The Pittsburgh Penguins "wouldn't mind moving RW Ziggy Palffy, D **** Tarnstrom and G Jocelyn Thibault." GM Craig Patrick is apparently very disappointed in Palffy's performance.




Probably a bunch of BS......but posting it anyways.
It is not a sprint, yet a marathon.

I'd like to have Palffy here as well. Tarnstrom is likely out for the season with a torn MCL.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

i'd give them osgood lilja and mowers for palfy a decent sized d-man. I don't care who at this point a warm body would do better than lilja has.

Palffy's contract is just too big for this team to swallow, unless some room is made to put give us more space under the cap. And personally, if Detroit really needs a somewhat one-dimensional scoring punch from the wing sometime down the road, they can just call up Hudler.

The person that I'd like to see here most, within reason, is Witt.

i thought hudler was a center?


and ditto on the witt thing,...although i've heard alot of teams are shopping for him. He'd be awesome on a line with lids.

I was under the impression that Hudler was playing left wing on a line with Manlow and McDonell. Eitherway, I'm awfully sure Jiri is capable of playing the wing, and he'll probably have to if he wants to crack Detroit's lineup this year. I would certainly give a guy like Hudler a chance over Palffy if we really were in desperate need of goals at some point this season.
