Thing is, he would be a legitimate top 2 line winger on the Red Wings. Put him on Datsyuk or Zetterberg's left wing and that is as scary a duo as any other on the team.


Do you honestly believe Kariya is good for the Wings, or are you just some Blues fan who wants to see us sign a washed up player who's always hurt and eats up cap space, just so you can laugh about it afterwards?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

5 or so years ago I would have agreed. These days he's not better than anyone on our top 2 lines. What did he score 16 goals on the top line for the Blues? I'd rather put Flip or Bert out there!

Wow, 16 goals on the top line? Didn't Modano score 16 on the third?
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

Oops, my bad! Kariya scored 18 goals and 25 assists in 75 games last year. He did however score 5 of those goals against the Wings. So an incredible 13 goals against the rest of the league. Not the greatest numbers for top line minutes. I'll pass and take Modano!

I honestly don't see Kariya being an ideal complement for either Hank or Pavel.

Our top six is just fine. Kariya isn't better than anyone the Red Wings have now.
