GUYS, GUYS! I just met Tomas Tatar in downtown royal oak. My girlfriend n I were walking and we walked by him and a buddy speaking slovakian to each other. I called out his name n was like o s*** its you, lemme shake your hand. I shook his hand n told him hes been playin great lately and to keep scoring. He smile a huge smile and thanked me and intoduced himself and his buddy. Seemed genuinely appreciative of my compliments. Nice guy. Night made!
Nice, sounds awesome.Now did you give him his orders to take out Cleary ?
Monster starts next game! I say they roll with him until he loses otherwise our goalie situation will be like what it is in Toronto, no consistency. The biggest thing I notice between Monster and Howard is Monster helps out the D tremendously because he can play the puck, something Howard really needs to work on.
I really don't get why some players are given an automatic pass and others aren't. We can't play the whole damn team with Datsyuk to produce. He was given a big contract to come in and be a #2 center. He was supposedly a #1 center in Florida and this was supposed to be a no brainer. Now people are happy if he just doesn't suck while he's out there? It's unbelievable.
I really don't get why some people absolutely write a player off after being on the team for 25 games. Comparing Weiss to Alfie is just as stupid as it gets, Alfie has elite vision and Hockey IQ which 80% doesn't even possess, that's why he can come in and do what he does. I question your loyalty as a Wing fan sometimes, if it isn't Datsyuk or Zetterberg according to you they suck.
How about giving the guy more than 20 games ? and not playing him with Sammy and Cleary. If you remember correctly a couple weeks ago Datsyuk was playing with Cleary and Bert and went -6 in a span of 3 games and only put up 1 point, that alone should tell you what Weiss is going through.
