I don't care what anyone says, but I love David Backes. I would love to have him on the Wings. I would also love to see him beaten mercilessly in every facet of his game tonight. So there.

Good to have Helm back, hopefully we play up to the competition as we tend to do and rage out a W tonight.

LGW!

Who is the power forward you speak of? I much to my shame dont follow the Blues/ know their players to watch for.

 

Backes the guy is sadly the definition of a big beast. Would love to have him on the Wings but watching our players against him is not something I'm looking forward to today.

Backes is a monster, and I agree that he is among the league elite power forwards, if not the best. I'd flip from excitement if he ever landed here but I see him as being a career Blue.

He does it all, offensive thread, physical presence, and will drop the gloves with anyone.

We should kidnap him and force him to play for the Wings. Throw him out there in a Shanahan jersey.

"Isn't that David Backes?"

"No, it's Brendan Shanahan."

"But I just saw Shanny back the--"

"IT'S BRENDAN SHANAHAN."

I don't think he will be a career Blues player, he knows his value is only going to rise so will the salary cap if someone offers 7,5 for 8 years I doubt Armstrong matches that.

 

 Lidstrom should just phone him and get him to sign with the Wings *g*

Hopefully I get to see this game.  Our crappy ass cable company (buckeye) once again f***ed up, and now somehow almost all of the channels are blacked out.  Hope they get this s*** sorted out before puck drop...

against the best team in the West (I don't think the Hawks would beat the Blues in 7 games).


Cant be the best team in the West when they are 1-7 against the California teams.

Tough game for the Wings. My heaf says 3-1 Blues but Im hoping for 2-0 Wings. In my seat waiting for puck drop.

So wait, im not positive about this but if i recall correctly, the game after Babs calls out the injured players "millions of dollars that never play" and Helmer is back on the ice.

Seems like Helm took it to heart, sacked up, and came to play. Gotta give props.

If we have a good first period we will be okay.
