Abdelkader will make up for all of his stupid penalties and score 2 goals.


And officially take over from Sammy as most hated/most loved in one fell swoop :D
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I just hope Salei is not on the ice if it's close late in the third. What a f*** up he had. All he had to do was put the puck around the boards. He panics and sends it hard around. Abdelkader is another one. He has to get his head on straight. King of the untimely penalty must be ready for game 7. Whether you like him or not he is an important part of this team.


Yeah, Abby can't be benched. He does take stupid penalties are key moments, but he does a lot other things, just ask the Sharks defensemen. His hitting and forechecking would definitely be missed. Babcock should just keep him on the bench in the final 5 minutes.


Just an observation : Is Thorton the new Crosby. I mean I haven't even see Crosby ***** as much as Thorton. Plus his cheap shots on Z... Notice he doesn't go after Big Bert and for god sakes he even backed away from Big E. Just hate that guy right now.


Never really liked Joe Thornton. I always felt he was overrated early in his career and that the media (mostly Canadian media) were pushing him to be the next Lemieux or Gretzky. Now he's a whiny little... not very becoming of a captain. Come to think of it, he reminds me a lot of Lindros when he was in Philly. Big guy, delivers cheap shots, whines when someone hits him back. Winning Game 7 would be great for the Wings, but it will the enjoyment will double knowing that Jumbo Joe lost.

Its funny that it went through Demers legs. It was his stick that deflected away Z's sure goal. When that happened, I thought "Oh man, come on hockey gods, don't do this to me!"

Hudler 's swing this season from "burn him, and then burn the ashes, and then put the ashes in an airtight container" to "OMG WTF HE RULZ!!!" in January/February and then back again when his line wasn't producing earlier this series among the general majority of this board was far greater than anything Sammy ever saw as haters or any kind of "swing" opinion.

Osgood after the end of the first round of the 2009 playoffs is probably the largest swing ever. "Worst goalie ever to play for the Wings" to "Best goalie in the world!!!"

Not a lot of us can have the resolve like you to put up with Hudler's non-physical play, choppy little strides, and indecision with the puck since coming back to the NHL. His stretch he had while playing with Pav and Cleary was what we felt we were getting when we re-signed him. I can't kill anyone for their play last night except another bonehead Abby penalty again in the 3rd. That has to stop.

Where the hell was this Red Wings team for the first three games? This is the kind of hockey we know they can play. 60 more minutes.

It just seems like that because you are ultra-sensitive about how other fans perceive him for some reason. There has actually been more of a 'wait and see' attitude regarding him from what I've read over the course of the season and aside from a few small flashes, we're still waiting.

In case people wanted to get a realistic feel to exiting this game last night...




Meh, doesn't really give the feel, I was hoping I'd see myself running by and high fiving people like I was paid for them in commission or something :lol:

Can we tape Abby to the bench late in game 7 if we have a lead?

31 points in 43 games after Christmas. Only 11 of that was with Datsyuk.

It would have been higher, but the time after the HDC line was broken up to try and get Lazybones Franzen going sent Hudler to the fourth line with a 5-6 minute reduction in ice time, despite his excellent play. Way to reward hard work and success, Babs. Hudler isn't scoring at all? Bench him. Hudler is scoring more than anyone on the team? Bench him.

Huds scored 3-9-12 in 17 games between Christmas and Datsyuk's return on Feb 7th (and the assembly of the Hudler/Datsyuk/Cleary line). That's about the pace people were expecting from him. He was playing mostly third line, without any consistent linemates during the first part of that stretch. The second part saw mostly Filppula, but he only scored 4 points in the last 7 games compared to 8 in the first 10 games.

People are still mad at him for a slow start. Guess what people? Slow starts happen. If Hudler were to to have said he was injured, would that have made any difference? Franzen's injury at the end of the Phoenix series seems to have given him a pass for poor performance for the entire second half of the regular season.

Kind of obvious in this quote that Babs is ape s*** over Abby and wants him to correct this instead of benching him:

"You gotta decide, are you going to be one of those guys your whole career that takes a penalty at the bad time or are you going to look after it?" Babcock said. "This is a great kid and a good teammate, and he's going to get it looked after."

No, not at all. You're just very fixated on Hudler, so it seems that way to you. And yes, he has been useless for most of the season, especially given his cap hit and given that he's useless for anything besides scoring in very specific situations. It's unfortunate, but it's true.
