Janik proved in his time up here he is a capable 6th/7th NHL defenseman.

Janik-Ericsson or Janik-Kindl would work just fine as a bottom pairing.

Janik can do everything that Lilja can do.The only thing Janik can't do as well as Lilja is get his ass kicked.


Tell that to Souray, Boll, Sharp, Phaneuf, Begin and Neil.

Who said you need a six-pack to attract chicks these days? Wellwood has a different idea as to what a six-pack is.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I like pre injury Lilja and all but really the only guys he had a good go with wereBoll and Sharp. Sharp isn't the toughest guy around and Souray he landed a good punch and they kinda lost their balance it was a TKO or anything.

Janik is a better fighter then Lilja is what I'm trying to say, and much more willing to go.

Jared Boll would be a good fit here.Skates decent,plays well defensively,and he's not afraid of anyone.

Decent 4th liner; would appease the goon-squad here at LGW.

And the squad that likes people who can skate and take a pass. Boll is actually a decent player, he just doesn't score.

The sad part is since he's an NHLer he probably got to rub that tanning lotion on for her right after this picture was taken.

The thing that makes me nervous is seeing that there was interest in Scott Parse.I just don't want another ***** coming here.

It was Eklund, don't worry there was no truth to that free agent list.

Also, he is a raging ****** bag. I will pass.

Why is he a douchebag? Because he beats up on the soft wings every year?

Add him to our lineup and suddenly we're the team beating up o other teams.

How so? I don't know much about him as a person. I did enjoy watching him in the USHL, he was quite the wrecking ball. His NHL game seems pretty similar. I remember people saying that he was a pretty nice guy.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

He would be a perfect fit here.Seems like a good kid.

What about Paul Crosty down in Grand Rapids?Maybe he gets a shot next year up in Detroit?

I don't think Crosty will ever hack it in Detroit. We're better off signing an NHL type guy then relying on Crosty. However I would never rule it out because he did work his way up from the ECHL.

He plays forward and defense so I guess thats a plus. I just don't see him ever having the ability to play in the NHL.

Right now Callahan is the most likely tough guy to make our line up, and hopefully after june 25th Mcilrath will be too.

Well if Kenny has a hard time signing tough guys through free agency,at least he's drafting a few here and there.
