I don't care if Datsyuk moved FARTHER away from his family or is living in the same house with them. Dude signed a contract, didn't fulfill it, and left the team in a pickle. Did Holland make the best of the situation? Probably, unless that 16 pick turns out to be an absolute stud.
I agree. I think with as much time that has passed a lot of people have forgotten just how good Fedorov was.
Imo Feds is the most complete player I've ever seen play the game. Wicked slap shot, extremely powerful wrist shot. Dangles, defensive, faceoffs, fastest skater in the world. I mean there's nothing I haven't seen him do.
The guy even fought on (very extremely) rare occasions lol. It wasn't a part of his game but this one is pretty nice.
Rehab and possibly a pin should fix the shoulder up fine. Years ago, mine used to come out of the socket while I slept. Try waking up to that in the middle of the night! Now, though, after lots of rehab, it's as strong as ever. Of course I'm not a one-dimensional minor league hockey player though ...
No s*** if we drafted a top 3 player they'd be playing but just because we don't doesn't mean every prospect has to wait 4 years in the minors .... Your telling me Tatar wasn't ready after 3 years In Grand Rapids?nyquist? Don't tell me they weren't ready
It's quite obvious Detroit has always preferred the veterans over younger talent ... Just look what they did now , they signed ott who hasn't been relevant in 7 years , signed vanek on the decline after they said mantha would be given every opportunity to make this team ( we both know that's not happening especially with Miller AND helm being resigned as well )
Ouellet is another kid who could of played last season but waited another year cause we give wastes like Ericsson longterm deals
First? The way this team is headed that can end up being a top 5 pick , no way we can touch it now
Some nights Tats and Gus aren't ready now. Good grief. Those two are small, soft complimentary players. With any luck we'll be able to move one of them in a package for a good defenseman before Oct 13.
