In Topic: will wings retire fedorov's 91?

29 April 2009 - 11:26 PM

I've been a Wings fan since the 40 pt. 85-86 season. I saw their rise back to respectability, when just winning the first round was considered a decent season and losing to the Edmonton Oilers in the conference championship was an incredible success (I still have the highlight videos - "Just A Matter of Time", and "We're for Real!"...Classic!). The Wings then stumbled and fell from respectability (I blame the Oates-Federko trade - just an opinion). Their meteoric rise began in '91, coincidently the first year Fedorov really made his presence felt on the ice as a Wing. Obviously Fedorov isn't solely responsible for the incredible success the Wings experienced for a decade. I'll say this, if the powers that be at the Joe found five jersey's to retire for the Cup winning teams in the 1950's, there should be more than two jerseys representing the great team from '92-'02 in the rafters. If you follow that logic, Federov's 91 should be up there.

In Topic: Jackets' Filatov records first career hat trick

He had Filatov up at the beginning, but must have felt some time in Syracuse would do him some good. After his success over the past two weeks, I don't see his return ticket being used. I have heard the comparison to the Big "O" in D.C. Would a comparison to a 20 year old Sergei Fedorov be a better one?

Good AHL call up. If Hitch didnt hate rookies so much, the Jackets would have been seeing this earlier this season.

Why not? She saw Ferris Beuler pass out.

I guess it's pretty serious...
