Show Some Heart

I'm not going to bring up the Larkin dilemma. No reason to. The problem facing the Wings is their inability to step up and play at a competitive level regardless of who's in the lineup. We all know this is not the most talented group, but, they do have a few decent players that should be doing more, obviously, but after all is said and done, the players don't draw up the game plan.

The season began with a loss to Tampa Bay, but, it was an exciting game to watch nonetheless. Most games that followed, even when the Wings lost, were exciting. Fans could still say the effort was there, the guys played hard. That has come to a halt over the last five games. They've lost something, and it's more than just being without one of your top guys.

Good teams overcome, or, try to compensate when missing good players. It's a part of the game. It's planned for. This has to turn around, quickly. A win would help, but for now Wings fans just need to see some effort, some drive, some emotion. This team needs to show some heart.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
