I would have liked to see Babcock let Cleary sit and heal that upper body injury while Barnstorm skates on the Pavels wing to see what he can do. In hindsight, it couldn't have hurt anything.

Yeah, I mean depending on how hurt Cleary is that's not ahalf bad idea. Although, when players are in slumps taking games off isn't necessarily a good idea (for players who are regulars that is).

Hopefully he tears in up in the AHL and they have no choice but to bring him up and give him a scoring role in the roster. :thumbup: Or, at the worst, shed some weight next season and he comes up anyway.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Why are people so nuts about putting Brunnstrom on Datsyuk's wing or Zetterberg's wing?

Cory Emmerton outperformed him offensively in the AHL last year while spending some time injured and some time on the Detroit roster. Brunnstrom failed to make it onto the Leafs roster.

Should Emmerton be slotted next to Dats or Z?

Maybe Helm, who posted 30+ points in the NHL last year.

I've been torn a new one for suggesting Eaves on Dats' wing before, even though Eaves has a very good shot and has scored 20 goals.

Or Hudler. Who has scored 26 goals and 57 points. And is probably the third most naturally skilled forward on the team right now.

Brunnstrom has some decent skills. But he needs to prove he deserves a shot before he gets that slot. Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula, Franzen, Hudler, Cleary, Bertuzzi, Holmstrom, and Eaves are all guys who are have shown to be better offensively than he is, at least so far. He needs to seriously up his game, or revise his role. People were suggesting a Homer-type role for him. If he can add that to his repertoire, he'll be a top-sixer on an NHL team for years to come. The Wings are probably losing Homer AND Bert this offseason, so that's definitely an open spot he could slip into. Maybe then he'd deserve the spot on Datsyuk's wing.

I agree with Eva (about Brunnstrom, not Hudler). Brunnstrom has nowhere shown that he is able to consistently score at the AHL level, let alone in the NHL.

You know, I never connected the dots until earlier, but I guess we should have seen this coming after Homer played in back to back games this weekend. I remember seeing him play on Saturday and being like, hey, I thought he wasn't playing back to back.

Question and sorry if it's been covered, I know Brunnstrom doesn't have to clear waivers to come back up to the Wings this year that pasrt is clear. So if Bruno does come back up because of injury or something he would have to clear again if he was sent back down to GR right?

According to what I've read, he gets to play 10 games, or stay 30 days in GR, and then has to clear waivers again. I don't understand the waiver system at all, but that is what I read. All I know is that I'll most likely see him play Saturday night when I go to the Griffins game. Yay.

If he does well with the Griffins, yay. If not, then it'll be clear that he can't cut it at the NHL level.

I bet we will see him before he plays the full ten games that will require him to pass through waivers. he scored a goal in his first game as a griffin, impressive knowing the fact that he has only played on game this year.

He is exempt from re-entry waivers due to his AHL salary... also, the 10 game thing... what are you talking about? I don't even know what rule you're confusing here...

He doesn't have to clear unless he plays in ten NHL games or spends 30 days on an NHL roster from now forward. What he does in Grand Rapids doesn't matter. Brunnstrom and every other player in Grand Rapids (Janik, Exelby, Conner, MacDonald) who had to clear waivers to go down do NOT need to clear waivers to come back up until they hit that limit.


Does everyone remember when Janik was brought up last season, and then sent back down? No waivers either direction (he only played 7 games). Same rule applies to Brunnstrom now. If call-ups are needed we'll probably see a little bit more of Brunnstrom, some of Conner, maybe some more Tatar and Nyquist.

He should; Eaves is out because of his back. Hopefully he doesn't look like a fool again.


Bert's illness is a very rare one. It's called "Lazyandsuckitis". Some people manage to fight through it and not let it affect them as much as it could, but hard work is the only cure.


I like:


Filppula/Datsyuk/Hudler
Franzen/Zetterberg/Holmstrom
Abdelkader/Helm/Cleary
Brunnstrom/Emmerton/Miller


Switch Emmerton and Abdelkader if you like.

I wanna see Bruno play with Pavs. Bruno will provide much needed energy for the team (as he wants to prove himself) and what better way to prove himself than by playing with Pavs. I really hope babs tries him with Pavs because Hank didn't work, Cleary, Fil, Hudler didn't work... time to try something fresh.

Flip and Hudler have barely played with Datsyuk; Hudler has one point in one game with Datsyuk. Small sample size or not, it's definitely not "not working".


Everyone talks about Hudler needing to earn his ice time, but wants to put Brunnstrom, Nyquist, Tatar, etc. right on the top line. Don't these guys have to earn theirs? And before you say "doing well in Grand Rapids" none of them is even remotely close to what Hudler did in Grand Rapids. So if what they are doing in Grand Rapids earns a tryout on the top line, Hudler has earned a full-time, locked-in spot. Put Brunnstrom with Emmerton and Miller. He's not coming in as anything other than a warm body; if he plays well he gets to stay.

I am not saying Hudler hasn't earned his ice time. Believe it or not, I actually like Hudler, and if you look at my posts, I have never been one to hate on Hudler because he has been such a key role player for us in the past. With that said, I think the team just needs something new; something to provide a little energy and spark. Homer has been great all season providing energy, getting to loose pucks. Pavs has been good, just not Pavs good. I think Bruno could be a nice fit if we try it out.

Bruno- Datsyuk- Homer
Franzen- Zetterberg- Hudler
Cleary- Filpulla- Helm
Miller- Emmerton- Abs

I'd be willing to bet he plays with Z tonight... since we're all doing line combos here, I'll play...

Hudler-Datsyuk-Cleary
Brunnstrom-Zetterberg-Franzen (Swedish connection!)
Filppula-Helm-Holmstrom
Miller-Emmerton-Abdelkader
