    Punishment for throwing octupus on the road

    Go into the area with a hat and blank shirt, and hide the octo in a large cup. After you chuck it leave the area, throw on a jersey, take the hat off and you'll be fine. That's how it's done in Detroit.

    Rolling Four Lines

    Suppose we have access to all our players (i.e. no injuries, Grand Rapids' kids etc). Who are we rolling and what do the lines look like? Keep in mind we're not taking into account potential. Just players' history, how they fit into the club and their chemistry with one another. Franzen- Dastyuk - Bertuzzi Huddler- Zetterberg - Filppula Mursak - Helm - Eaves Cleary - Abdelkader - Holmstrom Conner Miller Lidstrom - White Kronwall - Stuart Ericsson - Commodore Smith These lines are pretty self-explanatory. A nice mix of veterans and youth, skilled and physical players, all can produce, back-check and have shown chemistry with players on their respective lines. It's important to note that almost all of these players can be juggled and not miss a step. Also, Kindle has played great this season putting up a .24 ppg; although we've only gotten a taste of Smith, the kid plays like he's pissed off and has a nice flare to his game (which I think Kindle lacks) that would work well to the Wings advantage. I suppose the only question that remains is: why Commodore over Kindle? Simple, he's a big body and his value rises when playing big physical teams. This roster is dynamic, fast, a decent size and fairly similar to that which is currently first place overall.

    1/25 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Canadiens 7

    <br /><br /><br />7-2 against a non playoff/struggling team. Pretty sure the Wings are the joke.

    I hope Mtl goes double digits.

    Don't know who's been wearing #40 for the Wings this season, but he's pretty bad.

    Losing: a reoccuring theme

    It feels like the outcome of games played against certain teams is almost predictable. Does anyone else feel the same? If so, what do you think the reason for that is?

    Losing: a reoccuring theme

    This needs to be looked at again.

    1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

    When Datsyuk baited Kane into the corner and then drove the net it became blatantly obvious the game was over. Datsyuk has the sickest mind games.

    12/27 GDT : Blues 2 at Red Wings 3

    Blame the refs all you want. Bottom line is Z is playing like s*** and Dats has no support. This team won't win on our third and forth lines.

    Say Goodbye to the C, Z.

    Another great game by Datysuk, this time against Boston. Pavel had a slow start (as usual), but he's really brought back his game. All things considered, there's no doubt he'll be the next to lead the Wings. That Pasha magic is best in the league - bar none.

    Say Goodbye to the C, Z.

    <br /><br /><br />There's a difference between being bad and being "Datsyuk bad". Zetterberg has had maybe three decent games in the last twenty-two and you wanna argue the fact that he's been invisible? Stop riding him and take an unbiased look at how things are. And to call my post a "stupid and ignorant suggestion" because we don't see eye-to-eye is probably a testament to how low your quality of life is. And for future reference, what I posted wasn't a "suggestion" it was an opinion. And if you're comfortable with paying six million a year for a player who's on pace for forty-eight points then I'm sure there's a Montreal forum you should be on: let a lone the captain of the Wings.

    Say Goodbye to the C, Z.

    Assuming Nick retires this following summer, there are only three realistic choices for the next captain of this team: Datsyuk, Kronwall, and Zetterberg. All of whom dawn the A. It's reasonable to say Kronwall will not be the captain having just recently acquired the A. Not to mention going from the greatest two-way defenceman to ever play the game as your leader to Kronwall: isn't very inspiring (as underrated as he is). Which leaves us with one of two choices: Pasha or Zetta. At this point Z is no captain. Apart from being invisible every game, the majority of the time when he does make a mistake it ends up in the back of our net. Take for example the Joe Thorton steal in the offensive zone against San Jose. Zetterberg is always praised for being hard on the puck and protecting it so well. Now keeping in mind that it was Joe Thorton, it was still very uncharacteristic of him. And that give away in front of Jimmy vs. Boston was just brutal. Also his lack of production offensively is disappointing. For those of you who don't know he's on pace for a forty-eight point season. So we're left with Datsyuk. Not much can be said about him. He hits, steals, passes, scores, makes plays, breaks plays, P.K.s, power-plays and is the best two-way player to ever play the game. The only downside to Pavel is probably his slow starts to every season. Many of you seemed concerned with the way he speaks English, and that he wouldn't speak up in the locker room when needed. But can you really say he wouldn't? Do you really see Nick calling out anyone ? It's guys like Drapper who would say what the team needed to hear in and out of the locker room; Kronwall can definitely fill those shoes, and then some. And besides if worse comes to worse we can always get Zetterberg to give a speech/talk to the media: may as well make good use of that six million. As of right now it is reasonable to think Pavel will be the next captain of the Wings. That being said, I hope Zetterberg can find his game again and be just as good as we know he is.
