All I know is Tatar better be on one of the top 2 lines from now on (even when Pav and Hank return). He continues to prove game after game that he can be a difference maker and a game changer. Time for Abby to head back to the 3rd line where he belongs.
AGREED. The guy is a baller. Alfie, Tatar, Nyqust, Franzen as top line wingers from here on. Woulnd't mind leaving Franzen at C and pushing Z to wing again. Franzen has looked great. Move Weiss to Helm's wing to see if he can get his wheels going.
Maybe what they should do is trade #11 back to Ottawa if he doesn't pickup his game. This team needs to quite signing these old Vets cause they never play the way they can and should. #11 should start paying like his worth his 5.5 Million dollars if not he should give some of that money back to the team like Hasek did a few years back.
I wish players would start playing like Maurice The Rocket Richard did & Gordie Howe did two players that give 150% every game. Players like #11 are here for the money and not the Stanley Cup if for the Cup he'd give 150% every game.
These guys are professionals they need to start playing like they deserve to be in the NHL! The New NHL is bad. Their was nothing wrong with the 90's NHL Game! I say get rid of #11 & #90 what have they done lately? But get Injured! They shouldn't have signed them they should have signed #24 and #51 and bought back the same team they had last season.
The Coach needs to start coaching for once and he needs to start being more like Scotty Bowmen was and start showing some tough love to these supposed to be Detroit Red Wings Players. I'm very happy that Detroit Red Wings Won Finally they need to keep it up.
Are you kidding me? Alfredsson has come here and done exactly what was expected of him. He has 14 pts. in 19 Games and is our third leading scorer. Take a lap.
This article analyzes Tatar's Corsi rating and the ratings of of players he skates with. Bottom line, this does not make any sense. Is there really not a single player who is more deserving of time I'm the press box? I'm not usually one to speculate, but I'm really beginning to think Babs dislikes Tatar.
OMG Guys! Sammy's playing tonight! I am sooooooo freakin excited! He's gonna get a Gordie Howe HT and then wink seductively at all the ladies in the crowd! And then straddle his stick and fly around the rafters like a FRICKIN WIZARD! Sammy for president!
I'm kind of surprised it was Tootoo. Sammy next in line for this please. What could it hurt? No one takes him and we are back where we are at. Tootoo has more use than he does at this point.
Waiving Samuelsson would (because nobody's going to claim him) provide only $100K in cap relief.
Speaking of [D]evils...I still kinda miss Brunner. And I've always been against signing Jagr, but he signed with NJ for, what, 2 million? I would've gladly taken him over Cleary.
$2.5m per season. He spurned the Wings' offer because he wanted more money and guaranteed top-six time. Now he's on one of the worst teams in the league, one that is also near-bankrupt and is thus unlikely to improve next season.
