Not all teams understand loyalty. It's a luxury Wing's fans have grown accustomed to.

side note:
I like our line-up and I'll like it even more when Mursak is inserted into it. I guess all I'd look to trade for is a top 4 DMan and move Stuart to the 3rd pairing, but even then, Kindl and Ericsson have looked above average this season as a pairing and I don't think you break those two up. Maybe add a grittier 4th liner with some snarl. And again, Miller and Emmerton have both looked decent for their roles and Eaves is bound to come around.


Emmerton has been one of the better bottom-six centers in the league so far. His only issue has been faceoffs, and he usually looks much better; he was one of the best in that respect in the AHL, and although NHL centers are obviously better, his lack of success seems more due to a bad start on the draw than simply not being able to handle it. He's pretty much either cemented himself a role in the Wings' bottom six if he keeps it up, or he'll be traded in a significant deal for a team looking for a young, skilled PKer who could possibly become a decent second liner if he hits his projected offensive potential. If you include all 15 forwards currently on the roster, plus prospects, the Wings currently have at least 14 forwards (EDIT: who are 27 or younger) who could potentially be top-nine or better within three years. Many of them already are at that level. But less than half fit a bottom-six role; meaning a trade would definitely be necessary. Especially considering although nine are on the roster right now, one will have to be waived around the halfway mark. Plus Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and likely also Franzen and Cleary will still be around when the some or all of those guys are ready to break the roster.

I wouldn't say Vancouver flopped. They got to game 7 in the SCF. it was unfortunate they had a choker in 7uongo in net. A team that flopped would be our Wings between their last SC and the one previous to that.


You mean 7uon8o.

Although honestly, Thomas was just as responsible as 7uon8go was. Vancouver did really well for the first few games offensively, but Thomas just plain started shutting them down. Game three was a big time turning point. Especially after Rome's dirty hit, and Captain Goalie's inability to win the crushing blow. Vancouver was up 2-0 and he gives up 8? Not acceptable. The Canucks rode a largely "counterattack" offense. If the puck simply goes in when Boston gets a rush, that takes away a lot of counterattack chances. Thomas and the Bruins were helped a great deal by 7uongo's s***ty Game 3 performance. That swung the momentum all the way around, and in Game 4 it was another stinker, although it was only 4 goals. Vancouver couldn't recover, despite the fact they were tied in the series and 7uon8go picked up a shutout later in the series.

I know a lot of people are willing to move Ericsson and/or Kindl but honestly, I think they're progressing. It may not be as fast as some would like but they're moving in the right direction. Initially I wasn't a huge fan of pairing them together but it's working out well so far and if they remain a responsible pairing throughout the year they could one day anchor the Wings' Top 4.

Also, I agree that Miller and Emmerton have looked really good so far this season. Emmerton had a tough game against the Caps - especially with the terrible giveaway on the second goal.

Completely agree. The Canucks may have 'flopped' in the finals to some degree but making the finals is still better than 28 other teams that season.

The good thing for FLorida is that Sammy brings veteran experience and yet another Stanley Cup to their roster.

well apparently the trade hit booth hard...

David Booth obviously didnít see this coming. The popular Panthers winger joked about his Michigan State football team in the morning and showed up to the BankAtlantic Center early to do his workout.
Then he was traded.
Booth apparently broke down in tears when informed that he was traded to Vancouver in exchange for veteran wingers Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm. Booth left a message for his teammates on the dry erase board in the locker room.


and stephen weiss a very good friend and now former teammate didnt even get to say goodbye :(

Anytime this happens as youíre going out for a game, yeah, itís shocking,Ē center Stephen Weiss said. ďI would have liked to have been able to see him and wish him luck, say goodbye. Thatís the toughest part, not being able to do that.Ē
