This is what I have feared. Now bear with me here, I am 5 beers deep and am at Harpers( not the best choice I've made today), but without Lidstrom taking a big chunk of time at the blue line I saw this coming. Not to say that one game tarnishes Howard's career, but the guy couldn't stop a thing tonight and was 0/3 on breakaway goals. I knew he was no Allstar last year but all I heard was how good he was.
Howard sucks put in Gustavo need help at blue line.
only thing more shit than the Wings PP team is their PP kill team
I know the blues are good and I know that one game is never an indication of how good a team is, especially in hockey. This very well could be just one of those nights but on this night, we don't look like an NHL team. Do we even have 10 shots 50 minutes into the game?
Twelve. Including 3 on 4 PP's.
Shoot me. Just fuckin' shoot me.
Thank you, Denicos.
make that 4 on 5
This could be a long short season...
The moment is eternal
Maybe we'll just score next game.
We gone. 0-48.
And murph's glasses are a disgrace.
This will be the season of "WOW, Nick really was that good" if their defense doesn't play 1000 times better than they did tonight.

As well as Andersson & Sheahan. There is no way the corpse of Samuelsson, Bertuzzi, Tootoo, and/or Cleary (You could add a few more names possibly) are better off getting the ice than those 4 Griffins.
No different than the last few years, the team is old and slow and the result is Howard in a shooting gallery.
The only blame is on Holland for not bring along more young talent while the core aged and then grossly overpaying for marginal talent(Quincey) in attempt to make it looks like he did something
Da faq did I just watch?
Babcock is a good coach. I will wait and see if he can get his team playing better as the season goes along.
I don't care how good of a coach we got. We got one of the worst defenses in the league. We have 3 serviceable defensemen and the rest are f#%@ing practice cones.
Holland's failure in the off season is going to cost us our playoff streak. Makes me want to throw up. This is not Red Wings hockey.
Holland was damn close to landing Suter and Parise. They signed with Minny for a worse contract than Detroit only because they wanted to play in the state of Minnesota. So now Detroit is in a pickle for this season, but they have cap space to make a splash at the trade deadline as long as they are in the hunt for the playoffs.
But, but , but, we will probably beat them at the Joe. Will you play with my wiener then?
Holland attempted to get players in the offseason because of the cap space. They decided to go to Minnesota.
Kyle Quincey looks like Demond Williams with Ice Skates on. Has no idea how to defend a player and gets burned
That certainly wasn't encouraging. Let's see if Babs can get these guys to at least not run around in their own end like they did tonight. Could easily have been 10-0.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Rockford(Blackhawks AHL team) and Grand Rapids combined for 230 penalty minutes tonight, was some video on YouTube, but since taken down, anyone have a working link or see what happened?
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
The Pistons look better than the Red Wings
+1 for the Demond Williams reference.
I kept holding my breath over the last few years, watching Nick walk the line on PP or even full strength, thinking how badly we were going to miss him when he left. I thought the same about Yzerman, but I was wrong: Lidstrom was the key.
And yep, we miss him. We miss the fuck out of him. *Sigh*
