Good effort..from a team who doesn’t Believe it can win. There is Nothing wrong or bad about this game, we got beaten by a better team who smells confidence, and when you have a player like Ovi in the line-up the sky is the limit.

On our side eveyone played well enough..but not good enough to win, it was another close game but at 2-1..let’s say that i wasn’t expecting to see an equalizer.

OK the downer to this post…please Math teacher play Z with Larks at least ONE LITTLE SHIFT !!!

One more little note..Biega. Why is this guy in the line-up ? Would it be a nightmare to give his spot to Hicketts ? So at least one of our Young player in the system gets a candy ? Does anyone here believe Biega will get better by playing more ?..Maybe Hicketts will…maybe.

I would really like to see Bowey sent down and Hicketts brought up and let him play.  Keep Biega as a 7th D-man but agree with you that Hicketts should get a full run so we can really find out if he is going to be a NHL D-man or not.  I see him make some good plays, win some battles, then i see him make Ericsson style give aways and bad reads.  I think those can be worked out and limited the more he gets use to playing at the NHL level and pace.  I also agree with the talking heads in Detroit, the team could really use some of his energy and swagger.

Theres so much more dead weight on this team then in years past. Nielsen 1 pt in 25 gp. On pace for 3-4 pts for the season. Just blows my mind how bad he’s fallen off. And you have several guys who contribute absolutely nothing on the score sheet or on the ice.

Hard to watch… Here’s to hoping there’s a huge roster/coaching turnover this offseason
