Fairness of the deal aside, has Eklund ever been right about anything since the Philly activity? He got Richards to LA, correct? I'm legitimately asking.

No one's suggested it yet!?

Hey Stevie,

Greeeat deal on a Czech defender. Fantastic partner for Andrej Sustr. He'd be like an older brother to him.

...what do you mean "salary cap restraints?"... no, just do it. Do it.

In Topic: Myers close to become a wing?

Remember Wideman bad mouthing the Wings...or wait, was that Wizneuski?


I'm not sure about Wideman, but Wisniewski did for sure. I recall him going on about how Detroit doesn't pay players market value.

Also, just an update to the Myers situation, TFP is reporting that the Ducks are potentially offering Palmieri, Vatanen and Rakell as part of the deal for Myers. If that's the case, phew. Too rich for my blood, personally - draft picks included or not.

I love watching Pulu score like that - it seems so effortless for him. I wonder how effective it's going to be at the NHL level. Granted, he wasn't given many chances on the PP during preseason, but they seem to give him way too much space down in the AHL. You know the guy has a rocket, why give him the chance to let it go? That being said, I think he could boost the PP. Hope he has a great season down there. Should be the 1st call-up.


Does anyone have some updated lines? I'm pretty sure they've used Cally-Nosek-Pulu as one, and Hoggen-Miele-Ferraro, but I'm not sure about the other guys. Haven't gotten the chance to catch much of the Griffins yet.

Even just 5 games in, it's getting tough for me to see where Weiss is going to slip into the line-up, barring any injuries. 1st and 4th lines are performing very well, The Kid line just looks snakebitten, but they're getting chances. 3rd line could use a boost, at times. Nestrasil shows flashes on one play, then shows some growing pains the next, IMO. I wonder about Helm's health... he seems a step off to me right now. Really, once Datsyuk gets back, I have no idea where and when Weiss gets to jump in.

Having Joker as the 4th line RW has allowed him to slot into C on the 2nd PK unit, which as a whole, has been fantastic. I had very low expectations for Andersson, but I have to admit, he looks much faster and is doing some solid work on the 4th line and PK.
