In Topic: Drew miller injury *Graphic content*

This is the third skate related injury the Wings have had in recent years. (Modano, Helm, now Miller)


I don't pay enough attention to the rest of the league.  Is this a common occurrence, or have the Wings been unusually unlucky?

If Helm isn't playing, I'm not going to bother watching this one.

I skipped yesterday's game and the loss doesn't sting nearly as bad as if I had invested 2.5 hours of a Saturday afternoon into it. These s*** shows that Wings turn in for the afternoon games sure can put a sour mood into the rest of the day.

This team sucks without Helm.

I'm aware the chances are that he won't continuously put up points.
My question was, if he put up a point every other game, would you object to him staying there.
I get that it seems crazy to have a prototypical 4th line c as a first line winger, I understand that.
If he scores or is directly involved the scoring at a .50 ppg was the context of the question.
Whether or not it was a fluke that he scored, or a soft goal, or any other knock against him being on datsyuks wing is irrelevant.



that's an odd question. 


If he scored if every other game he would be a 40 goal scorer, and making 7 million dollars.  Of course he'd be on the first line.


last time we had a guy even close to that good, we signed Franzen instead.

In Topic: Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Not sure if it's already been posted here, but the team seemed to suggest he'll wind up with Z.

Ken Holland calls the trades to get Zidlicky and Cole more of depth moves. Mentioned Erik Cole playing on a line with Zetterberg. #Wings

And are Cleary and Cole REALLY being compared? Cole's scored more goals than Cleary's played this year.



Yeah, the Dats-Tatar-Helm line has been really good.  (and there's been  a good handful of games where Helm has been the best player on the ice)


And the Z-Abby-Nyquist has been fairly lacklustre lately. Might be better off Replacing Abby with Cole


A 3rd line of Abby-Sheahan-Weiss could really wreck some house come playoff time.





Miller-Glendening-Anderson.  (This line has been fantastic all year,btw)


Babs will start the playoffs with the vets. Jurco and Pulks will be the odd men out for the playoffs.
