Those numbers are very optimistic, Ericsson getting 30 pts is very high, Kronwall playing a complete season is unlikely (though i really hope he does). I see the number closer to 160 to be honest, +/- 10 pts.

The key for the wings is 0 injuries this season, there is no room for error.

While on the other hand I think you're going a bit negative... Somewhere in between seems reasonable... Around 175 points seems reasonable - you don't replace all of Rafalski's points but certainly around 50 %...

As an aside... I'm definitely going to buy a #64 Commodore t-shirt...

commodore will be a fan favorite (he was in carolina when i watched him play - he was my favorite).

he'll also be a whipping boy since everybody will be waiting for that bad pass.

What if Babs and Kenny, in their always thinking from every angle tendency, also thought they'd like to bring in Commodore to be the new HWipping boy for the fans? I mean, yeah Mike can play a steady stay at home game, play physical, kill penalties, etc. but he can also a pretty good HWipping boy.

EDIT: Make take some of the pressure off of Ericsson.

Upon further review, I've opted to go with a different nickname: "Brick House".
I will also retain the right to downgrade it, depending on his play.

With Ericsson's new contract, there's no way anyone could be a bigger whipping boy than him. He was the biggest one this year as a #5 guy making 900k. Next season they'll probably bash him for not stepping onto the ice correctly for his very first shift.

The 6 points are based off of Smith playing in Grand Rapids and possible call-ups from GR.

to be honest im pretty happy with this signing. its only a 1 year 1 million dollar contract. Its a replacment for salei, and he's not european. Not saying thats a great thing, but what it does mean is that Detroit just got abit more tough and alittle bit more mean. If Commodore plays with his head too and not running around all over the place (which i couldn't see babs letting fly), our pk could show some improvement as well. i hope it works out mike! Now Kenny Bogasian would be nice.

So now we have not one, but two right handed shots on the blue line? Hmmm...this may not be a bad thing to have in the arsenal.

Now that the Wings have Ian White and still have hopes for Kindl, I hope 64 is aware that he might have to be a healthy scratch every now and again.

It'll be interesting because Wiz has beef with Detroit and C64 has beef with the Jackets... They should fight

Hmm with white and Commy signed it makes you wonder if one of Kindl or Smith is a potential trade piece for a guy like Yandle. Commodore is the perfect number 6/7 guy, especially to show Ericcson how to use his size. White is no ***** either. If the wings can land a bigger offensive guy in a trade it will be a great sett up. It is decent as of right now.

The D got tougher for sure, White doesnt really take crap from anyone either, hes not on Commodores level but still can throw a check and play feisty.

Hopefully adding some Canadian blood to the backend will help Ericcson toughen up a bit, and guys like Abby will play tougher too knowing theres a 6'5 mean Canadian back there backing him up

Wings are gonna have their hands full this year playing Chicago. Adding Carcillo, Montador (specifically Carcillo) just made that team a lot more a ***** to play against.

Commodore can at least handle guys like Carcillo pretty well and toughens up their back end. This should help keep carcillo out of Howards face.

Im willing to bet money Carcillo and Commodore will fight next year.

montador is a tiny blip on the radar, since when has that guy become a "***** to play against"?

because it all adds up. Carcillo is a huge blip on the radar but combined with O'Donnell, Montador, and Mayers the Hawks all of a suddn became a pretty damn tough team that is going to be very physical against our top guys and probably not gonna be afraid of being all over Howard.

Jeremy Morin is probably gonna be up full time and he also plays that type of game and John Scott will be in and out of the lineup still.

Chicago got pretty damn tough all of a sudden and at least now Commodore can help defend against that. Abdelkader wont be all alone which will help him play tougher too since someone is backing him up

Why are we signing the BJ's scraps??
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Because takin on scraps from the jets, anaheim, Carolina and Edmonton has worked out well in the past?
