I find it hilarious they think the Detroit boards are worst.

I also find it odd that Sidney's the hardest player to play against, but more players think that Datsyuk is harder to strip the puck from.

Not surprised at much of it..though I would have though for smartest player, Lids may have been at the top. That's one of the main things you always hear about him.

I can't wait for the responses. What's the over/under on Crosby bashers in this thread. 15?

Loui is vastly underrated. And it's no wonder we have the worst boards and glass, we know how to use them the best :D

Was just about to post this. Great to see so much respect for Datsyuk. He was 1st or 2nd in several categories, and still he was apparently voted the 7th most underrated player as well.

Lids gets a lot of recognition also. Sure the boards in the Joe were voted the worst, but the arena, the ice and most importantly the TEAM gets a lot of cred from the players.

Probably from all the media calling them the most "active" in the NHL. On TV, I have seen other boards/glass bounces be just as strange. It is just that the Wings are smart to use it to their advantage.

I love the "which city deserves an NHL franchise" question. lol

Edit; I actually looked at the poll. I didn;t realize it was a "second team" I thought they were just cracking on Toronto reading the first post here.

The people in favor of the instigator rule are either non-fighters, or pests who are afraid of being beaten the hell up. Makes sense.

Surprised about Crosby being a great role model and everyone wanting to play for Dan Bylsma. Also, I think it's interesting how Washington and Boudreau have this soft and easy reputation around the league.

I find it interesting that people want to play on the Wings but play for Bylsma. What does that say about Babs?

Why? He's a great passionate young coach who expects a lot from his players. HBO's 24/7 only reaffirmed that.

Also, make sure you (not you GMR) click on the link and check out who came in second and stuff, a lot of Wing love!

For a second there I thought the only player they must have asked was Nabokov..
:ph34r:

EDIT: And I would also like to know who the 2% of players were that thought fighting should be banished.. Might be an interesting conversation if we had the names..

Of course everyone wants to play for the Wings. We treat our players well, respect them, and have the best management/ownership in the league. Now THAT is real point of pride.

I liked that one too.

The only one that really surprises me is that Lidstrom didn't win smartest player. He's a top 5 d-man all time, his most talked about asset in relevance to his awesomeness is his hockey smarts/anticipation, and yet he doesn't take that category? Either he was overlooked since he's in his career's twilight or that says a lot about Crosby.

Should the instigator rule be abolished? No, 66%

This needs its own thread so this one doesn't get swamped by a single topic discussion debate argument pointless squabble.

Not a surprise to see Datsyuk voted as the most difficult to take the puck off of :thumbup: As far as the hardest shot, I have to think Adrian Aucoin is right behind Chara.

Or Weber. He was pretty close in the All Stars comp. I think 104.8 or so?

Of course they hate our boards. We know how to utilize them to their best advantage, and we use them to hurt the other teams. They're just jealous that they don't know the secret to them.

Chara had 44% of the vote, Weber has 41%, doesn't leave much for the rest of the league.

As far as the few wondering about Lidstrom not being the smartest, he was #3 behind Crosby and Dats.
