#2233152 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

Posted by CanadaBoy on 06 December 2011 - 02:15 AM

If the NHL was going to use a 8,8,7,7 split, this makes the most sense to me:
Don't want the Western teams to lose revenue from the Wings? Fine. Swap em with Columbus.

Does anyone else think Ericsson should sit out a game or two?

Ericsson better be a healthy scratch next game.

Jimmy Howard continuing to show that he's a top tier goalie in the NHL.

I will be streaming this game at http://freeredwings.tv. I will be using Veetle to stream the game because I have had problems with flash providers in the past week. You will need to install the Veetle plugin to view the stream.

Have you tried justin.tv?

#2220278 This team screams for a trade

Yes, you are correct, forgive me if I referred to him with us in 08, I am not sure if I did, but in 2009, he was our sniper, he fell off in the playoffs, but if it weren't for a couple of circumstances, the Wings would've won the Cup in 09 as well. There is that whole Bettman circumventing the rules thing that would've had Malkin sitting out in game three all but guaranteeing us a 3-0 lead in the series. But even with that, there were those couple of goal posts in game 7 that if buried would've won it for us too. But, since then we haven't come close to having a pure sniper to play with Datsyuk. Hudler, Franzen or Cleary are not 1st line worthy in that regard. But what else do we have....

In another universe, Jagr signed with the Wings and is playing with Datsyuk :hockey:

Datsyuk + Brunnstrom > Datsyuk + Holmstrom?

lots of love for datsyuk from these guys.

"best player in the league."

good to hear somebody outside of detroit admit that.


Same comment said by one of the commentators during the Pittsburgh game.

I was at the game, from what I saw:
Lidstrom is still a beast, wouldn't be surprised if he wins the Norris again.
Filpula has dramatically stepped his game up.
Pearce was a God during the shootout.
Ericsson does not deserve a roster spot.

Wiz, Jagr, and Richards are still avaliable :yowza:

#2187667 July 1st UFA Wish List

Looks like Markov is off the table:

Andrei Markov will resign with the HABS. 100%. Hearing will be a 2 year deal worth $11.5M.

#2187507 Is THIS team good enough to go the distance?
