What does one have to do to "deserve" ice time on a particular line? IMO Babcock's plan all along has been to develop Abdelkader into a power forward, and part of that development required going head to head with the top lines on our opponents, which means top-six ice time even when he wasn't scoring at nearly a top-six pace.

That sounds vaguely correct. Tnx.

I've been scouring the web for proof but can't find it, but I am positive that about a decade ago, a Wings afternoon game (I think it was against the Stars) ended in OT, NBC wrapped up the broadcast and went to golf, and then they had to go back to the game because the OT goal was disallowed and OT resumed. Does anyone else remember this happening? Unfortunately I can't recall who scored the disallowed goal.


In Topic: Next Number to be retired

I believe Datsyuk is a lock for the Hall of Fame -- he is regarded by many of his peers (and has been for many years) as the best and most-respected player in the NHL. Z has a shot at the Hall if he plays out the remainder of his contract as captain and stays relatively healthy, and even moreso if he raises the Cup another time or two.

 

As for retiring their numbers, I think both guys will get that, and strong chance for Fedorov as well -- he was the best player in the game for a while, and (like Datsyuk) the best two-way player in the game for a long while.

Here I am, number9. I vote for . . . Homer. A truly unique player -- literally no one else has ever been really like him. Some guys (like Dino C) did some of the things he did, but only Homer had the complete package of screening and annoying goalies, deflecting deadly shots and digging the puck out of the corner the way he did.

 

Paul Woods ranks in my top five, tho.
