    Chicago vs. Detroit

    Chicago blows their doors off, 7-1.

    Detroit doesn't record a single penalty minute.

    In the "old days", there would have been blood covering the ice.

    While I hate the staged fights, it's sad to see a slaughter like this doesn't even garner a roughing call.

    Also, Brandon Saad got the second goal for Chicago at 3:21 of the first period.  He is credited with the GWG.  What a bogus stat.

    Any word regarding why Zetterberg was a scratch?

    Maybe he has a crystal ball and was protecting his +/-!

    What was Babcock or the Wings really going to do? Their roster is as pugilistically passive as it gets in the NHL. 

    Tootoo can't fight them all...

    Detroit's days of the Bruise brothers, Probert and Kocur, seem like a lifetime ago. Those two took punched first, asked questions later. Made blowouts watchable.

    Nope, but he could have fought someone!

    Detroit is new "softest" team in the NHL taking over the Oilers.

    Re: Chicago vs. Detroit

    Detroit has gotten a pass on being soft for a long time, because they know who they are and there is no act involved.  They concentrate on hockey and they usually win (until this year).  I kind of like it because its an honest approach, unlike the Montreal and Vancouver routine of acting tough  by being a pest, trash talking, picking spots, etc.  The Alex Burrows and PK Subbans of the world want to act tough but never back it up and rely on the officials to bail them out, time and time again.  I kind of like that Detroit actually takes the high road.  That said, it would be no fun being a Detroit fan and watch them get blown out without any fight in em.

    I miss the days of the bruise brothers.  Kocur-Probert would have been brawling.

    If Darren McCarty were still a Wing today I'd imagine he would've fought with someone, shupe.

    Yeah he would have.  But those 80s wing battles with chicago and toronto were fun to watch with those two.

    Fletch, I heard Ken Holland on THE FAN 590 last year being asked why his Wings didn't have a tough guy on the roster.  He said that question was asked of him regularly but answered he resisted the enforcer idea opting for team toughness instead coupled with loading the Red Wings with as much skill as he could.  Intimidate with skill.

    They were.  I still remember Wendel Clark saying he and Kocur would never fight each other because they were cousins.

    Yeah, that's what I mean RHO.  I kinda respect that.  Not my cup of tea, since I think the toughness helps the Bruins win games and I enjoy it, but the Wings have certainly made it work for a while.

    Re: Chicago vs. Detroit

    Had to go across state today for Easter, the only silver lining was I could watch the DET-CHI game. Last time they met on a Sunday afternoon, the game was so good I started a thread about it. Not so much today. Someone turned it to college basketball and that was it.

    I watch most the Wings' games because my wife is a Detroit fan, and I can't say I've seen any of this "team toughness" either.

    I don't equate the Red Wings with toughness.  Haven't for years.  I've seen games where Kronwall, Abdelkader, Bertuzzi and Cleary step into people.  Perhaps this is what Ken Holland meant.  I doubt he was refering to fighting though.

    They had the skill to make it work for them, Fletch.  As an example that deadly, always moving, always circling, weaving in and out PP of theirs that seemed to always find the open man, be it backdoor or otherwise made teams pay.  The Bruins don't have that level of ability on the roster and we know what the usual outcome is when they try to play like they do.  Their succuss tends to come from a rough 'n ready, aggressive style.
