If I could have my way, they (the Sens) would play the absolute best game they're capable of playing, and we'd demolish them on the scoreboard and in the face-punching department. But if I have to choose one of the two forms of "payback," I want the win.

 

And, really, we don't necessarily have a wholle lot to prove by punching faces. If anything, gooning it up would probably make us seem weaker. Everyone knows we don't do it. We just don't. No team has really been able to change that for awhile now. Why give the Sens' the bragging rights there? Maybe we beat them in a fight or two, but, ultimately, they might claim bragging rights. They might say they were the team that broke the Wings' principle, that got them to cave, that really, really got to them. Then we'd probably be cheap-shotted even more, if teams found out they could really get us off our game and help their cause against us. Then maybe a team like Boston starts dressing Shawn Thornton against us.

 

But putting that to the side - Why did Alfie come here? Because he felt he needed more protection on the ice? No. He signed here because he felt he'd have a good shot at the Cup here. So if we really want to make a statement tomorrow, in a game that is absolutely 100% about 1) Alfie and 2) finding out which team really does look like more of a contender, we'd be wise to do our very best to blow these guys away, on the scoreboard. Or on the scoreboard and in the face-punching department. But if only one, the scoreboard.

 

We shouldn't alter our game, our strategy, our philosophy - not for tomorrow's game, at least. Especially with how well we've done the past couple games, without having to face-punch.

 

IMHO

 

Great speech bro.

I still want to see some physical response.  After all, this is hockey, right?

In a perfect world Cowen would get kronwalled and then later he would eat some punches and then after that he would cry over a 9-0 loss

In the news today Kenny Holland has signed Joey Kocur to a one game contract and rumors circulate about voodoo rituals that have taken place in upper Red Wings offices and the surprise announcement of another one game contract will be awarded to a former number 24.

God I miss the bruise brothers Dats would be avenged for sure

I'm so disappointed with Kennys NON response he had 5 freaking days to get some AHL tough guy and he did nothing, I guess the almighty PP should make them pay again? Maybe someone needs to hurt Z and Nyquist too  in order for him to react, so disappointed.

 

Yes, beating them on the scoreboard WOULD be nice but it won't be a statement jsut a win, statements are what the Isles did to the Pens :(

 

Personally I will not be happy, till one of them is out with a concussion (starplayer), maybe Kronner is going to surprise us with kronwalling Karlson or Spezza.

 

Get well soon Pasha, sadly your GM doesn't have the fire to get some people for your protection.

Vengeance is best served cold. I know we are all expecting something to happen to Cowen but I rather beat the sh** out of them on the scoreboard and take a win. 

 

I hope Dats is back soon although we aren't having trouble winning games without him or scoring either :P

Can't we have both?


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

The Wings have absolutely no roster or cap space. You can't just magically sign a tough guy for one game to go after Cowen. While I'm not defending the situation Holland has placed the team under, the circumstances don't lend themselves to getting "tougher" against Ottawa.

"Natural reflex for a defenseman" seems an odd excuse for no suspension.

So, there's a good chance Pavel Datsyuk - one of the very best and most admired and respected and well-liked hockey players on the planet, and one of the current faces of the Detroit Red Wings and Russian hockey - could miss this season's Winter Classic (Detroit), aka The Biggest Hockey Game Ever, and possibly even the Winter Olympics (Russia).

 

Awesome.


Don't Toews me, bro!

In a perfect world Cowen would get kronwalled and then later he would eat some punches and then after that he would cry over a 9-0 loss

in an ultraperfect world, cowen would also require medical attention and his medical bill is then unintentionally sent to NHL's Director of Player Safety (a.k.a. Shanny)

If anybody on here watched the Hockeycentral at Noon show they interviewed Nick Kronwall. When asked about HBO filming and the upcoming days he said something like "we just hope Pavel can get back to his former self"  Take this how you wish, but I say Dats is out for at least another two weeks. After that its  gravy, nobody knows.

 

The fact there was no suspension is a joke (reffing has been for years now) and  thank god we have some easy opponents coming up. Its just what we need....

Well the article says, he will need a week of practicing, which may start tuesday. So if he starts practicing tues/weds. He'll potentially be back by next thursdays game (see the months schedule, where we play TBL x2,PIT,ANA,TOR, arguably our toughest stretch of the season.)

They're resting pavs while we play the nonplayoff contenders. Hoping he'll be ready to go for said stretch against the really good teams.

HOPING im right.
