i seriously dont even want myers. and buffalo is throwing out names like mantha and larkin, F off.

lol at callahan though

Yeah Myers hasn't put it together yet due to his poor development - might never. We are actually developing our kids and they want us to do the dirty work for them. Myers would be a beast by now if Detroit had drafted and developed him - such a shame. Same could be said for Adam Larsson.

1. Smith - creating offence, jumping up in on the play, leading the rush, cut down on mistakes and turnovers, making good decisions.

2. Kronwall - still in his peak, playing more careful as the leader of the d group, a few more mistakes than we are used to but that comes from playing the hardest minutes

3. DD - very steady, moving the puck well, not making mistakes, not producing offensively yet and this needs to come along soon hopefully

4. Quincey - haven't really noticed him which is a good thing, hasn't made any crazy stupid decisions that I've noticed, not much offensively

5. Kindl - he has been sheltered a lot it seems, hasn't been too bad after the first couple of games, still not doing much to contribute

6. E - has been slow, error prone, softer than usual, zero offence, average defence - either he is having a slow start or he isn't aging well


All in all I would say Smith, Kronner, and DD are all mainstays for the future. I wouldn't mind picking up a Petry/Myers and then adding Ouellet and one of Jensen/Marchenko for next season. The following season we will probably see Sproul make the jump and then we have to make some tougher decisions. Sproul definitely needs to make this team eventually with his tools. I wouldn't mind shipping E out at the end of the year while he still has some trade value. 


Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Petry/Myers

Ouellet - Marchenko/Jensen

Okay we need more scoring

Nyquist-Zetterberg-Franzen (money)
Abby-Datayuk-Tatar (most likely money)

If you really want to generate scoring we need to have Mantha up as soon as he can physically play. 


Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Pulkkinen - Datsyuk - Mantha

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Abby - Helm - Glendening

Andersson Miller


Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Ouellet

Quincey - Ericsson



This team could easily win pond-hockey run and gun style. Its so stressful to watch games and know that we only have 1 or 2 goals in us and if we get scored on once it pretty much spells a loss for us. I wish we could be down 3-0 and still feel like we have a shot to get points out of it.

Helm - Weiss - Abby

Miller - Glendening - Andersson


I think long term we should try to break Weiss in as 3C and have Z and Dats together to improve longevity. Mix and match the wingers as you like. 4th line has been fine.

I could be wrong, but I thought he wanted over 5 to stay with us and we all thought he was a dick for not taking a moderate discount. Then we could sign this 60pt guy for less, and we were set for a cup run with Alfie... At least that is how I remember it. There has been countless bottles of whiskey, wine, and beer between there and here so it could be just a random figment of my distorted imagination.

ah yes. sorry. you are right. Also I recall the Fil produced only at wing with dats that one year so we wanted a legit 2C that could put up points.
