In Topic: Filpula and Cleary's point totals

Filppula and Cleary both have the potential to put up points, but the Wings are just so damn good its hard to crack the top 6, and if you don't you get 2/3 of whatever is left after the equivalent of two #1 lines worth of ice time is used up.

I believe Flip's point totals would be better if Hossa wasn't here, so as long as we're winning I'm not going to complain too much. We all know he has the talent, so if someone in the top 6 goes down, we know they're there to step up. But then again, Huds is having a great season, so Flip should step it up soon.

According to Andy Strickland:

Sources close to Marian Hossa and Marian Gaborik tell me the two plan to make themselves a package deal come July first. The two are the best of friends and are hopeful they'll be playing together after this season.

A major reason Hossa elected to turn down millions of dollars from Pittsburgh and take the one year offer from Detroit is to not only put himself in position to win a Cup, but to become a UFA at the same time Gaborik enters the open market.


Before the season even started, I had assumed Hossa wouldn't be back, we just can't afford to keep him and the rest of the team intact. Now that his numbers have exploded it only reinforces my thoughts before the season. Lets just enjoy him as a Wing while he is here.

I actually prefer to know he won't be back so we don't have to keep worrying how we'll keep him and everyone else.

As for him and Gaborik coming together as a package deal, I'm not sure I believe this one, but I guess its possible. That would possibly be $20 million tied up in 2 players each season. As a GM, that would really make putting the rest of the team together very difficult.

I am tired of hearing people say this. Build a better product that retains as much resale value as a foreign car and I will buy American.

There are too many problems with the way the big three have conducted themselves the last 10 years. I don't owe them anything, least of all my buisness.

I hear ya there, but all I ask is you consider them next time you look to buy a car. Detroit will never lose its stigma unless you give them a chance. Their advances in quality are proof that they want the American car buyer back, so all we need now is to have the American car buyer's perception improve of Detroit's 3.

What is your point?

And no, I didn't vote for Obama either, I voted third party. It scares me we have ignorant people in this country like yourself.

I'm surprised as an obvious McCain supporter that you know how to use the internet.

Nothing was out of context. Just paraphrased.

Are you Sarah Palin?

He may have had some typos, but what in his message implied he was a McCain supporter? That kind of division is exactly what this country does NOT need right now.

And for the record before you label me, I didn't vote for Mccain
