An earth-shattering observation: both of Datsyuk's goals - the Buffalo one and tonight's - were backhand bullets from roundabout the hash marks.

 

Also, I LOVED our first line tonight. LOVED. Keep Bertuzzi there forever plz kthx.

 

Its bizarre that for a guy whose (forehand) wrist shot is so average, that his backhand is probably the best in the NHL.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

His forehand shot is well above average also.

Yes his shortcomings were everyone else's fault except his.

Its simple.  If you can't play defense, you can't play.  He was a liability on the ice, and I fully expected and agreed with Babs benching him after that performance.  His turnovers weren't the result of playing on the fourth line.  Nor were they the result of him only playing a few minutes.  Nor were they a result of the rest of the team playing poorly.  His decisions with the puck and without the puck were entirely his to make, and for the most part, they were clumsy, ill-timed, poor decisions that didn't produce anything productive for the team, and often ended up with puck on an opponent's stick.

  Bret Hull and Gretzky both  had pretty good careers and neither one played a stick of defense. :lol:

Bert played a hell of a game and really opened up the ice for Z and Pav. Glendening looks like a minor improvement over Emdog but an improvement none the less. Lashoff>Smith. Tootoo gets a spot just for the death stare. I thought the 2nd line still sucked. Its time Holland put out some feelers to see what Mule would fetch in a trade. Put Mule in the press box next game if he doesn't get the message then trade his ass(no pun intended). Never break up the PavZuzzi line.

His forehand shot is well above average also.

Dats also took a slapshot during the game which was pretty unusual for him.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

It was one game, cross your fingers there are more to come.

If tootoo is scratched for the next meeting, i will be upset.

Agreed, I love when they have Toots in the lineup. Gives them an extra dimension in my opinion. Makes the other team watch their backs when he's on the ice, and he scares the crap out of them as you can see from that gif. He may rarely score any goals but he brings a boatload of energy and can lay the smackdown when needed.

Franzen + Smith (+ something?) for a top defenseman. I'm sure Smith will be the best defenseman ever one day, but I don't want to wait. FOR OUR LIVES TO BE OVER

 

Also, +1 ogreslayer.

Even if he just draws penalties, that alone is pretty big. (Assuming our power play can keep it up and become "our enforcer" like it was back in the day.)

 

What I didn't like about the Newbury slash was that Tootoo's hit was clean. Now, granted, maybe it's a little late in a 5-2 game for a big hit. But you don't slash the guy like that. Very bush league.


Don't Toews me, bro!

We could trade him to a team that has no interest whatsoever in playing defense...like Edmonton.  They'd get another defenseman (in name only) and all we'd ask for in return is Sam Gagner's missing teeth from the Kassian high stick.  In the blink of an eye Edmonton would start winning their 6-5 debacles like last night, and we'd plant our Gagner teeth into the muddy banks of the Detroit River and, like a bean stalk, watch them grow and grow and grow.

 

RIP Gagner's teeth.  You will be missed.
