I agree with anyone who says Bertuzzi, he is primed to be the whipping boy this year. The good news is that if we need any opposing players punched in the back of the head he's there for us. :P

Real fans don't hang players on their team out to dry. These are your Red Wings, take em or leave em. Mistakes happen in the game. Players have bad seasons and a bad stretch of luck. Its hockey. This is why its a team sport. Win as a team. Lose as a team.

I predict the choice of whipping boy will be divided among the following sub-groups on LGW:

Pro-Lilja - Salei
Pro-Hudler - Filppula
Anti-Ozzie - Howard
Pro-Enforcer - Hudler, Modano, anyone on the 3rd or 4th lines that doesn't fight


Hi there. :lol:

Bertuzzi will take a beating as a whipping boy. But, for the sake of originality and surprise, the whipping boy will be Kronwall. His enormous untapped potential added to Nick Lidstrom's eventual retirement on top of his propensity to be injured and he could be very well setup for failure.

Ericsson you suck :ranting:

Ericsson jsut made another bonehead play

lol you piece of s*** Ericsson.

If he was battling for a spot, that would have earned him a spot in GR.

Ericcson looks the same

lol Ericsson...

After those comments in the White vs Red game today I'm switching my pick to Ericsson, all in. :P

Sad as I am to even have to think about this subject, my money is on Jon Ericsson and Flip. Let us hope I am proven wrong.

well based on last year, Bertuzzi is the front runner. Other than that, if he doesnt score at least 60 goals. Huds.....

My wish: A healthy roster

I'd throw my personal choice of Stuart in, but everyone seems to have a hard-on for him, despite him never picking up guys in front of the net.

Sigh... Looks like Ericsson is the early #1 candidate.

Ericsson is making a major case to be that guy this year if he keeps this play off.

"Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings." - Steve Yzerman
