In Topic: Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

I think it's a great signing. Has anyone seen Alfredsson not bring it? He's a competitor. Vinny doesn't if he doesn't want to. Alfredsson f***in brings it, every game. That's not a stat. He wants to win.

Looks like playoff Howard is back. Yeehaw

Playoff Howard? Is that a different person?

You know that power plays are designed for the team with more men on the ice to score right?

You also understand that Teemu Selanne is a pretty prolific scorer in this league? Also please understand that he's more or less made a career out of scoring some goals like that.

Just because Howard didn't make a save doesn't mean he's terrible. It means there are two teams on the ice and they're both allowed to score.

He will pick up in

He will pick up in offensive production I would think. If you watch him play, as soon as he gets the puck he gets rid if it. He knows exactly where he's going as soon as he gets it, and after a while that will translate over into the offensive zone. He knows where his teamates are, the longer he's around the more familiar he'll get too. He may not pot 10 goals but I bet he gets a lot of assists, secondary assists.

I am very impressed with DeKeysers positional and defensive game but he seems to lack confidence offensively. He always looks like he is more worried about making a mistake and backs off early instead of getting in a good position to shoot or pinch in offensively.


The technical term for this is called "playing your position"

..You also see the philly guy watching out for his teammate? He was on him instantly...wish Detroit had someone like that now. Too too doesn't count since he is never on the ice...

You and me both. I wish we had the same consistant team Philly ice's every year.

Well, maybe not.

Also, I'd like to point out, everyone knows Philly is a scrappy team. Everyone knows if thet get fed up that someone on the Flyers will gladly hand their ass to them, or cheap shot them possibly. Even with all that info plain as day to everyone, that didn't stop Ryan White.
