That Datsyuk line is got g to be very fast, I expect big things from them. Eaves needs to get himself right, I can see why the scratch, I just wish that Babs would sit Cleary for the same reason and have Nyquist up in his place. Speed kills in the NHL and our team lacks it right now.

Wings win 4-3
Hudler with a hat trick and an own goal to win it for the Wings.

 

lol own goal...

 

I hope huds gets 0 points :)

And yet Eaves is still the only bottom 6 player on the team that has a point right, or do we say him & The Todd now given his move to the 3rd line?

I hope Hudler gets one point so as to avoid Eva's eventual heart attack.

 

I'm going to guess 3-2 Wings with Filppula, Tatar, and Franzen getting goals.

I was torn between picking Franzen and Brunner for the third goal.  I think I'm going to say Brunner lets one rip (I mean a shot, not a fart) and then Franzen cleans up the junk

Does this mean the third line is Bertuzzi - Abby - Cleary for tonight? That should be fun.

Excited to see Tatar, however, especially playing with Pavel. Lashoff deserves to be dressed after his previous performances. Kindl is getting close or already there to being a case of he's never going to develop.

 

 

I have said this for years and have said it over and over....he has been given ample opportunity to crack the top 6 D...he can't even do it with all these injuries, he will never do it.  I know I am not the only one to dislike him, but I have said since day one he was a waste of a draft pick. Could have had made a much  better draft pick. Even though a draft is a gamble, but nobody understood why Kindl was taken so high, except that they figured Holland was being Holland and found a diamond...Sorry, but Holland screwed the pooch with Kindl....bye bye Jakub, wish I could say it was nice to know you!


Blah,Blah,Blah....Trade Pav...Blah, Blah...Trade Z...Yadda, Yadda, Blah...

I don't care if Piddler gets 100 goals, I stil am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad he is off this team.  Since there would be no love lost between the two (I cannot expect a Kronwalling (especially since he seems afraid to hit anymore)) but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Tootoo ram Piddler through the boards...Nice to see Eva is still suffering from Piddler love...poor, poor Eva...

Hudler is really looking forward to this one. Seems he is enjoying the extra ice-time so far.

Honestly I didn't know much about Kindl when he was drafted, but I definitely got excited for a puck moving defenseman who is 6'3" 216 lbs and drafted that highly.  I've been pretty hard on him because he shows flashes of getting it together and then fades to the background once again.

 

As a 26 yr old with as many chances as he's had, I don't hold out much hope.

Like who ? Its a late first rounder..look at the draft and tell me who came after Kindl in that first round that was a sure fire blue chip pick?Oshie, Cogliano, Niskanen and Downie are all serviceable guys but none of them are lighting the league on fire.  Rask would've been a nice pick but we weren't looking for goalies at the time.  If Holland could've looked into a crystal ball i'm sure he would've loved to have taken James Neal or Paul Statsny.  He took a chance on a big kid who was supposed to have good puck moving skills..clearly it hasn't worked out the way he hoped but as we've seen with the draft its alot about good scouting and some luck...I think we have had our fair share of both of those with our draft picks.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Excited to see Tatar getting a shot, especially with Datsyuk & Filppula, but I'd rather see Cleary scratched and Eaves in, at least Eaves' shot has the potential to end up somewhere other than the goalie's glove.

Well in hindsight of course but like I said you take the guy who you think will help your team the best and hope it works out.  Go back and read the scouting on  Kindl..he wasn't just a huge risk pick by us..this kid was supposed to be a very good Nhl'er..hasn't worked out that way..questioning our European scouting would be crazy though..didnt hit the jackpot on Kindl. Buffalo took Marek Zagrapan 13th over all that year..he didn't play a game in the NHL..at least Kindl was good enough to get a shot lol

Slight correction: Hudler will use his MMA training & slap a gogoplata on Tootoo.

Finally a game not against Dallas or the Blue Jackets!

 

Looking forward to this phenom line of Pav Flip Tatar Tot. They should burn the Flames. Hopefully. Also glad Ian is back, he is paramount to the D being good, though I think Amazon Kindl has filled in well. The D needs to have an identity and make it work.

 

But really, looking forward to the game tonight. Should be a good one. I’m also relieved Hudler isn’t on the squad anymore, but good for him having some worth on another team, and further makes me like him that he is embracing tonight as a big game. No hard feelings there. Hope he buries a few.


Wings 12 (All Bert)

Flames 2 (All Huds)


Here we go boys, LGW


PS. My brother won tickets via some text contest at lunch?? (The question was: Jiri Hudler returns tonight. Who was the last prior Wing to play for Calgary? D Mac! Easiest question ever!!) Calls me back and tells me they end up being suite tickets!! WTF

I agree the draft is a gamble, and nobodyhas a crystal ball or those guys you listed would have gone top 10, but yes Niskanen and even Vlasic would have been much better picks, they are both over 6' and 200lbs. and are also puck moving defensemen.  Holland just had his boner for Europeans and was never going to take a NA kid.  That is why I am afraid if the Wings get a #17 or #18 pick, that we will see another garbage Euro even if Ryan Pulock is available. If we could find the draft day thread from 2005 somehow, you would see how sour I was when Holland drafted Kindl and he has proven me correct and Holland to be a fool that year. Sure he drafted Abby and Helm that same year, but Abby is what he is and Helm is proving more to be a china doll than what it seemed he would turn into...Not saying Abby or Helm were bad picks, but Kindl was. Holland isn't the drafting genius everyone thinks he is...

 

edit: You say looing back he would have loved to draft James Neal, well guess what, James Neal was is his own backyard in Plymouth so Holland should have been all over him, yet he chose to listen to his omnipotent European scouts.  Well, I sure wish he would stop doing that and start looking locally for talent, he has missed out on so much right in his own state let alone just in North America...BTW Yandle went in the 4th round that draft, again, no crystal ball, but plenty of BETTER talent in NA when that #19 pick came up...what a waste.

 

Holland decide that Ritola would be better than Yandle or even he could have picked up Hjalmarsson in that same round...Holland just isn't the great and powerful, he is more like the man behind the curtain...

I wouldn't say Helm is turning into a china doll. He had one back injury and when he finally recovered he fell onto a skate and lacerated his wrist. His current injury is the same one from before, it just flared up again, that is the thing about back injuries, they never fully heal
