  1. Maybe Illitch gave Yzerman a call after Holland offered Jokinen the PTO

    6/22 GDT - 2018 Entry Draft

    Zadina + the Tatar trade have handed Ken Holland's legacy a lifeline

    2017 Draft

    Only reason I'm ok with this is because our reach picks in the second round have actually turned out decent so far, Bert and Givani Smith come to mind

    #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    9 looking like a lucky pick, hopefully I didn't jinx it. Even in the awful 2012 draft it was a good pick. When it comes to immediate impact, only players that come to mind being drafted after 9 are Chychrun, Pastrnak, and Fowler. Come to think of it the Fowler situation is the dream situation for us. That year, Anaheim missed out on a playoff spot, Fowler (incredibly) dropped 7-8 spots for them to draft, and Anaheim gets back in the playoffs with his help. Wings miss out on a playoff spot, Liljegren drops to the Wings draft position, and we make the playoffs as he's slotted into a 3/4 spot.

    12/06 GDT : Red Wings 4 @ Jets 3 (SO)

    Remember that year when we were something like 0-10 in shootouts? So happy to have shaken that off, hopefully it's Toronto that's taken that from us.

    Panthers Fire Gerard Gallant

    Gerard Gallant was doomed from the start of the season with the management change, their differences in approach (to my understanding new management wanted to run via analytics) and injuries to rub salt in the wound.

    10/30 GDT : Florida Panthers 5, at Red Wings 2

    Smith looked good on that goal

    10/13 GDT : at Tampa Bay Lighting 6, Red Wings 4

    If Detroit manages to stay competitive we'll be calling Toronto a big rival again soon. Considering the history I think that's pretty exciting.

    This year vs last year: a poll

    Let's try and remember that the original Euro twins took time to have a major impact in the playoffs as well. Zetterberg wasn't an impact player in the playoffs until 05-06 (3rd season), Datsyuk 07 (6th season). There's definitely a learning curve in the playoffs.

    Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

    Lebda Leino Emdog Commodore Avery Glendening, Kindl with the hon. mentions
  11. I would argue that Fedorov was generational. One of the Russians who paved the way for others with his defect, one of the best 2-way players and skaters ever, key piece of the Red Wings' dynasty.
