Yep.  42 seconds.  Or 46.  Whenever the "chorus" started. I don't even want to scroll back up to verify the exact time...

Keep staying away  :lol:

LOL!  Yeah, that would be me, too.  Seems like I only go to see losses and injuries. So, I decided to stay home.

If given the ideal choice i would prefer a winger leaving dat an z separated centerig their own lines.

Oh I agree 100%.  I just feel  Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen makes a really good second line.  I think grabbing a top RW and going with Tats/Abdelkader - Datsyuk - Scoring RW  best way to address the team's issues.


I was trying to address the concerns of those that stated we need a new #2 Center to make up for the injuries to Z and D.


Nick Foligno might be a good target. Young, UFA at the end of the year..

From what I understand, Legwand is playing the wing on the first line. 

Also, what do you all think of the list of centers that are going to be UFA's at the end of the year (the rentals you usually see moved at the deadline/in-season)?

Vermette seems to be the only viable option that would be moved.  You don't usually see teams in a playoff position trading away their top-6 talent.


Weiss+Prospect+Pick? Does it cost you an additional NHL player too? Helm, Kindl, etc.?  Do they want a defensive prospect?


I don't think he's signing an extension to stay out there.  It's way far from home (Quebec City), the team is NOT trending upwards, and he's 32-years-old- he's not getting many more chances to play for a Stanley Cup or Team Canada.  Flights are $300 round-trip from Detroit to home and back, his family can drive down for the weekend, etc. etc.

Short of going to Montreal, I don't see another team that is trending upward and still has star players like Detroit.  Come here, be the #2 center, and make a huge push to win a Cup.

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen

Tatar - Vermette - Nyquist
Helm - Sheahan - Abdelkader

Miller - Glendening - Callahan

Andersson - Cleary


Send Jurco down to Grand Rapids.  Something's not clicking this year and I want him to get better, not float about at average.  Call up Callahan, he's really having an outstanding year.


Kronwall - Ericsson

Smith - DeKeyser

Quincey - Ouellet




Grand Rapids doesn't change too, too much.


Pulkkinen - Nosek (healthy) - Jurco

Hoggan - Athanasiou - Campbell


Jensen  - Marchenko
Backman - Paetsch
Evans - Sproul



Does it cost you Jurco to get a top-4 Defensemen?  + Kindl, Ferraro, or a pick?


Sigh.  I'm glad I'm not the GM.
