Don't know what's wrong with Commodore, personally.

Apart from Babcock of course. Kindl's done nothing to take the regular 3rd pairing spot. *insert angry rant etc. cba*

I really, REALLY, really hope this ends all the let's add a defenseman talk. I truly believe our options are so few and the prices are so high, we can't be involved in the deadline this year. We need to let the farm grow, and the youngsters on the roster prove themselves. Free agency the next two years has too much potential and too much on the line to risk our own adding pieces now.

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.

I agree, I am all for.....:lol: J/K

But ya, I really didn't think we NEEDED a d-man, but I really think we need Selanne for the spring...

I have a feeling our D-man "acquisition" for the playoffs will be Smith. Guaranteed he'll be a Black Ace & I think the chances are pretty good he'll see some time in the line-up over Kindl or Commie.

QFT. I think he'll add a body up front too.

I think Smith is going to have a break-out playoff run, like Helm, Abdelkader and Ericsson did when they first came up. We've got 6 NHL-ready defensemen, 7 if you count Kindl, and 8 if you count Smith because he looked pretty good when he was called up. Hopefully we don't need a depth defenseman. But I do expect Holland to make a move for a forward.

I hope Kenny calls Smith up down the stretch and if he plays well, he can pair with Ericsson on the 3rd pair. Other than Allen, I don't see any available dman worth pursuing right now.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

Just because they have defensive depth doesn't mean they can't make an upgrade. Kubina would've been an upgrade over Kindl and Commodore.

That's like saying, "They have 14 forwards, why do they even need to make a trade?!"
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

TRUE!

I do believe they have pretty good D depth, but Kubina is a power play specialist that would have been an upgrade over Hudler on the point, that is the only reason I was a bit excited. But I do believe the roster limits are removed after the trade deadline and if so, I hope Smith comes up an gets some playing time so we can see if he will be ready next year or not...

I really wish Holland could get Selanne. I know the Ducks are trying their hardest to make the playoffs and he is a huge part of their chances, so he may not even be available. But the Wings need a player to turn that power play around which in turn should make that road record start to look better!
