Why do you feel the need to argue everything anyone says? It's almost as if you analyze everything that's written here and try to pick out that one word that you can argue... So what if Datsyuk only assisted on 6 of Tatar's goals? Maybe "fed" wasn't the proper word to use, but can you argue that having Datsyuk on his line doesn't open up some space for Tatar, allowing him to score more? Or are you arguing that Nyquist shouldn't be on a line with Zetterberg for that same reason, despite being 3rd on the team in goals? Or are you seriously just arguing that one misuse of the word "fed"?...


I'm sure you agree that Tatar should remain on Datsyuk's wing, so why bother researching such stats just to refute what he was saying? The premise of his argument still stands. Datsyuk and Tatar should be locked on a line together, and I believe Zetterberg and Nyquist should be locked on a line together for the same reason; they work really well together. On the other wing you can throw any one of Cole, Abdelkader, Helm, or Jurco and I'd be fine with that.

mvanpop... 6M for 8 years?... I hope that's a joke...

Fur real. 8 mil for 6 years and a full NTC is probably better

#2578118 Hockey's equivalent of the triple play, the automatic goal

What am I not understanding here? I don't get how this compares to a triple play in baseball at all...

So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.

With backman retreating back I could live with that ... Janmark has upside for 2 yrs and now it's like whatever let's just give him away for an old ufa cause we still have good prospects

Rather of traded him if we had to in a deal that would be more than a ufa

In 2 yrs if we get outed again 1st round we lost 2 2nds janmark backman jarnkrok for 2 guys who quite possibly don't return and a 3rd rounder

And I just noticed we gave away 3 swedish guys ...are we suddenly giving up on the swedes? Lol




Two decades of success vs online forum poster...



Yea, I know who I'm going with.

This isnt the extremely veteran teams of old. With the infusion of young talent you have to roll with mental lapses from time to time.

Same. But you know Jimmy will get the start. I'll be VERY surprised if he doesn't. I want Jimmy to do well, just like many of us do. Nothing against him whatsoever, but I think Gus could push him out of the #1 spot if given the chance.


Jonas Gustavsson couldn't push James Reimer out of the #1 spot in Toronto give copious chances.  I'm not sure he's going to outplay Jimmy over the long haul.

Hopefully it doesn't mess with his confidence, the skill is clearly there.


Is it? Other than size, what are people seeing in game from him?

#2570227 2/11 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

Just got back from the game.  Tough to be a road fan for that one.  We didn't have much life in the beginning and when Mrazek gave up that goal two minutes in, I thought "Crap, he's going to have one of THOSE kind of games isn't he?".  He was having issues with the puck, the defense wasn't really helping much at all.  We didn't show any signs of life till the third.  Despite getting creamed by the Pens, I still had a pretty decent night at the game.  The Pens fans gave me a lot of ribbing, but not mean spirited by any means.  The guy behind my 7 year old was very vocal for the whole game and he bought my son an ice cream when the Pens made 4-0.  I met a ton of Wings fans there and they were all cool.  I guess that's how it is when you're a fan of the road team, anyone wearing the same color as you, is now your friend. lol  The highlight of my night was the pregame warm up.  We got right up to the glass and Luke Glendening slammed himself right into the glass and bumped into my son startling him and the look on his face was priceless.  I think Luke did it on purpose too.  So while it wasn't the outcome I was hoping for, it was still pretty fun.  I rarely get to see the Wings up close (this is only my 6th game in 29 years of being a fan) so that's always a treat.  Next game I go to though, I want to be at the Joe.  Surround myself with some Wings fans for a change. lol

I feel like tatar would have went, but the others I agree. 
I think nyquist may have gotten a call over tatar

Someone told Tatar got the call but he didn't want to go
