Datsyuk will dangle-handle them all :)

I  don't want Datsyuk to handle anyone's dangle.


If he knew that was expected of him, he would have went home to Russia for sure.

#2428336 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Lazerbeam on 07 July 2013 - 04:26 AM

I'm guessing that we're more or less done - after resigning Nyquist, Andersson and Smith...and, likely, buying out or moving Samuelsson to get us under the cap.

What do we think?


My Custom Lineup
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Daniel Alfredsson ($5.500m) 
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Stephen Weiss ($4.900m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) 
Gustav Nyquist ($1.875m) / Joakim Andersson ($1.875m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m) 
Drew Miller ($1.350m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) 
Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) / 
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m) 
Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) / Danny DeKeyser ($1.350m) 
Brendan Smith ($1.875m) / Jakub Kindl ($2.400m) 
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) / 
Jimmy Howard ($5.292m) 
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m) 
Buyout: Mikael Samuelsson ($0.000m) 
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,094,545; BONUSES: $3,010,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $215,455


...I don't watch a ton of non-wings hockey.  But my guy who watches just about every game in the league L-O-V-E-S, loves Stephen Weiss.  He's been talking about him being a Wing for years.  The early reports I've read all sound great too.  I'm excited.  I think we've finally got our second line center.  Enables us to play Pav and Hank together full-time, which is big.  Not sure how the rest of the top six - Alfie, Mule and Abby (or Bert?  I hope not) - is organized.  But I think our top six will be markedly better as a whole.  That third line that was so great in the post-season is still more or less in tact, with Tatar in for Brunner.  I like that.  Helm being back would be a big boost.  Miller, Bert, Eaves, Tootoo.  Shouldn't be terrible.


...Should be better here as well.  DD back full-time is enormous.  Smith, Kindl (and Lashoff too) with a 
year under their belt.  Quincey with a year back under his belt.  Kronner and E with a year of no Lidstrom under their belt.  Should be a better year for these guys.

...And Jimm
y.  Last year was big for his confidence, I think.  He thinks of himself as an elite goaltender now.  And that can't hurt.


How is this squad going to compete with the Boston's, Pittsburgh's, etc. of the big bad East?  What are our biggest weaknesses, as you see them?  Is there any hope for alleviating said weaknesses before the post-season?


OK, people got get this straight before they post, I am sick of seeing this all over the forums---Samuelsson CANNOT be bought out now, the period for Compliance Buyouts ended June 30. ALSO-Sammy has a NTC=NO TRADE CLAUSE. Third- if they Waive him his Salary of $3Mil STILL COUNTS AGAINST THE CAP because he is OVER 35-unless someone claims him.

Waste of money, waste of time. What a joke.

The next guy who takes a stupid penalty, better make sure he paralyzes someone in the process.  


Meaningless crosschecks aren't going to do the job.

#2388733 Bertuzzi not returning Wednesday vs Kings

So Samuelson is ready to play but Babcock won't give him a nod over the kids and the veteran's who are working hard. I think this is awesome :clap:


This needs to be framed and used as a banner on LGWs for the Bab-Bashers to chew on and absorb.

This team makes me wonder why I ever complained about last year's team. Please stop the trend!

#2381429 Riley Sheahan recalled

Check out the Malik report for details on this move.  He's got a good recap.  The only reason the move was made is because GR was playing in Vancouver and IF one of the Wings couldn't go on Sunday there wouldn't be enough time to get someone back from B.C.  It's a purely precautionary move on Holland's part.


Or he's being inserted into the lineup just to punch Barrett Jackman in his face tomorrow.

Can't wait to see Cleary and Abdelkader bumping into each other and skating right next to Pavel as he tries to create instead of getting open. Please, oh please let them play 21 minutes each!

I wish the NHL would tell me when we have no chance to win a game. I could have gotten some sleep

Posted by GoalieManPat on 21 February 2013 - 10:10 PM

Pavel Datsyuk is playing like a mad man right now and Babcock sticks him with two plugs in Cleary and Abdelkader. I have always liked Babs but he is just setting this team up to fail.

Tootoo wreaking havoc and causing Columbus to take a penalty, Wings better take advantage of this that was some good work by Tootoo.

Tootoo is our best player tonight.
