Mantha has played fairly well, abby is having a good season, nielsen is on pace for 20+ goals. Frk has been pretty good too.

On defense green has been great even his D is better. Daley....lol...say what you will but more often than not i think hes doing alot more good than bad out there. E is having a decent season, kronwall has played in all the games..he hasnt been terrible, but not really good either. DDK has struggled, ditto jensen and XO.

Howard for the most part has been fantastic give or take a few ugly outings, mrazek has been pretty meh.

Where this team has struggled most is in continuity. Individually theyve been pretty good, but as a team theyve been pretty suck, which for me points a big finger at coaching. Alot of great individual effort and not nearly enough teamwork. Alot of our games this year are coming down to a handful of really bad plays.



I ma not sure what curve you are grading on, but the absolute test is points.

This:

Defenseman Niklas Kronwall said the Wings look like “two completely different teams. I know the roster doesn’t look that much different, but I think we have done a lot of good things. Standings doesn’t always show how well you’ve played. Most times it does, but I think in our case, we feel there are some nights we should have been rewarded a little bit more.”

One, your delusional. The only thing that is a positive is the development of some players and even that is hampered by team management. It's also the only reason anyone else is doing any better. Two, your mother's a whore. Three, anyone who says we should have been rewarded a little more- that's like people who say they don't test well. So, you know the material, except when you have to prove you know the material or we won the game, except on the scoreboard and in the standings.

When did Kronwall become an entitlement generation snowflake? Quick somebody give him a participation trophy!

Points are indicative of how well they're built and coached, but individual performances don't necessarily reflect in the standings.

Then again, maybe my expectations have sunk so low that a semi-decent performance looks like a B to me.
