#2048946 Draper might need surgery; Johan Franzen practices

Posted by under_par_00 on 18 October 2010 - 12:35 PM

Why couldn't Draper be put on IR at the beginning of the season, and we could have kept Ritola around a little longer. Also possibly buy more time to work on a trade.


#2048549 Does our "Enforcer" suck?

I think Datsyuk has played well. ;)


#2048704 Illitch "definitely committed" to new downtown arena

I'm sure whatever he decides to do will be awesome, but it'll be hard to say goodbye to the Joe.

Take a s*** all over Pittsburgh's new barn.

He looks good on that line, but I wouldn't say he's revitalized.

In his prime, he'd be destroying people out there with crushing bodychecks, and scaring the hell out of opposition with his dominance in front of the net.

He's fit in nicely in Detroit, but is a different, more tentative player than he was before. He's reinvented himself, not revitalized.



No, I agree, he is certainly past his prime and will never be that player again. Part of that is indeed his lower back issues.

I do mean exactly that he is not near as tentative as he has been since leaving Vancouver. He has a lot more jump than he ever had in Florida, Detroit I, Anaheim, Calgary, and even last year with the Wings. He is playing with a lot more confidence and flow than I've seen him play with since leaving Vancouver. He looks like he is enjoing the game, at home with is teammates, and feels good to hustle. He doesn't look frustrated and like he is laboring and also thinking too much out there like he has since leaving Morrison and Nazzie.


Is he good as new? No. Revitalized? Yes.

Yes i know it's very early, but I've gotta say that Bertuzzi looks like he has more jump than he's had in a long time. He really hustles on the back check, looks like he relishes playing with Franz and Filp, likes his role very much. And the little fight in preseason for the hit on Franzen :thumbup: . While he is indeed a scoring threat, he is really a great passer with his vision and hands and this seems like such a perfect fit for him.

He really looks like he's settled in with the Wings and is foucussed and will contribute even more this year.

WHat do you think?

I think that line as a whole has hands down been our best line this season... I really hope they all stay healthy all season and if they do, that line could give all 3 of them career years... and dare I say it... maybe even a 50 goal year out of Mule...

Looked like 2 chicks swinging their purses at each other. I was half expecting one of them to pull out their can of hair spray and spray the other in the eyes.

Posted by Broken 16 on 09 October 2010 - 02:02 PM

I've been reserving judgment on proclaiming Datsyuk my favorite player of all time. This might have sealed it. Undisputed most complete player in the game. I'm not gonna bother nitpicking the details of who won or lost. Pavs was more than Perry could handle and that's more than good enough for me.

I honestly believe that if Pavs decided to work on the fighting aspect he would come up with dangle style knockouts that nobody has ever seen before. He's that creative.

Jesus christ the guy has two gimme goals thanks to Franzen's sick pass and Turco impersonating Hellan Kellar and suddenly hes a top 35 scorer in the league...


Have you ever watched a hockey game in your life? That fact he got 2 goals last game is no coincidence, even if they weren't spectacular goals. Flip is playing his ass off, in fact he always has, and now he is being rewarded for it. It's long overdue.
