  1. Don't know if it's been mentioned already, but this dawned on me last night: Kronwall Ericsson Smith Quincey Kindl Lashoff All Red Wings draft picks except for Lashoff, who we signed as an 18 year old. An all home grown backend!
  2. My memory might be fuzzy, but I don't think Quincey had anything to do with Ericsson. I think Quincey was waived to keep Chelios and Meech. Quincey was waived at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, Big E started in Grand Rapids that year if I'm not mistaken.

    Riley Sheahan drunk and in a Teletubby costume would be more serviceable than Cleary at this point.

    Oof. Really bad game for the Wings. Hopefully they can put it behind them and turn things around quick. Some good teams are 0-1 after today, so there's no need to panic, but you don't want to start slow with this shortened season.
  5. I think Bertuzzi fits best in the bottom 6, maybe getting some powerplay time and some top 6 time on occasion. Plus his usual shootout spot. I think a bottom 6 along the lines of: Bertuzzi - Abdelkader - Prust Miller (Cleary) - Helm - Eaves Would be really strong. I love Bertuzzi, but we have too many streaky players in the top 6 right now. I think he can still provide some good secondary scoring though. I also think with less minutes he'll stay healthier and be able to play more physical down the stretch like we've seen him do before.
  6. I'd like to see something like: Zach Parise / Pavel Datsyuk / Johan Franzen Gustav Nyquist / Henrik Zetterberg / Valtteri Filppula Drew Miller / Darren Helm / Patrick Eaves Brandon Prust / Justin Abdelkader / Todd Bertuzzi Danny Cleary (Rotating with Miller) Ryan Suter / Niklas Kronwall Kyle Quincey / Ian White Brendan Smith / Jonathan Ericsson Jakub Kindl Jimmy Howard Joey MacDonald -----
  7. When is the last time we scored with the goalie pulled? Calgary last season?
  8. Lots of debate over this one. Especially between Roenick and Milbury. Keep in mind, this idiot Milbury defended Kostopoulos' hit on Stuart, saying he "loved it". What do you guys think on this one? Letang is apparently out day to day, and considering he was concussed already this season, that could be bad news.
  9. While I wanted to see some improvement in our bottom six, other than the Pahlsson deal, the prices really did seem to be too high. I hope we'll give some of the younger guys like Tatar a chance to play, because our 4th line is dreadful as it is right now. The hype around some of these lower level players this year was unreal. It always surprises me how these players get overrated by fans and GMs alike. I'm having flashbacks to Brendan Witt. I don't think anyone made any big improvements. I'm not too impressed with the moves by San Jose or Chicago. Nashville made some good moves, but I don't think they were anything that put them over the top. I'm scratching my head a bit when it comes to the Hodgson deal by Vancouver. I don't know anything about the guy they got in return.
  10. I like the move as far as bringing him back goes, but I'm a bit on the fence about sending a first rounder the other way. I thought for sure our first rounder would go towards bringing a forward in. I just hope we don't have to trade Tatar, Nyquist, or Smith if we make another move. Either way, looking forward to seeing Quincey in the line up. Definitely an improvement on our blue line
  11. Franzen coming back from being injured Stuart was the one with the most payoff, obviously. Schneider was a great deal though as well, I loved watching him here. The Lang, Calder, and Bertuzzi deals were really exciting, to me at least. I'd consider the Calder deal better if it had gotten rid of Williams forever, but Holland had to go and bring him back. Jiri Slegr was quite the lucky guy, going from the awful Thrashers to playing one playoff game and winning the Stanley Cup. I just remember when we were approaching that deadline there was lots of talk about Kasparaitis, only to have him go to the Avalanche. That was a huge bummer to me at the time.
  12. Can we please get Mursak in for Emmerton?
  13. Pretty interesting. I think we definitely would have made it out of the second round and had a better chance in the third round.
  14. His assist on the Rangers' third goal was awesome
  15. Same reason the Sharks traded Setoguchi one day after signing him to a 3 year deal. To improve the team. The real question is, why would anyone trade for Ericsson?
