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.

DOES...NOT...COMPUTE...ERROR...REBOOTING SYSTEM....


If I recall correctly, wasnt Dandenault a right handed version of today's Lebda? And I do believe that Freddie's shining moment was hitting that one goal against Wahhh when we destroyed him 7-0.

So now, if only Commodore Norrington can score 1 goal against Wahhh in a blow out he will impress me. If not, then we shall have to see some stellar defensive play capped off with hard nosed crease clearing.

Dandenault was much, MUCH more competent than Lebda, man.

Freddie also scored the OT winner in Game 3 I believe of that same series.

You are correct on both instances.

He's just a little bit of an idiot with his twitter and complaints to the media about his coaches and so he has rubbed some fans the wrong way. The hope is that he'll learn a little bit from the notorious "Lidstrom locker room effect." Lidstrom is one of the best players to ever play the game, captain of the Red Wings and yet he shows no ego. Therefore, in theory, no one else is allowed to either. But again, it's just a theory.

I think he knows that he'll end up on waivers again if he misbehaves. He doesn't exactly have many career options these days.

I'm happy to see that there are people in Wings nation that are as happy about this as I am! Even if he might be a healthy scratch or gets assigned to the minors, he could be like Danny Cleary and pop back up and be a major contributor down the road. The only thing that worries me is him making more excuses about his poor play when he'll be with such a high class team. No excuses just results! Welcome to Detroit Mike Commodore!

Would that make Commodore the first Red Wing on Twitter?

I heard today that commodore was in talks to sign with either detroit or calgary. Detroit gave him a 15 minute window to decide if he wanted to play for detroit, and he chose to be a wing.

Wouldn't be surprised if they make Commodore give up the twitter account.

Didn't Lilja tweeter during games when he was out with his concussion? They were ok with that.

Or maybe it was some other form of communication.

You know after the Flip traded on facebook issue, I got to say the Wings players seem to not be on a lot of social networking sites.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

That makes no sense. The Filppula "trade" on facebook announcement was done by an imposter. It's not like a player released vital info. They will never be able to completely control imposters. Their best chance at doing so is, ironically, to create official accounts (like the official red wings facebook account) that can provide legit info.

What sense was I trying to make?

I was making an observation, that after that there appeared to be no more Wings on social sites. The two may have nothing to due with each other. It could be the age of the team, could be the schedule leaves them little time, could be a million reasons.

But one way to control imposters would be to not have any players on these sites to have their accounts hacked.

Who knows, certainly not me, my point was it seemed to be the last Wing I have heard about on Twitter or Facebook (I am not a member of either of these sites, btw).
