Why didn't Filppula need an adjustment period going to Tampa?

Because they didn't ask him to learn a completely different system.

#2447179 Edler Suspension Aftermath.

Posted by jollymania on 23 October 2013 - 10:11 AM


No offence, but that's a stupid thing to say. Anyway, like you know what he was trying to do. "Looks like"?


I know you're a big hit guy. Last time I checked, you were president of the Mark Fistric fan club. I'm surprised you'd disagree with my original statement. Especially in such a smarmy way.


Let me rephase. If you're not sure you're going to get the body, give up the hit. Otherwise, open your wallet and get used to wearing a suit when the puck drops.

That has nothing to do with it, he was stepping up to make a pinch, if he avoided contact hertl would have been gone. It was a split second decision by edler, again I don't think you understand the speed/decision making process involved.

You should really write professionally.  If you wrote a hockey column, I'd read it faithfully.


And then I'd write idiotic, borderline illiterate comments. :P

If it brings closure for the family than I guess it serves a purpose.  


I will withhold my opinion of "psychics".

#2439290 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by Mors on 27 September 2013 - 10:29 AM

These threads always pop up and then completely disappear when Bertuzzi wins a couple of shootout games or beats somebody up. Like it or not he's staying, personally I like it.

#2439287 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by wingslionstigers on 27 September 2013 - 10:01 AM

Bertuzzi is the only player in the world that can compete in the NHL with one hand on his stick. Do you see Crosby walking people one handed? No. I believe Bert plays with this style as it frees an arm up so he can efficiently drop elbows to somebody's nose if needed.

If I was going to keep any of these older guys it would be Bert. He is a pretty smart passer and a big body who will still get physical when needed. You need a guy or two on a roster that you can plug in anywhere to make ends meet and hes a good guy for the job. Cleary and Sammy is who needs to go.

#2439283 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 27 September 2013 - 09:40 AM

10 years ago Bertuzzi was the premiere power forward in the world. Size, speed, hands, and grit.


He still has 3 of those qualities. You need people on the 3rd and 4th lines that can pass, score, and take the body. We aren't expecting 30 goals from him, but we are expecting him to play gritty hockey. Right now, from what I have seen, he is bringing snarl to the ice every shift. If he hustles instead of coasting around waiting for a pass I think he is an upgrade over both Sammy and Cleary, and at times is an upgrade over Franzen. Also, he doesn't take sh*t from the other team on the ice when they chirp at skill guys. When Weber threw Z's head against the boards, we all weren't saying, "Oh boy! Wait until Z gets back up and kicks his a** on the powerplay." No, all of a sudden, Bertuzzi was an enforcer to fans on the board. And guess what happened the next game less than 2 minutes in, even in a small scale, Weber had to answer. Against a bigger, stronger, and younger guy Bertuzzi did the job of a non-existant enforcer.




Until he can't skate at all or loses his ability to handle the puck, he is the best player we have in the bottom six.

#2438967 Wings to Keep Tootoo?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 25 September 2013 - 06:07 PM


But Zetterberg didn't get injured, so everything's alright.



I don't know that anyone would've prevented it, but it was sad when a 38 year old with a bad back is the one to drop the gloves with Weber next time the teams played.  


Good on Bert but doing it, but jeez.



Bert fighting SOB twice in the same game is a good example of how sticking up for yourself can change the tone of the game.  They were running guys all game until that point.

#2436809 Gustav Nyquist (whats next)

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 16 September 2013 - 08:35 AM

well so much for Nyquist taking a huge step forward this season..


lol  Do you really think Holland plans on burying Nyquist in the minors for very long?  He's just making room so he can get a trade done for one of the veterans.  This is 100% about asset management.  Holland of all people wants Nyquist to play as much time in Detroit as possible.  Think of it this way-- it'll be easier to find a trade partner once Bert and Sammy have a chance to show that they can still play and other teams find the need to add a veteran due to injuries.  At this point in the season every organization is busy evaluating their young talent going into the pre-season.


It's in Holland's best interests to make sure the Wings' young talent has the optimal environment to thrive. 

#2436206 Gustav Nyquist (whats next)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 September 2013 - 12:58 PM

I am being completely honest to all of you. I now am in complete and total shock. Maybe I am crazy but here it goes. I love Cleary and we got him for cheap, but my question now "what is going to happen
to Gustav Nyquist?
He played very well for us last season.  A player that is young and speedy, a player some slotted on the second line if Allfy was playing on line one,  a player I couldn't wait to watch this season
He is going to be a player in Grand Rapids?

Seems that way now, unless he plays 2 more nhl games.

Nothing better than a GDT! Hopefully there will be a stream for the game.

#2435970 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull 

Source: Dan Cleary is not at #Flyers camp. He was slated to be on ice with first group at 8:30 today.


Pulling a no show makes me think he's close to signing a contract, and non-PTO at that, to come back to the Wings.  I'm to the point where I don't care what he does, I just want it over.
