Just typed 'porn stars and stds' on Yahoo, and found this...http://www.laweekly....ucla-study-says
Granted - they get tested alot, but there appears to a number of cases to suggest otherwise.

I like how there was an editors note at the bottom of the article you referenced that basically refutes your entire statement.

I think we'll be able to beat their backup.

Also, finishing the "death month" on the schedule at 6-2-2 would be incredibly impressive. 5-3-2 not so much. Even tho its only one game difference, i think it says alot about our start if we finish October 6-2-2 after playing all these playoff teams.

That being said, 3-2 Wings, (Tatar, Smith PPG, Datsyuk).

Jones played tonight, Quick will be in tomorrow.

I don't think anyone is saying he's worthless... I'll speak for myself and say that he definitely is not worth that deal in my books.

Dickie said that he didn't want him unless Buffalo was willing to take out our garbage. That's severely undervaluing him.



This. In terms of objective value, it's probably not that far off, but with respect to the Red Wings' talent pool they need to keep all of the promising young centers they can. Outside of Datsyuk and Z, you hope that Sheahan has 2C upside, but after the it's kind of grim looking. Hopefully, one of Janmark, Athanasiou or Nosek can pan out, but I wouldn't want to ride on that. At wing we have Nyquist, Tatar, Mantha, Jurco, Pulkinen - on defense Ouellet, Sproul, Backman and Marchenko. Those all seem like more surefire bets to me than the aforementioned centers. I just don't think the team should deal from an area of weakness.

Regarding the center prospects, yea its a problem. But right now we have NHL centermen. We don't have a single right shooting offensive defenceman, a fact that Babcock has bemoaned for years. We do have an overabundance of dman prospects that look like they will for sure be NHL players someday, but not right now. We will have to trade at least one of them in the next two years or so because there simply isn't enough roster space for all of them. Why don't we trade our highly promising center prospect to address an urgent need now, and then use our highly promising defenceman prospects to address a POTENTIAL need later?

Myers has more points in his career than Smith, DeKeyser, Kindl, and Lashoff COMBINED. In about half the number of games, too.

He had a down year during the lockout, but last year he scored .35 ppg, .21ppg, .42ppg, .46ppg, and .59ppg the years before. Thats pretty good, especially considering that he's spent his entire career on the undisputed worst team in the league.

Im not saying that he's the next Lidstrom, but to say that he is completely worthless is wrong.
