Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

New e-book: The Spanish-American War: A Brief History. Relatively short, introductory read for casual history buffs and people who want to learn more about a forgotten war that changed America. Available at BN.com, Smashwords, Kobo, and Diesel E-Books right now. Same link as above.

I want a forward that would make it really difficult for us to lose a best of 7 series. At the beginning of the year, I was thinking Alfredsson or Doan, but both of their teams are still in the playoff hunt, so I don't see them being moved. But seriously, Doan was such a huge pain in the butt, in these last two playoffs and was making the Coyotes a tough opponent all by himself. I think a player with that type of drive and production at that time of year would go a long way on the Wings.

Morrow would be that player, but he is injured and there hasn't been talked about lately.

Alfi is the perfect fit IMO - but that's not going to happen.

I would be more than happy with big Gaustad for the 3rd line.

Franzen - Dats - Bert
Flip - Zetterberg - Hudler (I don't like him but there is no need to break this line)
Cleary - Gaustad - Eaves/Abdel
Miller - Helm - Homer/Abdel
Lids - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Quincey - Smith/E/Computer/Kindl

The King Howard

Carter is going to be traded to LA within the next few hours. Jack Johnson and a first.

I heard that CBJ themselves narrowed it down to three teams, and one of the reasons for not completing the trade right now is the other teams are making their final offers. Nothing confirmed yet though.

Doesn't his old teammate Richards also play for the Kings?

So now the two party animals get back together, and in LA of all places, a city full of pornstars and strippers. :lol:

Detroit is reportedly looking at Samuelsson and Moen, per Bob Duff via Twitter.

STOP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't want to hear about Moen anymore. I will punch a hole in the wall if we foolishly bring Sam back.

I would MUCH rather we go after Brown.
"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.

Are you talking about Dustin Brown?

I think the Wings need a higher scoring forward going into the playoffs. Z, Fil, and Franz do not have many shots on goal... though Z made and created many opportunities as he always does. We can use the help guys. The Canucks whom I highly dislike are going to be there as well as the Shark, Blues, and Hawks. We need more fire power up front.

I freaking love Grabovski! I mentioned him a few times and think he'd be great with Dats or Hank and even man the 3rd need be. Stanny Bowman is after him I heard...

LA's not going to trade Brown to Detroit. They might play each other in the first round.
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.

I wouldn't be fast to dismiss trading Stuart. If you watched the game tonight Stuart wasn't on the ice with Kronwall every shift. More than a couple shifts I saw Quincey out there with White and Kronwall with Lidstrom. Just saying...

Edit: To my knowledge not all of them were PP or PK shifts, though I suppose I could be wrong.
