Just wanted to say that Abdelkader is not a good 1st line forward.

I think he does it a lot more than people claim. I saw a lot of hustle from him against Philly, as well.

That's not at all what he's saying. Are you really arguing the point that a players point production ISN'T affected by his linemates?  This thread of full of people who didn't like Fil, and didn't want him here. He's playing much better in Tampa, and Z and D is right in saying it's likely mainly due to his linemates. Weiss has been bad here this year, he's been playing with essentially the same linemates Fil was.


Oh, and Nyquist is still a rookie, are you saying that he's as good as playing with Dats or Z on the powerplay? Damn this thread is full of ignorant comments.

Hudler and Franzen had some of their best seasons when playing on a line with Fil... Don't pull that crap.

To the degree people argue Filppula is affected?


I liked Fil up until last season where he played himself out of a Wings uniform. Spin it all you like, but he had a terrible year and did not warrant a contract.


Also Weiss has not been bad. That's a garbage opinion to support a garbage assertion. And Franzen's production has been steady regardless of his linemates, as well as Hudler's production. Filppula is not a dynamic player who makes them around him better.

Yeah, must be really terrible to have a guy like Nyquist with you on the powerplay.


You are essentially saying that Filppula cannot generate offensive himself, but is completely reliant on his linemates to create offense, even on the powerplay.

Looks like the last two are Shanahan and Robbie Tallas (?).


My guess is Tallas because it looks like a 2000 patch on his jersey, and it could be either a 34 or 35.


Obscure goaltender, haha.
