Wings won't lose another game this series.


Unless they play Phoenix.


#1941385 Worst Hockey Preview Ever?

So basically what it all comes down to is whoever scores the most goals wins.


You just blew my f***in' mind.

Nashville got killed 5-2 so we're tied with one game up on them. Awesome.

Before Babs decided to shut Ozzie down forever he had fantastic games against Calgary, Boston and San Jose, he looked like he was getting back into his groove. Since then he has 1 win and hasnt started a game at home since November 27th (Why is that relevant? He's 2-6-2 on the road with a 3.71 GAA and .868 sv%..). He finally had a good period in the 3rd today, but wont see action again this year. Honestly, if this is how Babcock is going to manage goalies, then no Osgood cant come back next year.


Right, in his first year in the league this year, Babcock has really shown that he has no idea how to handle two potential starter goalies.

#1929242 Hudler done with dynamo

Posted by Z and D for the C on 31 March 2010 - 11:55 AM

Outperformed talents who would still be first-liners in the NHL like Jagr and Fedorov...

Oh wait, NM.


Not outperforming talents like these: http://www.nhl.com/i...avid=nhl-search

You think we could trade him for the player that which we don't speak of? =) I would take that trade=)


If Hudler was given Crosby's body, Hudler would be twice the player Crosby is.

Way to go Bert, let it skip over your stick and cause a 2-1 the other way.


YEAH BERT DON'T YOU KNOW HOW TO CONTROL THE PHYSICAL WORLD YET?

If they lose and Nashville wins at least the Wings' odds to win the cup might go up.

#1926149 3/27 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Predators 0 (SO)

I think in that article the example was drew miller who makes 525,000 per year. The maximum $7,500 is only 1.4% of that.

I'm not defending it and I think it's a horrible tax, but the word "unconstitutional" gets thrown around way too much. Like the fools who think the new health care bill is unconstitutional. It just bugs me.


#1925333 Filppula following similar path to Datsyuk...?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 26 March 2010 - 04:51 PM

And since I KNOW that you're just going to say (if you even reply to me at all, frankly I find it unlikely) that Flip's 8 points in 3 games came from playing with Z, something that Hudler never did. Well, here are the facts.

Filppula's line combos this year: http://www.dobberhoc...nations&sent=go
Hudler's line combos last year: http://www.dobberhoc...nations&sent=go

% time with Zetterberg (included only > 1%):
F: 12.99%
H: 12.54%

Pretty similar, am I right?

Furthermore:

When playing with Z, Hudler played with Franzen or Hossa 61% of the time. Filppula? 0%.

When playing with Z, Hudler played with Cleary 23% of the time. Filppula? 48%. AND, last year Cleary was much better than this year.


With the same chances, Filppula has PROVEN himself in the top 6. Hudler has yet to.


#1925326 Filppula following similar path to Datsyuk...?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 26 March 2010 - 04:41 PM

In the meantime, just as a point of reference, Jiri Hudler in 2008-09, beginning the year at 24, scored 57 points in 82 games playing on either the third or fourth line all year, usually with unskilled linemates.

blah blah blah blah

Filppula has shown he can produce offensively in a secondary role, but he won't ever be any more than that. Sorry to pop your bubble. Flip will peak at 45-55 points and probably produce that kind of level for a few years during his prime, but he simply doesn't have the talent or the potential to be the kind of offensive force Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Hossa, Hudler are. Hudler, OTOH, could be a consistent PPG player if/when he returns. He's got all the offensive ability, he's got offensive IQ better than all but a few players in the world, and all he needs, a bit more speed, a bit more ice time, and maybe a linemate who is better than Kirk Maltby.[/font]


Eva you are so incredibly biased. Hudler played with the same teammates last year as Filppula, and he had 5 times the PP time Flip did (Playing on the PP with Hossa/Zetterberg/Franen). STOP WITH THIS FOURTH LINE HUDLER CRAP. The FACT is, Filppula had the EXACT same points per minute ES with the SAME skill of line mates. You could even make the argument that Filppula's would be HIGHER than Hudler's if Flip didn't play in all situations (ie in the last minutes of a game where you're not trying to score).

And again, since Flip has been back from his injury he has been on a 66 point pace. 45-55 tops? Please. Enough of your annoying, biased crap.

When was the last time Hudler had 8 points in 3 games?

Also, Hudler played with Malty a whopping 1.78% of the time. He played on a line of Samuelsson and Zetterberg more than that.

You have been found wrong, you have been found straight LYING. These situations you speak of are delusions in your head.

Canucks fan had a major unfair advantage.


#1924326 Will Filppula hit 40 points?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 March 2010 - 10:36 PM

If Hudler had Martin St Lo- wait.
