when eaves is ready ABBY should ride the pine. INVISIBLE.

Even though he doesn't play a huge role on this team, it's pretty easy to see that the Wings could use Eaves right now. He works hard on the PK and has pretty decent chemistry with Helm and Draper. We could have used more effective 3rd and 4th lines last night.

#2123099 Seabrook extended for 5 years at $5.8 million per year

It's okay. They'll just loan him to a Swiss team if this contract becomes a problem next season.

#2115275 Isles vs Pens

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 February 2011 - 12:10 AM

I just can't believe Hailey. Fought Talbot. Took him down. Went straight after Johnson.

From the video it looked to me like Johnson challenged Haley. In any case, I kind of like seeing these types of games every once in a while but after a certain point you have to just quit the circus and play hockey.

#2107458 Weber and the Wings

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 30 January 2011 - 08:34 PM

I don't see Nashville ever trading him to a division rival, especially the Wings. If he became a UFA maybe then Detroit would have a shot at him but we will never see him play with Lidstrom before Lids retires.

#2086140 Discipline for referee Devorski?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 28 December 2010 - 12:03 PM

I've never really liked Devorski anyway, but I'm guessing all of those penalties called on the Jackets were legitimate. I mean, hell, with how little Columbus fans know about hockey he could have had his arm up on a delayed penalty and they could have thought that was giving them the finger.

Say what you want about Chris Osgood, I don't think I've smiled that big after watching a Wings game in a long while. Congrats, Ozzie!

#2084067 Frederick Meyer levels Milan Lucic

Jack Edwards has to be the worst/most annoying play-by-play guy in the league. And that's including Jeff Rimer.

#2074086 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 December 2010 - 02:27 PM

Hopefully this doesn't become a big deal because it's not at all. He just got ahead of himself while thinking of the word, "way" and "white" slipped out. I was expecting something worse, and I think you all know which word I'm talking about...

#2056749 Hudler + Helm

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 03 November 2010 - 04:03 PM

Hudler isn't an NHL caliber player anymore. I can't wait to shift him off for a sixth round pick. He's overpaid, and unmotivated. He's just going to drag everyone down that plays around him. Keep him in the pressbox unless we have a rash of injuries.

I agree. Modano will start putting up points if he has Abby and Cleary as his wingers. Hudler doesn't fit the style of this team anymore.

That hit is clearly shoulder-to-shoulder. What is the debate here?

I can't believe I didn't notice how funny the title of this thread is when I first clicked on it.


#2046428 Leafs are in 1st place overall!

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 14 October 2010 - 01:21 PM

For the record they had 14 shots on goal last night.

That is just abysmal.

I didn't watch the game, but it's the quality of the shots, not the quantity that counts. As long as they're going in, I guess.

#2042952 First Impressions

I agree with most of your points except for the 4th line. They did their job and kept the puck in the offensive zone for the majority of the time they were out. No one expects them to score in every game, so they'll get their chances eventually. But yeah, I'm feeling really good about this team. Cleary just looked so much faster and you can tell he's out to prove himself.

#1998588 How much better would we be looking with Leino and Kopecky

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 June 2010 - 12:10 PM

Hindsight is 20/20, my friend. Besides, Kopecky still sucks and Leino played himself out of Detroit and his attitude didn't help either. I think we'll all soon forget about the Leino trade once Hudler is back. I have a feeling that he's going to surprise a lot of naysayers.

#1997948 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 10 June 2010 - 11:49 PM

I don't know why, but after this series I actually don't mind Pronger and hate the Blackhawks. The 'Hawks are just one of those teams that is cocky and young and you think they'll be put in their place but then they ended up winning the Cup, which just irritates me to no end. I mean, they deserved it in the end, but, just like last year, it made me sick to see a certain team win the Cup. Also, Burish's comment just makes him look like an idiot as well. Moving on.
