If we keep calling the kids up, who is gonna be left in GR when I go see them in March?


This happened to me last year. I went to a game, and a bunch of the kids i wanted to see were up in Detroit. I had to watch Conklin get beat up by an AHL team.

I wish some of the guys on our team played with half of this enthusiasm.

#2336465 Who takes Hudler's shootout spot?

Posted by Rick D on 20 December 2012 - 01:45 PM

Hockey seems like such a distant memory that I can't recall, but was he used in the shootout much? or at all?

Because you're right, you'd think he'd be a candidate. Great shot, good hands.

After playing a whole game, and an overtime.
A long skate from center ice to the goal might be too much work for him.

So I was about to order a new Wings hat, mine are getting mangy, but instead, I ordered a Tigers hat. Take that NHL!


Take that Mike Ilitch!!!

"Year after year"? That's a head-scratcher considering Kindl has only played one full season in the NHL.

Now I am totally convinced you have no clue what you are talking about. Obviously you didn't watch him since you think he's played "year after year" in the NHL, but he had a month stretch during injuries where he was an absolute beast. Not bad for his first full season in the NHL.


Wasnt this last season the 2nd season where Kindl had an oppertunity to be in the line-up, but couldnt make it??

I seem to remember him compeating with Salei the season before.

#2308837 Trade Ian White?

Posted by Rick D on 22 June 2012 - 04:05 PM

The guy played on out top pairing last year,

We just lost two of our top four,

And he blocks shots with his face.

I wouldnt be up for trading that away right now.

They beat the #1, #2, & #3 in the west. That's a pretty awesome accomplishment. Good luck to them in the finals.

"You donít attack any more than you do as a center," Filppula said. "But usually as a center you attack against all five guys, or four guys. Now as a winger you have one or two guys ahead of you.

"Being a (winger) you can think more about playing in the offensive zone than you can when youíre a center. At least thatís how I felt when I was playing center, because you were always worried about taking some of the responsibility off the defense."

Zetterberg said that playing the wing is prompting Filppula to shoot more.
