man I miss Brian Rafalski. He was always ragged on a lot while he was here but he was a great #2 and put up the points...

 

Even Lidstrom missed him during last season. The offense and PP just wasn't the same after he left. White did do a good job during the start of the season but eventually cooled off.

He was awesome against you guys in the Olympics. Kept us in the game until the very end.

I know right? He scored 2 goals in that game IIRC. He was literally one of the top D Man the whole tourny

Eklund reporting this as well so it can't be true. Jennifer Benson is probably one of his "sources".

I heard about a trade for pk to detroit quite a few times over the last week, but obviously that ship sailed. No one ever super credible really mentioned it though, so who knows

Oh yeah you are absolutely right, my bad. :)

 

I was kinda wondering why people were saying 5.75 was a steal didn't realize that was total over the two year span. So yeah, that's a steal.

No truth to that, but we all know he wouldn't give Franzen up for Stamkos even....Holland won't EVER get rid of Franzen.

White needs to come back. If defense is a huge weakness, we can't afford to lose any competent defenders. On the blue line, Kronwall and White would be untouchable. Smith is very close to being untouchable, unless they can land someone his own age but better, and Lashoff should stay to develop. I think Big Rig has a NTC, so we are atuck with him. Buy Cola, Huskins and Kindl are fair game, though Huskins is proving his worth.

On the front end Flip is expendable. He's good, but we can do without him if we get something good in return.

I wouldn't call White untouchable given that he's a UFA at the end of the season. If the Wings are out of the race & a team wants to pick him up for the stretch run or playoffs, flip him for an extra pick or prospect if possible.
