I have always loved him. Great for him and the team that he's scoring some goals. 

Love his speed, size and grit. 

I also think the kid is pretty skilled....

Loved it.  From the reaction of the crowd, you would have thought this was a Detroit home game. :lol:

Very impressed with how Abby has played as of late! He's been contributing beyond expectations.

Yeah I have no idea where this guy's offense is coming from, but I hope he keeps it up.  I'll readily admit that I never liked him, and have given him tons of s*** over the years.  So this is definitely egg on my face.  But I'll gladly be wrong when it comes to something like this.  Dare I say...he plays like a...power forward?

He has Anaheim's number. If he plays like that against all teams, he's irreplaceable. Gritty.

Who knows, if we're lucky he'll be a Clarkson type who didn't develop his offensive game until a little later.  Either way, I'm not complaining.

The thing I like about his play right now is that he's shooting from everywhere all the time.  He's got confidence coming out of his ears.

This is what I was upset about. Didnt seem lkke he had progressed at all since year 1. Now it looks like he's becoming legit.

Abby has turned into the type of guy that completes an elite team.

 

He is the type of depth guy you absolutely need in order to be a contender. If we can add an elite scorer and move Abby back to the 3rd line (where he still belongs), then watch out. Having Helm and Abby on a 3rd line and adding in Tatar....nice.

Agreed. If we could mortgage the farm for Stamkos, I'd give it a thought.

Hank-Dats-Stamkos
Franzen-Filppula-Nyquist
Brunner-Helm-Abdelkader
Andersson-Emmerton-Tatar

Kronwall-Ericsson
Smith-DeKeyser
Kindl-Lashoff

Colo, Sproul, Frk, Nesrosil, and 4 first rounders for Stamkos.

Horton in UFA.

Dump Bertuzzi and Samuelsson with buyouts.

Let go of Cleary, White, Eaves, Miller, etc.

This is mortgaging the farm?......a bunch of unproven players and a scrub for another team's still young superstar.  I'm sure Yzerman will be all over that.

I couldn't stand him, and his stupid penalties last year.

 

I thought someone was crazy when they moved him up with Pav.

 

Glad he has found some offense, and is playing so well. Glad i was wrong about him all along.

Made my first jersey purchase a few years back and debated for weeks on end between Helm and Abby. Now I wish I would've gotten the Abdelkader. Not only are there more letters for the same amount of money, but dude's been lights out lately! Stud! Keep it up Abby. (And get well soon Helm, not to dog you). Very glad that Abby has formed into a critical role when the team needed someone like him to step up most.
