If they waive Lashoff over Cleary, then Kenny or Babs both need to go.  That is just stupid.

A beauty of a goal by Helm, looks like all those months off for the hand transplants was worth it.  Have been really impressed with Abby, he has been taking the puck hard to the net and creating scoring chances.  Never thought I'd say it, but we need to bury Miller and bring Tootoo back for games like that nasty bit on Saturday.  Has been fun having Eaves down in GR, he is averaging a point per game so far.

Don't they have a buyout remaining?  Couldn't they just buy Sammy out?

So why did they take Pavs goal away?  Only saw it played back once, but it sure looked good from where I was sitting.

Ouch, they are really starting to remind me of the 2010-2011 wings.  I sure hope Babcock finds a way to light a fire.

GR does seem to have rallied around him.  All that team really needs is a leader, they have plenty of talent, or did until the wings called everyone up.  They can score goals, it is just defense they struggle with.  Good for Ty!

God I wish we would have moved Hudler for a real gun.  Would have much rather had Commie on the point for the power play tonight.  Wings had good energy early and late, luckily Columbus didn't run it up too much in the second.  Kept hoping for Fill to get a hat trick, he is due.

 @Twig  @thebiglachovsky There is little chance we will ever see that 7th round pick, as it seems very unlikely Tampa will make the playoffs.  So yeah, Commie gets to play, and Brendan gets to sit in the press box for a bit.  Good for Commie, I guess?

I was not at the game, but the crowd seemed awful quiet early when the wings were not playing well, especially compared to the San Jose game.  Could a lively crowd have got the adrenaline flowing earlier?

I personally can not wait to see Conks play down at the Van Andel. McCollum and Pearce could use a gritty veteran to help show em the ropes now that Joey is backing up Jimmy again.

Nah, what we need is a gun to put our scoring over the top. We may need a Dman or two come fall, but we have plenty of depth there for now. The last thing we need is a goon.

Simmonds sure was fired up, I kept waiting for him to find the net. I thought it was finally gonna happen when he got behind the D, but the way E52 took him out of that scoring chance was a thing of beauty. Definitely my fave moment on the night. Bring back Commie!

Have always loved Joey. He will give up a softy pretty regular, but not 2 or 3 like someone else. Wings played crud buy still made something out of it. Todd was a wonder to behold. Another win when Commie is on the team, hopefully Babcock is keeping score.

Wings looked solid, bring back Commie. Fave moment was Cleary's goal. The shot was so fast, I didn't see it until I had rewound twice. Shots barely lagged, good pressure through all but the start of the third. Vancouver shined bright, the little wings shined brighter. Just need a backup goalie.

Everyone knows we are not battling the Canadiens for points. Team Lidstrom wins the games that matter, but you can not win them all. I would much rather the team fold against the Avalanche, the Canadiens, and the Islanders then the Bruins, the Blues, and the Blackhawks. Would still like to see a bigger threat then Conner/Mursak/Eaves coming when the inevitable injury hits.

If Helmer keeps hustling the way he did tonight, I would not be surprised to see an A on his jersey soon enough.

@Twig@ThroatShot He had a bad giveaway in the 1st in our zone, a blind backhand from the corner that luckily they didn't capitalize. When Stuart was out for the fighting major, it was E52 on the mucked change. Luckily, Howie was Amazing, yes, with a capital A.

Favorite moment was probably the brutal miss by Datsyuk into the boards. Nothing said "Finish em all!" louder then that.

@nicgrayson Keeping that stick down is hard when you have your head up, as Abby generally does. I worry less about it then the mouth breathing roughing, crosschecking, boarding, tripping, etc penalties. Better an incidental penalty then some intentional crap, good on Abby he has kept his to a minimum this year.

That said, Lidstrom got away with a nice Joe Louis Special and more then a hook or three already this year. I should do a mean Hearted spread come year end on TPH.

Team Lidstrom has proven they can win the big games, and even the little games at home. If they start showing up to the little games on the road, dangerous they will be.

@magnum9 I grew up in Deep East Texas (AKA, NW Louisiana) and personally I found it funny. Where I grew up it was perfectly legal to have a loaded shotgun hanging in the rear window of the pickup, but we all still laughed at the old timers who did it in town. It was just a really good way to get your gun stolen!

Conklin looked solid after things settled down. E52 looked really good, I think Commie must be teaching him how to use his size. The wings never gave up, I really like the vibe from this team. They are hungry every single game, and that can only mean good things.

Here is hoping he parks Ericsson for one game and shows us what Kindl/Commodore looks like. He won't do it, but we can hope!

Great game, really liking the stay at home Commie with E52, he manages to bail out E most of the time and doesn't get caught in deep. The whole bar I was at groaned when Mule didn't shoot that one from the slot, and just gave it away. Someone needs to pinch that guy and tell him he is the real thing!

@ThroatShot If they try to park Ericsson in GR, they will lose him on waivers. He is our big-boy. He does make a lot of mistakes, but it was Z who gave away the puck in front of the net to end game 7 and the wing's playoff run last year, not E52. He is also starting to get a lot of things right. E is no more a liability then Kindl is, and Kindl doesn't have E's reach. Overall E52 is +12, Kronwall is -5, why aren't you crying for parking Kronwall instead?

Besides, I am told he is quite handsome, and at least half the reason my wife watches hockey with me.

Wings looked good, I like Commie out there with B52. Kronwall played defense instead of 4th forward, and thus they gave up a lot fewer odd man rushes. Fave moment was definitely Pav and the boys celebrating while the refs tried to figure out how to call a puck that was deep in the net a no-goal.

The third period looked like the wings. Conklin was not half bad, though he had little support through the first two. Ian's +23 has gone to his head and he thinks he can drop in on every play, which cost us over and over.

Another strong game by the wings, favorite moment had to be on the power play late in the third when Babcock put in the 3rd and 4th lines. They looked like they didn't know WTF they were doing (which makes sense), but was none-the-less the right thing to do. Babcock++

It was a very good hockey game, everyone was skating hard, and the hits were outrageous, obviously lots of adrenaline. The wings owned the ice through forty minutes. Odd to see one get away from them so late, but you can not win them all. Favorite moment was indeed when Pav put Shae on his bum the second time he brought the puck in, classic!

@Reddy@thebiglachovsky He had to take the penalty, or it was an open net goal. I agree though, nearly every time Jimmy goes behind the net, I cringe. Liked it better a few years ago when he would just watch those pucks go by.

All the young guys look far stronger and heavier this season, even Hudler looks good so far. If they can get that fourth line producing and stay healthy, those 12-1 odds for a RW cup are looking pretty sweet.
