Is this really funny to you, our inability to do anything offensively because of overpaid guys like Filp? Why can't he get a goshdarn shot off there?

Unexceptable.


Because there were about 4 people withing a few feet of him that didn't quite want him to get that shot off.

Lol Flip sets up Datsyuk and Datsyuk returns the favor.

^ Lidstrom wouldn't do that.


More good pressure by the second line.

The second line looks twice as good with Bert now instead of Cleary. And least Bert can skate with the puck.

Filp has decent hands anyways. Putting him in the shootout was a pretty logical choice. If anyone didnt like it they can be mad at Babs, not Filp.


Or just don't be mad at anyone? Flip has shown great hands. NO one scores 100% of the time.

definitely. cause no one has been upset with Z's pathetic shootout attempts all season long. no one has called him out on this board multiple times. everyone gets a free pass except for filppula.

again, you're delusional.


If it was Franzen, Miller, Cleary, Lilja, Bertuzzi, Lidstrom, Rafalski, Hudler or Holmstrom went and missed, no one would say anything, YOU certainly wouldn't. Zetterberg is an exception, not the rule. Even then I don't think anyone would say "Zetterberg you suck ass". Maybe they would, I don't know. It's unfounded regardless.

Makes as much sense as insisting that a person that says Zetterberg makes 7.4M is skewing the facts.

Give it up.......


So a lot of sense?

Thanks :thumbup:

I'm just telling you why Babcock picked Filppula. After Datsyuk, Williams and MAYBE Bertuzzi (though when was the last time he scored a goal), Filppula is the best option. Is he 1 for 5 in shootouts? Fine, but it's hardly the entire picture. Miller is 100% in shootouts. Maybe he should go first every time?

He said you are grasping at straws.


Yeah it's a shame that that doesn't answer my question.

"hey, let's toss one of our worst shootout performers statistically out there in that clutch #3 shooter spot"


Obviously you don't remember Filppula's last clutch goal in the shootout that kept us alive.

filppula on the PP Posted Image


I'd support Filppula on the PP just if it meant you killing yourself.

Name one person you'd put on the PP over Flip. He's not even the lest good player on the PP.


#1918341 Filppula or Hudler

Posted by Z and D for the C on 18 March 2010 - 06:14 PM

why am i not surprised


Because I'm a vocal Filppula supporter and I have a Filppula avatar?


Tell me if I'm close.


#1918283 Filppula or Hudler

Posted by Z and D for the C on 18 March 2010 - 04:20 PM

You even think Filppula is a better passer than Hudler?


Yes. (Maybe not better, but at least equal)

One big thing I think Filppula needs to do is just slow down, he always just seems sort of frantic out there. Generally when people think of Hudler's passing skills it's squeaking one through the slot on the PP (this is the impression I'm under, anyway). Once Filppula learns to slow down the game I think that he can do the same.

Their offensive production is equal (though huddles has a better shot/scores more goals), Filppula better everything else.


#1917888 Another dirty hit

Posted by Z and D for the C on 17 March 2010 - 11:39 PM

Truly hysterical dive. Glad that the ducks scored because of it.


#1917473 Red Wings GM Ken Holland hasn't given up on wandering Jiri Hudler

Posted by Z and D for the C on 16 March 2010 - 11:05 PM

If last year if Hudler would have stayed scoring the same rate and had gotton the time Filppula had gotten Hudler would have a prorated Point total of 68.7, compared to Filppula's 40, and if he was given Z's icetime, he would have scored 78 points.


Last year, if Hudler was given Filppula's even strength time on ice, he would have scored 36 even strength points, compared to Filppula's 36.

Given Zetterberg's ES TOI last year, Hudler would have scored 37 even strength points, compared to Zetterberg's 41.


Your stats are seriously skewed because you're not taking into account all the differences for even strength, short handed and power play.

Again, if Filppula (I'm not using Filppula here because I have a hard on for him, but because he's the closest comparison) was given Hudler's PP time, Filppula's point totals would have been very close to Hudler's actual total last year.
