Another Wings' Debacle

The Nashville game will go down in my mind as one of the stupidest losses in recent team history. The Wings were leading 3-0 going into the third period. Then they went flat and allowed 4 unanswered goals to the Predators. And the Predators played an absolutely terrible game. But they won because the Wings gave the game away. They committed stupid penalties and failed to play anything close to what is called "defense". As it happened, I pretty much laughed in sarcasm as the lead went from 3 to trailing by 1, because it's so typical of the Wings to fall asleep with the lead and lose the game. Great job guys!! It looks like you're really into these games and hungry for wins. All us fans waited through the ridiculously long off-season just to see crap performace... Lewis needs to put his foot down and fire up the team with something other than his pre-game poetry. Players who aren't performing need to be put into the doghouse. But before that Lewis has to create a doghouse, because it seems like he's a little to nice to the players. With Bowman, players feared him and many hated him, but he kept them in line. I don't think Lewis wants to be like Bowman, because during that era he was the guy players went to to talk about sensitive issues. And I don't think he wants to be the hard-ass Bowman was. And that could be one of the problems we're seeing. He has to change roles more than in job title, but in action and treatment of players.
