well big question is if and i know his going to San Jose but IF Scott Gomez showed any intrest in us do you think he would have been helpful or just another waste of space like Sammy?

 

One calendar year without scoring.

 

An entire 365 day period without scoring a single goal while making $7 million per year. And thats without any major injury or lockout, and with several games being a healthy scratch.

I don't know about that. Gomez has some valuable experience and a good veteran presence.

Sorry just some sarcasm. I just know how much Dabura loves 30+ year old, small players without a team.

This team does need youth and/or quality players not some guys, looking for whatever job is left..

 

If things aren't better after 10 games Holland has to try to get a number 1 defenceman for this team it that doesn't work, just call it a season and enjoy a very good pick since forever :-)

The point is moot anyway. He's signed with San Jose for less than $1 million.

Guys, arguing in an internet forum is tantamount to arguing over whose mother packed them a better boxed lunch in 3rd grade. Let's keep it together here.

Agreed. Lot of new faces, lot of changes, give them time to get it together a little bit. Especially considering there was no preseason, a shortened training camp, there's a handful of teams in the same situation right now that will find themselves in the playoffs. Look at the standings right now and tell me it's not complete chaos.

I'd feel a lot better if this roster were really great on paper, as that would make our performances thus far truly WTF-ish. As it is, though, you tend to get what you ice, and, IMHO, we're icing a very shaky roster. So, it's not that surprising that we suck.

 

But, alas, all we can do is wait and see how things unfold. Hear's to that, I guess.

At least we're not Philly. And we're only a point out of a playoff spot. Los Angeles, Vancouver and Washington both have worse GA/g too, lots of teams not clicking early. I don't think we can definitely say how good one team is to another, let's give it a couple weeks, unless we just play terrible every game until then.

 

Do need to get our offense going, I don't think it's going to take too long we've been getting chances. Just have to change up the lines a little bit. I liked seeing Flip on the wing with Datsyuk. Wouldn't mind seeing Brunner-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi, Filpulla-Datsyuk-Franzen next game, we have to get that second line creating chances, Bertuzzi has enough skill and is pretty good in the corners, he should fit right in with Brunner nand Z. Filpulla/Datsyuk can dig in the corners and Franzen should be able to trip and fall in front of goalie at some point.

Drew Sharp sucks but this is funny....."How about having a Kyle Quincey Night? The Wings can pick one fan who would replace the struggling defenseman for that game."

  Its true, I knew when I came here today there would be a lot of this...but GOMEZ?!  As long as we can get a somewhat healthy roster for a few games and drills they will be a good team.  Will they take to long?  time will tell I guess

well i was right with the prediction but wrong with the score.

i was off by two goals.

 

i really feel the defensive pairings need to be mixed up.

maybe even the offensive pairings too. 

 

but nothing needs more work then the Powerplay. 0/15? thats just inexcusable. i know its 3 games in but still.
