In reality there is no such a thing as the Right D man for the Right price. No need to say that regardless of the position played, every UFA is being overpaid. Overpaying for the premiere D man is perfectly fine. And one more thing. Don't we, the loyal fans pay for some, if not the most of their salaries ? We want some results. I think we all have been patient enough waiting for our team to get what it needs to be competitive and be an elite team. I think we deserve that. Go Wings and get this guy already.
Alfie: please retire. Your legs are gone, your back is sore, and you are not worth 5 million per season, or 1 million per season. Go back to Sweden and play there. We are not a SC contender right now and tbh you would only hold us back for another year. You have been a great player for a long time. HOF is ready to take you in. retire and enjoy the rest of your life.
And please take Franzen with you ! To retirement of course not to HOF.
The Penguins are getting everybody back for this game. They really want to prevent Wings from making playoffs. I hope the Wings play the best game of the year and crush Penguins in their own crib. That would put a real scare in their heads.Go Wings ! Win this one for the fans.
The penguins would be dumb not to ice their best possible roster. They know first hand what the wings can do in the playoffs and probably would much rather play colombus than Detroit in the first round. People around here talk as if the wings have the worst team in the league, but when I talk to fans of other teams they have a different opinion. Many people are saying they are one of the scariest teams going into the playoffs, they are playing phenomenal hockey lately, finally getting injured players back and more in the playoffs and are only going to get better when the rest come back. I'm not worried about Pittsburgh, in fact exacting some sweet revenge for 2009 would be wonderful, I wonder if Sidney will cry.
