He was fine last year in the beginning too, he hit a wall around January though. It's about that longevity. The less he plays the longer he will last with those legs you saw yesterday. 

 

Add in the World Cup this year, if Blashill doesn't ration his minutes, he'll be burned out by Christmas.


In Topic: Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

25 June 2016 - 12:40 PM

This was a nice trade for both teams.  Arizona got the prospect they coveted and got rid of a player who'll be on LTIR, and it only cost them a 3rd round compensatory pick and the taking on of a cap hit they have PLENTY of room to cover but won't cost them a dime.  Detroit got rid of that cap hit and turned 1 pick into 2 while taking on an LTIR contract they can afford to pay.  The trade itself, IMO, is a tie.  The shootout decision will be determined with the development of the 3 traded picks and what Holland can do with the cap room.

Cleaning this mess starts and finishes with KH.

 

I never thought Ilitch would get rid of Holland, EVER, but he fired Dombrowski (Tigers GM), so there is hope yet.

Could be, in part, that there are former Detroiters spread all across the country...
