Anthony Not Impressed With Effort

The Detroit Red Wings have now lost 3 in a row, and GM anthony Neilson is worried. He is not impressed with the effort the team is putting out on the ice. He believes they can do much better than this, and this is completely unacceptable.

The wings lost 5 - 1 to the Dallas Stars three days ago, in a feat where it was either Nabokov was at fault letting in 5 goals in 23 shots. "We would expect more from one of the top goalies in the league, that kind of performance just wont cut it", Remarks Anthony.
The following day the wings lost 3 - 2 to the Predators, the day before Anthony had dealt Sandis Ozolinsh, and Daniel Alfredsson and more out of town, for a better backup goalie in Chris Osgood, and cheaper players in Sergei Zubov and Mark Rechhi. The GM wouldn't harp on the Wings for this one, since the players were shipped in late last night, and didn't have enough time to mend in with the team.

Tonight's game was unacceptable though, thier forewards only got 17 shots to the net. They just didn't put enough effort into the game. Anthony is very disapointed in what the team has done, and is getting the coach Eddie Olzyk to get the players to the rink bright and early for a long practice before tomorrows game against San Jose.
