Getzlaf, he can score he's got size and can play with an edge.

I cant stand Getzlaf when we're playing against the ducks. But he'd look damn good with a winged wheel on his chest.

We could use a gritty player like him. Even though it's waaaaaaaaaaay out of the possibility.

I love Getzlaf, but we have enough playmakers. Nash is a goal scorer, so I chose him.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Gotta go with Getzlaf. I can't stand him, but he would be my favorite player if he wore the winged wheel. He was the guy I enjoyed watched the most on team Canada in last year's Olympics. He's a great all around player.

Alfredsson seems like the most realistic choice given the role he'd play, the likelihood of prying him away from his team and what the Wings need.

Alfy would fit in perfectly with the Wings, is a warrior in the playoffs who will play through any injury and is old enough that he could be considered a deadline pick-up. It'd probably take too much to get him from Ottawa.

Getzlaf would be awesome too but we're very deep down the middle with Dats, Z and Val.

Nash would be an awesome addition to Datsyuk's line.

It's a tough choice between Nash & Getzlaf. I choose Nash because I think of him as the better teammate.

I picked Nash. Big, strong, physical, skilled power forward that can deke around the whole team and goes to the dirty areas. Maybe he can motivate Franzen to play like a power forward all the time. Would be pretty damn sweet to see 2 guys like that on the top 2 lines, makes for very dangerous lines especially with Dats and Z setting them up.

Stamkos, Doughty, or Weber.

Of the players on the list....

Nash.

I picked Ryan Miller.

He's not old or young, but he's a very good goalie, which is something we need on this team.

That's the kind of guy you can build a franchise around.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Weber.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Getz...Given his physical play, size and scoring-touch he'd be an enormous addition to this Red Wings club.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I had to go with Nash because of our logjam at center, and the fact that Nash is a big body that plays rough on the wing, which this team desperately needs.

The Red Wings really dont have a true goal scorer on the team so I'm going with the best sniper on that list, Jarome Iginla. He would score 60 goals per year with Dats as his center.
