn't set up jack ****.

Are they this devoid of talent? Or is it coaching?

I vote coaching and wanna see Blashill moved out. Is there not anyone better that Stevie-Y can target to get this team ready to win Stanley Cups...? I'm tired of the losing but moreso, this level of play and lack of game plan...

I see no reason to keep Blashill but I have felt that way for a few years now without any movement.

Fine, I get that even with the greatest coach of all time this team wouldn't make the playoffs with this roster. But surely there's a coach that can add value to one of the aspects. Player development? Team identity? Motivation and effort? Strategy? PR? 

What is Blashill good at? If nothing special in any category, then why not replace him? If not, if it's futile or a lost cause, sn't it basically saying that the players could pretty much just coach themselves or a random fan you pluck from the stands could coach them for a day?

I could see the argument if there was something Blashill was doing like mismanaging lines or playing time or he couldn't run a practice (which Yzerman would easily see), but in the absence of what is the point in bringing in a guy like a Bowman who might push their buttons harder. That still won't get them to where they win enough and it will start the clock on the kind of coach who is going to wear out his welcome in a few seasons - so I would think better not to do that until you have the players to win something.

With this crew whoever is coaching is just a placeholder. Maybe you move him just for fresh air, but I don't know as it will make much difference in the end.
