A Win May Cure All

Paul here again for Bill...

Let's try this: frustration, no passion, lack of confidence, mental lapses and head shaking.

Have I missed anything?  Of course I could include some mistakes made from the front office but it does no good to complain, play with the hand dealt to you.

All I know a win will start to cure what ails the Wings right now.

Will it be tonight or does this continue until Tuesday when the Preds play at the Joe?

Let's play from the opening whistle to the final horn tonight and hope for the best.

It's a live blog b*#%@&s.

And let’s end the period with another penalty, shall we?  What FUN! 4 minutes too?

Yeah, starting the 3rd on a 3+ min PK.  Can’t think of anything better than that.

So if that guy was cut making it 4 minutes, how was he right back on the ice.  Thought you couldn’t play until the bleeding was stopped.

calquake - just frustrated.  And yet Ken said the Wings have 3 more points than they did after the same number of games last season.  Sure doesn’t feel like it.  If the Wings could win tonight, they’d be in second place in the Division.  Still hoping.  They (and we) really, really need a win tonight.

LGRW !!!!!

I remember last season starting out just like this one.  Doesn’t make it easier to stomach.

Sorry mister. smile

That is the mind-boggling part I’ll admit.  However there’s precious little time to get ship righted as they say.  L.G.R.W.

Last season when we were concerned until the final game that we might not make the playoffs??  Don’t need a repeat of that please.

Well, the way they’re playing right now, making the playoffs seems 50/50.

Those OT losses are really disguising the points they are getting.  Other than the tiebreakers, going 0-0-4 is the same as going 2-2-0 pointwise.  Sure does suck a lot more to watch, but the point total is hovering because of that.

By the way, I have to comment on Osgood’s earlier and completely ridiculous comment that Johan Franzen “always ends up with 30-40 goals per year.”  What a brutal and fantastic lie.  Franzen scored over 30 goals once in his career.  I really hope I misunderstood what Ozzie said.

The fact that the Wings are well in the playoff hunt with as crappy as they’ve been playing is encouraging…. or the East really sucks.

I’m afraid to look at the standings to see where the Wings would be if they were still in the West.  *shivers*

Some one in an earlier thread that the Wings would be in 10th in the West.  Aboot where they were last year.

I thought everyone was saying the Wings would be better off in the East….. They are 3rd in Atlantic Division; 13th in NHL League

There is that small matter of winning some games that was understood at the time.

Let’s see, a team that’s below average offensively, below average defensively with somewhat average to below average goaltending—13th in the NHL seems about right to me.

Hockey-wise, nothing that a three game winning streak won’t cure.
