Brad Stuart

 

The guy was a key piece of the 2008 Cup win. 

 

 

And of the Pens 2009 Cup run.  If I ever see Brad Stuart anywhere, I'll do this.......

I think we really lost a great player when it came to Lapointe.  I know the Wings weren't matching that Ludacris contract Boston gave him, but he was being groomed to be the next Captain.  Pound for Pound (thanks Mick!) he was the toughest little son of a B in the league.  He backed down from nobody.  He also could shoot the puck.  We miss players like Marty.  He may not of been my favorite, but he was missed.

 

I liked Lapointe.  Good checker, great in the playoffs, cool goatee and the ladies loved him.

 

Then he went to Boston and robbed them of lots of money.

Yes, yes, I know.  The Wings lost the Cup because of Stuart.  Or was it because of not suspending Malkin?  I can never remember which.  It surely couldn't have been that they got outplayed by a hungrier team. 

 

By pinning the Cup loss on Stuart, you're kinda making my point.  He's definitely an underappreciated Wings player.

Exactly. People remember the two mistakes Stuart made in Game 7, but not how many shots he blocked that playoff run or 2008 on the PK, let alone all of his years in Detroit. Or how not a single Wings d-man besides maybe E has come close to matching Stuart's PK ability since then.

Physical, sound defensively and the ideal partner to complement Kronwall. Kronner really was able to contribute at a higher level offensively and play more aggressively with Stuart there to cover for him.

It was the perfect deadline acquisition to put the 2008 team over the top. I know there isn't much positive history for comparison, but for me that is easily Holland's best trade since the lockout.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Mathieu Dandenault.  Guy could go both ways and was a decent role player.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
