Where would we be without Filppula this year? From Game #1, he's been our best forward. Since Datsyuk got it in gear he's been #2. Our only untouchable forwards IMO are Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Hudler.


Fixed.

LOL

I hope Ed Olczyk dies in an AIDS fire.

This piece of s*** shouldn't be allowed to commentate Blackhawks games on this channel. I feel sorry for anyone who had to listen to his garbage tonight.

We're the fans booing there? If so, that'sf****** disgraceful to boo an injured player regardless of the team.


Ericsson should skate over to Tayes, and randomly punch him in the face.

Guys, we have a player on our team who paralyzed a guy once.

What do want Holland to do, sign a polar bear?

Exactly who was theirs in 2008? Running from hockeyfights.com...

Downey? Won 7 of 10, but several in close decisions. Lilja? Three, all draws. Drake? Lost 3 of five. McCarty? Zero fighting majors.


That's much tougher than the current team.

It's not necessarily about how many fights those guys had or won, but about setting a tempo all year for physical play and hitting. Come playoff time, the entire team was more hard working and physical because of the mindset those guys brought all year. Downey didn't play in the playoffs, but he toughened our "soft euros" up for the playoffs, and McCarty took over that role in the postseason.

:g:

We should start a thread about how Holland should sign a tough guy.

Good thing nobody has ever said that here. :hehe:

Turn the game on and it's 3-0 Steckel just scores. Game over with all this attention? Especially in Canada. No wonder most Canadian fans think we are a joke.


The Wings have won 4 Cups since a Canadian team last won one.

Their teams are af****** joke.

And so is their beer!

Corey Perry would help us right now.

Didn't Perry win the Hart Trophy last year?

How many of those will Franzen win anytime soon?

The first available big North American boy who fights.

I don't buy that. This has everything to do with losing. Not to mention, you guys hate Americans and we know it. I mean, I know ya'll are still mad about Russia winning last year, so that didn't help, but it comes back full circle to being all about losing.



Sounds like a sore loser to me.


Pretty much.

Canadians are upset because a 19 year old kid is excited that he scored goals against them in a big game? They were also upset that the Russians were celebrating during their 3 goal comeback in last year's Gold Medal game. :rolleyes: How dare they celebrate?

I'm just happy the other countries are getting better at this tournament. It's not just Canada winning every year now.

39-4 the shots are.

Crazy.


Wings fans know how problematic outshooting the other team can be if you don't score.

Wow, sounds like a current forward on this team minus the physical presence and far more offensive upside Getzlaf provides.


Pretty much.

As others have pointed out, what is Franzen's upside for the future? He's already over 30 and has a history of injuries and laziness.

I know he's great in the playoffs, but I no longer think he's untradeable.


#2241545 Filppula is "too nice".

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2012 - 01:05 PM

I'm wondering what gcom and Drake have to say about Filppula this year versus what they've said in the past. He's on pace for a 70 point season, like I've always said he's capable of, with no signs of slowing down. And he's been outscoring Franzen too lately, who plays with Datsyuk.


I'm interested in what you have to say about Hudler.
