Hossa will be the runner-up for the Pavel Datsyuk Award (formerly known as the Selke Award).



I thought that was the new name for the Lady Byng.

Giordano's, Geno's East and Leona's in Chicago all make infinitely better pizza.


Geno's East wins. But I'm not in Chicago anymore so =/

Hudler has one of the best saucer passes in the NHL. It's taken me a long time to warm to the guy, but his hockey instincts are exceptional. He always seem to know which fake is going to work, when he should just rip a slapshot instead of finessing it. Why can't he be half a foot taller and 50 lbs heavier?!

If Dats focused on developing it the way he has his hitting and defensive play, in a season or two his (already good) wrist shot will rival Ovechkin's.

Zetterberg is one of the biggest puck hounds in the league. He pursues that thing like it's made of bacon and he's Homer Simpson.

Detroit has the league's best record in games they don't care about playing: 29-8-6 (San Jose Dec. 18 and Chicago back-to-back excluded).

Detroit will repeat as champions

Franzen is a 50 goal scorer in this league

Datsyuk and Zetterberg are the best two way players in the game today

Detroit has the best offense in the league

Detroit has the best defense in the league

Detroit's goaltending is underrated

Steve Yzerman is the greatest all round hockey player of all time

Datsyuk has the best hands in the league

Lidstrom is still the best defenseman in the league

Kronwall will replace Lidstrom once he retires

Hudler will get 100 points

Detroit will not lose another game all season, including the playoffs

The numbers 24, 33, 30, 5, 91, 14, 25, 18 should all be retired and go into the hall of fame

Osgood is one of the top 5 goalies of all time

Detroit is just giving San Jose a sense of false confidence

Samuelsson has a very accurate shot

Lilja is the best defenseman in the league (next to Lidstrom)

Mike Babcock is the best coach in the league

Scotty Bowman is the greatest goalie of all time

Colorado will never beat Detroit in a meaningful game and we will never lose that old rivalry

Hasek, no matter how much I tried to love the guy, always SCARED THE CRAP out of me.

Osgood will always be my favorite Wings goalie, but Konks is growing on me.

I desperately cling to the hope that McCarty will play as he used to and miss the old days (grind line).

When Datsyuk and Zetterberg work their magic and embarrass opposing teams it makes me laugh.

Lilia makes me think Hasek thoughts.

Hudler is one of the smallest in person players I have ever seen, and is still amazing.

I knew he had hidden talents.

Jiri Fischer is one of the most kind hearted people I know of. I wish I could have met him last year at camp. Maybe this year.

Andreas Lilja is better looking in person than people give him credit for.

All of the guys are very nice, very generous with fans, and incredibly polite.
