If Abdelkader is in the top 6 instead of Tatar

Is this real life or some sort of cruel joke?

Really confused on the decision making of this organization sometimes. I guess that's why I'm not running things. But like.. cmon..

I think this would be the one time I would be relieved to see Samuelsson in our top six, too bad hes injured as well

6'3 Mule, 6'3 Bertuzzi and 6'2 Samuelsson are injured.

Are we now smaller than the Canadiens?

Seriously, what the ****? How do you justify Cleary on the first line? I'd like to see someone take a shot at this one.

It's called proactive anger- you know you're going to get pissed watching Cleary in the top six, so you just get a head start on it.

Saw the Edmonton game. Not the whole LA game. But Howie's been abysmal against St Louis.

Poor Datsyuk, he had to play alongside Cleary tonight. Better get someone that can actually play on his wing or this guy is not coming back after his contract is up.

Datsyuk has been saddled with Cleary for a few games now. Ever since Bertuzzi went down and Cleary got his goal thats been his spot.

I highly doubt his linemates are going to make a difference in his decision of whether to re-sign or not, if he wants to play NHL hockey he'll stay, if he'd rather wind it down and retire he'll play a year in the KHL.

We need to get healthy and we need to figure out a way to get Cleary out of the line-up, if we accomplish that this team is a pretty good team.

I don't know that I will, but it's definitely possible... Coaching is something that likely enters a player's mind when making decisions.

He seems to get stuck with at least one dead weight far too often. Babcock had Holmstrom on his line for about 2 years too long and now he's stuck with the worst player on the team again.

Babcock is a Zetterberg guy and has always been. If Datsyuk's going over the pros and cons, who's to say that the likelyhood of safeguarding a lousy winger doesn't cross his mind in the option of staying. Whereas he goes back home and is given the young talent to help his game instead of hiding the deficiencies of others like Babs seems to do.

You should probably set your sights a little lower, Flashy, and shoot for curing cancer while ending world hunger. We are talking about cosmic forces beyond our understanding here.

This implies that the Wings would let Nyquist and Tatar play actual minutes

It wasn't much different for him in the KHL, he played with Alexander Radulov and an assortment of other Wingers.

Datsyuk loves the Red Wings and loves playing against the best in the world. If he's still playing at the same level he'll sign another deal, line-mates are something no player can control, as long as the team is talented he'll have talented people to play with.

I'm going to pray we can trade him for a couple of LA's Ice-Girls.

I'd settle for some pictures of them though...otherwise the league may reject the deal as too lopsided.

Maybe a secret plan by Babcock to get Pav to shoot more. He knows Cleary can't handle Pav's passes so he'll just do it himself
