People talking about wanting Bertuzzi in his prime might not want to read this.

Todd Bertuzzi was drafted 23rd overall in the 1993 Entry Draft by the New York Islanders. Guess which team held the #22 pick? That's right, the Detroit Red Wings. And who did they select with that 22nd pick? Anders Eriksson!

Talk about a missed opportunity...

Eriksson won us the Cup in 98.  How many Cups has Bertuzzi won for us?  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What are you talking about? Eriksson had 5 points in the '98 run, and they were all assists. Marty LaPointe had the Cup winning goal that year.

I believe the point GMR was trying to make by saying Ericsson won us the cup was that Ericsson was on the team that won the cup.  So far, we have yet to win a cup with Bertuzzi on the team.

 

Obviously he doesn't mean we won because of the sole effort of Ericsson.  This is too funny though, to read peoples reactions to that.

 

EDIT: I have always wanted to see Mats Sundin or Markus Naslund wearing a Wings jersey.

A player named Marian Hossa who played like he gave a *** during the playoffs.

The list is heavily skewed towards guys I've wanted in the last few years.  I'm sure there's many more. 

 

Pavel Bure

Jamal Mayers

Teemu Selanne

Martin Brodeur - largely because I got sick of the goalie carousel in Detroit, though I've liked him less over the years. But he's a great goalie and a workhorse.  

Chris Pronger

 

You heard me.  Chris mother f-in Pronger.  A top pairing of Lidstrom and Pronger?  Who wouldn't want that?
