Mike Babcock worried about Red Wings weakness at killing penalties | Detroit Free Press |
It's something that has been this team's weakness for the past couple years. They've drastically improved their goals against this season, but the PK is still a problem...especially when you give up two power play goals to the St. Louis' worst PP in the league.

Discussion: Nightmare on Helm street had a very interesting post on the moves that were never made. If you could go back in time and go through with one of those moves, which would it be? Draft LaFontaine? Datsyuk of Gomez? Trade for the Great One? Yzerman for Yashin? Draft Pavel Bure? Bring Fedorov back in 2008? (Note: if you say Yzerman for Yashin you probably won't be banned, but we'll all shun you and question your sanity).
