Weiss with a big f*** off to Mike Babcock.

Tatar! Kindl actually does a great job getting pucks through. Probably his only strength.

What is Brendan Smith's strength? I think it's that he's realgud.

Even if we have a chance, I'm not really interested in spending the $7 million or whatever it would take to sign him to a long-term deal. Besides, if Babcock is still coach he might roll something like this...

The Wings should buy up as many of those sticks as possible. That way he'd have no choice but to sign with us in the off-season.

#2574318 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Because he was pissed off and it was a rivalry game?  I'm not sure why you think that's some sort of objective standard by which to measure fighting's impact on the game.  Furthermore, as I've stated before, if you want to understand how one variable impacts another, you use science...not an interview with Claude Lemieux.  Scientific research has consistently shown that fighting does not positively impact the game.  The fact that a bunch of people say otherwise doesn't mean anything unless they're qualified to say so professionally and empirically.  For quite a long time everybody just "knew" that the sun orbited the earth, and the world was flat.  It was common knowledge...duh. 
Science says fighting is harmful for the individual and unnecessary for the game.  I don't really give a s*** what the athletes say.  These are the same types of guys who still regularly use sterdoids, chewing tobacco, etc.  They're not exactly to be trusted for their keen insights and objective thinking. 

I agree that fighting is harmful in that it can leave a player with long-term issues related to concussions, brain trauma, etc. If that's your only argument, fine.

But to say a genuine fight doesn't impact a hockey game is silly. That's like saying a big hit or shot block doesn't affect the momentum of a game either. Or the crowd even. There are too many variables and differing scenarios that a scientific study won't be able to capture this.

Also, chemistry and camaraderie are vital to any hockey club. Sticking up for your linemate after a dirty hit is part of being a good teammate. You don't think that brings a team closer together?

well, were getting kindl and Smith tonight, so we'll be able to compare them in game!

Haha yeah...whoever gives you the least amount of heart palpitations in the defensive zone wins.

I personally have not joined richdg's bandwagon and think Quincey is bolstering DK. He'll be out of the NHL in a year so we should trade him now with the hype.

Brave use of sarcasm.

As much as I want new faces, I don't think Franson and Jagr would've made a difference tonight.

Our team would be bigger, but softer actually.

Ehhhh...Bernier's seen crazier goals by Nelson Mandela.

I love the historical accuracy and attention to detail in this work of art

Except Monica Lewinsky's hand was a bit higher in real life. :/

Weiss isn't even close to Helm in ANY aspect of the game...

You're right. Weiss has way better hands and hockey sense. It's not even close.

In saying that, I'm still a big Helm fan. But there's a reason he's never put up anywhere near as many points as Weiss did for so many years in Florida.

Kindl needs to sacrifice the body there. Guess he doesn't wanna mess up his hair though.

He converted into a Leafs fan just for the jokes!

#2529599 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

I wonder if Quincey got a 'No Trade Clause'.


Oh wait...watching him play basically is a NTC itself.

I would think Stevie could get more than a 6th round pick for Gagner. He's only 24 and has a $3.2 million dollar cap hit over the next two seasons.

Good job freeing up cap space, but bad asset management IMO.
