Tough Times Ahead

Yeah, we're back with another game to play tonight against a solid Islanders team. What can I say? It's tough being a Detroit Red Wings fan right now. It doesn't look to get any better in the near future with some tough times ahead. Even mediocrity would be a huge improvement. Something's gotta give....

It's a Live Blog!

The pregame show is more entertaining than the game most nights the way the Wings are going.

It’s a nice gig. They do provide some much needed comic relief too.

Hi fellow stubborn die-hards.
Thanks for the intro Kate.

Tough days, weeks, and months ahead.

On pace for 48 points this season.  If recent history holds, this will be their best period tonight!  And now they trail !

Fun Times !

When Trotz was hired by the Caps I told my son in law, a Caps fan, that they would now probably win a Stanley Cup.  It only took the Isles 3 days to hire Trotz after he resigned from the Caps right after the Cup.

He’s good at teaching structure, it seems, goals and wins will follow.

I did hear BurnedMyWay thump his stick on the ice 7 times before the penalty expired, so they should have known dude was coming out of the box.

Yup Kate. Ya don’t get a minus 29 playing right. He needs a trip to the popcorn room for a few games.

Hi all,

It looks like Blashell is not very good at the Fox Trotz!  grin  maybe Blashell needs to join Arthur Murray Dance School!

Have to agree. Doon’t want to because I like AA but he has been silent most of the season.

As down on AA as the 19 are. I really hope Stevie resists the urge to trade him. Unless the return is unbelievable, you never want to deal from a position of weakness like the wings are currently in. Teams will be circling like vultures. Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don’t make. This season was over a month ago. Trading guys now, unless unloading bad contracts (Abby, Nielsen..etc) I think you just tough it out..

I think AA sure has upside, or back up from downside, but every player remaining will benefit when the entire roster is better.  (I didn’t say “if” it got better, b/c it just has to, doesn’t it?)

Look Mickey, every goal against is not because of an unlucky bounce or deflection, we’re getting blown out in these games.

Unless the return is awesome I agree. Trading for a defenseman isn’t going to help much.

Only team without a 3+ goal win (tough when you barely score 2 per game) and lead the league by a wide margin in 3+ goal losses, 13.

Larkin got right into the tight area and finally got a good bounce to his stick.
