In Topic: Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Best two-way player.  Outside of this forum, not many people have said he's a better player than Crosby or Malkin, or should be rated higher.  
 
Seems like people now think Tayes is the best two-way player in the game.  

Most complete player. I feel like I've heard it said he's the most rounded player for a few years now. Whether that translates into being "better" than Malkin and Crosby and their offensive numbers is obviously debatable.

Crosby and makin are still better than toews IMO. The thing that he is better is in leadership.

Toews is a better two way player than them. Is that even in question? I don't recall Malkin and Crosby being highly regarded for their defensive game. Or have I been under a rock too long?


On topic though I don't have the freshest memories of Fedorov. I was pretty young. I think Datsyuk gets in the hall of fame though.

Took the words right out of my fingers.
She is beautiful.  I can't believe she's 75. 

Was thinking the same thing. I can't believe she's 75!

This is what I see facing Boston for Game 1
 
Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader
Nyquist-Weiss-Franzen
Tatar-Sheahan-Alfredsson
Miller-Helm-Cleary
Glendening/Andersson
 
Kronwall-Ericsson
DeKeyser-Quincey
Smith-Kindl/Lashoff/Marchenko
 
Pretty, eh.

I think this is pretty much right but I'm not too thrilled about it. I can't stand Abdelkader in the top 6.

Bans didn't like tootoo? 
 
I'm a bit more worried that the Tootoos are honeymooning in Hawaii and Herlmer is with them.  Now that's carrying the load above and beyond the call of duty.
 
Or maybe this is a different occasion.
 
Or maybe Herlmer and his lady split and Tootoo is teaching him how to pick up chicks. 
Commence the motorboat jokes.  I'm done for the day.
 
EDIT: was misspelling Herlmer as Hermler.  Can't have that.

I was thinking this was weird too. And what's Tootoo's wife doing on Herlmer's shoulders?

With how slow it's been on here lately and the crappy day I'm having at work seeing this makes me a happy camper. I know there's always lots of pessimism around here but I gotta say I can't wait for the season to start and watching the wings play, mediocre or not. Go wingssss!


Edit: and to say something more relevant I'm surprised at how much he got, but definitely not upset about it. Worth it I think even if just to show him the Wings have some faith in him and build a good relationship going forward.
