I think something was lost in translation. I'm betting Datsyuk is talking about what he will do after his final year is out.
Exactly. He says he has one year left on his contract and three more games this season. They even ask him if hes concerned of the teams direction..He simply says hes upset on his own personal performance, in my opinion dudes a class act and will be back to finish his contract this next season.
This group is the sh*ttiest Wings team in a LONG time.
Agreed, and its tough to watch. It's hard to believe while watching this team that they are so bad...For whatever reason Ive been waiting all season for them to magically click, now that it appears that is not going to happen and Blashill at the 77 game mark STILL looks like he hasn't a f*cking clue
Yeah rather be average instead of getting guys like Ekblad, Nurse, McJesus or Eichel.
Just so people understand if the Wings make it they'll face Washington also known as the hottest team in the league. I don't know how getting destroyed in this series would help the confidence of the young guys. A guy like Juolevi, Chychrun would
I would rather win or lose games organically with integrity and draft guys like Larkin. If it's not good enough it will take its course and we'll suck naturally so I'd rather not rush it and feel good about it.
I feel its cheating to tank, losers tank, we just suck
AA has 4 goals and 7 points in 19 games and Jurco has 4 goals and 6 points in 39 games. Yet somehow Jurco is first line and AA is 3rd line?
Why are fans still so high on Jurco? He's being outplayed by guys younger and less experienced than he is. Jurco shouldn't be anything more than a third line winger till he can show he can play 1st line minutes.
Jurco has looked good while playing on that top line with Z & D, AA looks great on any line but I would just love to see him with Goose. Nyquist is one of the few players on our team that can make plays at the speed AA and himself are going. Jurco is liked by a lot of people as if he ever gets going he'll be a beast, best case of this happening is with Datsyuk-again just my opinion of what Id like to see
McCollum has never really been given a shot. Has he even started one NHL game yet? I know he's came in in relief a couple times, but that's it. He's a former first round pick. I know he hasn't been the greatest in the AHL. he's had ups and downs, but i'd like to see him get a chance at the backup role in Detroit before he's fully written off as nothing better than an AHL goalie. If he doesn't work out, so be it.
If this means 5 game trial I am down. If you are suggesting we go into a season after trading Howard with McCollum as our official #2 I would be very, very nervous.
