#1926068 Unbelievable deflection by Holmstrom

Posted by stormboy on 27 March 2010 - 08:31 AM

Holmström was number 15 when he first got to Detroit, but wanted 96 for the year he got to the NHL - Bowman's suggestion was that he take 97, for the year he would leave the NHL.

is that true?

i'm a pretty new hockey fan, so i never watched cicarelli play, so i can't really contribute to that discussion. i will say that while homer can't skate, can't pass, can't take faceoffs, can't kill penalties, can't deke very well (a few exceptions aside), and doesn't have much of a slapper, not only does he have great tipping ability/hand eye coordination, but -- and i've always thought this was his greatest asset, he pays thef****** price in front of the net, every shift, every game. if "crosschecks taken" was a stat they kept track of, homer would win it by a mile every season.

while i, as a long-time filppula supporter, have *loved* seeing him thrive of late, i ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO EAT CROW when it comes to homer. i guess he was more injured than i realized last year, when he did not seem like himself. i honestly believed that he had not only lost a step, but could no longer compete in the NHL. i argued that our team would be better without him.


i couldn't have been more wrong, and i am SO happy about that. LONG LIVE THE DEMOLITION MAN!!!


Just thought I'd throw this in there ;)

a beauty, for sure, but he probably wouldn't do that again in ten more shootout attempts.

I agree. It'll be very interesting to see how the roster looks at the beginning of next season. They need to sign Homer, Bert, Eaves, Miller, and Abdelkader up front and a couple on the back end as well (Nick and Lils, hopefully).


I think we still need a scoring upgrade up front. I'd switch Bertuzzi for a higher end forward. If Hudler comes back it really throws a wrench in the works... I don't think I'd want to choose between Miller and Eaves.

well they got chances... but they also got unlucky bounces and one very bad turnover... That Zetterberg line is looking weak as well

Why can't you just say it? Howard with some awful rebound control and Lebda overskating the puck with a Filpulla turnover.
