#2124240 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by HankthaTank on 01 March 2011 - 02:25 PM

Stop nailing the OP for the idea of the best 2-way forward in the entire world to be the Captain. All that said, we know that Hank is the next Captain of the best sports franchise in the universe. Someone go ahead and "attack" my username :hehe: we all know the truth. No more telling of a picture than the one of Stevie, Kenny, and Hank in 1 picture. I think they already decided a few years back especially in the Cup run year of '08. But hey, I am a double threat guy with user name and avatar! OH NOOZZZZZZ :scared:

Lids will not be around forever. Yes, it sucks. It sucked with Stevie, but that is how life is.

There is no reason that Pavel does not deserve to be the Captain once Lids retires. There is also no reason that Hank does not deserve it. However, unless we rotate the C, only one gets it.

Bashing people for suggesting Pavel is entirely lame. He would do a great job.

Hank will be the one getting it. He has more of a "captain" persona. It's no slight to Pavel. Coming in second to Hank is no insult.


#2124114 Kings GM complaining about calls

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 01 March 2011 - 09:21 AM

I found it hilarious that Stoll was going apes*** in the box after he saw the replay of himself clearly high-sticking Filppula in the face. Seriously Stoll, WTF were you looking at that made you think you weren't as guilty as they come.

Now, the Greene high-sticking call I'll agree. That was BS, but atleast justice was served and we didn't score on it.


#2123414 Wings sign Howard to 2-year, $4.5M extension

He would have easily made this on the open market, if not substantially more considering how young he still is.

...best of luck to Shawn Burr in fighting this horrible disease. It would be way too soon losing another Wing. I just want the great Detroit fans to know we are thinking about Mr. Burr and praying for a speedy recovery. God bless.

I love Getzlaf, but we have enough playmakers. Nash is a goal scorer, so I chose him.


#2121370 Avery Sucks.

Posted by HankthaTank on 24 February 2011 - 04:20 PM

Say what you will, I'd love to have Avery back in a Wings sweater.

We seem to have a "No douchebag" policy that seems to be working out.

...and to think, after his 5 goal game, some folks were comparing him to Fedorov...


Yeah, you said that already.

For a guy who skates like Homer, it's no surprise he's not contributing playing with Abdelkader and Miller. Once Fil and Modano are back and we can roll 3 scoring lines, I expect Homer will be better. Honestly, i've liked his game lately. He's made smart passes, played good defence. I think he'll be fine. Franzen is more of a piss off for me, he's playing with talent and scoring no goals.

#2119926 Osgood's status could prompt trade at deadline

Posted by stevkrause on 21 February 2011 - 01:23 PM

The day I heard about the surgery, I said I thought Osgood's career was over and my opinion hasn't changed - I think this is just another case of the Wings brass being smart and knowing that if they make it obvious they have a need, then they need to overpay... instead, they have Osgood play along and pretend he's coming back, even though they know he's not and he knows he's not and then they can make a quiet, under the radar move that won't cost us a ton and bring in a serviceable back-up, then Osgood announces his retirement in the off-season.

EDIT - plus, if he retires now, we get hit with his caphit and no roster player, whereas if we LTIR him for the season, we get cap relief for him and can exceed the cap by his value, while freeing up the roster spot... seems to me like Osgood is just "taking one for the team" like the great team guy he has been his whole career
