Franzen has a playoff record like no other. Keep him always.
Filp has been an awesome alround performer on the ice, and this year he is having the breakout production year we knew he was capable of having. He does more things better than Nash. Keep him.
We have a ton of depth, a ton, wich translates to assets.
Hudler has been very good this year, but we ultimately want to get bigger, stronger, faster, and score more. Plus, he gets knocked off the puck too easily come playoff time. And he let us know in his own terms (by going to KHL at the last minute after we already made player movements to committ to him) that there is no family loyalty between he and the Wings.
Hudler will atleast alleviate some of the scoring loss for Columbus. The fact that he is too small, slow, and weak for playoff hockey should be a moot point with Columbus.
Package Hudler and Kindl with a balance of picks and prospects that we are comfortable with and hope for the best. If it doesn't work, we have lost nothing. If it does work, we have lost minimal and gained more than we ever could have hoped for.
Sell, Kenny, sell that deal!
package Hudler with big E and send them to Columbus. but it wont happen. Just a wish.
Shanny explained in great detail the reasoning. The comparison with the line, and height difference between the two players, and the obvious launching of himself. I doubt he would have gotten anything other than a 2500 dollar slap, but history caught up to him on this one.
Shanny is doing a great job out there. That contact was totally unnecessary. Good that Big E did not get hurt.
Here is something for fun.
With a large number of NHL players with Italian background I have put this team together.
Actually it may be a pretty good team.

I think team is playing with a lot more passion the we have been seeing lately. Wings also show that they can play any style of agame, which makes it harder for other teams to come up with a perfect game plan against Wings.
1. Keep checking the status of the shipment, as said earlier it may not have been possible to ship on the "holiday" monday (make up for new year's)
2. The website appears to put out the effort in which you can talk to them about the problem, so keep trying to contact them so that they are aware of the problem.
3. I notice a "Trustwave" symbol on the bottom of the page which SHOULD indicate the site can be trusted and is a legitimate online retailer, however the "click to validate" didn't work for me. That there is a definite red flag.
Basically, you have a legitimate concern here, as their only contact comes in the form of an automated email... regardless, keep tracking your shipment in case you jumped the gun.
Thanks everyone for input. I have received an email from an personal gmail account in very bad English(much worse than mine) and a fake USPS tracking number. I was charged a different amount, from a totally different site, plus international transaction fee from China. I don't worry abouth the money so much. I will get it back. I just want the community to be aware. Thanks
