I don't know who didn't vote for Z as one of the 3 stars.

That should have been unanimous.

It's not Zetterberg's first 5 point game and won't be his last. It won't be forgotten, especially when they show game previews prior to his HOF speech.

I laughed so hard when the nhl network analysts said that Detroit has a potent power play.

tbh this game should have gone to the refs as the 1st star.
Total botch job on that Backes call. Should have been 2min interference or nothing at all..

Wings got lucky.

I honestly wouldn't mind if the 4th line switched minutes with the third line. Emmerton has actually been pretty decent and Tootoo makes a difference everytime he is on the ice. Too bad Babcock's obsession with Cleary and Abdelkader doesnt seem to be ending anytime soon.

3 Stars

1. Zetterberg - 5 points? He is really turning it up a notch this season.
2. Franzen - 3 assists. Was physical all night.
3. Ericsson - Pots a goal & assist. Our #1 D, IMO. That stretch pass to Z was Lidstrom-esque. Big E is really coming into his own this season.

Why is Cleary still in the line-up? The only thing he is good at is being useless and taking penalties.

Our 2nd PP unit is horrendous! Kindl and Smith make me nervous.

The refs didn't care about Z getting interfered with at the end, so that was the blatant make up call, but nobody cares about that since he still scored.

As long as nobody else controls the puck, the passer is still in possession of it and can be hit. In the present case, the receiver already controlled the puck. 2' interference.

Wow they showed up.

Z was awesome, Kronner is still struggling a bit, Smith looking little better, Q makes good plays and bad plays. Get Kindl of the pp point, try some RH shot there. Eaves or even Tootoo lol. I liked how they responded to the physical game.

If E keeps this up he may be worth the contract that provoked all the wailing and gnashing of teeth on here. Holland may actually know what he's doing sometimes.

may be?

****ing Kyle Quincey makes 3.75

the problem all along was people around here drastically underrating the market value of a Jonathan Ericsson

I mean....if you go back to the thread when he signed that extension there's seriously people that were hoping he would sign for like $1.5 million

One great game and he's our future #1?

Good grief.

He didn't even come close to saying E was a #1, just that he was severely underappreciated. Moreover, it's been much longer than just one game. E's been playing better since last year. He's been using that big body of his and his mistakes get fewer and fewer every game.

Jonathan Ericsson is gonna get a massive pay day only because Kyle Quincey is so horrible, he makes everyone around him look like Lidstrom on steroids.

Ericsson is a serviceable stay at home d-man. His hockey IQ does not impress me and I still don't think he is physical enough.

IMO, his level of play prior to signing that extension, and a fair amount of last year, didn't warrant the salary he received. I'm glad he's playing well this year, hopes he keeps it and all of that. I wouldn't expect any player to tell his GM "no, that offer is too much based on my recent play," but he got a VERY generous offer when he signed that extension.

I think you're either letting the first couple games of the season or a personal bias against Quincey cloud your perception of him this season.

Since his terrible start in the first 3 games, he's been one of, if not the most steady of the entire defence corps. He's gone from -4 to +3, leads the team in blocked shots and has only taken one minor penalty.

If he keeps playing like he has in the past 4 games his 3.775M caphit will be a bargain.

I agree with this. I should have put that "being cheeky" emoticon in there to be more clear. I've got a soft spot for E because of all the $h!+ he used to get.

^This. I get a little tired of all the negativity sometimes and when people are proven wrong after pages of their whining not a peep is heard.

How was he underappreciated when he made some of the biggest defensive blunders of any of the team's D?

~Maybe~ finally after 4 years of development, he may turn into a legit top four guy (and let's hope so because it's awesome to have big guy who plays big), but he was appreciated for what he was bringing at the time.

I'm still not sure where to place this guy's ceiling (is he overachieving or underachieving), but he's 29 yrs old. He should be in his prime now.
