    gritty players I would like the wings to sign

    Zenon Konopka. Gritty, tough, fights... annnnnd wins Face-offs. There, see? Not totally useless. Sign him up, Kenny! Otherwise...? Is Arron Asham a FA this year? Yes? Well, there ya' go. No off-season discussion would be complete without his name in the cards, amirite?

    Brian Rafalski announces retirement after 11 NHL seasons

    Great news. Now we can re-sign Lilja.

    Your preferred era of play/officiating?

    The 80's. For whatever reason, the clutching and grabbing wasn't (or didn't seem) as blatantly obvious as it became during the 1995-2004 era. You didn't seem to have a bunch of guys who would just latch their sticks onto another player, and literally be ferried down the ice (which, as we know, was a huge problem during the Dead Puck era). Maybe I'm biased (I do love 80's hockey, for a number of reasons), but I thought the officiating seemed more balanced then than it does now. You had clutching, hooking, and all that jazz... but it wasn't as over the top as the late 90's/early 00's was, nor was it as overly strict as the game has become post-lockout.

    Versus fires 29 people

    All the more reason to me to continue syncing the Wings radio feed whenever they play on Versus. Pierre McGuire? Oh man... it's like bad just completely bypassed worse, and went straight to unbridled crap. Don't we get enough of that guy already?

    Wings Have To Toughen Up Soon

    Hah! Don't make me laugh. Sorry, but big does not = tough. At no point, other than the occasional rare fight, have I seen Ericsson display a true mean streak. I'd say he's about as intimidating as Eric Daze.

    Enforcer Poll

    Ah... couldn't have said it any better myself. If the Wings *wanted* to sign George Parros or Derek Boogaard, you wouldn't see any objection from me. I'll value an enforcer over the likes of Jiri Hudler any day of the week, and twice on Sunday... and that's just my opinion.

    Jiri Hudler Watch Thread

    That was LOW. Ahh... forget McRae anyways. I was always a Behn Wilson kind of guy myself.

    Franzen out 4 months with torn ACL

    Bertuzzi and Filppula need to step up now, more than ever. Even more so, the defense, goaltending, and PK essentially need to play with the desperation that they showed last night every night, since the offense will be spread too thin to make up for poor defensive mistakes (like last season).
