    It's funny how much chemistry Tatar and Andersson have. Those guys need to stay on a line together.

    Probably how I'd go as well.

    Pav was a 200ft monster

    Z was Z and helped dominate most shifts with Pav

    And Tatar had a ton of jump and really pressured Calgary. The line of Tatar-Andersson-Abby really played well after Franzen got injured.

    BTW Detroit's worst periods the past 2 games were with Franzen. He really does very little for me most games.

    And Smith scares me every time he's on the ice. Similar to how Lashoff scared me at the end of last season.

    No love for Bert? I think the guy has been very underrated this season. He's got 6 points now, and has had at least two "Holmstrom assists" so far this season to boot. Very instrumental in creating goals for us thus far, as expected. Not bad for a vet making $2M.

    Oh sure, he got my vote just before you posted. ;)

    My other votes were Dats and Zetterberg. IOW, our 1st line.

    Datsyuk played fantastic of course, the whole first line did. Winning battles, putting in goals, really exposed the Flames. Unfortunately, our other 3 lines, not so much, even though they did pot a couple, they were both kinda flukey. Andersson's especially.

    Weiss continues to play well. Continues to not get any points.

    Tatar again came alive in the last period, but the first two pretty lackluster. He's just not as aggressive as he was the first few games. And the turnovers. He's trying to force so much.

    Overall, felt we got outplayed most of the game. Again. Somehow came out with a W though. We have to start actually winning. Like, decisively. Not getting outshot, outchanced.

    Too many turnovers still. Nice to see some goals scored, but they need to hold a lead, it's getting old.

    Is it just me or is osbad just terrible to listen too? Its as if holland and babs had a live mic during the games. Can't wait for tommorow night cbc televises and I can take a break from him for a game.

    Nice to see some goals but give me a call when we start consistantly potting them against someone that isn't 29th or 30th in gaa. So tommorow won't count either.

    1. dats 2. z 3. ??? No one in my eyes was worthy of the third star so i'll give it to joey mac.

    I've enjoyed him quite a bit. Easy voice to listen to and calls out the Wings/players when something needs to be said.

    Yeah me too. He's much better in the broadcast booth than in the studio. I like that he's willing to call a Smith penalty "stupid" or discuss their poor turnovers or how Abdelkader not hitting the net leads to easy transition the other way. I've really enjoyed him. Also, it's nice to hear someone other than Mickey discuss officiating; aka someone who understands how the game is call these days.

    Weiss - Set up Cleary with 2 fantastic scoring chances, neither of which turned into goals, also dominated the faceoff circle.

    Nice comeback in third period. Hard game like I expected. I hope now Tatar stay and babcock won't send him again down...

    i think he's been much better lately. hope he keeps it up.

    ****ing cleary. seriously. they can't re-sign him. just can't.

    yeah, he's very noticeable out there offensively, has the puck a lot but gives it up too often. looked great on the third period, though.

    it's amazing how different player andy is with when he has speedy winger. abby was ok for last night in that line too imo.

    thought wings 'won' the worst period. got outplayed in the second. did enough to win it in third.

    lashoff is nothing special but i'm not having heart attack anytime he's on the ice.

    smith.. oh man.

    not kindl's best game either.

    How many points do you guys think Cleary ends up with? He's on pace for 11 on the year in a fairly big role and I honestly can't see him netting 20. He's got stone hands around the net, and can't create anything for himself.

    Probably 15-20. That's just the way it is. He'll get some secondary points and garbage goals here and there. As long as he stays out of the box, keep back checking hard, cuts down on turn overs and keeps it simple. Dump, chase whatever. It won't be the end of the world. Really need to Nyquist up. :help:

    I noticed he was very physical at times as well.

    Just like Smith I was shocked by how many people wrote off Lashoff last year. It's not like he's 26 and is just a Babcock favorite. He's 22 years old with limited experience. I don't know how much of a future he has with the Wings, but I think he'll be a serviceable defensemen for a while.
