#2548431 11/9 GDT - Tampa Bay 4 at Detroit 3 (SO) - 6:00 PM EST

Darren "hands of stone" Helm on the shootout? Uh, was Z injured at the end of the game? How bout Franzen? I'm pretty sure that either of them has scored more goals in ONE season that Helm has in his entire career... How can you honestly leave Z on the bench to watch as a 3rd/4th line center takes the final spot in the shootout? Seriously Babcock, what's next? Quincey? Mrazek? Maybe it's time he did go elsewhere...

Kindl SUCKS. He has SUCKED for years. He needs to be released, traded, pushed out of the plane, whatever. I've never seen someone make so many bad passes, dumb plays, stupid decisions and giveaways in one game in my life. There is a reason he has been a career scratch/7th D the entire time he has been with the Wings. Bring up Oulette or Sproul, or even a really good Bantam player to replace him.

Haha, he did it a few times, too! Oh I bet he felt embarrassed when he realized they were live.

Couldn't have happened to a better guy; Phaneuf is the tool of all tools to the point where his Calgary teammates didn't care if he was traded for two pucks and an ice scraper as long as he was gone.

Props to Big E, he answered the bell and gave Ott a few good ones. Maybe he'll become a little more physical as he gets older and become Fischer 2.0

I do not feel sorry for them whatsoever. Suffer, suffer, suffer and then suffer through some more losing seasons leafblowers. It's karma, pure and simple, they are ALWAYS overhyped, shoved down our throats here in Canada, and have made the most horrific hockey decisions in the NHL. They've made their bed of s***, now they can lie in it and enjoy the smell.

#2067988 Babs says Miller and Eaves will both play

I agree with you there. What we'll get in return for him will be little, but something nonetheless.

The "return" isn't really the "who" we get in exchange for Piddler, but rather the CAP SPACE! We'll free up close to 3mil plus a roster space that we can use to sign a 5-6mil/yr guy at or before the trade deadline. How good would a 30 goal scorer who brings some nastiness look on the third line with Cleary and Modano for the playoffs? Hudler's cap space and roster spot could make that happen.

I could care less if we get a pop tart and glass of milk for the little traitor... he can run back to the KHL with his tail between his legs and play over there which is where he went last year anyways.

It's addition by subtraction in this case and I WANT a big time scorer on the third line to help balance out the top three lines come playoff time.

off topic...but how do they take pictures like this so close to the ice?

Probably with a camera. :P

Before this season, Modano would have been on my list.

Johan Franzen <_<

Torres and Hudler please.

Raffi Torres at 2.5/yr for 2 yrs would be nice. Torres and Hudler would really improve the 2nd and third lines and both would come at under 3mil/yr for the next two years. Dumping J-Softy and Berslowzi along with Lids taking a pay cut (3.5-4mil/yr for 2yrs would be great) would get them both on board no problem. Meech can go elsewhere, Kindl comes up, Eaves is re-signed, Homer is re-signed, Miller is let go, Abdelkader is brought up, Lilja is re-signed for around the same money for 2yrs. These changes along with a "healthy" year from our top guys and a better year out of Filppula would go a long ways toward staying at the top of the conference rather than battling it out at the bottom.
