    I can understand.

    Hopefully someone will break the southern stranglehold on the Cup this year. Nashville is a strong contender to keep it there. Nothing against the south, but it's ICE hockey for pete's sake.

    This is the first time I've seen this many names linked to the Red Wings. It is from the 16th of this month:

    Great Win by the Wings tonight against Chicago.

    They didn't have energy in the first period, but Hasek bailed them out.

    Then Datsyuk and Zetterberg took over. :biggrin:

    BTW word out of the GM meetings is that Florida wants way to much for Bertuzzi or Roberts at this point in time.
  8. i dont know if st louis is going to bail on what they have. it may be interesting. they still have an outside shot of the playoffs. theyve acutally been real strong the last 30 games or so.

    that being said trading with in the division is silly...

    Yeah it is to a point.

    But if the contracts are expiring, that's not as big a deal so long as you don't give up an arm and a leg for a guy (like Nashville did)

    interesting. Detroit will have a ton of UFAs this off-season.

    I really hope Detroit gets Guerin. Lapointe would be ok as an enforcer, but he doesn't score much anymore. I really hope they avoid Tkachuk.
  12. the preds are a struggling franchise, they cant get people to watch. and its a good team.

    that being said its a gamble, though i think its one that takes them from a deep playoff team to a team that has a legit cup chance. records, blah blah blah, they didnt have "it" before. foppa brings so much to the table.

    ive mentioned the wings ufa issues in the cbj thread and how they were able to roll back salaries as a percentage post lock out and never capitalized on having a club that has a team thats well above the payroll. though those guys are mostly over the hill and on the downside. all of those guys will be over 35 next year. with 13 being the exception, and since i know you dont like him send him down the rd to the nat...

    Well I'd take Maltby and Lang back, but Schneider is on the downside and isn't even paired with Lidstrom anymore. He still has a great shot, but Detroit is loaded with young defenseman and he's just holding a kid back at this point.

    As for Datsyuk, it really depends on the playoffs. If he disappears again, his price will come down and he'll probably be back in Detroit. If he shows up, Detroit is going to have to pay to keep him.
    the format im sure will be goofy but you can click the link

    Holmstrom was just resigned a couple days ago to a 3 year deal....

    you can bet that Kronwall will be back next year as well (I think he's restricted anyway)...

    Lang is that good 2nd center that every team needs. He's a soft European who never gets physical, but he's got some great skill as well.
