Haha, all this bitching about Smith. Does anyone remember Kronwalls play from 05-07? He was a turnover machine, and made dumb decisions with the puck. But he grew, and then established himself a solid #3 in 07-08, and the rest is history. How about Ericsson? He was dreadful for 2 and half seasons, and now he's our shut down defenseman #2/3. Defenseman take longer to develop, Smith is learning at the best time of the year, the playoffs. He's gonna be fine.
That's why I chose my username. When I joined, people were bashing him and wanting him gone. He was no good and made of glass.
I believed in him. Granted, I believed in him more than I believe in Smith, but I don't think we should be punching Smith a one-way ticket out either.
Money on the board! Current total: $2
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
