We aren't paying malts to score goals. He is here as a pk specialist. That's why we have a 4th line.
We should stop worrying about the production of drapes and malts, when our star player in zetts hasn't really been the same since that hit by ohlund. It looks like z is afraid to drive the net now... I hope he isn't intimidated.
Datsyuk and Holmstrom are coming around so it's just a matter of time.
Pavel Datsyuk could stickhandle in a phone booth! Johan Franzen could knock over the phone booth!
Todd Bertuzzi, Red Wings begin contract talks
No disrespect to Bertuzzi but I was hoping we'd pass bringing him back. I think he'll want around 2.5-3 million now since he came off a good post season. He seemed invisible in the regular seasons, but played well when we had that injury stretch.
Yeah, I'm on the fence about Bert. He was useful at times, but I don't think we are gonna get anything more than we got out of him this year.
Upside and downside to Bert...He is big, and I think learned from Homer this year playing a lot like his style. He could become even more like him next year which would be very nice to have. Downside is yeah he probably wont produce more, especially since he wont have to carry the brunt of the workload while half our team is injured hah.
I dont see him playing for the wings...But thats just me
Bill Matheson who writes for Edmonton papers has said that the Wings are going to target Colby Armstrong of the Thrashers. He will provide some "sandpaper" for the Wings' third line. He wants a raise from his $2.4M salary to about $3M.
I don't know much about this guy, I know he doesn't score a ton. Anyone have anything on him?
Colby is a bit of a punk but I'm sure I would like him more in a Wings sweater. Not for 3 million though.
Anyways, the roster is crowded as it is, and we need to get the kids in Grand Rapids some looks sooner than later. I have to question our system of over-ripening players right now.
Should also be noted that Colby's brother Riley plays for us in Grand Rapids.
