I hate him so much, I don't want to win a cup to keep him from winning. I was hoping he wouldn't play another game in the NHL and instead A THREE YEAR CONTRACT HERE?!?!?!
You sir are not a very good fan of the Wings. Tootoo is a Wing now, people need to get over it. Just think of what he may have done to Weber last year had he been on the Wings? I'm sure he would have done a better job than Bert did, even though Bert gave a decent effort.
He didn't play Emmerton much because Helm's injury made Emmerton pointless. Emmerton was in the lineup so that Abdelkader could play on the wing. When Abdelkader was moved up to center the 3rd line, Emmerton became irrelevant.
Sheahan isn't ready for the NHL yet. Andersson would fit better.
Not trying to be argumentative, but why would they bring Sheahan in on the last game of the season if they figured he wasn't ready? That's not very "Detroit-esque" if you know what I mean. I get giving him a taste, but like another poster said, he brings size and the willingness to play the grinder hockey that Emmerton may not be capable of doing.
I totally think this should be the lines against Nashville except I would put Miller and the 3rd line instead of Cleary. There was a game that Franzen, Miller, and Abby played together and they looked good and Mule scored a goal.
Agreed. Miller is better than Cleary right now, and really he has been all season. Miller has earned 3rd line minutes. Easily.
I'm not thrilled with sending him down. However I believe what was said above is true. We really don't want to lose E or Kindl to waivers. Plus letting Smith get first pair minutes in GR isn't terrible to keep him going until playoff time when he may be needed. I do not agree with Smith being in GR next year on any level however.
hello all. new to these forums and this one seems to be fairly hot right now so a good place to jump in. i have to admit i've been at times eager to see some things happen to shake things up in the past 5 games. however, when i look at something like shots on goal, it appears the boys are just not on target right now and things aren't bouncing their way. their defense hasn't been too bad outside of the caps and sharks game. jimmy has been fantastic.
i liked moving up nyquist for hudler tonight. even though he didn't do much, it was his first real pro game and he is going to have to adjust to the speed of the game. but we all saw him in preseason and he looks like he could be a very good addition to the roster. i'm not too fond of cleary's play right now, however i'm willing to wait a bit to see if he'll pick it up and play more like he did last year. i think what this team is missing right now is a dany heatley type player who is just a flat out scoring machine. maybe i'm wrong, but we haven't had a great scorer since Z had his conn smythe year. hopefully someone will wake up soon.
