That injury doesn't look good.
The Maple Laughs are really overrated
Hope DBoss is okay, that injury looked nasty.
Mantha had a really, really good game today even though he didn’t score. Made several good plays on the backcheck.
I think he had one against the islanders a few years ago too.
Nyquist is playing with a ton of confidence right now.
Worried about Larkin. It’s going to be tough to watch this team if he’s out. Zero center depth.
Team ain't worth watching without Larkin but we're gonna tank so hard it will be good
Sucks about Larkin. Hope it's not serious.
That said WOOOOO!!! Winning against the Leafs at home and shutting up those obnoxious Leafs fans from Canada never, and I mean never gets old
Larkin > Matthews
I thought so too. He’s really rounding out his game. It seems to be coming together for him.
Now if we just had a solid center for him to play with.
Really disappointed about Larkin. Rather him play then see the team really lose without him.
Have to hope that comes next season, either by signing a guy like Duchene, drafting someone with our first, or Veleno crushing it in camp and making the team.
He reminded me of Blake Wheeler tonight, looking to make plays for everyone on the ice with him. He’s doing a good job of driving play with pretty weak linemates.
Big tank game tomorrow against Ottawa, possibly without Larkin
The only mega free agent they need to go after is Panarin. Pass on everyone else.
Tonight, yes. Overall, let's not get carried away. I think the gap may be closer than some general hockey fans think it is based on the Wings being a terrible team, but Larkin is not better than Matthews. That said, and I've said it all year long now, Dylan Larkin is in the conversation for the most underrated player in the NHL.
AA was flying again. I love watching him when he's motivated and engaged.
Larkin 22 goals = Matthews 22 goals
Karlsson would be nice.
Matthews missed a ton of games earlier in the year.
They don't ask how, only how many.
But seriously, I should have put a after my comment.
Disappointing. Toronto never tries when they play us.
Ehh I disagree. Love Panarin, and would very much like to see him here, but there are plenty of good UFAs out there this year. Karlsson, Stone, Panarin, Duchene, Hayes are all great to good players.
As much as people might scoff at this, I think it's very close to being true. In many Wings games this season Larkin has been the best player from both teams. He plays a huge 200 ft game with such passion... I've never seen Matthews take over like that. Sure he can dominate a shift, and has more raw talent and a better shot than Dylan. But Larkin plays bigger and is proving to be the leader the Matthews isn't.
Larkin 6 mil >>> Matthews 12 mil
I agree completely
