Any rumors on how much and terms of contract? Howard was great on Sunday.
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
to no one's surprise, more injury news. the mule is out tonight with a hip problem.
Ken Holland is determined to get the young guys PT. That means the vets have to come up lame.
Thank you, Denicos.
This is the 50th time we've played St. Louis this season, correct?
of course he is, so glad we gave him that huge contract, SO FUCKING GLAD
At least he hasn't been concussed like Hossa.
i admit the mule is playing decent so far this year, but the mule has been coming up pretty "lame" the last couple of years.
UPDATE: The Red Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist from GR and placed Todd Bertuzzi on IR.
WOTS is bertuzzi is a long, long ways away from returning to the ice for this shortened season.
No Datsyuk tonight either. That's the reason Nyquist was called up.
2nd line is Abs-Filppula-Nyquist
2nd PP line is Tatar-Nyquist-Andersson I believe.
This will be fun.
Jesus...horrible luck there. Unreal.
The reports I read sound like they want him back asap. My expertise in his injury is that:
#1) he is lucky he has played as long as he has.
#2) if he undergoes surgery again he will not play professional hockey again.
#3) Even with the best non-surgical treatment he is just buying time until he needs surgery. A surgery that only intendeds on buying more time until a more invasive surgery is required.
I was at the game. So sloppy. Really missed Datsyuk, Franzen. Defense was especially sloppy. The power play is an eye sore too. Meh...
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Nyquist heading back to grand rapids. Looks like the Tatar-Andersson-Nyquist line isn't meant to be yet.

The Doctor is in:
I thought Nyquist was with Abdelkader and Filppula? The third line looked like Tatar - Andersson - Eaves to me.
Also, did Filppula suffer an injury during the lockout? He hasn't looked nearly as good a skater as he has during the past couple of seasons.
I sure hope Holland has been at least trying to work some trades.
Why? The Wings aren't 1 or 2 pieces away from competing for a cup. They are best off just letting this season go on by and not mortgage the future for a failed cup run.
Yes, those were the lines last night. That was just the line I personally wanted to see since it worked so well in Grand Rapids. It's ridiculous that we're talking about Abdelkader getting second line minutes. He simply can't produce anywhere near that level.
And yes, Filppula suffered an injury during the lockout. There was question whether he would be ready for the start of the year. I think it was an ankle or knee, but I can't say for certain.
short season, anything can happen.
They can find players other teams miss, they wouldnt mortage the future, its not like MLB where guys can spend years in the minors before breaking thru
The wings have as good a shot as 98% of the league for the cup.
I watched a Kings team barely make the playoffs and hoist the cup. There's no reason to think that Detroit can't do the same thing. Just make the playoffs and beat the Blackhawks and cruise to a cup.
Trade for veteren defenseman and Jerome Iginla then hopefully Mrazek can take the Wings to the Cup!
Mrazek is not ready to be a full time nhl goalie, so you can forget that idea.
Not if Datsyuk, Bertuzzi, Helm and Franzen are hurt. The defense is also very lackluster beyond Kronwall and Ericsson.
