Abby and DeKeyser are probably both longshots.
And there seems to be a lot of competition in net this year for you guys.

Stupid penalties are always the hardest ones to kill off. You can't spear somebody and not expect a penalty. You can't crosscheck somebody in the back 4-5 times and not expect a penalty. You can't fail to clear the puck on the PK over and over again and not expect to be scored on.
This game really looked like game 1. The Wings got outplayed. Plain and simple.
Babs better work his home ice mojo on Monday.

I think the goal where the puck was lodged on the side of the net was certainly preventable by Howard.
But he's playing so well, he's stopping every first shot that he's in position for. You can't ask for much more from a goalie.

@Reddy Kahn(!) said on the radio he thinks they're trying to keep Brunner from getting burned out. He's not used to the grind of the NHL. *shrug*

I'd forgotten how much I miss the Todd-Ber-Tuzzi chant.
This is a different red Wings team than we've been seeing so far this season.
Getting Helm and Bert back and separating Hank and Pav made a big difference.

@Reddy Agreed, it's silly to see the owners as villains and the players as the heroes. The players don't have the fans' interests in mind any more than the owners do.
So long as somebody is will to pay "$14,000 for a ticket" you can bet somebody will sell that ticket.

Eastern teams hated it because of travel. Western teams got shanked in the playoffs. It's too radical. Go to something like the old 2 conference 4 division layout we had before this.

James Tiberius Howard made some pretty clutch saves tonight. But he did get beat pretty cleanly by that Seabrook onetimer.
Bertuzzi always gets points when he fights.

How is James T Howard a write in ballot?
If he continues to play like this he'll get in no matter how many votes he gets.
Fan ballots are only responsible for like 3 forwards, 2 defense, and a goalie.

The only new thing I like about the realignment is the schedule, but they could have changed that without this craziness.
I don't understand why both 7 team conferences are in the East. and why they didn't just put DET or CBJ into either of the eastern ones. Was it just to get the Eastern teams to agree?
The most logical way would be to give the 2 Western conferences the advantage and just chalk it up to travel disadvantage.
3 years, 2 months ago on The Elephant In the Room Regarding Realignment | December
Those original 6 teams have large markets. I guess the hope is that their fans show up even to road games. I could see it backfiring if those Florida teams constantly got trounced in their conference play.

I'd like to go back to the old Campbell/Wales conferences and Norris, Smythe, Patrick, Adams, divisions.
I think they only had to move a few teams around and change the schedule, they didn't have to be so radical.
But whatever, the NHL is so gimmicky now anyways.

Yeah, it took the Pens years of sucking to get their draft picks.

But let's not forget Yzerman was a 4th overall pick.

Stuart is 32. He's in the same boat as Z/Dangles/Mule.
But he's been hanging around Lidas, so who knows how long he'll be able to play.
I still think its funny they call the wings old. The Wings aren't any older or younger than they ever were. All the great Wings teams had average ages over 30. And what do you expect when you have guys playing their rookie year when they're 22, 23, 24?

Stuart obviously. He goes unnoticed alot of the time, good to see him net a couple tonight.
Huddles played the point pretty well on the PP tonight, as much as I dislike having him there. See Sharks SH goal for reason why.
