#2518450 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Good. Since he really never got a shot with the Red Wings, now I can watch him play elsewhere.  I loved to see him in a Wings sweater, even for just a little while.  Good luck, Jordin!  :bye1:

Tootoo deserves better IMO...I don't mind seeing him cash out on the Red Wings dime - to be honest I'm glad he's going somewhere else where he'll be useful.

Man, this is brutal. Jesus Christ. What am I watching? Going on four straight periods we can't score against the Sabres!

That's what a good screen does. Jimmy has stopped everything he has seen.

They also don't have 11 AHL players in the lineup. Take away Boston's entire top 6, plus another defensemen and let's see how they do. Easy to say other teams that are healthy top players always perform when the Wings have maybe 6 regular NHL players in the lineup and are easy to shut down because you can just focus all the pressure on them.


As for Bert, I usually am a big supporter of him, but if you watched last night you would see some of the dumb decisions he makes with the puck. Instead of dumping it in when he is on the wing he will almost always try to throw a pass across to the other wing which 99% of the time gets picked off and creates rushes the other way unexpectedly. I noticed him do this at least 6-7 times yesterday. He is not helping this team at all and would much rather Pulk played in his position. Bert tries to force plays sometimes and it is a determent to this teams play.


This season has hopefully taught management one thing i hope, and it's let the kids play and get rid of the old farts.


Addressing your point about Boston, I agree.  If the Bruins where missing pieces like we are they'd probably struggle too.  And when they did I sure hope their fan base wouldn't go blaming loses on their third line wingers and bottom pair defensemen.  Because that would be misguided...and stupid. 


Of course Bertuzzi makes bad plays, he's a washed up veteran who can hardly skate.  But replacing him with a kid who's clearly not ready for NHL competition doesn't help you at all either.  Because guess who else makes bad plays?  Kids who are in over their heads.  For the time being we've got nobody better to play on this patched up third line than Bert.  When Jurco's back it probably won't be an issue anymore.

I have to ask just for fun....what did this list look like end of second period? :)


1. If Legwand doesn’t get suspended, all is forgiven. (especially since he made Malkin look like the tool that he is)

2. Nyquist is amazing

3. Tatar is clutch

4. Emmerton was amazing on the kill

5. Quincey’s my hero, for now

6. Babcock is doing some good work

7. Jimmy made some big saves

8. Our D still kind of blows hard

9. DeKeyser was awesome

10. I think Smith might have been not bad

So glad Gus is in net, he is so much better then Jimmy and can definitely steal games for us, just look at his well deserved record.
