You can’t make this shit up

So coach Jeff Blashill made a subtle change in the lines at Monday’s practice, promoting Athanasiou to a line with Dylan Larkin and Tomas Tatar, while Mantha was bumped to the fourth line with David Booth and Martin Frk.

Jad - you are better off ignoring them, they are terrible and they don't know it. I hate tanking, but this team needs to tank and they are 3 years from recognizing this. AA, Mantha and Larkin are probably better off getting traded. They are kind of like the Mike Foligno, Johnny O and Mark Osborne of this new era of the Dead Thinfs.

They got outclassed the entire second period (gave up 20 shots) and just blew the islanders out in the third. 6-3 after being outshot 22-37.

Keep the L's coming boys. I love this team but they need a fresh start and some high end talent

Of course as soon as I start rooting for L’s for that lottery pick they reel off 4 W’s in a row.

They finally started giving AA some time with some other decent players (although I think they were forced to give him some ice time because of Zetterberg's bad back). Amazing what can happen with increased ice time. I know Holland and Blashill have been preaching "trust the process" but they may want to tweak their "process".

That Lightning player probably regrets throwing a punch at Larkin. Who knew that was coming?

He was sticking up for his teammate on a questionable hit but once Larkin started he threw some great shots. I wish the refs would have let them go at it. They jumped on wayyyyy too soon.

There were a ton of really unlucky bounces tonight for the Wings. I feel bad for Mrazek because he was flying all over the place making stops. I still believe Mrazek is going to turn into an all star goalie, I don’t think it’s with Detroit but he has all the tools.

Is it me or does it seem like whenever Howard gets on a roll he gets hurt?
