Ericsson out One Month

Rate this topic

I think you misunderstood what I meant. Do I like that he fractured his wrist? Of course not. Will I miss him on the ice? Not at all, and that's what I meant. He makes me facepalm on a regular basis like nobody has since '05-'08 Lilja.

You may not miss him, but the Wings will. Unless Kindl or Commie make a marked improvement in his absence, the Wings just got worse defensively.

It seems like you'd want the best lineup on the ice.

Ericsson also was 4th on the team in PK minutes (tied with Lids). In his absence that means those pk minutes will be picked up by Lidstrom, Stuart, Kronwall, and now Quincey.

Like I said, picking up Quincey now becomes a good move as he can pick up some of those minutes without them having to go to Commie and Kindl.

Sucks Ericsson is hurt, but it might help in the long run to give Kindl, Commodore and maybe even Smith minutes heading into the stretch.

I like Commie, but i rather Kindl play Orr like hockey while Ericsson's injured, so that when he's healthy Biggie but smalls ain't needed no more. Wings then get the luxury of trading away Big Rig to the all you can eat Florida Panthers, gaining a healthy chunk of salary cap space, along with having all star calibre J. Kindl's outta all of this. Repeat for 2013. I have a funny feeling though this might not happen, so get well soon there Big Rig :battle:

Are people more in favor of Kindl or Commodore?

Commodore.

And, since Ericsson doesn't want to fight/stick up for teammates, maybe he will.

I'll take Smith instead

Me as well. Babcock said he wanted to get him some more NHL time before seasons end. Now is the perfect opportunity. I'm excited to see him play for the wings.

Kindl.

His play of late means he's above Commodore. He played in 8 straight IIRC prior to Quincey arriving.

I find it quite amusing that we have so many experts on this forum that think they are so much better at evaluating talent and player potential than either Holland or Babcock. If Ericsson was as bad as some of you idiots say he wouldn't be playing for most teams and yet one of the best teams in the league can't seem to find enough short comings in his game to sit his ass on the bench.

Duh! The purpose of this forum is only to agree with Holland and Babcock. Any independent thought is highly discouraged.

There goes our chance at a Stanley Cup.

I think it helps our chances to win. I have a hard time watching Error-son making mistake after mistake

I think it's great that we have so many Smith lovers out there. When he does get called up, I hope to hell he plays flawlessly because I hate to see the love quickly transform to hate.

With Hudler playing well, he's the scapegoat this season. At least people have stopped trying to argue that Kindl is clearly better than Ericsson but for some odd reason Holland Babcock keep playing E over him in the lineup.

It's grass is always greener. Hopefully people won't turn on Smith. The kid's got the potential to be a very good dman for Detroit, but he takes a fair amount of risks. There's going to be growing pains as he adapts to the game at this speed.

Time will tell, I suppose.
