Wings sure are banged up. Better now, get it over with before the playoffs, I guess. Get well quick, guys!

Isn't it about this time every year where the team turns into the Detroit Griffins.

Lol. Almost just posted that myself. I wasn't a big Commodore fan but I'm not sure why (unless you think Janik is better) that you trade defensive depth right before the playoffs.

Meh, I'd rather have Kindl, Smith, and Janik all in ahead of Commie.

As long as JMac stays healthy we should be fine. Zetterberg and Filppula can't do everything by themselves offensively. The team needs to step up now more than ever.

We might have the toughest team we've dressed in years.

This might seriously hurt our playoff seeding (I still don't know if that matters or not), but we should be OK long term. I don't think Lidstrom or Ericsson are diagnosed as being out a long time.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Why the hell wont Holland call up Nyquist? Put him with Franzen and Bertuzzi - put skill with skill. Hes no Pavel - but hes no slouch either. This "over-ripe" philosophy is growing tiresome ... hes one of Detroits top notch prospects - not some mid round "lets hope he can mature with a few years on the farm guys". LEts not kid ourselves - Pav and Hank got the chance to play on great teams out of the gate and got to play with seasoned veteran winners that still had skill. A small quickguy with hands and brains feeding the puck to Mule or Bert - is it really that much different than Pavel setting up Hull? Bring up some skill and give them a chance for a top 6 spot while we have injuries.

In an effort to destroy the season, as well as undermine his own job security, Ken Holland decided to move Commie because he knew that we were going to have three defensemen get injured a week after the trade.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Haha, well I wasn't calling out Kenny for trading him, more of a "just our luck that this would happen" sort of thing. It's just a bummer since Kenny kind of was doing Commie a favour by trading him somewhere where he would get playing time like he desired and now, one week later, it would've been nice to have him around.

Man the injuries are piling up. At least we have some likeable and dependable call up guys. Love Conner and Janik :thumbup:

However, the line-up is getting thin

Filppula-Zetterberg-Hudler
Miller-Abdelkader-Cleary
Connor-Helm-Franzen
Mursak-Emmerton-Holmstrom

Kronwall-Stuart
White-Quincey
Janik-Smith

Don't we usually do this in February? Wow, first they show up for games in the third period, then they show up for injuries a month late.

If it means we'll be in the playoffs a month later than the last couple of years, I'm all for it, but I'm not sure that will translate.

I think it must be because of the mild winter, the same way flu season started late this year.
