Default The Detroit Red Wings Discussion Thread

I don't know how many of you guys watch the Wings, or how many of you care about the Wings, but there is a thread for the Pistons, so now I made one for the Wings...


Anyway, I've heard some rumors that say Bertuzzi and Zetterberg might not play in the first game, but I have also heard they both will play. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.


But the worst news of all, is I have to work on Thursday night... the night of the first game... :(

I am very confident because we have Hasek between the pipes. It is gonna blow not having Kronwall for the run and possibly Zets/Bertuzzi for a little while. I do think Calder will be perfect for the playoffs. Robert Lang and No-Show Datsyuk HAVE to have big playoffs.

It's time Datsyuk shows up for a playoff series..and as long as hasek can stay healthy, this could be a very good year..

I've got the Wings in 6. I think Bertuzzi will have a good series. I've actually heard he will be healthy for every game, but I guess we'll see.

Wings in 5 would be perfect since I just bought Playoff tickets to game 5 at the Joe :p

Calgary will be very tough at home, I am guessing Wings in 6

That's my reasoning for Wings in 6. Calgary has been very tough at home this year, but awful on the road.

What an absolute beat down. Iginla is getting up there for my most hated players. The dude chirps and cheap shots and then doesn't get a shot. Shut the hell up and go back to your loser dressing room. What a clown. Hasek wants to hoist that trophy. It isn't gonna be easy to beat this guy in the playoffs. Great first game for our Wings.

That scrum at the end was wild. I love how Markov came in a piled on top.

Anyone see how Brad Stuart was manhandling the linesman trying to get at Cleary? He must have shoved the linesman in the back 7-8 times. I can't believe the linesman didn't take a swing himself, lol.

I didnt watch the end of it so I missed the scrum, Im unhappy with myself about that!

And hey, Datsyuk had a good game and got a goal, that is a BIG positive. I am hoping Bertuzzi is back soon so he can get teamed with Pavel & Henrik so he can go after some guys who try to screw with our stars.

Also in a hockey related note, making his United States debut for NBC hockey analyst Don Cherry will be teaming with Brett Hull to either call some games or do the between periods stuff. Cherry is the best hockey personality there is it will be good to see him on US TV. He has been doing Hockey Night in Canada for 25 years on CBC.

Todd with those 2 would be a big help. Both his style of play and his demeanor. I think you would see both Hank and Dats get a little more chippy knowing they have that monster on the line with him. It would stop Iginla and Conroy from giving cheap shots to star players. Iginla wanted to fight and I think if Todd was in, he would have went with him.

I guarantee if Todd was there, he and Iginla would have danced. I'm also something of a Vancouver fan(I know, 2 teams in the same conference is stupid) and Bert always stood up for his teammates. I know he gets a bad rap, but I've always like his style of play. I'm looking forward to getting him back. It just gives us another dimension out there.

but at the same time homstrom works so well witht htose two it would be hard to break that line up so it depends if bert can give that line the saame thing as holmstrom

I dont want to discount what Homer does as Im a huge fan of his for a good decade, but I think Todd can be just as effective standing in front of the goalie and being a pain in the ass to the other team. I think a healthy Bertuzzi is a better version of Homer.

Bert should be back today . . . what do you think should be the line combinations? And one forward has to sit out . . . who's it gonna be?

The Lines I'd like to see:
Samuelsson - Zetterberg - Franzen
Calder - Lang - Filppula
Bertuzzi - Datsyuk - Holmstrom
Maltby - Draper - Cleary

Hudler sits out (but what a tough call it is . . . Samuelsson is probably the other option)

I think that more evenly distributes our scoring. We have our super checking line in Drapes, Malts, and Cleary. I don't like having Zetterberg and Datsyuk on the same line . . . spread around the playmakers. Have them kill penalties and play 4-on-4 together, but not on the same line. I like having Filppula on Lang's line so he can take the faceoffs. Lang is terrible at them (won 3, lost 12 in game one).

Thoughts?
