#2664054 HNIC Rumor: Datsyuk to return to Russia

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2016 - 07:58 PM

If Datsyuk leaves after this season his cap hit still counts next season cause he signed after age 35? What a stupid rule. 


If he wants to go to Russia, trade him to a small market team first, then let him retire from nhl hockey. That way his contract helps a small market team get over the cap floor. Also frees up cap space to go all in on stamkos

Why the f*** is Smith being scratched over Ericsson?

Dk got dumped and swung his stick on the ice and tripped the Montreal player, not something that shouldve been called but it did, it happens.

And had abby not pushed the guy, we probably would've gotten a call.
Amen.
I'd trade gus in the offseason.


Goose, Ericsson, pulk, Howard should all be moved. Then go hard after a high end forward and a high end dman. Begin to give dats, hank, and kronwall a lesser role next season. Less minutes, keep them rested for this time of year.

Sadly Holland won't have the balls to do any of it.

Mrazek and Larkin carried this team the first half of the season. Neither has played this much hockey at this level before. It is of no shock they have little left at this point in the season.

Tired kids and old vets are our best players. Neither able to carry the team a full season.

The only positive is that Mrazek and Larkin will be much better next season because of it.

Mrazek has to get back to form tonight. If the team depends on Howard going forward, Holland won't have the guts to move him in the off-season. Meaning more of the same roster next season.

How is it now of our guys know how to check? I'm pretty sure Datysuk would have our biggest hits highlights this season.  :confused:


It's not that they can't, it's that they're too busy getting caught out of position lol.

Stack the pp and have the one unit play the entire 2 minutes.

It's a broken record harping on how terrible the PP is, but one would think things may change? Watching Nyquist force that slap pass to Z summed up the PP for the entire year. Dumb decisions that have almost no chance of working out. 

 

Call up Russo. Then have a lefty AND a righty on each unit, instead of this one man on the point garbage. Dekeyser/Green, Smith/Russo. Then put Kronwall with Green when he is back.

The #RedWings Pavel Datsyuk is on the ice right now during the TV timeout with 8:32 left in the second period.

Pulk is just so terrible. Ugh


Without Helm this team is missing the energy they've had the last couple games due to the 4th line.

No right handers on left side of ice = red wings death.


Broken record much?

Didn't catch the first, how did we look?


Dominated. Hitting posts, rags got a lucky goal. Outside of that, it's the best the team has looked all season.

I get that, but you gotta go in that situation. He's the forward that has to answer the bell when the opponent rings it. Or next game, our guys we dont want hit are gonna have giant bullseyes on them.

Or this kind of nonsense happens. Unwritten rule in hockey that you give the other team a fight after a big hit or when a pending loss is frustrating them. Engage, and you're not going to have any bad blood.


It was a clean hit. The game was on the line. Not fighting was the right call.

The last couple years I had faith they'd pull it out and make the playoffs. This year I feel none of that.

I'm pumped for this one, as I will be there.
