That being said, signing Alfie and Weiss clearly bumps him out of the top 6 in Detroit this year ... but why not sign here and prove you belong in the top 6 next year.

 

Why?

 

Zetterberg Datsyuk Alfredson

Brunner Weiss Franzen


Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Brunner Weiss Franzen

 

At crunch time last season, he was on the 3rd line ... add Alfie and Weiss and it's not too difficult to figure out.

I agree, I think he still would be a top 6 and we can still have my dream 3rd line of Helm Nyquist and Tater...aka the fastest hardest working line in the league.

As big a defender as I am of the Wings brass .... I would lose it if they resigned Cleary.

I wonder if he feels like he broke up with his ex-girlfriend, and then she moved on really quick... and now he's just sitting there like, "I think I messed up."

I'm sure Filppula is heartbroken at getting to play with real scorers like St. Louis and Stamkos.

 

:rolleyes:

Even with those guys they might be the NHL's worst team this coming year.

Like he'll see more than 5 seconds of line change time on the ice with Stamkos....he's not a top line player on any team in this league.

Do they have a top line center right now?

 

Besides, there's things called injuries and powerplays.  He'll get some time with those players this season.  It'll be relief, after playing with dead weight like Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen over the years.  And yes, Filppula was often the problem on those lines as well.

You think they'd pay him 5 million and not play him on the powerplay with their best players?

 

Especially since they're severely lacking in forward talent right now.

I'm sure he'll light up the scoreboard playing 3-5 minutes a game against everyone's top PK line.

Stop ripping Flippula. I will bet ANYONE $20 Flipulla has a career year next season. Anyone can be a #1 center, the only thing that matters is chemistry with line mates.

Keep telling yourself that.....you'll be a #1 center someday too. So you're saying talent means nothing, as long as you get along with your teammates?

 Your on some good drugs then, cuz they couldn't make the playoffs with Stamkos, Vinnie, and MSL. Fil won't change their team, I'd take any of Detroit's lines over any of Tampa's lines any day, and that includes a line with Cleary and Sammy, Tampa has One great player and a few good role players, that's it. People here just give Tampa credit because of Yzerman, Tampa is not that good. Fil can leave and be merry in Florida, he ain't gonna do sh#t there. I bet you  $100 bucks the Wings shut him down every time we play them this year. Now that's a bet.

I don't think anyone is in a position to say if a change of scenery will make Flip a better player or not.  Chemistry is just as important as talent.  I wouldn't be surprised one way or the other.  If I was a betting man though, I would say that Flip doesn't do well in Tampa Bay.
