Am I the only one who doesn't think oshie is that great? Brouwer is bigger puts up more goals and has a smaller cap hit.

I wouldn't trade Abby for oshie sorry.


Most of Brouwer goals came from the best PP in the league last year. He really isn't that good.

Why is this a thing? I don't know if any of you watch the NHL, but he's not good at shootouts.


Oshie was only 36.4% in SO's last season. You know who did better than that? Literally a ton of guys. Lets list some names: Frans Nielsen, Tyler Ennis, Radim Vrbata, Chris Terry, Brandon Pirri, Nick Bonnino, Mats Zuccarello, David Perron, Antoine Vermette, PA Parenteau, Mike Santorelli, Gustav Nyquist, Jacob Josefson, Jakob Silverberg, the list goes on...


And those aren't guys who took 1 shootout attempt and scored. Nyquist was 57% in SO's last season. Dramatically better than TJ freaking Oshie, but is Nyquist a SO specialist? No.


It's only a thing because of what he did for Team USA vs Russia in the Olympics.

Does anyone think that Babcock leaving made us more attractive to free agents? I know he's a widely respected coach for which many players would like to play. Just curious if the coaching change could be seen as a positive for players.


I think they are all tired of getting embarrassed by Datsyuk so they join the only team where that can't happen. :ninja:

The Wheel Deal @Bill_Roose

Mike Green said he trains with new #RedWings teammate Darren Helm, who spoke very highly of Detroit's first-year head coach Jeff Blashill.
