Why isn't Filppula in your spreadsheet, and why is Cleary? Seems to me you handpicked the forwards that fit your agenda and left off the ones who didn't. (Parise/Hudler)

Flip could easily shoulder part of Datsyuk and Zetterberg's loads as they get older, as can guys like Nyquist or Parise if we are lucky enough to land him. Then you have a ton of prospects with potential and good depth guys who haven't been given a shot with the Wings yet, all of which can transition into the line-up in the same way D and Z did.

Also their names are Datsyuk, not Datsyk, and Fedorov not Federov.



Filppula is on the rise. No doubt about it. But 1 can not over come the decline in 5. The other thing with Filppula is he is about our only trade piece. Also a UFA next season. So we need to either move or resign. Either way works for me.

Then don't read and post on it. Pretty simple.



I provid proof with real actual numbers and you talk about some % that is tied to what exactly? Some fantasy league % doesn't win games. Goals do. Either by scoring them or preventing them. Thought you would know that.


LOL its called scoring percentage dude (pretty sure i said that in my original post....its reading not fantasy haha). Percentage of points scored per games played. Example: 80 pts in 80 games played would be 100% and 40 pts in 80 games played would be 50%......LOL did u really think i was just pulling random numbers out of a hat?????

Next ur gonna post a thread about how we dont have a good farm and Suter is only famous for his name Posted Image

The OP is, very unsurprisingly, already at -116 after just two weeks here.

Wow, it looks like a whole bunch of statistical white noise. Are you trying to point out a trend?

Good post Richdg. I wouldn't worry about all the neggs you get on the comments. Since I've been here, I have noticed many a Wing fan either incapable or unwilling to face the fact that it will soon be time to rebuild and that we aren't a dynasty anymore. Sadly, even when you give them the facts and throw the numbers in their faces, you still wont get them to be realistic about it. Of course we all want to see Detroit be a dominant force in the league and compete for cups year after year. But when you look at the facts and look at the numbers, it's not there and it's easy to see the decline. Thanks for the reality check.

I'm not optimistic Red Wings are going to land Parise. I do think we have a very solid prospect pool... so I'm not worried. I was more disappointed with Howard and the bottom 6 against Nashville than I was with the top 6 in the playoffs. Not having Helm was a huge loss. Abdelkader is on my s*** list... I expected more out of him.

Edit to add:

Cleary gets a break because he played on one knee. Next year he will be much better.

Abdelkader is of very limited use at center. He's good as a winger.

I wonder why you and others like you, who view disagreement with their catastrophic theories as resulting from stupidity, blindness or self-delusion, even bother to visit DISCUSSION forums. If you want your words to be read and not disagreed with, then go write a blog.

Couldn't agree more. He's always been far more effective on the wing, imo.
