In the words of Wayne Gretzky :

 

"He is, he was, he will always be the greatest of all time," - Wayne Gretzky in reference to Gordie Howe.

We've had a number of players playing above their ideal spot. And it has lead to many people turning against those players. But I don't understand it - it's not their fault that Blash didn't put Tatar or Nyquist in our top 6 or that we don't have the franchise Dman.

 

To me Helm is the perfect 3rd line player.

Ericsson would be fine used as a number 4 guy and off the first pair

Abby is not a 'typical' 1st line player, but is there to add grit and a net front presence - a different version of Holmstrom

 

I think Helm did fine with Datsyuk, but it wasn't ideal. Tatar and a healthy Franzen would have been good. Have Richards on the line made things worse when he was there. Partly roster mismanagement, partly a team in transition. To me, Helm is the 3rd line center who always put in huge effort, is great at faceoffs, great pker and supplies secondary scoring, is responsible defensively (I have no idea where the turnover-machine idea comes from - one site says he had the 2nd least of our regulars).

The Red Wings twitter feed has been retweeting messages from several other NHL clubs and their words of condolences.  Nice to see teams that are normally bitter rivals standing together.  Rocky Wirtz of the Chicago Blackhawks had some especially nice words to say...
 

The Chicago Blackhawks offer their heartfelt condolences to Gordie’s family and the entire Detroit Red Wings organization.  There is no greater rivalry in hockey than the one between the Red Wings and the Blackhawks, and Gordie was a large part of that.  There’s a reason why he is called 'Mr. Hockey,' because of what he did for the game, and we stand with the entire sports world, in mourning his loss.

 

 

Sad day.  Red Wings fans, and hockey fans the world over, will miss you sir.

Just watched a tribute on sportsnet.  When Lidstrom came to Detroit he asked to wear # 9. They pointed to the rafters and told him he couldn't wear that number.  #5 looks pretty good up there too.  RIP Mr Hockey.

If anything, Kessel would be the player most likely to drop the Cup.
