In Topic: Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Benn should face diciplinary action for that. The league wants to cut back on hits to the head? Well, that was about as clear of intentional,dirty, hit to the head I've ever seen.

In Topic: Are the Wings a Contender?

We'll know if we're a contender after the next two weeks.


It starts tonight, at home against the top team in the East. Then we start a long road trip against some tough Western Conference teams, including Chicago, San Jose, Los Angeles, Anaheim and finish it off against Nashville.


The end of the trip also coincides with the trade deadline. I wonder if Ken Holland is waiting to see how this trip shakes out before deciding to "go for it" and trade assets to add a missing piece.


If we come out of this trip with a solid winning record, and Kenny brings in some top tier defence I will be booking holiday time in late May.

If Zetterberg leads the Wings to a few more cups, then maybe.  But that's a pretty big "if" and "maybe"


Currently, there is no one else even close.  


I'm going to go with Mrazek as my outside chance, dark horse pick.

@NHLTradeRumors: The Red Wings are offering Tomas Jurco, Riley Sheahan and a first round pick in return for Coyotes Keith Yandle

Jurco, Sheahan and a first should get us Yandle and Hanzal.

Really tight checking game. Not a lot of space for either team. There was a lot of sloppy passing and turnovers by both teams.


Again, Detroit seemed to get most of the "puck luck".


What happened to Abby?


Did anyone catch the CBC announcer say that Babcock put Jurco out with Z and Dats near the end of the game because he was good defensively? lol
