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 doubt it. He's no #1 Center, but he is a solid #2....except that he lost his mojo in Detroit this last season. I'm not sure why. He went over to Finland and played for Jokerit with his brother, and did great....and then came back to the Wings with everyone else, and sucked it up. That kind of drop off, considering the rest of his career and his age.....equates to some kind of attitude issue. Okay, he's got his change of scenery now. I think he'll be back to his old self next season...which is still a slight overpayment lol.
