What? Obviously the return on investement on Colo, Sammy and Gustavsson is still up for debate because they have been injured. Tootoo has done everything they would've wanted out of him so far..he's been physical, dropped the gloves and changed the flow of games when we needed it. Bert is what he is, 3rd line guy..10-15 goals a year..good contract..good team guy. Quincey would be tolerable if we didnt give up a 1st for him..that one hurts. Huskins was an emergency guy playing for peanuts and doing everything they asked of him. Get over the Parise and Suter thing..you don't get it..they were never playing here..we offered them huge money and they wanted to play in Minny.
I agree wholeheartedly. I don't mind these 'the team going forward' threads.... even if some people are seriously delusional about the quality of Detroit's prospects one way or the other. What I am absolutely sick of is the fact that people can't drop the Parise/Suter thing. It's not like they didn't get significant offers from Detroit. I believe that the best effort was made to get them. Everything doesn't always go your way, though. EVEN IF something could have been done differently and Parise and Suter would be here (which I don't believe), it DOES NOT MATTER. They aren't here. It is over. And, all the complaining in the world about it will not make the Red Wings a better or worse team going forward. It is done - move on.
