#2433235 Who do we Unload, reload on before the season starts?

Posted by Mikeal on 14 August 2013 - 06:46 AM

Bertuzzi and Samuelsson were signed for their size and because the team didn't think Tatar and Nyquist were ready. They weren't. If a vet had played like either of them then most people would be screaming for blood. Hell Brunner was better than either of them but people still complained about him. BTW, I love how hypocritical typical Detroit fan is about signing players. Bertuzzi is too old. Get Jagr instead. Samuelsson was hurt a lot one year he's injury prone. Lecavalier missed 20% of his games the last 3 years they should sign him to a multi-year contract.

 

When Bert is playing I think it really changes the team.  People really under rate his creativity and playmaking.  I'm not sure what Sammy will bring if he is healthy this year.  Doesn't sound like he is doing that well from what I've been reading.

Just drove 6 1/2 hours to go to this game.  Hopefully a good one.

#2344457 Jordin Tootoo: Usage? (6:57 TOI vs. Columbus)

Posted by Mikeal on 22 January 2013 - 12:20 PM

I thought Tootoo was one of our better players yesterday.  He had a couple of good shots, was active on the forecheck, and didn't make any big mistakes.

I bet Samuelsson shot the puck that hit him...

I agree huds should be shooting a ton more, but generally, I think most our shots are low percentage chances. We need more side to side movement on the goalie.

Either way if it was 100% about the money he could have got way more than 6.7 from another team.

I'm heading to Minnesota for the Sunday game. Xcel looks like a nice stadium.

Calling this a Troll is BS. Kopecky has been very good this year and this playoff. I think we have been spoiled so long in Detroit we don't even appreciate some people.


#1917710 Ericsson back in lineup, Howard to start vs Edmonton

Posted by Mikeal on 17 March 2010 - 05:08 PM

He needs to get some games in. If we play a physical team (assuming we make the playoffs) we will want him in the lineup.
