It's been fun to watch that stat plummet!!! With each game, I think the addition of Calder was a great move. He's one hell of a scrapper.

See, just because a player plays for a crappy team doesn`t mean they suck. And Calder proved that point when he got traded here. Look how well he`s doing. Keep it up Calder clap.gif

Absolutely! 9 points in 7 games says it all.
Meanwhile, JW has 3 points in 7 games with Chicago.

Calder was a plus player for Chicago in 2001-02 when he was +8. Other than that he's been a - player every other season. Of course, he's played for some real dogs.

Yeah, that Chicago team (2001-2002) was the only good team he played for in his entire career before coming here. IMO they did make the playoffs that year.

I think he's doing great here. Calder is quickly becoming one of my favorite Red Wings. He works hard every shift.

I think that's the only one that didn't finish in the bottom 5.

couldn't agree more. He's the exact type of guy we needed. What are the odds on his final +/- at the end of the year? Anybody think he might get up to around -10? Maybe "even" or +1?
NOBODY ON THE RED WINGS IS LAZY, NOR DO ANY OF THE WINGS PLAYERS SUCK!!!

I think realistically with 12 games left he will end up some where near the -16 or -15 mark... But I'll take +1 biggrin.gif

He wont get past -10, he wil be lucky to get to -15.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

He's been earning a contract. What night have we NOT been impressed with him? He's done well EVERY night...he deserves to be offered a contract if he keeps it up!

The Wings have 3 left with Columbus, 2 with Chicago, and 1 with St. Louis. Calder could be +15 in those games alone.

If Bert makes the same impact when he plays as Kyle has done then I think Mr Holland has done a couple of great trades for the org.
"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

how's this change of tune. when we acquired Calder most posters were bitching Ken Holland like crazy for doing virtually nothing and bringing a guy who's -31. now he's a guy with own Wings-fan-loveboat

I'm bookmarking this thread. will love to add a link to Calder/Holland bashing threads once Kyle hits some slump...

gosh... some people are so dumb and have so short memories biggrin.gif

Is anyone excited about Calder filling the role of Maltby? Similar style of play, more offensive upside, a little gritier, younger...I am excited to see the team replace itself. Being a Red Wings fan, this doesn't happen too often.

Maltby should get a hardy thanks and a bag of golf clubs, Calder should get a contract.
