Honestly, I'm waiting for Lombardi to somehow manage to void Dustin Brown's contract so that he can re-sign Lucic.
Actually, I lied. I know exactly why it happens.
It's because these guys covet other team's star players that play a particular brand of hockey they long to see again in Detroit. They convince themselves that these players must be acquired at any cost (other than, you know, actually parting with the assets that would be required to do so) They then scour the internet for any tidbit of information that somehow seems to support their fantasy. Inevitability they become irrationally upset at Holland when he fails to trade rape the 29 other GMs in the league. Good times.
If the NHLPA acts on this I'm wondering if OEL would even go to the all star game if he was asked to. He might feel a bit awkward about the whole situation. He basically would be taking John Scott's slot that was taken away and is causing a good amount of drama.
Yotes going for 5 in a row, lets stop someone else's streak for a change
Give the Coyotes a streak in their hockey shorts when they realize the Wings have a mad on and light them up for 6+ goals.
I will second the first career hat trick for Larkin, today is as good as any. Goose gets off his snake bitten streak, Zetterberg, Smith and Abdelkader. Multiple assists for Datsyuk, Green, and Zetterberg.
So I can't post links from my phone for some reason, but if you look up "Martin Fork Prospects Report" on YouTube you'll hear some interesting thoughts from Holland, Blashill, and Ryan Martin concerning Frk. For what they're worth you can look up George Malik's notes (I know) on Frk. He does an analysis of all the prospects at the development camp and main camp and has consistently noted Frks pensive approach to the game, but undeniable skill and work ethic.
