Point of order.

Note how fighting has not turned this game around. It has nothing to do with who is fighting, it has to do with the fact we aren't scoring. It has nothing to do with the fact that we don't have quality depth, it has to do with our top six. We need to add a good top six forward and balance out the talent.

I still say Fil Dats and Franzen need to be together on the top line... but there is nothing else to make the second line really respectable. Cleary, Hudler, Bertuzzi, Homer... these guys cannot help Zetter. We are two top six forwards short honestly... Maybe Hudler and Zetter can work together if they get the right chemistry guy.

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.

The question is who is worse tonight? The Wings or the refs?

Second part of my question: why is Conklin allowed to play on this continent?

The fight seemed to help Edmonton, though.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Besides the PP, the biggest things that irks me about the Wings is there never seems to be anyone:

- stick on the ice in front of the net during a centering pass
- taking it to the net
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Pavel Datsyuk > x (where x is the name of any active hockey player)

It sure would be nice to score at least one goal this period, since Joey is doing his share. (When was the last time Z scored?
I can't even remember...oh wait, I guess it was a SO goal; seems like a year ago!)

That's exactly what I was referring to, hence the sad face at the end. You're out of your mind if you think I was making light of that.

Hard to believe Miller has as many as Z, and Cleary and Bert both have more

You beat me to my joke :(

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".
