This is the quote that got me most excited -

"I want to be more aggressive, physical and play a little dirty, too," Kindl said. "I think I can do that.

I'm hoping he gets the chance & maybe if he does, he can inspire Big E to do the same.

I'm hoping Commie rubs off on E more than anyone... teach him to be a little nastier and use that size more, hell hopefully both Kindl AND E pick up a little of that snarl from Commie... I still think Commie is going to be our everyday number 6 and Kindl will end up on the outside looking in, more often than not, but if he EARNS the job, then good for him... plus, there are ALWAYS injuries, so he will get his shots...

This would be very cool. Hopefully he'll learn to hit like Kronwall.

Great to hear.

Though he should probably avoid saying he wants to be a dirty player in the press. :P

He should use the more vague and acceptable "gritty" or "edgy" or "Pronger."

Same as saying dirty - it's a synonym.

The depth chart I want to see if Ericsson doesn't improve dramatically:

Lidstrom
Kronwall
Stuart
White
Kindl (breakout year, playing "edgy" and improved defensively)
Ericsson/Commodore

This would pave the way for the Wings to trade Ericsson while he still has value. Deal him off, perhaps with one of Tatar/Pulkkinen/Jurco/Jarnkrok and maybe a high (1st or 2nd) pick to get a quality defenseman. Preferably under 30. Maybe a guy like Yandle or Pitkanen, but I don't see either of those guys being traded unless their teams look to dump salary.

I'm very confused with the correlation between what you quoted to what you commented are.

I think if Kindl is given the oppertunity he will live up to those words. He's a good young player with a lot of potential and I can see him being a big part of the Wings Defensive Corps!!

He did it with Kitchener in the OHL; it made a household name, usually with an expletive in the middle.

There is none. It was a multiquote I had forgotten about, and I wasn't paying attention when I started typing so I forgot to delete it.

It really is sad that the NHL isn't smart enough to cash in on this. Imagine Doc Emrick saying: It's the Flyers vs. the Red Wings....the NHL 2012 Stanley Cup Finals on NBC, brought to you by Summer's Eve.

I believe there is a good chance that Kindl takes Ericcson's spot by the start of next season.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

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.

Its gonna be cool having a defenseman who is genuinely mean in all aspects of the game.

Yeah the wings have big hitters, but Kronwall is going to hurt you infront of the net or punch your head in like Commie will. Having this guy to show the younger guys how to play mean could be awesome for them, I expect itll rub off on Ericcson.

Kindl could be a physical player, when they drafted him one of Nills comments was that hes shown he can throw a decent left, he had a mean streak in the OHL but i dont know what happened to him





Mussleman was a tough guy too

Soft in what way, exactly? He's not a guy who is constantly looking to slam his opponents into the wall, but he's a talented offensive player and solid defensively. He was one of the best UFAs heading into the summer; Carolina was lucky to keep him, especially for what they did.
