No Zetterberg, no Helm, no Weiss, no Franzen, no Abdelkader.  Emmerton in GR, Tootoo in GR.......and he still can't crack the line-up.

 

Have we finally seen the last of #37?  I wonder if this is Kenny's way of putting pressure on him - now will you waive your NMC so we can do a salary dump trade?

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

If he dropped his NMC, and Cleary followed him, it would be GREAT!

Why should he do that? The guy is getting paid and I'm sure is already flirting with retirement at the end of the year, so even if he doesn't play it changes nothing for him. Hate to say it, but Kennys hands are tied here :( if he doesn't waive nobody can force him to.

However negotiated his contract is a genius.

If he wore a disguise, he might be able to play at Commerica Park.

No.  We will need Sammy when the GR kids are added to the LTIR group.

He has a ntc not a nmc. Also I font see any team wanting to spend 3mil and a scrub that is a healthy scratch most games unless we really sweeten the pot

He'll be back next season as a "power play specialist."
 

"We feel like last season was one of those seasons where nothing seems to go right for anyone," Holland said, referring to, among other things, the Wings' borderline comical injury woes. "Was Sammy one of our best players? Probably not. But I think you could say that even Datsyuk wasn't really himself, for whatever reasons."

 

"I just don't know that it's fair to single out one or two players. When a team with as much talent as ours misses the playoffs, I call that a team effort. No one was really getting it done in the second half, after Sochi. We're not going to scapegoat anyone for that."

 

You know it's gonna happen. Don't even try to deny it.

Per Ansar for tonight's game:

 

 

Second power play unit has Tatar, Cleary, Eaves up front, Kindl and Samuelsson at points.

 

A powerplay unit with both Cleary and Sammy on it. This is YOUR fault.

Things are actually going exactly as they should. The vets get the nod until they play themselves out of a roster spot. Sammy and Cleary are doing just that, playing themselves off the roster and, like Nyquist, one of these kids is going to earn their spot.

He knows the system. He's had success here in the past. You can never have enough veterans in the locker room....

 

Do I need to go on?
