RED WINGS @ CANADIENS, DEC 14, 19:00 ET

Recommended Posts

This team needs Drouin back so badly.

 

They are desperate for some real skill.

Annoying tjat the refs let detroit get away with a ton of interference and shit this period but called both on montreal.

Totally agree.

Bad Refs, Bad Luck, and Great Saves from Bernie were the difference tonight. The better team lost, and that happens from time to time

Truth is ever since Claude called them out they really haven’t been doing us any favours this year.

Habs were just as frustrated playing that game as fans were watching it. 

 

Wasting points on bad teams though...

I'm trying to remember a time when they ever did.  It's the norm, sadly.

This upcoming 7 game road is so crucial. I believe it will make or break our season.

 

Bullshit refs 5 to 1 PP...

Bernier with almost back to back shutouts against us! Ridiculous

Looks like the only person to put the puck in the net was the guy in between periods. 

 

Probably should sign him

15-18 and still (for the moment) in a playoff spot.

I wish we had Mantha. He shook Petry around like a ragdoll , would fit well with Domi

Me too.  The game before that, I wished we had Tkachuk.  We sorely lack gritty forwards with both size and talent.

The closest we've had is Rene Bourque !!!

The Wings and Habs are very similar teams, except that the Wings are the worse version. Both are fast, young, and dodgy on the back end. I suspect Price is mainly what separates us from the Wings over the course of a full season.

 

The result was an entertaining hockey game. A pity about the loss, but I enjoyed the matchup.

Price, Weber, Gallagher, Petry, Chariot are what separate us 

 

Domi and Larkin as well

as Drouin and Mantha can fight each other off.

I dont see that at all.

 

The advanced stats even outside of price have detroit as the worst team of the cap era and the habs as a top 5 team in 5v5 play with some special teams issues.  They arent similar at all.

 

Dont mistake the results of one game out of 30 to suggest the teams are similar.

A very disappointed Lose at home against the leagues worst, just before hitting a difficult all Canadian Western swing. All this talk about out playing them and so on! They need to find a way to score and win these games at any cost . Loses like these all year will be the difference on us not making the playoffs by 2-3 points again.

If they had a different roster, they might win more often, but they are what they are, a 15-18 team in 18th place in the league, 18th in goals for and 18th in goals against.

Barring a significant roster change, i still doubt will make playoffs, my guess at finishing 10th in the East still looks to be about right.

Getting Drouin, Mete and Kotkaniemi back will be a roster change of shorts. It’s possible that their return, plus backup goaltending from Primeau, might be enough to get us into the playoffs. Might.

 

A lot will depend on how our divisional rivals play for the rest if the year.

Backing into the playoffs, not a recipe for a championship team...like my Cowboys who haven't a chance in hell of winning superbowl, but may make playoffs.

Very much true. But for sure we are not a championship contender this season. I don't think we would be even if we got a rental player or two.

For 150th time, I would also point to zero all-star forwards are on this team and zero elite top six players just wont cut it. Maybe Boston won without one?

 

(Tied for 34th in scoring- Tatar, 12th best LW, so not really all-star/elite)
