Yes they should. Though after all the Homer goals that have been called back and all the times guys f*** with our goalie and score, I'll take this one as sweet redemption for a team that's been slaughtered over the years in goals called off.
Rule change for next year for sure now that ONE has gone the Wings way.
Thats the Howard I miss, I used to love it when he would beat up on players crashing the net. For awhile it looked the Wings brass neutered him, but the old Jimmy is back. Hope he keeps it up. It's nice seeing someone on the Wings show some emotion.
Aren't you always advocating that the Wings don't need physical play?
How Sproul is doing?
Good but not quite as far along as Ouellet. Ouellet has his complete game down. Sproul has nasty offence, but needs to clean up his D zone coverage a little and he'll be lethal. HUGE shot from the blue line though and we need that asap.
Rafalski check: 3GP.....3 Shots....0+/-
Assessment: Already better than Quincey.
Rafalski = too old and small for NHL.
Ouellet = perfect fit to take Quincey or Kindl's spot next year, if we can trade Kindl.
Nope, I'm always advocating that the Wings don't need goons. Wisniewski is a super good hockey player in addition to being tough. I also have no problem with a guy standing up to protect Howard when he's getting crashed. That's protection. A whole different thing than the supposed "tough guys deter dirty play" argument, which is wrong...and stupid.
I wish I could "like" this more than once.
It may be time to watch Slapshot again. I wish we had Dr. Hook and Ogie Oglethorp for this game. Set Quick straight pretty quick at centre it would.
Kindl for McQuaid
4th for Mark Stuart
Andersson and 2nd for Ott
Z - Dats - Bert
Alf - Weiss? - Franzen?
Tatar - Ott - Nyquist
Abdelkader - Helm/Glendening - Tootoo
Kronwall - E
DeKe - McQuaid
Smith - Stuart
Cleary, Quincey and Sammy press box
McQuaid is better than Kindl and Stuart is worth more than a 4th, very least a 2nd or a 3rd with a prospect. He's a very good defensive Dman that blocks shots like an animal. Good choices of guys to go after with those 2 though. I'm not a fan of Ott though.
