We're currently sitting at 20 SOG without finding the net after tonight's game. thumbup.gif Anyone willing to predict what the count will get up to? I'm going to say 33.

He is also pointless in 5 games and has 2 points in his last 11 games.

I'm surprised he didn't wind up and shoot from the blueline during the shootout.

Seriously....he shoots from everywhere. In the game, he shot at least 5 times from a crazy sharp angle. He's gotta learn to pass.

Is it just me or does Samuelsson look like Billy Bob Thorton?

I wouldn't neccessarily mind the bad angle shots, if he would shoot the puck faster than 5mph. Those stupid wristers will be lucky to go in 1 out of 50 tries.
Go Blue!!!

If I got a dollar for every time Sammy took a shot, that'd be a damn good investment! laugh.gif

Seriously, I'm not too worried about him. Assuming everybody comes back healthy his ice time will be reduced.

It's frustrating sometimes, but a blind squirrel finds the back of the net every now and then, hopefully he'll peak when the playoffs start and a puck/two goes in.

If he showed any willingness to work and go to the net, those shots might not all be from ridiculous angles.

He is by far the worst player on the Wings. He shoots from everywhere, runs on his skates and cant shoot a puck to save his life. The Wings are going to run into a problem when Zetterberg comes back. How can you sit either Hudler or Filppula in place of Samuelsson? He's a joke.

Very true. Although Lang is a very close second for worst player. I will say, at least samuelsson works his ass off and isn't horrible on defense (like Lang).

Take this anyway you want... he shooting percent is 7.2%
Go Blue!!!

Ya it's funny because when he was skating in for his shootout attempt, I said to my friends " hes gonna go for the chest".Than BAM he shoots right at his chest. Sammy has a terrible shot, and he has to have one of the worst shooting % in the league.

i know, sammy just showed no effort out there, it's sickening....and don't forget about shneider hitting the post 2x in a row...how dare he....(insert sarcasm)...instead of whining about sammy's shots on goal, how about the lack of scoring from all our other players....quit using him as a scapegoat....there are plenty of others that can be put in this thread...

Samuelsson = a giant gaping *****... even if he can put up respectable stats playing with Dats and Z, someone who'd rather fire a 60 foot wrister than come within 10 feet of a defenseman will never be useful in NHL playoff hockey. Hate this wimp, he's nothing but detrimental to our team.

Sadly I prefer Willy to Sammy...

Current Red Wings Whipping Boys:
Lilja = Cone
Samuelsson = Spam
Lang = Lazy & Sucks

any others that I missed?

His slapshot is probably the second third best on this Wings team though.
