Who will be the whipping boys for '10-'11?
Depending on how the thread goes I might add a poll.
I predict it'll be Salei and Ericsson.

If things are going badly, Howard. Let's face it... if the Wings are struggling, there is a hefty contingent just waiting to gloat and point the finger at Howard.
Cleary is my dark horse. If he isn't playing well and the Wings are losing, the dog pile will be enormous.

If not them, then probably Bertuzzi or Flip. I don't know. I don't really go after players individually unless they do something so egregious you'd look stupid not to.

Number one should have been Crosby.
I'm not referring to the best players in history sorry.

He struggled last year, and no matter how good he plays this year he will still have bad games (everyone does.) And Wings fans are good at turning the occasional bad game into some catastrophic pattern of suck.
More obvious? Bertuzzi, Ericsson, Kindl.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

So annoyed he's still on the roster.

No one, as long as everybody does their job. They know their assignments.
I was waiting for someone to say this.
Looking at the roster I feel like there's no one on there that will get dogpiled on as badly as Lebda/Willy/etc. I mean, yeah, Hudler used to get it pretty bad but I think the days of "Hudler is lazy and he sucks" are pretty much over. Now the worst thing that comes about in regards to him is "He's alright, gives his points, nothing more." I think the good majority of people on here are rooting for him.
Of course when I say whipping boys, I mean players who receive a relative clear majority of negative criticisms. If mostly everybody does their job, numbers wise, the worst I can imagine is around 50-55 percent for a few individuals as I look at the roster. Willy and Lebda were probably in the overwhelming 80s or 90s.

This right here.
Many here believe it's McCrimmon using his Jedi-mind-tricks on our unsuspecting Dmen, and causing them to F-up on a regular basis.

If this person scores a goal during the game, he will be restored to demigod status, and the 1/4 of the board (or at least those in the GDT) who did not dogpile him will be crowing and telling the rest of the people to eat crow (which is a bad mental picture in and of itself).
That said, my money's on Huds again.
Money on the board: Current total: $6
$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.
Hamsters I have had: (current Wings highlighted)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James

So basically Brad Stuart. I'm sorry I have yet to forgive him!!
It will be whoever turns over the puck/pinches/breaks a stick/misses an assignment/ices the puck/sends it out of bounds/takes any penalty not called "five for fighting"/misses the net/knocks the puck in the wrong net/allows the puck by him on the way to the net at the most recent inopportune moment.
