He'll propably be put on LTIR and this means there will be a bit more cap room for a trade deadline acquisition.

Getzlaf for Sammy and a 4th rounder?


LOL your joking right? I would question Ducks management if they traded Getzlaf away for Zetterberg/Hossa.

From Holland the only reason he hadn't come up was he had some sort of hand or wrist injury and he would be up for his shot when he's healthy.

Tell me why Anaheim would do that, Getzlaf is on pace for 90 somethin points this season, and they just resigned him to a five year contract extension. Getzlaf is pretty much the face of that team in the future.

Right, because every player is only allowed one serious injury per season by the hockey gods.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'm fairly confident that's not what ZP40 meant by that.

While I've heard that type of sentiment echoed here before (and I agree its nonsense), ZP40 was making no such claim.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Honestly, I'm glad this is all happening now instead of in April.

Speedy recovery, Homer!

EDIT: After reading some other posts, I am NOT saying Homer won't get injured again. I'm just happy that right now is NOT April. 'Tis all.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

It sucks Homer is out for that long(?) time. But we can use our potential GR. Leino, and Helm will get many starts I think. And hope we will bring up either Abdelkader or Downey again.

As long as he has some time to get a few regular season games before the playoffs I'm happy! Warm wishes and good luck to Mr. Holmstrom.

This time it's on the opposite side of the surgery he had over the summer, correct?

While this will give us a chance to cycle through a few more Griffins kids, we'll have to try and keep our power play clicking without Homer in front.

This is a good thing. He really was in bad pain durring the playoffs and it certainly hurt his play. Getting him in for surgery now saves the team in the long run. 10 games after the surgery is plenty of time to get back into sync. Hopefully everything goes well and the surgery fixes his problems and gets him back on the ice at 100% come playoff time.

Plus this gives the team a long term gap to place a forward prospect in (Leino is the perfect choice since it's a top 6 spot).

Losing Holmstrom opens up a top six spot. At this point that's invaluable for the RW management because it gives them evaluation time to figure out who is best suited to be brought up next season when we lose 2 forwards.

I think Homer is reaching the end of his line. This is the second one of these surgeries in 8 months...Hopefully he comes back healthy and soon.

Positive side to this is LEINO stays!!!

With Homer reaching his end, it makes me want Franzen to stick around more.

This sucks,but at least he will have ten games to get his game in order. I just hope he doesn't have any set backs though....

Sucks losing Homer, but he gets a nice rest before the playoffs, and we get some hard working kids, and an enforcer in the lineup for some games.

Leino-Datsyuk-Hossa
Franzen-Zetterberg-Samuelsson
Cleary-Fillpula-Hudler
Helm-Draper-Downey/Maltby

Blessing in disguise. I love homer, but more youth only means a better work ethic overall. In the Wings system, you have to impress to get a legit shot, and Leino, Helm, and Ericsson know that better than anyone. We'll miss Homer - he makes our PP what it is - but there are worse things that could happen.
It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.
