#2682728 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

None are generational players IMO. NoNE of the above.


#2682710 Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

For me it comes down to two things:


1.  Were they the best player in the league at any point in time?  

2.  Would I be genuinely upset if someone else wore their number while on the Wings?


Out of the four you listed above, only Datsyuk and Fedorov meet 'my' criteria 


- Datysuk never won a hart trophy, but he was voted by his peers as the best player in the league, and is considered one of the most talented stick handlers of all time. 

- Fedorov is in the HOF, was a hart trophy winner, and even though he left on semi bad terms, was one of the best players on the Stanley Cup teams.


Most importantly - I would be upset if anyone wore either of those numbers, which is really how I judge it haha

Good to see Rutherford still has no idea what he's doing.

I know he's been a disaster last few years but if he's willing to sign a one year deal for like 2 million I sign him in a heartbeat and put him with pavel datsyuk and hope he gets 30-40 goals again

If there's one fellow russian that'll get him going again, on the ice and off it's pavel

Wouldn't be opposed to it if he's getting a small contract. No way am I eclipsing 3 million for him.

Discussion boards are for... pandering to each others opinions?

Not saying your wrong, it's your opinion. However, if you took a poll, sorry but 6-8 players on your list aren't above Kronner.


A poll on this forum, maybe.  How about a poll of forums around the league?  That would be more unbiased.  

#2605954 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.

Does anyone really care what Devellano thinks?

Well, this isn't your older brother's  Red Wings, unfortunately.  We don't have those skilled defensemen anymore that could make great passes up the ice tape to tape.  

#2598393 Is Joe Louis Arena a tough place to play?

I'll blame all those on tickets that are owned by businesses that don't make it a priority to distribute them regularly. 
I think it would be ideal to redistribute season tickets once the new arena opens, but that's a pipe dream...

Actually I think you are correct. I have a few friends at GM who could get plenty of free tickets thru company and just don't end up going. It always does seem like the upper bowl is packed and lower bowl upper half is but the first few row seats are empty (company seats probably). It always select seats that seem to be empty to be quiet honest.

I was at the game too and it was nuts. One of my favorite playoff games that I have attended. I don't know how JLA came across on TV, but it was very loud in there tonight.

Most times it comes across TV as not being as loud as it really is.

I'm not sure how anyone can watch a game at the Joe and think it's not a tough place to play. Detroit has some of the best fans in sports.

Leaving the game now, after chanting "Lets go red wings" "f**k you Tampa" "f**k u bishop", booing the refs a hundred times (even after second when refs were the first to come on before the players), chanting "Abby Abby Abby" after scrum, booing Tampa players. I'd like to say the JLA is MOST definitely one of the toughest places to play. The fans completely went nuts!
