Just got back from the game. My 6 year old was a very good road fan for us chanting "Lets Go Wings" for every single "Lets Go Pens". A kid across the aisle from us was waving a terrible towel and he waved it at my son when the Pens scored. When Datsyuk scored, he goes "Not waving that towel now huh?!" I was in shock, he's usually pretty mild mannered, but he was really getting into it. Everyone around us just laughed, except the kid with the towel. Here are a few good pics I got:

That's a matter of opinion and I disagree. I've been lobbying for years to put Helm on the wing, his speed will be much more of a threat along the boards then down the middle in my opinion. Sheahan definitely isn't a 4th line center, 3rd and hopefully 2nd in a couple years. Glendening is the exact type of player I would want on my 4th line.
Reports indicate that San Jose wanted to trade Thronton earlier this offseason, but Thornton said no (he has a no trade clause). I think this is SJ's way of getting him to back-down from that stance.
Kind of a d*** move if you ask me, Thornton loves SJ, and as a result took a hometown discount (6.75mil over next 3 years), then 5 months later they try to trade him??? 7 months later strip him of the C??? You didn't want him, don't sign him. As much as fans hate Holland for the Cleary signing, these are the types of things players remember. A team like Detroit has a reputation of taking care of its own, SJ now look like a team who don't give a crap.
