The Cogliano penalty doesn’t make a lot of sense. Bernier wasn’t in his crease.

Lindell and Klingberg sure don't seem to want that one point.

Imagine if Lehtoniemi was still our goaltending duel. We'd be down 8-3 right now.

Sure feels like the Wings are bigger, stronger, and faster. Not a good sign when a team picked to be a toilet looks better than you.

Want to start placing bets on how many games Monty lasts as coach?

Can you guess who was picked ten spots BEFORE Mantha?

Works for me. Nill’s GM record is *fargin'* terrible.

Pavelski has been awful. Slow, can't shoot, can't handle the puck. I hope it's just an adjustment period.

He does some things that I like, but he is so damned slow. He needs other guys to win the puck races, and that’s a problem for this team right now.

They finally managed it. Things started bad with two stupid goals scored, but after that they did great with lots of penalties, slumpy plays and turnovers with superb hide-and-seek games between Benn and Pavelski. Tied to 3-3 just to entertain the illusion. Lindell with the pass to Mantha and then Klingberg with the deflection first failed to give the win to Detroit but a nice faceoff loss in the defensive zone allowed the Wings to get it, although that was close with only one minute remaining. Good job overall, but not perfect. I'll give a B-.

Should have given Zuccarello what he wanted. He had instant chemistry here. Not a fan of Pavelski from what I've seen so far. Benn continues to disappoint. If he worked harder this offseason it's not showing. I'm tired of Nill and at this point couldn't care less if Monty was shown the door. His system leaves a lot to be desired.

Me too. Get rid of all the Jims while they're at it.

I also think the John Stevens hiring was suspect. That guy has never really been successful as a coach at the NHL level save for one conference final run 12 years ago.

It's starting to show that we completely whiffed on the 2014 draft (9 picks, and not a single NHLer), and all we have to show for 2013 is maybe Dickinson.
