The Wings have no structure. They just throw the puck anywhere. Watch how Toronto does it.

We will NEVER win against San Jose. Never I say. And Jones is the best Goalie in the history of the NHL.

Abdelkader is a decent player, but nothing special except that he's the only really physical guy the Wings have with any amount of skill.  Depending on how long and how much, this could either be a decent contract or terrible.  If he gets close to $5 mil for 6 years, I'm going to be pissed.  If it's 4 or 5 years at $4.25 mil a year, I'll be ok with it.

 

Pros:

He scored 44 points last year and showed he has the skill that made him a 2nd round pick.

He's the only Wings' forward who is big, plays like he's big, and has shown NHL level skill.

 

Cons

He has one year where he scored at a good rate, other than a 20 game stretch where he was hot the previous year.  

He's approaching the age where physical players start to tail off.

Lots of guys could score 20+ goals playing as much as he does with Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Moves are going to have to be made! If Abby is projecting north of $4M, Danny D is projecting north of $4M, guarantee Mrazek gets at least $4M...that doesn't even include having to try and better our team via trade or UFA, or the players that are out of options next season. This is why you have to get rid of Erection, one of Smith/Kindl and don't even think about re-signing KFQ.  Helm can be traded, Andersson can as well.  These are UFA's that are redundant on this team and will waste cap space if re-signed.  Hell, most of us knew Helm was tradable with the emergence of Glen and Sheahan.  Speaking of Sheahan, he will get in the $2M's on his next deal too.  We need to make this team better, and right now, we need to add by subtracting so we can do so.  If we want to even sniff Byf, we need to clear tons of capspace, especially if we are going to overpay 30 point players.

The only thing to complain about, and rightfully so, is the skyrocketing salaries for average players.  It seems you have the Elite ($8M-$10M) then the bottom ($2M or less) and then for some reason you have everyone else making $3M-$7M and most not really deservng it.  I konw the market dictates it, but in no real world does Abby deserve the same amount of money as a Nyquist.  Nyquist is a 50+ points per year scorer, I can never see Abby getting above 30 too many more times, if ever again, heck I even thought $4.75M was a bit much for Nyquist so soon, I was kind of hoping for a bit less for a couple of years, then the bigger money.  If you ask me, $3.5M is the top of the heap for players like Abby, if not a bit less but no more.  But, I digress because we are living in an NHL world that says KFQ and Erection are worth nearly $5M....that's my complaint, we've gone through 2 lockouts to get a reign on these contracts, but you sure cannot tell by looking at most of them.

This team doesn't play with the puck anymore all the do is chip it out and let the other team attack again and again

We look like one of the weaker teams in the league so far. Disappointing start to the season. No urgency and getting outshot like every game. No puck possession. Hope they fix things soon.

Ericsson is our best fighter.

True, just sometimes wish we had a guy more or less designated to "keep the flies off", as Babs used to say, though those guys are becoming more rare around the league overall


The last time we had a legitamate guy like that on our team. We won a cup.

We finally get Ericsson off the first pairing and Green goes and gets hurt to put him right back on it. 

 

Dammit Green.

I was just thinking, "Why is Smith on the PP" and then one second later the puck is in, and I'm like, "oh, okay."
