I agree with Z.

#2329536 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

End the lockout. Come to an agreement. Stop screwing us the fans.

This has gone beyond ridiculous. The 4th out of the 4 major American sports leagues is undergoing its 4th work-stoppage in just over two decades.

Well apparently, Sergei is playing in the Alumni Game. S**t just got real.

You must have misread my post.

The discussion was about why Sawchuk was in the rafters, despite not playing his whole career in Detroit. I said Sawchuk was one of the 5 best goalies ever. Sure, Fedorov was one of the best forwards in his era, but he's not even one of the 20 best forwards in history.


When Sergei was in his prime, can you really say that? I've asked several people who they would rather have in their prime, Fedorov or Datsyuk. 90% of them said Fedorov.

Well, hes not on the hockey news best 100 of all time. Yzerman is #78. Tough argument we have here.


That's surprising. Fedorov was a phenomenal talent, comparable to Pavel Bure.

My second favorite player ever. I was upset when he left, but don't hold it against him in the long run. His career did become somewhat irrelevant after he left, so it ended up a bad move for him more than the Wings.

I would retire his number if I was running the team, but based on their precedent I wouldn't (I sound like a judge). The guys they retired basically spent their entire career with the Wings. I mean they didn't even retire Red Kelly's number, likely for that reason. It's a strict policy, but that's how the Wings do it.


Terry Sawchuk also played for Toronto, Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.

I won't lie I had the white Nike roller blades cause of Fedorov lol


I also wore #91 playing hockey growing up because of Sergei.

Reflecting on his NHL career, I know he'll always be remembered as a Wing. I was extremely bitter after he left, and I was also at his first game back in Detroit on December 3, 2003 where he was booed mercilessly every time he touched the puck.

Does he deserve to have his #91 retired by Detroit? Ultimately, I'd have to vote yes.

Sour grapes guys, sour grapes. Don't worry, we'll take it easy on you this season :tease:


I must have missed something....what position do you play for the Wild?

Does this mean an offer sheet is being drawn up for Weber?
