In Topic: Should any of #91, #13, #40, #30 be retired? Poll/Discussion

It's all going to be fine, I am the MegaMillions winner and am in negotiations to buy controlling interest in The Detroit Red Wings Hockey Club. When the transfer is complete, things will start happening! Trust me, no kicking tires!

 

You mean we will add Joe Morrow so we can have another d man who is exactly like 4 of the other pluggers we have on D?   :lol:

If you won't put 13/40 up because they never did anything of significance without Lidstrom, then let's take Yzerman's jersey off the rafters. Dude was a playoff choke artist before Feds and Lidstrom reached their primes. He was also the 3rd wheel for all 3 cups.

 

If you're only putting up generational talents, then only Lidstrom and Howe belong in there. Yzerman is not one.

 

You don't have to answer this but I would be interested to know how old you are just so I can legitimize your points.  Yzerman played in the Gretzky/Lemieux era, 2 of the top 5 forwards ever.  The DUDE as you call him is 7th in all time scoring and managed to carve his own path and then humbly adjusted his game for the benefit of the team late in his career.  I'm 37 and if I had to list the generational talents of my youth Yzerman would 100% be on that list.

I love how people say Z is done.  He had 50 points last year. His role needs to change and I think he needs to fit more into Stevie's role late in his career.  He isn't even close to done.  That being said none of those guys listed belong in the rafters.

In ranking based on " holy s*** I've never seen a guy do that before " Dats would be #1 for me.  In the 80's Datsyuk would've been absolutely scary.  I digress.  I'm going to base mine on guys i've seen play ( Im 37) :

 

1. Lidstrom 

2. Yzerman

3. Fedorov 

4. Datsyuk  

5. Shanny

I thought Stamkos wanted to be the main guy?
Anyway, I can for sure see the appeal of playing in Buffalo or Toronto, but at the same time we are talking about what was the last place and 23rd place teams in the league as of a couple months ago. Up-and-coming is never a guarantee, and there's definitely a level of risk associated with signing the rest of your career away to one of those two teams. The Wings haven't been all that exciting the past few seasons, but at the very least we've been a consistent playoff team. For similar money, it might be more appealing to come to Detroit because we have a better track record of playing games that matter in April.

 

I think it's all about that right there. He's been close in T Bay and I really find it hard to believe that he will want to go way backwards to teams that have no chance of contending.  I hope that he will see with the Wings that with him and a couple of other moves we have a chance to contend.  Larkin and Stamkos going forward makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
