With Holland saying he is going to sign a decent player that is hard to play against and made it kinda sound like he wants someone who may drop the gloves I think Adam Burish is one of the forerunners for this spot as a UFA and Chicago may have to let some players go.

I was wondering if anyone had read anywhere or seen anything about him saying he wants to resign in Chicago or wants to go somewhere else? Anyone know any decent Blackhawks forums I could look for some info for this guy, I mean, he's hard not to want in a wings jersey.....

I like Burish's gritty play for sure but would rather have somebody with scorer's touch say like Matthew Lombardi. Pretty sure he would come at a higher price but definitely like his ceiling better than a guy like Burish. Not to mention no more stinkin Badgers!!! (last part's a joke, love you Raffi!)

Yeah Burish definitely doesn't have a scoring touch, but Holland is looking for someone relatively cheap that can play a 4th line role. Burish wasn't healthy at all this season, he played only like 13 games so he might come cheaper then he normally would've.

When he was healthy the year before he played 9:12 a game, and 2 minutes of shorthanded time per game. So he can kill penalties, play a regular shift for a 4th liner and he had 16 fights. Looks like the guy to me. Its gotta be either Burish or Nystrom that we sign.

Sounds good to me. As long as we make some kind of move I just know one thing...Burish, Abbie and Eaves for a possible 4th line? Wrecking balls

Oh god, imagine watching that line play. Burish and Abdelakder would combine for like at least 25 fights and Eaves isn't scared to stick his nose in there, not to mention all of them are pretty big hitters.

I would love watching that line play.

worth it if they win a championship... and more likely that guys will take discounts to stay (see Detroit Red Wings). but then yes, they will still be have to let a lot of guys go haha

Datsyuk: I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo.

I'd love to have Burish on this team. Would love Sharpie but I know we couldn't afford him :yowza:

IF the Hawks win the Cup this year, I would hesitate to add Burish to the line-up. I'd rather have someone "hungrier" than a guy coming off a cup win. Just my opinion.

I think Burish would be a awsome pick up for the Wings, he probably has the same scoring touch as Abby or Helm i could see Burish putting up 20pts which ill take especially with his style of play.


Franzen-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Filppula-Eaves
Burish-Abdelkader-Helm
Draper

Id be happy with these lines next season, 3 pretty solid lines of scoring and would be a hell of a 4th line.

Like where your heads at but I like this...not much for line combos but away we go (fully ready to be ridiculed lol)


Franzen-Zetterberg-Cleary
Hudler-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Eaves-Filppula-Bertuzzi (would just rather he goes)
Abbie-Helm-Burish

Changed my mind on Eaves with the 4th line. Still think he brings an excellent wrister that could score more with the right set. Plus I am just praying, hoping, wishing, pipe dreamin for Clears to be back to form and get that line back with Hank and Mule.

See i like Bertuzzi and thought he had a great season and pretty good post season, only if he could cut out some of those penalties id be real happy, but if he left id like Raffi Torres in for Bert another big winger, i think Torres would bring the same scoring ability but a little more grit to his game like old Bert.

I still think if Burish came to a new team he would really want to prove himself. Not to mention he's like 26 so he'll probably still be hungry for more cups and we can have a fairly tough guy for years to come instead of the typical come here for a year then retire tough guys we're used to.

Yeah I don't think guys win 1 cup and lose the hunger imo. In fact, getting that ring only makes these guys want to win more. At 26 settling for anything really doesn't hack it. Although I am not in the league I would not just settle to be at this sucky job for now lol.

Adam Burish is pretty good but is coming off an injury-riddled season, so IDK if his stock's necessarily that high. I agree that the Wings need a hard-nosed player, but I don't think Burish is the right guy.

Also, being a former Coyotes STH, Lombo's a great player but I doubt the Red Wings will be able to get him without blowing their cap situation out of the water and he doesn't do much to add toughness to the team.

Zenon Konopka, however, not only lead the league in fights for the 09-10 season, but also has a 63% face-off win percentage. A fourth-liner who can win faceoffs and fights would be a great fit on the team, considering Drapes could be the faceoff guy on the fourth line should Konopka be serving a penalty.

How I'd dress the team in that light...

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Franzen
Hudler-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Helm-Holmstrom
Abdelkader-Konopka-Draper
Reserves: Ritola for the scoring lines, Miller for the checking lines.

With the stats he has put up this season, he may have to pay somebody in order to play. He can expect a big cut in pay; then again, in a weak moment, some foolish team may pay him too much. And he should never have done that commercial.

Who would you prefer?

I'll throw my lines in this thread with Burish. He is definitly a player that the Wings should be looking at. He is a decent player, and seems willing to drop them whenever needed. He doesn't always win, but he's ready to fight.

Flip- Dats- Homer
Franzen- Z- Bert
Huds- Abby- Cleary
Burish- Helm- Eaves
Ritola, Drapes

Do teams ever swap RFA's in the off-season? I remember reading that CBJ wasn't too high on Boll (no idea why), and it seems that they could use Miller or Meech. Would this be a possibility, or would the Wings be in for picks to get it done?

Nystrom is better than Burish in pretty much every way, and will probably cost about the same. Though I'd be ok with Burish.
